About Melanie

Hello!

My name's Mel and I absolutely love animals! I'm a university student studying in Melbourne and I've had cats all my life and especially know how to look after, approach and care for a cat to keep them calm and to not stress them out. Cats are my speciality.

I also love dogs and have experience looking after dogs as I've regularly looked after my friends and neighbours dogs throughout most of my teenage years.

As a bonus, I even know how to look after mice and birds! I love birds especially and have no fear of them. When it comes to mice, I have owned and looked after many and know how to clean cages and care for them.

I can clean litter boxes, walk dogs, clean bird and mice cages and am happy doing so! I will also give many pets and cuddles to any animal I look after, so they are sure to not feel lonely.

If you have a cat that's required to take pills or be given any medication, I am able to handle that no problem! Having owned cats all my life, I know how much of an issue it is to feed a cat their medication, and I am able to easily do so.

I especially don't mind cat scratches, you may usually find me with scratches and bite marks on my hands from playing with my own cat at home.

I promise that with me, your pet will be in good hands!

Melanie looked after my two cats and did a great job. Cats were happy and content when I returned, which was very reassuring as they can be a little nervous around new people. Would highly recommend.

Melanie was great. She came over for a meet and greet as soon as possible and asked all the right questions which made me feel comfortable.

Everything went smoothly while I was away and Truth was lucky to have someone like Melanie who stayed and cuddled Truth for hours.
