Joyce was amazing with my two cats. She even sent us pictures of them while we were away. Joyce fed our cats the prescribed amounts, cleaned the litter box, and played with them. We came home to very happy kitties and plan to use Joyce for all of our future cat sitting needs!

We met Tiffany through our local Veterinary Hospital and she came highly recommend from our attending Vet for pet sitting. We have a senior cat with lots of needs who is best left in her own setting when we leave. Tiffany is extremely diligent and trustworthy in giving the best care including medications and multiple visits daily for food and meds. Her text messages keep us informed and relieved our kitty is in the best of care while we are away. She goes above and beyond great service taking her responsibility very seriously and is always professional. Her love of animals shows in her work.

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!

Erika is an EXCELLENT pet sitter!! She is extremely responsive, responsible, thoughtful and caring. Erika impressed us immediately at our first meeting- she was thorough in learning about what our cats' wants and needs, personalities and proclivities. For each visit, Erika sends us short videos of our cats; which gives us peace of mind. She is very quick to respond to our requests, even if its short notice. Erika even arranged for a reliable, vetted sub when she was out of town, and we needed cat sitting. We feel very fortunate to have found Erika to take care of our beloved kitties. We highly recommend her!!!

Heather came out free of charge for a meet & greet with my german shepherd & she was great. Received a lot of great information. She has a wonderful personality, very caring towards animals in general & off the back, you can tell she knows her stuff. I look forward to working with her on my dog.

Jody was excellent in all ways. She was wonderful with our elderly cat...he loved her and was calm and happy upon our return. She is very personable, responsible, and completed all cat and home tasks to perfection. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I would hire Jody again in a second! (It’s All About the Cat)

I tried Pam for the first time and she was great! She took care of my elderly cat while I left for a week long vacation. She gave me regular updates when she visited so I didn't have to worry about my furry friend one bit.

Overall, she did a great job! I appreciated her initial consult and how thorough she was and how she included her BG check. And then when it came to the actual pet sitting I loved the videos she sent — really put my mind at ease.

This was our first time using Precious Fur (or any pet sitting service) to watch our 2 kitties, and we were amazed beyond our expectations for how wonderful they were with them. We were out of town for just over a week, and towards the end of our vacation, one of our kitties had an unexpected medical emergency. Jessica noticed right away that he wasn't feeling very well and was able to get him into the pet hospital that same evening to be treated. She dispensed his pain killers and made sure he was hydrating, eating, and was comfortable for the last few days we were away. We came home to kitties who were extremely happy, even after the medical emergency and disruption in their usual routine. We will definitely be using Precious Fur again and would recommend Jessica and Craig to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The care and love they showed our babies was beyond what we were expecting. They treated them like their own little family, and it makes the anxiety of leaving them when we are out of town a bit easier.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

  • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
  • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
    • 45-minute visit: $28.
    • 60-minute visit: $32.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
    • 12 hours: $100.
    • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.

How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32.
