Pet Sitting Adventures – August Edition

Hello my friends and welcome. It has been eight weeks since I last checked in.  Last weekend was my weekend to work and it was pretty decent, it wasn’t crazy by any stretch.  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.  If you want to check out another pet post, check out another fun post, check out things I’ve learned over the last five years of pet sitting.   

So let’s get to it, shall we?  

Weekend Stats:

  • Number of booked visits: 26 visits in total, 4 on Friday night, 13 on Saturday and 9 on Sunday.
  • Animals: Dogs, lots of cats, two chinchillas.
  • Distance driven in weekend (Friday night at 6 pm to Sunday night at 10 pm): 209 kilometers
  • Weather:  On Saturday, it felt characteristically like fall and on Sunday, despite some wind, it felt like a spring day.  It was actually quite nice and sunny.

Leg issues Leg issues

Meanwhile, Saturday night my leg was feeling pretty bad and I was having numbness issues like you wouldn’t believe, so I pulled out the tens machine and worked my leg.


Oh, Baxter. LOL

Can you spot the kitty?



Isn’t Charlotte the cutest? This old gal just loves to snuggle or perch up on your shoulders, happily purring the day away.



Aren’t the tabby’s just beautiful?

    I have such a weakness for long haired kitties, there is just something about them that is absolutely gorgeous regardless of their colouring!
    I hope that your leg is feeling better soon!

  • I love the long haired beauts too! I’ve really come to like and enjoy cats since I began pet sitting. I never knew there were so many breeds.
    Thanks hun my leg is starting to get better, slowly but surely. The nerve pain is starting to recede back up the leg, which is good news. 🙂
