I have grown up around all types of animals including dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, rodents, and exotic birds. I have previously worked at a bird store for 3 years and have vast experience caring for various species of birds from finches to macaws from birth until adulthood. I understand the complexities of animal behavior and the challenges of keeping a happy and healthy exotic animal in the home. I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from New York University with a degree in Communicative Sciences & Disorders. I have also been a full-time foster parent/volunteer for several animal rescue groups for the past year.

I have a shy cat and a very social cockatiel. The bird is fully flighted and is used to have human company all day long. So even for a short 2 day trip I need a pet-sitter, otherwise the bird would go nuts.
So I contacted Ashley, primarily for her bird expertise. Fortunately, she was available even on very short notice.
We had a introductory meeting where she carefully listened to all the little needs and quirks the pets have.
After being two days away I came home and the pets seemed to be taken care of very well. With other pet-sitters before they displayed an enormous amount of relief to see me back. Back with Ashley's help they both seemed quite content and I could sense that they were very happy with Ashley pet-sitting them.
I also noted a lengthy note that Ashley wrote. In it, she detailed all about the two days. Apparently the bonding went very well and the pets totally took her on as pet-sitter. The bird whistled some tunes to her and even the super-shy cat bonded with her and treated her with purrs. I could not be happier.
I will certainly book Ashley every time from now on and can absolutely recommend her service!
