I grew up with animals and understand that they need familiarity and routine, and most importantly, being respected as fellow inhabitants of our community.
All my dogs have passed on from old age and I am currently a proud parent of 3 cats - and I am a care giver to the community cats around my neighbourhood.
Hence I’m a big believer of letting your pets stay home with a trusted care giver while you’re away instead of sending them to an unfamiliar environment.
I will insist on spending some alone time with your pet to make sure that I can establish a good rapport with them before taking on any assignments.
I would recommend at least two visits:
1) The first is for us to get to know each other and most importantly to introduce me to your pet. I will also take note of your pet’s routine and what you’d like me to pay attention to.
2) The second visit is for me to participate in a routine activity with your pet, and to further understand their likes and dislikes - and just as important, for me to clarify any questions I may have about your pet / home.
Hence I will avoid taking on last minute assignments.
Finally, you will get daily text and video updates on how your pet is doing.
Absolutely highly recommended and trusted sitter. The willingness of taking extra steps to understand what is the best for my pets was really touching. When we were away my dog fell sick unfortunately, and Herbin communicated well with us and made sure my dog is being well taken care of, it felt great to have someone trust worthy to take care of your sick furkid when you are away. Thanks again Herbin, will definitely engage you again for help when we need it.
Herbin is everything you could ask for in a cat sitter! He is friendly, full of initiative, and built a really good rapport with both my cats. He took the time to visit us twice before our scheduled dates and was genuinely interested in finding out our kitties' habits and quirks. He even asked about our vet info (in case of emergencies), and if we have cat carriers. I really appreciate the attention to detail he displayed, in the form of daily updates every single day - cute videos, photos with hilarious captions. He even took the initiative to wash the kitty's water fountain and dishes, disposal of old food in the kitchen, and to activate my irobot. My kitties were brushed and given foot massages everyday lol! When we got home from our vacation, we were expecting some hairballs or fur flying around the house, as would usually be the case when we travel for more than a week. Instead, the house was spick and span, with a sweet little Christmas gift waiting for us - truly the icing on the cake and the mark of somebody who really enjoys what he does, and does it to the highest of standards. Thank you so much for being you, and we highly recommend you to anybody we know!
What’s important is for you to witness how your pet interacts with me - hence let‘s meet to have a F2F assessment.
