Dear Leigh & Carol

I’m seriously blown away by the service received by this most amazing couple.  Every single time I use you guys I have zero concerns and never have a single thing to worry about.  Everyone you have ever sent me has been amazing. Have loved them all. But the level these guys went over & above is borderline ridiculous!  Absolutely world class couple!! 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. Thank you as well, you play a key role in all of this.  Quite possibly the most consistently brilliant service of any kind I’ve ever used in my life. If you are ever in a position to expand and looking for more clients just let me know, I will do what I can to help you guys with the greatest of pleasure. This is just a different league! Steven Rosenthal September 2020.

Dear Carol. Very Satisfied customer

Have always used kennels or family friends to look after pets where they return a little stressed. Decided to pay for professional on advice and many recommendations on neighborhood Facebook page. Couldn’t have been more pleased. Responsible, communicative, super security-conscious, professional and with loads of love for the animals. Even trained our stubborn pooch to bring back after fetch (which we’ve struggled with). Will never use another service. And I’m looking forward to many future happy holidays away knowing that my home and pets are in good hands. Carol Wragg

5 stars. Top notch, can think of nothing to improve. Christa - Edgemead 2020

Dear Leigh and team

You have been awesome in your care of my animals and the feedback to me. To be able to go away knowing your "creature comforts" can stay at home and be taken care of so well adds so much value to my life. As you know, caring for a diabetic cat is a huge commitment and having found a pet sitter like you has now given me the option for the fist time in almost three years to go away knowing Zeenie will get the care and love she requires. How does one find words to thank you enough for that?You are brilliant, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I will recommend your team services to any animal lover! What an absolute pleasure to arrive home and find your animals relaxed and happy! Thanks again, Liezl Haman - Summerwood Estate - May 2020

Very Satisfied with your team. We were really very happy with Sonet and hope to built a long pet sitting relationship with her, as she was trustworthy & loves animals and even won the trust of our dog Ben..who never likes anybody! She send us updates during the day and next morning, which put us at ease. I have known Carol for a few years and she always goes over and above to assist us - as I usually give her very short notice! I trust her 100% with my keys and home. Carol Wragg Licensee and Sonet Pet Sitter. 5 STARS. Marlene Smith - Oct 2019

Dear Amy. 

Never any concerns, extremely happy and satisfied with services provided and that all my fur babies are always in exceptional care. Amy gets 5 STARS. Perfect already :-) Mullerine Meyer April 2019

Dear Pet Sitters Cape Town. We have been back for 2 weeks now and have been meaning to write a reference for Piet Le Roux who house sat for us for 5 weeks. Piet is most definitely the best house\pet sitter we’ve ever had.  He made an effort to meet with us a couple of times before we left to go on our 5 week vacation which made everything much simpler to go through.  He understood clearly what needed to be done on our property and took care of everything meticulously.  He has the common sense to sort out little problems as they arise.

The most important thing of all, is that it was quite clear that he was just perfect for our 3 dogs.  They adored him and it seemed that their lives & routines were not upset at all by our absence.  We had often had problems in the past and felt the dogs unease when we left and when we returned but this time, they were quite happy, fit & healthy.  It was a pleasure to feel comfortable knowing that he was taking care of our property and fur children and also enjoying it himself.  We will most definitely be using Piet again. Thanks so much. Mandy Millsap - Cape Town - June 2018

Dear Leigh,Thanx for an excellent job feeding our pets and looking after the house. We will definitely use you again in the future! and refer you to friends and family"! Thank you, Marinda Froneman - Durmonte, Durbanville - April 2010

 It was great to come home and see that the dogs were happy and had been well looked after. The feedback sms's were also really useful and helped us to enjoy our time away without worrying about our dogs. Great service! Thanks Andre.

