About Mia

Pets are my passion! Currently I am owned by two cats, Timber and Oscar. They keep my life busy and interesting. My previous job was at the Calgary Humane Society where I 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 gain your cat's trust!).

Cats are my jam but I also enjoy looking after 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. to make your home look inhabited while you are away. I am available to do visits in the evenings (after work) and anytime on the weekends.

I live near North Hill mall and can visit pets in this area as well as Hillhurst, West Hillhurst, Westmount, Capitol Hill, Brentwood, 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 has been great over the holidays, top notch in all aspects. I think my cat misses her more than he missed me! So nice that Pawshake has allowed me to find someone in my neighbourhood and made the contact and payment so easy.

Mia is fantastic with our cats. Even our shy cat came and checked her out the first time we met. Our cat requires a pill and has not had an issue, as he's a problem cat... Can't say enough good things about Mia.
