About Patty

Hello. I am an American who met their love online and moved here to be with him. I chose not to have children from a very early age, but if I had Richard Branson's property and Oprah's money, I would try and rescue every animal I could. There is no love greater than that of an animal in my opinion. I don't even eat animals. I just love them with all my heart. I have 1 Exotic Himalayan Persian Cat. She is like my child and I treat her as such...and I would do the same for yours. I struggle with pets that are left outside or chained ... I must decline as it hurts my soul too much. I believe pets are part of the family and deserve to be inside.

I am a self-employed Director with Scentsy Home Fragrance and work from home usually, so am free to work anywhere and provides me with the freedom to hang out with your furbabies at various times of the day or night.

***Note: unless we are in a place where it's allowed, I do not walk dogs off a leash.

*** Lots of animals at one time may require a higher fee.

*** Housesitting is usually me staying very late at your place (usually about 10-12 hours a day) but still me going home at night due to my chronic pain and my own pet.

(There isn’t a place to tweak that in description:)

Patty is great, goes above and beyond to care for your animals. She was great with our nervous dog who isn't good with strangers and we also have a cat and birds. Recommend Patty for awesome care of your furry family members.

Patty was great with all of our fur babies! They were all well taken care of and happy when we got home. She also sent us daily photos which we loved! Would 100% have her pet sit for us again!

Skills

Specific Skills

< 1 years of experience

Specific skills? Gosh...I don't have any fancy skills or a vet degree...I have love, common sense, attention to detail, empathy and a heart that speaks to animals. I am over 40 years old, have had all sorts of pets since I was young and they usually have lived VERY long lives. I had a Rotty mix who lived to be 20 years old and a cat that lived until he was 18. I will do whatever is in my power to love and respect your babies and your home. I am German American so I am very very clean and tiny, organised, responsible, and take pride in providing amazing service and care in whatever I do. Taking care of your pets would be an honour.
