About Mel

I‘m an animal lover and have been around animals my whole life. My family bred and showed Cairn Terriers (like Toto from the Wizard of Oz) so I spent most of my childhood with dogs and dog lovers. I was also ‘that kid’ who disappeared anytime we went anywhere and could always be found wherever the cats/dogs/horses were.

These days I share my house with my cat Bonnie who loves her single pet status so unfortunately I can’t offer in-home pet sitting or boarding. I am available for home visits, overnight stays (Sunday-Wednesday nights), or walks. I’m currently working from home most days and can usually work around your pets needs.

During a home visit I’ll spend about 30 minutes at your home and I’ll send an update after each visit with photos so you can see what your pet has been up to.

For an overnight stay (assuming it’s a weekend and I’m not working), I’m never away for more than 2-3 hours. If you need overnight stays during the week we can negotiate around your pets needs and my work requirements (eg, a midday visit to check on them).

I can also take your dog/s for a walk. If you have more than 2 dogs I’ll only walk 2 at a time for safety. My quoted rate is for a walk of about an hours duration, but we can discuss if your pets needs are different.

I have experience with young and old cats, dogs and birds, and promise to give lots of pats and cuddles with every visit!

Send me a message if you’d like to know anything further or to arrange a meet and greet.
