If you are looking for a pet sitter or dog walker, look no further! Leslie & Cat are two of the kindest, most compassionate humans, and they took the best possible care of our two cats while we were away for 8 days. We have used a handful of cat sitters before, but Leslie & Cat’s professionalism, communication and level of care were above and beyond all others. We have never felt so comfortable or trusting as we did when relying on Leslie & Cat to come by our home daily. Our cats (especially our shy Ollie) bonded with them right away and looked forward to their visits - this was clear from their expressions in all of the photos that Leslie sent each day. We rate them 11/10 and are so grateful to have finally found a trusted cat sitter.

Anna is an incredible pet sitter! She cared for my 2 cats when I was away for a few days around Christmas. She sent lots of updates and even decorated a photo of my cats for the holidays and sent it to me. I was beyond satisfied with Anna’s care of my cats. When I got the picture of them decorated for Christmas I showed my whole family and they were shocked to see how she would go above and beyond to make me feel like even they were having a great holiday. Will definitely hire Anna again! she is extremely detail oriented and knows animals really well. On the first visit they had both taken to sitting on her lap at the same time! That is incredible considering my one cat is very timid. I could go on and on but really, if you are looking for a cat or pet sitter- LOOK NO FURTHER, ANNA IS HERE!
