“Our two 17-year-old cats absolutely love Miss Lori.  At their age, they have some health concerns; both need special food and one gets medication and insulin shots.  I never worry that they are in great hands when we go out-of-town, and that Lori will capably administer meds, keep an eye on their overall condition, and handle any medical situation that might arise. Often, when we come home, they don't even seem to have noticed that we've been away!"  ​

“When we drop our Manchester terrier, Manny, at Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Sitting, we know he is in for a special time.  Whether it is an unexpected trip to town or a three week vacation on the other side of the world, we know he will be taken care of with caring, love, and respect.  We feel very fortunate to have found Lori who has a unique talent in working with animals.  They are not just treated as clients, but as members of the family.  Lori is not just a pet sitter, but a pet owner and lover.  It is shown on all her interactions with our dog who truly enjoys Lori and seeing her two border collies - Freckles and Nellie.  I can't recommend Lori high enough for her skill and passion."  ​

 – Bruce Sterling, Sudden Valley resident


“I was referred to Lori and simply cannot recommend her enough.  She came to meet me and my two cats and was not only very pleasant, she truly paid attention to what I told her about all the extensive routines we have.  She obviously loves creatures, as she has her own fuzzy family and talks about them lovingly.


But she also was professional - which is hugely important - and made sure I gave her all the information she needed in case of emergencies.


I took one very short trip as a sort of trial and Lori was wonderful.  When I arrived back home, the kitties were completely comfortable and - which is the greatest compliment to a petsitter - acted like things really weren't disrupted in their routine.  I've since been on two longer trips and returned with the same result. 


So regardless of whether you just need a quick visit, dog walk, or extensive, over the top doting on your pets, I completely recommend you get in touch with Lori.  She is awesome!”
