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 a few years ago. Since then, I’ve been professionally pet sitting for more than 3 years now.
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 has been wonderfully fulfilling. I know the importance of punctuality, attention to detail, and reliability.
I live in a spacious studio apartment with a sun room, 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. I also have a number of parks nearby 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 and updates, and plenty of cuddles and loving attention.

I look forward to working with you and your pet!

Mel was so lovely and reassuring, which made me feel confident to leave Loni with her! Mel sent me daily photos and updates of Loni. I could tell that Loni had a wonderful time in a loving and caring environment. Thank you Mel!! Highly recommend her!
