Welcome to A Tail of Two Cities Pet Care

We provide premium pet care in the two cities of Bloomington/Normal, Illinois


A Tail of Two Cities is dedicated to helping you provide the best care possible for your pet.

Why use a pet sitter?


  • Your pet remains in his/her own home. This reduces the level of stress since the environment is familiar.
  • There is no exposure to illnesses from other animals.
  • Your pet continues with his/her regular diet as well as routine of exercise and any necessary medical treatments.
  • Your pet will receive love and one-on-one attention while you are away.
  • You don’t need to impose on a neighbor or friend to come to your home nor will you need to make an extra trip to a kennel or family member’s home to drop off your companion.
  • While on vacation, your home is made more secure since the care provider will make the home look as though someone is there by moving curtains, turning on/off lights, bringing in the mail/newspaper & bringing trashcans to/from the curb.
  • You have peace of mind knowing your cherished family member is in capable and caring hands while you are away.
  • Whether you are leaving town, work long hours, or just need help exercising or caring for your pets, you can be sure that they will get exactly what they need to be happy and healthy when you return home.
