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!

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!
