  1. For many years travelling has been like a nightmare for us because we didn’t have an ideal solution for our 2 cats to be looked after. This year we were introduced to Doug and Johanne, and for the first time we can enjoy travelling without worries. We can’t express enough what wonderful people came to our home, taking the best of care for cats and home. In addition we did get continuous reports, updates and pictures of happy cats. What a delightful, trust worthy and competent couple you are, Doug and Johanne. We sincerely hope that you will be able to fill in during our absence in the future and St. Vincent be on the list of your destinations.
