Pet Sitting Adventures – July Edition
Hello my friends and welcome. I worked this past weekend and I was very much looking forward to it because I had not worked since May – two whole months!! In June, originally I was going to swap weekends with another pet sitter because we were going camping, but in the end, that was not needed and someone covered my weekend without me switching weekends, so it worked out to my benefit. It was certainly nice to see my regulars and catch up with some of them, as well as meet some new faces, too. So let’s get to it, shall we?
So here’s the deal for any new readers here. Pet sitting is my part-time, fun “job”. I work one weekend a month, every four weeks (and sometimes more often, if it is needed and I am available) and have been doing so for the last five years. It was a job that I just happen to stumble upon I guess at the right time and I feel so blessed to be able to do what I do. I get to spend time with animals and anyone that knows me well will tell you that my heart is with four-legged creatures; I am often saying that I prefer animals over people, but that’s just me. There’s just something so special that I cannot put into words about how I feel when I’m around animals. What can I say? I am animal mad in every sense of the word. I physically cannot walk past a dog in the street without loving on it and I’ve been known to on many occasions to stop the car and get out to ask to pet your dog. Yes, I am THAT person. And, FUNNILY, despite being allergic to cats, I still cannot resist a sweet, fluffy purring love. It’s crazy, but it’s true and I love every second of it.
- Number of booked visits: 27 in total – 2 on Friday evening and 14 on Saturday and 11 on Sunday.
- Animals: Dogs, cats, chinchillas, fish, a snake (!!!)
- Distance driven in weekend (Friday night at 6 pm to Sunday night at 10 pm): 272 kilometers
- Weather: Drizzly, overcast and muggy humid.
Once again, it is a photo heavy post so if you’re not into that kind of thing or you’re worried about me hogging your bandwidth, you should click away in 5…..4…..3…. 2…… 1.
Saturday & Sunday
This guy here, Sebastian, a gorgeous Maine Coon, could be the poster child for diabetic cats. He doesn’t mind getting his insulin one bit.
Meanwhile, back at home, Charlie was home for the weekend and he was loving on his brother Baxter. Baxter was just eating up all the love and making up for lost time for sure. 🙂

Isn’t he gorgeous? This is George and he’s a very friendly boy.

I had to put water in the snake’s tank and let me tell you it was done as quick as possible.. I even tried to find a turkey baster to use. LOL

And last but not least, here are some of the pets that I took care of, live in action. As always, thanks stopping by and reading. 🙂
I hope you all are having a great week!
