The Absolute Best Care For Your Pets


Mary knows firsthand that it is hard to leave your pets when you have to be gone for business or pleasure. Being a teacher, she enjoyed being able to travel during the summer. While she was away, she always had a pet sitter because she knew her furry kids would be much happier and less-stressed at home. After years of pet sitting for friends, she decided to leave teaching and started a pet-sitting business so she could provide this valuable service to other pet owners.

Benefits of Pet Sitting

For most pet owners, pets are a part of the family. As a devoted pet parent, you want the best care for your pet. Don’t trust your pet’s care to just anyone; use a professional pet sitter.


We offer a variety of services to meet the needs of you and your pets. We will customize a service plan to fit your pets’ needs and maintain their normal routines.

Furry Feedback (Testimonials)

We value each and every one of our clients and appreciate the praises and love we receive from them!

Photo Albums

Our pet clients touch our lives and leave paw prints on our hearts. To honor them, we have put together two photo albums. One has Friends & Family and the other is In Memory of those who are gone but never forgotten.


We have compiled a list of businesses, reference websites, and informative articles for you and your pets.

Our focus is providing in-your-home pet sitting. This allows your pets to stay in the comfort of a familiar environment where routines can be maintained as normal as possible. At the same time, your home is looked after (mail, lights, garbage cans, and plant watering), which provides a degree of crime deterrence.

The only boarding we offer is limited to cats and other small animals (i.e. pocket pets and reptiles) in their own habitats.

No, we have cared for a wide variety of other animals including pocket pets, birds, fish, rabbits, and reptiles.

We cannot, however, care for any animals that are aggressive or have a history of biting or attacking people or other animals.

No, we do not board dogs. We can board cats or small animals in their own habitats (e.g. reptiles or pocket pets). When a cat stays with us, they are not kept in a cage. Instead, they have a whole room with scratching posts, toys, and comfortable furniture to enjoy.

We provide services to pet clients in Modesto.  Please refer to our service area map.
