Bonded, insured pet sitting in Houston's Inner Loop





We have been using Terry and Denis (and previously Lesley) with Inner Loop Pet Sitting for midday walks for over 2 years. They are extremely warm and personable to my Yorkie. They are very punctual with timing as well as flexible with service. I know I can rely on them for all my dog's needs! Rest assured, your dog will be in good hands with their team.

Ultra dependable


We have worked with Terry Merryman and Inner Loop Pet Sitting for almost 10 years now. Terry is ultra dependable and we look forward to her daily updates when we are traveling, including pictures. Our cats are usually shy, but they know Terry and love to play with her. They get to stay at home and we can relax knowing they are in good hands with Terry. We and our cats highly recommend Inner Loop Pet Sitting.

Noticed our dog was sick


We have been using Terry and her Inner Loop Pet Sitting team since moving to Houston almost 6 years ago...We have had several dog walkers through Inner Loop and they have all been trustworthy, reliable and good with our dog. Terry has always been very flexible with our hectic and erratic work schedules and has been able to accommodate last-minute changes and walks during the holidays. When our dog was sick, Terry noticed before we did and even offered to help get her to the vet. During a long and busy day it is reassuring to know that we have someone so wonderful to take care of our dog. Terry, thank you so much for taking care of Rosie! We are thankful.

# 1 fan


I've been the #1 fan of Inner Loop Pet Sitting and its owner, Terry Merryman, as well as locally renowned installation artist and cat-sitter extraordinaire, Jo Ann Fleischhaur, for years.  Since 2011 when I moved to Houston from NYC, Terry & - occasionally - Jo Ann have loved and cared for my beloved cats. Initially, Savannah & Paisley (who both subsequently left the planet in Feb 2016) and my current love, BadToTheBoneBillyRayBailey (aka BBBRB, pronounced BubbaBeeArby).  BBBRB (adopted Jan 2018 from Friends For Life, Houston's only totally no-kill animal shelter) is now a 2-year-old extroverted socialite who enjoys, inter alia, herding my neighbor's two miniature Australian Shepherds.

I travel frequently, sometimes for 5-6 weeks at a time, several times a year.  Terry or Jo Ann text me daily to report on playtime/feeding/etc. and usually include a really cute photo.  Whenever I return, food/water bowls/litter boxes are always clean & neat.  Several of my friends & neighbors have met Terry and/or Jo Ann, and they also think Inner Loop Pet Sitting is as swell as I do....I wouldn't use any other cat sitting service -- Inner Loop Pet Sitting is the best!

Wouldn't trust anyone else


I've been a client of Inner Loop Pet Sitting for over 5 years and I cannot say enough great things about Terry, her team, and the exceptional services they provide! They genuinely care about my two cats, Tanner and Ginger, and I wouldn't trust my fur kids with anyone else. Though traveling can be stressful, scheduling a service with ILPS is a breeze and they always accommodate my last minute requests. Not to mention, they have great rates! My absolute favorite part about being an ILPS customer is getting the pictures/videos of my pets while I'm away. Your sitter will provide little visit recaps. It's absolutely adorable! My husband and I genuinely look forward getting our messages from out sitter, Isabell, and the cats adore her! Inner Loop Pet Sitting is the best thing that's happened to pet parents and I would recommend them 100x over!
