Experienced Part Time Pet Sitter And House Sitter
I am an illustrator and self proclaimed animal lover with experience caring for everything from house pets to wild animals. In the last 10 years, I've volunteered at the Wildlife In Need Center in Oconomowoc, an organic farm in Viroqua, and regularly pet and house sit for families in the Madison and Oconomowoc areas. Animals quickly warm up to me, even reclusive purebred cats or dogs with histories of abuse. I believe animals are attuned to our intentions so I make a great effort to speak kind and loving words to them. More often than not, that has calmed down the most frightened animal. Frequently, I house sit while pet sitting. I'll happily do light cleaning, bring in the mail, take out the garbage, and water plants. Pretty much anything you ask for. I work part-time in downtown Madison so my schedule is a bit irregular during the day. But even on the days I do work, I'll spend at least one hour every morning and every night with the pets (if I'm not staying overnight).
