Experience with animals and own pets

My fur baby’s name is Jupiter. He is a cat who does not meow, but squeaks instead. Whenever I come home, he will be waiting at the door ready to rub himself up against me, and then roll over onto his back so that I can give him tummy scratches. It is our little ritual, and one that releases the tension from a stressful day.

Growing up, we had many pets. Our dogs, Monty (Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Boerboel cross) and Twinkle (Anatolian Shepherd and Alsatian cross), reached the ripe old ages of 14 and 13, respectively. My heart melts at the sight of animals, so I do volunteer work at the Centurion SPCA whenever I have an opportunity to.

This person is a friend of a friend of mine, and has pet sat for me on two occasions. She was very neat, clean and reliable. She made sure the pets were well taken care of and she contacted me with updates. I'd recommend her as a pet sitter, especially because I have 3 pets above 14 years old that all take a variety of medication and she looked after them with no problems.

Additional notes:

The house was immaculately well taken care of and the cat was happy and loving throughout our time away. Gabby kept in touch with us and sent us regular updates and photos of our cat. Our cat happily bonded with her as a secondary cat slave and we were ecstatic with all of the love and careful attention that Gabby contributed. She takes her responsibilities very seriously.
