Critter Sitters Inc., 8/12/2015

Andrea is great with our cats. She has taken care of our 4-legged kids for year. They look forward to her visits, and we can relax knowing they are well cared for.


Fabulous service from Carol, 8/02/2015

We have been using Carol with Critter Sitters for 8 years. Our cats love her and she is extremely reliable. She has never been unavailable when we have called - even around the holidays. When one... of our cats was sick, she agreed to come twice a day to check on him. She has even helped us with things we forget while we are away, as well as bringing in our mail and newspapers while she is visiting our cats. Highly recommend her!!

Clare knows cats!

Clare was easily the best cat-sitter we've ever hired and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She was great with our cats, even the cranky one, and even gave us some ideas about how to continue giving them the best care. I strongly recommend her.

Carol is terrific!

We've been working with Carol for almost two years now - she's fantastic! Reliable, professional, friendly, easy to get in touch with - plus our cat loves her. Also more than accommodating if/when something unexpected happens - like a day-long flight delay! We know that our cat and our home are always in good hands while we're away - thanks, Carol!

Excellent Care!

I had a kitty diagnosed with diabetes. My regular sitter was not comfortable with giving shots so I contacted Critter Sitters. I was put in touch with Andrea. What a relief! She takes such good care of my herd (in addition to the diabetic, I have a couple of leaky old ladies and one allergy prone kid). On top of the fantastic care my kids get, Andrea is able to put up with my hectic last minute scheduling and changes. I am so lucky to have found her!

Great Experience

I was worried about leaving my cat since he had just started getting insulin shots twice a day. My previous sitter was not comfortable giving him shots. I searched the internet and found Critter Sitters. I was referred to Andera, which lived close by. She was wonderful. She even sent me text to let me know how my cat was doing. Now I can leave him and not worry knowing Andera will be there to care for him.

better than doggie daycare

Elisa at critter sitters was the best choice we could have made! She loves kozmo and took great care of him. She even assisted during emergencies! No daycare will care for your animal like she will.

Janet Cypher is Great

We have enjoyed working with Janet and the Critter Sitter team. Equally, we've found that Carol and the admin team work hard to ensure customer satisfaction and ease of service. We can see why Critter Sitters has won awards.

Alan Gordon is phenomenal

Alan was my pet sitter for over a year. He was absolutely wonderful with my dog, Buddy. Alan is extremely organized, efficient and was never late for scheduled visits. My dog had many health issues during the time Alan took care of Buddy, and Alan was so particular and diligent in following all the instructions for Buddy's care. Buddy was in wonderful hands with Alan. Some times I would be home when Alan arrived and Buddy would get so excited to see Alan. Alan has a very warm, caring demeanor and it comes across in his interaction with animals, too.

Flowery Branch area Critter Sitters

Glad we decided to try Critter Sitters. Our dogs get to stay in the comfort of their home instead of going to a kennel! We're happy and they are happy! Andrea does a great job taking care of our 2 canine kids!

Highly recommend

I have been using Ian Robbins with Critter Sitters for several years now and I can not say enough good things about him and the Critter Sitter service. It really gives me peace of mind that someone I trust is taking care of my fur child when I am away.

Critter Sitters' Clare Costello to the rescue!

Last Summer, one of my two cats became ill and now requires medicine twice a day. Traveling, or even taking a day trip weren't an option until we found Clare Costello. She has cared for our cats three times now and we are more amazed by her each time. First, she came over to learn the details of our home and to meet the cats. She is meticulous and thorough and truly loves animals. She spoils the kitties with toys and treats, so much so that they are often happier when we get home, than when we left them. Clare is responsive, reliable, and a total life saver. Most importantly, the peace of mind she provides is invaluable. Critter Sitters and Clare Costello are the best.
