Pet Sitter Recommendations: DC/MD suburbs (Montgomery County)?
March 14, 2016 8:57 PM   Subscribe

I need any recommendations y'all might have for reliable pet sitting companies or individuals in the DC/MD area.

I have two cats, and am looking for a really reliable pet sitting company to use for both one-time visits (i.e. if I have to stay at work later than usual one day and need someone to feed them that night) and for more extended care (i.e. going out of town on vacation and need someone to come twice a day for feedings and litter box cleaning).

I can't make any personal recommendations, but check out

Disclosure: I used to work for them several years ago.

We went through Fetch! DC. On two separate occasions we had two separate sitters that would come by, do the litter box, check food and water and play with the cats.

There was also a first visit where you get to meet the sitter and walk them through to tell them what to do (our sitters also helped get the mail and water the plants as well). The sitters would also email us pictures. I believe it was 20 dollars a visit before gratuity.

We were happy with the service and would use them again in a pinch.

I had great experience with Paws We Luv - Evan is responsive, flexible, has a great sense of humor, and likes cats more than he likes people (a major plus in my book, although he might seem a bit rough the first time you meet him).

I had mixed experience with Fetch! - they have a rotating group of pet sitters, and while the first girl was great, I had some doubts, if the person I got for my second vacation was really there every day like I requested.

I had great experiences with both Tails of the City in Montgomery County and with Little Visits, Big Love in NE DC.
