About The Barking Cat Pet Sitting, LLC

The Barking Cat Pet Sitting is a registered company in Florida and has been operating in Feather Sound and neighboring communities since 2009. Pet owners want a trusted pet sitter who truly loves pets, follows instructions, sends you regular updates, respects your house rules and no less important, respects your privacy. As pet owners we expect this for ourselves and will do the same for you. We are insured and bonded and our independent contractors are few and carefully selected.


I am Malu Collazo, the founder and owner of Barking Cat Pet Sitting, LLC. I came to this business after living in Latin America where I volunteered with pet rescue organizations conducting sterilization campaigns in the poorest of neighborhoods. During that time I fostered homeless dogs and cats and nurtured them to health until they found a loving home. The experience left me with a deep respect for animals and an understanding of their need for human love and companionship. Our rescue dogs, Chico and ChaCha are living testimonials that every dog deserves a loving home.

We look forward to working with you!

What people say about us
I have been using The Barking Cat Pet Sitting for over 5 years and can not say enough good. Both my cats and dogs love Malu- it's like she is one of their moms! Malu is reliable, trustworthy, affordable, and allows you to not worry about your pets. With Malu's services, you simply can relax because your pets are in great hands. ~Suzann Clark
Malu is the best! She's reliable, professional, and above all...loving and caring to my dogs, who do not do well when Mommy is away. They love her, and feel safe in her care. It's just like her motto says..."Relax, your pet is in good hands"~Diane Homa
Malu is Awesome! Brodie, Lucas, and Jock adore her and wish I would walk them as much as she does. I never worry about our pups when we're out of town.....they are in the perfect hands! ~Kathleen Malone Hartman
We have used Britany for pet sitting services twice now, and we couldn't be happier! We have used the overnight services. Our two dogs love her, and she treats them like her own. She always communicates to us while we away just to let us know how our babies our doing. We also get daily pictures! She gives them meds, walks with them, sleeps with them, and does everything with them that we would do. I recommend this company to anyone that wants their dog to feel at home while they are away. We plan to use her exclusively for short and long vacations going forward! You won't be disappointed! ~Veronica Theng
