About Melanie
I am a reliable, trustworthy and compassionate animal lover and pet carer, be they great or small!
I am currently located in Rose Bay in Eastern Sydney, and have owned a range of different animals, from large dogs, cats, chickens, Guinea pigs and birds. I currently have a 1 year old Persian kitten who gets all of my undivided attention, and I can guarantee that your furr baby will get the same!
As my own kitten is a brachycephalic breed (meaning squashed in face) I can provide experience and knowledge for similar breeds in both dogs and cats and give them the specific care that they need.
I have experience working with animals, as I have volunteered for the RSPCA in the past at their Wacol campus when I used to live in QLD. In this role I would walk dogs, play with both cats and dogs, groom the animals, and clean their living areas.
I am able to do home visits or pet sitting if requested, but am also more than happy to walk your dog if that is what is required for your pet. I love to be out and about with dogs and miss having my childhood dogs to walk so would love to be able to do this again!
As I live in a small unit with a kitten, home pet sitting is unfortunately unavailable.
I have my own transportation and am happy to travel to other suburbs out of the East.
I can give regular updates and photo updates throughout, and I more than understand the stress of leaving your pet alone or with someone you don't know, and I guarantee to treat them like I would my own!
I look forward to becoming a reliable friend for your pet! :)

I was loathe to leave my fur baby for the weekend but my duties to my human friends apparently needed to come first (so society dictates). I found Melanie and was immediately put at ease by her beautiful friendly personality. She presented herself neatly dressed and was very calm. She immediately fell in love with Audra ( who could blame her) and my anxiety of leaving her was put at ease. Melanie provided me with constant updates on how my little girl was doing via pictures and texts. Melanie took Audra out on walks fully equiped with drink bottles and snacks that I had provided. Fed her on time, lavished love on her and cleaned her when needed. Melanie was an amazing sitter for my puppy. I will most definitely use her services again and could not recommend her more highly. Trustworthy, responsible and fun is how myself and Audra would describe her.

Mel was amazing and I had 3 very happy animals when I got home. She kept me updated throughout with lots of pics and messages . We will definitely be asking her to help us next time !
