Caroline Trepanier was our house sitter and took care of our 2 cats between October 2018 and January 2019 (3 months). We were a bit nervous to leave our furry friends for such a long period of time but we soon realized that they were in good hands. Caroline is an extremely responsible, caring, and trustworthy house sitter. She took such good care of both our cats, brushing, petting and cuddling them daily. They quickly became comfortable with her. One of our cats got quite sick while we were away and she was very quick to help him, offering to bring him to the vet and giving him all the necessary medication (he is fine now).
She also took amazing care of our house and garden, raking the leaves and picking up fallen apples. The house was in a perfect condition when we came back.
Caroline was staying at our house during the wind storm of December 2018. She was without power for 9 days, had to deal with fallen trees around our house and power lines across the driveway. It was an extremely stressful time for her and she handled it amazingly. She took all our food from the freezer and brought it to a friend who had power so no food would be wasted. She was also very good to find people who would come to cut the fallen tree and deal with the power line on the ground.
During our entire 3-month trip she was very good to keep us updated on how everything was going at home. We also appreciated the pictures of our mail, allowing us to see what needed to be dealt with right away.
We highly recommend Caroline for house sitter/pet sitter. She is excellent and you won’t regret hiring her. We can only hope she will house/cat sit again next time we go away.

I would highly recommend Caroline Trepanier for pet and house sitting.
She stayed in our house looking after our three Himalayan cats on Salt Spring Island from mid-May until mid-July in 2018.
She is an extremely responsible, caring and trustworthy person. She went beyond house sitting and pet sitting by watering our garden and sending us constant pictures of our cats as well as the house and garden.
Our cats were lovingly groomed and extremely well looked after. They fell in love with her and now when she comes to our house for a visit they always greet her very warmly.
We would have no hesitation asking her to come back care for our pets and home. There were no issues nor problems.
You may contact us if you have questions.

Caroline Trepanier was our house sitter from December to March 2018 and I can highly recommend her. She cared for our four cats with tenderness and excellent grooming. She kept us posted regularly about our mail, telephone calls, news, and the cats’ antics. One thing that I liked was that she sent us photos of the envelopes so that I could easily see what had arrived. She would, at our request, open and photography any mail that needed attention and follow-up. The house was well maintained and clean on our return.
Caroline was attentive to our requests and very easy to work with on all matters. Please consider her for your next house sitter.

Caroline Trepanier looked after our house and cats for us from July 17, 2018 until
August 7, 2018. She did a wonderful job and I was extremely satisfied with her work.
The cats were happy, well fed and very well groomed when we got back. One of our
cats in particular, loved her and the attention she gave him.
The house was spotless upon our return. The day before we left we noticed ants
coming into the house, she dealt with the problem and it was resolved by the time we

The waters around our island are experiencing another push for industrialization. Freighters started anchoring at our island. Similar to a factory or refinery they are bringing industrial pollution – chronic engine and generator noise, lights, air and water pollution.

Whether or not you have easy access to laundry […]
