"We Sleep Around,
Homeless by Choice"


Susie and Bill Davidson

After thirteen years of world-wide, full-time traveling (Homeless by Choice), we published our first book "We Sleep Around, Homeless by Choice" in May 2015. It shares the first five years of our travels as House and Pet Sitters. We are currently working on the sequel "Still Sleeping Around, a Travel Alternative", and plan for the final book "Done Sleeping Around". Order a signed copy directly from us using the link above, or find it on Amazon. Life is good, God supplies all our needs... 

As "young" retirees, who House/Pet-Sit for YOU - we stay in your home loving and caring for your animals and home as you would, while you travel. House/Pet Sitting allows us the opportunity to visit interesting areas, have short-term pets, and meet new friends. We have a long list of references. Bill and I have provided 132 pet sitting services over the last 13 years, visited 45 states, and several foreign countries.

We have NOT charged for our services, but now in our 16th year of being "homeless", we feel me must set a fee; YOU decide how much. "Tips" have ranged from $35-$80/day. This is MUCH lower than the majority of pet sitters and there is NO per animal fee. You will receive the same personal and loving care. (Tips are GREATLY appreciated .) We are also happy to do airport runs for you. Using your vehicle, we will delivery and pick you up as needed. Thanks for your understanding and trust in us; we hope to work with you and love your animals soon. 

     We try to plan several months in advance, but remain flexible for near-term opportunities. Our house-sitting has included long and short-term. We have stayed as long as 10 months and as short as a weekend. We prefer at least 2 weeks, but book as we can. Some of our sits include...
