Pets are my passion...since as far back as I can remember I have been surrounded by animals-whether covered in fur, feathers, scales, or any combination of the above. I have always lived with at least one dog; a maximum of three but an average of two dogs. They were always a treasured part of my family. In fact, dogs are my favorite people! My heart connects deeply to their souls and caring for them is as natural to me as breathing. I have advocated for animals (including being a vegan) and for their just treatment since childhood. I volunteered at shelters, vet clinics, did a co-op placement at a pet shop and canvassed for the Toronto Humane Society. I am loving, honest and respectful to all living beings and caring for pets is a natural calling for me... I love the great outdoors and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes is one of my favorite pastimes!

Laurie is a natural cat master and did such an amazing job at making sure our Little one was fed, loved, and cared for. She provided frequent updates and photos, and showing how much our cat opened up to her (which isn’t always the case as our cat is quite shy). Our cat was in better health after Laurie spent time with her! There was never a moment of doubt that our loved one was in great hands!
Laurie is a fantastic cat sitter. She was easy to communicate with and she sent updates and pics everyday. It shows that she loves animals and I felt that my cat was very well taken care of.
I am experinced both personally and professionally with dogs cats birds and all small animals I experienced with all ages and most medical conditions.
