About Alena

I've been taking care of my friend's and acquaintance's pets for years and find it very rewarding. I developed long-term relationships with many of them, and they each have a special place in my heart. I can't have my own pet for different reasons, but friendships with animals make me truly happy.

It fascinates me how different and unique all the animals are, with their innate dispositions and acquired habits. I enjoy finding ways to connect with a cat or a dog. I like to understand the special needs of every animal I take care of. Some need more space, others a lot of attention which I can happily provide. If they enjoy it, I'd be glad to play with them, brush and pet. If not I will try my best to make them feel comfortable and I'll follow provided instructions regarding their preferences. I'm most comfortable with cats, I have experience with taking care of senior cats as well as feeding baby kittens from a bottle. I can administer oral medication and insulin injections.

I know how hard it is to separate with a beloved pet, and I provide daily updates with photos and videos, so the owners can have peace of mind. I'm a quiet person and I'm respectful to the places I'm visiting or staying. I understand that it's not easy to let a stranger into your home, but I hope I can continue to prove myself as a responsible care taker and find long term connections through Pawshake.

Alena was AMAZING with my two cats. One of my cats required medicine, both liquid and pills, and she was able to accommodate that without issues. She sent many updates and pictures throughout the day which was extremely appreciated. I will definitely be using Alena again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a cat sitter :)

Alena looked after our cat Frida for 2 weeks and was an excellent cat-sitter. She spent lots of time with her and stayed in regular communication with daily updates of pics and videos. We recommend Alena wholeheartedly!
