Bonnie, thanks for the lovely photo of Emma – one of the best we have of her!  She doesn’t often smile like that, but then we know she’s a big fan of yours!  You have given us a great gift – never having to worry about our little dogs when we are away, going above and beyond in caring for them.  Thank you so much!

Cathy & Chip H AND Kitty Callie lOu

Want to let you know we are moving back to Phoenix next week.  Would you consider moving with us??  Don’t know if I trust anyone with Callie but you!  Thank you so much for the time you spent with her – am certain she’ll miss her Auntie Bonnie.

Not only does Bonnie treat her clients' pets as though they were her own, she will always make them feel extra comfortable when they are missing their families. She additionally makes sure our home is buttoned up and safe. Clearly I highly recommend her!

beautiful gold and gray cat with green eyes

Thank you ever so much for all you’ve done for our family.  You were an angel sent by the Cat Doctor.  I just don’t know how I could have made my life work without your help.  The 'loves’ will all miss you and I’ll miss your friendship & caring nature.


2 talking gray, white and black dogs with mouths open

Thanks again as always.  It is so comforting to know that our pups are in good hands when we go away.  Your kindness and loyalty never goes unappreciated!  The girls said they needed more Bonnie time, so here ya go!

Hi Bonnie, want to thank you for making your notes about VanGogh’s weight and potty.  We took him to the vet and he has an overactive thyroid.  We are on medication and the vet is confident that she can control it.  We appreciate your concern and bringing that to our attention.

SO your pets NEVER LOSE YOU!

The odds of a lost pet NEVER being returned to you is a high 90%!! With 'lurking unforeseen' all around us, ensure your pets' safe return: MICROCHIP any pet at any age, a quick inexpensive injection between their shoulder blades. ID scanners used to identify lost pets are located at most shelters, rescue groups, and vet clinics.

EVACUATION PREPAREDNESS ~ you just never know

T​he safest place for your pets is WITH YOU... no matter what!

  1. Prepare a list of pet-friendly lodges and their policies. Also some preferred pet boarding facilities for back-up. NOTE: Red Cross Shelters only accept Service Pets.
  2. Should disaster strike when you are away from home, safeguarding your pets by having an Emergency Pet Decal visible at the front of your residence is VITAL, which indicates how many pets inside need saving.  PawsWatch provides these decals to new clients!
  3. Less-stress kitty tip: Scoop up the most savvy cat first!
  4. Time is of the essence! Prepare ahead grab-n-go bins with any necessary items for you and your pets.
