Hi! I’m Maureen Sullivan, lifelong pet lover and native Chicagoan. I have been professionally sitting pets since 2008. I’ve found that this is a great way to play with OPP (other people’s pets). I have met many professionals who needed reliable, honest and caring care for their precious pets.
I live on the near South Side of Chicago and have decided to focus my business within a 5 mile radius of my home. This allows me to be near enough to any client’s home to handle special care and trips to the vet if needed.
I grew up in Chicago with dogs, hamsters, fish, turtles, birds and continued to choose to live with pet cats and a ferret in my adult life. My husband, Rob and I currently share our home with 3 rescue kitties ages 11, 8 and just under 2. I have taken care of animals with diabetes, dental woes, renal failure, old age issues, a variety of cancers, digestive issues, broken limbs, feral/partially feral, pregnant and have rescued too many animals to count. So far, I haven’t met an animal that I didn’t like and with the exception of feral cats the response has been mutual.
I really love what I do and would like to be able to offer your pets the attention and TLC that I offer my own.
