We are "FULL TIME Professional Pet Sitters !"

This is what we do for a living, this is not a side job or a hobby for us...
We service our clients "seven days a week, 365 days a year".

We all know "there's no place like home" and the same holds true for our pets.
Pets are happiest and feel more secure when they are at home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.

Experts agree, from a pet's perspective, the familiar environment, diet and exercise routine, along with the personal attention provided by a "Professional Pet Sitter" is the perfect answer to eliminating the stress of transportation and minimizes exposure to possible illnesses or injuries from other animals.

Creature Comforts happily provides you with what we have termed the...

All of your questions can be answered through this website,
our brochures or over the phone.

My time is valuable as is everyone else's therefore if you feel the need to do a personal interview, the above fee is due at the time of the interview. This fee will be refunded on your first invoice if my services are secured. Please have 'your' list of questions prepared... this is NOT a 'New Client Consultation' .
