Hi! I live in the West End and provide kitty care in my area (Downtown Vancouver: West End / Coal Harbour / Yaletown).
Kitties have been a part of my life since I was a kid. I love them so much and can scarcely make it through a walk in the West End without stopping to say hi to a local cat if I see one. I can't resist their kitty charms :)
Over the years, I've loved and cared for many kitties. My last kitty family members were Boo and Pandora, who you can see in some of my photos. Boo is the black one, and Pandora is the tabby. I had them together for 18 joyful and cuddly years. Pandora was feisty and independent, but also super affectionate (on her terms, lol!). Boo was a sweet and gentle cuddle-monster, on your lap the minute you sat down.
Sadly, they both passed in the last couple of years (2020-2021). I feel incredibly lucky to have had them in our lives for so many years.
Since the kittes passed on, I've had a house empty of animals, and it is really strange! I'm missing the companionship and then I remembered Pawshake. I used to use the service for my kitties, and now I can offer my service :)
I have often cared for my neighbours' cats as well, including elderly kitties who need special care / meds. I can provide references, if needed.
For your kitties, I offer:
I work full time during the day (8-430) Monday-Friday,
but have evenings and weekends free. I would be able to come by before or after work on weekdays, and generally between 11am and 9pm on weekends (I am flexible on weekend timing though). I do not have a car, so need to keep appointments to the downtown Vancouver area.
Looking forward to meeting you and your furry friends :)
Melissa recently looked after our cat Winston, and was great to deal with. She sent multiple photos/videos every day. We returned home to a happy and satisfied cat and a tidy home. Melissa will pamper your cat too!
Melissa is kind and responsible, I know my 2 kitties are in good hands with her. Plus, she sends a lot of pictures. Thank you very much, Melissa
Boo had kidney disease, but with special food, meds & regular check ups, he was able to continue to have a happy life for a long time after diagnosis. Because of Boo's medical needs, I learned about administering different types of medicine such as pills (thank goodness for pill pockets!) and transdermal gel (a cream that is massaged into the kitty's ear).
