The Perfect Pet Sitter by Toby and Tiki

Dear Readers,

Our mom left us to go to Hawaii for ten days.  She didn't even offer to take us along, not that we would have enjoyed the plane trip, but Hawaii has lots of birds and fish so we would have enjoyed ourselves.  Usually when she is gone, Lori, Mom's veterinarian daughter, comes by to feed us.  She's okay but being a vet, she still makes us a little queasy.  Anyway, since they were going to Hawaii together, Mom needed to find us a sitter, and she hit the jackpot.  A friend gave her the name of Cozy Critters Pet Sitters of Bellaire, and so Beth became our sitter. 

We liked her right away, and Toby, who is the friendlier cat of the two of us, immediately jumped up beside her and licked her arm.  We weren't even pretending, planning to hiss at her when our mom was out of the picture. 

She gave Mom a little brochure with tips on how to prepare for your sitter.  What a good idea.  We think all pet sitters should be that thoughtful.

She came by, gave us our food and left a little diary, telling about our visits.  She thinks we're sweet.  We think we're in love.

If you live in the Houston area, check out Beth at   If you don't, eat your heart out.

If you can't go to Hawaii, it sounds like you have the next best thing: a good kind pet-sitter who loves you and will care for you.

Nice post. I'm very lucky when it comes to fur-baby sitting. My son lives a mile in one direction and my closest friend (and dog lover) lives a half mile in the other. We all trade sitting favors.

But next year, vacation somewhere fun for the cars. :-)

My, I am impressed that you two cats are such good writers. Something must have rubbed off from your mom.

Thanks for stopping by. Toby and Tiki
Margaret, FYI, we wrote this in "Meow" and our mom translated into English. (Such a good mom).
