Alexandra took care for my two cats and everything went better than expected✨ Since the first meeting with here, the communication was great, she showed interest in every single details of my cats. Even during the cat sitting, communication with her was really good, and she was really careful about some important topics that i had specifically for my cats, making sure that everything was as it should. Both of my cats have different personalities, different types of feedings and Alexandra was really adopted since the first visit, which surprised me a lot because one of my cats needs a lot of time with strangers, but with Alexandra they were best mates since the first visits. What i really liked too, is that i found my apartment as I left it, the cats plates and the area around the cats litter was cleaned. And my flowers were taken good care too. I am very happy that I meet someone that can take care of my cats in my absence, and I really recommend Alexandra for cat sitting ✨🫶🏻

We hired Gül to care for our shy cats while we were on vacation, and we’re very pleased with her service. Gül visited them daily, ensuring they were comfortable and loved. Despite their shyness, she quickly bonded with them. Her attention to detail and genuine care were evident. We came back to find our cats happy and healthy. Gül’s daily photo and video updates were a great touch, giving us peace of mind. Her reliability and dedication make her our top choice for future pet sitting. We highly recommend her to anyone needing a trustworthy and compassionate pet sitter. Thanks, Gül, for taking such good care of our kitties!
