House sitter in Ballwin, Missouri

Introduction In April of 2015, when I took my job that allowed me to work from home, I did not know where I wanted to live. I thought about two of my family vacations from years past. I realized some of my favorite memories were from these trips traveling around the country. After some consideration, I decided to move home upon the completion of my Master's and save some money to travel across the United States during the 2016 calendar year. Hard to believe I am almost to the end of my journey! The trip has been a blast! With my travels finishing up, I am now looking for slightly different things in a house sit. I am looking for longer term house sits that are close to the city where I end up moving to in January. This will be out west, but is not entirely decided yet. A house with a strong internet connection is preferred in order to allow me to work from home. Pets are not a "must", but are highly encouraged as they will provide me company while working from the house for 8 hours each week day. Why we want to house sit UPDATE: One of the biggest takeaways I have from my housesits thus far has been the people I have met. Every new house has connected me with some amazing people...and I can't wait to meet some more as I continue House Sitting, even if it is not quite as often in 2017! House Sitting has provided me the opportunity to work from home in locations that I have not been able to visit in my life. The opportunity to become a local in a variety of cities over the past year throughout the United States would not have been possible without House Sitting. Our family has always been cat owners, and I will certainly be a dog owner in short order following my trip across the US. This will also allow me to fulfill my love of animals as I know owning a dog is not ideal while traveling the country. What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience UPDATE: I have now housesat 9 different times on my travels to bring me up to 11 times in the past 12 months. I have taken care of everything from chickens to a pitbull. The experiences have mostly involved cats and dogs, but I am open to any experiences the world might throw at me in 2017! In preparation for my trip around the country, I housesat three times towards the end of 2015. The first opportunity was someone I knew to get the experience before venturing out. The second one was a nice house on a lake with three dogs. My primary responsibility was caring for the dogs which I walked every evening and most mornings. I found the opportunity through a housesitting site. The second opportunity was a wonderful home in a nice suburb. I found this opportunity through TrustedHousesitters. This house had 2 dogs and 2 cats. Again, the primary responsibility was caring for the animals. I walked the dogs each day and tried to spread the love around at home so none of the animals felt left out. I am looking forward to another house sit in 2016 that I found on TrustedHousesitters also with three cats. Housesitting has been a lot of fun for me so far. Both the animals and owners have been great! I am looking forward to many more in 2016!
