ABOUT US:
Creature Comfort is considered a small pet sitting company, and we want to stay that way!  We know all of our sitters and clients well and work hard to make good matches between them.

We use independent contractors rather than employees, which means you are working to satisfy our human and animal clients, not management.  It also means your schedule can be very flexible, though if you don't work, you don't get paid!  You can always communicate your likes and dislikes to us and ask for more or less work.  That said, if we can, we would like to assign a specific group of pets to your care.  Pay is on a per job basis.

If this appeals to you, continue you on and tell us...
