Xiao was our first choice and remains our only one. We were charmed by her honesty and openness, as well as by her knowledge and skills. While reading her description, I had the impression that I was partially reading the story of my cat and me. I thought I had read all the books and watched all the documentaries about cats, but it turned out that after all this time I wasn't even halfway there! Xiao shows understanding and patience, and does not judge in advance, she gives every cat equal opportunities and time. After meeting her, it turned out that we had a completely different cat! Our picky cat got along with her immediately and accepted her as a pack of her team. Going on a trip and leaving your family member with someone like Xiao, with whom your pet feels even better than with you!, is not only a peace of mind, it is a reason for jealousy. Xiao is a true cat whisperer, and we wouldn't be surprised if she had the same attitude towards other animals. We will definitely use her cat sitting services more than once in the future and we recommend her to absolutely everyone. Familiarization meetings before departure, care during absence, meetings after return, carefully prepared plan, learning, fun, up-to-date news, photos, videos. Xiao is a very well-mannered, very high cultured person who is full of respect. And we will stick with our cat with her sessions, because they completely change the face and quality of our cat's life.

Marie-Laurence proved to be a reliable, trustworthy cat-sitter taking affectionate care of our cat during a 11 day Christmas leave. She replied instantly to all our communication from the outset. She was constructive and communicative throughout, offering solutions to issues along the way including setting up a first meeting, exchanges of keys etc. She arrived on time at the first meeting and created instant rapport both with the cat and its owners. She showed great experience with cats both in the way she approached Frici and also through the thoughtful questions she asked regarding feeding, cat health issues, feline behavior etc. She spent significantly more time than the agreed minimum. She took pictures and videos of our cat eating and playing and it was clear that she played with our cat long enough for him to feel well taken care of, even exhausted, in a good sense. Both our cat, Frici and we, the owners are very satisfied with the professional, yet fond cat care Mare-Laurence showcased and will be happy to book her again if needed in the future.
