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. joined us as a backup sitter in July 2016. She has come to enjoy being both an evening dog walker on the Westside of Cleveland and cat sitter. She is an active athlete, gardener, and wine lover. She works full-time in the financial services industry.
She is owned by her favorite dog Oscar and has extensive experience working with pets that have high anxiety. We're very lucky to have her on board!
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!
