About Melissa
Young, old, rescued, sick, small, massive, medicated or in need of some extra TLC and everything in between...We have loved them all!

We are a fun loving couple in our mid thirties who have really enjoyed taking care of fur babies and homes so far! We are non smoking, we have no kids or pets and are in possession of excellent references and a National Police Check.

As a Canadian/Dutch couple, we both grew up with pets (dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, Guinea pigs, stick bugs etc :) and we love being outdoors and going for walks on the beach to enjoy the lovely Australian weather.

Until 2018 we lived in WA where we have really enjoyed lots of pet sitting for about 2.5 years.
We then moved to Melbourne, and later on Brisbane, where we have done a lot more house sitting, taking care of cats, dogs, rabbits, fish and turtles.
(Please ask us for the links to the websites to read the reviews, as Mad Paws doesn't allow me to post them in our profile)

We love discovering different areas around the city and take pride in keeping the animals as happy as a lark, staying in touch while you are away and keeping the home nice&tidy.

Last year we moved to Surfers Paradise and are hoping to be able to enjoy some more house and pet sitting in this area! Cy works full time, but Melissa works part time and also works from home.

At the moment we only do housesits of a ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ฆ๐ฎ๐ฆ of 4 nights in the Surfers Paradise area.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We would love to meet you and your pet(s)!

Thank you for your time,

Melissa and Cy were amazing! Took the job which I posted very last minute, I got updates while I was away, and I've just arrived home to find a spotless house, fresh beds and happy, relaxed kitties. Highly recommend them ๐Ÿ˜โ€ฆ

Melissa and Cy were great. Our dogs loved them and we will definitely use them again. They were in constant communication with us and went the extra mile to help my sister in law when she arrived for the second half of our vacation. โ€ฆ

Melissa looked after our old puss who requires meds every day and a fussy eater for 3 and a bit weeks whilst we were overseas. She was amazing at sending us updates and photos and we knew puss was in loving and capable hands. Our place was spotless upon return and would highly recommend Melissa to any other pet owners. Such a sweetheart thank you Melissa.โ€ฆ
