Im so happy to have found Tiffany! She is responsive, caring and trustworthy! She sends us pictures of our cat Mia every day she comes to see her and tells us Her mood, eating habits and if there is anything that calls her attention. I highly recommend Tiffany for anyone that is looking for a pet sitter!
Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.
Marina is the absolute best!!! We have 2 cats, one of which has diabetes. Marina came to our house twice a day for over 2 weeks while we were in Europe. She administered insulin. fed the cats, and cleaned the litter box ever time she visited. We have had many cat sitters in the past and it was obvious as soon as you meet Marina that she has such a calming presence and really understands and loves animals.
We have been using the services of Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Care for about 14 years, that fact alone I think speaks highly of what they provide! I appreciate the peace of mind knowing that our beloved cats are well tended to as well as the security of our home in our absence. We request one visit daily during which time the cats are fed, sand box cleaned and there is also some playtime which gives companionship. I like the idea that someone lightly checks the interior of the house in case there should be any maintenance mishaps. Being a bonded professional business I have no problem having Elizabeth retain a key and that way is easily available when needed.
Maria was amazing! She spent a great deal of time making sure the place was thoroughly clean! She is friendly and great with my pets! Be sure to allow a lot of time on her first visit. When she says "thorough"... she means it!!
I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!
I was extremely satisfied with the care my dog received in our absence. Ryan kept me infotmed via text of his visits and how our Layla was doing. I would drfinitely recommend his services. I have never felt comfortable having a pet sitter in my home snd this was a first time. So happy cannot imagine kenneling her when Ryan is availabe and competent.
Peggy (and Loving Paws) is a compassionate, caring animal professional. She has helped my pit bull mix, Barney, to be more calm and well behaved just by walking him. The services she offers are everything you could possibly want from a pet sitter and specialist. She is always on time. I am looking forward to continue using her services as she is honest and dependable.
Pam is an excellent pet sitter. She was quick to respond to my request, offers a fair price and seems to really love animals. I would definitely recommend her services!
Christina was great with our two kittens and sent adorable photos of them to us after each visit. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
My house and pets are in good shape and happy when we come home from vacation. Chelsea has pet sat for us for over 6 years... wouldn't use anyone else.
I've used Gail for pet sitting for my 2 cats several times. She is very sweet and my kitties love her! She is very caring and professional - I highly recommend her!
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
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 excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!
Amy was a spectacular house sitter! She was responsible, covering all the bases before, during, and after the house sit such that everything was in order to the last detail. While we were away, she sent emails with photos of our kitty to check in each day. If she had questions she asked them clearly and directly so we could solve any issue quickly. When we returned home, our plants were happy, our kitty safe and sound, and our house clean and smelling good! All and all it was such a pleasant experience to have Amy as our house sitter. It defiantly pays to have a mindful person in this important role of caring for our beloved home.
Shawnon is great with my boys and treats them as her own "ratties" (rat terrier twins)!
My dogs LOVE Vanessa and that is the most important thing! She gives them lots of personal attention and I know they are in good hands when she is with them. Vanessa is always professional and punctual and her rates are very reasonable. Excellent pet sitter!
Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!
Shanna answered our prayers for an honest and trustworthy pet sitter who knew animal behavior as well as how to be a respectful house-sitter. She is also reliable, available/flexible, and communicative. We have a dog with some socialization issues and Shanna listened to our explanation of his behavior and our approach to managing him. We tried several sitters before Shanna and were unfortunately not confident in their instincts or level of responsibility with our pup. It was such a relief to finally find that person in Shanna. You won't regret hiring her.
Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.
