Auntie Cathy watched our two dogs for the first time and we can’t wait to go back to her. (I’m pretty sure our dogs won’t want to leave her). We have two young and pretty needy/anxious dogs and Cathy was so kind and patient with them. We were so happy to have found a place that does not keep them in a kennel. You can tell Cathy really loves animals and what she does. We also really appreciated the photos/videos and updates from her once a day. We really can’t say enough great things about Cathy for keeping our dogs happy and safe. It made our vacation so much more enjoyable not having to stress about our dogs.

“Aunt Cathy is by far our first choice for a dog sitter. Ivy is a high strong vizsla demanding attention and used to constant with little to no time alone. We have done day trips as well as week long trips. Cathy videos, texts and sends photos to keep us up to date and informed just enough to ease our mind in our absence. Cathy is loving, caring and dedicated to her profession. We have great appreciation for the training tips she provides.”

“I could write a book on how much I love Auntie Cathy!! I just moved to the area and I interviewed a few places before finding her. I feel beyond blessed! Jackson adores her. Cage free and she even let him sleep on her bed because he has such bad anxiety. Daily texts, pictures and video updates captures just how adoring and loving she is with all the animals. Without a doubt Auntie Cathy is the most trustworthy and compassionate person to care for any fur-baby. The attention and love she gives them is like nothing I’ve ever seen. Priceless!! ????????????”

Auntie Cathy is amazing, trustworthy, genuinely cares and loves your pet, and takes care of your fur baby so well that my dog comes home happier than ever after staying with her! I am always super nervous finding a new boarding place for my dog as she is very shy, nervous, and has slight separation anxiety but Auntie Cathy and my dog bonded immediately during the meet and greet and had no issues staying with her for multiple nights away from me! Auntie Cathy will text you updates throughout the day about how your dog is doing, she will send videos and photos, and just answer any questions and assure you that your dog is doing fine. She recently moved from her old location to her new place in Casas Adobes area (85641 zip code) and it is a nice area with lots of room for the dogs to play and run around. She also is very diligent about any specialized care needs or treatments for your dog. I unfortunately moved to Mesa and was very disappointed that I needed to search for a new boarding place.. but after doing some searching around my new area, I finally decided I am going to make the 2 hours drive down to Tucson just so Auntie Cathy can look after my fur baby when I am gone on vacations as I only trust her with my dog now! I highly recommend her to all Tucsonians that are searching for pet day care or boarding services!!!

We found Auntie Cathey’s pet boarding on Google, after reading the reviews we scheduled an interview, and a visit with our two little dogs. We were very impressed and scheduled for 4 nights. Auntie Cathy is the most loving, kind, knowledgeable about dogs, and trust worthy dog sitter I have met. She took such good care of our little ones, kept us updated with daily texts about their stay and daily activities and any details. We felt so at ease and it made our trip so much more relaxing knowing she took care of our babies. We highly recommend her services and surely will ask her again to take care of our babies for our next trip.

Auntie Cathy is simply the BEST dog caregiver there is! She was recommended to us on very short notice and was so accommodating. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience. She was so kind and patient with our shy dog and extremely thorough. (We could tell he loved her too!) Her policies and procedures put us at ease, and the daily updates with photos made us even happier. We will only use Auntie Cathy for pet sitting when in Tucson!

Cathy is awesome. She took care of our 2 yorkies for about 2 weeks. Cathy updated us with pictures and videos of our dogs via text messages. Cathy lets the dogs roam around her house and play with other dogs; typically at the other local pet hotels they charge extra for “play time”. Also, this was the first time that our 2 yorkies didn’t come back home and have diarrhea (other local pet hotels we have used, our 2 yorkies ALWAYS came home and had diarrhea despite giving them our personal dog food and treats). I recommend Cathy to take care of anyone’s pets!

Auntie Cathy is FABULOUS! I don’t think my pooch really cared if he came home or not because he had so much fun and was very happy with Cathy! I was nervous leaving my guy for four nights but he was very well cared for and Cathy makes sure all the details are covered before you walk out the door. Her home is immaculate and the environment is super loving and supervised at all times. I HIGHLY recommend Auntie Cathy’s Pet and Home Care Services. I will definitely use her again when I need to.

Simply superb.

I am so pleased with the level of professionalism and care Cathy provided during our recent 3-week out-of-country trip. We are new to Tucson and were not able to gather “word-of-mouth” recommendations for a pet and house-sitter so I went online and found Auntie Cathy. She met with me twice in advance of our trip and was incredibly thorough in her information gathering — she knows the right questions to ask. She also comes licensed and insured, providing peace-of-mind. The care she took of our pet and house exceeded my expectations.

I cannot recommend Cathy highly enough. I have already booked her for August, September, and October trips.

