Abby has had her little white dog since she was in 2nd grade. She has loved growing up with a furry best friend and is always sad to say goodbye when she is away at college. Besides little white dogs, Abby has experience watching and interacting with larger dog breeds including giant mastiffs and great danes. Dogs with special needs like elderly diaper wearing or anxious rescues is something she has handled before too. Also the occasional Leopard gecko. She keeps fish (guppies) and has cared for cats as well. Everytime she goes to the pet store she is tempted to adopt a bird but can‘t at the moment so she would love to spend time with your’s. If your pet likes to relax or is on the excitable side Abby always has the patience for both. She truly values any time she gets to spend with an animal and their unique personality.

I am a working professional with nearly two decades of experience in the corporate world. My love for animals, however, was my motivation for becoming a pet sitter. While growing up and caring for my family’s cats and dogs, I was certain that I’d become a veterinarian, but pet sitting is as close as I’ve come. I currently have three cats, Sonny (17), MooMoo (17), and Harry (15) who is diabetic, so I’m very well versed in insulin injections and oral medications. I love that my family and friends have entrusted me to care for their pets. However, being a long-time Whiskers to Tails client myself, I understand that trusting others to care for our pets can be difficult, so I’m hoping to make it as easy for others as it has been for me.

Hello! My name is Anika and I have a true passion and great love for all different pets! It would be very hard to imagine my life without pets. Not only did I grow up with pets in the house but grew up with pets outside as I lived on a hobby farm! I have taken care of so many animals from cats to goats to dogs and even horses. Animals bring me a true uncomparable joy. I am a recent graduate from the University of St. Thomas and when I am not pet sitting I perform in my band Ani Rae, as well as work as a Promoter Representative at a new up and coming venue in Minneapolis. I cannot wait to meet you all as well as your beloved pets and hope to become an influential part of their lives!

Hello, my name is Anita! Growing up, we always had a dog and a cat in the house which is where my love for animals stems from. I currently live in Apple Valley with our family German Shepard, Alma, and our two cats, Liza and Loki. They are the most entertaining, adorable, and chaotic animals a pet parent could ask for. They have such big personalities and I love being around them. In the past, I have done some pet sitting for family and friends when they were away, but I am excited to do more and meet new animals. I hope to create a safe and trusted environment for pet parents while they are away from their furry friends.

Like many of the pet sitters for Whiskers to Tails my love for animals and pet sitting began at an early age. I began pet sitting at the age of eight and have been enjoying working with the animals and clients of Whiskers to Tails since 2019. I primarily care for cats but also have experience in caring for dogs (from chihuahuas to mastiffs), iguanas, frogs, birds, guinea pigs, and hamsters. I don’t shy away from caring for animals that have special medical and care needs. I love getting to know the personalities of all of the animals that I spend time with and understanding how to make them comfortable with me taking care of them while you are away. When not pet sitting, you will find me spending time with my family (including our Russian Blue cat, Cookie) and playing music with my band.

Having begun my pet sitting career in August of 2015, Whiskers to Tails is the most qualified and caring group of pet sitters I found thus far. My animal-loving journey started when I was very young. I was raised with a Doberman Pinscher, a Boxer, and a parakeet and often spent time with neighborhood pets on my way home from school! As an adult, I’ve raised, trained, and enjoyed the companionship of six Miniature Schnauzers, a Toy Poodle, a Goldendoodle and a Bernedoodle (the Doodles are my grand-puppies). In addition, I’ve owned and cared for fish, gerbils, guinea pigs, and hamsters. In case you couldn’t tell, taking care of animals is my favorite hobby! Prior to my employment at WTTPS, I worked at a local pet hospital where I gained incredible knowledge of animal behaviors, health, and nutrition. My tenure with WTTPS includes providing care for many cats, dogs, fish, and even turtles. It will be a joy for me to care for your pets whether they are canine or feline, whether they have feathers or fur, whether they require lots of love or are more independent. I want your pets to be safe and secure while you are away, and moreover, I want you—the pet parent— to be confident that your fur babies are happy, cared for, and loved.

Hi! I am Annemarie. I have grown up with dogs and have a huge heart for all animals. My family has a 5 year old chocolate lab who is such a big part of our family.

Outside of pet sitting, I am going to be a senior at the University of Minnesota Duluth and pursuing a Public Health major and a Health Coaching minor.

