Minerva and Baxter


See what others are saying about us!

Minerva was caring and organized. All instructions were followed and she even left videos of my cat each day. I will definitely use her services the next time I go on a trip.

Two Paws Up Pet Sitting service with Minerva is the best service in town. She treats each pet as their own, providing them all the love and attention they need and deserve when I am away. She truly takes the time to know each pets individual needs and tailor their service accordingly. Over the many years that Minerva has been helping take care of our pets she has become a great family friend. Someone I trust and can call on at any time. There was a time when we were getting our house tented and so our pets were being boarded, but they were not doing well and so Minerva went and picked them up and cared for them at her house. I will continue to call on Minerva for all my pet sitting needs because she is hands down the most loving and trusting pet sitter in town!

Minerva @ Two Paws Up Pet Sitting has been taking care of our cats for almost ten years.  She does a fantastic job and our cats really like her.  We completely trust Minerva to take care of our babies whether it is for one night or a dozen.
Everything is always in perfect order when we return home.  It is one less thing that I have to worry about when a situation arises when we need to be away from home.  We couldn’t ask for better service and I feel very fortunate to have found Minerva and appreciate all of the good care she gives us.

I don’t tend to provide online reviews but I have so many positive things to say about Two Paws Up! Pet Sitting.  We’ve used Two Paws Up! Pet Sitting Service (Owner Minerva) for weekly dog-walking and extended stay visits for many years.  Prior to Two Paws Up! Pet Sitting being recommended to us, we use to limit trips and potential vacations as I didn’t trust others with our pets.  Minerva really cares about the pets and provides them with so much love and individual attention-her passion and personality hasn’t changed at all over the years.  It has been super comforting to know our 4-leggers are safe and in professional, caring and compassionate hands while we are away.  For a time, we had a bubble fish that was included in the menagerie of pets; Minerva watched over him too while we were away.  Two Paws Up! Pet Sitting provides a personal write-up at the conclusion of each visit/walk that highlights any changes, mood of pet and or possible concerns.  One of our 4-leggers recently had a cancer scare this summer: a tumor was removed from her leg and she was in a funk-Minerva was the key in getting “Weezie’ s” mood and personality” back to where she was prior to the cancer treatments.  Our 4-leggers look forward to their weekly visit/walk from Minerva/Two Paws Up!

We struggled to find someone to care for our critters when we took time away from home.
Like most pet owners, we wanted someone who would care for our pets as we do.
Finding Two Paws Up Pet Sitting has given us the assurance we needed to know our pets are happy while we are gone.
The care and concern for our critters is refreshing.  Minerva's written diary of our pets actions/reactions is always enjoyed when we return home. Minerva and Two Paws Up Pet Sitting are trustworthy, honest, caring, concerned, fair and appreciated.

Thank you!

Thank you,

I'm not a very social cat, but Minerva takes good care of me when my father is away. I am always well taken care of when Two Paws Up Pet Sitting is on duty.

Reliable, trustworthy, communicates well, and caring

– Donna - Norwalk

Chelsea was always happy to see Minerva.  Lots of love and attention was provided.

I never worried about anything when Two Paws Up Pet Sitting was on duty.  Medicines were given with no problems and they were always ready to help.  Thanks Minerva for being there for us and Chelsea during her last years of her life. I trusted you with my precious girl and glad I could count on you.  Great services were always provided.

Gratefully, Kim – La Mirada

Minerva was recommended to me 13 years ago by a satisfied customer of hers.  She has been my pet sitter ever since.  She is loving, organized and very professional.  I totally trust her with my precious cat and my house when I am not there.  She writes down everything so that she doesn’t forget anything.  Minerva doesn’t call it pet sitting she calls it pet pampering.  She’s kind enough to take my mail in and water my plants if they need it.  One of the best things Minerva does is leave a daily report of the time she came and went and what she did with my cat.  They’re so nice to come home to.  I would and have highly recommended her to friends and family.   Most importantly my kitty Sasha loves her!

Minerva is always there when we need her. She has made our many last minute plans possible for us. I do not know what we would do if she wasn't there to watch over our dog and kitties. She does a great job, and I know our many pets are safe with her. Her prices are also very reasonable. I highly recommend her for all your pet care. 

- Natalie/Patrick - Whittier

I have been a Two Paws Up Pet Sitting customer for almost 20 years. And throughout that time I have never been disappointed. Minerva is very professional and detailed when meeting a new pet and getting their routines down. She is reliable and I love it when I'm out of town & I get a text or email w/a picture of my dogs. I also appreciate the daily notes recounting her visits. All in all I absolutely recommend Two Paws Up Pet Sitting; I have complete peace of mind when I'm away & I know that not only are my dogs being well cared for, but that they are also given loving attention when I'm not there.

