I have been pet sitting on here since 2017 and have had the opportunity to care for some amazing cats and dogs in that time. I started because my apartment building didn’t allow me to have pets of my own, so borrowing others pets seemed like a good solution! I have since moved and adopted a lovely cat named Nora, who joins me on adventures to parks around my neighbourhood in her backpack.
I grew up always having both a cat and a dog and love both equally, along with all other creatures both great and small. This job has even led to my Mom adopting one of the cats I took care of several times over a couple years when his owners were no longer able to keep him (he’s the orange tabby eating my hair in pics!).
I am based in Mission and have regular clients throughout the inner city. As I use a bicycle for transportation (summer and through winter), sometimes combined with transit, I am only available for services in certain areas. I always cover Mission/Cliff-Bungalow, Erlton, Ramsay, Inglewood, Bridgeland, East Village, Downtown, Victoria Park, Beltline, Sunalta, Lower Mount Royal, Elbow Park, Rideau and parts of Bankview/Mount Royal. In summer, my range is extended and in winter, it can depend on where exactly you're located. Please don't hesitate to ask if you're unsure - the logistics are very flexible!
I am available any day (unless marked as unavailable) for one or two visits per day as well as housesitting overnights. During the summer months, I am also available for dog walks (this is due to a knee injury and the risk of ice).
Visits vary in length depending on the pet but always include feeding and fresh water, litter scooping, and the opportunity to play or cuddle. This averages 25 to 40 minutes or so.
Carla was able to feed and medicate my cat when I had to book a fairly last minute sitter. I came home to a clean home and a healthy cat!
Carla has been taking wonderful care of my cats every time i book with her. She has a genuine connection with them and is truly reliable. I would refer her to my friends anytime!
