    Response to Not reliable

    the client booked for an overnight

    and there was a time frame that

    was not working and I could see a conflict so I contacted her asap. I told

    her I would be too late for sit and apologized for the issue. I gave her 3 resources

    for ON sitting and she had 2 weeks notice to find a sitter. 2 weeks is still

    time to find someone and I wished her

    well, Rose Connolly

    Not reliable

    I contacted Rose in early July to schedule an overnight stay with my two dogs in late August. She said she was available so I scheduled two meetings (basically for the dogs and her to meet and make sure everyone was comfortable with each other). Everything seemed fine, and she put me on her schedule and gave me a contract showing me what she would do during her stay. Tonight, two weeks before the overnight stay, she called to cancel, saying she was slammed and had too many other pet sitting obligations to come for her scheduled stay! Since it is the height of vacation season, it has been hard to find a replacement. Moreover, I wasted the money on the meet and greets since I wouldn't have needed them if I knew she wasn't available. I am very disappointed and disgusted by her unreliable behavior.

    job, gave us daily updates and our pets were happy

    Response To K in Gold River

    This family hired me to take care of several cats. As soon as owners left several cats threw up and I notified

    the owners immediately. One older cat was hardly eating and I was told to move the food from room to room

    for the cat which I did. It did eat some food and this was communicated to the owners at once. I told them

    I cannot force an animal to eat. The litter boxes were cleaned daily and verified on a sheet for the owner. They accused me of having some extra person in their house as I did a overnight and no one else entered the residence. They also told me I stole their newspapers

    and they were left on the kitchen counter before I left the home. They could not understand why their animals

    were sick and I told them animals can be thrown off when the owners leave and this is quite common. I had their

    house keys and they were returned to them that evening. Both husband and wife were belligerent with me and I told them I would not offer any future services to them. The entire incident was documented in their client file. Every effort was made to make them happy and treat them in a respectful manner.

    Very Disappointing

    We hired Rose to care for our three older kitties. She was instructed to monitor each cat during feedings as one will try to eat all of the other's food. We also gave clear instructions about scooping out and cleaning around the litter box twice a day. We paid Rose $65 per night to stay in our home to do these tasks as well as bring in our daily paper. Not only did she just dump large amounts of food in bowls, the litter boxes had not been scooped and the newspaper was sitting right by the front door she exited. Water bowls also appeared dirty. Very lazy and disrespectful. We are very disappointed and feel used. I guess she was willing to take our money (now we know why we were required to pay before we left) without doing a decent job.
