Cats: Stefania – Copenhagen, Denmark 10 – 16 August 2023
Jeff and Sylvie are the sweetest people and fantastic house sitters. Some of the things I appreciated the most about their short stay: – They came for handover punctual and with a clear idea of what they needed to know. They organized their trip so that they could be there the night before and meet me in person. – They went above and beyond, with a true caring attitude. They helped me with picking up a food delivery, left the apartment cleaner than they found it, washed the sheets and made the bed, and even cooked a delicious meal for me! – My flight was canceled and I came back home one day later than expected, they immediately offered to go feed my babies since they were still in town, and they went twice, even though it was their last day in the city and they probably had better plans.. – They really love animals. I could immediately tell and so could my cats (at least Gigio, Maci would never let us know). It gave me sone extra peace of mind leaving my fur babies knowing they would be loved. They are very competent on plants as well and took very good care of mine. I would definitely recommend Jeff and Sylvie as housesitters, they are lovely and generous people. Hope I’ll get to meet them again ☺️
Cats: Maria – Helsinki, Finland 5 – 26 July 2023
I truly recommend Jeff and Sylvie! They are not only amazing people that genuinely care about pets, but also two individuals with really inspiring way of living. From the first moment I felt that they are trustworthy and very experienced in caring for animals. The questions they asked, the way they were talking about animals – we felt Leelou and Harry will be in great hands. They arrived to Helsinki one day early to make sure there are no surprises around their arrival (delayed or cancelled flight etc.), which was greatly appreciated. We also wanted to see them when we came back home so that we can say a proper goodbye – it was nice to reconnect with them before their Finnish road trip. Not even mentioning that the house was even cleaner than before our departure and that a delicious meal made by Sylvie was waiting for us as a welcome gift! 🙂 We were receiving updates and pictures every day from Jeff. The cats loved their company and felt really comfortable with them – they barely noticed we came back home 😀 In case of any questions/ doubts, Jeff would always reach out to double-check what to do. I cannot recommend them enough and I hope to see them in Helsinki again next year! All the best to both of you Jeff and Sylvie, thank you so much for taking such a good care of the cats, I hope we stay in touch!!
Cat: Joanna – London UK 21 June – 1 July 2023
The easiest 5 stars ever! Jeff and Sylvie were the perfect sitters and we are so very happy we got to connect with them. They cared for our home and our cat extremely well, with skill, kindness and thoughtfulness. We came back to a happy, relaxed cat, a home cooked meal, and a sparkling clean house (we of course cleaned the house before their arrival, but the place seemed even cleaner when we got back – it was so pleasant to return to!). Jeff and Sylvie are very organised and reliable; it was easy to arrange everything and agree the details; during our time away they sent us regular updates exactly as agreed beforehand and also sent us a helpful and insightful handover note at the end of their stay. They did everything we were hoping for and more. It is so nice to come across fully reliable and self sufficient people like Jeff and Sylvie! I would recommend them without any hesitation. Thanks for everything guys! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dog and Cat: Raphael – London UK 26 May – 13 June 2023
From start to finish, Jeff and Sylvie were absolutely fantastic sitters, I can say without doubt the best we ever had over the past 6 years of using Trustedhousitters (and we had many great sitters before!). Both demonstrated an incredible level of care, attention, and genuine love for Orca and Frodo. During our time away, we received regular updates, including adorable pictures and heartwarming anecdotes about Frodo and Orca. It was evident that the Jeff and Sylvie went above and beyond to ensure our furry ones felt safe, loved, and entertained. Upon returning home, we found our house in immaculate condition, our pets happy and content, and even a home-made cooked dinner which was sensational after returning late from a long travel. The level of care and attention exhibited by Jeff and Sylvie towards Orca and Frodo was truly remarkable. We wholeheartedly recommend Jeff and Sylvie to anyone in need of reliable, trustworthy, and compassionate care for their furry family members. Thank you for taking such excellent care of Frodo, Orca and our flat!
Cats: Muriel – London, UK 1-9 April 2023
When planning our Easter holidays, we have been extremely happy to hear that Jeff and Sylvie were available to look after our cats and our house, and we have been delighted to welcome them again for the third time. We know that we can fully enjoy our holidays when we have the best sitters at home! Communication is always extremely easy, and we always come back to a very clean and tidy house, happy cats and a delicious meal kindly prepared by Sylvie. In addition to being very caring, Jeff and Sylvie are always ready to go above and beyond, and to help on all fronts when they can. But above all, it is a real pleasure to have the opportunity to spend a few hours with Jeff and Sylvie before we leave on holiday, to discuss travel adventures and more. Thank you so much again Jeff and Sylvie, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you again soon!
