About Arinn

Hi, I'm Arinn! I work a normal office job and draw a webcomic on the side, but I'd love to spend some extra time with your pets!

I offer service in the West End/Downtown, Strathcona, Fairview, and Kits; and twice a day visits only within the West End (or general downtown for weekends).

Each home visit is 30 min and includes feeding, water change, litter change, and playtime, unless your cat is openly hostile/uncomfortable with my presence, in which case I will make the visit quick so as to not cause them any distress. I will update with photos & a status report on every visit. Each dog walk will also be 30 min.

I’m generally available on weekday evenings (after 430pm) and at any time on weekends. I can’t guarantee a specific time for a home visit unless we discuss it, as I often have multiple clients or other life responsibilities but I do try to visit at a consistent time each day.

Why do I want to care for pets? I love animals! I grew up on a farm, so animals came with the territory, but now I live in the city with my two cats. I grew up with big and small

dogs, and I had my own curmudgeonly hound-retriever mix. I've spent time with senior animals (my own), and am familiar with giving pills, trimming nails, bathing, and have even had to give IVs/injections. I'm comfortable with fussy eaters/special diets. And of course, I've had pets all my life - I know there are sometimes messes to deal with, and that’s okay too.

I'm comfortable with all sizes of dogs, and good leash manners are really important to me. I am comfortable with taking things slow and walking dogs who are learning/need correction - my old dog was a senior rescue and had a lot of issues that it took time and patience to work out.

I also have experience with exotic animals: I had gerbils & hamsters growing up, and have taken care of/spent time with turtles, snakes & other reptiles, rabbits, rats, hamsters, fish/shrimp etc.

She kept us posted and was super caring! Ben is usually a pretty nervous and anxious cat when we travel, but we could tell he was cared for and calm thanks to Arinn! She is our go to!

Arinn was a fantastic sitter for my kitties. My anxious boy very quickly warmed up to her. I would love 100% recommend her care for your kitties. Thank you, Arinn!
