About Melissa
Young, old, rescued, sick, small, massive, medicated or in need of some extra TLC and everything in between...We have loved them all!

We are a fun loving couple in our mid thirties who have really enjoyed taking care of fur babies and homes so far! We are non smoking, we have no kids or pets and are in possession of excellent references and a National Police Check.

As a Canadian/Dutch couple, we both grew up with pets (dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, Guinea pigs, stick bugs etc :) and we love being outdoors and going for walks on the beach to enjoy the lovely Australian weather.

Until last November we lived in WA where we have really enjoyed lots of pet sitting for about 2.5 years.
We then moved to Melbourne where we have done a lot more house sitting, taking care of cats, dogs, rabbits, fish and turtles.

We love discovering different areas around the city and take pride in keeping the animals as happy as a lark, staying in touch while you are away and keeping the home nice&tidy.
(Please ask us for the links to the websites to read the reviews, as Mindahome doesn't allow me to post them in our profile)

Recently we have moved to Brisbane and we are enjoying more house and pet sitting here! We are both working from home and also some casual hours, which means that one of us is home most of the time to keep your fur babies company and your home safe.
When we do work we mainly work in the CBD and just south of the river, so something not too far from there would be ideal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We would love to meet you and your pet(s)!

Thank you for your time,

Melissa and Cy were great. Our dogs loved them and we will definitely use them again. They were in constant communication with us and went the extra mile to help my sister in law when she arrived for the second half of our vacation.

Melissa looked after our old puss who requires meds every day and a fussy eater for 3 and a bit weeks whilst we were overseas. She was amazing at sending us updates and photos and we knew puss was in loving and capable hands. Our place was spotless upon return and would highly recommend Melissa to any other pet owners. Such a sweetheart thank you Melissa.

Melissa and Cy did an amazing job, it was so good to know that my cat was happy and looked after while on my holiday. Especially important when you have lost one of your animals so soon before my holiday, they put my mind at ease.
