"My dog, Macky, spent 5 days at Cathy's Tender Loving Pet care LLC in October 2014.  Cathy knew how I loved seeing pics of him and sent many pictures. She knew I loved an update and sent daily updates on how he was doing and what he was doing. She also knew that it was best not to worry me about small things. We spent time when we picked up Macky talking about some behavioral issues and she offered us  good recommendations and suggestions for behavior interventions. She also gave us some suggestions for dental hygiene which were helpful. 

Best yet was to know that Macky was loved and cared for. Cathy let Macky sleep on her bed, and he got many walks in addition to lots of outdoor playtime in her backyard - EVEN IN THE RAIN - which he normally hates! Cathy's rates are reasonable and she even offered to help us out by picking him up if needed. She was very flexible with her schedule and our "Meet and Greet" session! Thank you Cathy for taking such good are of my puppy!!" -Lizzie Zimmer-Farbowitz, Teaneck, NJ

"I met Cathy this summer when she watched my Maltese when we went to China for three weeks.  I called her in desperation a few days before we left as the sitter we planned to use backed out on us. Luckily for us, a friend of a friend referred us to Cathy, who is great with little dogs. 

Laci had so much fun there and really bonded with Cathy's dog, Apollo. They really did some hard-core running around together, frolicking in the pool and napping in the shade. I think Laci had more fun then we did in China - and her vacation was so much cheaper!  When we brought Laci home she was happy to see us but missed her pal Apollo so much she actually moped around the house for a few days.  Just wait until Laci realizes she's going to spend Thanksgiving with her pals at Cathy's. She will be so excited!"  -- Sharon Wu, New Providence, NJ

"Good Petter Sitters are hard to find, so we feel grateful that Ana Amaral Casasus referred Cathy to us.  Thank you Cathy for taking such wonderful care of our dog Cooper.  Knowing that Cooper was so well cared for each and every day allowed us to really relax and not worry about him while we were on vacation. The next time we are in need of a Pet Sitter, we will call you.  I will be recommending your services to all of our friends and family who have dogs!" -- Monica Contreras, Cranford, NJ

"My dogs have been with Cathy a few times now, the most recent for almost two straight weeks. Ginger, my 15 or 16 years old Australian Cattle Dog is diabetic, blind, partly deaf, and needs to be carried up and down stairs for the most part (and is 50 pounds). She takes insulin shots twice a day. Baxter, my Sydney Terrier can be skittish around strange dogs. Cathy gives Ginger her shots with no problem, helps Baxter feel secure, guides Ginger around and picks her up as needed. If these dogs could talk I'm afraid they'd say they like it there better than in their own home."   --Anthony Klick, Elizabeth, NJ

"Cathy's TLPC came to our house for a week to care for our Mastiff while we were away on vacation. We cannot say enough positive things about the love & attention she gave to Bella. Cathy is honest, professional & loves the animals as if they were her own and treats them as such! We appreciated the regular updates & pictures via text message. It made being away from her a little easier, especially for our kids. Our friends have called on Cathy for pet sitting as well and they are more than pleased with their experiences.If ever     you need someone to watch your pet, in your own home or not, Cathy's TLPC is the place to call. We won't use anyone else!"  --Kristen Williams, Elizabeth, NJ

"Our nearly 16 year old Miniature Schnauzer, Emily had such a good time at Cathy's place that I felt guilty about bringing her home at the end of our vacation! We received frequent updates (and photos!) which let us know that our little dog was happy and safe. Cathy even got her to eat all of her food at every meal, which is an ongoing issue for us. She is a caring and loving professional, whose considerable experience, expertise and training combine to make her one terrific pet sitter. I highly recommend Cathy's Tender Loving Pet Care. It will be the one and only place we take our dog, and I know that Emily approves our choice!"  --Robyn Azriel, Elizabeth, NJ

"Cathy watched our pets/house for a week while we were away. We couldn't be happier with our experience! There was great communication and updates via text during the week we were gone. When we returned home, our cat and dog were excited to see us but also calm and content. They were obviously well cared for! In addition, our plants were well maintained and the house felt aired out and clean. I can't say enough good things!! Highly recommended! Such a huge relief to not have to worry about pet care while we travel!"   --Michelle Tolentino, Roselle Park, NJ

"Cathy took care of our puppy Roxy for a week and we couldn't be happier with her services. If you are looking for a loving and caring person to watch after your pet Cathy's TLPC is the place for you."   --Claudia Lamkin, Glen Ridge, NJ

"Cathy watched my dog Lucky for me so that we could have a very much needed "family day trip"...We couldn't be happier with our experience! She even sent a picture of Lucky while she was "hanging" out with him. She definitely keeps you updated and in touch...Lucky liked her very much....which in turn made us comfortable being able to go knowing he would be in good hands...Thank you Cathy!!!"  --Theresa Loneker, Kenilworth, NJ 

"We were away for a week and Cathy came to our house to take care of our fur baby. Cathy kept us very informed, sent pictures and went above and beyond caring for our dog. She also took care of our hamster and fed the fish. We would highly recommend Cathy for all your pet care needs. It was wonderful to go away on vacation knowing our baby was well taken care of. We will definitely be using her services again."  --Linda Koski, Kenilworth, NJ

"Our dogs just returned from a stay at Cathy’s. She really took care of the dogs. You can relax while you are away to know that your dogs are in good hands. She pays attention to their needs and works to make sure your pets are well taken care of. I wouldn’t have recommended her to others if I wasn’t completely comfortable with her care."  --Hope Schauer, Scotch Plains, NJ

"My little Heidi loves to "vacation" at Cathy's TLPC. She enjoys playing with the other dogs, and she receives excellent care and attention from Cathy. She (Heidi) is looking forward to many return visits. You will not feel guilty leaving your dogs with Cathy when on a holiday. They will have a wonderful time!"  --Eloise Ehrl-Corbo, Elizabeth, NJ

"What a great service for Bentley our black lab who believes he is still 5 months old. He loved going to Cathy's and it was great knowing he was being cared for while my daughter was on vacation and we were at work. He absolutely loved it. Will definitely be utilizing Cathy's Tender Loving Pet Care. I highly recommend."  --Ann Mortimer, Union, NJ

"Dear Cathy, Thank you for the excellent care that you gave to our dog during our vacation. Libby had a great time with you! Libby and your dog Indy get along so well, and we would never think to board our Libby anywhere else when we go away. I highly recommend you to anybody that needs your services."  --Sofia Carbalto, Elizabeth, NJ

"I have only the highest praise for Cathy and her support team! I left my dog, Ginger, with Cathy for ten days and was absolutely confident that Ginger was well taken care, entertained and happy. Cathy combines a great balance of thoroughness and organization with the flexibility needed to take care of a house full of dogs. Her frequent updates and pictures helped us relax on our vacation, knowing that Ginger was in excellent hands."  --Susan Fretthold Roberts, Union, NJ

"Cathy and her team watched my two dogs at her home while we were on vacation and we were very pleased! She took wonderful care of both of my dogs and catered to their individual needs. Even though we were away for a week, the updates, photos and videos we received allowed us to keep in close contact from afar. Our family would highly recommend Cathy, her team and services for anyone looking for that extra tender loving care."  --Patti Kirk-Leon, Union, NJ