Cat: Katie – London, UK 24-30 March 2023
Jeff and Sylvie took excellent care of our home and our cat Billy for a week. They were very conscientious in finding out about his routine and our expectations for the housesit in advance. We were kept updated regularly with photos which made us feel at ease and we could see that he was happy and relaxed in our absence. Our house was spotless on our return and Sylvie had even very kindly cooked us a delicious meal, which went above and beyond our expectations! We would highly recommend Jeff and Sylvie as trustworthy and diligent housesitters who will take the best care of your pet(s).
Cat: Lucia – London, UK 24 Dec 2022 – 4 Jan 2023
The experience of Jeff and Sylvie cat-sitting for us was as good as it gets. We’d never met them before but after meeting on this site and connecting through an introductory zoom-chat, we sensed April was going to be in very good and loving hands (and laps). We were more than right. Jeff and Sylvie were very attentive to April’s needs, and their great communication skills helped us feel very secure while we were away. Jeff and Sylvie also took pains to make sure the place was in wonderful, welcoming shape when we arrived home from a ten day trip away. It was always a pleasure to engage with them, and we are very much hoping they’ll be available when we are next in need. All to say, we highly recommend them!
Cats: Elizabeth – Munich, Germany 4-21 September 2022
Jeff and Sylvie are excellent pet and house sitters we can highly recommend to everybody! We don’t have so much experience with house sitters yet. Therefore, we have been a bit nervous, also knowing that are two cats, Nelly and Noel, are frightened and very shy at the beginning and therefore don’t make the start easy for pet sitters. But we were lucky and Jeff and Sylvie applied as sitters and we could not have imagined better sitters for Nelly and Noel. Jeff and Sylvie are both very professional and have a lot of experience as house and pet sitters. Thanks to that, communication was very clear from the beginning, they updated as regularly about their flight to Germany so that we knew that everything is going on how planned and this gave us a very good feeling. During our vacation, Jeff and Sylvie updated as daily about everything going on at home. As we already mentioned, our cats are very shy but luckily, Jeff and Sylvie have a lot of experience with cats. They noticed immediately that Nelly and Noel both are very gentle and sweet but just need their time to get customized with new people. We were so glad to read that they loved them from the very beginning also they were just hiding the first days. After some days, Nelly and Noel forgot their shyness and played and cuddled with both of them. Sylvie and Jeff not only took care about our cats but also about our apartment and plants. When we came home from our vacation, the apartment was very clean and exactly in the condition we left it. They also washed the bed sheets, so our bed was fully made when we came back home. Sylvie was so nice to even cook a welcome meal for us. Thanks to that, we were welcomed by our two happy and relaxed lovely cats and just had to warm up the very delcicious meal Sylvie made for us and we had a very relaxing start back at home. Jeff and Sylvie, we can’t thank you enough for taking so good care of Nelly and Noel. We wish you all the best for your future travels and house sits! Love, Elisabeth, Philipp, Nelly and Noel
Dog: Tiina – Helsinki, Finland 7-26 August 2022
Words are not enough to express how satisfied and grateful we are to Jeff and Sylvie. I knew right away that Helmi had the best possible people to take care of her. Our old lady is a bit stubborn and she has her own funny ways but I didn’t even dare to hope that Helmi for example could sleep next to them like she always sleeps with us but Jeff and Sylvie surprised us. I’m sure that Helmi misses them. Giving medicines as well went really well even tough Helmi knows how to make it difficult. Our home and garden was so well taken care of and our home has probably never been so clean. It looked like Jeff and Sylvie had been working hard the whole time but I hope that they also had time to enjoy being here. A very delicious home cooked meal and wonderful pie and apple crumble were waiting for us at home and we ate too much. As I wrote, words are not enough to express how wonderful and lovely people Jeff and Sylvie are and we are so grateful that we got them into our home taking care of Helmi and got to know this amazing couple.
