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 more than 2 years now and dog sitting for a little more than a year.
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.
My partner and I are two pet lovers who live in a spacious two bedroom apartment where any pet would have plenty of room to stretch out. We currently don't have any pets of our own, so your companion would have full reign of our home :). We have a large, sturdy scratching post and toys for our furry guests. Large screen protected windows in every room with secure locks. We also have a small balcony that has a door with a fly screen and lock. All fly screens and locks were recently installed. We 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 we can have them over here. Either way you will know your animal is in good hands, with regular feedback, daily photos and updates, and plenty of cuddles and loving attention.

I look forward to working with you and your pet!

Melanie did a wonderful job looking after my 2 kitties. I loved getting photos and knowing they were enjoying their time with her while I was away. Communication was fantastic, and the cats seem very happy. Thanks Melanie!
