“I found Monica to be my dream come true pet sitter. I have an older cat, 13 years old, who needs insulin shots twice daily. Monica did this in a professional manner. She is also trustworthy as she came over every day and took great care of my baby. I think Monica is the best and I really lucked out when I found her. I would highly recommend her. It was obvious to me that she loves animals. She treated my cat like she was her own.”

“Monica is very knowledgeable about dogs and cats, and has a lot of experience with them. I was comfortable with her taking care of our 2 geriatric cats right away. I’ve already hired her for future dates!”
- Linda M., New Brighton

"Monica is very knowledgeable about all animals and behaviors. She is very gentle and kind. I felt at ease knowing she was taking care of my “kids”.”
- Sherri L., White Bear Lake
“Thank you so much for taking care of my kitties while we were out of town. With Sebastian’s age, I haven’t felt “good” about leaving them alone for several years! This trip was entirely different, as I knew you were taking good care of them. I didn’t worry. I wasn’t pre-occupied, I just enjoyed my time away. Thank you for giving me a worry free get away and taking such good care of the boys! We will definitely be in touch for our next trip, and look forward to working with you again in the future! Thank you!”

“I was apprehensive about using an in home pet sitting service, but needed to find someone to look after my cat, Tiger, when I went on a two week vacation. My niece found Monica’s service online so I set up a meeting. I felt very comfortable from the start. Tiger is a very social cat and having Monica come in every day was a comfort. Also, there were things that she was able to do besides keep him company and clean out his box, she brought in my mail and watered my tomato plant. When there was a power outage due to stormy weather, she reset my clock! I highly recommend Monica.”

“. . . they totally dig you! And that’s what we want when we hire a person to care for the cats.”

"Monica's fantastic! I'm so happy we discovered her. I feel very secure leaving our 2 geriatric cats in her care when we go away. We get updates at least once per day, and when we get home the cats are not needy or upset with us. We can tell they are in great hands when Monica is with them!"
- Allyson K., Minneapolis
"Monica has watched my pet cat several times now, and she always provides impeccable care for the animal; you can tell she is focused on their well-being, and brings a wealth of knowledge for their care. One of the reasons I originally chose to hire Monica is because of her comfort and experience in dealing with animals needing medication/special care; our cat was having a medical scare, and leaving the cat with Monica eased my mind while traveling. Monica is very fastidious about making sure your pet's (specific) needs are cared for, but even better, you can tell she is a true animal lover. Between her reasonable prices to her professionalism (she is insured and is great about communication) to her excellent standards of care, I don't know why you'd hire anyone else. I highly recommend Monica to be your pet sitter!"
- Emily R., Minneapolis
Monica of Purrfect Pet Sitting is a delight and has been a great caregiver for our two cats (both on the raw food diet). She is attentive to our questions and needs which is such a relief and comfort to us. We receive regular updates on how the kitties are doing so we don't have to worry when we're not home. Monica goes above and beyond, checking in with us to ensure that we arrived home safely and no further visits are needed. It is clear that she has the welfare of our whole household in mind. We are grateful to have found such a thoughtful caregiver for our girls.
- Leslie F., Minneapolis
Monica is fantastic! She is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. We had peace of mind when she watched our two cats while we were gone for the weekend. She was willing to accommodate their eating schedule and they loved spending time with her. We already have her scheduled to take care of our kitties again! We are so thankful we found Monica!
- Amy W., St. Louis Park
I often find myself traveling on the road, and on occasion I've been able to bring my sweet little fur babies with me and that's been quite the ideal situation. The cats love traveling. However, sometimes this can't work out, be it job restrictions or hotel accommodations not allowing pets. I was torn between my career and my sweet cats and was ready to say goodbye to life on the road... until I found Monica!
Monica runs a fully insured pet sitting service (for cats and pocket pets) adorably titled Purrfect Pet Sitting. Her professionalism is only beat by the kind, thoughtful way she takes care of the pets she's looking after.
I can't tell you the relief I had being on the road and knowing my cats were in such good hands. Monica is very flexible and was able to come in every evening to check in on and feed the cats. She even provided daily updates and photos, which was a blast! Needless to say, my cats looked happy, healthy and excited to meet such a great new friend. Monica is now officially my go to when I need a sitter. I'd recommend her above all else. If you want peace of mind while away from your kitties or pocket pets, Monica's Purrfect Pet Sitting is the way to go. Give her a shot, I promise you won't be disappointed.

From a client who just returned home from a trip: "Showed Tracy your text, she said 'Great. She is the best pet sitter ever' Thanks again!"

If there is such a thing as reincarnation, I want to come back as one of Monica's animals!
- Mary W., Apple Valley
I moved to Minneapolis three years ago. Being new to the area and not having family nearby, I worried about finding someone reliable to care for my cats. I could not be happier that I found Monica. She cares them as if they were her own, and I trust her completely. Even my shy cat runs straight to her, so I know they love her too! It means so much to me to know they are in good hands when I travel. Thank you, Monica!
- Amanda S., Minneapolis
We have been using Purrfect Pet Sitting for several years now, and about 15+ separate bookings per year. Monica is a very reliable. We feel at ease knowing she is taking care of our cats. One of our cats is on medication twice a day and we do not worry about him getting his medication. She sends a quick text and you know everything is okay. Monica is also very flexible and has let us reschedule a trip when weather or illness prevents us from leaving when we planned. I would highly recommend her to others who are needing a cat sitter. Our cats just love her and they are at ease with her. Not many others can do that with one of our cats.
- Jenny & Larry L., Fridley
Dear Monica, if I could talk, I would tell you how much I appreciated you taking care of me. Thank you for being there every day for me, and for being my friend! With lots of purrs and head butts,
- Norman, the cat, Golden Valley
Monica, we appreciate all of your efforts in taking care of MeToo. Looking forward to connecting with you again in December. Thanks again! We were able to enjoy our trip knowing she was in good hands!
- Steve and Mary H., Blaine
We just hired Monica Knack while we were out of the country for two weeks. She was fantastic! Thorough, detail oriented and so good to our cats. She sent text updates and pics after each visit. We will be using her services again without question! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Our previous pet care was never satisfactory. We had done boarding at a pet store, in-home care by neighbor kids, and bringing our cat to a relative's home where there were two other cats (who had lived in our home for a time so the cats "knew" each other). The boarding and being at a relative's home were traumatic for our cat as well as the other two cats, in that case. The in-home care by neighbor kids was traumatic for us, as they were not reliable as to either timing of visits or reporting.
Having a professional cat sitter who comes to your home is such an excellent solution! You have reliability, extensive knowledge and a feeling of security that your cat/family member is being cared for in your absence. In addition, Monica will bring in your mail and newspapers, water plants, and rotate lights so your house doesn't look like no one is there. You actually get more than pet sitting, as Monica would let you know if anything was amiss around your house. That's another thing: she communicates after each visit so you are always up to date.
We consider Monica to be absolutely reliable and highly recommend her services!
