Pet Sitting reviews in San Diego
Now we come to this week where I finally am in need of a pet sitter. I actually reply to his Feb 9 email asking him how to proceed as I'd like to hire his services for
He ignored my email and said that he can't guarantee anything if I don't sign a service agreement. Again, at this point, I still have no idea what his hourly rate is, what is his standard check-in service for a cat, etc. I'm going off of absolutely nothing. However, I am still worried I'll not be able to lock in the dates I need, so the next day when I am at a computer with a printer and scanner, I print out everything, put my exact same detailed writeup in the agreement, scan it, sign it and email it to him. He gets it and asked me to call him so we can go over the agreement.
I call him that day, as he requested, and he asks me about my cat. He also tells me that because I didn't give him a key in Feb that he's going to charge me $20, unless I mail it to him now. I thought that was absurd because in Feb he never said anything about demanding a key or being charged later.
On the agreement I signed, I had written down that my cat was about 18 years old. I also had written down that he's got poor vision and poor hearing and that he's been put on the K/D diet for kidneys. However, I didn't expect any special care because of these things, it was purely to inform him of the "details" he had asked for. Also, I had written down common sense type things because, again,
In the course of that conversation
The phone conversation was very lengthy, throughout the entire call I had trouble getting a word in and
Through out the call, I was a little confused if
That afternoon he sends me the signed service agreement (both our signatures) and an invoice for 6 days of service 1.5 hours of "extensive care" twice a day for a total of $550. I noticed that I was billed $50 per 1.5 hours. When he came in Feb, he told me that overnight stays where $35 and hourly was a little cheaper than that per hour. So when I got the invoice, I was surprised it listed "extensive care" and that it was so expensive. I emailed him right away and asked how much his hourly rate is and asked if it would just be cheaper to have overnights instead of checking in on him morning and night. He refers to his "original estimate" as what I assume was him verbally telling me his rates back in February.