Cats: Muriel – London UK, 22 July – 5 August 2022
We have been delighted to have the opportunity to welcome back Jeff and Sylvie for a second Summer sitting. It was a pleasure to see them again and listen to their amazing travel adventures! We left for our holidays fully confident that our house and two cats would be perfectly looked after. Communication with Jeff is always very easy, clear and friendly. We came back home to an amazingly clean and tidy house, a delicious meal prepared by Sylvie with all the instructions to enjoy it fully, our bed ready with clean beddings, and most importantly, two happy cats at the top of their form. Thank you so much Jeff and Sylvie for being such lovely and caring guests, giving us the peace of mind we needed to enjoy our time away, we look forward to welcoming you back very soon!
Dog, Cat, Chickens, Duck, Goats: Michelle – Santa Rosa California, 7-21 June 2022
Jeff and Sylvie were the best! We really couldn’t ask for more. They were amazing with our pets and our house. They were great communicators and just great people!! Highly recommend!
House sit: Leo – San Francisco, USA 2-5 June 2022
Jeff & Sylvie were absolutely fantastic sitters. Communicative and kind, they went WELL above and beyond when it came to leaving my apartment in ship shape. Despite my cat passing away just before the sit, the way they cared for the apartment and my plants indicated a very strong positive indicator that animals would do great in their care. Highly recommend!
Horses, Dogs, Cats and Poultry: Emma – Witham Essex, UK 25 April – 2 May 2022
Jeff & Sylvie aren’t your average house sitters, they are Premium Plus House Sitters It all started with excellent communication, followed by prompt arrival, an attentive handover and introduction to our menagerie (three dogs, two horses, three cats and chickens. They followed our house notes perfectly (it may sound silly, but you’d be surprised how many don’t) The animals were cared for thoughtfully, and we received regular updates and photos, which meant we felt confident our mixed bag of animals were all being looked after, and happy, this enabled us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The icing on the cake was returning to an immaculate house and a delightful feast. Jeff & Sylvie go above and beyond, and we highly, highly recommend. If they accept your sit, you won’t be disappointed.
Dog Sit: Jodie – London, UK 5-20 April 2022
If you get a message saying Jeff and Sylvie are free to house sit for you then don’t think twice, snap them up straight away! I can only add to their other amazing reviews and echo that they are both lovely, caring and considerate. Our dog Roddy adored them from day 1 and we could see why. They treated our family home with care and I am pretty sure that Sylvie left everything cleaner than we had, my saucepans were shiny! Of course that’s not why you need a house / dog sitter but it was an added bonus. We felt 100% happy whilst we were away for our 2 week holiday and couldn’t have asked for more form our first experience of house sitters. Our Quooker tap broke whilst they were staying and Jeff did his level bet to sort it and even descaled our back up kettle. They were also helpful with things like sending a forgotten password for a school project etc. The icing on the cake was the amazing home cooked meal they left for us to enjoy when we arrived home, so welcome after a night flight. We would use them again in a heart beat, although I know they are so fantastic that they may not have a free slot! Thanks Jeff and Sylvie for caring for Roddy and keeping our home loved and safe whilst we were away, it was a huge privilege to have you stay and we hope to see you again soon!
Dog, Cat and Poultry Sit: Mathilde – Motril, Spain 13 Dec 2021 – 6 Jan 2022
Sylvie and Jeff were everything we had hoped for – a thoroughly nice, reliable, modest and very conscientious couple. They kept us up to date with how things were going and sent us photos regularly. As we stayed away longer than their sitting period, they even made an instruction video for the sitters who came after them and explained everything in detail to the new sitters. They left the house thoroughly cleaned, swept up all the leaves from the terrace, washed and changed the towels and the bedsheets, cleaned the house including the main windows, emptied the fire shed and cleaned inside the fireplace, replaced what they used up and so on. Sylvie even made us a welcome home meal in the freezer. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and we hope they’ll want to come back to our house again! Thank you very much, Jeff and Sylvie!!!
Cat Sit: Kristina – London, UK 23-29 Nov 2021
Jeff and Sylvie are the best!! =) Such wonderfully warm and friendly people, who were a pleasure to meet and chat with and took perfect care of our little fur baby and house. We came back to a very relaxed and content cat and a sparkling clean house, clean sheets on the bed and even the most delicious dinner and dessert for us. Wonderful communication and regular updates. We felt in the safest of hands right from the beginning. They took every care with finding out Manni’s needs and schedule aswell as what was needed around the house. When they came and met us before the sit, Manni was immediately took to them and was merrily playing away. We would be so happy to have them return anytime.
