Hi, Im Loni, founder and owner of Whiskers and Leo Pet Care. I have been living in Hoboken, New Jersey since 2002, with my two kitties, Leo and Mya, and my adorable pup Valentino. In October, 2015 I married my amazing husband Theodore, and we just had our first child September 2, 2016, a boy named Alexander 🙂 I am originally from New York, earned a Bachelors Degree from Franklin & Marshall College in Pennsylvania, and then my Law Degree at Seton Hall in Newark, New Jersey. Before opening Whiskers and Leo in 2008, I was practicing law for four years in New York and New Jersey, but I realized that I was not being fulfilled in my career. Since I have always had a special place in my heart for animals (having owned dogs, cats, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and even a horse!), I decided to take the leap, and start my own business caring for animals! I couldn’t wait to combine my love of animals with my entrepreneurial and creative spirit! I truly can say I found what I love to do, which I am so grateful for. I take great joy in working with animals, loving them, and giving their owners the peace of mind they deserve! In addition, I took it one step further, and through Pet Sitters International, became a Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS)! I am fully devoted to giving my clients a great customer experience and amazing service!
