Introduction: Hello! 😊, My name is Charliee. πŸ₯° Thank you for considering me for the care of your family "furbabies." 😻 🐈 πŸ‡ πŸ€ Feathers, fins and others too! 🦜 πŸ¦† πŸ“ 🐠 🐟 🐍 🐒 🦎 πŸ– πŸ¦” πŸ•. At this time, I'm only able to offer limited dog services. πŸ“† PLEASE, mention your travel dates when contacting me, so I can better serve you. About me: I offer a variety of pet care services. I specialize in cats, small animals, birds, also special needs issues, vet visits, overnight stays, if necessary even storm checks.. I offer airport drop off and pick up, depending on the timing and such. I'm happy to provide pretty much any service you and your furry family may need while you're away from home. I've taken pet(s) for veterinary visits, I can care for your fish, (I too have a fish tank) I water your plants, gather mail and packages, run personal errands if needed, set out and retrieve your trash containers... You'll receive an update with photos of each pet for every visit. I strive to take nice photos, maybe you'll wish to keep a few. I know a couple of my photos have been used as art. I'm always extremely respectful of your home and your privacy. Your home will always be kept clean and secure. I enjoy playing with, exercising, and grooming your pets. Of course, giving them plenty of pets, hugs n cuddles too! I know they can need and certainly appreciate my attention. After all, they are missing you! I feel it's less stressful and healthier for most pets to stay in their safe, familiar surroundings when owners, (pet parents) need to travel. I'm genuine, empathetic, always kind and flexible. I always respect your privacy and pride myself on my honesty, work ethic, dependability, communication skills, and patience. I have reliable transportation. πŸ˜‰. Just a bit of advice... 😺 Please make sure your pet sitter has someone as a back up. I've had to step into too many stressful situations where a sitter cannot fulfill their agreement. My 22 yr old daughter, Ashen, and her retired (UPS) Dad, Rick, are my back ups, if ever needed. I list having employees, that's them, my cat/pet magnets. Cats are drawn to her, but dogs love Rick. We have several cats and they all hang out with Ashen all day. I hope one day she will decide to take over for me. I'm married, my children are grown. We have several cats now and I've always had cats as well and a variety of other pets. I offer my services in exchange for a fair fee, which I try to keep low. I believe my fees are average. *Lately, gas has caused me to raise my fee slightly. If gas goes down, I'll reduce my fee accordingly. I'm always open to negotiation. I'm confident that I can understand and relate to any issue or concern you may have. If I don't understand, I will always ask. πŸ‘‰ Normally, we first connect via the app, they get paid, then we can call or text. Next, we schedule a time to meet, free of charge. I offer Zoom calls if needed. I want you to feel comfortable and confident in my abilities to properly care for your pet. My aim is for you to have no need to worry about your pets or your home while you're away. I've met a lot of wonderful pet owners. I'm lucky and grateful to now call many of them my"friends". πŸ₯° A good portion of my clients have had me return multiple times yearly over the years. I consider this a real compliment and honor. πŸ™ I never over book which offers you flexibility in your travel needs. Plus, why stress myself out? I pet sit because I enjoy it! ~~~~~~~~~ πŸ‘‹ πŸ‘‰ If you request availability, or a meet and greet... "All pet sitters on Thumbtack" pay $5.00+/- automatically, per lead, I don't pet sit for the money, I really enjoy it. I try to keep my fee low. It becomes unprofitable when I'm charged to communicate with someone who is not seriously interested in hiring me. I just really love and enjoy animals, I like to meet new people and to help out. I find this work quite rewarding. However, if you're not serious can you please be understanding about the fees we automatically pay when asking about our availability. πŸ™πŸ’œπŸ™. Thank you.

If I could, I would leave this review way more than five stars... Charliee is the best pet sitter we’ve ever had! Our kittens absolutely LOVED having her visit and play with them while we were away, and I can tell that they already miss her. I was completely at ease from the first day, and never had to worry about my pets being stressed or lonely while we were on vacation. She played with them for hours, fed them treats and gave them cuddles, and we can’t wait to have her sit for us the next time we are out of town. Can’t recommend her services enough!

Thank you so very much Hannah & Shawn for allowing me to care for you 2 sweet furbabies. They are very sweet and lots of fun! For young cats, they're so well behaved. Well, besides the Cherry Tomato fun! Lol. I swear one looked like a toe! Luna and Minnie are such fun and surprisingly cuddly. You and Shawn are so kind, generous and great pet parents. You'll have many years of happiness together! Thank you too for your most generous Christmas gift/tip. You really touched my heart. I want to also thank you for having me return. It's always fun when cats I've cared for remember me. Often, I have to sit right down or lay down to let them say Hi. 😻πŸ₯°πŸ˜» Pets just make life better! I appreciate you sharing yours with me.

Working with Charliee is my first experience with a pet sitter & I could not have been more pleased. Previously I've relied on friends or family members to check in on my pet while I'm away but since my cat Arnie is an older gentleman, and has been having some health issues, I really wanted to be sure he was in good hands while I was gone. Charliee immediately put me at ease and all the apprehension I had about leaving Arnie melted away. Charliee's professionalism, dedication, and kindness are top-notch and I will definitely look to Charliee again to care for my pet when I travel. Thank you Charliee!

Dear Anne, Thank you so very much for the touching feedback you've left for me. I'm grateful that you felt at ease right away. Arnie is such a lover, I knew it was going to be hard for you to be comfortable leaving him. I'm glad you felt at ease once we met πŸ₯° as well as found the pics and updates helpful. He'd pose for me when I'd say lets send Mom a pic! Very funny! Even as an "older gentleman" I can see him as a young cat, with his strong loving personality. I'm so glad he put on some more weight. Quite a difference in just the couple weeks since I'd seen him last. That made me so happy! You are both quite special. I look forward to visiting Arnie again when you next get to travel. Take care, both of you! May God bless you both with great health and happy times! πŸ’œ

Charliee is a very caring person and did a great job taking care of my senior cat. She had no problems giving her medication daily and sent helpful updates via text. I’m fortunate to have found her!

Jennifer, It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you so much for trusting me with the care of Cookie, and for your kind review. Cookie is such a beautiful sweetheart. I hope she'll stay in good health and not need the therapy you mentioned, and that the video helped you in that matter.

We chose Charliee because of all the great reviews she has on Thumbtack. We are happy to say we are another satisfied customer. Charliee was great with our male 2 cats, one of which had to take a pill each day while we were gone. Charliee was able to not only administer the medicine, which gave us great piece of mind, but when we got back the cats seemed completely relaxed like they had been on vacation too! Charliee provided daily communication and follow through. She was very professional, yet personable, and we would highly recommend to anyone looking for cat sitting services.

Dave & Courtney, Thank you so very much for your kind review. Your boys are such sweethearts and were fun to visit. I've posted a photo of Snarf letting me cover him in toys! 😸 I so appreciate your cooperation when I needed my back up (my daughter) to cover for me those 2 days when I was hospitalized. In addition, thank you for having me return to care for your furry family again. It's such a wonderful privilege when I'm asked to return. I often let my heart get attached, so it's always a privilege to return for further care and fun. 😻 πŸ’œ 😸

    Meet and Greet, receive keys and care instructions, care given, keys returned and payment as agreed, if not paid or partially paid prior to service.

    I've had a variety of pets all my life. I'm in my 50's with pets and kids. I have medical training, I'm a Nurse Assistant. I consider myself to be reasonably smart and have common sense.
