Introduction: I've always loved animals. I've had a cat in my life since I was 3. My best friend calls me The Cat Whisperer. My husband (& cat) won't let me get more cats, so I decided to start pet sitting after helping my friend with some of her sittings & dog walking when she was injured. I love spoiling your fur babies while you are out of town. I'm also able to give medications. I have also owned a dog, birds, chickens, fish, rabbits, turtles & hamsters. I even have some experience with horses. I've bird sat small & large birds as well. My visits include feeding, changing the water, cleaning out litter or picking up poo on walks, playing, talking, chin scratches (lots of them!) & petting, cuddling & kisses. I can also administer meds, if needed. If you have house plants, I can water them & also collect your mail & papers, if needed. I'll send you text messages to let you know how your fur baby is doing along with a few pictures.

Pet Sitting

Teresa is very conscientious and sent updates and photos. My fur babies were experiencing separation anxiety since it has been so long since I was away. She calmed them and took excellent care of them. I would use her again for any long trips I was planning.

Teresa is truly a “cat whisperer”! She took care of our fur babies while we were on vacation and treated them with care. I received several pictures a day with a daily update. We saw one of our cats gravitate to her immediately when she interviewed, and decided that we needn’t look any further. We have 5 fur babies, and she made sure that each one got the proper needs and attention. It’s also really important to have a feeling of trust with your sitter, and there are no worries with Teresa! Don’t hesitate hiring her!

Teresa was wonderful, I appreciate all the pictures I received of my babies playing. She spent time with them and was as concerned as we are about our senior girl. Highly recommend her!

Pet Sitting

Teresa looked after our cat Darla and did a great job. She also kept an eye on the house and gave us updates. She is a very dedicated person who carries out her work with a lot of passion and commitment. Darla absolutely loved her and Teresa filled in the gap of us missing from the home while we were gone. I can confidently recommend her as an excellent caretaker and communicator who goes beyond the basic duties of her job. For example when Teresa realized that our next door neighbors were going to throw a party she spent extra time with Darla to make sure she wasn’t too distressed from the noise and activities next door. She is a very warm and pleasant person. I am grateful for the wonderful job she has done taking care of our furry family member in our absence.

I cannot say enough good things about Teresa. She was a godsend when I had to travel last minute for a funeral. My cat is extremely needy. He gets stressed out when I leave for two hours. Normally I'd only trust my family to watch him, but they were travelling with me. Teresa made me feel comfortable traveling because I could instantly see that she has a special touch with cats. My cat gravitated to her right away. She asked all of the right questions and took good care of him, from playing with him, to cleaning litter and feeding him. She is true cat lover and you can feel it. I highly recommend you hire Teresa to treat your kitty!!!!
