Pet Sitting Adventures – November Edition 18

Pet Sitting Adventures – August 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 […]

Pet Sitting Adventures – October Edition 3

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.

Things I’ve learned Pet Sitting over the last five years 19

Things I’ve learned pet sitting over the last five years: That almost all cats love their chins scratched. That most dogs hate you going over their head to pet them. That your allergies can improve the more you’re around animals. Point and case: I’m no longer allergic to dogs and my cat allergy has gotten better slightly. It’s best to take photos of pets on burst mode, that way you’re to get at least one decent picture out of say 20. That most cats will only want to interact with you on their terms. That dogs can se fear and pick […]

Pet Sitting Adventures – August Edition 16

Pet Sitting Adventures – August Edition Hello my friends and welcome.   It’s been four weeks since I last checked in.  This weekend was BUSY, but let’s be real – when are the weekends chill and easygoing, with few visits?  Gone are those days, which is good for business, but damn, if only I could clone and teleport myself so that I could get to more pet visits, it would be much, much better.  But I digress, I get by and it’s all in good fun.  On Sunday morning, I had a potential new hire join me from 7 am to about 11 am, showing him […]


Pet Sitting Adventures – July Edition 16

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 […]

Pet Sitting Adventures – May Edition 14

Pet Sitting Adventures – May Edition Hello my friends and welcome.   This past weekend I worked and I was very much looking forward to it as it felt like AGES had passed since I last worked (only 4 weekends ago).  Also, I was feeling a bit down and stressed leading up to the weekend, so I was welcoming the thought of spending my weekend with dogs and cats that I could pet and love on to my heart was content.  It was a busy and fulsome weekend and it finally feels like we’re  So let’s get to it! So here’s the […]
