About Lynn

HI there I have extensive experience with geriatric and special needs cats and dogs. I just lost my 20 year old cat. Previous to Cimi, I had two other cats and a dog.

Cimi was on thyroid medication and needed special littler box care so there were no "landmines" at any time. I also became educated on pet-stain sprays, steamers and cleaning techniques to ensure scents and stains were removed well.

In Cimi's later years, I would take him out for little strolls around my property as he grew up an outdoor cat but could not go out on his own any longer. At times when Cimi was not well, I would nurture him by feeding him with a syringe - watering down his canned food and giving him bone broth for essential nutrients additional protein.

I also had a toy poodle who lived quite a long life and at the end stages, Dale suffered a stroke and needed extra care and medication until he passed.

I am of course, also very comfortable with healthy and able cats and dogs. I have to admit I have a preference for smaller dogs, so I may decline my services to larger dogs.

My services include:

Dog walks and cat/dog visits in the later mornings, afternoons and evenings.

Visits and walks are 30 mins.

Visits can include the following: walking (including cats), feeding, topping up kibble, teeth brushing, water changes, administering meds, litter pick up, grooming and cleaning, playing, cuddling and any other specific instructions you may have.

Lynn was wonderful with my big ol' boy while I was away—easy to communicate with, proactive with pet updates and followed my instructions to the letter. Highly, highly recommended!!

Lynn was great with our cat!! I would recommend her 100%, she seemed very gentle and caring with Pepito and our cat seemed to really like her. She sent me pictures of him with some updates as soon as she visited him. He had the best time in our absence :)
