(+) 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.
Snaggle Foot came twice daily to care for our two cats and our lizard while we were away on our honeymoon. This was a gift from the groom's mother, who had done a lot research into pet sitters in the New Haven area and found Snaggle Foot to have the best combination of flexible service and competitive rates. From the beginning, everything was very professional; Judy S visited our home and gave an overview of the service and inquired about other things we might possibly need (mail, plants, etc). She also asked about our pets' special needs (none in our case) and became familiar with the location of food, litter, treats, toys, etc. The service we received was fantastic -- we received updates daily/every other day (sometimes with photos) and never had any doubt that our pets were in the best of hands. When we returned home, the litter box was sparkling clean, and our cats didn't have that typical starved-for-attention-for-days attitude that they give us when we're only gone overnight. I would highly recommend Snaggle Foot for your pet care needs!
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.
Sarah watched my dogs for 10 days about a month ago. I have two dogs and work from home so they have beyond extreme separation anxiety, so I was very tentative to travel, but had to leave the country so taking my dogs with me was not an option. A close friend of mine recommended her to me and I tried it. I am so beyond grateful for Sarah and her services. She brought my dogs everywhere with her, fortunately she has a job allowing her to bring them to work with her, she brought them to local dog parks and even brought them to a dog bakery to pick out their own snacks and then stopped at PetSmart to let them pick out some new toys, much more than I would ever expect any petsitter to do. She kept me updated sending me at least two texts with pictures of my babies and responded to all my messages. My female dog, Madison, takes a while to warm up to people and can be snippy, Sarah had no issues at all with her and Madison trusted her within minutes of Sarah watching her. I returned home to a wonderful picture collage of my dogs "Vacation with Sarah" and them happily asleep in their beds snuggled with their new toys, I have Sarah routinely come take them on trips now as they love to leave the house and adventure with her, they always come home super happy and then sadly walk around for at least an hour after she leaves. I couldn't have found a better pet sitter if I had duplicated myself! She truly is amazing
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 have two cats. One is a cranky territorial male who can be hostile to strangers. I have had several cat sitters who were intimated by him and needed to have a water gun handy to deal with him. But Kim, who has worked with feral cats, knew just how to handle him. Her calm demeanor (and treats) went a long way to forge a trust that allowed her to come into the house and take care of both my cats. I would definitely hire her again!
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.
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!
Olga was a great and professional Vet Technician where I use to bring my dog for medical issues. She is the most amazing pet sitter. I known her for more than 10 years and I can't find nobody like her. She is compassionate, lovely and very responsible with pets. I recommend her to anybody that needs a pet sitter.
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.
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!
Marilyn of London Dog Care was fantastic! After the regular pet sitter was unable to care for the pets, right before vacation, Marilyn responded, came to the house, met "The Crew ", and we were set. We 4 dogs- 1 small, and then 2 large Bully breeds, and a Cane Corso - all dog breeds that can intimidate by their presence. The dogs took to Marilyn immediately. I received updates whole on vacation, texts and photos, and I always felt at ease that my dogs were excellently taken care of. - When our plane was late coming back, Marilyn did an last minute emergency visit to the house on short notice! - I feel confident in recommending London Dog Care. Marilyn is one if very few people that has met my dogs, cared for them without hesitation inspite of their brutish looks. London Dog Care is my number 1 pet sitting service. Mimi Beaulieu
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!
Melissa is talented trainer and a very nice person.
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!!
Lorraine was lovely. Prompt, responsible, and gentle. Our dog took to her immediately. She walked our dog three times a day for five days while we were taking our son to college. We left our dog with my mother who, for health reasons, was unable to walk the dog. My mother raved about how wonderful Lorraine was each time I spoke with her.
