About Melanie

Hello,

My name is Melanie. I am a lover of all animals, I myself have one friendly cat who is 8 years old. I am currently working as a house cleaner on weekdays from 7am-3pm, so I am available for walks and check ins before and after work. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my boyfriend, it is above a business so we are the only apartment in the building with no neighbours (nice and quiet). We have a big back porch that leads to a large parking lot/alley way. Very spacious and clean living space, any animal would be happy here :)

I offer home boarding for dogs and cats. We can go for multiple walks during the day, for potty breaks and exercise (30-45 minutes each). Since I work, your dog needs to be able to stay in my home alone for 8 hours. I will make sure all my guests will be able to stay together safely.

My walks can be from 45 min to 1 hour after 4pm. They include the walk, and cuddles when we're back home. Visits can be from 45 min to 1 hour, including, cleaning the litter, refreshing the water and food and of course cuddles. *My price for home cat boarding is 20$ a night. Please message me if you would like to have your cat stay here and I will adjust the price in my profile for you to book their stay.*

Pauline, 2020-01-03

Melanie was absolutely awesome. I was a bit nervous about leaving my 2 cats for 3 weeks but from day 1 I felt completely relaxed leaving them in her care. Melanie sent me pictures and updates every day and I could see they settled in perfectly and felt safe and cozy at her place. She provided them with plenty of cuddles and food while I was away and they had lots of space to play, hide and sleep as well as a cat tree. Melanie is so sweet and patient with cats, I could definitely see both cats were super happy and well cared for there. I would absolutely recommend Melanie to my friends and other pet owners and would contact her if I ever need pet sitting again. It's hard leaving your pets when you're away but Melanie just made it feel easy and not stressful.
