About Paula

I am a working female in my early thirties who has grown up with pets all my life. I have cared for cats, dogs, hamsters and fish starting at 8 years old. I absolutely love animals and have been actively pet sitting since 2017, starting with my own hairstyling clientele and growing my business from there. I offer day drop-ins, as well as overnight care.

I am patient, caring, and have an intuitive sense around animals and can anticipate the needs of pets around me. I am comfortable with pets of all ages, most of my animals have lived up to 18 years old (my cats) and up to 12 years old (my dogs.) I am comfortable with multiple animals in one household, as some of my clients have more than one pet.

My dog walks last 45 minutes to 1 hour, and can be done up to two times per day. Cat interaction and play time is continuous throughout the day until the cat gets bored/tired. My home visit times can be flexible depending on what the client would like. Minimum an hour per visit, but can be as long as needed before and after work (Tuesday-Saturday) and any length of time during my days off (Sunday-Monday.)

I am an excellent choice for a pet sitter, and am very dependable when animals are left in my care. I own my own vehicle and am flexible with hours and location. I am comfortable cleaning litter, walking, giving medication when needed, nail clipping, eye cleaning, brushing and feeding. I am trustworthy when given detailed instructions such as food measurement preferences, time of day for walks, down to where the pet is comfortable sleeping at night.

I am excited to grow my clientele and hope you chose me to be your pet sitter!

This was the first time that i used Paula to look after my cat and she was fabulous! My cat, Jinx, was healthy and happy when I came home and it was obvious that Paula had taken very good care of him.
