About Melanie
I am a mature and reliable sitter who is a lover of cats, dogs, and other small furry friends. I have taken care of cats for over 15 years and have started to watch over dogs as well in the past few years. I am very comfortable around them and know when it's time for pats or time for space. Every cat and dog has his/her own personality and needs.My first cat was my family cat that we rescued when I was just 13 years old and then I adopted my very own cat at 23, who sadly passed away two years ago. Since then, I’ve been professionally cat sitting for a little over a year now.

I currently live in a spacious studio apartment where any pet would have plenty of room to stretch out. I currently don't have any pets of my own, so your companion would have full reign of my home :). I have a large, sturdy scratching post and toys for my furry guests. There are large windows throughout my apartment, all fitted with child-safety locks. I also have a number of parks within walking distance that are great for walking and playing fetch! I can come by and watch your pet at your home or I can have them over here. Either way you will know your animal is in good hands, with regular feedback, daily photos, updates, and plenty of cuddles and loving attention.

The animals in our lives are more than just pets, they become members of our families and I know what a great responsibility I have when watching over someone else's beloved animal. The time I have spent professionally pet sitting have been wonderfully fulfilling. I know the importance of punctuality, attention to detail, and reliability. I look forward to working with you and your pet.

Melanie looked after my 2 babies brilliantly. Eased their stress of being out of their home environment really well. Thank you Melanie! Would highly recommend Melanie's pet sitting services.

Melanie was wonderful. She kept us updated throughout the whole of our cats stay. Usually our boy cat doesnt take well to staying away but this time he was fine I will 100% be asking her in future to care for

I can thoroughly recommend Melanie as a reliable and loving dog sitter. I could tell my cavoodle, Daisy was completely happy and well cared for. I loved the regular photos Melanie sent me.
