About Carla

I have been pet sitting on here as my main job since 2017. I 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 I use a bicycle to visit all my clients (summer & winter). My service area is the Inner City including Mission/Cliff-Bungalow, Erlton, Ramsay, Inglewood (to Blackfoot), Bridgeland, Sunnyside, Hillhurst, Westmount, West Hillhurst (most of), Beltline (East Village all the way to Sunalta) Lower Mount Royal, Elbow Park, Rideau, Roxboro, Parkhill, the lower part of Bankview by 17th, and Lower Mount Royal.

Please see the service area map in my profile. Anywhere within the green is good to go most of the year. The blue areas are normally fine, but if my schedule is busy in the winter time, I may not be able to cover it. Orange is schedule/weather dependent, but please ask! If you're beyond those borders, feel free to ask but I am likely not available.

Home visits vary in length depending on the pets but always include feeding and fresh water, litter scooping, and the opportunity to play or cuddle. Some cats aren't very keen on the latter, so I may just make sure they are around and well before I go. Others can play all day and if I have nowhere else to be, that's been known to happen! I cap visits at 30 min during busy times unless otherwise agreed.

Housesitting is overnight and location dependent as I need to be able to come home during the day. I do evaluate on a case by case basis, and am flexible with what is required and what times I would need to be at the house.

Carla was prompt in replying and the cats were happy when we returned home. We feel we can be away and feel confident that the kitties are well cared for by Carla.

Carla is a fantastic cat sitter, she provided excellent care to our cat who is 16 years old and takes meds 2x a day. Everything was kept clean and with lots of food and water. She was available on relatively short notice when we realized we needed a cat sitter and communicated with us promptly to set up the cat sitting. Gave us peace of mind that Marie was in good hands while we were away. Thanks Carla, we appreciate it!!
