“Ruth was great and we will definitely use her again in the future for our kitties. Super nice, consistent, we could tell Loki enjoyed his time with her from the pictures she sent. We had a tire go flat just as we were traveling back and Ruth was able to accommodate another drop in which we SO appreciated. Thank you Ruth!”
“I recently had the pleasure of having Sarah take care of my beloved feline companion, and I am thrilled to share my experience. Sarah is an exceptional cat sitter who provided the utmost care and attention to my furry friend. Right from the start, Sarah demonstrated her deep understanding and love for cats. She took the time to understand my cat's unique personality, preferences, and routine, ensuring a smooth transition and comfortable environment for my feline friend. Her gentle and patient approach immediately won over my cat's trust. Throughout the cat-sitting period, Sarah provided regular updates, which included pictures and detailed descriptions of their activities. It was evident that Sarah not only fulfilled my cat's basic needs but also engaged in interactive play and quality bonding time. My cat looked content and relaxed in every photo, which put my mind at ease during my time away. Sarah's attention to detail was truly remarkable. She ensured that my cat's feeding schedule was followed precisely, and she also went the extra mile to clean the litter box regularly, maintaining a fresh and hygienic environment. I could tell that Sarah genuinely cared for my cat's well-being and happiness. One aspect that truly impressed me was Sarah's reliability and professionalism. She was prompt and responsible in her communication, making the entire process stress-free. Sarah was also flexible and accommodating, making sure to accommodate my specific requests and preferences. Her commitment to providing exceptional service set her apart from other cat sitters. I wholeheartedly recommend Sarah to anyone seeking a dedicated and trustworthy cat sitter. Her love for cats, attention to detail, and reliability make her an absolute gem. I am grateful to have found Sarah, and I know that my cat is in the best hands when I'm away. Thank you, Sarah, for your outstanding care and devotion to my furry friend!”
“Kim is our official "cat whisperer"! We have some very 'special' cats--they are wonderful furry family members but they are very attached to us, which does not always translate to new folks. They ALL took to Kim like she was here forever, even the most-shy guy of the group. She had them purring and waiting for her by the door! In addition to her amazing feline care skills, she also took excellent care of our home inside and out (brought in packages from the porch, gathered up the mail, rescued plants from gale-force winds, brought around the trash bins) and was so wonderful to send us updates at every visit with photos. We cannot wait to leave home again just so we can call Kim to sit for our crazy feline crew. Love her, many paws up!”
“Melissa has checked in on our Pup multiple times this summer. She is very reliable, communicative, and caring. She always lets us know when she's on the way, stays the full time, and sends lots of pics. I would definitely recommend her for any pet sitting services.”
“Absolutely wonderful! Every picture Digby was happy as a clam and when I returned I could tell he had a great time. I cannot recommend Casey enough!”
“Sarah is a wonderful sitter! She is very communicative, great with giving our picky cat his medications, and takes great care of him. We've already booked her again for future dates :)”
“Devon was great with my kitten with very prompt check-ins. He also provided pictures and plenty of details for each visit. My kitten appeared to enjoy spending time with Devon and he appeared to enjoy interacting with her. Would highly recommend.”
“Valerie watched our dogs this weekend and did a wonderful job. I have a very old Chinese Crested who needs some special attention and she cared for him perfectly. Both dogs and the cat were happy and healthy when we came home. Honestly, she spent a lot of time caring for them and petting them so they wouldn’t miss us while we were gone. I will absolutely use her again!”
“Francesca was amazing with our cats while we were away on our honeymoon! Every day we received an extremely detailed update along with a slew of photos of our babies - this helped us to feel calm and relaxed while we were away as we never leave our kitties for long periods of time. We left detailed instructions and she followed everything to a T, and our kitties felt so comfortable towards the end of the week with her! We will definitely only use Francesca from here on out if we go away again, so happy we have someone we can trust! Thank you again!!!”
“Whitney did a great job with my pup, she is caring and reliable. She sent me lots of pictures :) and will watch my pets next time I am out of town.”
About: I've had dogs and cats my whole life. I treat every pet and home exactly the way I would I treat my own, exceptionally and with care. I am a home heathcare provider in the mornings, and have the free time in the afternoon and have the experience to help others with their pets Whatever care you need for your pet I am willing to provide. I am proud to say that I have 2 pets in my home that are very happy and well provided for. I understand the commitment involved in being a pet parent and am willing to supplement care in order to provide the best home environment that we together can give your pet.
