Laura’s Bio

I have always had a love of animals and grew up surrounded by them. As a child/teenager, I had dogs, cats, fish, and even a pony. My petsitting career began as a teenager when I would care for our neighbor's cat and tropical fish while they were away on vacation. In my 20's, I worked at a veterinary hospital and would pet/housesit on occassion for some of the clients. In 1987, I began a career with the US Postal Service, but continued my petsitting on the side. I was promoted to Postmaster of a small town and on my lunch hour began regularly walking and exercising some of my working customer's dogs. Word spread and I would often provide pet care and sitting services to others in town and the surrounding areas. I retired from the Post Office with 20 years of service and now work part-time on a special needs schoolbus. With my flexible schedule and summers off, I am still able to do my petsitting and dogwalking on a regular basis. My family includes a husband, 2 adult sons, 3 labrador retrievers, 2 cats, 4 parrots, a small flock of chickens, and an aquatic pond complete with fish, frogs, and turtles. I also have raised dairy goats in the past. I am honest, dependable, patient, and detail oriented. I have experience in feeding, administering medications, walking, exercising, swimming, grooming, waste removal, and the general overall care of animals. I will keep your pets safe, shower them with love and attention, and treat them as if they were my own.

Laura was very reliable, dependable and detail oriented in taking care of my cat (drop-in visits). She even made an emergency visit on very short notice. After each visit, Laura left a written log and she also emailed me a daily update and a daily pic of my cat letting me know that my cat was okay and describing the cat's behaviors / activities and the tasks performed for my cat and home (ex. feeding, litter scooping, etc.). She also checked on my home and collected the mail and newspapers while I was away. I highly recommend Laura for future pet sitting jobs.

Thank you Kathleen for taking your time to write me a review. It was a pleasure caring for Griffin while you were away. He's a great cat and I enjoyed spending time with him. I am glad that you were pleased with my services. Thank you again for choosing me for your petcare needs. Sincerely, Laura

Excellent petsitter

I highly recommend Laura for taking care of your pets. We went out of town for two weeks and she made me feel very comfortable about leaving my two spoiled Labs. They had never been left alone overnight before. Laura came to the house three times a day. She fed my fish and dogs. She let them outside, played with them, cleaned up after them, and loved on them. She also brought in mail and watered plants. Laura sent me detailed texts along with pictures each day. I'm happy to have found a trustworthy and sweet person to help me out and I will be using her again. She's one in a million!

Thank you Laura for taking your time to write me a review. It was a pleasure caring for Maya and Gracie while you were away. They are such sweet and loving dogs and I looked forward to my visits with them each day. I'm glad you were pleased with the care that they received from me. Thank you again for choosing me as your petsitter.

Sincerely,

transport to vet.

Laura,
Thank you for responding to my needs ad so quickly. You single handily turned a very stressful event into not a worry. You allowed me to get back to my job of taking care of people because you took care of my cat. SPIRIT had a blocked bladder, which can kill them very quickly and he was uncomfortable so I was beside myself as to how I was going to get him medical care because I could not be absent from work. You arrived very quickly and I felt that you were reliable and trustworthy and that gave me peace of mind when handing over my cat to you. I appreciate you getting him safely to the vet in a timely manner. It meant so much to me and it eased my mind. I would recommend you to any animal family in need and I will definitely be calling on you again in the future for your services. On behalf of myself and Spirit thank you so very much! Lisa

Provider's Response

Thank you Lisa for your kind words and taking your time to write a review in my behalf. I am glad that I was available to provide transportion services, in order to get your cat Spirit to a veterinary hospital for treatment. I understand what it is like for an owner with a sick pet to be at work all day. It is hard to concentrate and do your job well, when you are consumed with worry about a beloved pet. Thank you for contacting me for help. Spirit was a model passenger and although he was in pain, he rode bravely to the animal hospital, in the company of a complete stranger, without a single complaint. He even thanked me by rubbing his nose against my fingers once we got there. I would be more than happy to help you with any future pet care needs. Thank you again for choosing me to be Spirit's driver and I wish him a speedy recovery. Sincerely, Laura
