Because I only do cats, & own cats myself, I won't have any smells of a dog on me from previous visits. Cats are happier in their own environment & do quite well with one or two visits a day. Most dogs must be walked, & let out several times in a 24 hr. period. Other dogs enjoy accompanying their owners on road trips. I’m focusing my services on cats, so I can offer your kitties the utmost care & attention they deserve. I am happy to provide referrals for anyone who needs the services of a pet sitter and/or doggie daycare, who can accommodate you.
♥Excerpts from a very "SPECIAL LETTER" I received on the benefits of "in-home" pet sitting & the importance of my services!!!!!~taken from a letter sent to "Cindy's Cat Sitting & Dragonfly Dreams Rescues",Plantation, FL
I am sending this e-mail to you to expound upon the fact that your services are well needed. The story of my cat “CC” who passed away 4 years ago at the ripe old age of 15 is one that you can share. I had a business trip that would last 2 weeks. I brought my cat to a friend who knew and loved my cat. She seemed fine at first but after a few days she began to refuse food and water and my friend became concerned. Nothing would entice her to eat. By the time I came home my “CC” was dehydrated and just about ready to die.
I brought her to the vet who proceeded to place an IV for 24 hours. After that time, he said I was wasting my money and would do nothing more for her. It seems that she had missed me so much that she quit interacting and then her fat deposits attacked her organs or something to that effect. He told me to take her home to die or have her put down. That night as sick as she was, she brought me her mouse to play much to my surprise. I told the children to pet her and talk to her every time they came near her and within a few days she was healthy again. She was 8 years old then. She lived a long and healthy life until old age took over at 15 years.
The point is an animal cannot be told you will be back; they just know that you disappeared. Stress is the major point of illness when an owner just disappears for no apparent reason to the cat. I hope that this story helps you see that what you are offering is a really needed service. I have moved to KY for a while but will contact you when I get back to FL.
To your success
