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.

Krystie took great care of my 2 cats and always made sure to send me updates with photos which I appreciate. She was very accommodating and willing to stop by even on short notice. I definitely recommend her if you are looking for a reliable pet sitter.

(+) 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.

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.

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.

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.

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. I’m 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 it’s really unfair to them because they’re really doing a great job. The volunteers and instructors work hard to make every visitor’s or rider’s 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. I’ve 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!

I was in desperate need for an experienced dog-walker who could handle my anxious Mini Pinscher and my 75 lb American Bulldog foster with guarding issues. I was very pleased with his service. Super reliable!

Katy is a reliable, trustworthy and loving cat-sitter. I trust Katy completely to care for, feed and medicate our 16 year old cat. For many years Katy has taken care of him for us over long weekends to up to 3 weeks while we've been away overseas. She has always been there for us even when we've made last minute plans and over holidays. Our cat's special needs require being fed 2-3 times a day from a variety of foods which include frozen rabbit and/or chicken that needs to be defrosted ahead of time, cleaning his box every day while keeping a watchful eye he isn't blocked, and administering 2-3 medications up to twice a day. Katy goes above and beyond and truly does an amazing job, and she does so with love! Our cat does not like many people yet he has fallen in love with Katy and now runs to greet her at the door! I would absolutely recommend Katy to care for your cat if you are looking for someone who is responsible and caring too.

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.

Best pet sitter ever for my cat and two birds. Trustworthy, reliable and follows all instructions. However, more importantly, she treated my pets with such love. My cranky bird, who hated everyone, would fly over to her, and sit in her palm as she sang him to sleep.

Diane is a perfect cat sitter. Firstly, she's a very nice person. After meeting her I was absolutely sure she'll do all the best for my kitty. Secondly, I found the cat happy and not sad at all (regularly, he is moody after our absence). I'll definitely contact Diane again.

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.

Don't look any further! Peggy is just brilliant! Not only a great pet sitter but a lovely person. I have had many pet sitters in the past and I didn't know this kind of service was possible, she provides daily updates and cute pictures while we are away, she buys Rosita (a tiny chichi) yummy treats and gives her tons of love. She is so responsible, sweet, experienced (she has a big bunch of rescue pets herself) and caring that my dog misses her and of course she stops by once in a while to pet her and let her know she is still around. We feel very lucky to have her in our lives! :-)

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring 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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
