Katey provided great care for our cat while we were away for the holidays. She cuddled and played with him to his heart’s content. She was on time every day and sent many pictures and updates to ease our minds. Definitely recommend!

Robert did a fantastic job watching my older cat. He was prompt and clear in all his communication and pleasant to work with. My cat takes daily medication and everything went smoothly. Would certainly have him cat sit again!

Eliot was so great with our pups! The care she provided and report card outlining her visit were great and reassured us that they were in excellent hands while we were away. She took the time to do a meet and great prior to her visit and paid attention to important dynamics between our two dogs. This was our first experience with Rover and we can’t recommend Eliot enough!

Lily was an absolute gem to work with and she took incredible care of our two cats. She kept us well updated and our babies seemed quite happy when we got home (a rarity, they typical hold a grudge for a bit) which gave us some peace of mind! Definitely recommend having her watch your fur babes.

About: From my own pets, to neighbors, to working at a kennel, I have spent much of my life caring for cats and dogs! I know how being away from your pet can cause you both anxiety, this doesn't have to be the case! Reliable, consistent, and conscious care right in your home. I currently work Monday through Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm. I am available after work hours Tuesday through Thursday, I work remote on Mondays and Fridays so am able to check on pets during and after hours. Saturdays and Sundays I am free! I am available for drop by visits, staying 1-3 hours, or overnight. I care for any pet as if they are my own, but more importantly, I want to ensure that my care is reaching your standards. I come right to your home to reduce any anxiety you or your pet may have. I will get to know your pets routine, needs, and quirks to ensure the smoothest experience!

Jessica watched my cats while I was away on a short trip and was an amazing sitter! She sent me lots of updates and pictures so I knew the kitties were in good hands - they were very happy to have some company and extra treats while we were gone 😊

About: I grew up volunteering at a dogsledding kennel and eventually started working at the summer camp that was run there. In my 5 years there I learned a lot about exercising, caring for, and training both Siberian and Alaskan huskies as well as the farm dogs there. I gained a lot of experience caring for dogs with medical issues, older dogs and training puppies. I currently work as a nanny/household manager for a family with a black lab and have been working alongside them to help train her in better manners, specifically around food. I also make sure that she is fed and exercised every day. I have a very flexible schedule in my current job, leaving me with time for pet care every morning until the early afternoon, and then again in the later evening. I also have availability to do overnights at the pet owner's residence both during the week and weeknights. I love to bond with pets and gain their trust. I make sure to read their signals and respect their boundaries while also respecting their owner's rules and boundaries. I'm very big on giving love and attention if dogs want it and taking them out to go on walks and get all their wiggles out. When in someone else's residence, I make sure to respect their space and their home.
