About Joseph Bianca
Joseph Bianca is proud and excited to provide professional pet sitting services to the Longview area in 2020 through his company Longview Pet Sitting, LLC. Prior to moving back to Texas and his hometown (LHS Class of 87), Joseph founded his first pet sitting company, Prospect Pet Sitting, LLC, in 2016 in Prospect near Louisville Kentucky. Since opening in 2016, Joseph built relationships with and cared for the furry children of many loyal clients.
Prior to starting Prospect Pet Sitting, LLC, Joseph spent more than 20 years in the fields of marketing, corporate training, human resources, healthcare administration and finance for organizations that include IKON Office Solutions, ADP TotalSource, South Miami Hospital, KentuckyOne Health and Bellarmine University. His education includes a BBA from the University of North Texas and a MBA from the University of Miami.
The decision to pursue a career outside the realm of the traditional corporate setting was fomented by a desire to combine a deep seated love of animals, skill and business ownership fostered initially by years of volunteer experience working with animals through the Humane Society as well as a number of public and private shelters, adoption agencies and pet care non-profit organizations. From this foundation Joseph has added a considerable amount of experience in both professional pet sitting and pet sitting management while caring for numerous companion animals.
Ultimately, Joseph’s pet care philosophy is based on the fact that his own pets are his furry children and accordingly, he has very high expectations when it comes to their care. The same expectations that drive him to love and care for your pets like they were his own are the essence of the concierge pet service model Joseph proudly brings to the greater Longview Area through Longview Pet Sitting, LLC.

Cats rarely meow when communicating with one another. Although felines talk to other felines utilizing body language, scent marking, purrs, chirps, hisses and growls, meows are pretty much reserved for communicating with people.
Since yoga with cats is becoming popular, it should not be surprising that yoga with dogs or dog yoga (also known as doga) is gaining in popularity as well.
Cat yoga. I know, it sounds like a joke. How can cats do yoga? Well, it’s not really cat yoga but rather yoga with cats.
What is normal cat behavior relative to our relationship with them as companion animals? How can we enrich the environment in which we cohabitate to make and keep them happier as well as deter them from exhibiting negative behaviors? An unhappy kitty makes for an unhappy family.
Have you ever had your cat knead your lap or belly like it is a piece of dough they are preparing to pop into the oven? You know, that bizarre cat quirk in which your cat as if in a trance, lifts one paw and then the other on a soft surface (you) over and over and over again. What’s up with that? Does it mean anything?
Realizing this is my third article in a row primarily related to dogs, I ask for your patience and understanding. Normally I do a much better job of balancing the different species upon which I write and promise to make amends soon. In the interim,
We love the dogs, cats and pocket pets we keep as companion animals. Their smells on the other hand are usually not so desirable.
Have you ever walked in on your dog to find a potty mess on the rug or a torn up pillow while they are cowering down low with big eyes, their head down and their tail between their legs? As humans we tend to believe this is an admission of guilt or an apology because our dog knows it has been bad. But is that true?
Do you have trouble relating to cats? Do you find them aloof and un-trainable? If so, don’t feel bad. Felines are beautiful, wonderful, mysterious creatures. Even as a professional pet sitter, I struggle far more in striving to understand cat psychology and behavior than I do dogs.
