Testimonials

Excellent Sitters

We were fortunate enough to meet David and Sabine last year while they were in Scotland doing another sit. We knew when we first met them they would be perfect sitters for our gang. We were right!. Communication with them before the sit was easy. They arrived as planned and we felt comfortable leaving our house and pets with them. We received regular updates and pictures showing the pets looking very relaxed! Despite our return not being as we had planned due to the current airport problems, David and Sabine waited until we eventually got home. We arrived back to an immaculate house, grass cut and relaxed and happy pets. David even fixed our wobbly kitchen tap! I would have no hesitation in recommending David and Sabine as house sitters. We have already booked them for next year!!

Very nice Catlovers

I liked Sabine and David right from the start when they wrote to me on my Sitter appeal for October. After the first messages it was clear that they should become our sitters. Unfortunately we could only book our holiday at relatively short notice and hope that everything works out. Because in Corona times everything is different than usual. Fortunately everything went well and Sabine and David arrived one day before our flight. We had a very pleasant and funny evening where we discussed most of the things that are important and the two had to know for their sit. David immediately played with the braver cats (not all of them come out right away) and tried to get to know them. After a short time even our shy cats came out and welcomed Sabine and David. The next day we went to the airport with a good feeling that our cats are well taken care of. We were in contact with Sabine almost daily, who kept us informed about our cats. We could enjoy our holiday with peace of mind. Sabine and David left our flat in the morning, as we had discussed, the day we came back. All cats were fine and our flat was clean and tidy. They even took away the plastic rubbish, which we normally take care of, as it is awkward. We would love to welcome them back here anytime! Many thanks, Sabine and David!
