Park Slope Cat Sitter
Hi, I’m Sheila and I first started working as a professional pet sitter with Katie’s Kitty soon after my little dog of 17 years, Louise, passed away. At the time, I was also teaching pre-K and I found that taking care of cats and dogs (and sometimes chinchillas and other surprising pets) was a healing way to work through this event in my life.
After three years of building warm and trusting relationships with many different clients and their precious pets, I made a big life change and moved to Vietnam for a teaching position. As I also wanted to continue having animals in my life, I started to seek out friends and neighbors who were in need of a loving and reliable person to look after their pet.
Currently, my time is divided between teaching English in Vietnam, studying French in France, and pet sitting in Brooklyn (most often during the summer and winter holidays). I feel very fortunate to be working for one of my favorite bosses ever (shout out to Peter Lindenbaum!) along with some wonderful longtime clients and pets.
I am always looking forward to meeting new pet owners and their cats. Although I’m usually based in Park Slope, South Slope, Sunset Park, Windsor Terrace, Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill, I’m happy to consider traveling to other neighborhoods.
