Pet Sitting Adventures – November Edition
Hello my friends and welcome. What a light weekend last weekend was, with only fifteen visits. I’m not sure why that was, but I’m pretty sure it’s the calm before the storm, aka the holidays. 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: 15 visits in total, none on Friday night, 7 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday.
- Animals: Dogs and Cats only.
- Distance driven in weekend (Friday night at 6 pm to Sunday night at 10 pm): 271 kilometers. Although not too many visits, there was one house I️ had four visits at a bit farther away than usual.
- Weather: Chilly, damp, felt very much like a chilly fall/early winter day.
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 old fella’s name is Twister. Isn’t he just adorable how scruffy and unkempt he looks? He’s 17 I believe.
It snowed Thursday night/Friday morning and this is what it looked like on Saturday.
Meanwhile, back at home…. LOL
Can you spot the wild turkeys waaaaay off in the distance? As soon as they saw me, they started to bolt. LOL
This little guy was adorable. 🙂
This weekend was not without drama and a few cancellations, but I made it and it was overall a good and relatively easygoing weekend. I didn’t take nearly as many photos or videos as I normally do because my iPhone is on the fritz and is having battery issues. It’s going in for a service tomorrow morning so hopefully I’ll either have a new battery OR a new phone for my troubles (aka the battery is started to expand and isn’t charging anymore). Also, the latest iPhone updates are brutal, is anyone else plagued by their battery dropping super quick, as in it’ll die within an hour? Or are you having auto-correct issues? I know, I know, first world problems.
Well that’s it for now. I hope you enjoy the pet pictures as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
