“I have known Kelly for 10 years in the capacity of a MEOW Foundation volunteer. Not once in 10 years has she let me or MEOW down. She is reliable, compassionate, smart and knowledgeable about the care and treatment of animals. Kelly has experience with cats, dogs, and Alberta wildlife through her various volunteer roles and jobs. At MEOW she has cared for orphaned kittens, mother cats and litters, ill or injured cats, shy cats and senior cats. My cats are my family members and I feel 100% secure and happy knowing Kelly is their care giver while I am away.”
“When I go away on holiday’s I always go away feeling good and not stressed about how my guys are doing. Erin will text me how the boys are doing and its great to get those texts. I know my house and my guys are well looked after because she treats them like they are her own kitties. I have been recommending Kelly and Erin to all my friends and family. Check out the website and Facebook page and you will see how professional and knowledgeable they are with cats.”
“I highly recommend Kelly to anyone who requires a pet sitter. Kelly is incredibly personable, trustworthy and of course amazing with animals. One of my cats required special medications and treatments and Kelly was able to administer both very well. She is very attentive and caring in every way. In addition to taking great care of my pets, Kelly also takes good care of my home when I’m away. She also donates a $1 from every visit to MEOW Foundation as she cares deeply for not only the pets in her care but also about animal welfare in Calgary”
“Our cat loved Erin from the first time they met. Erin spent extra time cuddling her and dealing with all of her particular needs. We didn’t ask her to do that. She did it on her own. Erin was gentle and kind to her and confidently gave her the thyroid medication every day when we were on vacation. I can’t tell you the value of that peace of mind when you’re a 1000 miles away from home.”
“Erin is very flexible and has never complained about driving from her home far in the SE to our home in the SW. We asked her to visit our cat twice a day and she did it faithfully every day, in snow or not snow. I can only imagine how much driving that was.”
“Erin has an amazing knowledge of cat behaviors and medical treatments. I have 100% faith that Erin could deal with any sudden, unforeseen cat emergency appropriately without freaking out or doing the wrong thing. Erin showed us the right/best practices/clinical way of administering oral medications. We always learn a lot from her. She is super capable.”
“We completely trust Erin. We’ve never had a problem or concern with Erin. She did everything we asked her to do, with no complaints, compromises or issues. Erin is always professional and pleasant to deal with.”
“I just wanted to thank you so much for watching the kitties and the house. You did amazing. It’s so nice having that safe feeling that there is someone around for them when we’re away.”
“I emailed Scarlett Francis looking for someone to watch over my cat while I took a holiday. Immediately I heard back from Kelly and arrangements were made for Erin to come meet us. My cat is elderly and I was hesitant to leave him for so long. I was in Asia for 2 weeks and had the peace of mind knowing that my cat was well cared for. Erin sent me updates almost daily (even a video of him playing!) which gave me such a feeling of peace while I was away – I could truly enjoy the time away from home. Even more, I returned to a happy cat who was healthy and playful.”
