Animal Lover with years of pet-sitting experience

43, Administration

Hello Pet-Parents,

I'm from Melbourne, organised, honest, respectful, reliable and a non-smoker. I've looked after many homes and animals; dogs of all shapes and sizes, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, chickens, fish, and a chinchilla!

Pet sitting is fantastic as I love animals and travel. I look after pets and homes as if they were my own. Having grown up with animals, I enjoy their company and I love getting to know their quirks and personalities.

I try to maintain pet routines (commands, sleeping, dog walking/running, socialising at the park, grooming, etc.) as much as possible. I'm very affectionate and playful with animals. I know how important it is for them to have someone who will talk and play with them. I have administered medication and looked after elderly pets.

I'm house-proud, clean, organised (ex-visual merchandiser), responsible and experienced at running a household efficiently. For all my homes I maintain regular house cleaning, checking/forwarding mail, keeping in touch with photos and updates, looking after plants and gardens, and providing a welcoming home to return to.

I have reviews from pet sitting in Australia and overseas. Don't hesitate to contact me for more information or to ask any questions. (Kindly note: Unfortunately I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke so I can only look after non-smoking homes.)

Melanie cared for my two fur babies. She is great with dogs and they loved her too. They looked fit and happy and being able to stay in their home is a bonus. Melanie took excellent care of my garden and left my house in a spotless condition. I would highly recommend Melanie for any house sit, She is a gentle, beautiful girl, who happens to be a brilliant wise soul. Happy to give a reference by phone.

No rating Mel was a delight. Responsive, warm and very caring with our animals. Very happy to recommend her again.
MADELEINE (Coburg North VIC, May 2021 - 1 month 1 week)
Melanie took great care of my two gorgeous cats while I was away and even sent me pictures of them. I have no doubt they were showered with love and cuddles as their behaviour has not changed on my return. It's a sign that they were not stressed and loved having her around. I would highly recommend Melanie to look after your beloved pets and home next time you're away.
KYLIE (St Kilda VIC, Mar 2020 - 4 days)
Mel was wonderful. She was very professional and accommodating. She checked all our requirements for the cats and was very communicative during our trip. Plenty of check-ins and photos! We would happily have her here again.
LACHLAN (Yarraville VIC, Oct 2019 - 1 week)
Mel is incredible. Our dog Bella loved her. Mel took great care of Bella and our home was tidier then when we left. Mel is a wonderful person, kept us updated and we highly recommend her. Thank you Mel
RUTH (Clifton Hill VIC, Jul 2019 - 9-10 days)
Mel was a lovely young woman with a warm and responsible nature. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to sit for others.
