Hi there! My name is Cynthia and I am a huge animal lover. Since becoming a pet caretaker in spring 2018, I have worked with a large range of cats and dogs, including puppies, kittens, anxious pets, rescues, those requiring oral medications, pets who eat raw, wet, and dry foods, and elderly dogs and cats. I am very happy to send pictures/video and updates throughout your time away.
I am hoping to put my care and attentive skills to good use taking care of your fluffy loved ones. I would love nothing more than to pet your cat by a rainy window or walk with your dog along a trail! I am mature and responsible, with lots of love and care to share.
I offer pet sitting in your home, 30/45/60 minute dog walks, and house visits of usually 30 minutes. Pets will be fed, water changed, litter cleaned, and as much love and affection and playtime as the pets would like! If you have a cat who does not like strangers I can also provide quiet respectful company or keep my visits shorts so as not to disturb them. My services can also include photo/video updates daily, plant watering, bringing in mail, and other housekeeping tasks for no extra charge.
I am fluent in both canine and feline body language, and I know how positively animals respond to a warm, calm, respectful presence. Your pets can peacefully relax in their own home and you can relax knowing they are being well taken care of.
Please note that I work 9am-5pm Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in Olympic Village in Mental Health Care Coordination. I may be able to visit pets during my lunch break midway through the day depending on travel time. On days when I'm not working, I'm happy to spend as much time with your pets as they need.
I am fully vaccinated.
Given the current situation, I have adopted some policies for housesitting, home visits, and dog walking to help reduce the potential spread of the virus. I have training in infection control and sanitary hygiene procedures.
At your request, I will:
- remove outerwear at the door and wash my hands thoroughly immediately upon entering
- wash/disinfect doorknobs, light switches, litter scoop handles, alarm buttons, anything else I might touch before leaving
- happily adopt an alternative cleaning/disinfecting procedure if you have one you prefer
- inform you immediately if I am feeling unwell, offer a full refund, and assist in finding a replacement sitter/walker
Please feel free to reach out with inquiries, I am happy to meet up virtually or over the phone with no commitments to make sure it's a good fit.
Cynthia took great care of our two dogs while we were away for an extended weekend. She is very warm & approachable and she quickly developed rapport with both of my husband & myself and the dogs during our meet and greet. We felt very comfortable having her stay in our home while we were away and she was happy to water & bring in the mail in addition to taking care & walking the dogs. Cynthia sent daily updates and photos.
Cynthia did a fantastic job. I felt very good knowing my cat was in great hands :)
