About Jan


Jill, Princess the Rescued Wonder Dog, and Jan in the Eastern Sierras ca. 1968


I grew up in Yorba Linda, California, in an idyllic era.  Rural and unspoiled, even for populous Orange County, everyone had numerous pets and livestock.  We were never without multiple dogs and Princess, pictured above, was rescued when I was three months old.  More than once I was given chicks and ducklings as birthday presents giving my L.A.P.D. Dad the opportunity to built coops and teach us how to take care of “the girls.”  Add to that cats, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, pigeons, and a horse with the unsettling moniker of “Spooky” because he frequently bolted for no apparent reason, and that was life in Yorba Linda in the 60’s and 70’s.

Tuolumne County has been my home for over 30 years. I hold a B.A. in Liberal Studies from C.S.U. Chico with an Education/Creative Writing emphasis yet pet care is my passion (although I still write and your pet may be in the book).  I am the mother of seven indoor rescue cats, Nana to three grandchildren, and Auntie Jan to my extended family’s and friends’ dogs, cats, and chickens (and a few human children too).  I will treat your fur children the same love and care I lavish on mine.

  1. I am super, super picky about my pets and I completely trust Jan to watch them. She knows their needs and can follow instructions done to the letter. I would not recommend her if I did not have complete confidence. And I have one of those feeding instructions…this one gets this Rx & that one gets that Rx and this one can eat anything.
