Catsitting for our Staycation

We just had a lady come over who is going to be the new person who sits on us while Mommy and Daddy are away! Our old catsitter quit doing it, so Mommy had to find a new one. She did not want to ask Grandma, although she would have done it if needed.

For the week of Thanksgiving, this new woman will sit on us while our folks visit Grandma Mimi in Pensacola.

Mommy was a little unsure of her at first because she works another job in addition to catsitting. (She hopes to someday have enough petsitting business to do only that.) But all doubts disappeared when me, Kiki and BUTTERS appeared to give her our vote. Well, Butters gave the yes vote and then went to hide in the basement. But he never comes out when strange people are around.

She is really nice and will take great care of us. She gave Mommy the price, and Mommy said that if she ever wants to quit her job at Sears (where she has worked for 28 years!) then she better start charging more money, especially for clients with a lot of pets. Now why would Mommy go and say thing like that! We want to keep our money, don't we?

But the catsitter admitted that several clients have told her that she is undercharging, but she loves doing it so much that she hates to ask for more money. We want her to succeed, so Mommy told her to charge more and a couple of other ideas. I am sure she was thrilled to get this unsolicited advice!

Gilmore, Lilith and Hazel had to be introduced via Mommy's Facebook page because they would not come out to say hi. Mommy told the catsitter she might not ever see them in real life. But she has such a nice way with kitties that I bet maybe Lilith will make an appearance.

Hopefully we will like the new catsitter because we need to be left again in February while Mommy and Daddy go on their vacation to Canada. It's a relief to have someone now, and Grandma is nearby in case we need her, but I need to get the phone number and learn how to use the phone! MOL!

Wait a minute! If Mommy and Daddy will be away on Turkey Day, how are we going to get any turkey bits? Note to Self...Call an emergency meeting of the boy kitty club to discuss.

We are lucky to have good sitters, too. Glad you found one you liked.
