About Sumati

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by! I'm a Technical Writing professional in Vancouver, Canada. Originally from Ontario, I've lived the majority of my life in a home that was fulfilled by the presence of some pretty awesome animals. Over the span of twenty-five years, I've been privileged by the companionship of Budgies, Cockatiels, Love Birds, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, a Jack Russel Terrier, two Yorkshire Terriers, and four endearing cats. Each and every one of them are nothing less than family in my home - this perspective has taught me so much about the value of life, what it means to be empathetic, and how to express compassion and understanding in ways that may be universally understood. Further, I've come to appreciate the high level of commitment that is required of us, for our pets to live fulfilling lives.

As an outdoors enthusiast, I am fortunate to dwell in such an inspirational city as Vancouver; however I miss the presence of pets in my life. The truth is, my life is quite dynamic at the moment so I can't reasonably commit to raising a pet. It just wouldn't be fair to them. However, I do have the capacity to help others with their pets. I've had plenty of experience caring for, and entertaining, my friends' pets. I'm at a point where I'd like more opportunities to provide care, which is why I'm here!

I can visit your pet in the Downtown Vancouver area in the morning and evening, before and after work, as well as on weekends.

My Services include:

  • Dog/cat walking - minimum 30 minutes
  • Hang-out/snuggle time - minimum 30 minutes
  • Refreshing water; feeding raw, wet, and/or dry food
  • Checking litter box and ensuring surrounding area is clean
  • Training practice
  • Checking nails and trimming if needed
  • Brushing and ear cleaning
  • Administering meds (oral meds, ear drops, ointments)
  • Regular updates via text/email, including pictures of us having fun!
  • I can also check your mail and water your plants
For your leash-trained pupper or backpack trained kitty, I offer day hikes usually on weekends (includes transport within Downtown Vancouver).

Inspired by the principles taught by my pets - I commit to giving the utmost of care and attention to your pets as though they were my own.

Please drop me a line if you have any questions or would like to inquire. I look forward to meeting you and your companions!

Cheers,

Sumati

Sumi was absolutely amazing! She sent me real time updates and took amazing care of my dog Penny while I was away. Penny was super happy and tired out when I got home. She even offered to take Penny out for a hike or to the beach too. I appreciate how thoughtful Sumi is and she was incredible with my pet. If you’re looking for a top notch pet sitter, she is your person. She’s absolutely wonderful, sweet, and experienced. I’ll definitely book her again! Thanks Sumi! Really appreciate it

Sumati was fantastic with my kitten. She provided thorough updates and I could see how happy and comfortable my little guy was with her.
