At a last minute we were looking for someone to come take care of our cat and dog for a full week while we were on vacation, because our regular dog walker could not. We had a chance to meet before we left and it clicked between her and our dog. She gave us regular updates every day, took good care of them, walked the dog and had quality time with them. She was conscientious about our requests and wasn't shy asking questions so she could give the best care she could. Our dog loves her to bits and we'll be sure to ask her services again!

Very happy with Nisara as our cat sitter! You can tell she takes this job very seriously. She is easy to communicate with and she really takes her time to get to know and take care of your pet. I could peacefully enjoy my vacation, knowing that our cat Maya was getting all the love and care she needed, for at least an hour a day! Make sure you have enough internet on your vacation though, because you're going to want to watch the cute videos of your pet every day :)
