During a summer vacation, I tried Arkanpaws for the first time. I was so very pleased with the service! With four cats, this was the most cost-effective alternative for their care. Not to mention, the most preferrable since they could stay in their own home and not be caged for a week and a half. They were of course glad to see me back, as "glad" as cats show anyway, but the looks they gave me when I got home were almost "Oh, you were away?". The obvious services of food/water/love/scooping were done very well. The "extra" services of gathering the mail, watering the plants, and checking for broken items that would pose a safety issue made the experience all that more wonderful. Thanks so much to Arkanpaws!
