About Melissa

Hello. I have never known a day in my life where cats were not part of it. Every cat is the best cat, I love them all. What I love about cats is they don't do anything for us unless they want to. And working out what they want is my specialty. I photograph cats and advocate for responsible cat ownership. I have worked as a photographer for over 30yrs and have moved into working with cats as well as breeding and showing cats. I have worked in a boarding cattery so understand the importance of good hygiene. I have a certificate 2 in animal care. Many have called me the cat whisperer

My husband Leo helps me with the care. We work together with our breeding program and showing cats. He is the absolute cat daddy.

Our service offers tray clean, fresh water each day, feeding and all the attention your cat decide they need. If I get the opportunity I will also send you a few photos or videos so you can see for yourself how your cat is doing.

Every cat is different

it's up to us as their care givers to ensure they have the best life they can.

It's our job to look out for the signs that they give us to let us know what they want.

its all about working out there needs as their guardians.

although cats sleep up to 16 hours a day, some cats need more human attention than others. We are happy to give as much or as little as your fur baby needs.

have looked after older cats that require medication and also diabetic cats that need insulin injections. Melissa holds a certificate 2 in animal care.

Helen, 2024-01-05

Melissa came twice a day to feed our cat Oscar. He thoroughly enjoyed her visit's…how can I tell from a cat? Because he was happy to see us and full of love, and looked healthy. Left him elsewhere out of the home once and he barely “talked” to us for 2 days unless we were feeding him. He’s been alone for 13 days over Christmas and New Year, but not alone. Melissa sent photos through at Christmas and New Year. She even opened a present on Christmas morning we’d left for him. Brilliant service, lovely to deal with. I might add, the house was in pristine condition when we got home, which was lovely as Oscar moults no sooner look at him. Melissa, we can’t thank you enough for your wonderful service. We will definitely be using you again if the need arises and you’re available. Knowing you cared so much made our holiday all the more enjoyable. Thank you 💜
