We were fortunate to find Holly as our pet sitter and cannot recommend their services highly enough! Leaving our beloved furry family member in someone else's care can be nerve-wracking, but Holly immediately put our worries to rest. Her professionalism and genuine love for animals were evident from the start. During our absence, Holly provided exceptional care to our pet. Daily updates and photos reassured us that our pets were in good hands. Moreover, Holly's reliability and communication skills were exceptional. She was always prompt in responding to any inquiries and flexible with scheduling. We're incredibly grateful for Holly's dedication and care and wouldn't hesitate to entrust our pet's care to them again in the future. Thank you, Holly for your exceptional service and genuine love for animals!

Rosalie is an excellent pet sitter and I would recommend her to anyone. This was my first time leaving my cat at home for an extended period of time, and I was nervous, but after meeting Rosalie for the first time I felt like my cat Millie was in safe hands. Rosalie visited 2 times per day for 30 minutes each visit. Each time she visited she sent me a message or a photo, sometimes both! I loved receiving these. My cat has medicine once per day and Rosalie administered this with no issues. Getting a pet sitter is more expensive than a cattery, but the stress that it saved both me and my cat was 1000% worth it. Thank you so much Rosalie for allowing me to enjoy my holiday without worrying about Millie!
