Maria is the best cat sitter I’ve ever had! She is trustworthy, responsible, caring, and so reliable! Her daily updates were very descriptive and made me feel so much better about being out of town, knowing my cat was in wonderful hands. I look forward to asking Maria to watch him again when we plan to go out of town next. Thank you for everything, Maria!

Thank you Kelsey, I really enjoyed spending time with Mister and hope to see him again soon.

Maria was amazing with our dog, Otto!! We could enjoy our beach vacation knowing he was happy & well taken care of! Maria sent lots of pictures and updates and was very quick to respond to us adding an additional visit! We will definitely be booking Maria again in the future :)

Thank you Liz, Otto is a cutie pie with such a cool little personality.

Passionate dog and cat lover.

Why board your babies when they can stay in their own environment where they feel safe and happy?

Although I only began my pet care business in January 2018, as a teenager I started pet sitting in the neighborhood and then moved into rescuing the neighborhood feline strays and finding them homes. In college I adopted my first cat, and have never been without cats since. Later I rescued a German Shepherd...the best dog ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if there is any training that I should be consistent with, what are their favorite activities, what you do for your fur babies during storms and other stressful times to calm him or her and if there any naughty habits that may take me by surprise. How does your fur baby interact with other fur babies and humans?

For overnight visits please let me know if you have made other arrangements for someone to visit your fur friends during the day while you are away; if not I can also do drop-in visits and/or walks throughout the day for an additional fee.

When Maria watches your pet

If you have a route that you prefer I will use that; otherwise we will explore the streets and paths around their home.

When I stay overnight I am with your fur friends for 12 hours. Please let me know if you have made other arrangements for someone to visit you fur friends during the day while you are away; if not I can also do mid-day drop-in visits and/or walks for an additional fee. The cost of overnight visits and a daytime visit combined for a single pet is comparable to boarding but your baby will enjoy the comforts and safety of an environment he or she is used to. The cost of boarding is typically much higher than a pet sitter with each additional pet.
