We are so glad that Joyce was able to watch our cat Simba last weekend while we were away. She took excellent care of him and we returned to a very happy cat! We look forward to having Joyce watch Simba again the next time we are out of town. She came over to meet Simba and learn his routine before we left, and she sent us updates and pictures while we were gone!
I would most defiantly hire Tiffany again. She is very professional and takes her work seriously. She took care of our 3 cats and 4 chickens, including one cat who is 16 yrs old and needing special care.
Marina is amazing! I've hired her twice for cat sitting and she always sends me photos of my cat without fail :) I have peace of mind whenever I leave my cat with her. She even goes above and beyond with her services; she cleans my apartment, she waters my plants and even bought a new bowl and food mat for my cat.
Good job, cat was happy!
I hired Shelley for cat sitting. It was on short notice, but she was very quick to respond and meet up to go over instructions. I was gone for almost a week, but Shelley was great with providing video and picture updates. When we got back home, was just as we left it and my cat barely even noticed we left :) Overall, my experience was great. I can't recommend Shelley enough, she was fantastic!
Cathy is amazing!!! We have 4 dogs, two are puppies and a cat. First, of all they took to her right away, she gives off a very caring and loving vibe. Second, she sent pictures of the doggies while we were away and had fantastic communication. She is very personable, kind, loves animals, and really does a great job taking care of them. We would highly, highly recommend her services for your fur babies.
very responsible... I really appreciated the extra effort she did for finding my cat when cat run out ( due to other people's mistake).
Great customer service. Carrie was very nice; she clearly loves animals and took excellent care of my cat.
I have used Ryan for pet sitting and dog walking for almost 3 years. I trust him with my most valuable assets!! The dogs love him and he is extremely reliable. I am a huge fan!!
I was totally at ease with leaving my cat Ruby in the care of Peggy. Everything about her looking after Ruby was perfect and I plan to do it again my next trip. Only comment is that Peggy deserved all the M and Ms left out not just a handfull!
Martha was amazing. She took care of our English Bulldog like he was her own. She updated us with photos daily and we came home to a happy dog. happverrelaxeddoggy!
Susi was fantastic with my cat Chango who was just moved from Brooklyn to SF. She was professional and personable. Chango was very happy and content when I returned home after vacation. I highly recommend Poppy's mom.
Crystal is the best! She is dependable. My dog loves her and Crystal understand animals. As an owner, I found Crystal to be flexible and communicates well, which is important when planning and changing drop off/pick up times. She is conveniently located near the airport too. We've used her for mid-day walks and over-night stays. Our neighbors started using Crystal's walking service after running into Crystal and our dog. The neighbors claim their dog is happier to see Crystal then he is to see them! You know dogs and cats don't hide their emotions! Thanks Crystal for your great service and smile. You ARE a gem!
We recently had the pleasure of contracting with Your Best Friend Pet Services to care for our dog and cat while we visited family in Southern California. The owner, Holly Pardel, was professional and friendly throughout. She scheduled a time at our convenience to come to our house to meet with us and our pets, Roxie and Roscoe. She allowed us to explain exactly the care needed for each animal. Her warmth and attention to detail immediately put both myself and my wife at ease and allowed us to leave for our trip confident that our "kids" were in very good hands. Holly came to our house twice a day. Her visits included feeding, administering medications to our lab, Roxie, as well as taking her for walks around the neighborhood. She sent numerous photos and videos of Roxie at play which again served to reassure us that all was well at home. She also took in the mail for us, and even fed our goldfish, Sunkist! Upon our return home after nearly a week's absence, we found our pets healthy and happy. Her rates are extremely reasonable for the services provided (much less than if we had boarded them). I can recommend without reservation Holly Pardel for all of your dog walking and pet sitting needs. Thanks again Holly!
Flora watched our cat for 10 days while we were on vacation over the holidays and she was absolutely excellent! She met with us in advance to introduce our kitty and she sent us daily photos and videos, which were thoughtful and appreciated. She clearly knows how to care for cats and was a great value compared to other service providers. I know that it’s always scary to give your keys to a total stranger and then leave town— Flora is absolutely trustworthy and honest. You can count on her and your pet will be in good hands. She even sent us an adorable handmade thank you card!
I highly recommend Home Medi-Cat to anyone who has a cat needing some care! Diana has been our cat sitter for several years now, and I cannot say enough good things about her! (But... I will try!!) (1) Diana has a lot of experience with cats, including formal vet tech training. This is a must in a cat sitter, because cats try to hide when they are sick and only show subtle signs that anything is wrong. So, it takes someone who is familiar with cat behaviors to know that my cats are really ok and healthy. When Diana comes over, it's almost like a mini vet visit! She was the first person to notice one of my cats had a lump -- I didn't feel it, but Diana did -- and because of her, I got my cat into the vet's office right away! She observes even the littlest behaviors and gives tons of really helpful counsel on medical issues as well as advice on behavioral/situational issues. (2) Diana is a Cat Whisperer. Even my shiest scaredy cat loved Diana right from the start, and she purrs just because Diana is in the room! My cats allow Diana to give them medications and check them over, with minimal problems. (3) Diana is extremely trustworthy, reliable and passionate about animals! I can depend on Diana to come when she says she will come, and a few times she has even gotten us an extra box of litter when I was running out and didn't have time to get to the store. She is very passionate about cats well-being, care, happiness -- but also, I get seasonal wild ducklings at my house, and she helps me take care of them too!!! Diana is also a really great person in general - kind, ethical, smart and strong. I know that whenever I leave my cats in Diana's care, she will really care for them -- perhaps even better than I can! All the best, Toni Mirabelli 650-740-8333
Chelsea is an excellent person for animal care. She has a deep love for many different kinds of animals and it shows in her work. She has helped take care of my cats (one of which requires medication multiple times a day) and she was absolutely on top of it with their feeding/medication schedules. She is a very detail oriented person and it shows in her work. Her own pets are meticulously cared for, and she brings this kind of focus to all of her work with animals. She is a top notch petsitter with good judgement (especially important for my cat with health issues- should he need medical attention or some extra TLC) and a sincere love for animals. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with their animals.
Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto
Pam took very good care of all of my animals. She was able to take care of the dogs, cat and bird. She kept me well informed and we were happy with her service.
Absolutely amazing experience. Sent daily updates on my two fur babies, including photos. I will be using Precious Fur for all of my cat-sitting needs in the future!
My cat precious just moved to Napa. She had the same pet sitter for 5 years. Napa Pet Care did a great job in winning her over and they did a great job with her. I plan to use them when ever I leave town. Great job..
