CATS & CRITTERS
Services & Rates

Cash, Checks, and PayPal (which allows you to use Visa and Mastercard) are accepted.


An initial consultation to meet you and your cat(s) is FREE

I will provide whatever you need in terms of references so that you can feel absolutely comfortable choosing me!

NOTE: I am ALSO available EVENINGS, WEEKENDS, and most HOLIDAYS.

ALSO -- After ANY visit, I offer to send a short text or email about our time together that day, as well as ocassional photos!

PLUS (with your approval) I will give your cat(s) treats at the end of my visit. I always carry low-cal treats for cats. But, let me know if your cat has allergies or sensitivities, and then I can just use the treats you keep at home. (If you have other types of critters, I will use the treats you provide, if any.)

The main thing I want you to understand is that I try to have a lot of FUN and interact with each cat, as long as they are open to it!

If they like to play or just be petted (or both), that's wonderful! I can also brush them if they love to have that done. (Some cats hate it!)

I have also had experience with fish, rabbits, a Guinea Pig, plus minimal interaction with a parrot. I'm sure I can learn to care for most any critters with your instructions. If I have misgivings about it at all, I will be honest about it!

I love ALL animals, so I always do my best to interact with any cat or critter who is open to it!

-----------------------------------

NOTE:

At the present time, I do not offer overnight pet sitting
(where I sleep in your home).

I also do not offer boarding in my own home. 

ONLY if you live within 15 min. of my home, I could possibly make 2 visits a day, but I would not be able to make my first visit of the day until at least mid-morning. However, because I am a night owl, I can easily make my last visit of the day pretty late at night, even up to 10, 11, or even midnight.

So, if your pet(s)' schedule could adjust to that -- or you could have other family or friends handle any non-negotiable early morning visits -- let me know what your needs might be. I would charge for each individual visit according to its length, as described below.

-----------------------------------


Cat and Other Critter Sitting

I offer 2 lengths of visits -- 20 minutes or 45-60 minutes.

With either length, I will take care of your pet's needs (feeding, cleaning and refilling water bowls, plus cleaning their litter boxes or cages) and do any extra tasks such as take in the mail, water indoor plants, switch up the lights left on when I leave, and/or set the garbage cans out and then back.

-- 20-minute visits are really ONLY for non-social or timid/shy cats and other non-interactive critters -- especially if my presence may cause them more stress than being home alone.

-- 45-min. visits are for playful, friendly, attention-seeking cats. After completing all chores, I will spend time playing with and/or petting them, whatever they love most! Even if they are not super playful or cuddly, they may feel comfort in having me around talking to them and hanging out.

If you approve, I also leave low-calorie cat treats for them. Some cats absolutely love it when I hide the treats around in various spots where they are likely to hang out, so that they can "hunt" for them after I've gone! :o)

I also keep a collection of hand-sewn-by-me catnip-stuffed felt fishy's, inexpensive fishing pole toys, pom pom toys, crinkle or jingle balls, etc. to leave as gifts!

Additional Services:

 Medications:

PILLS:  I have had the best luck using pill shooters, pill pockets, or if possible hiding or dissolving them in food.

INSULIN SHOTS: I can give the shots but, if the dosage depends on how much your cat eats first, we will need to be able to be in close contact so that I am sure that I am properly gaging the dose. I can text you pictures of their food so you can confirm my estimation.

Extra Time: 

If the time is available in my schedule, you can add 15 minute increments for $5 extra for each increment to the base price.

Extra Tasks (if you are traveling):

NO CHARGE to feed and clean/refill the water bowls, or to take in the mail, water indoor plants, switch up the lights left on when I leave, and/or set the garbage cans out and then back.

Outdoor Watering (if you are traveling): 

I can also possibly water outdoor plants/garden for an extra fee, if desired. I can give you a quote at our initial meeting when I see the extent of what would be required.


* NOTE: 

-- My Location:
I live in Bloomington just south of 494 on 12th Ave. So. (basically, 12th Ave. So. at 82nd Street)

12th Ave. runs north/south parallel with/between Cedar (Hwy. 77) and Portland -- relatively near the Mall of America (to its west), and southwest of the airport.

-- IF you live MORE than 30 min. away from my home, unfortunately, I CANNOT even consider taking the job!


Additional Charges:

Holiday Surcharges: 
There is an additional $10 per VISIT charge on the following days:
New Year's Eve
New Year's Day
Easter
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Christmas Eve
Christmas Day
.
 
Extra Trips to Pick Up or Drop Off Keys:

We usually make arrangements for the keys at our initial visit.

You may not be comfortable making a decision to hire me until after I get home and email you my references document that includes full contact information for my past and current clients.

In that case, once you make the decision to hire me, we can often figure out a way for you to hide the key(s) on your property where I can pick them up upon arrival, keep with me for the duration of our agreement, then leave for you upon my last visit. (If you have a mailbox that drops mail inside your home, I can drop them into that upon leaving.)

However, if you are not comfortable with that and it's necessary for me to make additional trips back to your house to either pick up or drop off the key(s), I need to charge extra for my time and gas:

$5 per trip if you live within 15 min. of me.

$10 per trip if you live between 15-30 min. from me.
