I cannot recommend Pei Xian highly enough! She went above and beyond to take care of my pets while I was away. Not only did she follow all of my instructions to a tee, but she also sent me frequent updates and pictures of my furry friends, which gave me peace of mind and made me feel connected to them while I was away. She was incredibly attentive to their needs and gave them lots of love and attention. When I returned home, my pets were happy and healthy, and my house was just as I had left it. I could tell that she had taken great care in making sure everything was just right. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Pei Xian, and I will definitely be using her services again in the future. If you're looking for a pet sitter who truly cares about your pets and goes above and beyond to make sure they're well taken care of, look no further than Pei Xian!

This is my first time engaging a pet sitter. Usually I send my cats to boarding, but my travel arrangements changed last minute. I contacted Jerlyn after reading her profile and reviews. I need a sitter who can come twice a day and comfortable in administering oral medications. In the initial communication, I gave Jerlyn the background on my cats and outlined things that are important to me. Jerlyn addressed all my concerns and after exchanging several messages she came over for a meet and greet. I felt assured after our meeting that Jerlyn will be able to look after my cats, in particular administering oral medications. Jerlyn sent updates on the cats’ food intake, litter boxes, and meds together with videos and photos in each visit. After a few days my cats (who are scared of strangers) started warming up to her and she spent some time to give them cuddles and play with them, which I appreciate. I also had to extend my travel and was grateful that Jerlyn was flexible enough to accept my extension. Highly recommended and will look to engage Jerlyn again for my next travel.
