Articles on the website

Did you know I publish articles on my website? I do. Not all of them by me, either. You can read other author's articles, too. I try to add at least one a week, so the website is always growing. Some of the articles are in a feed, so you get a teaser. Other articles are printed in their entirety on their own page. There are links toward the bottom of the page with all the articles listed that are currently on the website.

Check back often so you can get the latest!

Toys for Cat Sitting?

Yep! Toys for cat sitting, too! When I sit a kitty, they get a couple of new toys, and those toys really do need to be NEW! I never give a cat a toy that has been used by another cat. There are many reasons for this, including disease and jealousy.

I rub the toy to get my scent on it, so the cat will come to me and get used to me. The cat also realizes that I'm not a bad person, and I'll be there to play. That always helps to reduce the loneliness and they toys reduce the boredom while they wait for me.

Catnip for Cat Sitting?

Catnip for Cat Sitting jobs? Sure! I bring a little of the good stuff with me when I first start a cat sitting job.

Cats can be pretty finicky when their owners go out of town. They don't want to see anyone, they are lonely, they are a little snitty. So, I bring catnip and dig around for an old ratty washcloth or clean rag. I'll put a little bit of catnip on the cloth (about 1/2 teaspoon) and rub it around to break up the leaves and get it aromatic. I'll then give the cloth to the cat.

They go nuts!

My favorite catnip is Cosmic Catnip. It comes in a plastic tub and stays fresh to the very bottom of the tub. Much better than the stuff at the local store in a plastic bag!

New Website About Pets

I've joined a friend in his website about pets in Knoxville, TN. If you are a pet-related business, don't be surprised if you get a call from me. We are accepting paid advertising (very reasonable!) and using some affiliate programs to add to and round out our offerings.

Right now, it's only cats and dogs - but we will include horses, reptiles, birds and ALL animals as time goes on. Anybody who has a pet will want to know about us! And we want to know about you!

More Cat Sitting Charges....

This is Poe. He's 17 years old! He likes to sleep a lot, and meow to hear the echos. His mom trusted me to drive 30 miles round trip, twice a day, to see him and feed him. He only has 2 teeth left!

He has bad arthritis, so he needs medicine in his food every other day. He's a black kitty, but he is so sweet, you don't feel scared at all!

Cat Sitting...

This is Mica (meeka). She was my cat-charge about 2 weeks ago. This is the third time I've watched her for her person. I finally remembered my camera!

She likes to play, talk, and eat! She's a real character! She needs to have a good play session every day, because she gets so lonely.

She bites me the first couple of days to show her displeasure that I'm not her mom. But she comes around and snuggles later, too.

She's a cutie pie!
