I've used the professional services of Kitty Meow Meow for pet sitting and pet walking for my dogs and cat since 2006. Before the first pet sit, Heidi came over to meet me and my pets. She interacted very easily with my old dog and cat right from the start and was very thorough in asking questions about every aspect of their care and personalities.

My old dog had issues with arthritis. Heidi was able to adapt to her ever-changing needs, including medicating her, assisting her to walk, and dealing with her separation anxiety. Heidi currently is making it possible for me to raise two rather energetic pups on my busy schedule by giving them mid-day walks. Imagine trying to walk two dogs who want to go in two different directions. Heidi is very patient with them.

I've never experienced any problems or concerns when my animals are under her care. She provides as many updates as you like. She sends an email confirmation prior to her visits, checks with me when I forget to let her know that I arrived home, and texts me if any questions arise. I look forward to reading her creative descriptions of her time with the pets. Makes you feel like you were there. One of her other unique qualities, in my opinion, is that she never leaves me in a bind. If she can't take care of the requested visit, she finds a substitute for me and makes sure that I and my pets are comfortable with the new person.

In summary, Heidi takes very good care of both me and my pets. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kitty Meow Meow for your pet sitting needs.

When I found myself with a four-month-old puppy while I was on crutches, I was truly in a bind. I needed someone who could take this fuzzy ball of energy and walk her when I could not. Heidi spent time with me, asking detailed questions about commands I was trying to teach the dog despite her usual policy of only walking dogs that are leash trained. She came highly recommended from a friend who needed her dog walking services during her 12 hour long nursing shifts.

We both have found Heidi to be the most professional and caring dog walker. She has a deep and obvious love of animals, and goes to extra effort to share details of her daily walks. I have recommended Heidi to other friends, especially friends with animals who need special care. I would highly recommend Heidi again without any reservations.

My nurse friend has since moved out of state, but I know she missing Kitty Meow Meow and wishes she could find someone as dedicated, caring and professional as Heidi in her new home.

I have been a client of Heidi's (Kitty Meow Meow) for several years and use her pet sitting service many times in a year. I highly recommend Heidi if you want quality pet care and peace of mind while you are away! We have two cats, one very old who recently passed away. The older cat needed several medications, sub-cutaneous fluids, and a special diet for the past couple of years. It would have been extremely difficult for my family to leave home for more than half a day had Heidi's wonderful service not been available. Our other option would have been to board our old cat at a vet, in a cage all day, away from her other cat companion and her comfortable home. Heidi always kept in contact with us by phone or email, whichever we preferred, to let us know that things were going well, or if she had the slightest concern such as our older cat not eating well, etc. And as has been said, she always leaves detailed notes with every visit.

This past summer our family was able to travel to Ireland and we had the peace of mind knowing that Heidi would be taking care of our cats while we were away. We felt as comfortable with Heidi as we would a family member in our home and considering the tender care she's given our pets we feel like she is a part of our family. She also did extra duties such as bringing in mail, taking garbage out to the curb, and feeding our reptiles and fish! Heidi is thorough and professional through and through. I simply can't imagine finding a better pet sitter than Kitty Meow Meow!

Heidi has been providing pet care for us for several years now. She ALWAYS, exceeds our expectations. Her professionalism, attention to detail and general love for our pets is exceptional. We have a very high standard of pet care, and treat our pets like family. We know that when we leave our pets in Heidi's care they will be provided this same level of care when we are away. Heidi always leaves thoughtful notes from each visit. She often sends text messages letting us know how things are going while we are away. She is dependable and trustworthy. We feel very comfortable leaving our pets knowing she will be caring for them. If you are looking for a truly special pet sitter, we highly recommend Heidi!

I have used this business now for several years for my two elderly cats, one of whom passed away recently after suffering from cancer. Heidi and her associates have been twice-a-day pet sitters for my two kitties in their "elderly" years when both have needed twice-daily medication. One of my kitties has required 2 insulin injections per day as part of that regimen. I have used Kitty Meow Meow for both weekends and extended vacations of up to two weeks.

I have always returned to healthy, happy kitties and excellent daily notes left by Heidi or one of her associates. Given the health of my two cats, I know that they would not be as healthy and happy as they have always appeared if they had not received the excellent care that Heidi conscientiously reports upon in her notes and/or checks in with me for further direction

In addition to excellent love and care for my cats, Heidi cleans up any necessary parts of my house that might be amiss as a result of my cats, she keeps water bowls fresh and always combs my cat as part of her nurture and attention. She is a most conscientious and loving care-giver and I hope that she will always be here to provide care for my elderly cat and whatever new little kitty soul may join our family eventually.

We have been using Kitty Meow Meow since 2006. She has watched our animals on trips ranging in length from 24 hours up to two weeks. Each time we go away, we have 100% confidence that our animals are safe, fed and most importantly, well loved by Heidi. We have had many pets over these years and it astounds me each time how Heidi is able to bond so quickly with each new critter we acquire. She has an innate sense of all things 4-legged. The insightful notes she leaves for us to read when we arrive home always make me smile and remind us why it is we love to hire Kitty Meow Meow. These notes include details on their moods, activities and their interactions with one another. There was a period of time when Heidi returned home to southern Oregon and we were forced into using another pet sitter. It was not the same experience. Yeah, our pets were fed and walked, but we did not sense the intangibles that Heidi brings with her.

Before trips, there is always a reminder email to both me and my wife, confirming what we discussed in terms of timing and amount of visits. It is a good chance to clarify or change what we might have wanted.

Bottom line: if you care about your pets and love them as family and want to travel free from worry or fear that they are safe, Kitty Meow Meow is the ticket.

