Melanie is a thoughtful and attentive pet sitter. She is attuned to animal cues, and provides healthy reinforcement to a dog's needs. She follows direction well but can also easily act independently. And she is diligent with her responsibility. I strongly recommend Melanie for your dog sitting needs.

Cats Rule Everything Around Me!

I specialize in caring for cats of all ages and breeds. It takes a particular kind of person to love cats and their big personalities! I'm definitely that person. I come from a family of cat lovers. I myself have a pixie bob. Like other breeds, pixie bobs have specific needs and habits: they chirp instead of meow; they need high-protein, grain free diets; they need tons of exercise and places to climb; they mature ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

Please let me know about your cat's specific needs, habits, and personality. No detail is too much! For example, I know my kitty will really lay on the charm with strangers to get more treats in her food dish. Sometimes she'll scratch at the furniture (which is strictly forbidden!) because she thinks she can get away with it. She hates it when you touch her tail or scratch her bum--she'll swipe at you with her claws out--but she loves it when you rub her belly and caress her ears. I know all of these little habits because I live with her. When I'm taking care of your kitty, let me know their habits (and yours), and their boundaries (and yours)!! I want them (and you) to be comfortable and happy!
