We are so lucky that we found Mike to be our cat sitter during our holidays. Mike has a strong sense of responsibility as a pet sitter. He came to our place to visit out pet before confirmation of booking. During our holiday, Mike keeps updating us with our cat pictures so that we can enjoy our holiday with no worries. We would highly recommend Mike as a perfect pet sitter. Thanks, Mike!
