Introduction: I come to your home and care for your furry family member. I treat and care for, your kitty or pup, as if they were my own. I have 15 years professional experience, and 25 years of experience with a local feline rescue organization, from which I have learned a wealth of information, skill, and behavioral experience . I am skilled with giving medicine, fluids, etc. I love the shy, scared cats and dogs as well as the friendly ones. I have excellent references, and my clients love me and my personal attention to their fur babies! My motto is "when you care like I do". Because I really do. Animals are my passion, and the most important thing to me, is keeping them safe, well, and happy. I also take great care of your home: Bringing mail and papers in, watering plants, lights off and on, and I'm very security conscious. It is a top priority for me. I enjoy everything, with your 4 legged family members. I love spending time with them and letting them know they are not alone. I love making their lives a little easier and less lonely when their parents are away and love winning their hearts, like they always win mine. I spend as much time as needed to make them feel comfortable and safe, with lots of petting, combing, playing, catnip, chasing balls, whatever their favorite is. I also think it's important to leave your fur family member in your own home, while you're away, instead of boarding them at a kennel or vet's office, which can be very stressful for them, along with a risk of contracting viruses.

Pet Sitting

Patte was great. She was in communication while we were away, even sending pictures of our fur baby. She’s very detailed and thorough. I would definitely recommend her to watch your pets.

I wanted to pick all 5 reasons to hire Patty but the site only allowed for 3. I will definitely be hiring Patty again. I feel I can really depend on her. She went above and beyond by staying with our cat longer than expected.

Patte did a great job. I have a problem dog she managed to win over. I’m happy to have someone I can trust next time we go on a vacation.

Cat Sitting

Patte is an excellent sitter. she sent me photos and updates on my 2 cats while we were away. I've used her several times since I first hired her. She loves cats! She was very attentive and asked questions about their care.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Everyone's family and their pets are different, and need different attention. I'll charge a little more for medications, fluids, etc. Or if I need to travel farther. But my pricing is very fair and reasonable. ☺

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

    We talk on the phone/text or email first, to get a sense of what they need, their pets' personality and needs, And to answer any questions they may have about my qualifications and experience. Every pet is special and has special needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    25+ years with a local rescue organization, where I learned to really get to know cats and all of their nuances, science and medical background which makes it easier for medications and managing illness, 20+ years experience working with feral and shy scared kitties.And of course I've been privileged to have many dogs and cats to care for of my own in the past 40 years. The key is to treat all dogs and cats as individuals that have individual needs!
