is insured, bonded, and pet first-aid certified (since 2007);
has extensive experience with a wide range of beautiful kitties (and their quirky behaviours) and other adorable critters;
has cared for rabbits, rats & mice, chinchillas, hedgehogs, pigs & guinea pigs, hamsters, parrots & other birds, snakes & lizards, and many fish (including outdoor koi) ... as well as lots and lots of cats;
also offers one-on-one private dog walking in East Vancouver, in your neighbourhood - seewww.arfnannie.ca for details;
will always be the one visiting your companion, allowing them to build a lasting bond - she does not contract out visits to any third party or contract employees (on the rare occasion that Anne is over-scheduled (as she does her best to accommodate all requests), Anne's partner, who is equally passionate about animals, may help out).
each visit includes ...
Lots of playtime and cuddles;
Feeding based on your loved one's requirements;
Cleaning litter box(es) (or equivalent);
Dispensing oral medication as needed;
Report (and pictures) sent to you via email or text (you may also see pictures of your loved one in the gallery).
We want to ensure your home appears actively inhabited in your absence. To help with this, we can also:
Turn lights on / off;
Turn music on / off;
Open / close blinds;
Gather your mail / collect your newspapers;
Water your plants.
Depending on yours and your companion(s) needs, Anne can provide a 30 minute visit once per day, once every two days, or twice per day (two 30 minute visits).
$25 per 30 minute visit for up to three cats (or critters).
As we are a small company, GST is not charged.

$5 is charged for each subsequent key pick-up and/or drop-off (Cat & Annie can safely store your key for future use and/or you may arrange to pick up your key after service is rendered at no cost).
Visits are usually completed during the day - evening visits may be arranged on an exception basis, schedule permitting.
Same day cancellations are invoiced for that day's service fee - please make every effort to cancel 24 hours in advance.
