Professional Pet Sitting In Your Home

I was so glad to meet Caroline Drake who owns Critter Cronies, Inc.   She is a qualified pet tech, and pet first aid instructor. Caroline is trained in pet first aid and CPR and is qualified to teach Pet Tech Inc. which mission statement is improving the quality of pets' lives, one pet owner at a time.  Caroline also mails out her newsletter which is called Your Treasured Friends which she keeps us updated on her life and her own fur children. I must say her newsletter is very entertaining for she is a good writer.  I feel more relaxed when I travel knowing that Caroline is taking care of my fur child, for I know the love and passion she has for our pets. After meeting Caroline, she will become part of your family.  She not only watches after our pets but also your home, bringing in the mail, newspaper collection and alternating lights, feeding outside ducks, filling bird feeders, etc and walking your dog as many times as needed each day. She will give your pet a mid-day break, look in on a new puppy to be sure they are not getting into things they shouldn't be, If they had surgery and you are wondering how they are doing, or have a senior dog who would appreciate an extra potty break, or he is crated and would enjoy an exercise period.  I love the fact there is minimal disruption to feeding, medication and exercise schedules, no inconvenience to you having to transport your pet,   All this is provided at a very reasonable rate.  As you can see, I LOVE MY PET SITTER and so will your pets!

Cindy - LOL We were having dinner outside by the pool at my girlfriends home when the picture was taken.  Gina loves food but wine is not on her list of favorite drinks.

A drunken Lab would be a sight to behold.  I seem to be a fill in pet sitter for some of my friends and it makes up for the fact that I can't have my own right now.

Hi Sharon- Good to see you back and posting some really cute critter pictures.  Are these the one's you're looking after this weekend?....They all look so happy :-)  The Wetlands Festival was really nice, exceptionally well organized and wonderful exhibits.  I did NOT get great pics, but I did get great instruction on our photo walk.

Sharon, those are some very cute happy clients. :)
I miss my cat.  She left me this year, after 20 years.... and I also loved her pet sitter. :)

Sylvie - I know exactly how you feel - I also miss my cat - she had cancer and passed on Dec. 17th.   All my friends think I should adopt another pet now, but it is too soon for me.

Sharon, mine passed away on September 2nd, and all my friends told me the same thing, but I just can't do it.  At least, not yet.  I still expect her to come running up the stairs every morning, to wake me up; or run into the kitchen every time I open a can of anything ... I miss her....
Maybe one day soon ... in the meantime, I have her photos and great memories. :)
It will hurt less, Sharon... give yourself a little more time.

Sharon, great clients. I've always thought doing Pet Sitting on the side would be such a nice job to perform. If I could find the time.... It looks like so much fun, is worthwhile, and definitely necessary. I hope you are doing well these days my friend. I am one of the lucky ones here in the Rain. I got to meet Sharon.

Hi Sharon: Nice pictures - I believe in Pet sitters - our pets get stressed when we have to leave for extended periods of time and per sitters help ease that anxiety!
