Pet Sitting in Sandy Springs, 1/20/2015

Heather took care of my cat for a 4 day weekend trip. She was very thorough in her review of my expectations and everything went well as expected. I recently became a dog owner too, so I will be... contacting Heather for my next trip!

awesome experience! highly recommend!, 12/22/2014

We started using the Critter Sitter services just a few months ago when we started traveling more frequently. Sydney does better with staying in her usual routine and we also didn't want to pay the... more expensive fees for boarding since we do travel so frequently now. Our critter sitter assigned to us was Billie in the Lithia Springs area. She is just awesome and our lab, Sydney, loves her! We couldn't be happier with the experience so far. Billie sends us texts and pics of Sydney during her visit and also writes a detailed daily journal so we know our dog played and ate normally while we were out of town. I'd highly recommend using Critter Sitters, especially Billie if you're in her area!

Aged cat (barfy) cat owners!

We have used Heather from Critter Sitters and our cats love her. They are 18 plus years and very needy. Heather combs them, gives them their medications, cleans up after them if they vomit, cleans the litter box, feeds them and takes the time to give them some love. She is a great communicator and sends updates regarding your pet which is reassuring. She will also pick up your mail and let you know if there are any house concerns. We had a sprinkler issue which she took care of in our absence. We highly recommend Critter Sitter/Heather! We are in the Sandy Springs Dunwoody area.

Peace of mind!!

Ms. Clare is wonderful, we love her! More importantly our dog Pettie loves her. She does pick up and drop off. When we go on a day trip we know he is in excellent hands and having as much fun as we are. He is delivered back home exhausted from a day of fun with his friends! Can't say enough about her but she has liberated us!!!!