Hi fellow animal lovers. I am recently retired from the Mpls Water Works after 38 years. I live with my wild man Belgian Malinois (Swagger) in Columbia Heights. I bring a lifetime of experience raising happy, healthy and beloved dogs. When pet owners have to leave their family pets, I know they are happiest and more comfortable being at home. Having a stable and reliable sitter helps your pets feel safe and familiar until you come home. All of my dogs have enjoyed at home pet-sitting whenever I had to travel. I am happy to bring that safe, cozy feeling to your pets.

Christina grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota where animals often crossed her path, especially lost cats, whom she often snuck into her room before her brothers outed her or tried to rehabilitate and comfort injured wildlife. At a young age, she developed a passion for helping animals feel better physically, but also recognized the value of connections between people and animals in how understanding one another allows us to live peacefully together. Christina has spent years researching best practices on how to bridge the gap of human and animal psychologies to obtain desired behaviors from our pets, and enjoys teaching other pet parents how to effectively communicate with their own animal companions. Prior to joining WTTPS in 2015, Christina dabbled her paws in various animal-related fields such as veterinary technology, grooming, pet supplies sales, solo-pet sitting, and volunteering at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. When asked about why she likes working with us, Christina wrote, “I am proud to be a part of the WTTPS team. I truly enjoy caring for pets, but am especially honored to earn the trust of their parents. I like open and transparent communication and want to give of myself what I’d like from someone caring for my furbabies.” At home, Christina is owned by fish and two special needs senior rescues (a spirited tripawd Beagle/Dachshund and a sensitively sweet Border Collie/Golden Retriever). In her free-time, she can be found practicing photography, exploring nature trails, attending local car shows, and embarking on adventures with her pups!

Hi I‘m Georgia. I’m a mom to two young adults, a 12 yo cat (Zero), 2 yo cat (Shoji), 1 yo cat (Sunburst), and a 7 month old Boston Terrier puppy (Urza). That’s basically 3 toddlers and a grumpy old man.
I’m very good with the grumpy cats. Before the three toddlers, I had a very grumpy cat named Oskar. So named because he was found as a kitten in a dumpster with his paws taped together. I had to warn everyone, he bites. But I loved him anyway. Even at the end when he had a metal Mohawk and needed insulin. He was my baby.
I promise to love and respect your fur babies like they were my own.

Jennifer has always had a passion for animals. She grew up in Philadelphia with dogs and cats and had three cats most of her adult life. She has also owned white rats and was an “auntie” to a snake, an iguana and two bearded dragons. She always wanted to work with animals, but after she earned her associate degree in veterinary technology, her career path took a detour into marketing research. She was thrilled to have found her way back to her first love, animals, in 2013 and has been pet sitting for Whiskers to Tails Petsitting ever since. Her education in veterinary technology paired with her experience with her own pets with chronic medical conditions has taught her to skillfully administer all different types of medications, including transdermal creams and gels, oral and sublinqual pills and liquids, and subcutaneous insulin and fluids. She is happy to get to care for cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, fish and even a few reptiles in her pet sitting work with Whiskers to Tails.

Hello! My name is Kallie and like many of the other sitters, I‘ve never been able to imagine my life without an animal in the house. Growing up, I was surrounded by labs and lab mixes, and I currently have an 11 year old chocolate lab named Lindie (pictured below). Whether it was for a neighbor’s cat or a friend‘s dog, I’ve been pet sitting since I was a young kid. I absolutely love all dogs and cats, and have a special place in my heart for big dogs! I‘m always open to trying new things, so I’m totally open to pets outside the realm of dogs and cats. I‘m currently a student at The University of St.Thomas studying music business, and when I’m not working with animals you can find me working at a concert for First Avenue or writing music and performing!

Hello! My name is Kate and I have been pet-sitting since 2019, though I‘ve had animals my whole life. I am very comfortable with all types of pets, and have a great deal of experience with those who require special care. My last cat was a diabetic who needed daily insulin, and my current cat is an adorable rescue with high anxiety who definitely requires plenty of space and patience. I’ve also taken care of dogs, birds and fish. I love animals greatly and feel it‘s important to treat every pet just like my own - I understand how difficult it can be to leave your fur baby, and I strive to make them (and you!) feel as comfortable and at ease as possible while you’re apart.
When I’m not pet-sitting, I like to write and create artwork, and plan to pursue a career in illustration. I especially enjoy drawing, painting and creating collages, and love using my pets and animals in general as inspiration for the subject matter of my pieces. I also enjoy reading, being in nature, and spending time with my family.

