As we were leaving earlier than she could get down we met to exchange keys. My cats true to form managed to knock over and break stuff the first night. She was upset and let us know straight away with photos. I felt bad for her but she took it in her stride. We got regular updates.

“Ann is the best house and pet sitter we’ve had to date! From first contact, Ann was extremely personable, and we felt instantly comfortable leaving our house and pets in her care.
She went to the extra effort of coming to meet the pets ahead of the sit so they could get to know her, and it was evident that she is an animal lover who would care for our dogs as if they were her own. Ann was proactive in asking about what was needed for both the boys and the house, touching on things I hadn’t even thought to mention/cover.
While away, Ann kept us up-to-date with the house and pets, and it was reassuring to know everything was going well. She even stayed late on the day of our return to ensure the boys were fed at their usual meal time. Once home, the house was immaculate (probably better than we left it!), and I know the boys loved her because they are still looking for her in the guest room 😉
Next time I need a house/pet sitter I will contact Ann. But I better get in quick because she’s hugely popular – I can totally see why 🙂 Thanks Ann.” Ellen and Adam, Nudgee Q
