Introduction
**Please note that I DO NOT board animals OR stay over night in your home (for the time being)...For now, I can only accommodate drop-in visits. I felt it warranted to note this, as Thumbtack charges me on an initial PER-MESSAGE basis, even if jobs are not based on my specified parameters** *Please also note, pricing is dependent on several factors, including number and kind of animals, extent of care required, distance from my home, etc.* ----------------------- All That said...... Hi There! :) Thanks for checking out my page. I'm very established on the Rover app (iOS and Android) with nothing but five star reviews. Since I can't paste a link here, feel free to ask me about and I'll send it your way! You can also find it listed under the website header on my profile. More about me: I come from a family of animal lovers. My uncle (now retired) was a veterinarian, so I’ve always had a deep affinity and love towards animals. I almost went to vet school, but decided to pursue my graduate degree in Industrial Engineering, as I also love numbers and engineering as a self-proclaimed nerd!:) I've grown up with dogs and cats, both large and small breed, my entire life. When I was much younger, I started a home and pet care business in Saratoga and Los Gatos in 2008 and retained over 25 repeat clients, including Fortune 500 CEOs and Stanford Hospital surgeons and cared for a variety of animals, including Arabian horses and African parrots. More importantly, I’ve always felt emotionally connected to the animals I grew up with, as I’m sure you do too! They truly are part of the family and seem to have a very keen understanding of deciphering your own emotions and acting accordingly. This all being said, your pet is treated as my own in my care...with the utmost love, compassion and understanding. More than happy to answer any questions you might have for me! All The Best, Michael

Michael is a wonderful young man who takes his pet sitting seriously, which I appreciate! He’s great at keeping you apprised of what’s going on with your fur family, and is quick to respond to any questions. The house looked just as good as when I left! I was sorry that all of my cats are shy and I don’t think any of them came out for him!

Details: Cat • 5 pets • Giving food and water • Changing litter or bedding • Standard visit (60 minutes) • Two times a day • My home, venue, etc.

Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was friendly, thorough, and professional. His rates were very fair and we were able to relax on our trip knowing that our cats were in great hands. We thoroughly recommend Michael’s services - I can’t imagine a more reliable and communicative pet sitter! Thank you, Michael - we were lucky to find you!

Michael is one of the most caring, genuine and honest individuals you will ever meet. His love for animals is obvious and sincere. He loves animals and our dogs liked him immediately. He is professional, on time and his rates are very reasonable. We are extremely happy with him and will continue to have him take care of our pets in the future. We feel lucky to know Michael and highly recommend his services. My only regret is that we didn’t find him sooner!

Details: Dog • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Taking pet outside • Providing companionship • Changing litter or bedding • Providing exercise • Overnight visit (10-12 hours) • My home, venue, etc.

Michael is very professional and helpful, when he first met our dog at our place by himself , our 75lbs German shepherd got nervous and growled at him. It was something we didn’t expect, but Michael actively communicated with our and we worked together to find a solution. Our dog warmed up to him later and they had a good play in the yard. I really appreciate his effort, would definitely recommend.

Details: Dog • 3 pets • Giving food and water • Taking pet outside • Providing exercise • Standard visit (60 minutes) • Once in total • My home, venue, etc.
