⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- “If you are looking for a pet sitter that goes ABOVE AND BEYOND, please PLEASE don’t look any further, and I’ll tell you why: 3 weeks prior to my trip home for Christmas, my sweet 10 year old cat Puff was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)… I was heartbroken obviously, and at a loss of what to do. With the hope of going home for the holidays, I was in serious need of someone who was willing (and most importantly, capable) to handle such responsibility while I was away (visits 2x per day and administering pill’s each visit… no easy task!). I began the hunt for a trustworthy pet sitter. I found Christa from Wiggle Your Tail through a client of mine who belongs to a pet sitting Facebook group who posted about my situation, and Christa was the first to reply to the post.
I met her and 3 other pet sitters, one was even from a cat-only company which I assumed would be the most qualified, but I was pleasantly surprised when Christa came over for the meet & greet. She was HANDS DOWN the most sweet and comforting to my cat, as well as the ONLY one Puff didn’t run away from before they entered my home. I do have to mention she also was the most communicative/responsive out of all companies. I instantly knew she had a special love for animals, you can tell by the way she tried slowly introducing herself to Puff during her first visit.
I’ll make the long story short here – I was having HUGE issues administering Puff’s meds for more than a week, and I was beyond frustrated. I felt pretty hopeless as he was being SUPER difficult and non-cooperative (more than the typical cat I’d say), and although we didn’t nail his meds the first meet & greet, Christa came over multiple times after to try and try again. She was so sweet and understanding of our situation, and after a couple attempts and trial and error, we FINALLY got it down!!!! Puff was NEVER afraid of her, always calm when she was over, and I can’t begin to tell you all how above and beyond her customer service is.
I am SO INSANELY GRATEFUL for finding Christa. In the end, my heart was telling me I should stay home with my sweet boy this holiday season as it may be our last together. We were too fresh into our new routine that I just didn’t feel right leaving him quite yet, so I let Christa know right away as she graciously held the holiday time slots for me until I felt comfortable to make that decision, and her response was nothing but professional and supportive. I told her I wanted to continue using her after the holidays to do drop in visits when we need a little help here and there, so we plan on having a few more visits in the new year so she and Puff can become super comfortable with each other by the time I need to leave town again. I can honestly say at this point I wouldn’t trust anyone else but her to confidently take care of his medical needs while my sweet little baby is still here with us.
If you made it this far, you probably are super nervous to leave your pet with anyone, but please PLEASE know that your animal will be in amazing hands while you are away. THANK YOU CHRISTA!!!! Puff and I can’t wait to keep working with you!”
