Great pet sitting! Saw my cat as agreed and made sure she had everything she needed.Mar 9, 2018Verified
At the last minute I realized I didn't want Henry (my 4 year old cat) to be in a cage at a vet while I was away on a weekend). I reached out through Thumbtack, and chose Trustworthy Petter Sitterl to pet sit. Michael came over for a meet and greet and he's such a lovely person that immediately I knew Henry would be in good hands. Michael sent me texts and pictures and left a wonderful note and a bag of presents for Henry. I will absolutely call Trustworthy Pet Sitter again!Feb 19, 2018Verified
Michael has been fantastic. I've now used him to pet sit for my cat on 2 week-long occasions. He never forgets, is flexible about finding a time to pick up keys, and is very careful about instructions (how much to feed, of what, when, taking the dirty litter out to the trash, etc.) Of particular note was how he went above, beyond, and to the moon for me on the first occasion. I was taking a cruise from Puerto Rico (which doesn't require a US passport but the other countries I was visiting did). I left my passport at home and was stuck in San Juan not able to board the cruise. I called Michael since he has access to my apt & passport, he dropped everything, went to my apartment, found my passport, and shopped around at a number of Fed Ex locations to try to overnight my passport to me. This was a Friday and it turns out that San Juan doesn't deliver packages on Sundays OR Saturdays so it was going to be faster to fly home and get the passport myself. After shopping around the city to try to get my passport to me and being available for my frantic calls, Michael went BACK to my apt to drop off my passport for when I came to pick it up. Though the FedEx-ing didn't work out, the lengths that Michael went to help me out were extraordinary and I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone who needs pet-sitting (or who MIGHT have a travel fiasco like I did). Thank you Michael!Feb 27, 2017Verified
We found Michael about two days prior to leaving out trip. He was so responsive, kind, and ensured things worked for us given the right turn around. In addition, while we were out, he kept in touch and sent photos :) I recommend him for any pet sitting. Of, he watched our two cats but confident that he'd be wonderful with any furry family friend!Jun 6, 2018
Exceptional service! I used to cat sit for friends and neighbors and know how challenging cats can be - my experience with Michael has been a blessing for both my cat Milo and for me. He really catered to Mill's needs and showed such compassion and dedication. Very responsive and great communication. Everything was super clean when I got home and Milo seemed happy and in good spirits and health. I will use Michael again in the future and can highly recommend his services. Michael is also a very kind and nice person. Thank you very much Michael! 🐾May 23, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?To be discussed on a one-by-one basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In the beginning, I always make a point of personally visiting the client and his or her pet(s) in the comfort of their own home. This typically provides the client with the opportunity to give me the run-down on things like grooming habits, specific diets, and administering medication when necessary. I also like to leave a unique, handwritten note to each client before I leave. I like to think of it as a gesture to display my gratitude for the client's hospitality.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED (Certified by the American Red Cross through May 2019). Please refer to my list of Media Files for the PDF link to my Certificate.
