“ "Calypsositter" did a great job house- and cat-sitting for our older, shy kitty ”

Sit Dates Sep-22-21 - Nov-2-21 Homeowner Riverforest, Member Since Jun-26-21

Location Pittsboro North Carolina United States

We feel so lucky that "Calypsositter" could housesit for us. He came on time, kept our home clean and tidy, watered our plants, and had our shy kitty accepting him after only three days! (We thought she'd need one to two weeks before she would show her face.) It was also nice to have someone here who enjoyed nature, birdwatching, and the music scene in the area. He kept us updated on any issues and on our kitty's well being while we were gone, even sending pictures. We were so happy and relieved to know that our 16-year old kitty was in good hands. We also enjoyed his great sense of humor and his stories. We are keeping fingers crossed that he will be available again next time we travel. We would be happy to recommend his housesitting and petsitting services to anyone.
