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 a great cat sitter - quickly became friends and took care of our shy cat while we were away for 10 days. Was always available and responsive to our messages. Sent us photo and video reports every visit.
Anita was a wonderful cat sitter! Great communication, sending me videos and updates from each visit. She has a ton of expertise and experience with cats and it shows. I knew she was a good fit when my cat Tiki jumped right into her lap when she came for a meet and greet, and I left knowing he was in good hands. He clearly loved having her visit and play with him, and I will be booking her again the next time I go out of town. She is more than worth the amount she charges and I can’t recommend her highly enough!
