Penny took great care of our cats and dogs. Will use her again for sure.Nov 5, 2018Verified
I couldn't be more thankful for the service that I received from Purrr-fect Penny's Pet Sitting! During the approach of Hurricane Irma, I was out of town. My roommate decided to evacuate and we needed someone to care for my 17 year old dog, Maggie, and in a hurry. Penny replied so, so quickly, and gave me Richard's contact information. We spoke on the phone within the hour and coordinated him visiting and walking Maggie three times a day until my return. The day before the storm was to hit our area, I checked in with Richard and he had packed up Maggie, her crate, toys and food and taken her to his own home....he didn't want her to be alone during the storm. My heart is in my throat as I type this....I couldn't have been more thankful. In addition to the late notice of watching her, I also had trouble flying back into Tampa...for three days. He ended up keeping Maggie for an entire week. Because of the circumstances, he very generously gave me a great deal on her charges. Upon him dropping her off, she was safe, happy and obviously had bonded with Richard! I will DEFINITELY be using Purrr-fect Penny's Pet Sitting again and couldn't be happier with their services! <3 NikkiSep 19, 2017Verified
She is goodJan 15, 2016VerifiedPurrr-fect Penny's Pet Sitting's reply
I did an 11-day overnight dog sitting job and was told I did a Fabulous, super job and the neighbors even commented how well I took care of the dog seeing me out walking with him several times a day letting him sniff every blade of grass! I walked this dog for an hour every day for a week and he was very happy with it! I gave him extra time outdoors to exercise! He loved it!
Penny went over and above to assure my dogs were loved and happy!Oct 20, 2018Verified
Penny was on time and although she never got to meet Tuffy in person (or cat) let us know Tuffy was being feed and watered and her litter was kept clean. I would definitely ask Penny to sit with Tuffy again.Sep 1, 2018VerifiedPurrr-fect Penny's Pet Sitting's reply
Thank you, Lewis, for the great Review. I look forward to coming back and hopefully meeting Tuffy. Out of 56 jobs, Tuffy is the first kittie I did not meet. She must be very shy and be very attached to her daddy and mommy. But I talked softly, sweetly, lovingly to her and told her I Loved her and I Love All kitties and she was safe with me. Tuffy had a big house with lots of room and must have found a comfy spot. She probably was not too happy that her mom and dad were gone. I am always reliable, timely, trustworthy, very friendly and Happy and provide Professional Services. I fed Tuffy and gave her fresh water and cleaned her litter meticulously clean and vacuumed surrounding floor and rug in eating and litter box area. I spent extra time looking for Tuffy and talking gently and lovingly to her. All my other cats have been drawn to my Sweetness, Soft- Spoken nature, my Gentleness, my Warm, Loving Heart. I am very Playful and love to play with my pets if they desire. I get along with all people and all my pets too. They sense the Goodness and Genuine Love and desire to Give in me. I brought a cat out from hiding after a few days and we became the best of friends for 18 days. She wanted to be pet and be given attention and affection and loved to play! It was very rewarding to see the change in her and we really bonded. It was hard to say goodbye after 18 days spent with her! I missed her! This has happened several times and it is very rewarding. I Love Pet Sitting and I put my Heart and Soul into my profession and the pets! I am a Unique, Special, Gifted Pet Sitter. I work hard and make sure I am a Blessing to my pets and make a difference in their life and a Positive Contribution in their Life and help them be Happy and have a Great time! A 15-year friend said I was a True Blue, The Real McCoy Pet Sitter. I worked for him in the past but he had to go back into carpentry work. Tuffy's cottage was very cozy and quiet. A great home for a cat to curl up in a soft, cozy corner and nap. I look forward to pet sitting for Tuffy again and there's a good chance I will meet her next time. Some cats just like their independence and I Respect that. If they desire Companionship, I am the Best Companion Ever! Friends call me Precious Penny. I am a Precious Pet Sitter and I treat my pets like Precious Angels! We are Blessed to have pets so they deserve the Best of Care! Thank you, Lewis. I look forward to taking care of Tuffy again in the future. Penny Purr-fect Penny's Pet Sitting and Dogs too!

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Just did some volunteering at the Humane Society and watched the animals at the adoption.

- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I am honestly most proud of my own cat because I spend the most time with him. He tries to escape the front door when I leave and come home, and that is a no-no. I don't want him getting flees. I never let him get out! It is hard not letting him get his way but it is for his best. He was sick and I made two trips to the vet with him and he was very hard to get in the box but I did it. It took a while but he finally did get back to his normal playful self! He is very curious about everything, checks everything out, stays by my side, loves to be petted and eat and drink and sleep when he wears him self out. I was madly in love with my two previous cats and never thought I would ever get another one, but I finally got to the point where I found Tigger, and he makes me smile inside and give me a lot of attention and company!
