Lyndee's Pet Sitters
About this pro
She answered my request even though it was short notice. Some of the cats came out to greet her. That's a good thing. Everything was in order when we arrived home. Cats were happy, not stressed.Dec 30, 2017Verified
Lyndee was accommodating, flexible, and was able to substitute for myself and my girlfriend with little instruction in a very last minute situation. We came back to happy dogs!Nov 2, 2017VerifiedLynda C.'s reply
Thank you very much, Jeff. I always try to become the surrogate "mom and dad" to my client's pet(s) while they are away. I always received a big smile from Bleda when I came, which made it extra special for me. Lyndee
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had a connection with animals having been raised on a farm. But I needed to get out of Corporate America in the 1990's due to all the layoffs, downsizing and mergers that were just begining to take place. I happened to see an ad in the Sunday newspaper that was looking for a pet sitter in the east valley. I decided that I had nothing to lose by trying to start my own business, and here I am 11+ years later. This is my only "job". I look forward to every new day working and spending time with your pets, who are your families.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I took care of a coatimundi, which is part badger, part raccoon with a very long tail. They use their paws like hands. Her name was Wednesday, and she would come and visit me by sitting on the couch next to me. She would climb in my lap, sniff me, and then rub my scent on her tail. I could never have any of my possessions out where she could see them, because then she would take them and then they would be HERS! Good luck getting them back then. Keys especially.
