Carla was wonderful with our dog and cat. Our elderly cat, Ellie, was in her final stages of life, but we felt comfortable leaving her with Carla, who updated us daily, or more, on her declining health. Unfortunately, we said goodbye to Ellie the day we got home. But, we're glad she was with such a caring person her final week of life. We would enthusiastically recommend Carla as your pet sitter.

Jackie was AMAZING with our shy guy. We had to be away for a few days, and she house sat for us. When we returned, we found that our pup had fallen in love! We are all looking forward to the next time we can book with Jackie!

About: I love all animals! I grew up with dogs. Some of them have even grown up with me. I have experience with dogs, cats, pigs, birds, fish, and reptiles. I’m currently working a few part-time jobs but can usually make time to care for your pets. I’m flexible with price as well. Especially if you’re close. Message me and let’s figure out what works for both of us. I am currently only accepting walks and check-ins at the pet owners' homes as I am not allowed pets at my apartment. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Andrew was excellent -- consistently communicative and thoughtful in his approach to pet/housesitting for our cat over the holiday weekend, especially with regards to making sure all was correct with a complex petcare routine! We would highly recommend Andrew and will definitely book with him again for future trips away.
