My name is Lawana Quest, and I'm the Owner and Chief Critter Sitter, in charge of the crew and operations at Cat's Cradle Critter Sitter. (You can read about the rest of The Team further down this page :-).
If you're considering inviting me into your home to look after your pets, I thought you might like to know a little bit about me!
Animals are truly my life.
From the day I was born, I've had room in my heart for a special cat...
and this love continued throughout my childhood (Chi-Chi, with me for the first 15 years of my life!)
(Chi-Chi and Puccini - our "Italian-French Poodle"!)
I was the kid in the neighbourhood known for taking in the stray cats and rabbits (much to my parents' chagrin!), and catching the neighbours' dogs when they escaped and raced through the sub-division. I spent many hours after school hanging around Brighouse Pets in Richmond, and I later spent my adolescence pet-sitting for neighbours in my apartment complex.
I've never been without a cat or two (or three!) to love (Skunki, Thai, & Chiki)
(Ninja & Minx)
...and no, it's not just Siameses I love! (Whiskey, the acrobatic wonder...)
I've also shared my heart and home with dogs... (Thai and Maddie)
(It's a tough job, but someone has to keep the cat's feet warm!)
and horses... (Cherry and Teresa)
and birds... (Mandy, my Mom's Cockatoo, who was an absolute HOOT!)
Two very special cats in my life were Chiki and Pickens, who are still very dearly missed.
You can read more about Chiki and Pickens (and other treasured pets who have left this life to lie in the sun and chase bugs at the Rainbow Bridge) on the Memorials page...
CC, rescued from C.A.R.E.S. - was a gem...
Flash-forward to the present
in my "spare time", I enjoy volunteering and fundraising for L.A.P.S. - the Langley Animal Protection Society (who are always in need of volunteers and donations!) - as well as horseback riding, gardening, and reading. Best of all are the long walks in parks and woods, that I spend with my energetic and goofy Chocolate Lab, Libby (so-named 'cuz she's brown, and full of beans!).
Many years ago, I had an epiphany, and realized that, in order to truly be happy, I needed to "follow my bliss" - and my bliss is all about animals! I'm happiest when cuddling a cat or dog - any cat or dog: I cannot pass a cat without trying to persuade him to come to me for a little love (and I'm usually successful), and I'll always cross a street to pet a dog! As a matter of fact, I have a hard time going on vacation myself, because I miss my pets too much while I'm away...
So, after 17 years in the maintenance department at "a major Canadian airline", I made the decision to leave the insanity and stress, and to follow that bliss. In 2003, I went back to school to become a Veterinary Assistant, worked at an equine vet clinic for a year, then started my business in April 2005 - and I have never looked back!
Please rest assured that I will love your pets as if they're my own - and they will soon come to love me, too!
About the Team:
(For the record: all of our Pet-sitters are covered under the company's Liability Insurance and Bond, have passed criminal record checks, and are great people! :-)
Lorie grew up and went to school in the Langley/White Rock area, and has resided in Langley since 2003. She has had cats all her life, as well as horses and dogs in the past. Lorie spent a lot of time on her Grandparents' farm growing up around horses, cows, pigs, chickens and cats and dogs. Her Grandparents instilled their knowledge, respect and responsibility for all animals at a young age. She currently has 7 cats, all rescued, including one of the rescue's babies. Lorie volunteered and fostered in her home 12 sets of kittens and 3 pregnant mama cats, starting in 2014 with Langley Animal Protection Society. She also helps in a few of Langley's TNR projects, and helps feed a colony of 200 plus free-roaming feral cats through TinyKittens . Lorie is also part of a Snuggle Group at TinyKittens' Headquarters, that socializes and cares for kittens and cats, getting them ready for adoption. For the past fifteen years she has done a variety of cat, dog, horse and house sitting for family and friends, where she's become popular and in demand as a reliable, caring and favourite friend of many beloved pets. Lorie has phased out her bookkeeping business in order to follow her passion of caring, rescuing and finding homes for companion animals.
Lisa is a friend of mine from Richmond High School, and recently joined the Cat's Cradle team, specializing in dog-walks...
Lisa lives in Clayton Heights in Surrey, BC, with her rescue-doggy, Poppy, and her senior-kitty, Squeaky...
