Susan M.

Pet Sitter Extrodinare

Hi Susan!

Susan lived my teenage years in Singapore and Malaysia where I developed my love of animals surrounded by our dogs including my Great Dane, cats , rabbits and parakeets  . After my professional ballet career I returned to SB in 97 to teach ballet and started pet sitting for friends and family. Most recently I’ve been enjoying cat sitting with SB Petsitters . There’s been an amazing variety of cats with such personalities I’ve become very fond and attached to. I connect with them through play, massages , brushing them and bringing them catnip from my garden. I’ve also developed a passion for cat photography and try capturing their faces in photos for their owners. After caring for a friend’s cat who was distressed without his family I was able to calm him until they returned and was amused when my friend nicknamed me “the cat whisperer.”
At home I have a 14 yr old Aegean cat named Bobo who I spoil as much as possible. He returned from a harrowing episode at the ER recently and I feel because of my perseverance he escaped and survived a bad prognosis. I feel caregiving is in my nature and I will always go the extra mile and never give up.

Brooke L.

Pet Sitter/ Dog Walker/ Entrprenuer/ Event Specialist

Meet Brooke Lyn L. Always a New Yorker at heart, but officially a Santa Barbara girl, and forever an animal lover. 

Animals have always been her happy place, but it was when she was 13 that she began working for her neighbor as a vetenarians assistant. Her career working with animals continued to grow as she grew. Now, nearly two decades later, there’s nothing she feels she can’t do… except feed a mouse to a snake.

When she’s not traveling the world or making animals happy, she’s on stage doing stand up comedy making people laugh. 

She’s excited to be a part of the team and to continue to do more of what she loves!
