Well thanks. 🙂

I may. My current business is much more intensive. I actually go and live at people’s houses for the week or two that they are away. I won’t be able to do that much when I move, but I’ll probably still do some small stuff like letting dogs out and doing cats. Thanks for the idea!

Also an important service! (Since kennels are disgusting and disease-ridden.)

Seriously, there’s a lot of coin to be earned though in those on-call pet care things. Not sure why more people don’t do it.

Kennels aren’t always disease ridden & disgusting, although many can be. The main issue with them is that the animals become so much more stressed than they would just being left in their home. Adjusting to a new place, new people and all the other dogs is more stressful than anything for a dog. It is much more comfortable to have a petsitter come to your home to take care of them, if possible.

And I think it’s because some people ONLY like their pets and don’t want to deal with others.


Curiosity was framed. Ignorance killed the cat.

I work in IT in the oil and gas industry.
Been in the IT field for the last 15 years :S

Sometimes I wish I had gone to a different field such as the fitness industry or to psychology.

I’m currently a Cashier at Walmart. Been doing that for over a year now. I also have a Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design so I do freelance from time to time on the side while I look for something that’ll suite me job wise in the field itself. I also have my own little art business off to the side Etching Glass but it’s just a little here and there, nothing big.

I work for the local County Council in the Highways Department. My actual job title is Highway Maintenance Technician and I get involved in everything from potholes to new road construction, cycleways, flooding issues, snow ploughing and highway safety. It’s pretty varied and keeps me busy!

I have been known to get a bit dirty with a spade but I’m actually more of the decision maker behind the actual physical hard work ( I spent a day with a crew a while back and those guys work hard! I would probably last a day!). I spend most of my time doing inspections and finding defects, looking into engineering solutions to traffic problems and making decisions regarding closing roads. I don’t think we have a single female on our maintenance crews and I am only one of 2 in the client team. It definitely need more ladies! 🙂