Hello there! I‘m Kayla, and I’m delighted to be your dedicated pet sitter, ready to share my immense love for animals. Since I can remember, furry friends have been an integral part of my life, and their joyful presence fills me with happiness every day. I grew up surrounded by two wonderful lab mix dogs, and one of them, Copper (pictured below), has been my loyal companion for an incredible 16 years. Both our dogs are rescues, which has nurtured a deep care and compassion for animals within my family. My strong bond with pets has led me to embark on a pet sitting journey from a very young age. Throughout my upbringing, I took care of our two dogs on a daily basis, ensuring their well-being and happiness. Additionally, I happily provided care for dogs and cats belonging to family friends. Ensuring the happiness and well-being of all animals has always been a top priority in my life. I genuinely adore dogs and cats, but my love for animals doesn‘t stop there. I’m always eager to expand my horizons and embrace the opportunity to care for various other pets beyond the traditional feline and canine companions. Besides spending time with adorable animals, I‘m also a senior at the University of St. Thomas, pursuing a degree in Real Estate. When I’m not taking care of pets or focusing on my studies, you can find me at my part-time job at Patina.

Hi, my name is Kierra and I, like you, have a deep love and adoration for all animals. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to work with animals and had a fondness for them. My dream job in elementary school was to be a marine biologist. Since that dream didn‘t become a reality, I chose to adopt my own animals in adulthood. I have two cats who are my life and honestly my children. I grew up with dogs, cats, and reptiles. My family’s first animals were cats when I was a baby, then we had reptiles, and dogs in my teen years. Caring for animals is something that I will always be passionate about. Animals of all kinds make my heart happy.

Since early childhood Kiki has valued the lives of precious beings on four paws. She has a passion for adopting previously traumatized animals and restoring their trust in humans. Friends and family members took notice and asked her to care for their dogs. Although raised around dogs, Kiki attracted many cat friends as well, which led to even more pet sitting requests. While living in Florida, she regularly looked after dogs, cats, a bird and a hamster. Since moving to Minnesota, she has pursued other opportunities to spend more time with new four-legged and furry friends. She spends a lot of her free time with her nature-loving Beagle/Lab mix named Belle.

Hi! I‘m Lacey. I’ve been an animal lover my whole life! I‘ve had fish, cats, a rat, and have had two full-size poodle "brothers". My most recent dog love was Vera, a perfect angel pitbull who I got 14 years with. I’m comfortable with all types of dogs, and know the needs and behaviors of bully breeds very well. I had the honor of caring for Vera in her elder years, so I‘m very familiar with the needs and special care that elder dogs need. I’ve been dogsitting for some pitbull friends lately and also am a cat aunt and cat step-parent. I’m so excited to have more dog friends and give your dogs the special attention they deserve while their human is away.

Greetings! My name is Leslie and I love cats. I’ve been a cat sitter for about 10 years and have made many furry friends in that time. I enjoy getting to know each cat’s unique personality: who likes to cuddle, who likes to play hide and seek, who plays with their toys, and who just wants to nap in the sun. Two of my regular clients wait in the bathtub for me because they like to drink from the faucet —with their mom’s permission, of course! They’re all so lovable!
My experience includes caring for cats who need medicine.
In my spare time, I am an editor of books and community newspapers.
I’m originally from Akron, Ohio, but have lived in the Twin Cities for a long time. My husband and I have two grown children and a 1-year-old granddaughter. Our furry family member is named Coffee Cake (because she looks like a coffee cake with streusel on top) but we call her Puddy, as in “Puddytat.” I look forward to caring for your feline family members too!

From the playful kittens to the wise old-timers like my beloved Sumac, who has been my loyal companion throughout the challenging times of the pandemic, I’ve nurtured and cherished feline friends of all ages and personalities.
But my love for animals doesn‘t stop there. I have also cared for numerous dogs, learning to understand their unique needs and preferences.

