***DURING COVID I WILL BE FOLLOWING ALL SAFETY PROCEDURES INCLUDING WEARING A MASK TO YOUR HOME AND USING HAND SANITIZER BEFORE AND AFTER ATTENDING. I AM COVID FREE AND WILL LET YOU KNOW ASAP IF I HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO A SYMPTOMATIC PERSON OR AM FEELING ANY SYMPTOMS MYSELF***
Let me start by saying I already love your cat. I have 3 giant furballs at home and love them deeply; they, in turn, enrich my life beyond words. But... I also love everyone else's cats and would fill up my house with more if my wallet would let me! Lol
I am devoted to GREAT pet care, and am always learning more as I go! I am open-minded, accommodating, and devoted to best practices for cat nutrition and behavioural needs. I will take my cue from your instructions at our meet and greet (free as part of my services), since YOU are your cat's best expert!
I have approximately 25 years of responsible, healthy pet ownership, 7 years of specific medical needs care, 3 years of pet sitting experience, and 2 years of fostering elderly, pregnant, nursing, and weaning cats in my tool belt.
I am: thorough, responsible, reliable, dedicated, friendly, accommodating, and pet-welfare-centred!
Choosing me for your cat sitter will guarantee that your kitty is closely monitored for any issues and be well provided with attention and play while toure gone! I will make sure your furbaby gets the level of care and attention that you yourself would provide so you and your pet(s) can have a stress-free holiday or work trip 🤗
Each cat visit will be approximately 60 minutes and will include:
*feeding & watering (bowls washed each time)
*sweeping around litter & food areas
*brushing (if appropriate)
*cuddles/pettings (as allowed by cat)
*daily Pawshake or text updates on your pet’s wellbeing and general health with pictures and videos
*positive interactions ONLY, I do not employ punishment!
*FREE plant watering, fish feeding, pet garbage removal, and mail pickup if needed!
I offer 3 different service rates:
$17/visit for only feeding/watering of just plants/fish/rodents. Mail pickup and garbage removal included free :)
$20/visit for 1-2 cats, OR reptiles, OR rodents requiring more than just water/feeding. Included free: mail pickup, garbage removal, a small amount of plants, and fish. $42 for 2 daily visits.
$24/visit for 3-4 cats OR 1-2 cats + reptiles/rodents.
Included free: mail takeout, garbage removal, a small amount of plants, fish.
$54 for 2 daily visits.
Please ask me if you need a custom fee schedule not listed here for special circumstances/setups, I’ll be glad to do my best to accommodate you :)
*please note there will be a $20 last minute booking fee if booking less than 48hrs in advance because a meet and greet is required before commencing my services*
**please also note that each visit will be $2 extra for a gas surcharge if you live outside the Anthony Henday ring road**
MORE ABOUT ME:
I adopted all 3 of my cats from rescues, and have fostered cats for rescue agencies for about 2 years before I "foster failed" and adopted my 3rd cat (one of the kittens I was fostering), leaving no room to foster more for now, but I love spending time with cats and would LOVE to help you care for your cat while you're away or busy!
Sadly, one of my sweet kittens has a lot of food allergies, skin issues, and is a picky eater to boot! This took a lot of time and effort to figure out, meaning I had to become somewhat of a cat nutrition and behaviour guru lol Because of this I am uniquely in tune with cat behaviour and experienced in oral, topical, and subdermal medicine admininistration (if your sweetie needs this while you're gone, I have the experience). I am also adept at preparing and serving different meal requirements to multiple cats at once, so if this is something your cats need, I'm a pro! haha
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask! I look forward to helping you and your furry family!
We use Alice quite often to take care of our old lady cat. Who is very needy and affectionate and just loves Alice! We feel very secure knowing that our cat is so well taken care of by Alice while we are away. She always goes above and beyond to make sure Stinky is givin that little bit of extra attention she loves. Alice has always been very accommodating as sometimes we are a bit short notice so we appreciate that greatly. Alice send us lots of photos, videos and updates, especially of cuddles and playing.
These are my cat-specific skills:
I also have: a clean driving record and clean security checks for the last 8 years (required for other jobs I've held)
