I'm happy to write a positive review for Kelsey as a pet sitter. Kelsey was absolutely wonderful in taking care of my furry friends while I was away. From the moment I met her, I could tell that she was passionate about animals and genuinely cared about their well-being. One thing that I really appreciated about Kelsey was her consistent communication. She sent me updates and pictures every day, which really helped ease my worries and allowed me to enjoy my trip knowing that my pets were in good hands. Her updates were always detailed and reassuring, and I could tell that she was taking great care of my pets. It was also clear that Kelsey had a lot of experience with pets, as she was able to handle any situation that arose with ease. She was proactive in making sure my pets were comfortable and had everything they needed, and went above and beyond to make sure they felt loved and cared for. Overall, I would highly recommend Kelsey as a pet sitter. Her genuine love for animals, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills make her the ideal pet sitter. Thank you, Kelsey, for taking such great care of my pets while I was away!

Dear Duygu, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional care you provided to my two cats while I was away on vacation. Your dedication and love for animals truly shone through, and I couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter. It was evident from the daily updates and photos you sent that my cats were in excellent hands. Your attention to detail, punctuality, and the genuine affection you showed toward them reassured me throughout my trip. Knowing that they were comfortable and happy in your care allowed me to relax and enjoy my vacation to the fullest. Your professionalism and reliability were truly commendable, and I would not hesitate to entrust my furry friends to your care again in the future. You went above and beyond my expectations, and for that, I am extremely grateful. Thank you, Duygu, for being an amazing pet sitter and for giving my cats the love and attention they needed. Your service through Pawshake was a lifesaver, and I'm so glad to have found you. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone in need of a caring and responsible pet sitter. Warmest regards, Melike
