Karen is professional, courteous and is a great pet/house sitter. My two dogs and two cats were well taken care of while I was on my trip. She charges by each 24 hour period, and stayed at my house the whole time I was gone. It was great because she cleaned up my backyard after the dogs, cleaned litter boxes and took the dogs for walks. My neighbor even verified many times a day. That made me happy. She watered my plants, hosed my patio, picked up my mail, newspapers and packages. She is trustworthy and will stay at your house bringing her own food and linens placed over yours. My house was sparkling clean when I got home and my pets were relaxed too. That gave me peace of mind. I plan to hire Karen Cares again when I need to travel. I'm so glad I found her on here. Nice person and she did what she said she would do.
