Jim's got stellar cat sitting skills! My cats love him, and I love that there's fresh water and food when I come home. He definitely takes the best care of them -- no other sitter can compare! He's also got a witty personality, and is super knowledgable about both cats and dogs. I'm currently working on a meal plan for one of my larger kitties, per Jim's exPURRt advice. :)

Experienced Sitter 4 Furry Families

I COVER ALL of ABQ and have been a Dog & Cat sitter and owner for well over three decades. This helped to pay for my college education, by taking care of wonderful animals ever since my early college days. In addition, I have volunteered in shelters and no-kill sanctuaries since the early-1980s, in whatever city and state my career took me. This includes taking care of literally tens of thousands of dogs & cats ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

Positive reinforcement and attention, in addition to lots of love and playtime, makes for a great bond with any animal. I provide that and am completely breed agnostic. All dogs have the opportunity to be great and, with the right people and environment around them, most certainly will be.
