Introduction: We are experienced pet sitters with a five star rating. However, we do not do overnight visits because we are pet sitters, not house sitters and our animals need us overnight. We care for both healthy and ailing pets with experience with diabetic, thyroid , sick and injured animals. Over our lifetime we have had over 25 pets, plus all the assorted animals our daughters brought home from school over holidays. We love all animals, and go above and beyond, including taking your pet to the vet or emergency vet if the need arises. Sadly we can not do over night pet sitting since our own pets need us at night. We only go to jobs within a half hour of where we live in Mesa, AZ, about 15 miles from home. This includes Mesa, Gilbert, and Queen Creek and Gold Canyon. Please note that we also cannot do overnight visits due to having pets of our own. There is a $10 fee for administration of injectable and pill medications. Also, we do charge extra for holidays.

Pet Sitting

Karen & Steven did an amazing, over the top job at watching over my 2 cats for a full week! They spent at least an hour with them every day, coaxing Max out of his hiding places. In fact Max has never tolerated anyone and certainly won’t come to them. But by the end of the week Max came out to see them and receive his treats. I’ve never seen him come out for anyone, he was a very traumatized cat! My other cat Reine really hates being alone! And she appreciate the love, scratches and play time she had with them! How do I know? Each day Karen would send me photos of my cats and the time we spent with them. She gave them treats mind that there are boxes and food and water. She also but my trashcan in and watered my plants. After arriving home I could see they were both calm and happy to see me! I wouldn’t have dreamed a cat sitter could give me such assurance and peace of mind. They are wonderful people and I will certainly use them again, very soon☺️

We really appreciated the very detailed updates about our senior kitty while they cared for her. They did a fantastic job and their knowledge and love for cats gave us the peace of mind knowing our kitty was well care for. Highly recommend!

I was impressed with this team upon our meet and greet. They asked great questions and took notes about schedules, eating, litter, play, and even safety precautions like what to do in the event of an air conditioning failure or vet emergency. Their care and concern for my cat was evident during our initial conversation, but they truly demonstrated it while on house visits. I got daily pictures and texts about what my cat was eating and how he was behaving. It was a great peace of mind knowing I had two caring and trustworthy people helping out. We will definitely call upon K&S the next time we are out of town!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing is based upon the distance from our home, number of animals, and duties related to the animals per visit. We do charge $10 extra for dispensing medications - both oral and injections due to this being a serious responsibility. Holidays are also an extra charge. We do NOT do overnight sitting since our own pets need us at night.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It is very important to me to get to know my customer and her furry baby-babies prior to the start of a job. I like to schedule an appointment about one week prior to the start of a job so that I not only meet them, but also find out the routines, feeding times and amount, any medications and how they are to be administered, and also to get all emergency contact information for both the client and the pet.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I did extensive work in research and also have had personal experience with diabetic animals, dosing with antibiotics, dosing with thyroid medications, care of an animal with a broken leg, care following surgeries, and fostering feral animals following surgeries and infections.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