Cat Sit: Aly – Kent, UK 2-12 Nov 2021
What a superb and charming couple Jeff and Sylvie are for our first house sitting experience. We were leaving fairly early am on the first morning of the sitting however Jeff and Sylvie were able to stay with us the night before we left so we got to meet them, have dinner and brief them how things worked and the routine for Fleur and Lily They had diligently read through the Welcome pack so this briefing was quick and easy. Clearly, they had been here many times before. Originally Jeff is from London and Sylvie from Paris. We have been to Paris many times and is one of our favorite cities. Needless to say, we quickly felt at ease in their company and spent a very pleasant evening together. We formed a WhatsApp group and kept in touch whist we were away; Jeff and Sylvie regularly sending photos and updating us on Fleur and Lily (so reassuring), the post and parcels that seemed to turn up on a regular basis and the man that came to service the boiler! Fleur (a ragdoll kitten 7 months old) already the size of a normal adult was finding it difficult to use the cat flap and likes to playfully torment Lilly (who is 8 and very laid back). Lily gets fed up with Fleur but won’t retaliate. Jeff and Sylvie all but fixed this whilst we were away – clearly cat whisperers!! All very good whilst we were away but it gets even better. On our return (early evening) Sylvie had prepared a Parisian style dinner (it lasted us for 3 days!!) the fridge was stocked with essentials and the house was absolutely “spick and span”! An absolute 5 star couple and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other house owners and look forward to welcoming them back in the not too distant future.
Cat Sit: Alessandro – London, UK 2-16 Oct 2021
Jeff and Sylvie were not only great sitters, they were also two nice and thoughtful people, it’s been really a pleasure to meet them! They informed themselves about the needs and preferences of our cat and took great care of him whilst we were away. They also kept us regularly informed about how he was doing – he definitely enjoyed their company. Our home was sparkling clean when we got back, they kept it tidy and clean, even our plants were in very good shape. They went over and above by leaving a delicious welcome home meal – wow, the tarte tatin was good! It was a wonderful treat after coming back from a long journey. We absolutely recommend them and hope to meet them again!
Cat Sit: Alice – Maryland, USA 14 June – 16 July 2021
Sylvie and Jeff were two amazing, kind generous people . If looking for sitters, they are the best. Our place and cats looked like we have not left for 6 weeks. Negative: They’re not close enough to see them often .
Cat Sit: KItty – South Carolina, USA 1 – 8 June 2021
We could not have asked for 2 better people to pet sit for us! Jeff & Sylvie are absolutely amazing at paying attention to details. I never once worried about the welfare and safety of our cats, nor did I worry about their comfort or happiness while we were away. Jeff took detailed notes on all of our routines and our preferences. They were both very respectful of our home and our space, staying comfortably aside during the times we were all in the home together. I recieved several photos while we were gone showing how well everyone was doing. We returned to a house cleaner than we left it – the fridge was even thoroughly cleaned (something I detest doing). They had a meal prepared for us when we walked in the door and it was delicious! They were quick to get back to us both before the sit and during. We enjoyed every extra minute we spent with them so much so we offered to let them stay longer after we returned. The 2 of them went above and beyond the level of care we expected: brushing our cats, spending time with our fosters, and even feeding the local cats that live in the neighborhood like I do when I’m home. It was an absolute pleasure to meet them, have them in our home, having them caring for our furry family members and, I hope, making them lifelong friends! We can’t thank them enough for everything they did.
Dog and Cat Sit: Debra – Costa Rica, 27 Mar – 7 Apr 2021
Jeff and Sylvie were well organised pet-sitters. Their communication with us was clear and prompt. They took Covid protocols seriously and left our apartment in perfect condition. They asked careful questions about the care of our pets, which we appreciated. Their flexibility and kind understanding when we accidentally forgot to leave them a key was most appreciated. We thank them very much for assisting us at this difficult time.
Dog Sit: Miriana – Brussels, Belgium 29 Oct – 4 Nov 2020
Jeff and Sylvie made 2020 look bright again !!!! Not only did they take care of our Rocksy like he was theirs, they also welcomed us back home with the most thoughtful gesture ever: delicious homemade dish and desert were waiting for us in our fridge as well as plenty of fruits and a very nice card full of kind words. During the sit, they regularly sent us pics of them with Rocksy either walking or cuddling. Perfect sit ! I highly recommend them! Surely hope to have them sit for us again.
