We'd had what we felt was a decline in attentiveness from our long-time cat sitter and I put out a request for recommendations to my neighbors via Nextdoor.com.

Tank was recommended from

and I looked up reviews on Angie's List, emailed for a quote and scheduled pet sitting for our two cats....More />

came and met the cats and picked up a key. He asked about housesitting needs, not just cat care, which I hadn't thought to consider but greatly appreciated.

brought in our mail daily and watered a few plants in addition to giving the cats water, keeping their food full, and scooping their litter box.
I understand from
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
that the cats were very shy and didn't get much of the benefit of human contact while we were out of town, but they were much less anti-social than they had been in the past when we would come home, which was one of the reasons we felt like it might be time for a switch in cat sitters - we were concerned that they weren't interacting with anyone enough while we were gone and there had been behavioral problems surfacing when we returned home with our previous long-time sitter.
One of the things that we really noticed was that the house didn't smell at all like cat box in the slightest bit when we came home. *That* is a very, very nice welcome home after a long vacation.

I recently had occasion to use
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
Service while on vacation in another state, and I couldn't be happier with the service. "Set up" is easy; when you first contact them, you'll be asked to fill out a short form (very basic stuff; if you know whether your pet is a dog or a cat, you'll be fine). They will schedule a quick "getting to know you" visit before the dates of the actual petsitting, during which they meet with your pet and familiarize themselves with where you keep all of your pet supplies; they also make sure you have a lockbox for your door key (and if you don't have one, they can make one available to you). The petsitting itself is accompanied by a "report card," one for each visit the petsitter makes, keeping you up to date on how your pet fared while you were away (I learned that my cat may be a little more standoffish than I realized ... go figure). All in all, a very professional service with top-notch staff who will take good care of your critters.

We travel a lot and are sometimes gone for over a week at a time. While I don't like to leave my little old girl for that long I know that

,
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
will love her and take great care of her. They send me texts and pictures to let me see how much fun they're having,They are all so sweet and kind to my dog that it eases the guilt a little. In addition to great pet care they also bring in the mail, water the plants and turn the lights on. They're very professional; requiring detailed information about travel, contact phone numbers, pet medications and vet information.They write a little recap of every visit (even if it's 3x a day). My dog genuinely enjoys her time with the folks at

and I believe the feeling is mutual. There are less expensive pet sitters around but
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked

I love
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
very much. I give them an A+ rating. I have nothing but positive and good things to say about my experience with the team. I love the very personal touch and customer service they provide. I travel for business and also was relocating so things are stressful enough, but they made me feel peace of mind with taking care of my cat. I also used them for extending periods of times like 2 weeks and more on a couple occasions. So I can say with experience I'm definitely impressed with the quality of service and kindness they took in taking care of my cat. I also like the status report at the end to tell me how things went when I returned from my trips. This is a personable, professional service and you can tell they genuinely care about what they do to help others.

We have used
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
for some time without incident. She has always been timely and both available and accessible. We would continue to use her except that the last time she was in our home, we had some damage to a grandfather clock which had to have been caused by somebody handling it. There was nobody else with access to the house. We cannot prove that the firm was responsible, nor do we want to make accusations, but the evidence to us is strong. The excuse was "well, someone must have broken into our home and damaged the chimes and pendulum on our clock." We find this excuse ludicrous because we set our alarm system (remotely) and unset it daily so she could get in. There was never any evidence of a break-in.

It is such a relief to find a pet sitter like
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and know that they are going to take excellent care of my dog. I've used
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
for one visit pet sitting and for multiple day visits and always felt confident that my dog, Mia, was going to be in good hands. When I've had to travel for work and been out of the state, it's so comforting to get text messages and daily updates from the sitter about how Mia is doing. Mia is getting old enough that doggie day care doesn't work well for her anymore so I was worried about finding another option. Glad I found

. Although this service isn't inexpensive, I think the fact that I can relax and not worry about my dog when I'm away makes it well worth it.

It did not go well at all.
We entrusted our 8 cats and our personal home to her care - she assured us she'd care for them and our home as if they/it "were her own". However, upon arriving home we were horrified to discover:
1. She had administered the wrong medication to our cat with a cardiomyopothy the entire time - despite our extensive instructions, both written and verbal; despite my filling out her businesses' detailed questionnaire at her request; despite detailed instructions for medication administration written underneath his picture posted beside his bedroom door.
2. We also have a cat who suffers from obstipation who needs to be medicated twice a day - he was severely constipated when we got home. Because of the situation listed above naturally we're wondering if he received the appropriate medication at the instructed times of day.
3. The cat's rooms were very messy and reeked of urine (the pee pads had not been changed in the cat's room referenced in No. 1 and by her own admission she changed them only 2 times the entire time she was there (she was asked to change them daily because they NEED to be changed daily). Additionally, there were other places throughout the house where the cats had messed that she hadn't cleaned up.
4. None of the litter boxes had been cleaned and had quite a lot of excrement in them - even though we asked her to clean them several times throughout the day and she had advance notice of when we would be arriving back home.
5. The water containers were well below where the cats could reach the water and were not filled to the brim as instructed (thank goodness we had automatic fountains as back-up).
6. The water bowls outside were bone dry (the temperatures were quite warm while she was there).
7. By her own admission she "didn't sit outside with them even once" - an indication to us that perhaps she didn't keep them company and play with them as we asked and she assured us she would. We'll never know.
Additionally, based on the information of our housekeeper who was there to clean and check on things in our absence,
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
did not care for our home in the
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
manner she assured us she would:
1. She moved an extraordinary amount of her personal things into our home without our knowledge or permission and apparently used our home as her personal extended stay/storage unit.
2. She moved our furniture/personal belongings around and had not replaced them before we arrived home, even though she had ample notice of our arrival time.
3. She did not clean up after herself or the cats - we have a housekeeper and did not expect her to be one, however, we did ask that she keep things picked up so the housekeeper could do her job. She did not: her belongings were strewn all over the house, there were food crumbs and purple stuff spilled throughout the house including in the refrigerator, all over the desk where my husband's business computer is, and in the living room in front of the TV and on our leather furniture; there were several cat messes in the house that she did not bother to clean up.
In our experience her house/pet sitting services were far from "
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked

We were in the
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
for a new pet sitter and were very happy to see someone highly rated on
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
List who is also based in Evanston, where we live. I called her twice and both times I left a message explaining what we wanted and the dates we would need a sitter. No response whatsoever. Nothing. We can understand that someone may not be available for the dates we want or that there is an issue or a problem. But we find it completely unprofessional, if not inexcusable, that someone in a service business would not have the
Ruskin Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
courtesy to even return a call. Once, we could understand that a message got lost. Not twice.
