About Mia

**** Update April 2022: To my past clients, I'm sorry to say that I have moved away from the deep south and currently live in the inner city NW area. Thank you for the trust you held in me as I looked after your pets over the past few years. If you need a sitter in the future please send me a message for recommendations.

Pets are my passion! Currently I am owned by two cats: Oscar and Timber, as well as a Red Heeler mix named Chevy. They all keep my life busy and interesting. My full-time job is at the Calgary Humane Society where I have gained lots of training and practical experience in both feline and canine body language as well as general animal handling. Fear-free training is what I have learned at this job - this is something that resonates with me personally. This means I will treat your pets with compassion and respect (and offer slow blinks to your cat to gain trust!).

Cats are my jam but I also enjoy other small animals such as bunnies, guinea pigs, ferrets, pocket pets, small birds, and fish. If you need your pets to be checked on, fed, and played with - whether it's just one day or several days - I would love to be able to help you out! I am available for 1 visit/day and will stay for at least 45 minutes each visit. Upon request I will also bring in mail/flyers, turn on/off lights, open/close curtains, etc. in order to make your home look inhabited while you are away. I am available to do visits in the evenings (after work) and almost anytime on Sundays and Mondays.

I live in Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill. I can visit pets in this neighborhood as well as Hillhurst, West Hillhurst, Westmount, Capitol Hill, and Banff Trail. I might be open to other areas close by, send me a message to inquire.

I hope to meet you and your pet/s very soon!

Mia continues to be the best pet sitter that we could have asked for. I believe this is the 5th or 6th time that she has looked after my cats and I will continue to use her services as long as she is still in the pet sitting business. Mia not only allows us to have a care free vacation, she also brought in a number of packages that we had delivered into our home, threw out the kitchen trash and our house was cleaner than when we left! She is truly caring and compassionate when it comes to our cats and she has a wealth of knowledge and experience working with animals. I always welcome any suggestions she has on finding a different litter or trying a different formulation of medicine because she is usually right :) thank you for taking such amazing care of our cats as always!
