Magic is just that. Magic!! I had the pleasure of working with Magic within the last year of my cat's life. At 18 my Leroy was deaf and could be very needy.

I have used Magic's pet sitting, boarding and dog walking services since the beginning of July 2007. My dog, Sebastian, loves her and is always excited to see her.