“Mo was great. Did a meet and greet- our dog is anxious and we had no problems during the meet and greet and she sent us many pictures about the drop in visit. Would recommend her and will use her again”
“Great sitter!! Kind and dependable. Walked the dog through Tropical Storm Ophelia!!”
“I used Taylor to look in on our Cat Huckle for a week and she did a fantastic job! We will absolutely reach out to Taylor again for our pet sitting needs!”
“Mel has been coming in for our dog during the week while we are at work. She always lets us know how her visits went, and always cares for our dog! She goes the extra mile to make sure that even when it is raining, our dog still gets his play time, and that he doesn’t drag mud into the house when he comes back in.”
About: I am comfortable with all forms of cat care. I have been around cats all my life, volunteered for community TNR programs, and am currently owned by two fluffy felines named Gohan and Melody. One of my cats is special needs (ataxia) so I am familiar with medications, grooming, clean ups, and other needs for special kitties. I also have a young, high energy border collie mix who loves toys and daily walks. He typically does well with other dogs and puppies, especially ones that can run faster than him! He is also great around cats. I work from home full-time. My schedule is very flexible. I spend all day every day with my pets. I play with my dog throughout the day (he is a big fan of hallway fetch) and walk him every day for 30 minutes to an hour. He goes on potty breaks whenever he wants. I live in a quiet neighborhood and my vet is less than a mile away. For drop-ins: GENERAL: I will spend time doing whatever makes your animal comfortable. If that means pets, play, snuggles, or glaring at me from under a bed, then that’s fine with me. I am happy to send updates and/or pictures. GROOMING: I do not provide bathing or grooming services but am happy to brush your cat or dog for free, just let me know! MEDS: I am comfortable giving medications (oral, topical, otic, etc I do them all). WALKS: I am happy to walk your dog if it is sufficiently leash trained! I like to play Pokémon GO while I walk dogs. If your dog needs a long walk I can do that before 9 or after 5. PLANTS: I will water your plants (for free ofc) if you ask. OTHER PETS: Wish this app had a setting for pets besides of cats and dogs! I am a biologist so am comfortable caring for pretty much all small “exotics” (e.g., rodents, reptiles, fish, birds). Except for bugs. Like, I’ll feed your lizard a cricket or grub but I won’t go anywhere near your tarantula (sorry—I do deeply respect bugs, just from a distance). Just message me if you want care for an exotic pet and we can discuss. For boarding, see below: HOUSE: I have a very small fenced in backyard for potty breaks. There is a paved walking trail behind my house for walks. The house has three floors accessible by stairs and lots of space. I have two cats and one dog: CATS: My cats prefer to free roam the house but all their stuff (i.e., litter box, food) is on the ground floor and I can keep them separated with a door and a baby gate. They are shy and take a long time to adjust to new animals, so overnight guests will not have access to the ground floor where the cats are. I have an extra litter box so don’t worry about bringing one unless you want to. If your cat is anxious I have a whole guest room they can have to themselves during their stay. DOGS: My dog is cat and dog friendly. He is 3 years old and is neutered. He is a very high energy dog and likes to play with toys. If the dogs do not get along, I have baby gates and several extra rooms to keep them separate. My dog does not use a crate but I have space for one if needed. I have tons of toys and treats here, but consider sending your dog with their favorite toys :) NOTE: If your dog is extremely cat aggressive it is best to consider another sitter. I typically do not have issues keeping the cats separated, but my house is filled with cat scent and that can be overwhelming for some dogs.
“I think Chris would very good at taking care of animals.he is very caring and loves animals. He loves to take walks with his children and would like to take a dog with them”
“Wonderful as always!!”
“Kristin was wonderful! Dependable, friendly & kept me updated- a huge relief especially when we were trying to relax on a much needed vacation. Will definitely be utilizing her again & again.”
“Kristy has been doing drop-in visits daily with our puppy for the past month and a half and we couldn’t ask for more. She is flexible and dependable and gives us peace of mind knowing our puppy is well taken care of while we’re are at work. Kristy sends a detailed summary of her visit and a couple of pictures every time which is great! We can tell she truly cares for our pup and enjoys what she does. Thanks Kristy!!”
