About Vicky

Hi there,

I'm a Master student in University of Toronto living in downtown, and I would love to take good care of your pets in my spare time.

I have two-years of experience taking care of dogs and more than five-years of experience with cats. I also had experience taking care of rabbits, camelion and hamsters, so all types of pets are welcome for home boarding or home visits.

For home boarding dog service, since I live fairly close to Queen's Park, I can walk your dog once or twice a day in Queen's Park and play with them (30-60min/day). And for cats, they will get lots of attention depending on how they like to be treated. I do make sure to play or cuddle with them everyday, an hour minimum.

Time schedule wise, from Monday to Thursday I will not be home all day since I have class (mainly in the afternoon), but the advatage of living so close to campus is that, it is easy for me to go back home after class to check on your pets and keep them company.

In terms of home visits, I can stay for 30-45min once or twice a day by request. I can visit in the morning or afternoon, time is negotiable.

My cat is a chubby boy who is 8 years old and I've had him for 6 years. Because all the trip and moving to Toronto this summer, we decided to let him stay with my parents, so your pets will have the entire condo to themselves. It is a one bedroom condo and I don't have roommates, so it is quiet and peaceful. They can basically sleep anywhere they want in the apartment. Most importantly, I will treat your pet like my own and make sure they have a good time while you are away. On top of that, I will also send you pictures of them and keep you updated.

I enjoy taking care of animals and petsitting for other people. The major reason is that I know some pets can develop anxiety and psychological problems if they are left alone for a long period of time. A few years ago when I first adopted my cat and lacked experience, I left him in the house for 3 days since I could not take him with me. When I came back, he was anxious and clingy for a long time, which I really regret. Had I known this website back then I would not have left him alone.

Feel free to contact me if you are looking for a caring and loving petsitter in Toronto!
