Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to hearing from you. Christina (Chrissy).
This was my first time hiring a cat sitter and I could not be more thrilled with Christina! She is so kind and caring and she communicated with me daily (including photos) to assure me that my cats were well taken care of and happy.
I would highly recommend hiring Christina to take care of your pets. She is wonderful!
Christina is absolutely the best! Very caring, on time, daily communication with pics and we never worry about our cats when Christina is caring for them.