Updating my reviews:

We have used Heidi's catsitting services for years. Each and every time, she has left detailed notes with each visit to our cats; she has called and texted us during visits to our house with even slight concerns over our cats' health. She is deeply caring, conscientious, and always goes above and beyond what we ask of her. Her empathy for the kitties is amazing! Heidi is not the kind of person who would treat care of animals casually; she would cause herself pain before she'd endanger a pet.

It's always risky hiring a stranger to care for pets, but we feel safe leaving our cats with Heidi. On many occasions, we have had other friends and relatives stop by -- not with the intent of checking up, but to help entertain the cats. We always received reports back of Heidi on the job, cheerfully keeping our babies healthy and happy. Heidi was not expecting these visits so certainly wasn't trying to keep up appearances.

We have hired many pet sitters over the years. There have been many bad experiences. We'd be satisfied (if not thrilled) for the minimum, i.e. a sitter keeping the cats fed, clean and moderately sane. Heidi cares for our neurotic herd as if they were her own. We feel VERY LUCKY to have found her!

Heidi was amazing from start to finish. I was gone for one whole month this Christmas and when I got home my cat didn't even seem to realize I was gone. Usually when I get home after a long trip my cat seems like she missed me so much and is freaking out. Not this time though. My cat was in good hands.

Throughout my trip, I never once had to worry about my cat. I got emails with pictures of my cat every other day while I was gone and with a description of exactly how she was doing. I couldn't be happier with Kitty Meow Meow. She came over on the interview visit with a clipboard and wrote down every detail about how best to take care of my cat. She was organized, thoughtful, nice, and I felt good about her being in my house. She even watered my plants. I couldn't ask for more from a cat sitter.

Most importantly, I feel that the price is worth it. Sure, I could pay a friend less, but I know my friend won't be there for 30 minutes, playing and cuddling with my cat every other day. Also, Heidi bought my cat a laser pointer to play with her and she left it with us as a Christmas present from Santa Paws. I trust Kitty Meow Meow and am so grateful she is here to serve Corvallis.

We are extremely pleased with the care Heidi gave our two cats during a two week period this year.

We had a two-week vacation planned during the Christmas holidays, and our previously-schedule house/pet sitter fell through at the last minute. We contacted Heidi with very short notice, and she fit us into her busy schedule.

She came for an onsite visit before we left, and did a very thorough walk-through of the house and questioned us extensively about the needs of our two cats while taking lots of notes. On our request, she also watered a couple of indoor plants, and refilled our bird feeders while we were gone. We requested that she give us an update midway through our trip, which she did. We appreciated knowing that things were going well.

When we returned, it seemed like the cats hadn't even noticed we were gone - they were in great shape and very relaxed. Heidi took care of everything we had agreed upon, plus a little more. She also wrote an extremely detailed report of the two weeks we were away, describing how the cats were behaving and related info.

We will definitely hire Heidi again.

Heidi went above and beyond. Not only did she give wonderful and attentive care to my cat Peppermint, she also took in my mail, watered my plants, and checked my water pipes during a cold snap last winter--She really was thorough!

My cat is shy around strangers, but she came out for Heidi during the visits, so I know that Peppermint felt really comfortable with Heidi being there. I was very grateful to get daily updates from Heidi via email so I could relax knowing all was ok.

I will definitely be using Heidi's services again!

I can't recommend Heidi enough!

We were in a jam, planning to take a vacation without a neighbor or a friend available, but Heidi and Kitty Meow Meow totally saved the day! A thorough and professional consultation before we left was reassuring, going over details that in the routine of living with your feline companion that you don't even think about! She also asked if we wanted her to check in with us during our 2-day vacation, which was awesome.

We received a text each day letting us know that she had been at the house, and how our cat was doing, which both was really cute and put us at ease. Upon our return, we had an EXTENSIVE summary of how the visits went and one very happy cat!

If you ever need a pet sitter, you can sleep easily if you go with Kitty Meow Meow! Thanks again Heidi!

Heidi takes care of my tribe whenever I'm away, and when our vacations coincided, she provided a substitute. It is so reassuring to know she's looking after my beasts!

Very professional service. I was moved at our initial interview by the depth of the profile she set up for us.

Heidi sends me emails periodically if I wish, and that's a tremendous help in keeping the separation anxiety under control. I've had sitters in four different states, and none have delivered better service! She could have named it, "Kitty purrrr purrrr". We are happy cats.

I can't believe I forgot to write a review before this. I genuinely feel terrible and I have no excuse. We've had Heidi look after our cats many times in the last few years, and she is AMAZING! I wish I could give more stars! She goes far above and beyond what I would expect in her conscientious care of our four cats. This last time we were gone for two weeks, and I was decidedly neurotic about my babies; two of them have been having health issues and feeding/snack time/litterbox issues got rather complicated. If any of this drove Heidi nuts I never had a hint of it. If anything she took better care of them than I do. She is sweet and attentive and truly cares about the personalities, needs, and happiness of her charges.

I've had bad experiences with petsitting services in the past, so if I'd found a reliable caregiver this time, I would be satisfied. Heidi is so much more than reliable I haven't the words.

Excellent pet sitting service! Heidi, the owner, is very thorough. Rates are reasonable as well. I found Kitty Meow Meow by googling "Corvallis pet sitting" and was a bit hesitant to use a pet sitter without knowing anything about them. But after our initial meeting with Heidi to discuss pet care before we left for our vacation, i felt very comfortable leaving my pets with her for the weekend. We came home to very happy pets and a complete report of how they were while we were gone. At our request, we could even get an e-mail halfway through our trip saying the pets were doing well, which was a great bonus. We'll use Kitty Meow Meow again, definitely recommended!
