and I’ve never had a problem or situation arise that I couldn’t solve quickly, creatively, & in a calm manner, without ever disrupting a client’s vacation. (Although I have some good stories to tell!) Animals love me & I love them. I’m not sure why, but it’s true. If they want to sleep on the couch with me, we do. If we need to take 10 walks a day, we do, & have fun doing it. If a pet is not allowed on the furniture, I make sure that doesn’t happen. I’ve cared for old family pets, sick animals who needed meds, wild & energetic puppies & kittens, pets with highly structured routines. Indoors & outdoors, in every kind of weather. Horses to chickens, goats to guinea pigs. On farms & in small apartments.
I’ve had clients re-schedule vacation plans so that I was available to take care of their pets. I so much believe that ALL animals are infinitely better off staying in their own home, eating the food they always eat, at the time they always eat it, following their usual routines when their owners need to be gone.
I can provide you with many excellent references from clients in North Carolina, as well as Illinois & Indiana. These clients can assure you that I am a trustworthy, responsible, flexible person,totally respectful of my clients privacy, & well-qualified to care for your dear pets & home, while you are away.
I’m a college educated (Iowa State U.), mature (well, 62 yrs. old, anyway!), mother of 4 daughters & grandmother of 3. An organic gardener of 32 years. I’m also an artist--decorative painting & garden stepping stones right now. I do not smoke, drink, or do any kind of drugs.
Please e-mail me or call me. I can send you one of my brochures. We can discuss your needs & situation. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do some business!
Thank you, Kathleen Vasek
