Izabelle showed a lot of interest and care for our cat at our initial meeting. She was very dependable and followed our care instructions. She sent several photos of our cat after each visit, though I did have to prompt her to send me messages as to how our big boy was doing overall. She immediately complied, though the messages were brief. When we arrived home it was nice to find our home just as we had left it, as well as a a happy cat who obviously had not missed any meals or treats. I would definitely use Izabelle again

Miranda did a fantastic job! I was gone for a little over a week and with one of my cats being a bit under the weather and taking medicine twice daily I was a bit nervous about leaving them. However, Miranda did a great job getting my little one his medicine, playing with them, and keeping me updated with pictures and little summaries of her visits! I even came back to an apartment that I swear is cleaner than when I left it! Miranda is amazing and I highly recommend her services!

Debora is a kind and exceptional sitter -- her knowledge of animals and her experience caring for them (and administering medication) are inspiring. Communication was clear and easy. Debora connected with my old grey cat and kept me informed during my travels. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Debora about future sitting needs.

Taylor was a reliable and attentive caretaker for our two cats! From the meet-and-greet to the last day of our twice-a-day check-ins over the Christmas holiday, Taylor always communicated promptly and clearly. She sent us great pictures of the cats and gave one of our cats an inhaler twice a day and oral steroids once a day for his asthma. We were super happy with her care and flexibility over the holiday season and will definitely be booking her again.

I have 2 cats (potato & Harper) and a dog (Macy) and Jordan is a second mom to all 3 of my fur babies! I trust her completely. Not only in the way she physically loves on them with pets, hugs, and kisses but the way she speaks love into them and is always happy to see them. And they’re excited to see her! Jordan always asking how my “sweet baby angels” are doing. She’s invested in all of their lives! Macy loves attention but is nervous. Jordan is always gently doting on her, talking to her, petting her. And Harper doesn’t always want attention and Jordan is always respectful of her space. When it comes to Jordan’s own furbabies, they are LOVED. She’s always very diligent about their health, she makes sure they stay happy (they have a catio so they can go outside and Jordan is always swapping out their toys to keep them entertained), and the way Jordan is greeted when she walks in the door, you can tell their hearts are full of love. They’re her top priority! The way Jordan cares for animals is unmatched. She is so kind to them, trustworthy, only wants the best, and believes every single animal has value.

Alex was amazing with my elderly cat who needs daily meds. He typically doesn't like many people, but he seemed to fall in love with her. Her visit synopses were very detailed and she always included at least two pictures. Her communication has been great all around. This was my first time using Rover, and I am very glad things worked out with Alex. I definitely will be booking with her again.
