About Linda

Hi Everyone!

My name is Linda and I have a soft spot for all animals whether they are furry, finned, feathered or scaly :)

I am a responsible, caring and detail-oriented person.

I know what it is like to worry about the well-being of your pet(s) while away, so we are here to help give you peace of mind and to keep them happy and healthy.

We have a lot of spare time at the moment and are happy to help out fellow pet lovers.

About Us

We are a couple in our mid 30s, love being in nature and being around animals. I grew up with a dog (Pomeranian mix), various small animals (hamsters, degus, rat, chinchilla), fish, and hermit crabs.

I have experience caring for other small animals/exotics, as well as birds and small reptiles from working P/T at a pet store for 7 years.

That role involved feeding specialised diets, sanitizing cages and equipment, aquarium water changes, administering medication, and product knowledge.

My partner grew up with a lab cross and has had rescued cats all his life.

We are comfortable with and can administer medications and look after other special needs if this is required.

We currently have a young male cat that we adopted from the SPCA in early September 2018.

Location & Home

We are a 10 min walk from Burnaby Lake and also a city park.

We have a fully fenced deck that is about 280 sq ft in size and approximately 1,000 sq ft of indoor space over two floors; the stairs may be challenging for senior pets or pets with disabilities. We have laminate floors throughout.

**For home visits and housesitting, additional charges will be discussed for driving time exceeding 20 min for each one-way journey.

Thank you for your understanding.**

    Linda has done an amazing job taking care of our dear cat, Cardo!. We’re so happy we found her. She’s great, easy to communicate with, kept us updated in every visit. Cardo had a good time with her while we’re away for few days, he looks very happy and content in every photos and videos she sent to us.

    She is highly recommended and we’ll definitely book her again in the future.
