Why did I start A Pause for Paws, Inc.?

I have always wanted to be self employed and work with animals.  Pet Sitting is the perfect career to combine both of my passions.  Once I got started, I wanted to help as many pets as possible stay home and be comfortable when their pet parents have to be away.  That is a stressful thing and I can make it fun and relaxing for all types of pets!  I also love giving part-time jobs to people who LOVE animals and have a genuine caring spirit to those that need it most.

My Hometown

Columbus, NE

My Pets

Living in an apartment does not give me the comfort of owning a pet. Also, I am very busy and would not like to neglect an animal by not giving it the care and attention it needs due to my lack of time. If I could share my home with an animal, I would choose a Maine Coon cat. They are just so darling.

My Family

I come from a single parent family with four sisters.

My Interests

Reading has become a daily activity for me. I use to draw realistic portraits but reading about life and the world has replaced my desire to draw. Yoga and meditation are also a daily practice in my life.

Why do I LOVE working for A Pause for Paws and Cat’s Pajamas?

Working for A Pause for Paws and Cat’s Pajamas has kept me busy and focused on my personal goals. I learn new things everyday when it comes to the animals I encounter. I believe that everything happens for a reason and being a part of this company has opened up new experiences for me. The only way I can show my gratitude is by working hard and keeping every animal happy and healthy while in my care.

My Interests

I recently embarked on a crafting adventure making handmade dog collars and leashes and it is going well. I participate at craft shows and supply to some of the local stores. I also think health and fitness is important for us and our pets. Eating right and exercising should be part of everyone’s routine. I am also active in the church worship Ministry.

Why do I LOVE working for A Pause for Paws and Cat’s Pajamas?

Pets are an important part of our lives and they need the best care from us. I treat every pet as though they were my own. APP and CPL offers every pet owner the security of having a responsible, dependable and loving pet sitter to care for their cat or dog when they are not available with peace of mind.

Why do I LOVE working for A Pause for Paws and Cat’s Pajamas?

I absolutely look forward to coming in for work every day! As a big animal lover, I of course enjoy caring for all of the animals that come through The Cat’s Pajamas. I have never worked for a company that is so committed to their clients needs and wants before, and the experience is both refreshing and comforting. I am blessed to help provide pet owners the best possible care for their animals.
