About melanie

Hi!

I‘m an animal lover and have been around animals my whole life. My family bred and showed Cairn Terriers (like Toto from the Wizard of Oz) so I spent most of my childhood with dogs and dog lovers. I was also that kid who disappeared anytime we went anywhere and could always be found wherever the cats/dogs/horses were.

These days I share my (rental) house with my cat Bonnie who loves her single pet status so unfortunately I can’t offer in-home pet sitting or boarding. I am available for home visits (one or two per day), or can stay overnight with your pet if they prefer company. I do work full time Monday-Friday but can visit before work or after work, whatever your furry friend prefers.

While you’re away I can also take your dog/s for a walk (morning or afternoon). If you have more than 2 dogs I’ll only walk 2 at a time for safety

During a home visit I’ll spend about 30 minutes at your home and will send a daily update with photos so you can see what your pet has been up to.

I have experience with young and old cats and dogs and promise to give lots of pats and cuddles with every visit!

Send me a message if you’d like to know anything further or to arrange a meet and greet.

Cheers,

Mel

I can’t thank Mel enough for her kindness, patience, understanding and professionalism in looking after my two elderly cats at my Mother’s place on my wedding weekend. Mel was punctual, had excellent communication and understanding and kept us informed about the animals during her visits - to provide the peace of mind we needed to focus on other things.

I can highly recommend Mel to anyone looking for that trusted someone to take excellent care of their precious animals. Thank you Mel...!
