Sitting for Critters is not Just for Dogs.

Oh no, there are dozens of beloved pets both great and small that need to be looked in on.  Cats certainly come to mind.  Just because your kitty seems like a loner does not mean he or she wants to be left alone for days.  To a cat, a clean litter box is like a clean bathroom to us, so why subject her to that?

Beyond that there are exotic birds that live for decades and should not be left to sit by themselves for days on end.  There are hamsters, guinea pigs, bearded dragons (cute as heck in their own way!), snakes, etc.  Any and all mammals and reptiles need looking after if you are gone for more than a day or two.

Enter Critter Sitters.  Sandy and her amazing staff really do care for all creatures great and small and know how important they are to your family structure.  Monty Python had a cute skit back in a day that said with tongue in cheek “you wouldn’t want to come home to a dead cat!”.  Let your pets enjoy the comforts of their home while you are gone.  Call Critter Sitters serving the far Western Suburbs of Chicagoland at (630) 844-9554.

Considering Pet Insurance.

Should you carry pet insurance?  Well, do you carry human insurance?  How important are your four-legged children to you and your family?  You could rationalize that we only have these loved-ones for a dozen years or so, but do we want to say good-bye too soon because we can’t afford to treat an affliction or injury?

Here are some reasons to have pet insurance –

1.  It allows you to pick your veterinarian.
2.  It does not discriminate by breed or age…nearly any dog or cat can be insured.
3.  Prevents dipping into emergency funds that were earmarked for something else.
4.  Peace of mind.  Need we say more?

If you believe in pet sitting services, it would also seem that you would be a strong proponent of pet insurance.  We at Critter Sitters have “no dog in the fight”.  We just want you to have your beloved family member for as long as you can.  Please visit www.alltopcrittersitters.com to discover who we are and what we believe in.  Give us a call at (630) 844-9554.

What are you Planning for 2018?

I’ll bet you that you did not plan on having a house fire!  Jill of Critter Sitters did not either.  She was entreated to watch over a family’s four-legged children while the humans traveled during the Christmas season to visit their human friends.  Along the way, potential disaster struck.  The Christmas lights started a house fire.

Now, understand Jill’s job as a representative of Critter Sitters was to watch the pets.  However, when the outside lights started a fire Jill acted quickly.  She contacted the fire department and, of course, made sure that the cats were okay.  The fire fighters did their job and Jill rose to the occasion because that is her call of duty!

When you hire Critter Sitters, serving Elburn, Sugar Grove and many adjacent Western Suburban Chicagoland communities, you are hiring responsible people who will care for your home as well as your pets.  Why would you call anyone else?  Sandy at Critter Sitters is the boss of this amazing team.  Give her a call at (630) 844-9554.

Vetting your Sitter.

We could say…vet your vet…you should do that too, but here we are talking about the humans that you trust to watch, walk, and generally baby-sit your four-legged children.  Who are they exactly?  Will they care as much about my pet as I do?  These are critical questions that need comforting answers.  So, make a New Year’s resolution!

For example, what vets do they use and trust?  What adoption services do they “adopt” and endorse?  Do they have the expertise to care for your loved one in case of an emergency?  Are they “friends” of the ASPCA and the American Kennel Club.  And, above all, who are the pet-sitters that are a part of their team.

All of these answers and more can be found at this website…alltopcrittersitters.com.  For decades Sandy has been caring for pets in the Elburn, Sugar Grove, and surrounding areas of Western Suburban Chicago.  She has built a team of caring, loving individuals who have been thoroughly vetted.  Call Sandy to arrange an in-home visit at (630) 844-9554.
