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

Hi kitty purrents! Please read my whole bio prior to putting in a reservation request.

👋 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 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 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 am happy to say I’ve been called a cat whisper on multiple occasions. 🥰 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! And in the top 10% in 2021!

CURRENT & PAST KITTIES INCLUDE:
*multiple kitties with kidney failure (subcutaneous fluids and b12 shots administered)
*kitties 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 (inhalers required)
*kitties with various cancers (some 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, herpes or ringworm. 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).
*If you have previously booked with me and do not see availability, send me a message.
*If you need morning or evening visits but just once a day, please send me a message prior to sending a request. My calendar will show availability if I’m not at maximum capacity for the day *but* I may be at capacity for mornings or evening slots. It’s best to message to check prior to sending a request. I’ll always do my best to help when I can.

NOTICE REQUIRED:
Generally speaking, I require at least 5 days notice if you are a new client and at least 3 days if you have booked with me in the past. I understand emergencies happen and no one can control that. If that's the case, please send me a message prior to putting in a booking request and I will do my best to help.

COVID PROTOCOL:
Despite LA lifting the mask mandate and myself being vaxxed & boosted, I require masks to be worn for any in-person meet & greet. If you refuse to wear a mask, a FaceTime meet & greet will be scheduled and a lockbox will be required. If I show up to the meet & greet and you refuse to mask up, I will contact Meowtel and have them cancel our booking. I have immunocompromised loved ones and I take it very seriously.

I hope to meet you and your fur baby!
