Melanie is so amazing and I’m so happy I found her via rover. I’m so happy my cat snickers is in such good hands when I can’t be there. She sends detailed reports and pics and videos and is especially wonderful with my 19 year old sweet cat with arthritis. I can’t say enough good things about Melanie ?

Melanie came to feed and visit our cat and did a wonderful job. She was incredibly thorough, communicative, and reliable. I'd highly recommend her for anyone who's looking for a sitter!

Melanie is wonderful! Accommodating, good natured, keeps you updated, and genuinely loves the pets she's working with. Used her more than once, plan to use again in the future.
