Growing up, I always loved animals and felt drawn to them (at parties I often became distracted by any pets, hanging out quietly in the corner with the family dog or cat). Over the years, I have had the opportunity to pet-sit for friends and friends of friends. I have looked after and lived with cats, rabbits and fish. I have recently returned from a working holiday in the UK, where I had the opportunity to look after more cats and an African Grey parrot while house-sitting. During a stint providing care-giving services for an elderly client living on a remote island, I was also able to help out with the ducks, chickens and wonderful dog that lived with the family. I am a responsible and friendly individual, who is a good listener and observer. I also love spending time in nature, and enjoy various creative pursuits, including writing and illustration. I draw a great deal of inspiration from being outdoors and connecting to other living beings- from admiring a beautiful tree and listening to and identifying different birds, to interacting with a dog's boundless energy, or curling up with a cat and a good book. I suppose I am motivated to pursue pet-sitting, partly because of the energy and joy (and inspiration as mentioned above) that animals give me. My current living situation is not suited for having a pet of my own, so I suppose it's also a way of being close to animals and sharing in those sorts of interactions and relationships inspite of not having a pet. Additionally, I have a flexible schedule right now, which makes it easier to provide these services, and to take on this opportunity. I feel comfortable providing pet-sitting services to a wide range of animals. I don't have a car, but I am quite adept at getting around using public transit, within a reasonable distance from my house. I can show up at your home to take care of your beloved pet's needs, including dog walks, overnight stays, and housesitting in general. I am currently not able to take care of your pet at my home. I understand that providing pet care is a unique experience every time, depending on the needs and personality of each animal. I look forward to meeting you and your furry/feathered/scaly friend/s. Thank you!!!
Andrea was excellent - thorough, punctual, and responsible. She stayed in our home and took great care of our cats while we were away for a week.
We received daily updates, which was very much appreciated and the cats were clearly very comfortable with her. Andrea took great care of our home as well. Highly recommended.
Andrea was amazing! I was so uneasy not knowing Andrea and last minute needing someone to watch Our dog in our home. She came for a meet and greet that same day I messaged her. She was so easy going and caring. I wavered back and forth about Andrea staying in our home vs just letting our dog out a couple times. She was very patient and understanding. She did everything as asked. Sent pictures of Boston when away and text me frequently to let me know that everything was going great! Honestly I had to trust someone I did not know come and stay 3 nights in my home and all I can say is she was awesome and she will put your mind at ease and you can definitely trust her! I will definitely use her again in the future:)
