Homebodies House Watch & Pet Care was established in 1996. Like many of you animals and pets have always been a part of our family. For years we provided this service freely to friends and neighbors in smaller communities where a comparable professional service was unheard of. From personal experience we know how difficult it can be to run home at lunch time to let the dogs out or to check on a sick pet.

Since the inception of Homebodies we have made many new human and furry friends. Our customers tell us they appreciate our care and love of animals, our attention to detail and our professional attitude. Thank you to all of our customers who continue to use and recommend our service, especially those who have provided testimonials in this website. Also, the referrals from West End Veterinarians continue…and we are happy to reciprocate by recommending any of the fine clinics listed on our contact page. Thank you for checking us out. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members.

Christine Bromley, Owner.

Testimonials

"We have had Christine Bromley’s company Homebodies look after our house for both short and extended periods since 2003. We have found Homebodies to be honest, reliable and capable. They take great care to visit the house regularly as planned and provide a record of each visit with relevant comments. They are available for extra visits and can cope with emergencies (when our house was severely hit during the hailstorm of July 11, 2004 Homebodies was there, dealt with the situation, and kept us informed). Homebodies is extremely satisfactory and we are confident our home is in good hands whenever we are away.  We strongly recommend Homebodies."
The Jones Family

"We have been using Homebodies House Watch & Pet Care since the summer of 2003. She looks after both our home and our cats Luke and Cleo. They have reported to us that they enjoy Christine's bag of toys, treats and very serious catnip. They are happy cats. When we walk out the door for our vacation, it's with a confidence in knowing all will be well with our home, property and pets while we are away. We are quite sure  that your experience will be the same." 
Dale and Holly Stengel   

"We have been using Christine and her Homebodies services since moving back to Edmonton in 2004. For us it is quite a relief to know that someone so caring is coming in to visit our cats, Jackie and Murphy. When we arrive home from a trip, we are greeted by happy well cared for cats. Furthermore, the house is always looked after, and during the summer my plants and vegetable garden continue to thrive under Christine’s care. Also, we are able to enjoy our vacations without worrying about our cats or home. The best part about arriving back home for our family, is reading the summary of the cats visits with Christine. We all take our turns reading the notes and enjoying the cute and funny stories Christine has left for us. Christine is truly a compassionate person and a true animal lover. I would highly recommend Christine and Homebodies services to anyone living in the west end. Your animals will definitely be well loved and given lots of cuddles."
The MacKenzie Family including Jackie and Murphy

"Christine and Homebodies have been looking after my four cats while I'm away on vacation for the past few years. I have come to trust her to take excellent care of my precious "babies!" My cats have become familiar with her and are quite calm and content when I get home. It wasn't always that way! Christine takes the time to bond with "her" pets and spends time with them at each visit. She also leaves a detailed description of how they were doing at each visit, letting me know how calm or playful they were each time she saw them. They have come to know her well, and this makes such a great difference. She is also aware of the location of my vet clinic and would take them there in case of an emergency. She always has my cell phone number to call me if anything untoward happens. She even bought them extra cat food when I accidentally ran out while I was away; above and beyond the call of duty! My pets are precious to me and I would never leave them with less than excellent care. I wouldn't want anyone other than Christine to babysit for me!"
