Testimonials from clients about our cat sitting services
Paws and Claws cat sitting services came to our attention and highly recommended by the breeder of our cats, and we always have a great experience when we go away. Not only does she come daily to our house to feed our "babies" and clean their litter boxes, but she joyfully attended to their well being as well, by playing with them and spending lots of quality time with each of them. Our oldest cat absolutely adores our cat sitter and would seek her attention all the time to sit with her and be petted. While we are away, our cat sitter would keep in touch with us via Facebook messenger on a regular basis, telling us how the cats were doing, sending us mini videos and pics of them. It was really lovely and made us feel close to our cats, although a whole ocean separated us from them. In addition, the cat sitter would check our house daily to make sure that everything was alright. One time when a small flood occurred in the basement, she dealt with it very skillfully and informed us about the problem immediately. We are very lucky to have such an amazing cat sitter and to know that we can rely on her to look after our cats when needed is a blessing. Without hesitation, we are very happy to recommend! (Happy client of over 4+ years) - Dorota W
I am a very happy client of both Paws and Claws grooming and cat sitting! My cats get groomed regularly by the girls and when I was desperate for a cat sitter 8 years ago they came to my rescue. Having a home in Florida sometimes meant sudden trips back and forth. Lucky for me, I always know who I could call to watch my beautiful girls! Paws and Claws is defiantly a name you can trust! - Silva
