Great Petsitting Service – I was beside myself before going on vacation for 10 days because I have 3 cats and an African Grey parrot that was previously in poor health. I hate getting too many vaccines for my cats because I had a cat get feline sarcoma (cancer) from feleuk vaccine before. I would not be able to board them without that vaccine and worried horribly about it. Also because of my parrot's health issues, my bird was getting a new and varied diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh baked birdie bread, etc. Who or where could I find someone who would tend to all my cats and my bird? My husband and I have no children or relatives nearby to rely on for petsitting and so our vacations over the last decade have been brief to non-exitant. Even if I did board my 3 cats at my regular vet, he was not a bird doctor. So I was looking at carting my animals to two different vets, something that just added to my to-do list before vacation. And the cost... Well I searched around and found ANIMAL AUNT, Cindie Loucks. She had experience, references, was trained for animal emergency care, and had been in business for years. Luckily she serviced the downriver area to include me out here in Berlin Twp., on Huron River Dr. that I refer to as "the boonies." I sent her an email about my predicament and was able to book her for our trip a month away. When I spoke to her I found that she recently pet sitted for a neighbor down the road from me. When my husband and I met her and her husband, we knew we found someone who truly loves animals, a regular animal auntie!
We had her come twice a day because of my bird's diet issues and because like most cats, our cats freak out when no one is around for too long. She also offered to bring in our paper/mail, water my plants, and even fill my outdoor bird feeders if I wanted. What we liked the most is that she charges by trip not per animal and that she stays and plays with them for awhile.
Cindie did not disappoint. I came home to a clean house, happy cats that didn't seem stressed at all, and a very happy bird that loves her.
I highly recommend this petsitter to anyone. She's honest, responsible, affordable and well equipped to handle just about anything believe me because my bird is a BRAT! I called her one time only at the beginning of our trip just to see how things were going. With confidence, we never called again and just enjoyed ourselves without worry.
I'm leaving her business cards at my vet's office and rating her 5 stars here without hesitation. Because of Animal Aunt my husband and I, who will soon retire, will be able to travel more in the future without worry for our critters.
Thank you Cindie!
Best pet sitter EVER!!! – Cindie who owns Animal Aunt Pet Sitting Service is FANTASTIC! I was going to hire a neighbor's kid while out of town, but she convinced me not to. What if the dog was lost, stolen or had a medical emergency? The neighbor's kid would freak! Cindie is certified in Pet first Aid, can give my senior dog her shots and pills, she's insured and bonded and will is a PROFESSIONAL. Plus Cindie even takes in my mail and turns on/off lights (it helps that she teaches a Personal Protection course, Refuse To Be A Victim!).
I would hire her or anyone in her company in a heart beat! Well worth the money!!!! I can't say enough!