Cat Sit: Charlie – Berlin, Germany 5 – 15 Oct 2020
Jeff and Sylvie were absolutely outstanding guests. Super friendly and reliable, and the cats immediately fell in love with them. They were always in contact with me when anything came up, and sent regular updates about my cats. I loved the pictures <3 They treated my home with a lot of care and left it cleaner than before! I was really impressed how thoughtful they were about little details which made me feel very at ease on my travels, and made me feel super welcome when returning back home. I can’t thank you two enough! I would be delighted to welcome you back into my home anytime and can only recommend this experience to anyone! Thank you Jeff and Sylvie, it was truly a pleasure! Hope to see you again in the future.
Cat Sit: Ivana – Nieuw Vennep, Netherlands 17 July – 8 Aug 2020
Jeff and Sylvie are the best of people – such kind and beautiful souls! I was super worried whether I would be able to find suitable people for my spoiled fur baby as my travel dates were finalized very much last minute. I struck gold, however, with the best sitters I could ever imagine. The communication with Jeff was quick, pleasant, detailed, and on spot at all times. This was my first trustedhousesitters experience, and having such seasoned sitters as Jeff and Sylvie to go through it with has made it super easy and comfortable. They even arrived into town one day before the sit, so we could meet and talk about all the details in person, since my flight was super early the next morning. During the sit, they regularly kept in touch and sent photos and videos of Ditto at exactly the right moments. Just when I would be thinking “oh, I miss my baby, wonder how he is doing” a message would arrive with a photo or a video that would put a smile on my face. It was clear that Ditto loved them, as well. Jeff and Sylvie did not leave my place exactly as they found it – they left it in better shape than it was when they came in. Everything was spotless, neat, and wonderfully clean. The fridge was full… there was even dinner, dessert, and wine waiting for us. And Ditto was super chill, his fur shiny and soft, his belly full. I really cannot come up with superlatives good enough to express how great Jeff and Sylvie are. I can only repeat the words of one of the previous reviews I read on their profile when they first got in touch with me – if you are lucky enough to have Jeff and Sylvie apply for your sit, count your blessings and be assured that both your house and your pet(s) will be in best possible hands while you are gone.
Dog and Cat Sit: Chloe – London, UK 16 – 24 Feb 2020
Jeff and Sylvie are such a fantastic couple, it was lovely to meet them and to hear a little about their amazing adventures. We had exchanged a few emails in the lead up to the sit and they arrived with time to show them around and so they could get to know Roku and Bronte before we left. We went away with total confidence knowing that the house and Roku and Bronte would be well looked after. They kept in touch to let us know how everything was going. This is especially comforting to us with Bronte who is now very old and frail and it’s always nice to hear that Roku is enjoying himself! Unfortunately, our fridge broke down while we were away and they were very understanding about it while we tried to sort out having a new one delivered. It really wasn’t ideal for them but they couldn’t have been nicer about it. We returned home to two very relaxed pets, an immaculate house, a delicious home baked cake and wonderful meal. It was really so lovely and thoughtful of them to provide us with that after our journey. We can’t recommend them highly enough and hope to keep in touch with them and that maybe they can come and look after Roku and Bronte again one day.
Cat Sit: Hester – Chiswick, UK 23 – 26 Aug 2019
If you are lucky enough to have Jeff and Sylvie apply to be your sitters, grab their offer ASAP!! Such a lovely couple. What can I say, they were a delight to have here and they looked after our two kittens and home beautifully. Our cats were so well looked after and they even learnt a few things whilst we were away. Sylvie and Jeff are great with animals. Jeff and Sylvie’s reviews are excellent and being fairly new to Trusted House sitters this was important to us and they didn’t disappoint. We also had a delicious meal ready for us on our return – a lovely evening had with them and the house was immaculate. Jeff and Sylvie are a really lovely couple and will always be welcome to stay here anytime they are in town.
Cat Sit: Muriel – Balham, UK 10 – 21 Aug 2019
We have been very lucky to have Jeff and Sylvie as our sitters during our Summer Holidays. We had a very comforting first conversation over the phone, where Jeff asked many relevant questions. Jeff and Sylvie arrived the afternoon before our early morning flight the next day, and we were delighted to get to know them. The communication was always very fluid, we received almost daily news from Archie. Archie started to have diarrhea a week after our departure (it happens from time to time) and Jeff and Sylvie have taken it very seriously: they called Trustedhousesitters’ Vet line, stayed home a full day to check on him, called the Pet Hospital on a Sunday to get their views, and went to our Vet to get some medicines which enabled him to recover. When we came back, we found a very clean house, clean bedsheets in our bedroom, two delicious home-cooked meals, a detailed “hand-over note” for our cat and our house, and a happy and playful cat! Thank you very much again Jeff and Sylvie for being so kind, thoughtful, reliable and caring, we hope to welcome you again soon!
