Meow! I am Melanie, a cat sitter in Los Angeles, CA

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.

I just had to say goodbye to the love of my life — a tuxedo named Maxwell Wellington on 12/6/20. I found him as a young adult stray September 2006. He had hyperthyroidism, IBD, chronic pancreatitis, hip dysplasia and cognitive dysfunction (kitty dementia). Because of this, I am skilled in administering various types of medication including subcutaneous fluids.

I volunteered for a few years with a LA based cat rescue. This allowed me to help socialize and care for many different types of cats as well as 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?

Fun fact:
I was in the top 5% of sitters nationwide in 2019 & 2020!

Current and past clients include:
*multiple kitties with kidney failure (subcutaneous fluids administered)
*kitty with congestive heart failure (oral meds)
*kitty with mega colon (multiple oral meds twice daily)
*kitties with IBS & IBD (meds, special diets)
*kitties with asthma (inhaler required)
*kitty on chemo
*diabetic kitty (insulin injections twice daily)
*blind kitty with a heart condition (oral meds twice daily)
*multiple cats with thyroid conditions (oral/topical meds daily)
*partially blind & partially deaf cat (oral meds, eye drops)

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’m with multiple cats daily so knowing this information is vital so I can take extra steps to keep every cat safe.
*If your cat requires insulin twice daily, please message me prior to booking to check if I can accommodate timing.
*If your cat is indoor / outdoor, I will keep him or her inside during our visits. Murphy’s law hits hard when parents aren’t around. This is for the safety of your cat. There are absolutely no exceptions.
*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).
