I have done pet sitting in the past for a company when I lived in PA and my children were small. When someone went on vacation instead of putting their dog in. I was a sitter and I loved it and so did my children. I had a range of breeds from tiny Chihuahua to a Grey Hound to a Rhodesian Ridgeback. I occasionally had a cat. I have also been a mom for the Humane Society in the past and took in cats. Once, I took in a pregnant cat and kept her until the kittens were old enough for adoption. This was a great experience for our family. I was also a cat lover for a while at the Humane Society. I've had cats all my life and currently have two. I have never owned a dog, but have taken care of plenty. I do not want to take care of pit bull, rottweiler or really big dogs.