Dog, Cat and Chickens: Karen – Ménéac, France 21 Jun – 9 Jul 2019
Jeff and Sylvie looked after our house and pets without any problems, both sadie and izzy was spoilt rotten, when we returned there was a lovely meal waiting for us and a beautiful clean house and a fridge full off food, they also managed our garden which is very large, many thanks to you both
Cat Sit: Lucy – Maidenhead, UK 9 – 13 May 2019
I really enjoyed meeting Jeff and Sylvie, and they we absolute super-stars for the house sit. I was lucky enough to spend an evening chatting with them and hearing all about their travels and their love of cooking (thank you!), films and fantastic travel experiences and plans. Zena and Mia were so very chilled, sleek and well brushed when i returned home. When i got home, the flat was looking very well cared for, and I was lucky enough to experience Sylvie’s cooking – thank you so much. I do hope our paths cross again, and you would always be welcome here.
Dog and Cat Sit: Kimmy – Burghfield, UK 6 – 9 May 2019
Jeff and Sylvie were just fantastic and went above and beyond in their house sit. Zuma and Loki had clearly been very well looked after, and we were left with the most delicious meal on our arrival home! So much so that i had to ask for the recipe – it was absolutely fantastic 🙂 They are the sweetest and kindest couple and i really couldn’t have asked for me whilst we were away. I returned home to a spotless house, clean sheets on the bed and nice clean towels. The dirty washing was also washed and dried – just amazing and was very much appreciated 🙂 I would very much love Jeff and Sylvie to house sit again as I felt so at ease leaving them with Zuma and Loki. Thank you so much again and hope to see you both again soon 🙂
Dog Sit: Gila – Bracknell, UK 1 – 6 May 2019
Jeff and Sylvie are the kindest most loving house sitters you could ever wish for. They did more than expected and I wish everyone one was as kind as thoughtful as them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your thoughtfulness and honesty.
Cat Sit: Holly – Derby, UK 29 Sep – 3 Oct 2018
Jeff and Sylvie looked after my tabby cat Nero for 5 days end of September 2018. They are lovely people and were very organised before arrival. Whilst I was away they sent me some great photos of Nero and kept me up to date with how he was doing. They played lots of games with Nero so i know he must have had a great time too. I didn’t need to worry about anything! I returned to a sparkling clean home, their bedding and towels washed and dried, and Sylvie had even left me dinner in the fridge! Would definitely recommend and would love them to look after Nero again in future, if they so wish 🙂 Many thanks, Holly.
Rabbits Sit: Victoria – South Wingfield, UK 17-21 Sep 2018
Jeff and Sylvie were perfect house-sitters, arriving the night before so we could leave early, and staying back late when we got stuck in traffic. Our home and our pets had clearly been well cared for, and they even looked after us, having a delicious meal waiting for us when we got in! We hope you’re able to come back and sit for us again sometime, if the fates allow 🙂
Cat Sit: Skye – Brussels, Belgium 8 – 15 Sep 2018
This was Jeff and Sylvie’s first housesit and my gosh, did they ever hit it out of the park! They are the sweetest couple and are so thoughtful and were so focused on the wellbeing of our kitty. They sent us regular updates on both the house and the cat. We never felt for a second that anything was amiss. We came home to a very happy (and spoiled) kitty who had been given a new toy (which they made) by her foster parents. The house was absolutely immaculate when we arrived home. They went above and beyond in every way to make our vacation and homecoming were the most relaxing ever. We came home to a lovely card and a beautifully cooked meal and nothing else do to but unpack our bags. They also left us a detailed list of all the happenings with kitty and the apartment while we were away. I have no reservations whatsoever about recommending them as pet/housesitters. They are fantastic and we will definitely have them back if their schedule allows. We wish them all the best on the next step in their ’round-the-world’ adventure and hope to see them again very soon! Jeff and Sylvie – Thank you so much for everything. You guys are rock stars! 🙂
