I am a conscientious pet parent and animal lover living in Toronto's West end, offering my services to folks who need cat visits, cat-sitting, dog care/occasional dog-walking, or general small animal care. I have two cats, Winnie and Aggie who I adopted and have cared for since they were kittens, for over 14 years.
Experience handling and caring for small animals: hamsters, rats and ferrets, and have also owned and cared for freshwater fish.
A visit to your dog, cat or other pet(s) will include feeding, time spent with them, a trip outside to use the facilities (if they are an indoor/outdoor animal), and cleaning/changing litterboxes or pee-pads. I am happy to brush them, pet them, and play. A visit will last 40-50 minutes.
For walks, I am more comfortable walking medium to small dogs who are leash-trained and are acquainted with potentially social situations in parks, on paths or sidewalks.
Please let me know about administering oral medication and other particulars as needed. I am comfortable committing to overnight stays for up to 3 nights, in order to ensure I am home often enough to care for my own pets. My main source of transportation is the TTC and occasionally Lyft/Uber. I look forward to working with folks who will be patient and descriptive with their preferred pet care. I thrive on details and communication as well as caring for and nurturing animals; please do not hesitate to keep lines of conversation open as well as feedback and instruction.
Looking forward to spending careful, quality time with your pets!
**Area of service: West of Bathurst, east of Runnymede, and south of St. Clair West. My rates will be going up $3.00 per service as of October 1st, 2022**
This is the second time Chelsea has looked after my cat Sophie. Chelsea is a very conscientious sitter. She very quickly got to know Sophie's particular personality and needs, and she sends detailed updates with each visit.
Chelsea is great! She has great communication and we very much appreciated her frequent, quality updates while we were away, with good details about how our cats were doing. Most importantly, she has a great rapport with our skittish rescues. On visit #2 she got our shyest girl to purr and make biscuits - quite the feat!
We will definitely be booking again.
