Linda Ayres, Owner of Otterear Pet Care

I have been owned by animals all my life starting at age 1 with a big cat named Fluffy. My life is not complete unless I have a few four legged friends. My love of animals and their care is very important to me. I have had several cats and 2 dogs in my lifetime. I have also owned and raised fish, birds, turtles, gerbils, hamsters, mice and a few geckos.I have many books on caring for cats and dogs  which are my guidebooks for caring and recognizing potential problems. My dogs and I have been to school for basic training, and advanced training Training is a ‘work in process’ and ongoing.


I currently have 4 cats and one dog.
I would care for your pets as if they were my own. I know I  want a pet sitter I can trust and feel good about. I want you to feel confident and reassured  your pets and your home are safe and secured. Communication is very important between my clients and myself. I am licensed,bonded, and insured by Pet Sitters Associates, LLC. I have been trained Pet CPR and First Aid of PetTech, Inc. 2011. I have volunteered at Kitty Harbor in West Seattle for several years. In 2014, I started volunteering at Seattle Area Feline Rescue (SAFR) in Shoreline til 2015.

I do offer Daily texts, emails, photos of your pets while in my care.
