Kristen’s Bio

I am 32 years old and currently live in Elgin, IL. I am a huge animal lover! I am also a vegetarian because of my love for animals. I have had many pets throughout my life, and love all animals, any shapes and sizes. I am very lucky to not have any allergies. I currently have a cat, Frankie, who is quite the character. I just moved into my new place which has a lot of land, and I plan to fill it with animals!

I have over 15 years of petsitting experience, including overnight stays. I have taken care of dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, and guinea pigs! I also have experience administering medication. My sweet cat Simon passed a few years ago. He was with me for most of my life. He was 15 years old, was blind most of his life, and went into kidney failure in his last year. I administered medication and subcutaneous fluids through an iv daily. I miss him so very much.

In 2015 I volunteered and lived on a farm in Costa Rica for 2 months. It was also a monkey and wildlife rescue center. My profile photo is a picture of me feeding an abandoned baby monkey goat's milk through a baby bottle. I actually milked the goats myself, filtered it, warmed it, and fed it to the baby monkeys. I also took care of chickens, pigs, horses, bunnies, and more! It was an amazing experience.
 
At my previous residence we had a tenant living in our basement who had a dog that I helped take care of. Tres was a male husky mix who was also adopted from a shelter. He only has 3 legs, but it didn't seem to phase him one bit! He still hopped around just fine and was a really happy dog.
 
If I have some extra time in my week, I like to help out at the Starfish Animal Rescue shelter in Downers Grove. Starfish rescues animals from high kill shelters around surrounding states, and brings them back here to their shelter. I really appreciate what they do for animals, and I like to help out whenever I can.
