Pet Companion And House Sitter

I'm Laura, a pet lover -- so much so that I rescued a young tabby cat from under a car, took him in a cab to an animal shelter and visited him everyday. When his owner did not come forward, I helped persuade someone else to adopt him. I had my own cats for 25 consecutive years. My senior feline, adopted at 6 months, lived to be 21, and another cat lived to be 18. I took very conscientious care of them. I have a particular empathy for older animals. I've taken care of cats aged 12 and 13, as well as a 14-year-old diabetic cat who needed twice daily pills and insulin shots. I've helped give a dog shots as well. I do not yet know pet First Aid, but I am willing to learn. I've given cats baths and brushing, and taken them to the vet. While I am a dedicated follower of felines, I also take care of dogs. I spent thanksgiving with a Labrador, Christmas with a Maltese, New Year with two Pomeranians, and Valentine's Day with a Terrier. These past months, I have also cared for a Dalmatian and a Smooth Fox Hound. I regularly look after a highly excitable miniature Australian Shepherd. I've fed, walked, brushed and romped with dogs. I've also taken care of guinea pigs, small mammals and fish. I am an arts writer and my flexible schedule allows me to provide animals with plenty of attention and affection. I'm willing to travel all around the Bay Area, and beyond. I've returned to San Francisco where I lived and worked in the 90's. I'm now living with a friend whose building does not allow pets. Since I miss animal companionship, I'm pet sitting, and house sitting, and specialize in looking after pets in their own home. I regularly stay with a cat and dog in their house in San Carlos; I've spent extended time with pets in Belmont, Hayward, Sausalito and Marina Bay, and we all got along very well! I'm open to expanding my repertoire of pets I take care of, and I hope to be of help to you. Thank you for any consideration.
