Jenevieve was fantastic and helped on short notice and did a fabulous job. She helped reassure that Albert was taken care of! I’d highly recommend her.

This is my second time having Andrea and she is great! She remembered specifics about the kitties and always takes the best pictures of them so I don’t miss them too much. Thanks Andrea!

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

Lisa was fantastic with our kitties! We came home to two very happy and well-cared cats. Prior to booking, Lisa met us and our cats at our apartment and was very attentive to us describe our cats routines and behaviors. During the booking Lisa provided detailed updates and pictures from her drop-ins to leave our minds at ease while we were gone for the holidays. We highly recommend her for any of your cat-sitting needs and will definitely be using Lisa again for future drop-in needs for our cats!

Chelsie did a fabulous job watching over Bowdette. She is very shy, but Chelsie was able to get her to come out and play. Chelsie will be my go to person anytime I need Bowdette taken care of while I am away!!!

Jaden loves animals and had had his own dog for 14 years, he cared for him very deeply. His responsibilities have included feeding, exercising, administering medications and providing companionship. He bonds well with animals and has great communication skills. I would recommend Jaden as a pet caregiver to anyone seeking a responsible, knowledgeable and compassionate individual to look after their beloved pets.

Stephanie was very good about keeping us informed. We got pictures, some of which are hilarious. Personally, I didn't believe her when she said TomTom missed us, but he sure was vocal when we came home! And it was all happy noises. Thanks!
