Whom does a professional pet sitter trust to look after her cat but another professional pet sitter like Carla? Carla and I have been pet sitting colleagues for the past several years with filling in for each other and passing along booking requests that the other can't take on. My own clients have expressed to me that they've been pleased with Carla's services when she's filled in for me, and I knew that Carla would provide that same excellent standard of care to my cat, Tom, while I was away. Carla got Tom, a normally shy kitty around new people, to come out and play laser pointer with her several times. He did really well with Carla, and I will always check with Carla first to see if she's available when I need pet sitting care for Tom.

Kate and Rimas were great cat sitters. They responded quickly after the first request to book and gave us constant communication while they were taking care of our cat. Not only did they follow the directions we set for feeding/caring of the pet, were also conscientious of our home and made sure the cat food dishes were cleaned and that scooped litter was removed. They also played with our cat and sent plenty of pictures of her when were away which was greatly appreciated. We would not hesitate to book Kate and Rimas again and gladly recommend them to anyone needing a pet sitter in the area.
