Princess "Sophi" (a Porkie) is an adorable heart stealer, and she is also one of the quickest dogs I've met.

Max (Retriever mix) is a very sweet old fellow. He required some extra TLC to get him to eat.

Here are some of the comments our clients have made about us. Angie's List now offers free memberships and you can read our 100+ reviews there.
"Cathy and Mark of Comforts of Home Pet Sitting were so professional to work with and so kind to my dog Georgie. You can tell they have a passion for and a love of animals. They took great care of Georgie, my home and watering my flowers. I felt totally confident and stress free during my trip knowing they were taking care of everything for me while I was on vacation. I totally recommend their services!"
"They follow our directions very well as we have special medications that have to be administered and a special order in putting food down. We feel they are a great value. This is the second or third time we have used Cathy and her husband. We have a very high opinion of them as they take very good care of our pets and house. They are very trustworthy and seem to genuinely appreciate our pets."
"Cathy has been making weekly visits to my home to walk my dog since October 2010. Cathy and Mark have always been professional and have always provided excellent care of my dog, Paxton, rain or shine. I have been extremely happy with the service they provide. I would recommend them highly."
"Cathy did a wonderful job taking care of our cat in our home. I felt very comfortable entrusting Gryphon's care to Cathy and would definitely use her services again."
"Very honest and kind, our cat loved her. We will use Comforts of Home Pet Sitting again and again. Quite professional but loving."
"Cathy is very professional and responsible. I feel the price I pay is very well worth the time she spends with Sebastian."
Facebook -- Pet Sitter Linda wrote: "I leave Indy knowing that I leave my clients in very capable hands with Cathy and Comforts of Home Pet Sitting LLC! She is an awesome pet sitter and my four kiddies love her to death! If there is anyone that will love your pets as much as I have, it is Cathy!!"
Facebook -- "So thankful to have found Cathy! It is nice to know that your pets are so well taken care of while you are away! I highly recommend Cathy!!!"
Facebook -- "I just used Cathy for the first time and she was the best! When she came for her initial visit, she was very thorough at took great notes considering I had 5 dogs and 5 cats. Between the initial visit and when we left on vacation I found a 6th dog and one of my cats broke its leg and needed medication 2X per day. Cathy didn't bat an eye, she was great!! She made overnight visits and took great care of my entire clan as well as my house. I will use Comforts of Home Pet Sitting every time I need to trust my babies to someone else."
"She is very warm and friendly. My dogs took to her instantly. She left notes on all her visits. We were very comfortable leaving our boys in her hands and will use her services again in the future."
Facebook -- "Cathy watched our dog while we were out of town for a few days recently. Our dog used to get very anxious when he was boarded in the past, so allowing him to stay at home was very beneficial. Cathy gave thorough notes when we returned that detailed each of her visits, she took him for walks, played chase in the yard, and even brought in our newspaper. I highly recommend Cathy and Comforts of Home Pet Sitting LLC."
Facebook -- "Cathy watched our three cats for the first time recently while we were out of town. She left a journal of her visits which I enjoyed reading. We could tell that our cats were well cared for. I highly recommend Cathy and Comforts of Home Pet Sitting LLC."
"Cathy took excellent care of our precious kitties, and our home. I enjoyed reading the journal of her daily visits."
Facebook -- "Cathy took care of our clutter of cats and our dog Max. This was an especially challenging job as Max began chemotherapy shortly before our vacation. We chose to have Cathy stay overnight at our house to keep an eye on Max. Cathy took care of the six to eight walks a day and a complicated medication schedule -- including communications with our veterinarian while we were gone. Max even convinced Cathy into taking him for a few rides in her car, something he enjoys very much. Thanks to Cathy, we were able to go on our vacation, Max had great care while we were gone and we were able to relax (well as much as possible) on our vacation. Thank you again Cathy. I highly recommend Cathy and Comforts of Home Pet Sitting LLC."
Facebook -- "THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Cathy took care of our 4 cats while we were on vacation, and I have never felt so comfortable leaving my animals in someone else's care. Her first visit to get acquainted with our animals and their routine was very impressive - she asked about each cat and its routine, and took such detailed notes. I have a 16 year old cat with kidney failure, and Cathy took excellent care of her - she looks great, and acts like she feels great, too! Now that I know about Cathy, I will use her every time I travel and have to leave my furry family members behind!"
