Manhattan and Jersey City Pet Sitter
Hi there! My name is Candace, and I’ve been a Katie’s Kitty pet sitter since 2014. I love all animals. Cats are my absolute favorite. My first cat, Comet, came to me when I was searching for Halebop in the 1996 night sky. I never did see that celestial body, but destiny delivered my little furry best friend. We spent close to two decades together.
As a matter of fact, I successfully managed his kidney disease for 5 years. My family and I have cared for cats with various illnesses such pancreatitis, cardiomyopathy, and seizures. I’ve become quite adept at giving oral medications via syringe or pill, and I can also do subcutaneous fluids. Seniors with special needs hold a special place in my heart.
I’m originally a Jersey girl, but I came to the New York area after finishing my MFA in Writing at California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2014. I work from home as a freelance writer creating content all across the web. I also work as a writing tutor. Freelancing lets me set my own schedule, so I can come visit kitties at various times throughout the day.
You’ve probably seen some of my work on this very website. I update the blog and Facebook page with fun facts and findings on everything feline. Feel free to ask me for advice on your kitty. If I don’t know the answer off hand, I definitely know where to find it.