 "Hi Leigh, I take the opportunity to thank you and your lovely daughter for taking care of our pets. We do appreciate your special care. Kind regards", Richard Sims, Vierlanden, Durbanville - April 2010

My one dog is a bit wary of strangers. Karen did wonders with him - I've now start noticing that he is accepting strangers much easier after she spend some time with them. He was also very calm on my return - I had problems with previous pet sitters in the past. I was very satisfied with Karen's service - the first feedback, the way she handled the dogs, etc. I'll definitely recommend her - April 2012 - Charlotte Schreve

 We found Peter to be very reliable, and our dogs, cats and plants were well looked after. We will definetely ask Peter to look after our home in the future - Marga Sheffler - Feb 2012

 Carol sent an sms every time she visited the house and dogs and briefly explained what she did - this was really appreciated; left Leentjie's jacket on because of cold whether is but one example of her dedication to service delivery and love for dogs. She is indeed an asset and will be recommended to our circle of friends. She even left us a magazine with an article on a Jack Russel - our one is extremely busy - Jan Brand - August 2013 - Edgemead

Dear Leigh, I wish to start off by thanking you for the peace of mind that you leave us with when we go away on weekends and holidays. We were relieved to have found your service last year, being new arrivals to Cape Town we did not know many people who could house sit for us, as we do not believe in leaving our homely pets in kennels or kitty hotels as they come back stressed out and full of fleas. 

It is extremely comforting to know that our two cats and young poochie can stay in the comfort of their own home whilst we are away, being fed their normal foods and getting the attention that they deserve, including short walks and playing fetch. We are so very grateful for the friendly service that you provide to us and know that we will be using your service for many years to come. - Kind regards, Charlene Chauvet - April 2010 - Goedemoed

 I can recommend Celeste Matthee! We used her once to look after our animals (dogs, chickens and fish) and we did not even think twice before we phoned her again for the coming December-holidays.She is one of those people people that has a love for animals and you can just feel she knows what she is doing and even if there is some kind of emergency, she will cope.  I hope this is in order! Belinda van Tonder - August 2012 

Dear Leigh, thank you for the most excellent service, it was fantastic going away and not having to worry about the house or the dogs. Thank you also for the lovely lunch bag, cute postcard and much needed milk.  Lovely surprise.  

May we order you next time for grass cutting and making a home coming meal too !! Just joking! Thanks Leigh, we really appreciate your time and your assistance and it is a pleasure paying you for a job well done. The dogs have never had it so good with walkies every day and all the treats. 

They asked so when are we going away again ! The 2 x daily sms's were a great comfort to us. Many thanks Kind regards - Debra and Ernie - July 2010 - Vredekloof Heights

 We trust Kim with the lives of all three of our dogs since on four occasions she alerted us to potential medical emergency with our Boerboel owing to her meticulous and daily attention to every detail of our three large breed dogs each with difficult, idiosyncratic needs. We simply love the way in which Kim loves our furry pack as though they were her own. Here passion and professionalism gives us peace of mind and her willingness to at times at short notice provide extra service over and above her normal daily visits, means the world to us & our neighbours - John & Michelle Garman in Lakeside - Aug 2012

Jo-Anne was a Gem! I am so grateful for finding her through your site as she is great with cats and she really loves animals :) and I was able to leave the country for 3 weeks with a peaceful mind knowing that my cats will be cared for by her - Lizette Bothma - Jan 2013 -  

Dear Leigh and Monique,  Thank you (x 100!) for the amazing home sitting service you have provided. I have already spoken to Leigh and told him how thrilled I am with your attention to Samoa, and your feedback to me. I can honestly say that I felt so very relaxed knowing that you were there. Samoa, for the first time, has not shown any signs of distress at being left and thankfully did not demonstrate any of her usual naughty behaviour whilst I was away. Given that she is more like a child than a cat, I am so very grateful that I found out about Homesitters, because you have treated both her and me with such understanding. I will most definitely ask for your help again for my next trip, and I will certainly promote your service to as many people as I can reach! Well done!  22 August 2010 - Century City - Claire, Samoa-Mae and Greg 

