About Melissa

Hi there! 

My name is Melissa, I'm 27 and I have recently moved to Bath. I used to work as a Paramedic and I currently work part-time at the RUH in the mornings and I would love some pet sitting work alongside because lets be honest, you can never have too many animals in your life.

My experience with DOGS: I have dog sitting and walking experience and I also workied in a Doggy Day Care in Australia that looked after up to 80 dogs a day! I have never owned a dog of my own but have spent much of my life around their precious energy.

My experience with CATS: I have a family cat called Cherry who I have had since I was 10! I also have experience with both kittens and senior cats. I have also fostered cats previously.

I am available from 12:30 any day of the week for afternoon/ evening snuggs or walks, and on the weekends also.

I offer walks, day visits, once or twice a day and would be open to overnight stays too if required. A visit wont be a fleeting pop by either, I will happily spend a chunk of time with your pet, playing, petting, or just being in the house as I know the company is just as important as the food! 

I understand how difficult it can be to leave your treasured pets in the hands of another, having done it myself a number of times but I can assure you that I will provide an abundance of pics and updates after any of my visits as I know just how reassuring it can be! 

I will also aim to support with any additional needs you or your pet might have... medication administering, plant watering, bringing in the mail etc. 

I hope you consider me as your pet sitter and hope to meet you and your pets very soon! 

All the best, Melissa :)

Melissa was lifesaver looking after my two dogs while we attended my son wedding. She was very good with them, especially Evie who is nervous around new people. I highly recommend her and will definitely booking her again.

Thanks Melissa

From Lorain, Ruby and Evie ☺️

Melissa takes wonderful care of my dog, Bruna. The dog can be a bit anxious when left alone for long periods and Melissa has been kind enough to bring Bruna to her own home to keep her company. This thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated! I don't have to worry about coming back to an anxious dog after a long work day - Bruna thoroughly enjoys her time with Melissa!

My experience with DOGS: I have dog sitting and walking experience and I also worked in a Doggy Day Care in Australia that looked after up to 80 dogs a day! I have never owned a dog of my own but have spent much of my life around their precious energy. I am confident around dogs and very understanding of their individual needs. It's about getting to know their personalities and connecting with them individually. My experience with CATS: I have a family cat called Cherry who I have had since I was 10! So I have experience with both kittens and senior cats. I have also fostered cats previously. Cats all have such unique personalities but I trust in my ability to befriend any of your feline friends.
