This Cat Sitter Can Take Care of Your Cat and Your House
I’m a nearly lifelong resident of Hampton Roads, and I come equipped with a decently padded Rolodex of contacts – veterinarians, pet product suppliers and even air conditioning specialists who won’t take advantage of you.

This is just a small part of the all around house and cat sitting service I offer.
