We could only make very last minute plans for our travels and needed a cat sitter for our two cats Jon and James. Ale was very quick to respond to our request even while she was away from home herself at the time of the request. She was very open and flexible to meet us virtually and to suggest ways to hand over the keys. During the time that she was cat sitting we have received very nice messages including pictures and videos to show that they were doing fine! Also we loved that she read a book with the boys and were sure they almost loved her more by the end of the week than they love us! I couldn’t recommend Ale enough if you are looking for a cat sitter, she has been absolutely amazing - thanks again Ale!

Tainá and Rodrigo are by far the best and most kind cat sitters we have ever met (after years of cat sitting with different people). They took care of our cat for almost one month and did everything to make her feel safe and less lonely. They played with her and even brought her a toy. They are very communicative and kept sending us every day pictures and videos, informing us about how our cat feels and what she does when they get to our home. I can't thank them enough, they are a really amazing couple - and an excellent choice if you are looking for someone friendly and reliable who really loves pets. Absolutely recommended, they deserve more than 5 stars!
