About Pets 'n Pajamas Overnight Sitting

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

I've been a pet owner all my life. I adore animals and try to see things from their perspective to keep them as happy as possible. I've worked as a vet tech, and I've also done home care for chronic and critically ill cats, so I'm comfortable with medical procedures like pilling, subcutaneous fluids, shots, blood sugar checks, and assist/syringe feeding. In addition to dogs and cats, I also have experience with snakes, lizards, birds, rabbits and tarantulas.

I focus on overnight stays, where I'm with your pet in your home for at least 15 hours a day or more, depending on your needs. This includes meals, walks, play sessions, cuddles, sleep over, and any other activities that are part of your pet's routine. My rates for overnight stays start at $60 a night, depending on location, number of pets, and a few other factors (see pricing details below). I have a very flexible part-time job that allows me the freedom to work around most scheduling needs, and there are many days that I can spend the entire 24 hours at home with your pet.

Special needs pets are my favorites. If you have a dog or cat who is shy, skittish, on a special diet, or in need of very particular care by someone who can follow detailed instructions, this is where I excel.

If you'd like me to sit for you, I'll come by to meet your pets before you leave and take plenty of time to discuss the details of their care. I'll want to know their normal habits and behaviors, to help recognize if anything is out of the ordinary when you're gone. In addition to attending to your pet's needs and providing lots of closeness and attention, I'll water the plants, take out the garbage, and bring in the newspaper and mail.

My goal is for you to relax and enjoy your trip, and for your pet to feel comfortable and loved while you are gone. I can provide multiple references to confirm that I'm a conscientious, reliable, and caring pet sitter. So far, all of my first-time customers have become regular clients.

I carry full liability insurance.

  • 5/5 stars Pet Sitting Verified Review

    Lynn did a great job with our two doggies. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future! Our dogs were excited to see us when we got home but not to the point that they drove us crazy:) Haha More like, oh you guys are back, we didn't realize you were gone, we had a fun week! One of my dogs was very sad and whimpered when Lynn left.

  • 5/5 stars

    I just hired Lynn to pet/house sit for 7 days and nights while I was travelling internationally and unavailable. I have 8 kitties, several with special needs. Lynn is a mature woman, experienced with pets, but most importantly her care and compassion for the animals cannot be surpassed.
    My house was spotless as if she wasn't there. I asked her to eat food I left, but she brings her own and tries not even to leave a footstep! If she'll come to help me again, I will use her again and again. I found her through an internet search, and I thank my lucky stars that I did. Happy to speak with you if you would like a conversation and I have given Lynn permission to give my name out. I checked her out thoroughly with her landlord of 5 yrs, who also gave a glowing report.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I started pet sitting when I lost all three of my pets to old age and illness in the span of a year. It was too soon to bring a new family member home, but my desire to love and care for animals hadn't lessened. Since I was also looking for an enjoyable and meaningful part time job, things fell into place for starting a pet sitting business. I feel very fortunate to do what I do. There is nothing better than knowing that the priorities of your heart and the priorities of your work are the same.
