Staff Writeramandawaters@minthilltimes.com
Since 2006, Mint Hill residents and others in the Charlotte area have placed their pets in the hands of professional pet sitters through Carolinas Critter Sitters, whose motto is “come home to happy.”  This company is licensed, insured, and certified to take care of all kinds of pets, from fancy rats to Great Danes in the comfort of their own homes.
Owner Jennifer Rust started the company after an 11-year career in Human Resources.  She wanted to get away from office politics, so she cashed out her 401k and started pet sitting.  She was already taking care of her six dogs and eight cats, and she received a great referral from her veterinarian.  After posting flyers and networking, she reached 100 customers in the first 10 months.
