Hello! We're Mel and Jesse - a young married Australian couple living in Cambridge who love animals and miss having pets of our own! We have both had pets growing up - a Cavalier King Charles called Beau (Jesse) and a Maltese Terrier called Percy (Mel), as well as budgies, rabbits, ducks and fish (Mel).
We have a house with an enclosed back garden, and are only a couple of minutes walk from the doggy heaven that is Stourbridge Common. I (Jesse) work full-time as a Product Manager and fortunately have the flexibilty to work from home. Mel works as an Egyptologist/curator at the Fitzwilliam Museum. Between us, your pooch/kitty/other pets will have around the clock care. They will indeed be pampered!
We will walk, feed, apply medication (if required), cuddle and pamper your pet. We are both really missing having pets in our lives, but do not envisage ourselves staying in Cambridge long term (because all our family is in Australia) so don't feel we are in a position to buy a pet of our own.
Please get in touch. We are sure that once you meet us, you will feel completely relaxed with us looking after your pet. We are friendly, reliable and most importantly, love animals! Mel also trained and certified as a pet therapist with Velma's Pets as Therapy in Australia and has considerable experience taking her Maltese Terrier, Percy, to nursing homes, respite centres and hospitals. So, you can feel assured that we are sensitive, loving and most importantly responsible!
Jessie and Melanie were fabulous caretakers of our two fur babies over a weekend away. They were very easy to communicate with, and very flexible. We loved all the pics and updates they sent; it was so nice to know our dogs were being taken care of and were happy, so we didn't have to worry at all. It was so nice to be away and know they were in great hands. They even let my dogs snuggle in bed with them at night, so I know my pups were happy and felt like it was a home away from home. Jessie is fantastic and we will definitely be bringing our dogs back to him!
