About Geri Lennon and Lennon's Pet Sitting to the Stars.
As a clinical microbiologist, specializing in infectious disease, I've worked several years in World Health with Center for Disease Control and other international organizations.. My work has spanned six continents including time in the Amazon and the Himalayas as well as Africa and Central America. I've studied and taught zoology and have worked with large and small animals and livestock and was trained in medicating them (injections). Call me a hybrid between Mrs. Pollifax and Indiana Jones.
I’m still a consultant in biomedical communications but can do this readily via the Internet and an occasional trip abroad.
I'm a published writer and now find that focusing on writing and animals is my love and dedication. I take care of all kinds of animals in your home.
OK, is it really true? Have I pet sat for the stars? Yes, and their hounds and pussycats, are stars as well.
I could drop names but I won't. Privacy is my middle name. I could tell stories, hmmm, just one. A fabulous English spaniel flown on a jet from New York, picked up by a limo at the airport, and delivered to the Hollywood Hills. . The sweet pup was just that: sweet pup. Meanderings to pet stores for rhinestone studded collars aside, the pup was still the star.
So, suffice it to say, all our pets are stars in our lives. We love them and they certainly love us.
It is with that in mind that I do my special work. My mission is to make your pet as comfortable and as well loved as you do. My mission is also to decrease your worries for that precious one while you are off on business or holiday.
I move in, with a laptop and game is on. WE play, we walk, we nap, we talk. Yes, we talk. Am I an animal whisperer, oh you have no idea. In the end, it's kind of like camp with Geri. Do I follow your rules? Absolutely. I am not in your home to feed treats and break rules. I am there to make your pet comfortable, safe and loved.
I also take care of your house. It is your sanctuary. I do not scatter or invite party hounds. I live invisibly and honor your home. I also am there as a presence in your absence. I bring in mail,
park my car outside, and rotate lights just like you do when you are there.
So guess what? You get double bang for your buck.
I have many references and a background check with the federal government (Global Entry) .
I've done pet and home sitting for over twenty-five years.
I love all animals and have not only great respect for your home but my primary intent is to keep your loved and loving pets safe and secure so you have no concerns while you are away from them. I have also worked with healing modalities and the pets get it. I'm an author and your pets also become my editors. BTW: I'm also good at working with disabled and elder pets.
