Meow, I am Melanie!
Hi kitty purrents; I’m Melanie. I’ve been a cat lady ever since I can remember. My best friend as a toddler was my mom's Siamese, Mitzi.

The love of my life is a tuxedo named Maxwell Wellington. I found him as a young adult stray 13 years ago and he’s been with me ever since. He has hyperthyroidism, IBD and chronic pancreatitis. Because of this, I am skilled in administering various types of medication including subcutaneous fluids. I’m a volunteer with a LA based cat rescue so I get to help socialize and care for many different types of cats as well as many different personality types. I think Kenny Rogers said it best, “know when to hold them, know when to cuddle them, know when to walk away, know when to run.” That’s what he said, right?

Current and past clients include:
*multiple kitties with kidney failure (subcutaneous fluids administered)
*kitty with congestive heart failure (oral medication administered twice a day)
*kitty with mega colon (multiple oral meds, twice a day)
*blind kitty with a heart condition (oral medication twice a day)
*multiple cats with thyroid conditions

IMPORTANT NOTES:
*Please alert me when booking if your cat(s) has any contagious diseases such as FIV or herpes. This will not deter me from taking you as a client. I have a senior at home with a compromised immune system so knowing this information is vital so I can take extra steps to keep him safe.
*If your cat is indoor / outdoor, I will keep him or her inside during our visits. Murphy law hits hard when parents aren’t around. This is for the safety of your cat.
*Make sure to note whether the time is flexible or structured as I build my schedule around neighborhoods to maximize time spent with the cats (and not in traffic).

I hope to get to meet you and your fur baby!
