Hi! I'm Maggie Kalas...
I want to love and care for your pets when you can't be there!
Let me tell you a little about who I am. As you might have guessed, I'm an animal lover. Have been my entire life. Even though my mother was allergic to cats and dogs, I would sneak kittens into my bedroom and constantly beg to get a dog. As it turns out, for the more than 35 years, I've personally been a guardian for eight cats, eleven dogs, three birds, a few guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters, along with an assortment of amphibians, reptiles and fish. Not to mention being the one that friends and family turn to when in need with their pets.
I've lived in Northport since 1997. As a mom of two daughters, two step-sons, one hyper (but lovable) Lab mix and two cats (one now passed), the care of my loved ones continues to be my greatest joy (and yes, the occasional challenge). In my professional career, my diverse talents have led me to sales and marketing, technology, social media, web design, self-publishing, creative project management, personal and soul development. . . and now pet sitting.
My true passion is to be a light in the world, helping people maintain their balance and awaken to their full potential and wholeness through Reiki, Angel Therapy and Soul Light Coaching. Over the years, I've also worked with animals doing energy healing and soul support to aid them when they were recovering from illness, surgery or trauma.
So where does pet sitting come in. Well, pets are people too! I say that in the true sense that people love their pets like family. Much of their joy and well-being comes from the unconditional love they share with their animals. From my own experience and from what I see with other pet guardians, there is a bit of stress associated with leaving our pets alone, getting them cared for while at work, or what to do with them while on vacation. Pet guardians are very sensitive to the needs of their pets. And for some, leaving them in a kennel or with a neighbor is just not an option.
The light bulb went off to become a pet sitter when a friend asked me to watch her cats while she was out of town. It occurred to me that being a pet sitter was a natural extension of who I am and what I enjoy doing. I love animals and animals love me. I'm a compassionate caregiver. I love the outdoors and taking walks. And since my coaching practice is local in Northport and my schedule is flexible, I could also be a benefit and blessing to pets and their guardians right in my own neighborhood.
So there you have it. As your Northport Pet Sitting Angel, I will personally go to your home to love and care for your pets during those times when you are away from home.
Your pets will be happy. You will have peace of mind.
And I will be blessed, too!
