When we arrived home, there was fecal matter in various places around the house, which meant that my sick cat, who has inflammatory bowel disease, will get diarrhea if he is not given his meds. He lost a lot of weight, which, as it turned out was due to his hyperthyroidism being out of control. This was due to not getting his medication as prescribed.

Description of Work
We used this service while we were on vacation for 2 weeks. The provider, Amanda, seemed very professional when we interviewed her prior to needing her. She claimed to be a vet tech in the past. I needed to switch pet sitters at the last minute because my usual pet sitter forgot we needed her during this time and had made other plans. I have one old, sick cat who needs multiple medications and another cat who is healthy. Amanda knows how to be reassuring during the interview process, so I felt my kitties would be in good hands. I made sure to leave DETAILED written instructions concerning every minute detail of what the cats needed: food, medication, litter boxes, etc, and showed her everything she need to know and where to find it all when she was at my house. I called her several times while we were out of town to be sure there were no problems and left her our cell phone number, in case she needed to contact us. She was supposed to be at my house twice daily to give medication to the sick cat and to play with the healthy one and make sure she, too, was taken care of.She collected the entire amount she charged me for the 2 weeks of pet sitting in advance.....she claimed that if the cats needed to go to the vet while we were gone, she would have the money to pay for it. DO NOT EVER PAY IN ADVANCE!!! If the pats need to go to the vet, the vet can call for a credit card number in order to get paid.
