Q. What are the advantages of hiring a professional pet sitter, cat sitter, or dog walker rather than having a family member, friend, or neighbor to care for my pets?
A. We have been providing professional pet care 7 days per week and 365 days per year since 2008. By hiring a professional pet sitter (like the Content Critter) you will not have to ask untrained or reluctant friends, neighbors, or family to care for your pet(s). There is peace of mind knowing that your pet will be well cared for by professionals. We get many calls from frantic pet parents who tell us their friend, neighbor, or part-time pet sitter canceled at the last minute. Since we opened for business in 2008, we have NEVER canceled service for anyone, and we can GUARANTEE that you will not be our first.

Q. How do I pay for services?
A. We accept all major credit cards as well as cash, checks, and PayPal and Venmo. We can also debit any bank account. This is all done though your secure online account. If you want total convenience, you can set your account to bill automatically after services are performed and you will be emailed a paid invoice receipt. Unlike many other pet care companies, we never charge a convenience fee for using a credit card.
Q. Do I need to give you a key to our home?
A. No, we prefer you don’t give us a key because we feel your key is more secure in a lock box on your property then in one of our cars. We offer our clients a FREE $30 metal secure key lock box with a resetable 4 digit combination code. Some clients hang it from a gas meter pipe or the central A/C power line or a side or back door. The steel hanger shackle is removable allowing a clean look when mounted with supplied screws to any vertical surface. Some clients mount it to a deck support post or the garage door jamb next to the remote door opener panel. Our clients love having a lock box for those times when they accidently lock themselves out of the house. If you do NOT want a FREE key lock box, then you will need to provide us with two (2) copies of your house key. One will be kept in our office as a backup and the other one is for the sitter.
