Laura was awesome! I felt so much more relaxed on my vacation knowing she was watching my cats. I got updates everyday and pictures of them playing and eating. She was great and took out the trash and watered the plants as well. 100% recommend, and would book again if I’m ever in need. Thanks Laura!

Cat:
-No breed preferences

When possible, I prefer to do a meet and greet ahead of time, so that we can talk about any of your concerns/requests, and I can meet your animal.

For cat care, I love to play and hang out with the little fur-balls! My cat enjoys hunting toys, and I can keep your cat entertained in the same way! If there are any special needs or requests for your cats, I can work with you to ensure quality care for your feline friend.

For dog walking, I am interested in knowing how your dog walks on a leash, if he/she has any anxiety or dog reactivity etc. I do have experience with dogs who do not like other dogs, or who have some anxiety/emotional issues. I try to accommodate any personality or needs that your pup may have. Taking your dog to parks or trails, enjoying nature, playing with toys are all activities I love to do.
