Recently Amanda of the The Cat's Meow Pet Sitting Services looked after our much loved cat Arnold. Amanda came into our home morning and evening to tend to Arnold, changing his litter, feeding him, brushing him, and playing with him. Arnold seemed to take to her very quickly, which was a big relief to us. Amanda sent us pictures and an update on Arnold and our home frequently throughout our 3 week vacation. On return home all was well! Arnold was well cared for, and seemed his usual relaxed self, which was also a relief to us. When we have previously sent Arnold to a kennel, he was always out of sorts for a while, and not his usual healthy self when we have picked him up. This is the first time we have used Amanda's services and we are very impressed! It was so nice to come home to find our pet had been well looked after, even spoiled. He looked healthy and content. We will ask Amanda to look after Arnold again and again. The services she provided were professional, loving, and reliable. Amanda and Arnold have become good friends, and we would have no problem recommending her services to anyone else, and will surely be asking her to look after Arnold again!

I highly recommend Amanda for the important job of looking after your dogs and cats while you are away. Not only is Amanda a huge animal lover, but also very educated when it comes to animals and is a wonderful person. Before she moved back to Vancouver Island in 2015, she cared for my pets on several occasions. She has a gift of caring for all of her own animals with so much love, and she treats your pets just the same. So no worries!

Thank you so much for your detailed kitty reports. It is very nice to know how Lionel and Charlie behave while we are away. Thank you for the catmint and for playing with them and hiding treats! You take great care of them and we always really appreciate it. We also appreciate the communication and photos.
Thanks again! We'll give your name to anyone asking about home pet sitting in this area if that's ok! Good luck with your business!

I am happy to report that we have a great pet sitter in our area, and that is Amanda! There is NO ONE other than her that I would trust to care for my pets or even to come into my home. Amanda is honest, reliable, kind and generous. She will care for your pets like they are her own as well as make sure your home is secure while you are away. Amanda is one of the true animal lovers in this world, and like myself would and does do anything possible to help animals. You can count on her to care for your pets/s while you are away. Give her a call, you won't be sorry!

If you're considering an in home pet sitter then Amanda is truly the only choice!
Her professionalism and attention to level of detail has been unmatched in our experience.
We've been taking our pets to a kennel for the last 10 years, but since we moved to the Oceanside area and as they are getting old we decided to try having a sitter come to them (and Amanda was highly recommended to us).. we couldn't be happier!
Amanda sends us daily updates on how they're doing (including pictures), is comfortable giving our special needs dog and cat their medicine, and provides tons of play time and cuddles.
Perhaps most telling, she's won over the heart of our old male cat. He's incredibly shy with strangers and hides from everyone (my own family members have only seen him a handful of times in the last 12 years), but Amanda had him cuddling up to her after her 3rd visit.
We cannot say enough good about her or her services and feel so lucky to have found her!
THANK YOU AMANDA!

Amanda is awesome! So caring, you know your furbabies are in good hands! I totally recommend her to anyone who needs a pet sitter. I will NEVER put my pets in a kennel again!
Nathan and I really want to say thank you for watching the cats and dog over the past two weeks while we were on our honeymoon!!!
They are in such good hands while they are with you, we wouldnt be more comfortable with anyone else!! The flowers you left on our front porch are beautiful!
Thanks again Amanda you're a life saver!

I have known Amanda for over a decade now and have seen the loving and attentive care she has provided for her own beloved pets, as well as other people's including my own. Amanda has a passion for animals and through that has adopted many abandoned dogs and cats that would otherwise not have survived had it not been for her. She has the kindest heart and is incredibly caring and dependable. Her goal is to make sure your "furbabies" receive tons of love, play, and attention while you are on holidays and you can enjoy yourself stress free. I am NOT a fan of kennels, and how very nice it is that a service like Amanda's exists that allows your pets to remain home in comfortable and safe surroundings. My family and I give the highest recommendations for Amanda and The Cat's Meow Pet Sitting Services!

Thank you Amanda for looking after our Nahla and Roscoe. They adore you! And thank you for the treats and toys you bring them. You are a lovely person and we will have you in our home again and again. Just so your future clients know, we were originally referred to you by the operator of Bosley's pet store in Courtenay!

Amanda is AMAZING with our two boys! They are so happy and content when we come home they don't even care that we are back! It is such a relief knowing they are safe at home with someone amazing watching them. We always appreciate the peace of mind when it comes to our boys when we are gone so much. We highly recommend her. Thank you!
Amanda, you have a talent for this and it shows with how loved and happy the boys are when we get home!

I have had the pleasure and the luck of meeting Amanda, who is now my pet sitter for my cat Molly.
Amanda is professional, reliable, has great credentials and most of all provides loving care to my precious Molly.
She does a great job of keeping me informed of how Molly is doing and always follows up her visits with pictures.
The peace of mind I can enjoy when I am away that my cat is being so lovingly cared for in her own home is invaluable. I have complete confidence in Amanda"s judgment and reliability.
I feel very fortunate to know Amanda and would recommend her to anyone.
