I have not forgotten what it is like to work those long hours and not having a pet sitter. On my last job we often worked "half days," those long 12 hour days. We called them "half days." At the time, add in an hour long commute and that only left time to eat, sleep, and shower. It would have been nice to have had a local Cleveland Pet Sitter on my speed dial.
Of course those kind of "half days," are long gone now, but being a pet owner at that time I have never forgotten what it felt like leaving a member of my furry family alone that long, often for days at a time. Trying to coordinate their care schedule with a high demand job and a friend or neighbor's schedule too. I have not pushed those feelings to far aside and that is why I founded The Finicky Feline & Fido, LLC.

What Is the Secret to Finding the Perfect Pet Sitter?
Elizabeth R came to us in the summer of 2016. She has extensive experience with dogs having high anxiety, lots of training experience and has come to adore felines!
My cat Randy & I have been a client of Finicky Feline & Fido's for many years and have had their wonderful service at least twice a year for extended time's. Beth & her new employee Elizabeth continue to provide the most awesome service a pet owner could ask for. I would never consider anyone else! If you've had concerns that your dog or cat might have needs that go beyond the normal pet sitting circumstance this is also the company to call. Beth has been through several health issues with my cat which required medicine, and watchful care-I did not hesitate to leave him in her care, not for a moment!
