Summary: Anna is amazing to book to cat sit your cats, her communication before booking, taking in our 'requirements', and actually taking care of our cats was flawless. More info: - Before booking: it was easy to communicate with Anna, she answered very fast and we quickly found a date and time for a meet and greet. - Meet and greet: Anna was very friendly and interacted well with our cats. She seems a true cat person. She took in all our details and wrote them down in her phone for references later on. She also offered to water our plants and take our mail up. We had the feeling our cats would be in good hands! - Cat sitting: on the day itself we got a bunch of nice pictures and movies, our cats are always a bit anxious when we leave (and so are we!), but Anna reassured us a lot they were well tended for... The cats looked really happy Anna was there and she did everything as expected :D - Coming home: everything in order! Was so good to see that Anna took care of everything! 5/5 would book again
