Karen gets my highest recommendation for pet sitting services! I have two cats, 15 and 16 years old, and she did a wonderful job of getting to know them and letting them get to know her, gaining their trust, and then caring for them while I was out of town. One of my kitties is shy with new people, has diabetes, and receives an insulin shot every day. The other kitty is underweight for a couple of reasons, requires a lot of attention and encouragement while eating, and receives a pill almost every day.
Karen carefully observed all of my tried-and-true procedures and asked lots of questions during our meet-and-greet. She was diligent and patient enough and used the appropriate techniques to gain the cats’ trust. We ultimately decided on two additional visits where she came in, cared for the cats, and let the cats get to know her while I was still in town but away from the house. By the time I actually left town, both cats were comfortable and Karen’s visits went very well! Her approach and success gained my trust, too. We will definitely and confidently call upon Karen again and again. ~L.C.
I highly recommend Karen Masaoka. Our two cats can be shy, but they recognized a “cat lady” from the very first visit. Karen is experienced, professional and accommodating. We feel very comfortable knowing our cats are in good hands when we are away. ~Kathy, Cottonwood
Excellent! Very trustworthy and felt comfortable having her in my home. Will definitely use again. ~Gail, Cottonwood
We were recently in quite the bind as we had out-of-town plans within a month but our over-booked pet sitter was unable to come care for our three kitties! Fortunately, she referred us to Karen, who was ready and willing to help us without hesitation! She was attentive to our needs and eager to learn about each of our cats during her “meet and greet” appointment, so my anxiety level dropped in a heart beat. Since she only sits for felines, Karen is very attuned to cat-specific needs and behavior, which really appealed to me. Cat owners will appreciate that special attention and respect from a sitter who doesn’t have the intimidating smell of a dog, which is often a big turn off for kitties! I highly recommend Cats Only Pet Sitting for cat-only households like mine!! ~Ria, Rancho Montecito
I am so grateful, I found Karen. My previous cat sitter bailed on me just days before I was going out of town. I called my vet, to see if they had any sitter referrals and Karen happened to answer the phone. It was my lucky day! She was available to take care of my 2 kitties and am so thankful. From the moment I met Karen I knew my girls would be well taken care of. I received daily updates and pictures while I was out of town and when I returned home, I had a report on each of Karen’s visits.
Karen’s care for my kitties didn’t end when I returned home. Recently, I have started giving one of my kitties medication and I am not very good at it. During our meet and greet I had mentioned to Karen, I was open to suggestions on better methods for administering pills. After taking care of my kitties, Karen came back to my home and showed me a better way to give the medication. She has gone above and beyond being just a cat sitter. She is truly passionate about providing exceptional care to kitties. ~Dara D.
Karen was very professional from the initial consultation to looking after our 2 cats. She texted me every day with pictures and updates, and left a written summary for the week. I would highly recommend her. ~Brenda, Hidden River
I feel so much more comfortable on my trips since working with Karen. I get pictures (or videos) for each visit. I’ve even received smiling, happy pictures of my adult cat who normally doesn’t like strangers. If you live in Parker and are looking for a cat sitter, I would absolutely recommend Karen! ~Laura, Vela Meridian
I have a 18 1/2 year old cat who is not a fan of strangers and requires some special care. I was very worried about leaving her alone for 8 days and wanted to make sure someone who was cat-specific was in charge of her. I am so happy that we found Karen and that she was able to take care of her while we were gone. It made me feel so much better that Karen specifically focuses on cats and is incredibly thorough in getting background and behavioral information for the cat(s) she is watching. The meet and greet beforehand was also a great way to walk through what our cat needed and point out hiding spots, etc. Also, the report at the end and the updates while we were gone was fantastic. I would not hesitate in recommending Cats Only Pet Sitting to anyone who needs a cat sitter. I feel that Karen went above and beyond what we needed and I would not hesitate to contact her again if we need someone to watch our cat. ~Christine, Canterberry Crossing
Would definitely recommend! Karen is accommodating and great with my cat. She sent picture messages on updates and when she would be at the house. Will be using her in the future 🙂 ~Krista, Cottonwood
Karen took excellent care of my two cats while I was on vacation. She brought a cat toy to the meet and greet that got their attention and took time to get to know my very skittish male cat. She kept me updated with emails and pictures and I came home to happy, well cared for babies. I will certainly use her service again. ~Annette, Vela Meridian
We are very happy with the services provided by Karen. We have a special needs cat (Goofball) that requires fluids and medications administered daily. She not only takes care of that she has bonded with him as well. Yes, I would recommend her…. ~Ken, Heirloom subdivision
Karen provided her services to our 10 year old Diablo over Memorial Day weekend.
She scheduled a day prior to the pet sitting to go over Diablo’s routine and his needs. She was thorough and noted all the details.
While we were away, she texted details of each visit with Diablo and even sent a video of her playing with him in his tunnel! He was very content when we got back home.
We appreciate Karen’s professionalism and her care and personal attention. We will definitely use her again. ~Mary, Bradbury Ranch
If you’re looking for someone to watch your cat/s while you’re away, I highly recommend Cats Only pet sitting. 303-947-9800. Karen knows how to deal with cats and their unique personalities. It has been a joy going out of town with the peace of mind that she is looking after things at home. She also helps with small errands, such as mail, trash cans, and sends daily picks of the 4 legged kids. ~Suzy, Canterberry Crossing
