I know how worrying it is to leave your pets behind for even a short period of time. I’ve been there, and have personally felt your anticipation and dread. I won’t be quite the same as you (because no one can fully replace pet parents!), but I pledge to do my very best so that your furry family members will get the reliable, honest and heartfelt care that they deserve. I have 100% five star reviews, because I only provide five star service and care!
With that said...
hello! My name is Anita (uhh-knit-tah) and I guess I’m a little bit of a crazy cat lady since I have three of my own (photos attached). I'd like to add that I also had bunnies in my early adult years and grew up around dogs, so I'm comfortable taking care of them all! I’d really like to be the person you can count on to look after your precious furry family while you’re away, so contact me today if you think I’m the right fit for your needs :)

Anita is fabulous and very caring. She has been taking care of my boys while I’m recovering from surgery and has gone above and beyond, even helping me with household items. She’s trustworthy, always on time and you can tell she genuinely loves her job. Thanks Anita!
Anita is a fabulous sitter. You can tell she loves her work as a pet sitter and she definitely has a magical touch with cats! My boy Binx who normally hides from everyone was out and about immediately to soak up the attention she gave him. I got daily pictures and messages which put my mind at ease while I was away. She’s a true gem!
