"Donna-Marie was an AMAZING catsitter. She took care of our cats for a week and we couldn't have imagined someone better for our quite shy babies. She doesn't only show up to take care of your cats' basic necessities (food, water, litter)- she goes above and beyond to make sure they're comfortable in her care. We really saw how much time and energy she put into every one of her visits, taking time to play with them, talk to them, and earn her trust. We received lots of pictures and videos every single day which put us at ease as we've never been away from them for this long. I could not recommend her higher for anyone who is in need of cat care!"

"Marion is the perfect cat sitter. I was worried about leaving my senior cat Coco for 10 days, after recently losing her feline life companion - but Marions visits kept her happy and I was updated daily on her state including photos. On my return I think Coco missed her visits! Do not hesitate to trust Marion with your pet."

"Meilin took great care of my two cats over 3 weeks with regular visits and photo/video updates. She also made sure they were kept happy and safe even when unforeseen circumstances arose with our schedules, and I plan on seeking her service again for our future holidays. Thank you Meilin!"

"If you are looking for an incredibly kind, communicative and overall lovely pet sitter I can highly recommend Yi. She looked after my cat Camilla for two weeks recently and made sure she was happy and healthy and I came home to a well cared for cat. I got daily updates with cute little videos which made it a much less stressful experience! "

"Jessica was a fantastic cat-sitter for Yoko. She sent daily, adorable photos that eased our minds while we were on holiday. Yoko looked happy and well-cared for in every picture. She is clearly an animal lover like us. We recommend her. 🌟"

"Jacinta was absolutely wonderful. Jacinta was reliable, friendly and incredible with our cats. We were sent cute updates each day and it really put our mind at ease knowing our cats were cared for. Our two cats are rescue cats and usually very timid and scared of strangers. They shy away and I honestly thought Jacinta would have to leave the food out for sprinkles because she would be too scared to eat in front of a new person. On the first day Jacinta sent me photos of sprinkles not hiding and on day 2 sprinkles was playing with her!!! I honestly could believe it, she has a real understanding for cats behaviours and we are so grateful to have Jacinta come and help us. Can’t recommend enough 🙏"

"Jenny was amazing! She was all of the things you want in a good pet sitter. Communicative, friendly, respectful of the house and most of all amazing with my cat, Kit. I would have absolutely no doubt in hiring her again, and I know Kit would feel the same way. In fact he might be mad if I don't! "

"Jacqui is a fantastic pet sitter. I booked her to come twice a day to feed my very shy cat and she was very gentle and kind with him. I arrived home and he was well fed and looked after. Clean litter box, Jacqui also left a lovely note for me. Would book again in a heartbeat. 10/10 😊🐈‍⬛"

"Adrian looked after our cat for 6 weeks while we were on holiday abroad. He has a great knowledge of cats and dogs and even provided us with some very useful tips on cat feeding. He visited us twice before the actual booking dates to familiarise himself with the cat as well as with the surroundings. He updated us with our cat's photos and details of her health after every visit, which was a great relief while we were away for too long. Adrian always checked with us whether something more needs to be done and even offered to buy food for the cat when the supply was running low. We found him to be trustworthy, punctual, systematic and has great compassion towards animals. We will definitely be looking forward to booking Adrian the next time we are away from home! We strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable and trustworthy house sitter or a caregiver for their pets. 5 stars!!! Thanks a lot, Adrian!! "
