Reference no 2 :
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.

Reference no 3 :
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
During our absence it was extremely hot and dry and Caroline kept the garden watered
and even hauled water to the young trees planted around our 7 acre property.
She kept us updated through email on a regular basis, minimizing the stress associated
with an absence from home. We even got pictures of one of our cats lounging in comfort
amongst her sewing projects.
I would definitely hire Caroline again, and highly recommend her services as a house /
Reference no 5
Caroline has house-sat for us twice, for a long weekend in September 2017 and then for a
month in November/December 2017. On both occasions she looked after our two cats and
one dog, while living and working in our rather remote house. She got along well with the
pets and looked after the house without any problems in our absence. Our dog was clearly
very fond of her after a month. The neighbours she met on dog walks also liked her and two
of them hired her for pet sitting later.
She is totally dependable, well organized and a pleasure to deal with, which is why we
arranged our next trip (March 2018 for two weeks) around her busy schedule.
I have no hesitation in recommending her to look after your house and/or pets, except that
perhaps she will not be available when we next need her!
