Hi, my name is Jane Winston, and I am owner of Paws-itively Purr-fect In-Home Pet Sitting.  I live in Miami with my Irish Setter, Kirby, and my Cocker Spaniel, Kayle. I believe I have the greatest job on Earth. I mean how can you beat the day after day joy and enthusiasm with which I am greeted at the door?

So how was it that I was led to become a full-time pet sitting professional. After over 20 years as an Administrator at the American Psychological Association in Washington, DC, I fought my second battle with a life-threatening disease. Needless to say, this got my attention. I began to reassess my life. It occurred to me that life was too short to be cold.

Moving to Miami…

So, I sold my apartment, packed up all my belongings, and I moved to Miami (I had gone to the University of Miami years earlier and always knew that at some point I would move back). At first, I began looking for another professional position, but nothing seemed to be the right fit. Then one day my best friend, Sue, said, “Jane, you love animals and have such an affinity with them, why don’t you earn money pet sitting?”

Starting My Business…

Well I always had been the person who neighbors, friends, and family members had relied upon to watch their pets when they traveled, and I really enjoyed doing it; and I had been a veterinary assistant as well as a volunteer for the Humane Society. So I took her advice and in 1999 began pet sitting on a part-time basis and continued to do so for the next two years. Then my same friend, Sue, posed the question “Have you considered pet sitting full time?” So 14+ years ago, in 2001, I established my own 7-day-a-week, 365-day-a-year pet sitting service.

And That Brings Us To Today…
