“We were so fortunate to have found Leslie to come to check on our sweet 18-year-old brown tabby, Zoe when we travel. I never worried about her when we were gone because I knew Leslie would be by to give her lots of attention, brushing, fresh water, fresh food, treats, and a clean box. Zoe didn't come out for many people but she loved it when Leslie came over. Leslie is very dependable and I loved when she would send us updates on Zoe while we were gone, and we would even get a picture of our sweet girl once in a while! Whenever we got home Zoe's fur was so soft like she had been at a cat spa or something, it was evident Leslie had spent time loving on our girl. Zoe had previously been known to "not be that into us" after we left her home when we traveled, but once Leslie started coming to see her - Zoe didn't mind us being gone at all! I also really appreciate how clean the "cat areas" were when we got home - Leslie left everything pristine and tidy!

Our sweet Zoe passed away a few weeks ago- but I have already told Leslie we will be calling her immediately when we decide to add another kitty to our family. 

We highly recommend her and her services.

“Leslie's petsitting service has been a trusted go-to since moving to Wilmington. Her love for animals is top notch and she even stays overnight with our cats to make sure they get the attention needed. It's nice to have such a trusted sitter while we are away.


Please contact me at (336) 414-1483 if you have any questions”


“We first met Leslie Johnson over a decade ago when we were transferring to Southwest Ohio and needed an amazing pet sitter. We interviewed several and Leslie stood above all. Our pets immediately took to her (even our shy one), which is always critical. She was uplifting, confident, experienced, flexible, and immediately earned our trust... in true Leslie fashion, she cared so much for the clients that she ensured, even as she made her career change, that her clients and their treasured pets, would be taken care of with someone just like her. Your pets and family will be treasured by Leslie. And you will be so fortunate to have her as your cat caregiver. 


If you have any questions please feel free to call us at (937) 239-0555.”

“One of the hardest preparations for vacation I make sure our fur babies are well taken care of. The care our three cats got from Leslie included lots of playing, managing emergencies with care and compassion and keeping me updated with texts and photos. Our loss in Ohio is your gain in North Carolina...”

"I couldn't have wished for a better sitter, and the fact that you took me on at the last minute blows me away! I will recommend you to everyone! You not only fed her and payed attention to her but sent me pictures while I was away! It gave me comfort to know you were on the job. I wish you success in your endeavors and will definitely call for your services again. Thanks and praises!!"

About Me

Professional Cat Sitter

Growing up, my sisters and brother and I had many pets. 
Each of us still has pets. I actually learned the business of pet sitting from my sister in 2004, who also taught me how to give insulin shots to cats. 
I bought part of a pet sitting business in 2005, and pet sat full-time until September 8th, when my ex-husband and I moved away.
My cousin left her job with the post office and took over that business, Copy Cat and Dog Care, and made it her own successful entity, which she still operates in Lebanon, Ohio. 
In 2009, I worked full-time at Kohl's and started Cat Care by Leslie. 
I had wonderful, loyal clients in Middletown, Ohio, and loved working both with people and working without people. 
In September 2016, I moved to Wilmington North Carolina, with my now wife Michelle, to be closer to my daughter and her family (and the beach).
I look forward to meeting you and your cat!
-Leslie Johnson
