My name is Jill and I’m the proud mom of 3 rescue cats- Annie (lady of the house), Zoe (beautiful but shy) and Sophie (aka plumpy- lover of all food and laps.) My husband and I live in Bloor West Village, in the west end of Toronto.
Cats have been in my life and pet of choice for almost 30 years. I am a lover of all animals, but there's just something so lovely, charming and mysterious about a cat. They can be goofy and playful or quiet and shy or loyal and territorial. I've really seen it all and enjoyed every minute of it. I don't feel like my life is complete without a few cats to take care of.
Over the past 7 years, I have had the pleasure of working with seniors at a retirement home in Etobicoke. I value the relationships that I have made while working in senior's care and really understand what it's like to help take care of a loved one. Recently, I have had the opportunity to focus primarily on my art career...So I'm home more often and my cats are in kitty heaven!
As a cat owner, I definitely know the drill when it comes to cat sitting! I know from experience that routine is very important. Providing the same loving support and companionship your pet is used to is key. While I'm in your home, I'll take care of feeding, changing water, cleaning litter, and spending quality time with them as well as sending lots of pictures! If there are any light household chores that need to be taken care of while you're away, I'm your girl! Updates are essential because they put our minds at ease...so you'll receive my updates on the regular...texts, photos, emails, a call...whatever you choose is just purrfect for me! I would love to know a little more about your cat(s) before I take care of them. In order to give them the best care and to know exactly what you need, let's schedule a time to meet in person.
I have had extensive experience in administering medication. Please let me know if this is something that I can help you with. Some of my areas of expertise include: diabetes-monitoring blood levels and insulin injections, eye drops, and administering pills in all shapes and sizes. I have had hands on experience with the youngest of the bunch (1 month old) to the oldest and frailest of the bunch (20+ years old.) I have bathed, groomed and trimmed the nails of some very appreciative kitties...and some not so appreciative...I have also had experience with cats who have battled incontinence and other litter box related issues. As well as stepped in and cleaned up the worst of the worst.
That being said, I have gone the distance for all the felines in my life and I would be absolutely honoured for the opportunity to help you when you need it the most! Reach out! My schedule is very flexible. I can be available on a day to day basis or for longer periods of time (vacation) as required. My home visits are typically a half hour - 45 minutes each visit, but if you feel that you'd like to schedule more time, I'll never say no! I also provide overnight visits as well. I prefer to pet sit in your home because I really do believe your kitty(s) will feel more comfortable in their own environment.
Tell me what you need and we'll work together to achieve the best possible results for you and your furry family! I look forward to hearing from you!
Jill was a fantastic sitter for my cat while I was on vacation! It was the first time we worked with her, and I couldn't be happier. My cat warmed up to her quickly and really enjoyed her company - she gave him tons of attention and love. Her updates and photos gave me all the peace of mind I needed!
I can't say enough good things about Jill! She looked after my ill kitty so well that by the time I came home , he had more energy and seemed happier than I've seen him in a long time. Jill skillfully and gently administered medication to a cat who usually puts up quite a fight - she has that magic touch. Her twice daily updates and pics made it so that I could enjoy my vacation without any worry whatsoever. On top of it all, she is a sincerely kind and warm person and I recommend her without any hesitation at all.
