Our sitters all have years of experience volunteering at shelters, owning cats themselves, and even working with other cat sitting companies. They are all background checked, bonded, and trained by us. They will absolutely deliver the same level of service as the owners deliver. We have never received anything but praise for the wonderful sitters on our staff.
