I was very happy with the care and attention to detail Siobhan took looking after my two cats. My older cat is 21, has to have medications for her heart, and has lost a lot of weight and become poorly when I’ve gone away before leaving them with another pet sitter. For this reason I’m nervous of finding a new pet sitter for them. My usual pet sitter has just moved away from Bristol so this was Siobhan’s first time with my cats. I was happy to return from my trip away to two very happy healthy cats. Siobhan was excellent at answering all my queries and put my mind at ease with detailed text and picture updates after each visit. This really was exactly what I needed so I could enjoy my time away and not worry about the cats care. She spent time getting to know them both and giving them attention and play as well as all the necessary other jobs such as water, food and litter tray. Top marks! Highly recommended. I’m a cat sitter as well so I shall be recommending her to my clients when I’m not available for them!

We cannot recommend Anita highly enough as a pet sitter and how happy we are that our two cats are looked after so well when we are away on holiday. One of our cats is very elderly and has to have have various medications through the day and Anita deals with this all in her stride. She also sends up updates everyday and photo's of how our cats are getting along which is always very reassuring and means that we can totally relax while we are away. Anita will always be our first choice as a pet sitter for our holidays knowing our cats are in very safe hands.
