I had an incredible experience with Nur as our cat sitter. As a first timer engaging catsitting services, we were anxious and worried to leave our cats in the hands of a stranger but Nur proved to be trustworthy, responsible and dedicated in ensuring we have a peace of mind while we were away on holiday. Nur came over to meet us and our cats Aura and Yanelle before we decided to book her services, to familiarise with our cats, home settings and the needs of our fur babies. While explaining to her their feeding times, habits, behaviour and litter clearing, Nur diligently took down notes to ensure our instructions were clear and well taken note of. She was also meticulous about ensuring the safety of our home - which doors to lock, windows to close/open, which lights and fans to leave switched on/off. As our cats are both litter and toilet-trained, Nur had no qualms clearing their litter in the litter tray and also the toilet, ensuring the areas are always clean and our cats are in clean and comfortable living condition. She went above and beyond during our 6-day vacation, providing dedicated care to our cats Aura and Yanelle. Nur not only ensured their basic needs were met but took the time to bond with them, which is no easy feat with our cats as they usually take time to warm up to strangers and would hide in every cornernl they could find. It's astonishing how quickly Aura and Yanelle connected with Nur, just within her second and third day here. Nur even stayed to play with them, givig them rubs and stimulating them through play time with their toys provided. In a short time, our furbabies were already sitting and playing on her lap. That shows how much they love her! Nur's commitment to their well-being extended beyond feeding and cleaning; she genuinely cared about their comfort. We returned home to a spotless house, and our cats looked not just content but genuinely well-taken care of. I appreciate Nur's extra effort, spending more than half an hour during each visit. Every visit comes with photos and videos updates of our cats, twice a day, and we were kept updated all the time. I'm eternally grateful for her fantastic service and highly recommend her for anyone seeking a reliable and caring cat sitter. Definitely highly recommended, Nur is a true animal lover!

I recently had the pleasure of having Yan take care of my two cats while I was away, and I must say, I couldn't have asked for a better cat sitter. Yan's dedication and love for animals were evident from the start. She took the time to understand each of my cats' unique personalities and needs, ensuring they were comfortable and well-cared for in my absence. Not only did Yan provide the essentials like food and clean litter, but they also went above and beyond by spending quality time with them, playing, which I know my cats absolutely loved. Yan also kept me updated with regular messages and adorable photos, which gave me great peace of mind. Coming home to happy, healthy cats was a testament to Yan's exceptional care. Their professionalism, reliability, and genuine affection for animals make them a top-notch cat sitter. I highly recommend Yan to anyone seeking a caring and trustworthy individual to look after their furry family members. Thank you, Yan, for your wonderful service!"
