When you travel, trust your beloved pets to Janis at Pet Sit Ithaca, in Ithaca, NY. 

You need an experienced, mature, and responsible person taking care of your animals and home while you are away. With 15 years of experience in Ithaca, I offer the special members of your family the very best of care.

Your pets stay in their own home, with familiar surroundings and smells, sleeping in their own beds, surrounded by their toys. This helps mitigate the separation anxiety pets sometimes feel when their humans have to leave for a few days.

Cats in particular, who can be fussy about litter boxes, get to keep using what they are used to, instead of being shuffled off to someone else's home and having to use a box in unfamiliar territory.

What I offer
- daily visits
- play time and personal attention
- fresh water and food
- litter box care
- bring in mail and newspaper

I specialize in cats, but I will also care for your birds, fish, hampsters, and most other pets.

Rate is $20/visit, with discount for multiple visits in one day, and for extended absences.

Our area of service is a 10 mile radius from downtown Ithaca.

While I do not petsit for dogs, I can recommend several excellent local dog-sitters and dog-walkers for you.

Contact me today to find out how I can help provide the special care your little family members deserves.
