Hi, I'm Sheila Faricy.
I am the owner and operator of Bark Walkin’ n Meow Sittin’, Amelia Island, FL, which I started because of my true passion and love for all animals. I understand how it feels to leave your beloved companions behind, to go on business trips, to have leisure time for yourself, or to spend long hours at work. The separation is stressful for you and your pet. My mission is to provide you peace of mind while you’re away, and to provide your pets the loving care they deserve in their own environment. I work to build a relationship of trust with each pet owner, and to focus on pampering your pet just as if they were my very own.
I am a certified veterinary technician.
I am deaf, but wear a hearing aid and read lips. I can carry on perfect conversations with you as long as I can see your face. Emails and texting are excellent ways to communicate with me, as well as phone calls using Video Relay Service (VRS). VRS is a free service that enables a deaf or hard-of-hearing person to make and receive telephone calls through an American Sign Language interpreter using video phone or video conferencing equipment. You call the interpreter (904.468.3231) who will sign everything you say to me using a videophone. You speak to the interpreter as if you were speaking directly to me.
In my spare time I am a tennis buff, rescue scuba diver, certified CPR and First Aid instructor, lifeguard, lifeguard instructor, swimming instructor, and American Sign Language instructor.

“We have used Sheila's services many times... both short-term, and long-term overnight services for our two miniature Dachshunds Willie and Lucky. While we are out of town, Sheila provides us regular updates on them, and always gives great care. We feel very comfortable leaving them in Sheila's charge.”
Cathy & Charles T.
“Best dog sitter on Amelia! Sheila was so good to our very spoiled elderly, blind, puppy that we don't think he was all that happy to see us come home. She is the most caring and attentive sitter he has ever had and we highly recommend her. Bark walkin' n Meow Sittin' is the best!"
“Fitzgerald and Harrison love Sheila. I am very comfortable leaving town and knowing they are in good hands. Sheila goes the extra mile watching the house and loving on "the brothers". Sheila earns a 10+ in my book.”
“Very happy with this petsitter. My dogs were happy and healthy when I got back from my trip. Lots of walks and pictures. Great communication with me. Will use again and would highly recommend. Best petsitter in the entire world. The boys loved her.”

“My dog Max loves Sheila. When she stays with him in our home I don't even think he realizes we are away. I call it camp Sheila because she does fun things w him. Max has some stress issues that never manifest when we leave him with Sheila.”
