Rose is the best pet sitter we have ever had. We have 5 cats and one in particular is a handful. We had to start boarding him during our trips because our last sitter couldn't handle him. I am very detailed when it comes to my cats needs and have felt with our past sitters that I was overdoing it. I would leave detailed notes and got the feeling they didn't even read them. With Rose, she met with us for over 2 hours for our consultation and we could tell right away that she takes her job very seriously. She considered our 'problem child/cat' a challenge and I am amazed at how well she did with him. From giving him pills to brushing his sensitive, arthritic areas she really took care of him above and beyond what we expected. I think she did better than we do. :) We took a trip overseas for 2 weeks and it was the first trip I've taken where I really didn't worry like I normally do. She sent me regular updates via email. What I appreciated the most is she really got to know all 5 of the cats with their quirks and personalities and it showed in the updates. With past pet sitters, I felt like I was bothering them. With Rose, we laughed and smiled at her updates. She truly cares about the animals like they are her own. We cannot say enough about what a wonderful job she did and we are most grateful to have found her. Thank you Rose!!
