Talita has been absolutely AMAZING with our young cat Banou. From the very start, she took time to visit us at the house before the start of the cat-sitting period to familiarise herself with the cat and the house. She was extremely conscientious (checked if Banou was drinking enough, even got her mineral water). She sent pictures twice a day diligently, and videos too. She kept us updated so regularly it felt like we had not left. We were gone for 2 weeks (the longest we had ever been away from the cat) and we never had to worry once. Not only was our cat cuddled, she was brushed, eyes cleaned, and they played every day. We had another cat sitter before, and Talita's services just don't compare - 5 stars across the board! We could not be happier and will definitely be contacting Talita again when we need to leave for a few days.

Such a nice couple! Absolutely trustworthy and the communication was excellent. I have been using different pet sitter services for a while now, and this was the first time someone actually spent time with my cat while I was away, playing and letting her out a bit beside taking care of the necessities. I would 100% recommend and would book again!
