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!

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!

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!

My cat Marcy had a wonderful time while I was away with plenty of play, new toys and lots of cuddles.  I had no worries after meeting Amanda.  She sent daily photos and an update of my cat's fun time so I knew she was having as good a week as I was!  Amanda is great with animals, my sometimes timid kitty just loved her!

Amanda LOVES what she does and treats her pet sitting business in a professional manner.  I never have to worry about my cats when we are away!  We owe her sooooooo much - without her we could never do our getaways!  Thank you Amanda for all you do!  Zoe & Lucy appreciate you too!

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!

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 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 owner/operator of Bosley's pet store in Courtenay who spoke very fondly of you!

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.

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!

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 many 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.

~Sue Randolph and Lorne Janzen and Bandit, Qualicum Bay, BC

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!!

I am so glad to have met Amanda.  We can leave for a few days or a few weeks knowing that our cat Mohelie is happy and pampered!  She loves the toys that Amanda brings her, and Mohelie is always in great shape when we come back.  Amanda is very thorough when she meets new clients, is on top of everything, and was a great help when we had some issues with the house once while we were away.  I am a local veterinarian and I highly recommend her!

Amanda looked after my kitty for 2 months straight in my home while I was in Hong Kong and also many times for a few days here and there.  Thank you Amanda very much!  Katie is very lucky to have you!  You are a Godsend.

Amanda has been coming over weekly for over three years to spend time with my rottweiler and I couldn't be more thankful.  I highly recommend her and her services.  She is very professional and has built a very special relationship with my dog.  If you're looking for a great pet sitter, look no further.  Thank you 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 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!

Having Amanda take care of my pets was the best decision I ever made.  At our meet and greet I knew my pets and home would be in safe hands.  Amanda took care of my dog Kodah and my cat Joey (since he was a tiny kitten) several times a week for a year until I moved.  In that year, she became part of our wee family and my close friend.  I always got daily updates of my furbabies playing outside or snuggling indoors with her.  She went above and beyond with tidying up after my pets and after me too!  Although its too bad I had to move away from her service area, its not too far to stay great friends!

Since I've met Amanda I no longer have to worry about my cats.  She is very reliable and responsible, loves my cats as if they were hers, gives them cuddles, plays with them, and brings them new toys and treats.  They love her and so do I!  Things always go smoothly when Amanda comes to visit!  Amanda also does lots of little "extras" that other pet sitters don't do, for no charge.  I always know cats are in awesome hands and being taken care of well.  She keeps me updated after each visit and sends pictures too!  Best pet sitter I've ever had.

Amanda is the best cat sitter we have ever had.  And I'm sure the cats feel the same way!  I never have to worry about my house or cats.  I love it that Amanda sends me pics and updates every day.  I highly recommend Amanda, she's a pleasure to deal with!

Amanda is a terrific pet sitter!!  My cat Ramses absolutely adores her and I am able to travel with ease knowing that he is lovingly cared for.  Amanda also takes amazing pictures of pets.  She is a very talented cat whisperer!

Just returned from a long holiday.  Amanda was our cat sitter for 10 days and she was wonderful!!!  She did a pre-trip meeting, and she was very organized, professional, personable, and a "natural" with our cat.  She sent photos every day of our kitty playing with toys she had brought over, and he was always all brushed up and looking great!  She was very reassuring, and we were able to completely relax on our holiday, not worrying about anything with her here!  Very good communication about our cat and house.  We highly recommend Amanda, she is a true gem, and we were lucky to have her!  Will pass her name along to anyone we know looking for fabulous pet sitting!

Amanda took excellent care of my cat Jack while I was away on vacation.  Jack is a very timid guy but she was able to coax him out from under the bed in just a couple of days!  Jack was in great spirits when I got back, although I think he missed his new bestie Amanda!  It was originally supposed to be a 19 day trip but when I got sick and had to extend my stay, Amanda was able to keep caring for Jack until I returned!  Thanks Amanda!  Jack is looking forward to your visits in September when I take my next trip!

Amanda did an amazing job taking care of our pets and home while we were away. We came home to happy kitties and a clean house. We received regular updates while we were away and if there was a concern she would ask for advice. She was great making sure our kitties received their medication and she even picked up the dead mice brought in from outside and took our garbage to the curb. I highly recommend Amanda for any one looking for pet sitting services.

Incredible piece of mind when Amanda is looking after our cats. We get wonderful updates with pictures after her visits and she genuinely loves our fur balls and cares for them beyond expectations! Before using Amanda, we came home to pretty stressed out cats when we were away. Now we come home to happy, pampered kitties who have spent quality time with a best friend. I can’t recommend her enough!!
