Getting To Know Me!

Hello! My name is Abby and I am the owner and operator of Five Star Critter Care. You have all met me at the Meet & Greet meeting we had when you initially hired me, but chances are that is the only time we have seen each other! My job is to be in your home caring for your pets when you are not there so I am sure it would be nice to know a little bit more about me so you feel more comfortable with me coming into your home. I can completely understand that, no one wants a stranger in their home.

I was born and raised in western, NY in a small city called Rochester. Growing up, I had a loving close knit family and of course pets! We had a Shih Tzu growing up named Ziggy and I had a little lizard named Tucker who I won at a carnival.

Even from a young age I have loved and worked with animals. I volunteered at the local zoo for several summers which provided me with fantastically unique experiences, being up close and personal to exotic animals including elephants, kangaroos, rhinos and alligators! I also, worked in a veterinary office and volunteered at local shelters over the years.

However, instead of going into an animal care career I decided to become a Geologist and for the last 10 years I worked at various oil companies which took me from Pittsburgh to Houston! Due to the downturn in the oilfield, I decided to take the opportunity to pursue my love of animals again and owning my own business has given me the opportunity to live where I want….so here I am in wonderful Colorado!

I have really enjoyed starting this business because it has allowed me to meet wonderful people like you and your pets. I enjoy walking into your home’s every day knowing that a little feisty cat is going to run up to me as if to say “where in the world have you been pet sitter lady!” or being met by an energetic pack of pups who are beyond excited for someone to give them love (and of course a yummy treat – or two!). I love being able to care for your pets and having you know without a doubt that the very best care is being given to your pets! I strive to make your pet sitting experience as stress free and as easy as possible.

I hope this gives you a little glimpse into who I am and you feel even more comfortable with me coming into your home. Please feel free to check out the About Us page  for further information about my business.
