Tish at Amore Pet Sitting has been taking care of our two cats (one of whom needs twice-daily insulin shots), pet hedgehog, and many potted plants several times a year for at least the last three years. I'm not sure if you meant that you wanted someone to LIVE in your house--she doesn't do that, but she is very reliable and loves all animals (even seems to love our prickly little hedgie). She's always been available to us, even once when I called her just a few days before Christmas. She charges $20/visit, and does charge time and a half on holidays. Her number is 206-363-9664.
