Aimee took great care of our shy kitty while we were out of town, giving him his space and plenty of treats. She even met with us before we left to review necessary details. We would 100% use her again!

Carrie was as always such a wonderful caretaker of our sweet fur babies and was meticulous about making sure everyone was well cared for and played with- thank you! We were able to leave town without feeling worried. We have a diabetic older kitty and she’s always very good about timing and relaying any information to us. She’s reliable, wonderful and very sweet! Thanks, Carrie!

Iryna took care of our cat for 2 weeks while we were abroad. She was communicative, responsible, kind, and went above and beyond in care duties. Our very social cat really enjoyed all of attention- brushing, play, and pets. We recommend Iryna to others who want a sitter who will give their cat the level of care and attention as they would their own.

Melissa has watched my cat a couple of times now and she is so thorough as a sitter!! She goes above and beyond to be helpful and I feel safe leaving my Elio in her hands no matter how short or long I may be away. She even threw out my pizza i left by accident 😂 I will always book Melissa if she is available.

Shereen has gone above and beyond for Kylo. He loves her like an aunt. We had a crisis today and she stepped in without blinking an eye, I can see how much love, attention, and care she gives to Kylo. I always feel very informed during our visits and know she always has Kylo’s best interests in mind. We’re a team working together to make my puppy the best he can be and I love that 💖

Lucy was the best cat sitter we’ve had on Rover! She was very good with communicating, sending pics, and making sure our cats were happy while we were gone. We did not worry about the cats one bit. We will be hiring her again.

Shannon did an AMAZING job helping us when we needed a last minute drop in visit. She took such good care of our pup, providing lots of play, cuddles, and not giving up when our front door was a pain to unlock and I was being terrible about checking my phone. Couldn't reccomend more!

Michelle was absolutely wonderful. My cat’s care needs are a little more complex than most, and Michelle was able to accommodate them all. It was obvious she read my (admittedly lengthy) care instructions and tried to make my cat feel as at ease as possible while I was gone. I could not say enough good things about her! :)
