We used to send our cats for boarding when we were away. After 3+ years of not travelling due to Covid, we were worried that our 2 cats won’t be used to being in a foreign environment, plus we were going away for around 2 weeks and thus decided to try out a cat sitter instead. We engaged Sophia to come by twice a day to care for our cats. She was highly responsive from the get-go. She had a specific time schedule listed on her profile so we texted to ask if she could accommodate our needs and she replied fast on all the dates that she needed to be earlier/later than usual. What we really appreciate about Sophia is her clear and detailed communication as well as her patience and care for our cats. We were also glad for the many pictures and videos she sent to us in her updates. She was very patient with our scaredy cat and he trusted her enough to ask for pets and love after around 4 days. Our second cat tends to over-lick when anxious and he stopped doing that after a few days. By the time we came back, new fur had started growing over the initial over-licked and bare patches. This really shows how comfortable my cats were with Sophia! We are very satisfied with Sophia and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a cat sitter! We can confidently travel more now that we found someone that we trust with our home and our cats =D Thank you Sophia!

Phoebe - A Wonderful Cat Sitter! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Phoebe is an incredible cat sitter! I recently had the pleasure of hiring her to take care of my three cats for six days, and I couldn't be happier with her service. She was not only responsive but also showed genuine care for my kitties. Phoebe went above and beyond by following all the instructions I gave her, ensuring my cats were well looked after. She didn't just stop at the basics; she spent quality time with them, giving them the attention they needed. One thing I really appreciated was Phoebe built bond with my three cats. It made me feel connected and relieved knowing my furry friends were in good hands. I highly recommend Phoebe if you're in need of a reliable and caring cat sitter. Her responsiveness, responsibility, and love for animals make her stand out. I'll definitely be reaching out to her for future pet sitting needs. Thank you, Phoebe, for being such an amazing cat sitter!
