A word from Spiral, Mondo,Marilyn,Reznor and gang...
I HIGHLY recommend Josie's Pet Service.  She goes out of her way to take care of the animals.  She treats them likethey were her own.  I have cats, dogs and birds and all of them love her almost as much as me!  I tend to be very protective over my *kids*. But when I leave for out of town I know I can relax and not worry about any of my babies when they are in her care.  Josie also has a veterinary background so she is aware if a pet needs special attention.   I can not thank you enough Josie for all the extra things you have done for me and my animals.
