Shawn is wonderful!
Before our trip, we set up a time for her to come over and meet my cats, and go over feeding routines/cleaning items and generally anything else that needed discussing.
She had my most shy cat following her around the house when I was gone! She updated me every day with info about the cats, and followed them with pics so that I knew that they were okay.
Pricing is very reasonable; there is even the option to pay with card for those that would find that more convenient. Cash and checks are of course accepted as well.
All in all, Shawn makes the entire process of having a pet sitter stress free and convenient, making my travels much less stressful.
