Hello! My name is Olivia and I'm in my mid twenties. I work full-time as a Program Officer with the Government of Canada.
I have always loved animals. Through different times of my life I have cared for 1 dog, 2 rabbits, multiple fish, 1 hamster, 3 parakeets and 2 cats!
I currently have 2 cats. Simon is very vocal and energetic - while Lola enjoys naps and bird watching through the windows. I love meeting new animal friends and learning their quirks.
As a teenager, I would cat sit for neighbours while they were away. My mom also fostered pregnant and nursing cats through the Ottawa Humane Society.
My services include:
- A photo update each visit
- Litter scooping
- Food & water (however you do it)
- Play and/or give cuddles (if desired by kitty)
- Spend between 15 - 30 minutes at your home
Feel free to ask me for help with other things too, such as watering plants, feeding fish or bringing in the mail.
I have experience giving cats medication, but I cannot say I am an expert. We can talk about it, but I would be very selective in accepting cats with medical needs.
I charge $25 per visit and my availability includes weekday evenings and weekends. I have a vehicle so if your home is not easily accessable by bus, it is not an issue. I can provide service to Gatineau, Plateau, Hull, and Cantley.
I have a 3 visit minimum. A free meet & greet and house key drop-off upon your return will be arranged.
Communication is key so if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out!
Olivia took care of our cat Sammy in Spring 2022. She came over for a visit beforehand, and she was very attentive and clearly cared about cats, Sammy instantly warmed up to her, which doesn't always happen! Olivia carefully noted all the information we provided about Sammy’s care and asked thoughtful questions. Unfortunately, due to a covid mess, we had to cancel our original plans and Olivia was very patient and understanding as we worked through modifying the reservation with Pawshake. We rescheduled at a later time with Olivia, and we had an amazing experience. She was very communicative, sending photos and messages at every visit. When we ran out of poop bags for the litter, she even brought over some of her own. Olivia also very kindly put out our garbage bins and brought them back in for us. We felt so reassured having her take care of Sammy while we were away, and definitely plan on continuing to work with her in the future. We would recommend Olivia to other pet parents looking for an attentive sitter!
Outstanding service. Olivia obviously loves animals and is fully thrustworthy. She took great care of our 3 cats, sent pictures every day, made us feel that our animals were fully taken care of. She even put the garbage to the curb on garbage day. I would put 6 starts if I could. Do not hesitate to hire her.
I have reliability security clearance as required for my job.
