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!

Laura took care of our two cats for more than 2 weeks over the Christmas holidays and it was a pleasure having her as our sitter! It was obvious that she took the time to stay and play with the cats as she was able to make friends with our very shy cat Buhta who would otherwise hide under the bed whenever somebody new enters the apartment. She took exquisite care with the cat's litter and food, cleaning the box and all containers thoroughly. I think the best evidence the cats were happy is that when we came back, our male cat has not peed anywhere - and usually he always does because he gets angry when we leave him with other people. As we often travel, for vacation and back to our home town and cannot get the cats with us each time - it's amazing to know we can have such a great sitter as Laura take care of our place, plants and, of course - the cats 💖