Hi Leigh, we would just like to thank you for the time you looked after our house and pets while we were away. It makes such a difference to one’s vacation when you know your pets are well looked after and cared for. We will definitely use your service in the future. Our pets were very relaxed, the poop was picked up and the pool looked better than ever. WOW and thanks. Kind Regards Jaques & Leana Barnard - Durbanville December 2010

Dear Sir, I was so satisfied with the service delivery to our home during by Bruwer de Wet in Garsfontein this December 2010 holiday, that I would like a quote for the period 22 April – 29 April 2011. Regards Lizette Williams, Pretoria

 I found her to be friendly and efficient.She even smsed me while i was on holiday to ask me if she could water my plants on the patio as they were drying out.i found her to go way above what i had asked of herGreat servive.Very profesional  - Eugene de Villiers

Dear Leigh and Team. Thank you again for the spectacular service. Don't tell my friends this but I actually am disappointed when they are available to look after Samoa, as I prefer it when Monique is there. Regards -  Claire Blanché  March 2011

 This was our first experience and we weren't too sure what to expect. Sue exceeded our 

expectations and both our cat and dog love her - Angela Grigorescu - Dec 2012

Good Day,

I would like to take this opportunity to share with all potential and current Pet Sitters users, a unbelievable (way beyond the call of duty) experience!. We have been using Pet Sitters for about 3 years now - more specifically, Mr Leigh De Wet. I decided to take my family to Sun City for a well deserved long weekend break and called Leigh (as I normally do) to look after our Rottweiler (Max). Max is not only a watch-dog to us, but truly part of our small family. During this specific weekend, all hell broke loose on our property. 

I received a call on the Monday morning (from a very calm Leigh de Wet), informing me of the extend of damages within the boundary walls of our property. In summary, during the course of the night, a municipal main burst, sending thousands of litres of water through my neighbour's property. The boundary wall between us and our neighbours, could not hold all the pressure and collapsed. Hundreds of thousands of litres of water came rushing through our property causing severe damage (inside and outside). Luckily, Max was OK as his house was a mere few meters from the collapsed wall. Leigh was extremely professional! As we were in Sun City, he calmed me down, explained what happened and told me exactly what he was going to do. He secured the premises and even took pictures that he sent me. He came back a bit later to bring Max some food (as his was washed away) and dried out his home and bedding. 

During all of this, Leigh was in constant contact with me informing us to the progress. This is truly the best service I have EVER experienced! Leigh - all we can say, is thank you, thank you, thank you ! You went WAY above what was expected of you. Your professionalism and good heartedness, will take you a very long way! We want to recommend Leigh De Wet and his team to everybody who have not used their service. A truly remarkable experience! Kind Regards, The Du Toit Family, Durbanville - Parents of Max the Rotweiller - Sept 2013

Carol was super. She took excellent care of our pets (3 dogs and 2 cats) as well as the garden (which was a big task). The sms and pics of our pets was so reassuring. It is nice to know that in future we will be able to go away with complete piece of mind and will definitely ask Carol to tend to our pets again - Carol Wragg - Edgemead - December 2013


 It is difficult to describe in words the excellent person, service delivery and attitude that I experienced. UIT DIE BOONSTE RAKKE (top notch)Please keep this up. Your concept is brilliant and if Estelle represents your typical Pet Sitter, you can only be successful - Estelle van Wilgen - Durbanville December 2014

 Carol is such a lovely lady, I am so pleased to have found this service with someone that immediately instilled trust. I will definitely use her again - Kim Terblanche - Dec 2013

 Hi – I am finally getting round to doing that reference for you to post on the website. Celeste looked after my two dogs and two cats at relatively short notice over end Dec 2013.Which was a lot less stressful for my animals than going to kennels/cattery. She came round the day before to collect the keys and be introduced to the animals and their habits etc. She sent an sms each day to give a report on my animals and even on the last day I had not Engaged her services as I was returning in the afternoon, but still went past the house to make sure they all had enough water and were ok. I would highly recommend her services and your house is also being checked up on at the same time.

Thanks Liz - Goedemoed - Dec 2013