- Wendy, Whittier

I can't tell you enough good things to say about Minerva and Two Paws Up Pet Sitting. They have been unbelievable, they are so reasonable I better keep quiet because they might raise prices to new customers LOL. Because of the service I feel safe to go anywhere in the world at anytime for as long as I want to. They're licensed and bonded, and I'm sure I've been with them probably for 7 or 8 years, what they do for your pet is unbelievable for the service and price they charge.

Again, I can't tell you enough, as I even walk my dog and I've even asked them at times just to water one little part of my lawn where they didn't put sprinklers in and she did that for me. I never have to worry if there is anything small that needs attention, she has my phone number and she will text me. There is no better service professional, economical, and I will use the service for the rest of my pets lives. My dog Lady loves everybody there, along with my two cats All are just spoiled with Two Paws Up Pet Sitting Service. They are probably the most economic Pet sitter in the United States especially for Southern California. The quality is the best, and you never have to worry while you're traveling. They will take care of your animals almost as good as you will.

Two Paws Up Pet Sitting is extremely professional and reliable. All concerns for my pets have been taken very seriously and instructions for their care have been followed 100 per cent. I highly recommend!!!

Debbie, La Habra Heights

My dogs, Candy and Cookie, absolutely adore Minerva! I feel so comfortable when I am away and she comes to my house and stays overnight. My Yorkies are small and need a lot of attention and Minerva gives them that plus more. When you leave her instructions on how to feed or care for your pet, she goes above and beyond! Thank you for your wonderful service!!'

- Grace, Downey

I have been using Two Paws Up pet sitting services for several years now, dogs. They always leave a detailed daily diary of my pet's eating habits and play habits, potty habits, etc for every day they cared for my pets. They follow instructions exactly, and go the extra mile to play and interact with my pets and give them lots of love and attention. They treat my pets the same way I would. I highly recommend their services! I have used other pet sitters, tried kennels, and pet hotels, but nothing compares to having tender loving care of my pets in their own home environment while I am away. Two Paws Up Pet Sitting cares about the animals and loves them as if they were their own....

For our month long vacation this year we chose to have our two cats taken care of by Two Paws Up pet sitting service, this was the one of best decisions we have made this year. Our cats were well taken care of and didn¿t go through the trauma of going to a pet care facility. The cats were well fed and played with each day that we where gone, not only that, the mail and newspapers were brought in and the trash containers were put out and brought in. No one in the neighborhood new we weren¿t home for a month. We highly recommend Two Paws Up and will continue to use this service.

Minerva is the very best at what she does. She is very dependable, trustworthy and does an excellent job of caring for our cats when we are away from home. We have been using her service for many years and have never once been disappointed with anything. She is a wonderful person and truly cares for the animals. Our cats adore her and I think they look forward to seeing her. She keeps our house key so it is so easy when we need her, all we have to do is call and set up the dates we will be away. She leaves daily logs about each visit and I enjoy reading what the "kids" have been doing while we were away. I highly recommend Minerva for all of your pet sitting needs. She even brings in the mail and the newspapers and will water the plants upon request. We feel totally secure with her watching our house.

Minerva has the most loving and compassionate heart for animals! She has taken care of my mother's cats as well as my own families dogs for over 15 years. We know that our pets are in great hands when she watches them. Not only does she feed and water the pets, she also brings in your mail and plays with the pets in the backyard. A real treat for our dogs when we are out of town. She leaves a daily report on how the pets did with her as well. We are so thankful for the devotion and concern she has for not only us, but especially for our pets. A+ service!


My wife June and I began using Minerva from Two Paws Up Pet Sitting Service a few years ago and found that the service changed all of our concerns about our pets well-being and even our home security while we travel. It was so nice to know that our pets were being well cared for and that there was a person in our house every day checking to see that every thing was okay. It is great for our pets because they didn’t have to leave the place where they felt most secure. We found that Two Paws Up Pet Sitting is extremely reliable and takes good care of our pets; and its nice getting an E-Mail update from Minerva during our trips. We highly recommend this service.

We have been using Two Paws Up Pet Sitting for our four lovely cats since last year. We cannot say enough about the wonderful care Minerva gives to our fur babies. In all areas of care including physical and emotional needs. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of superior pet sitting.

Linda and Michael, La Mirada

Minerva and her team at Two Paws Up Pet Sitting are absolutely amazing! Been using them for all our pet-sitting needs for close to 20 years. Totally reliable and always available when we need them. Sincerely devoted to the well-being of our cats, with the added bonus of taking care of plant watering and other little tasks that need attention when we are away from home. Great value for friendly and top-notch professional service!
