Hi, I haven't gotten to use Jenny's petsitting services yet as my original petsitter came through for me ... But when we were messaging to set things up, I was definitely positively impressed by her friendly and speedy responsiveness. Would recommend her to provide loving and enthusiastic pet care. I know she loves cats as well as dogs.
