My name is Laura and I've had cats and dogs in my home since I was born. Spending any free time with my pets was always a priority of mine and they all shaped who I am as a person. I moved to Toronto from Calgary in 2015 and as soon as I could, I adopted a cat to keep me company in the big city. I now have two cats that are never not given heaps of attention.

My specialty: home-sitting and visits for cats
Joined pawshake community June 2022 ❤️
I will delegate 1 hr of time for each home visit. During visits I’ll make sure feeding, cleaning pet dishes, changing water, cleaning litter box(es), puke clean-up, cuddling, and play time all get taken care of. I will also water plants, bring in mail, and do other various small tasks as requested.
I understand that owners don't want their cats to get lonely while they're away. I think house sitting is a great way to make sure our furry friends get enough love, attention, and care. I always make sure owners' comfort is priority and that private spaces are respected. I take pride in leaving a house in the exact same condition I left it (unless otherwise specified). I will do all the expected responsibilities as I would in a regular house visit (see above). I expect owners to provide some necessities for me to stay including wifi access, bedding, shower access, and towels. I will likewise wash anything used if I am given access to laundry and I will take out any trash.
After boarding dogs a couple times in our apartment, we will NOT be offering boarding in the future. I ask that owners that are looking for boarders, please treat the people you are entrusting the care of your dog to with respect and punctuality. These boarders are giving you far better service than a kennel at the expense of their own home. It is your job to respect the dates you have booked and be completely honest about your dogs' behaviour.
I've looked after friends' and neighbours' animals before and I've always received positive feedback. I make sure the animals I'm responsible for get love, attention, and play time. It's always great getting to spend time with animal friends and making sure they are well cared for so their owners can rest easy.
I've booked sitters previously on pawshake and have always had a wonderful experience and I thought joining the service would be a great opportunity to explore Toronto and meet new friends and furry babies.
I studied Fashion Communication at Toronto Metropolitan University (FKA Ryerson) and have a B.A. in Design. I'll be returning to school in September to study Jewellery Design at George Brown.
To me, the perfect job involves spending even more time with animals. It's been a great opportunity to meet new people and their furry babies.
**Note for owners: If you are on your trip and have booked me for your pet but plan to extend your trip past the time booked, please understand that I have made other commitments to clients around days booked. I may not be able to extend a booking while it is already in progress but I will do my best to make it work, but please do not depend on it. I understand emergencies happen, but please try to honour the dates booked to the best of your ability.**
** I will only take local clients that live within the city of Toronto/downtown Toronto as I do not own a car. **
COVID-19 procedures: I am fully vaccinated (4 doses) and will wear a mask for the duration of the meet and greet. I'm happy to send over my vaccination record if requested.
Laura was an absolute godsend. Our two kitties instantly took a liking to her and she was very good about send emails and photo updates in the evening. We came home to two happy healthy kitties.
My boyfriend and I were away for a few days and were uneasy about leaving our cats alone, so we turned to Pawshake. After meeting Laura, we knew she'd take good care of our two cats, and we couldn't have asked for a better sitter! She stopped by our home twice a day to check on our girls, sending us photos and updates each time. One of our cats generally takes up to a week to get comfortable with new people, but Laura got her in just a few visits! Our minds felt at ease while we were away thanks to Laura. We'll be booking with her again if ever we need a cat sitter!
