About Mel

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, overnight stays, or walks. I do work full time Monday-Friday but I’m currently working from home and can work around your pets needs.

During a home visit (whether one or two per day), I’ll spend about 30 minutes at your home and I’ll send an update after each visit with photos so you can see what your pet has been up to.

For an overnight stay I spend the majority of the day and overnight at your house. If I do have to go out (assuming it’s a weekend and I’m not working), I’m never away for more than 2-3 hours. If you need overnight stays during the week we can negotiate around your pets needs and my work requirements (eg, a midday visit to check on them).

I can also take your dog/s for a walk (I prefer morning walks at this time of year since it is getting dark by the time I finish work at 5, but can negotiate depending on your needs). If you have more than 2 dogs I’ll only walk 2 at a time for safety. My quoted rate is for a walk of about an hours duration, but we can discuss if your pets needs are different.

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

So lucky to have found Mel to look after my cat - she is a cat whisperer and have complete trust in her .

Mel was the perfect sitter for our two Italian greyhounds who can be a little high maintenance. Nothing was a problem. Great communication while we were away. She was very patient and understanding and I would definitely recommend her services. :)
