Hello, I'm Larissa, your next cat sitter.
I have three years of experience working in a cat shelter caring for and medicating cats so they could get healthy for adoption. I cared for senior cats, kittens, healthy cats, sick cats, friendly ones and even the angriest cats. Everything I learned there I brought home to take care of my own cat, Lucy.
I also had the sad experience of caring for two of my cats in their last days. When my beloved Hana got cancer I was there, by her side, medicating her several times a day and making sure she was fed every four hours. When my gorgeous Neko got kidney disease, I was home early from work every day to get her IV fluids under her skin.
These losses taught me just how precious these little creatures are and how blessed we are for being able to enjoy their company.
Services I offer:
Bonding with your cat: A initial visit is made to get to know you and your cat(s) and their habits
Food and water: I make sure your cat(s) has plenty to eat and drink*
Litter box cleaning: I make sure your pet has a clean place for number 1 and 2*
Playtime: I will spend a good amount of the visit playing with your cat, as they need to be stimulated
Medication: I can give oral and injected medications to your cat, as indicated**
My visits last at least 30 minutes and I'm available 7 days a week, from 9 am to 8 pm.
I'm patient and kind and I know what your cat needs. I am great at bonding with friendly cats and respecting the boundaries of the not-so-sociable ones. I can visit to provide food, water, a clean litter box and lots of playtime for your cat, and I will treat your cats as the precious little being they are for you.
I'm located at Wellesley and Sherbourne.
* Food, water and littler needs to be provided by the pet's owner
** In extreme cases of very aggressive cats, medication can be impossible to provide. I will let you know, at the initial visit, if there are any concerns in that regard. Most cats can be easily medicated, but it's important to know that there are exceptions.
Larissa cat-sit for us and also my neighbour's cat for one week. I was extremely pleased with the care she gave both animals; the regular text updates and videos were very reassuring that our Charlie girl was in wonderful hands. I will definitely use her in the future and recommend her to others. Early communication, meet & greet, and setup were very straightforward.
Larissa was professional and extremely easy to communicate with. She came prepared for the meet-and-greet and took excellent care of Matty while I was away, making sure to communicate each of her visits with me. I will definitely book her again!
