Melanie was an absolutely wonderful sitter! She was more than accommodating about a last minute booking/meet-up, and was immediately warm and friendly with my cat. She was prompt with thorough, entertaining updates, which included pictures, and any news about playtime, grooming, and feeding. My cat seemed to get along with her very well, and I absolutely intend to book her again. Highly recommend!
