About Mel

Hello, my name is M'liss, I am semi- retired and assist my daughter in her Property Management business part time. growing up I was always rescuing animals, I developed a passion for dogs and cats which led me to join animal rescue, during the 20 years or so of rescue, I also worked as an Animal Control Officer (dogcatcher) in Brisbane and Mt Isa, I took these jobs to make sure the animals were cared for properly. I have owned several businesses including a Pet store, a Cleaning business and A Bowen therapy practice. Holistic health especially for animals has always been important to me.

Staying at the pets home while their owner/s away allows me to give them comfort and support while reducing any stress or anxiety. I try to make it as much fun as possible so your pets feel they're having a holiday, they will be much loved with plenty of cuddles and hugs to help them feel secure, a daily walk is also included in the petsit. I check out places for walks so pets have variety, but also for pets with special needs on walks or in the car. I appreciate owners leaving instructions for feeding, also special needs or requirements will always be adhered to.

(dog poop will be picked up daily, and with cats litter cleaned daily).

The house will always be left clean and tidy.

I have two small dogs, Ben-- a Maltese x Bichon Frise aged 8 years and Jackson -- a lLhasa Apso x Shitzu aged 4 years, + Two Ragdoll x Persian cats aged 5 and 3 years who think they are dogs. I am fortunate enough to share a house with my daughter, who looks after my pets when I am away.

please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat or meet and greet. 🥰🥰

Mel was a wonderful pet sitter :) We all felt so comfortable with her in our home and so relaxed about leaving our puppy and dog in her capable hands. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Mel :)

Mel looked after our elderly Basset Zing who has just lost his sister. Gave him loads of time and love and saw to his meds. This is the second time Mel has looked after our babies. Communicates really well and highly recommended. Thanks Mel😊
