Mary is cat sitting for me as I write this review. She has been updating me twice daily with a report and pictures. I feel so much peace knowing my 2 fur babies are being fed, cared for, played with, and loved on. I will be using her again for sure on my upcoming trips.Feb 16, 2020Verified
Mary is great! She is very responsive and asks thorough questions in the first meeting. She sends pictures and updates of every visit. I’ve never left my animals with a sitting service, but her updates made me feel calm and comfortable with them in her care.Sep 13, 2019Verified
Mary was our very first pet sitter! We have a young ferret, older cat, six fish, AND many, many plants. She was wonderful with all of our critters and they seemed to feel the same about her :) Mary even tended to our plants which was a plus! We have had such an outstanding experience and are grateful to have found her-Would highly, highly recommend!!Nov 26, 2019Verified
Mary was excellent. She was available on short notice, flexible and willing to work with my possible schedule changes, helpful in advising me on what I needed, and a superb communicator while I was gone. She not only took great care of my cats, but she also brought in my mail and put my garbage out for collection--both of which are less convenient than one might think. I would never hesitate to use her services in the future.Jan 8, 2020Verified

This includes my presence from about 7 at night to 7 in the morning (though these times can be tailored to your needs), and the evening and morning feeding, walking and specific routines we decide on. Midday walks and visits are charged at the regular price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We can talk on the phone. If you want to proceed, we set up a no-cost meet-and-greet with you and your dog or cat and owners. It's a chance to ask questions and get to know one another. If it's a good fit, then we can make arrangements for the pet sitting or dog walking, including times, payment and instructions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a lifelong dog owner. Through friends and family, I've been around cats all my life. I have been doing pet sitting and dog walking as a business for 3 years. I am insured through Pet Sitters Associates and I'm certified in pet CPR and first aid.
