Lisa introduced Oscar to his now favorite toy in the world and has offered useful tips for some of our old guy’s maladies. We’re so glad to have such a reliable and thoughtful caregiver!

Photograph of OscarI’ve been a client of Lisa’s for about 5 years and I have been thoroughly impressed with her professionalism and availability. When I leave for a trip, I feel confident that my cats are in good care, and when I return they’re happy as can be!

Ollie photographLisa McMaster is my favorite pet sitter of all time! I have used her services now for at least 8 years. As any owner of pets, it is always difficult to leave your favorite furry friends at home. I find this very stressful. Lisa has always helped me ease the pain of leaving for several reasons. First, she is extremely conscientious and loyal. Second, she notifies me on regular occasions regarding the welfare of my cats while I am gone, so I tend to worry less about them.  Third, my three cats love her because she loves them and gives them the attention and care they crave while I am away.  I am not sure I would ever leave if I could not count on Lisa. I can rest easy while away and this enables me to travel and actually enjoy my trips.

We have had Lisa as a “kittysitter” for probably 4 years. We have a “difficult” situation. Our cat is diabetic and requires insulin twice a day, which was no problem for Lisa. She is very caring.She would always spend more time than we paid for if FatKitty wouldn’t eat (so she could do the shot), and she obviously really loved FK. I highly recommend her.

Princess Miko

Photo of Princess MikoLisa has been flexible with visits and communicates very well! You can tell she has so much love and care to give. No matter the length of trip, when I get home, I know tell my Princess Miko was deeply cared for – more than just feeding her, but play time too! I don’t worry that Princess will get lonely and rest assured that she’s in loving hands.

Photo of EuniceI am so glad I found Lisa and Pets Are People Too! She is reliable, trustworthy and her prices are very reasonable. She is quick to respond to our needs and our cat, Eunice, loves her, too. I have recommended her to a couple of neighbors who were also searching for a pet sitter. Two thumbs up!

Lisa McMaster has watched my pets for the past four years. She does an excellent job. She is very conscientious, thorough and my pets absolutely love her. I never worry at all when I am out of town even for long periods of time. If you are looking for somebody to take care of your pets while you are away I would highly recommend Lisa McMaster.
