I had to leave town for a week and had the pleasure of having a pet sitter take care of my three beloved cats while I was away for over a week. Her name is Tanya and she was absolutely incredible! She arrived promptly on time each day and prepared plenty of food and water. Tanya agreed to take care of my cats at my house and take care of things while I was away. I knew that I could trust her. She also helped with four tropical plants that require a lot of attention. For those in the same situation I was in, I would encourage you to consider Tanya as your pet sitter.

Trish is amazing! Such a pleasure to engage with, very quick in her responses, extremely knowledgeable of cats, their care and behavior, ensuring clarity on the instructions we left, and going far beyond what is expected from a sitter. She took care of our 2 cats for a weekend. They are both very shy from strangers and we didn't expect she would get to see them at all -likely both hiding under a bed the whole time as usual when visitors come over-, to our surprise both came out to greet her and allowed her to pet them from visit #1. A true cat-whisperer! Knowing they might not come out she had initially suggested feeding them after taking care of the rest of the tasks we asked her for, just to make sure they would eat their food as fresh as possible. She communicated often, and on the last day checked in to make sure we were coming back as planned, just in case we needed extra help and to ensure the cats had their next meal and care. We have had great experience with other sitters, but this level of care and love for animals is a treasure! For us it took away any bit of stress there is always there when leaving your pets, a part of the family, with a new person. There is no question we will put our cats and home on her hands next time we need support. Thanks Trish!
