Beatrice took care of our two cats and four frogs while we were away on a long weekend. She was a pleasure, a great caregiver, and will surely be our go-to pet sitter in the future. We have only ever had friends pet sit before, and had some misgivings about putting our pets - an anxious cat that doesn’t trust strangers, a young ball of energy that has to be kept away from the senior, and four exotic frogs - in the care of a stranger. But when Beatrice visited us to meet the pets, Tofu was instantly curious and even Mela, the grumpy senior, wasn’t too spooked. Beatrice heard out all of our pet care instructions and repeated them perfectly to make sure she got them right, instantly building trust. She let us know when she’d be over, for how long, and how she would communicate updates and photos of the pets. All pets were in excellent state and humor when we returned. We were sure it would be so - we got timely, wonderful updates with pictures and notes on their state. Even the frogs - an animal that most pet sitters don’t have experience with - were happy and content! A huge thank you to Beatrice for the excellent care, and we really do plan on booking you for future trips!

Sandra is an amazing cat sitter and we will definitely use her services again and again :) She took such great care of our cats. They seemed to be really happy and didn’t miss us that badly. Sandra is a beautiful soul. She loved our cats, took great care of them and followed all the instructions we had given her before. She played with our cats the way they like to be played with and successfully find an unique approach to both of them (they have totally different characters and needs). She was really enjoying the time with our cats and has always provided us with photos, videos and voicemails during our absence. We totally recommend Sandra!
