About Natasha

Hi neighbours!

I just recently moved to the West End and feel very positive with how pet friendly this side of town is. My background comes from working in emergency vet medicine for the last 5 years and shelter medicine before that when I was in Toronto. I'm comfortable with the sassy ones, particularly with kitty cats. I have two cats myself, Collin and Winston who are the loves of my life and I secretly "co-own" all the dogs at the park across from me!

Services I currently can provide are single solo walks, cat visits, administrating medication/ sub q fluids, nail trims. I do not have transportation so within the West End is most realistic. I am comfortable, experienced and trained with the importance of routine, especially when it comes to dietary needs and medication being administrated on time I.E insulin for diabetes etc. I know what to look out for and act on an emergency basis and would never step outside my experience in doing so. I do believe strongly in fear free approaches and I have more than enough time to spend to make that bond with the pet to build that trust and companionship. My services fees are based on 1 hour visits.

Currently, I am working on academics which is a motivation for me to have a more flexible schedule. However, I have always had strong sensitivity when it comes to our companion animals and would like to extend my services as my schedule can be more flexible to do so!

Outside of my professional employement with animals I am a huge advocate for spay and neutering and did TNR once a month in Toronto and prior to the pandemic I volunteered with Charlies, which is held once a month for anyone in need of no cost vet care. I believe pets can play a vital part in one's own mental health and it is a cause I care greatly about.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any additional questions! Or to share pictures of your furry friend!

Natasha was great. She got along well with my cat, sent lots of adorable photos, and was super communicative =)

Another amazing cat sitting experience with Natasha. She watched our boys for two weeks which is the longest I’ve ever spent away from them, but I had absolutely no stress or worries on our trip at all even with the 9 hour time difference, the communication was above and beyond my expectations once again. I was especially worried about them being alone during the heat wave but Natasha used her judgement with the fan and AC unit and made sure the apartment was always comfortable for them, she’s simply the best! Thank you Natasha 😻
