I have lived almost my whole life with pets! Cats, dogs, hamsters, frogs, fish and birds. I truly feel enjoyment and connection with animals; and yes, I am the kind of person who sees the dog first and then their human! I foster cats through the SPCA and have cared for injured animals and those recovering from surgery. It's not fun for the little guys, but I find cats, and dogs specifically, have resilience and charm when they are on the mend.
I have pet sit for many friends, family and connections over the years and have long-term fostered for cats for the SPCA and acquaintances. I have found all animals have unique personalities, so try to cater to their needs. I completed my Degree in Ecology recently (with the associated debt that comes along with it) - and, unfortunately, due to COVID, I am perpetually in the process of starting my career. Though I would love to have a permanent fuzzy companion, unfortunately, this is just not in the cards
for me yet!
So I look forward to keeping your kitties and puppies company as they miss you terribly while you are away! You will be missed - but I guarantee they will be loved and well cared for in your absence! I am always available by phone when you are away and if you would like an occasional text/pic from your beloved furry friends this will be done! My services include home visits to your pets to feed, cuddle, clean up after them and walkies when required - time at your house will be no less than 30min often much longer. House/pet sitting is also available and subject to COVID restrictions. I will be wearing a mask to meet you at your home. I am available as per my calendar schedule - so please reach out if you need some help and if I can not accommodate your request I will try to find another Pawshake sitter who can.
Lori is the best. She is reliable, communicative, and clearly loves the animals she cares for. While I hate leaving my cats, I rest easier knowing Lori is caring for my little critters and look forward to the photos and updates she sends during her kitty visits. Highly recommend.
Lori did a sterling job. When we came back the place was spotless and our cat looked happy and well cared for. Lori sent us daily messages with updates (and some photos!) as she knows my wife worries about our cat. Easy to talk to (no misunderstandings or confusion as to what was expected), friendly, trustworthy. Highly recommended!
Cuddles, snuggles and ear scratches!
But seriously. As the human, you are the best guide to your pet's welfare and care regime. The rules you set for medication or feeding schedule, exercise and care will be followed.
