Letter of Recommendation

Below is a letter of recommendation from one of our long time clients. The letter is dated 2005 and I am still caring for her cats today (November 2013). Additional references are available.

To Whom It May Concern:

Janis Strope first began pet-sitting for me at Christmastime of last year. She is, undoubtedly, the most conscientious caretaker I've ever hired. In the past, I always left detailed notes for pet-sitters. Janis takes her own notes. She leave my home--especially the litter box--cleaner than I left it (and that's saying a lot). Janis also leave me a little note, summarizing how things went, for my return.

After one of my cat died this summer, I was very concerned that I had to leave the surviving one alone Labor Day weekend. Janis visited with him even more than I had asked her to. Although he was very happy to see me, it was clear that he had been well cared for. I trust Janis' judgment. I appreciate her conscientiousness and, most importantly, I know she enjoys my cat--and he enjoys her (and that's saying a WHOLE lot). ;~)

I hope this is helpful.
