I recently had the pleasure of leaving my dogs in the care of Ednadine, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the experience. From the moment we met, it was clear that she genuinely loves animals and is highly skilled in caring for them. Ednadine went above and beyond to ensure my dogs were happy and healthy. She provided regular updates, including photos and videos, which gave me peace of mind while I was away. Her attention to detail and dedication to their well-being were evident in every interaction. My dogs absolutely adored her and were always excited to see her. Ednadine’s reliability, kindness, and professionalism make her the best pet sitter I’ve ever had. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy and caring pet sitter. Thank you, Ednadine, for your exceptional service!

We would absolutely recommend Louise & Carl as excellent cat sitters. They checked in on our three cats while we were on holiday for a week. One of them needed medicine given daily as he got sick while we were away, we are very grateful to Louise & Carl for taking care of Felix and the level of care was beyond our expectations. If we ever need cat sitters again, we’ll definitely be hoping that you are available! 5/5 service and communication, very trustworthy and genuine people. Thank you so much for looking after all our cats, I’m sure they’ll miss their evening treat deliveries!
