We've been using Mike for a number of years now and wouldn't trust anyone else. Now that our cat is elderly and arthritic its' gives us peace of mind to know Mike is checking on her. We love getting the photos each day too.

I'm so thankful for Mike! He has taken care of my cat, Lizzy, many times over the past year and is always highly professional, thoughtful, and thorough. I love getting daily emails from him while I'm away. He includes pics of Lizzy in every email. I can fully enjoy my time away knowing that Lizzy is well taken care of. Mike is also super responsive via email. Thanks, MIke!

Mike is by far the best cat sitter we have ever had. We have been working with Mike and Sparkle Cat Sitting since 2015. You can tell he is good by how well our cats respond to him. We always joke that the cats are going to be disappointed when it’s just us at the door and not Mike. He gives them special treats and individual playtime. We also like the fact that Mike is certified in pet CPR. He always sends daily updates with pictures or videos and you can tell how well he has bonded with our cats by how much they trust him. We would highly recommend Mike if you want empathetic, sincere, and reliable care for your pet while you are away. Thanks Mike, you are great at what you do and you deserve a 5-star rating!

Pure & simple, Mike is a top-shelf cat sitter. He just got done caring for my formerly feral cat Dennis for 10 days, and even managed to get the guy to come out of the closet while he was here ... something I did NOT expect would happen. I received daily updates (with pictures) the entire time I was away and did not worry even once whether things were okay back home. Mike is conscientious, professional, and brings some fun along for the cat(s) he is caring for. Highly, highly recommend!!!

Mike was our cat sitter for our old lady Kitty in the Inner Richmond. He is very reliable and I never needed to worry about Kitty while out of town, sometimes for up to two weeks. He'd send great reports after each visit, with photos and details on how Kitty was doing. I would absolutely recommend Mike for cat sitting!

Mike is as reliable and professional as they come! I was super nervous leaving my kittens at home for a week but it went super smoothly. His daily emails with pictures eased my mind and allowed me to enjoy my vacation. I've referred him to a few of my friends.

Simply put, Mike is the best. Very professional and takes his job seriously, but still makes time to be playful with our cats. He sends very thoughtful daily updates with pictures so we can rest easy knowing our cats are safe and happy. He immediately built a report with them and they seem so happy in his care. He is also incredibly responsive and reliable, which is so important when you are leaving your fur babies with someone. We are so glad we found Mike’s service and already booked him for a second trip before we had even finished our one because we were so happy with service! Do yourself a favor and book Mike when you are out of town. You’ll appreciate the peace of mind knowing your cats are so well looked after.

Mike is a PRO. I feel incredibly lucky that we found him -- we live in Inner Sunset. I had adopted two senior cats and they were settling into our home. I had a weekend trip planned, and I didn't want to move them into a new place for the weekend. Mike came by -- fed them, played, and even alerted me to a medical issue that had popped up (ear infection) which helped me get my kitten into the hospital earlier and treated. He took photos, was on time and dependable. We are so lucky to have found Mike and it released a lot of stress and guilt for us to enjoy the trip. Thank you Mike!!

Sparkle Cat Sitting...I cant say enough how wonderful this service is to my peace of mind. I have 2 cats that are very set in their ways and the epitome of scaredy! By the second day I was getting pictures of my babies and Mike petting them! I also appreciate that he takes the cat waste to the trash everyday and leaves my house swept and tidy. I cant recommend his business enough!

Mike has been taking care of my cats for a year and half now. He always responsive to emails, helps out on short-notice, sends detailed daily reports with pictures, and you can tell, loves his work! I’m so happy to have found Sparkle Cat Sitting and highly recommend it to anyone in San Francisco with cats. I always feel confident and comfortable leaving my cats in Mike’s care!

Mike has pet-sat for me many times, and I feel really lucky to have such a great professional looking after my cat. He is super detailed, communicative, reliable, and really likes and understands cats. I have a senior cat who needs daily medication, so it's important to me that my petsitter is someone I can trust. I can't overstate how much peace of mind it gives me knowing that my boy is in good hands with Mike when I'm away.

I traveled 1/2 way around the world and felt relaxed to know my cats were being taken care of by Sparkle Cat Sitting. I highly recommend them! I was sent pictures and updates everyday. I was informed on how they were doing, if they were eating well, and their behavior which helped me to feel secure they were in good hands and gave me the opportunity to enjoy my vacation more. When I returned home the litter boxes were freshly changed and no cat messes to be found. Sweet! Feeling such a sense of trust is priceless. It's not easy finding people to trust in your home and with your pets. I trust Sparkle cat Sitting and will use their services again.

I have a very shy kitty. She has so much personality around my fiancé & I, but sadly shuts down & hides in front of strangers, particularly men. It's been tough finding people we can trust to care for her when we're out of town since she requires a lot of patience & understanding. It's also tough to trust friends to care for your pet since they mean well, but usually don't have the most experience caring for a shy cat or are preoccupied with their own busy lives. Mike has alleviated all our worries! Our cat Celia is still a work in progress, but she's starting to warm up to Mike! He has taken a lot of time to just sit quietly near her and create a safe space for her. He's also given us great advice to help create a calmer space for her. Finally on one of their last visits, she came out to greet Mike! I can't recommend him enough. He cleans the litter, even vaccuums, changes the water bowl, spends actual quality time getting to know your kitty instead of just feeding him or her & leaving, and sends pictures and daily reports of them so you don't feel too homesick for them or have to worry. He is such a professional & the best cat sitter we have ever had. You will definitely not regret using his services!

