Palina was wonderful with our two cats. She came to meet them before our vacation and they were very friendly and purring with her. Normally, they hide when new people are around! She took very good care of them while we were away and sent pictures of her visits. I would highly recommend her. She has great energy with animals!

Details: Cat • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Providing companionship • Changing litter or bedding • Short visit (30 minutes) • A few times a week • The pet sitter travels to me

I was very happy with Palina. She is a lovely person and was very good with my dogs. I would definitely hire her again to look after my dogs whether it be daily walks or overnight stay.

Wiggly Tail took care of my cat Jewels all last year when I lived in San Diego. My cat Jewels has kidney disease and I felt so comfortable leaving her in the care of Paulina. She took excellent care of her; she kept me informed of how she was doing on a regular basis; did anything extra I asked her to do for Jewels with no hesitation. I wish I could have taken Wiggly Tail with me when I moved to FL. I highly recommend this pet care giver.

    My price very depending on clients needs and services. I do day care, night care, walks, drop-in drop-off visits.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we set up time and day to meed and greet. I always want to see pets before stay or walk. I would like to know more about pets personality, character, habits, toys,favourite places to go, any issues, health condition, feeding schedule. The more information you give me - is better. I can provide references from previous clients.
