Meow! I am Melanie, a cat sitter in Oakland, CA

Hey there, I am Melanie, and of course, I love cats! I got my first cat Sammy, after a dentist appointment when I was 8 years old. My mom took me to the SPCA and told me to pick whichever cat I wanted. I chose the quiet long haired grey cat. I have shared my home with several cats over the years and have come to realize I don't want to live without one.

For me, there is no greater joy than to come home to my cats greeting me at the door. I got into cat-sitting right before the pandemic, and it just became a thing I was really good at. My approach to cats is simple; I let them come to me. For a cat, I understand that it can cause them anxiety to have a stranger in their home while their human is gone. I do not want to add to that stress. I love to get down on the floor and play with my cats. I will do the same with yours. I am experienced in administering medications such as eyedrops and ear drops. I have given numerous topical flea treatments to my cats and cats that I sit for. I also can give them insulin injections and oral medications; liquid and pill form.

I currently share my home with a 7 year old sibling duo Carl and Not Carl, as well as a 7 month old spicy kitten named Taco. Cats are a treasure. I treat mine like the emperor and empresses they are. I will treat yours the same! I will travel to the following areas: All of Oakland: Piedmont, Temescal, Rockridge, West Oakland, Laurel, Fruitvale, Skyline, Seminary/Mills College, Berkeley, Albany, Richmond, El Cerrito, and most of San Francisco: SOMA, Mission, FiDi, Tender-Nob, Richmond District, Laurel District .
