Hello! I'm a lifelong cat parent with four cats of my own. I am known as a Crazy Cat Lady to everyone I know. My four cats are my furbabies, and I treat every cat as if they were my own. I want to help other people with cat care, either while they're away or if a helping hand is needed often.
I offer cat sitting services in the Niagara region, I am located in St. Catharines. My services include drop-in visits to your home where I check in on your cat(s) and make sure their food and water are refilled, litter is cleaned, and that they enjoy some playtime!
My visits are 30 minutes for $20, or 60 minutes for $30. If a longer stay is required, pricing can be discussed.
I have experience with feeding multiple cats at once, adding supplements to wet food, mixing more than one type of food, cleaning multiple litter boxes at once, cleaning out litter boxes and refilling with fresh litter, cleaning up dry and wet cat messes almost daily, and everything else required to take care of multiple cats. I'm a huge cat lover and thoroughly enjoy spending time with any cat I meet!
I am certified in Pet First Aid and CPR through St. John's Ambulance (certificate can be provided), and I previously worked in a veterinary clinic as a receptionist where I gained valuable knowledge in pet health. I am also a member of Pet Sitters International and I am insured and bonded through PROfur. I am confident that I am able to provide the best care possible to cat(s) in my care.
I schedule a meet and greet with each new client before the scheduled cat sitting to ensure that the cat owner(s) and cat(s) are a good fit. I look forward to meeting you and your fur baby!
Michelle was amazing, very understanding and diligent.
I cannot say enough good things about Michelle and the excellent care she gave to my 3 kitty cats!
Just before my 2 week adventure to Egypt, my 20 year old cat who's diabetes had been in remission became full blown diabetic again. I was a basket case to say the least! Michelle took amazing care with him and the other 2 cats. Although she did not actually administer the insulin shots (I had someone else that came to do just that for him) she communicated beautifully with this person and when I came home my kitty Dexter was still with us! It was so brave on her to take on this task on such short notice. I know that had we had more time prior to my trip, I could have shown her how to give the shots herself and she would have done fine with that too! I fully believe that in the near future, since she has recently begun working in a vet clinic she will be able to provide this service as well!
When we came home my cats were happy, relaxed and although I know they missed us I'm know they enjoyed her visits with them. Their area in our basement for litter boxes was clean and smelled good!( Lol) Michelle sent me pictures daily and every day she left notes for the other care giver so they could co-ordinate about how things were going. My home was just the way we left it! I was so pleased!
I would recommend Michelle to anyone looking for someone to care for their fur babies! Five ☆☆☆☆☆ all the way!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Michelle! 😙
