About Jen

Hello! My name is Jen. I work full time as a web developer and being around animals gives me so much joy. I live in Yorkville and work near the Distillery district so I can serve Riverdale and Leslieville too.

Cats, dogs, pigs, raccoons... I love all animals! I'm a cat-adopter of three years--despite wanting to have a cat all along, I travelled a lot in my early twenties and wanted to ensure I was settled and financially capable to give them the best life. Adopting a cat was lifechanging, and I recall the first time I left them with a friend to cat sit I worried for hours like a parent leaving their kid at a sleepover.

Before I adopted my cat, I lived with many roommates who had cats and dogs, and cat sat for neighbors and friends since my teens. I have lived with nervous, older cats and dogs, and also lived with cats that have litterbox issues. To me animals are companions and I'm not as much of an owner than a "human" to them. Every animal has their own personality and can feel our energy and emotions, and I hope to provide them with company and comfort!

Schedule

I am most available for house visits between the hours of 7-9am, lunch hour and 6pm-10pm on weekdays and there's more flexibility on the weekend.

Cat sitting

Each of my cat sitting house visits last around 30 minutes and includes:

Water changing (who likes stale water? not I!)

Litter scooping and changing

Food replenishment

If they are shy, I will sit around to get them comfortable with me

Plentiful pets, snuggles and hugs

Play time, if they feel like it. We can have fun with a cardboard box, a paper bag, or a bouncy ball. I have a couple cat wands that I will let them play with under supervision!

I have character references from previous cat sitting, dog walking, and pet-owning roommates if you are curious!

Other fun facts:

I'm background-checked by Rover.

I do this because I need more physical activity and visiting a furry friend is the best motivation. I've increased my daily stepcount by walking to and from house visits.

I "trained" my cat to sit and jump with a clicker. He will also go into his carrier. Instead of jumping in their air however, they stand on their hind legs.

My friends and I used research and user testing methods to create a sound sampler app for cats called tiddl, which is on the App Store now. Any questions, just ask!