Facebook -- "Cathy took care of our cat this past week and did an absolutely wonderful job. She left a daily log for us to read to let us know how our cat did while we were gone, which we really appreciated. She also watered our flowers and kept them alive during a heat wave. I would highly recommend Comforts of Home Pet Sitting to anyone who needs a pet sitter."
Facebook -- "I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to Cathy for the excellent care she provided to our two dogs during a very difficult and stressful time in our lives. Cathy's service was impeccable; she is detail-oriented, always friendly, and always professional. We had complete confidence while we were away that Cathy was taking good care of our pets and our house. In addition, she was extremely accommodating to our ever-changing schedule over the course of several weeks. We will always be grateful to Cathy for her help this past July and we look forward to having her sit for our dogs again soon under happier circumstances!"
"Cathy was very pleasant to work with and I would recommend her to anyone. We will certainly use her services again."
"Cathy is GREAT! She is very thorough in her initial visit, responds timely to email and texts, and took great care of my dogs. I definitely did not worry while I was gone and plan to use her again in the future."
Facebook -- "Cathy - thank you SO much for taking care of my dogs the week we were out...and especially since one of them was sick. :( You went above and beyond and I appreciate it so much!! You are great. Will be happy to recommend you to anyone who needs dog sitting services. Thanks again!!"
"The cat was fat and happy when I returned -- Cathy will continue to get my business!"
"She is dependable, organized, prepared, kind, thorough and easy to work with. Cathy has gone over and above her pet care duties. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone who needs pet care. Honestly I feel like Cathy is caring for my children in my absence and doing a great job of it as well!"
"I was very impressed with her professional approach and record keeping. When I got home, I found a diary of her visits, which included tasks performed and how my cats were doing, including any behavior noted."
"Things couldn't go any better. She has a genuine care in the welfare of the animals and for the home that she is in."
"Cathy did a great job and I will use her again for my 18 yr old dog. Hand fed my dog who has a hard time standing up. Did a great job, I can't say enough good things about her. I got Cathy's card from my vet and set up a day for her to stop by and meet the dog. She came over and made detailed notes about the dog. I will use Cathy again and can't say enough good things about her."
"Cathy did a wonderful job!!!! We had an issue where our little dog found a way to get out of the fenced in back yard in between her visits. She went above and beyond to locate the dog, took the initiative to try and find where he had gotten out, and then she actually fixed the possible places where he was escaping. She called us to let us know what had happened and what she had done. Overall I can't recommend Cathy and Comforts of Home Pet Sitting enough. Cathy is honest, trustworthy, and I will definitely use her company again!"
"She is very organized and professional, and clearly sets up expectations up front at the initial meet and greet visit. In addition to taking care of our cat and fish, she watered our garden and outside container plants, picked up ripe tomatoes and cucumbers and put them in the fridge, brought in the mail, etc. When we returned, all was well. Despite the weeklong 90+ weather outside, my outside plants were clearly watered and doing well. So was our cat. House was locked, alarm was set, and all was in order inside. I would strongly recommend Cathy, and certainly use her services again."
"She went above & beyond her responsibilities. She took exceptional care of our "kids". Buddy our aloof cat became her instant friend! Our first night away there was a big storm and she knew my dogs would be scared so she left a restaurant with her family in tow to drive over and check on them. You can't buy CHARACTER. Cathy has it and an innate sense of duty, along with a true love for animals. I'm so thankful we found such a great person that just happens to be a pet sitter."
"She was very gentle with our cats, one of our very shy and suspicious cats came up to her. I had no problem trusting Cathy with our cats and our key to the house. She left notes for every visit and called me back promptly when I left her a message. She is one of a kind and I am ever thankful she was able to fit us in over the holidays! Cathy will be "our" Petsitter from now on and I already recommended her to some of my coworkers."
"Our family and our cats liked her immediately. Not only did she take good care of our cats, we came home to daily notes on how everything had gone. We have used her twice already and plan to make her the regular caretaker for our pets."
"From the very first visit I knew Cathy was the right person. It is obvious that she loves animals and is a nurturing person. It gives you peace of mind while you are away. My cats are very shy, but they love Cathy. I was gone for over ten days, but If I had questions or concerns, she was only a phone call, text, or e-mail away...and she is VERY quick to respond. She great at what she does and her rates are extremely reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for the very best in pet care."
"Home delivery of pet sitting services for 2 dogs and 3 exotic Parrots. Cathy exceeded all of our expectations of professionalism, pricing, and the extra individual care she provided to each of our beloved critters, and will always be our first call when future pet sitting service is needed."
"The animals were happy and well taken care of."
