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!

Hi Amanda!
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!
~Erin & Doug Sellers, Fanny Bay, BC~
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!
~Debbie and Don Fields, Deep Bay, BC
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.

~Lexie Lambert & Molly, Parksville, BC~

Thank you Amanda for always taking such great care of my "kids".  I have never before felt comfortable leaving them in other's care but I trust you fully with them and they love your visits!

Our kitties just love Amanda and so do we.  She is very professional and leaves our home clean and secure, and always sends us daily updates and photos.  It's such a nice change for us to be comfortable going away and not worrying about things at home!

We have used The Cat's Meow Pet Sitting Services several times and been 100% satisfied with the very professional services offered by Amanda!  We have no concerns when we leave our pet in her care.  Bandit gets spoiled.....he barely misses us when we leave him lol!  I would recommend her services to anyone.

Lilly had the royal treatment provided by the Cat's Meow Pet Sitting Services.  Amanda treated Lilly like the Queen she thinks she is and even trimmed her toenails.  Amanda's service is so perfect because Lilly just stays home and relaxes and is pampered and catered to by Amanda.  Amanda lets you know how your furbaby is doing and sends pictures daily to let you know they are alright.  THANKS AMANDA!

Hi Amanda!  The dogs are so happy and so am I.  Thank you so much for taking care of them!

I highly recommend Amanda and her pet sitting service.  We LOVE our furbabies and we are also pretty private people so having a stranger come into our home while we were away was unsettling to us.  Amanda's professionalism at our meet and greet, however, completely put us at ease.  She was well prepared and her attention to detail was above par.  While we were away the daily report we received was amazing!  We got pictures and a little update to see our babies and put our mind at ease that they were doing ok.  Upon return home the final report and welcome home treats were an unexpected pleasant surprise and our cats were clearly well taken care of.  We are a younger couple in our 30s with a young family and limited budget.  Amanda's rates were extremely reasonable, amazing value for money, and easily added in to the vacation expenses.  My husband and I both work in customer service and can attest that the level of service she provided is beyond reproach.  10 out of 10 and 5 STARS!!!!  Thank you Amanda, we are repeat clients for life!

I have known Amanda for over 30 yrs.  She is kind and loving, a good friend!!  I recently hired her to look after  my fur-babes for 8 days (2 cats and 1 dog).  I was so pleased with her attention to detail about my pets!  Put my mind at ease!!!!  She spent lots of time with all 3 of them!!  They loved her!!  Amanda was on time with meals, cuddles, grooming, clean up, etc...!  I couldn't have gone away without her!! My pets were content!!  I HIGHLY recommend her business!!! Thank you again Amanda!!

This was my first time using The Cats Meow Pet Sitting Services, and I have nothing but good things to say! Amanda is super sweet and professional. She put my mind at ease almost instantly upon meeting her and introducing her to my fur babies. Both of my dogs love her and I could tell they had the best time while I was away! 😊 For me, the service Amanda provides is truly invaluable. To be able to trust someone with my babies is one thing but to also be able to trust her with the care of my home and all of its contents is AMAZING! I 100% recommend her to anyone looking for someone to love your fur babies as much as you do while you are away. Keep up the great work Amanda!
