Thank you so much Runiche! I cannot express how grateful and delighted we are with the extraordinary cat sitting service provided by Runiche. She turned what could have been a stressful time away from our beloved cat Simba into an absolute delight. From the very beginning, Runiche showcased unparalleled professionalism and a genuine love for animals. Communication was seamless, with prompt responses to our inquiries and a comprehensive pre-sitting meeting that immediately put us at ease. Throughout our time away, Runiche went above and beyond. Her daily updates, accompanied by adorable pictures of Simba, not only reassured us but also made us feel like we were right there with him. The detailed feedback after each visit demonstrated Runiche's dedication to providing exceptional care. What sets Runiche apart is not just her reliability but also her passion for what she does. It's evident that she genuinely cares for the well-being and happiness of the pets under her care. Simba was not just looked after; he was showered with attention, affection, and even some playtime. Runiche's attention to detail is truly commendable. The litter box was immaculate, Simba's favorite spots were attended to, and she even took note of his preferences in terms of feeding and play. It's the little things that make all the difference, and Runiche excels at them. I wholeheartedly recommend Runiche to anyone seeking a cat sitter who goes above and beyond. Her dedication, reliability, and genuine love for animals make her the gold standard in pet care. We returned home to a happy and content Simba, and for that, we are forever grateful to Runiche. Thank you for making our time away stress-free and enjoyable!
