À propos de Alice

I am COVID vaccinated & fully up to date with all boosters & flu shots.

I do cats, plants, all exotics, fish, and low maintenance birds :) (Sorry, no doggoes!) **All visits are between 1pm-10pm at this time**

Let me start by saying I already love your cat!!!! :D I am a huge animal & plant lover, and have had pets & plants all my life. Cats in particular have always held a very special place in my heart, and I am definitely a "crazy cat lady" lol. I have shared most of my life with cats, have fostered and rescued strays, and am a little obsessed with understanding cat behaviour and nutrition. As a cat sitter, I bring all my amazing knowledge (and toys/brushes!) to your home to spoil your fur babies while you enjoy your trip worry-free :) My focus is to provide fun, interactive, and stress-reducing visits for you fur or scale family, with lots of updates, pics, and vids for you! :)

I am an established, reliable, and dedicated sitter, on Pawshake now for approximately 4 years of stellar service, (reflected in my numerous reviews that you can check out any time), but I have been the "go-to" pet sitter for my family, friends, and acquaintances for MANY years.

I do 1-hour visits (unlike “drop-in” services that are only about 15-30 minutes). This gives me time to make sure everything is changed/cleaned, topped up, AND that your cat gets loooooots of play time and positive interaction. This is so important for their mental and physical health because it helps them feel less stressed and still cared for and entertained while everyone is away! You will find that my pet sitting service always goes above and beyond, and your pets and home will always be very well taken care of.

I currently live with 3 adult cats (all rescues), 4 geckos, a fully planted fish tank, various invertebrate feeder colonies for my tribe, and an ever-evolving indoor jungle of tropical, succulent, and fruit-bearing plants. (I also propagate and sell plants and have a dedicated plant room!). Because all of my cats have some degree of complex medical and emotional needs, I've acquired more knowledge and resources than your average person on feline nutrition, digestion, anxiety, body language, problem behaviours, allergies, and managing feline diabetes. In my efforts to ensure MY fuzz-butts get the best care possible, and live their best lives, I now have specialized knowledge for cat-sitting cats who benefit from any kind of extra attention: whether it’s because they are very social/human-bonded and love attention, or if they are anxious/fearful and need those extra care tactics to reduce their stress. And while I LOOOOVE cuddly playful cats, I do specialize in anxious, fearful, and complex-needs felines :) I'm used to different diet requirements for multiple cats in one household, giving various oral and sub-dermal medication to cats (including insulin), and am comfortable taking blood sugar readings to non-spicy kitties. If your fur baby is “a bit extra,” or needs medication during cat-sits, or you have multiple cats eating different foods: I've got you!

WHAT YOU GET:

--visits are approximately 60 minutes (unless otherwise arranged)

--interactive play time (about 30 minutes) I bring my own cat toys! :)

--brushing (if appropriate)

--as many cuddles/pets as allowed by cat :)

--close monitoring for any physical/behavioural changes or potential issues

--food & water bowls washed & refilled fresh each feeding or day

--medication administration if needed

--litter scooping each visit & garbage removal

--sweep around litter & food areas (as needed)

--one free Meet & Greet (approx 1hr) to make sure we’re a good fit, get all your cat care info, and pick up your keys for cat sit

PLEASE NOTE:

1. All cat claws must be trimmed as short as possible (or capped) prior to cat sits for the safety of your cat (and me) during playtime. This is non-negotiable to prevent avoidable injuries.

2. All pet interactions will be positive and Fear-Free focused! I do not employ any kinds of punishment!

RATES

All prices include: 1 free Meet & Greet (to get all pet care info, make sure we're a good fit, and grab any keys needed before first cat sit), all travel time, gas*, plant watering, fish feeding, garbage removal, home cleaning maintenance, and mail pickups.

*All visits 25+min drive will have a +$2/visit added for extra gas/time (I live Northeast in Beverly Heights).

    PLEASE NOTE: because the Pawshake app unfortunately doesn’t have the option to set multiple services and fees, there may be small final fee adjustments that will be discussed during the "Booking Inquiry" phase for bookings running over 5 consecutive days, or for bookings farther than 25min away, as listed above :). I apologize for the inconvenience and hope Pawshake will offer these options soon.

    LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS: An in-person Meet & Greet is required before commencing my services for the first time for you :) because of this, there will be a $20 last minute booking fee if booking less than 48hrs in advance.

    Cancellation Policies (made by Pawshake):

    Moderate: 100% refund 7+ days notice, 50% refund <7 days notice, no refund once first booking day starts.

    MORE ABOUT ME:

    I am 40 and am a social introvert :) I like plants, sci fi, artsy/crafty things, moody maximalism, and, of course, CATS! Lol

    My 3 cats, Jasper, Rex, and Bear, range between 6 - 12 years old. My oldest boy Jasper is fairly high needs (severe food allergies, environmental allergies, PICA, picky eater, diabetes, and high anxiety). He's also my soul mate and we are each other's "security blankets" lol. Rex is a Snowshoe Siamese, he’s a very good boi, but sheds like a husky XD. Bear is my youngest-a very happy (but not too bright) rescue from a hoarding situation. He's sadly inbred AF. He was the only kitten to survive from his litter and has a grade 3 heart murmur and some pretty severe constipation/digestion issues. He wasn't supposed to live past 2, but he just turned 6 in November! :D

    My geckos are female Leos, and live communally in a very large fully planted bioactive terrarium. My fully planted freshwater aquarium usually sports female bettas, shrimp, snails, and a very orange bristle nose pleco, but I’m currently in transition with fish tank sizes, so no bettas right now.

    In the past I’ve also owned corn snakes, hamsters, more geckos, aquatic frogs, a rabbit, and-of course-more cats! Lol Occasionally throughout my life I've done rescue/rehab for various animals (cats, reptiles, a few amphibians, rodents, birds, and even a spider!), and I’ve fostered cats and kittens for approximately 2.5 years.

    I have a lot of crafty and artsy hobbies, I love art and making new things, and I love to meet new animals!! :)

    If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask! I look forward to meeting you and your pet family! :)

    Alice was an excellent cat sitter for my kitties! She sent several pictures and videos and gave a thorough update each day I was gone. I would be happy to hire her again in the future and would know my cats were in good hands :)

    Alice is quite simply amazing. She went above and beyond everyday while caring for our kitten. Her expertise and knowledge is outstanding. She is professional and courteous. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her. She deserves 10 stars out of 5.
