(+) Suki fulfilled the expected tasks of a cat sitter -- providing food, filling the water bowl, and scooping the litter box. She sent daily photos. She was pretty quick to responding to my texts. Suki's rate/cost is affordable compared to other cat sitters, especially professionals (-) Although she sent daily photos, they were sometimes just blurry snaps of my cat's back. From the photos alone, it did not seem that Suki spent much time with him. Rather felt like she was merely showing me that she "checked in" to see my cat. I was disappointed to return home and see that the curtains were down when she said that she will make sure they are up.
Michael deserves the cat sitters' Purple Heart for scratches suffered giving our cat Thelonious 4 to 5 oral medications a day for homeopathic treatment of lymphoma while my wife was away. Our cat does everything to avoid medication but Michael was cool under fire as he picked up the cat from his hiding places and was very professional in delivering the medication. He was affable and relaxed under extremely difficult conditions. I hope his next cat sitting job goes easier.
Jill has a very positive attitude toward our two rather sensitive and wary dogs. Her loving and calming effect has our dogs waiting at her feet with wagging tails. They LOVE her after only one visit! Jill is a professional, kind, caring and honest person. We don't use pet sitters regularly -- it's those last-minute weekend vacations or times when we work late and need someone to come and care for them. She always makes herself available and ensures our dogs are not only fed and given fresh water, but that they get their regular, long walks. We are so lucky to have found Jill.
Jen and her associates truly love pets. So many of the pet-sitters are solely focused on dogs. These guys really know and like cats, too. And my cats like them back.
I have known Kate since 2006 when I hired her to take care of my dogs while living for a year in New York City. I chose Kate from several people listing dog care services on Craig’s List because, of all the ones I interviewed, I found her to be the most professional and conscientious, offering to meet the dogs and myself before the job began. As a pet sitter I found Kate to be competent, reliable, and proactive in addressing any problems that might arise but, above all, Kate is a caring, compassionate individual who genuinely takes an interest in the happiness and well being of her furry charges. Over the years, what began as a professional relationship became a friendship. I have never had any qualms leaving her with my pets in my home or entrusting her with their care. She has been to my home many times since we both returned to Michigan not only as a dog sitter and friend but also to help with catering and serving at parties. Kate also helped with dog walking and meal preparation the summer I was receiving chemo so I can recommend not only her culinary and animal skills but her people care skills as well. I hope you will consider Kate for whatever purpose she has chosen to give you this letter of recommendation. She will not only do her best for you, she will exceed your expectations.
Roe is awesome! The best cat sitter I have ever had!!! My babies love her! She is affordable and flexible. She cared for my diabetic cat and we were able to work out a deal where she came and gave him his shots twice a day AND spent the night with them. They weren't even a bit traumatized by my absence this time! Roe genuinely loves animals and even helped me solve a litter box issue. I have used cat sitters for over 20 years and Roe is, hands down, the absolute best!
I could not have asked for better cat sitters! They are professional, kind and are very obviously real animal lovers. Because Jorge is a vet tech I felt comfortable leaving my sick cat with him for a few days and having him administer fluids and medicines. They have reasonable prices and I totally trusted them in my home. Both jorge and another employee even took it upon themselves to FaceTime me so I could say hi to my babies.
I was very skeptical at first about getting a nanny for my furbabies. I received a few responses but when I met with Shirley, I knew she was the perfect sitter for my two cats. Very professional and very caring. She took such great care of them during the 2 weeks that I was away. She'd even send me pictures of them which made me more at ease being overseas. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I will most definitely contact them again the next time I am in need of a pet sitter.
Vicky was absolutely wonderful. I havent been on vacation in a long time because Ive been so afraid to leave my cats but Vicky totally put my mind at ease. Shes personable and responsible and a true animal lover. In fact, my cats opened up to her during our first meet & greet (even my fearful ex-stray was comfortable and he hides from everyone!). I particularly loved how Vicky sent me text and picture updates throughout my vacation. Anyway, I definitely recommend Vicky to anyone looking for a professional and loving pet sitter.
Leah did a great job. Will definitely call her next time I need a pet sitter.
Tammy is unquestioningly a wonderful pet sitter. We have left our two elderly Nichols in her care for two weeks on occasion, and we returned to happy and healthy dogs. Tammy , in addition is a delightful person who is absolutely lovely to deal with. We sing the highest praises on her behalf.
Each one of us has our own levels of satisfaction and I can say that mine is at the top with Seaton stables and that if I am to scale it from 1-10 and 10 being the highest, mine would be a 10. Im very hard to please and I barely express my appreciation towards someone. But this time, I feel the need to speak up and share my experience with Seaton Hackney Stables because of the negative reviews here. I think that its really unfair to them because theyre really doing a great job. The volunteers and instructors work hard to make every visitors or riders experience an awesome one. I can say that they take good care of the horses because the horses are very healthy and energetic. They deserve to be complimented not criticized. Ive recommended Seaton Hackney Stables to friends and relatives and they thanked me for telling them about this awesome place. Like me and my family, they had a wonderful experience at the stables. Keep up the good work, Seaton Stables!
One of the best horse trainers and teachers around. Kara has the patience and observational skills that make for excellence.
I am so happy to have found Amber she was great to work with, and she sent me texts after each visit checking in on my cat. I already booked two more jobs with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Karen is amazing! I never ever worry about my dogs when she is here. (And i have rescue dogs one of which has issues.) I can travel and work with peace of mind. She is gentle; Dependable; Trustworthy. My dogs love her. She goes above and beyond all the time. I have had numerous dog sitters in the past. No more. This woman will always be the one i call for dog sitting. Do yourself a favor. Ditch the others and go with Karen. She’s fabulous!
I needed pet-sitting for 2 cats while out of town - I had a bad experience with a prior cat-sitter but Ana was great to work with. When I came home, the cats were happy & fed, there was clean water available & the litter was clean. I will definitely use this service again for my next trip!
I needed a pet sitter for my dog and came across What About the Pets. My dog is afraid of everyone and everything but when he met Christina it was as if he knew her and immediately made a connection. I felt so much more comfortable leaving him in her care. The company is professional, reliable, reasonable, and most importantly compassionate. I will definitely be using the services again and have been recommending ever since!
Robin loves my dogs & the feeling is mutual! She has stayed in my home 24/7 for @ least 8 days @ a time, also day sits. They love to see her & run after she whens she leaves. Been using her for over 15 years & never worry about my dogs when she's minding them. Always on time, always follows up w/anything that requires my attention. Excellent in any so-called emergency I might have while I'm away. Five stars plus!!
Melissa is talented trainer and a very nice person.

I've been riding since I was 10. I can teach and ride both English/Western, from beginners to amateurs. I can also exercise the horse and train him from a rescue horse to more trained horses. I work with all ages as well and do trail riding. Also, I clean and groom stalls.
