Well Kathy came to my house and all went well And we hired her When it came time for her to come and make sure it was ok that when we aren’t home Got a text saying got into an accident broke her wrist. When she told me the same story That she could not take my job on. Wow that was bad. To cancel on someone like that. Well didn’t get good ref anyway. Leaves at 8 am does not return till 5 pm That’s not house sitting. Ya I would not hire. Make plans then to be lied to.Nov 2, 2017Affordable Pet Sitting - Kathy Thorpe's reply
I am truly sorry you feel betrayed. That was certainly not my intention. We did not have a definite appointment set up for a trial "overnight", so there was no "cancellation" necessary. It would not be fair to you if I cared for your 4 dogs, cat and your home with a broken wrist. In the future, I will be sure to clarify the cause of becoming unavailable. I appreciate your feedback and will work on my communication skills.
Kathy was excellent kept us informed on how our pet was the entire time we were gone on our vacation. We highly recommend her service.Nov 6, 2015Verified
Kathy has been caring for my Rottie and Pittie for a few months now. I can not say enough how grateful I am to have found her. Knowing I have a reliable person caring for them. The rotties has some medical issues and knowing her she is getting her meds when she is supposed to definitely puts my mind at ease while I'm at work. I would highly recommend her.Aug 18, 2014Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally, I charge $55.00 per overnight. If a visit is necessary, I charge $20.00 per 1 hour visit
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I communicate (texting, email, or telephone) daily updates with my clients. I bring all my own supplies: food, sleeping bag etc. I always require my clients to provide a Rabies Certificate, veterinarian information, contact numbers, location of fire extinguisher, and all info regarding their pets' needs and habits. I appreciate a cash payment at the beginning of my service. Checks are also acceptable. I send an invoice to each client prior to the start date for them to review.
