About Chelsea

I am a conscientious pet parent and animal lover living in Toronto's West end, hoping to offer 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 11 years. My home life has always included pets of all kinds, from small to extra large dogs, from introverted cats to energetic parrotlets! I have experience handling and caring for small animals like hamsters, rats and ferrets, and have also owned and cared for freshwater fish.

A visit from me 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 approximately 30 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 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. Typically I am available mid-day between 2pm and 6pm for visits, Monday to Friday, and any time on Saturday and Sunday.

My full-time career is providing Sign Language interpretation in Toronto universities and colleges, so I do find myself in a variety of neighbourhoods throughout the day, and am typically completely available on weekends. My main source of transportation is the TTC and occasionally Lyft/Uber. I am new to Pawshake and am hoping to work with folks who will also 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.

Preferred area of service is west of Sherbourne, east of Runnymede, and south of Eglinton.

Looking forward to spending careful, quality time with your pets!

Straight 5 stars! Chelsea is the best cat sitter I have ever had!

She is so friendly, thoughtful and detail-minded. She had taken real good care of my monster cats.

You know cats sometime complain by playing naughty when we are away from home. And Chelsea just cleaned up all the weird shits :)

highly RECOMMENDED!

And thanks so much for your help:)
