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.
We are a couple in our mid 30s, love being in nature and being around animals. I grew up with a dog (Pomeranian mix) and have looked after 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. 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.

Linda is really good in taking care of my two paw babies. I'll definitely book again if we are going for a trip where my babies can't go with us.
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.
I can offer Reiki (energy healing) to animals as an added service
