Welcome to my website, and thanks for checking it out. My name is Lorraine Murphy, and I love animals, travel, and my crazy career as a cybersecurity journalist.
I’m an experienced pet-sitter and house-sitter who has been at this full time since 2012, part-time off and on for decades. I offer house sitting, pet sitting (live in), dog walking, drop-in cat care, and even hobby farm or B&B/Inn management
Prices start at $30 per day, which includes care for one pet: generally it’s $10 per additional pet but it varies by the amount of care the pets need. Fish, for instance, are $10 a tank, not $10 each. Additional responsibilities are negotiable, and long-term bookings are eligible for a discount.
À la carte dog walking is $20 per hour, dog walk/running is $30 per hour. Cat drop-in care is $20 per visit.
About me: responsible, non-smoking, non-partying Vanity Fair journalist. Former innkeeper, former horse and dog trainer. Human and veterinary first aid training. Self-starter.
References out the wazoo after years of doing this professionally. Experience and local references specifically in Alfred, Nepean, the Okanagan, Victoria, Vancouver, Tofino, and Powell River, BC.
50% deposit holds your booking. 25% of the total is due once I arrive, and the remaining 25% the day I leave, unless we make other arrangements in advance. I accept cash, http://Paypal.me/raincoaster, or email interac e-transfer.