I used Mike as my cat sitter for about a year before I moved away from San Francisco. He is a unique blend of super professional and phenomenal with animals. Booking with him was always a breeze: he’s super responsive, flexible with scheduling, and followed through on everything. He emails updates with pictures and/or videos of your cats each time he visits them and he clearly cares about their well-being. My 2 cats were always so calm and clearly well cared for when I returned from being gone. The peace of mind of having someone like Mike watching my cats while I was gone was priceless. Thanks so much for keeping my cats happy and healthy in my absence! I wish I could transport you down to LA!

Mike at Sparkle Cat Sitting is AMAZING! He is our first hired sitter and we could not have asked for anyone better. He is quick to respond and extremely reliable. His attention to detail is sharp and consistent and you can tell he actually cares about our little kitty. Cannot recommend him enough!

Mike really is a cat person and you can tell right away. Not only will he take care of the necessities for your little kitties but he will bond with them and look out for their comfort while you're away. Highly recommended! We first reached out to Mike about a year ago to watch our new kitty who was only about 7 months old at the time. My boyfriend and I both had cats growing up but this was our first one on our own and we were definitely nervous to have someone new come in and look after him, but after meeting Mike the first time we could tell our little guy would be in good hands. Mike will send you updates and photos every time he visits and you can tell he has an attention to detail that makes you feel confident your kitties are safe and comfortable. He is really easy to coordinate with and saved us a couple times when we were leaving for a weekend on short notice!

Mike is wonderful - I can’t recommend him enough! When we leave town we can rest easy knowing that our 2 cats are in great hands. Once we return, they are always very happy and non-stressed. We love the daily photo updates and can tell they enjoy his visits! He’s also very easy to communicate with - very professional and quick to respond. We have used him multiple times and will continue to do so!!

Mike is one of the best cat sitters I have ever had! He is great with my cat, who usually dislikes strangers, but she somehow seems to like him. Mike is very accessible and easy to get in touch with, and he sends detailed email updates every day that you're gone. He's also really observant and knowledgeable about cats in particular and has a lot of great tips about which toys and play time activities my cat liked best while I was gone. I especially appreciate how thorough and professional Mike is. He thinks of and prepares for every possibility, making sure there are multiple key copies, an emergency contact, that you've made it home safely, etc. There's absolutely nothing left for me to worry about when I leave for my trip!

Great service! I left my young cat home alone for a few days over the summer and was really impressed with their quality of service and professionalism. Super convenient and reliable pet sitter for SF residents.

I feel extremely fortunate to have had Mike's services for the past 6 weeks while I was out of state. My husband was at home but he is disabled and needed help caring for our two cats. Mike was absolutely reliable and concerned about the cats and us humans. He kept the litter box and area clean, monitored the cats health, played with them, watered plants and took out trash on pick-up days. He spent time visiting with my husband and did errands for him. Mike not only took excellent care of the cats but went above and beyond the usual duties of cat sitting. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike and Sparkle Cat Sitting.

I cannot recommend Sparkle Cat Sitting enough! Mike is pleasant, professional, and quickly responsive. Even more importantly, our cats love him. We have one that runs from basically everybody (including us sometimes) but Mike quickly won her over and she now greets him when he comes to visit! His daily updates with pictures and tales of his visit are a welcome reassurance when we are travelling. On the one occasion that Mike was not available to cat sit for us he was very helpful in providing recommendations for another sitter, who also was a joy. If you need someone to watch your kits, I highly recommend entrusting them to Mike's care.

His service goes way beyond just feeding & checking your pet. He offers complete piece of mind. With his daily updates (with photos) to observations of pet behavior, bottom line, he's concern for your pet will be genuine. We had him watch …

Mike did an excellent job cat sitting for 11 days while my husband and I were out of town. Our cat Lucky warmed up to him right away during the orientation visit which put me at ease. Mike e-mails every day to report on the cat, and he always sends photos and sometimes videos. The photos and videos made me feel assured that Lucky was being taken care of. Not only did Mike take care of our Lucky's food, water, and litter situation, he also took out the trash and brought in Amazon packages for us. Prices are reasonable too. I would definitely recommend Sparkle Cat Sitters :)

Mike doesn’t just toss your cat some food a leaves, he plays with your cat and sends you reports and videos every time he visits. It’s a huge relief to see your cat happy when you are gone. That’s what you are getting when you go with Mike.

Sparkle Cat Sitting really takes the cake. I miss my cat so much when I travel and Mike's photos and amazingly thorough updates made it a lot easier on me. It's easy to tell that Mike not only understands cat behavior but he really cares about their well-being. Highly recommend Sparkle Cat Sitting!
