Meet Madison WI Pet Sitter Extraordinaire, Rebecca!

Meet Madison WI Pet Sitter Extraordinaire, Rebecca! Rebecca grew up with an assortment of unusual pets and has two interesting hidden talents!

I’m in charge of: Making sure your furry friends get nice and tired by the end of their walk! There’s nothing better than a content pet afterward who wants to just lounge in their bed with a toy or a treat. Whatever specialized treatment your buddy needs, I’ll match it…and give them extra scratches and snuggles!

My furry family: I’ve grown up as one of the pack with dogs, hunted alongside barn cats, groomed and rode horses, critters such as rats, mice, and degus.

At the moment, my responsibility is to tire out and play with my roommate’s dog Charlie when he comes to visit and serve as the official couch/snuggle buddy for Azzie (as pictured here).

Super power: If I could have any supernatural power, it would be telepathy. That way I could see what my furry friends truly want at any moment without having to guess. Do they want a specific toy to play with, or a treat? What if they have an internal injury but don’t know how to convey it? The possibilities are endless! Plus, the idea of sharing a mind with a happy pet sounds pretty awesome.

Best Thing Ever: Having pets as ice breakers at social events! Our four-legged friends love the attention, and almost everyone has a funny pet story to share. It’s simple, but effective. My favorite story is how my family dog, Fletch, stole a loaf of bread from the neighbors and gave it to me, bragging and wagging his tail.

Hidden Talent: I’m a silver-level competitive ballroom dancer. I’m also synesthetic, a phenomenon best explained as experiencing blending of the senses (i.e. visualizing color when listening to music)…I discovered this about myself a few months ago! I just assumed everyone listened to music the same way I do until I read “Musicophelia” by Oliver Sacks.

Life Philosophy: Accept help and opportunities with grace, be polite in the worst circumstances, and find your true form of expression.
