Best cat sitter ever! I was worried about being away from our very social cat while we were on vacation but Rebecca was amazing! I loved seeing all the pictures and videos everyday! So great knowing your baby is in great hands while you’re away! Rebecca went above and beyond while caring for our cat!

My dogs absolutely adore Casey and her children. She is so patient and does such a great job with all my furbabies. Even the most hardheaded ones. She always updates me and is always just a text away if I need anything while I’m gone. We will continue to book with her!!!

Caitlin showed nothing but kindness and professionalism during her visit with my puppy, Velvet. Her visit helped put my mind at ease during his first day home alone. She took care of him just as she would her own pets, and I would recommend her services to anyone!

Isa was punctual and took very good care of my dogs. The pictures were cute, and it looked as if they were having fun. Thanks. Yes, I would ask Isa to take care of my dogs again in the future.

Literally the best pet sitter we’ve ever had. Communication was super easy to set up our appointments and they took photos of our cat for us each visit. Our cat is spoiled and we appreciate everything !

Megan is the best! Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is caring and loving. My husband and I were very sad that we had to leave Guido and Charlotte behind, but knowing how well they would be taken care of and the love they would be showed, eased our sadness. Her home is set up perfectly, with a fenced in back yard. Every day Megan sent me pictures and videos. They had a wonderful time, and we will be asking Megan to take care of them again.

Alexis was very accommodating, fantastic overall! I felt comfortable right away when I met her and knew my three cats would be having a good time with her. I felt very comfortable leaving town, and having her in my home. She’s very proactive, and I knew anything that went awry or if she had questions she would contact me.

Helen is amazing. She took great care of our crew while we were away. Our dog can be pretty shy with new people and she immediately liked Helen :) Helen was incredibly dependable and understood what our dog needed in terms of her visits and walks. She even took the time to fill a food puzzle we left for our pup, which was greatly appreciated! I can't recommend her enough!!

About: (Cats only sitter!) My cat, Seven, and I would love to keep your cat company while you're away! For years there's been a stigma that cats are independent felines however, Seven, my friendly, charismatic tabby cat, has proven that wrong. I have 2 years of experience in cat care, including baths and grooming. Although my cat is an indoor cat, I keep cat car seats and strollers so they can truly feel a part of the family and participate in safe, outdoor experiences including walks on the trail. Feel free to bring your cat with a carrier and everything else will be provided by me! I'm free during the weekdays so your cat will have 24-hour care in my home and my cat as a playmate who is sprayed and updated on all her vaccinations. Please feel free to ask any questions and unleash the pawsitivity! I treat my cat like my child, and I will treat yours the same way! I plan to give my full attention to your cat and integrate them into our daily routine. Currently, I'm out of college for the summer but naturally wake up at 7 am, which is when I clean all the litter boxes and give breakfast. Throughout the day, they can have lots of downtime with treats and cuddles until you come back! My only cat, Seven, is 2 years old and updated on all vaccinations and sprayed. We love for her to feel like she's a part of the family and can free roam around the apartment and even have her cat room for alone time! All animals need time to warm up to new environments so we will intergrade your cat first and then allow her to meet Seven for the first (or second) time. If you have any special requests for care, let me know!

Amanda was AMAZING. I felt so comfortable every day I was gone knowing that she was giving my pup attentive care. She would keep me very informed and sent many pictures. She went above and beyond to keep my dog entertained and loved- from all the belly rubs to games of fetch to walks- Amanda covered it all. She was quick to reply, honest, sweet, flexible, and responsible. Will definitely book her again! Thank you Amanda!

Kelsie sent us pictures and did everything we asked her to do. Our female cat does not easily warm up to others, but Kelsie did not give up on her. There was one minor issue, but it was a miscommunication and easily resolved. We will use Kelsie again.

Katelyn loves animals. I remember her saying when I get my own place I will have a horse, but then it changed to a dog. She is very passionate about pets and how they are treated. I believe she would love and care for a pet in her charge as if was her own!

I’m so glad I scheduled Dominique last minute. She was so comforting and helpful to my dog who has extreme anxiety. She made sure to do everything she could to make him comfortable with her. She was constantly checking in with me and I loved that!

About: I've had and cared for many breeds of pets ever since I was in middle school, ranging from puppies to kittens to farm animals. Including the fur babies of my friends and family members. Taking care of animals has always been a passion of mine and it makes me happy to see them happy. ❤️ I'm currently working part-time so I'll have lots of time to give your pets all the lovin' and play time they need and wholeheartedly deserve. I have a pitbull in my home now who is enjoying his retirement with tennis balls and big sticks in the front yard. I had a beautiful cat for about 15 years before she crossed the rainbow bridge. ❤️
