“Saving Grace is consistently the BEST. Everyone treats my cat w great care they play w him and brush him. I love getting a pic when they stop by. I think Nancy’s love of my cat maybe be only second to my own! Thank you to everyone at saving grace and a special shout out to nancy for the great care you give!” – Gretchen P.
“Nancy has done great work with Paxi. Our cat can be suspicious and frightened, but even on her first visit Nancy seemed to merit closer examination. By the third visit, they were fast friends. Paxi is a sociable and sensitive kitty, and I am so glad that she is getting visits from someone who genuinely appreciates her and brings out her playful side.” – David S.
