I am a passionate animal lover with a 7 year old jack russel and 8 month old bearded dragon of my own! I love animals and have pet-sat for neighbours and family before, and absolutely loved it. I have pet sat 4 or 5 times in the past, so I have some experience with pet-sitting dogs. My services as a pet-sitter would include walks, feeding, play, and anything else owners might ask of me. I can bring in mail and water any plants in the house. I am happy to spend entire days and nights with pets, and will use any home alarms that are available around the house.
I'm generally available for whole days and nights if booked far enough in advance, but afternoons and evenings are when I'm most often available if booked on short notice. I'm happy to sit up to three pets at a time, of any age and size, as long as they are well-behaved and trained. However, I charge an extra $15 a day for an additional dog (I don't charge extra for an additional cat or reptile etc). I also charge $15 for a meet and greet if you'd like to have one for me to meet you and your pet!
If I am staying in someone's home to take care of their pet, I will also be cleaning up after myself and would leave the house as I found it. I love cats, dogs, birds, and reptiles, and would be happy to sit any of these pets as long as I am given instructions on caregiving and know the contact details of nearby vets. I have experience mainly with dogs and reptiles; specifically dogs of small and medium sizes, but I know how to handle bigger dogs too. I'm able to adminster oral medications if your pet is well-trained, and am happy to give them a brush if needed! I have a car and am able to drive if your pet needs pick-ups or drop-offs from appointments.
I believe that Angela is a great sitter, however, I think Angela could use some more experience with Cat sitting. The kitty litter was a mess with “piss cake” in it and old poop still on it and the sand literally till the door step (no exaggeration) Naturally, the house reeked of cat piss and poop and we had to clean the house first thing after coming home from a 20 hours long flight. I felt so bad for our cat Louie. In less than 30 mins, we cleaned the mess that Angela could have easily done it herself anytime during her 2 visits per day in the two weeks of her sitting. We had given Angela a proper instruction in person on how to clean it and how our cat Louie gets anxious and stressed out when the kitty litter is not usable for her. Besides that, The water dispenser was almost empty, not connected properly and had lots of cat hair on it, so Louie didn’t have access to clean drinking water and it’s quite upsetting to see that. Angela has a great personality, and I would still like to believe it was an honest mistake and hope she takes this review with positivity and does a better job for other cats she will take care of in the future.
Angela did an excellent job of looking after our cat, chickens and house for a week while we were away. I would have no hesitation in booking in with her again to help out.
