29 Palms Critter Sitter 

The Kennel Alternative Since 2008

My Lil Sister, My favorite horse ever "Sassy" and I getting ready for the Pioneer days parade right here in 29 Palms many moons ago. My mom made our costumes. She made the headdress with our turkey and chicken feathers.

My Mom was pulling my dad with a rope. He was dressed as a cowboy. My lil Sis and I are following her on the pony during a Pioneer Days Parade  ;)

I was born and raised in Twentynine Palms, I love it here. I grew up riding & showing horses. We also had chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats etc...My parents owned a video store here named Rocking H Video and they also owned Dave's Auto Body shop many moons ago. I left 29 when I was 18 and then I came back in 2008. I have been cleaning houses and pet/house sitting since I was 16 years old. By the time I hit 35 years old my knees said no more to cleaning houses so I decided to just do what I love and care for animals. I have been doing this 20+ years but if you want to count all the animals I had growing up that I took care of I've been doing this for 40+ years. I prefer to be surrounded by animals not people and that's why I pet sit. Being able to provide for animals is the most rewarding job you could have and I'm good at it. I'm home 24/7 unless it's going to the grocery store or checking on someone's house so animals are rarely left alone. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. I have no children in my house. I don't do relationships because my picker is broken so I gave up years ago which means I'm drama free lol. If you're a judgmental person I'm probably not the pet sitter for you because I don't conform to social norms and I have a lot of tattoo's.

 My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. Never lose the curiosity of a child, it keeps life interesting and keeps you carefree so you never stop exploring!

The one thing you should know about me is...I’m brutally honest! With that being said...
Coddling: If you’re wanting me to take care of your animals while you go on vacation please understand I coddle animals, not humans! I’m not a counselor so if you can’t handle being away from your animals I’m not the pet sitter for you! It's basically like pick your poison...do you want someone that you know is taking care of your animals and has done this decades without incident? If so, I’m your girl! Or do you want someone to coddle you? If so, I’m not the pet sitter for you because I can’t and won’t do it.
Right now you're probably thinking OMG how rude, right? Well you have not had to endure the crazies that I have so you can't possibly understand where I'm coming from. I will not coddle people because in my many years of experience doing this I’ve learned that even when you coddle someone... good is never good enough to the people that need coddling! Instead they just demand more and more because nothing will ever be good enough! Asking the same questions everyday won't give you a different answer.  I don’t charge enough to deal with people like that. I do this to give animals a better place to stay than in a kennel somewhere or left home alone.

Above: Is one of the years my lil sis and I took 1st place in the Pioneer Days Parade

Above: Is just a few of the ribbons and trophies we took home from showing horses. 

Above: My house but it is always changing because I just moved into this house June of 2017.  I have 4 large yards as of right now.  When the dogs get along which is almost always I open the gates during the day on each end and it makes one huge yard for them to run a big circle in. At night I close the gates and they only get the dog door yard off my bedroom that becomes a fence with in a fence for extra safety from predators and it makes it impossible for escape artists to get out. My fencing is 6' chain link and 6' privacy fence. I will post more photos as I continue to get things done.


If you need fencing done I recommend 29 Palms fencing 760-367-6964. They have been putting chain link fence up for me since 2008. They always get the job done fast and do great work. I do my own privacy fence but they also do privacy fence!
