Ajna was so great with our cat Jeff, we can tell how quickly he took to her! We loved getting the photo updates, and Ajna was always on time. We even found that she had taken inside some unexpected package deliveries while we were away! We so appreciate that Ajna was able to look after Jeff over the holidays

Crystal was AMAZING! She sent super detailed visit notes every day and lots of pictures, and my cat clearly loved her. He is on the older side and has some medical issues and Crystal was super responsive and great at monitoring those. Also a fantastic house/plant sitter as well, all my plants are happy and my mailbox wasn’t absolutely stuffed after a few weeks away ?

We were so pleased with the care our rather old, rather shy cat received from Crispin. And, to my amazement-the kitty area was as clean as I left it. Crispin, both kitty and I thank you!

Devon takes such loving care of my Swiss mountain dog and pug. I trust her to take them on any type of adventure, and know that she’ll keep a watchful eye while also giving them the freedom to enjoy the world. She is always on time and takes her role as a caregiver seriously. Her passion for animals is extremely evident, and her calm demeanor makes everyone feel safe and respected.

Alex is my go to person for cat sitting in Santa Barbara, we first met in 2019 and I kept coming back to her and it has been multiple times. My little one (a big maine coon though) is super shy and always try to hide from human. But Alex has some magic power somehow and my coon shows up for her every single time. Alex remembers all the tiny details from day 1, and she always sends me updates and pics multiple times per day, never missed one. I highly recommend Alex if you are looking for a reliable cat sitter.

I can recommend Carolyn highly. I trusted her with the key to my house so she could come in and care for my cat while I was away. Carolyn not only fed Cutie (the cat) regularly, she spent time with her to keep her from being too lonely and bored indoors. I also know Carolyn undertook to raise a Comfort Dog for a local organization. Carolyn had a particularly rambunctious animal, but she "whispered" the animal into well-socialized behavior. She seems to have a particular kindness and appeal to animals.

Krysta is an expert in her field and definitely my top choice when caring for my boy Louie. A few weekends ago my husband and I were going out of town and needed a sitter for two nights-mainly to drop in to feed and play with him. I have a ring door bell, so I'd see her come in and out and she was so punctual. Louie loves Krysta, sometimes with strangers he goes straight under the bed, but as soon as she walked in he was rubbing against her leg fully trusting in her. She made sure my boy was fed, pet, and loved for the weekend and I'm so grateful! Will definitely be using her again ASAP :)

Bella is such a caring dog walker. She was patient with our dogs while they got used to her. Now they get so excited when they see her. She goes above and beyond to ensure the dogs have a fun time. She truly cares for our dogs. We would highly recommend her as a dog walker/sitter.

Natalie is great! I've had her for longer stays at my apartment and shorter check ins for quick trips and always came back to a full food bowl, clean litter box and a very happy cat. She always sends me updates and pictures to let me know how things were going and is quick to let me know of any issues. 10/10 would recommend for sure!

I cannot praise Matthew enough. He is the perfect house and dog sitter. He was just wonderful with our dog, who is a rescue and takes some time to get used to new people. He did things with her that we seldom do, she misses him for sure. He was taking care of the house and going the extra mile to do more than the basics we asked for. Matt is so pleasant and good company that we actually invited him to stay beyond the time we were away, as he was also great with our teenage boys. The problem with Matthew is you just don't want him to leave!

About: I grew up around animals and used to volunteer at my local Veterinary Clinic. I have a lot of experience walking dogs, making meals, bathing pets, and absolutely love spending time with animals of any kind. I used to also house sit for my neighbors and watch their cats, dogs, and guinea pigs when they were out of time. I am a college student at UCSB double majoring in Film and Psychology. I have plenty of time during the day or at night to spend time with your pets and get to know them! I have a big open living room and can provide a crate in my home. I am also comfortable adapting to any routines or methods in your home that your pet is familiar with.

About: I am a big cat person and have been rescuing/adopting them my whole life, I’ve bottle fed, potty trained, and raised multiple kittens. I currently have 6 rescues at my mom’s house back in Washington and I miss them very dearly. I’ve even trained some of them to sit, spin around and play fetch for a treat:) Cat sitting is preferred but I love all animals! I’ve been around dogs since I was around 12 years old. I have a mini Australian Shepard, who I have trained to sit, stay, fetch, shake, and heel. I took her on 1-2 walks a day and gave her the extra attention she needs, she loves cuddling and playing tug of war. I have open availability to walk and feed dogs, play with and feed and pet cats, and any other pet sitting needs you have ! I keep a calm, caring, and playful environment for the animals, making sure they feel loved and attended to. I can adjust to the personalities of the animals and their specific needs