Hello pet parents! I’ve been fortunate enough to provide my own pet family and currently have 2 dogs (a beagle and an australian cattle dog) and 2 cats (both domestic short-haired). Spending quality time with them is always the highlight of my day. In addition, I regularly spend time with my cat nieces since they live next door to me. I seek out any opportunity I can to spend time with animals, which is how I found myself getting into pet sitting.
Service areas include South Minneapolis, St. Paul, and surrounding area.
Hi, my name is Poe! Fur Auntie to many and Kitty Mama to one. My sweet AliSoo came into my life when she was just a kitty nearly 5 years ago and has been my solace ever since. Before her, my first animal relative was named Hershey, a guinea pig of many shades of chocolatey brown that would come to me when I called and loved to snuggle when I would read. The connection we create with our animal relatives can truly change our lives for the better. During my time as a Pet Sitter I have gotten to care for various reptiles, dogs, cats, insects and more. It brings me joy that I get to offer moments of relief & ease to families by taking care of their animals. Outside my Kitty Mama duties, you can find me outside wildcrafting/foraging, cookin’ up a new recipe, painting or dreaming about croissants from Black Walnut Bakery.

It’s hard to imagine my life without animals. More than just a professional passion, dogs and cats have been family and extended family for as long as I can remember. Taking care of pets is more than just that. I am so honored when another person places their beloved family member into my care, and I look forward to meeting yours. I have experience with senior canines and those with challenging temperaments, including dog aggression.
Currently pet care is my full time job, so I can focus on your pets‘ individual needs. I’m an active person, so walks and play time in the park are welcome if appropriate for their ability and temperament.
I am currently available to pet sit the greater Minneapolis and Saint Paul area. I am located in White Bear Lake, MN.
Hi there! My name is Samantha (feel free to call me Sam). I started my career as a pet sitter with Whiskers to Tails because I’ve always been a huge animal lover and I figured this is the best opportunity to give my love, care and attention to animals that need it while their human(s) are away! I’ve grown up with dogs, but I’ve also cared for the cats, ferrets, hamsters, and reptiles in my family/neighborhood. I’ve worked with many ages from baby to old – with special care involvement – I’m ready to take on any pet and give them the time and attention they deserve while you’re away! My communication methods are flexible to whatever works best for you – whether that frequent or brief, I’m here to make your life as stress free as possible!

Sarah is a lover of all animals and has a special place in her heart for pets that are labelled “difficult” or “less adoptable.” She grew up with two cats, fish, and a strong-willed but loveable collie/husky/shepherd mix. She began pet-sitting during her six years of graduate school at the University of Minnesota, at which time she cared for dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, and fish. She also spent two years at a volunteer-run shelter in the Washington, DC metro area that focuses on medical and behavioral special needs cats. As a result, she has a lot of experience medicating cats and working with shy cats. She adopted two fluffy kitty boys from that shelter who have various special needs but make her smile every day. Currently, Sarah lives in Maplewood. She loves making new animal friends of all kinds and works to ensure that the pets she cares for are safe and happy- whether that means giving them space or lots of hands-on attention!

Hi, I’m Sarah. I grew up on a dairy farm and have always been drawn to animals (my favorites being cats and horses). I came to Whiskers to Tails as a customer a few years ago because I needed dependable care for my two loveable Maine Coon brothers who meant the world to me. After long and happy lives, both have now passed away and I would love to use my cat mom skills to take care of your feline family members. I would like to give you the peace of mind that I always had when Whiskers to Tails was caring for my boys.
My service area is the northwest metro including Maple Grove, Champlin, Brooklyn Park, Coon Rapids, Anoka and Blaine.
Hello! My name is Terri and I love and adore all animals! I have had pets the majority of my life, I did go to schooling for Veterinary science, but life decided to take me down another path. Now I have the pleasure of taking care of other pet families while they are away. I am a proud pet parent of a 4 year old Cockapoo named Waffles, a 8 year old Lhasapoo/Maltese named Reagan whom we adopted 2 years ago, and a 11 year old Bengal, named Saber. My other experience includes volunteering at the humane society through high school and college while I was there, I was given the opportunity to assist vets with meds and injections as needed, so I did it and absolutely loved it. I also worked for a pet sitting company where I visited and took care of pets for other pet parents in their homes. I treat every pet like they are my own and I love making personal connections your furry family members and look forward to meeting you and your sweet furry family members.
