I entrusted my beloved cat Gosha to the care of Ilgin for a period of 10 days, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience. Ilgin’s attentiveness, care, and professionalism truly exceeded my expectations. Throughout Gosha’s stay, Ilgin ensured that he was not only fed properly but also showered with attention and affection. Her commitment to his well-being was evident in the daily updates she provided, complete with photos and videos that brought great comfort to me while I was away. Ilgin’s dedication to her role as a pet sitter was evident in every interaction. She went above and beyond to cater to Gosha’s needs and ensure his comfort and happiness. Her genuine love for animals shone through in her interactions with him. I am incredibly grateful to Ilgin for providing such excellent care to Gosha during my absence. Her professionalism, reliability, and genuine love for animals make her an outstanding choice for anyone seeking a trustworthy pet sitter. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone in need of pet care, and I look forward to entrusting Gosha to her care again in the future. Thank you, Ilgin, for your exceptional service!

Jazmyne was a great cat sitter for my two cats during the booked two and half weeks. This is probably my 10th time I hire a cat sitter and I can say that she is one of the top sitters I hired. She was very responsive and accurate in her communication any time I messaged her. She used to send me pictures of my cats daily and made sure everything she used was clean when she left. She took care of the food, litter box, playing with the cats, brushing the cats and followed all instructions.