I’m so glad I found Auntie Cathy’s for Sedona. Cathy is fabulous, she is very detail oriented. At the very first meet and greet, I knew that my Sedona will be in great hands. She walked us through the entire process, asking important questions about my baby’s care. She made sure that Sedona spent some time at her house and was comfortable before starting day care. After just the first day Sedona loved it so much that she was jumping up and down in anticipation of going back to the ‘fun school’ and her Aunty Cathy. She makes is absolutely fun for all the dogs and sends me updates, photos and funny videos of “Sedona and her friends”. Not to mention, her place is so clean and homely. She is very flexible with timings as well(especially since my work schedule is so unpredictable). I will definitely send Sedona to her day care again and highly recommend Aunty Cathy for your pet needs !!!

So thankful we found Autie Cathy’s for our Morkie, Henry. She has been amazing since Day One. She took the time to really get to know all the little details about Henry so he would be comfortable staying with her. It’s given me such peace of mind when we’re out of town knowing Henry is so well taken care of. He’s happy to see us when we get home, but he’s also so excited when we take him to spend time with Cathy. Definitely Five stars plus!!

Cathy Lynch and Fern Stanley have been pet sitting for me for over 3 years and I know without a doubt my cat gets the very best care there is! They are professional, reliable, always available and incredibly kind. They love pets, they love what they do and as such, they excel at it! They don’t just sit with her. They engage her and play with her. I sometimes go away for weeks at a time and upon return, I find Harriet, my cat, happy and healthy! What a relief it is to know my cat is not neglected but rather well cared for and loved even when I am not around.
Plus, I get daily, lovely pictures of Harriet:)
Cathy and Fern do a fantastic job pet sitting! I couldn’t be happier with their service!!!

Cathy pet/house sat for us recently. She did a phenomenal job of caring for our two cats, checking on the house, and plant watering. She was very trustworthy and her attention to detail was music to my ears. She made detailed notes, left us with a nice detailed report card, and even texted pics of the cats while away. I am impressed with her professionalism, organization, and loving and caring attitude toward our pets. Her prices were reasonable and we would definitely use her again. Cathy is very much a 5 star business.

Auntie’s Cathy’s Cares and she truly does. I’ve owned dogs all my life and I have learned so much more about them because of her skills, talents, and welcomed advice regarding anything and everything dog related. I have complete confidence in her ability to manage any dog’s needs and preferences. My Staffordshire Pit Bull Terrier was my primary companion and I felt totally at ease with him being under her supervision and care when for whatever reason I could not be there. Best of all, she helped me wrestle with the heartbreaking decisions during his final days. Her support was remarkable and commendable.

Auntie Cathy pet sits for me several times a month when I am away on business. Cathy administers medications, brushes my animals, feeds them, loves them, and is CPR certified. I always return home to healthy and happy pets! Cathy also does some light cleaning, and send texts/videos of my pets while I am travelling. She is a godsend.

Aunt Cathy took care of our two baby budgies last month and they had such a wonderful time. Maizie and Cielo had celery treats and were able to visit with the other furry friends. We are so happy to have found Aunt Cathy.

Cathy is amazing! She took extra special care of my newly-adopted Maltipoo while I visited family in LA for 6 day’s. Lily was having problems barking at other dogs and new people, but Cathy’s patience and experience helped her to adapt and enjoy herself while I was gone. She helped Lily through a brief hunger strike and had her bathed and beautiful when I came to pick her up. I will definitely be using Cathy again and Lily will need to visit her new friends for the day soon.

Auntie Cathy is dedicated and loves cats and dogs. She is CPR certified, and takes care of my cats M-Th every week while I travel. Auntie Cathy is certified to give my cats medication, and follows my directions about their care to the letter. She also does some light cleaning, and my pets are always happy and healthy when I arrive home. I would recommend this service highly, and have tried many other pet sitters in the Tucson area, however she is the most dedicated and professional. Auntie Cathy takes the responsibility of caring for my pets very seriously. Report cards are waiting for me when I return home, and I receive pictures and videos daily when I am away.

We are so happy to have found Auntie Cathy. We rescued an english bulldog that is about a year old and were nervous about boarding her because we did not know how she would do. Cathy was so amazing with our **** and assured us that she would be just fine during our week away and she was right! We loved seeing the videos and pictures of **** playing with all the other dogs and Cathy even worked on some basic commands with our **** and she improved so much during this week. We have found ****’s second home and are so thankful to have discovered Cathy’s business. She is professional, courteous and full of doggie wisdom. So thankful for the loving and thoughtful care she provided to our little girl


Auntie Cathy is FABULOUS!! She’s fabulous to the dogs and their owners. Cathy is detailed and meticulous to understand your dog’s needs. She cares for your dog like they’re hers. She lets my dog sleep in bed with her even! She’s excellent at making sure dogs are well suited to be with each other and she clearly runs the house! Her place is immaculate- never any smell of dog and never any poop in her yard. She keeps it clean which I appreciate. And there are so many other little things Cathy does that make her extra special – training, bathing, brushing teeth, favorite toys, regular updates, and pictures, etc.

Auntie Cathy was amazing at taking care of our pup! She sent us regular updates and even dressed up our puppy for a fun Christmas photo shoot! She’s the best sitter we’ve ever had and would highly recommend!
