“Juliette did an absolutely amazing job with my two kittens. She showed them tons of affection and kept me updated with photos during my trip. Super responsible. Would 100% book again.”
“Have had Cheryl sit for our senior cat twice - for a weekend and also a longer trip - and both times felt totally at ease that she was being well taken care of. Cheryl provided detailed and timely updates and photos for each visit, and went above and beyond to assist when there was a minor plumbing issue while we were away. Could not recommend Cheryl more and glad to have found such a professional and reliable sitter!”
“Leanna looked after our cat during our 4 days away and he seemed quite happy and well cared for upon our return. His food area and litter box were tidy also. We highly recommend Leanna.”
“All my animals are in love with Charlotte. When she comes over to pet sit she sits on the floor and they all all gather around her. She is extremely gentle and loving with our cats, dogs, rabbits and hamsters. She brushes and grooms them and checks their ear and noses after they go outside. She is calm and patient and has won over even our shy rescue pup! She is extremely responsible and shows up on time for walks and pet sitting. I feel comfortable having her alone in our home with our pets. She is knowledgeable about pets and often has suggestions of things to try with them from her experience working with animals at her place of work or her studies. She is comfortable giving medications and tending to animals that are more frail or elderly as well as our more robust and energetic doggies. I foster rescues and Charlotte has helped with pregnant dogs and puppies. Charlotte is a delight and my animals and I highly recommend her!”
“We are so grateful to have had Alex visiting our cat Helix when we are away. He is so comfortable with her, and she keeps us informed and up to date about how he's doing. Thank you so much, Alex!!”
“Margaux had 6 fun hours with Kaelyn. Walks and snuggles. Thank you”
About: I have volunteered at an animal shelter for 6 years, and fell in love with it. I would take dogs on walks and read to them to soothe the stress of a shelter. Our pets need the utmost care, so I would love to take care of your pet! I am currently a full time student. I do take some online classes that allow me for more flexible hours. I am open to other hours and schedules. I will always try my best to serve you and your pet. I treat my dog as if she is my baby. I believe we should care about our pets as much as they care about us. Pets really understand us and even listen to us. Even though they may not speak like us it’s important to also tend to their needs.

“Alicia and Max did a great job taking care of our cats. We have 3 cats, 2 of which are kittens. It was no small tasks feeding and making sure they were ok while we were gone for the weekend and they were great! They followed our directions, sent us pictures, and made us feel at easy while we were away from our cats. They were also extremely communicative.”
“Vanessa was amazing with our dogs, so friendly and responsive, and she went above and beyond constantly. Highly recommend her!”
“Carmen is a natural caretaker. I've known her to be a loving sister (of 7!), daughter, and friend for over 10 years. She is also a cat mom, having rescued Cheo in New York. I remember her cat when he had just arrived: he was super anxious and untrusting. I got to visit her in her new SB home this week and was happy to see that her cat Cheo was looking healthy, calmer; even his fur was glowing. He's still a spooky cat (black with yellow eyes) and Carmen definitely nurtures his inner quirky by being playful yet respectful. Another thing, Carmen is an aunt, which is a superpower in and of itself. She's got about 6 nieces and nephews, all younger than 15. I love that I get to see her grow into an imaginative, loving, and responsible aunt.”
About: I have been taking care of dogs and sometimes cats for over 5 years now. I’ve had several of my own that i’ve taken care and have been a dog sitter/house sitter for friends and neighbors countless amount of times! I love love love all kinds of animals! I think one thing that sets me apart from others is, my step-mom is a vet and I have learned so much from her just about animals behaviors and I’m ok taking care of any type of animal no matter their behavior. I’ve lived with calm dogs/cats, stubborn dogs/cats, hyper dogs, dogs/cats that get overstimulated, etc. I have some really great experience and I’d love to take care of your pet! I currently work part time at a halloween store in downtown Santa Barbara, but unfortunately it is seasonal and ends in just a few weeks. I then only have a couple weeks in between the end of that job and when I go home for a few weeks for winter break, so I think dog/cat sitting and/or house sitting would be the best fit for me! I do go to school currently 2 days a week (monday & wednesday). I start at 8am and end my school day around 12:30pm. I’ve become very organized with my schedule and I know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to fitting things in and taking care of your pet definitely fits in! I have a cat right now and he is very docile. His name is Mac and he is an indoor cat. I currently live in an apartment so we keep in indoors to avoid him getting lost and confused. Given that I live in an apartments (with 4 other girls) my home will not be an option at the moment for clients to have me dog/cat sit, especially with my cat in the residence.
“Julia is great with cats! Would recommend for anyone looking for a cat sitter”
About: Being raised in a home with multiple dogs and cats, I have deeply enjoyed the role of care taking, playing, exercising, and cohabitating with animals. For the last fifteen years I have supported many friends and families in taking care of their pets. Due to graduate studies and apartment life, I do not have the joy of having an animal in my life and am hoping to support my studies with additional income while enjoying supporting animals and families. I look forward to meeting yours, supporting them, and you! I currently have a flexible schedule, as I work remotely four days a week. My ideal situation would be to establish a relationship where ongoing, consistent support can be available for both me and your pet/family! I am available for dog, cat, and house sitting, I have full overnight availability, and while I am not in a position to house your furry family members, I am available to come tend to them in your space. At this time, I am not available to bring animals to my home. I am, however, available to come tend to your furry family members at your home.
“Marrisa took amazing care of Marley! She is definitely an amazing person and sent lots of updates and photos. I felt super confident leaving him in her care! She even spent extra time during her visits. I highly highly recommend her!”
“Ryan took great care of my kitty. He is very engaging with play time and takes the most beautiful photos. I appreciate how communicative and thorough he is with daily updates.”
“Maia is a wonderful cat sitter. She has been taking care of my cat for two years. She’s a responsible care giver and follows directions to a T. I believe she can handle any cat related situations that might arise. I trust her implicitly.”
About: I have watched senior dogs that need lots of medical attention, and I have made sure to be on time with pills, food, and going outside. I also grew up with two amazing little dogs. I can do random drop ins or scheduled walks every week! I love being outside and especially with a furry friend so I will always make sure to bring dogs on the best walk. I make sure to set my schedule around the pet, in case t they need special treatment or any needs of theirs can be attended to.
About: I’ve grown up with all kinds of dogs my whole life, attending to each different breeds needs. I walked dogs as my first job and continued to watch them into my teenage years. I’m currently an online student so I spend a lot of time at home studying. This makes my availability really flexible to be able to walk, play and board dogs from my home! My home is super dog friendly, with valuables out of reach, comfy couches the dogs are welcome on and it’s a one story so I know where the dogs are at all times.
“Grace was awesome! Super communicative and flexible, definitely went above and beyond in her care. Thanks again!”
“Aaron has been helping us out with our two dogs for years now. He does a great job, the girls absolutely love him and we especially love his professionalism. He’s always on time, goes above and beyond to make the girls feel loved and gives us fun updates so we know they’re being loved. We’ve even had Aaron dog sit overnight a few times and the girls love it! Thanks Aaron!”
