About Mélody

Hi, my name is Mélody, I'm French and I moved to the Netherlands one year ago. I don't speak Dutch yet but my english is enough to make me understand.

I am not a student anymore and as I quited my job in France to follow my husband here, I don't work. So I have plenty of time to tare care of your pets! :)

I loves animals specially dogs and cats, but also every furry pets, and I've always had cats. I have one who will soon be 9 years old! I consider him as my baby and I do everything to make him happy every day. I helped shelter to find an adoptive family for cats and dogs when I lived in Gorgia and South Korea, and I spent time wolking dogs. And last year in Portugal, I took care of street cats by feeding them, giving them affection, sterilizing and getting some of them adopted :)

Also I was cat-sitting when I lived in France, sometimes I had to go to the animal's house and other times I took care in my home, so my cat is used to having other cat with him. So I can take care of your cat in my house if needed! I also can have your dog in my house but my cat accepts only calm dogs, he's afraid of big dogs.

Your cat could sleep in his own basket and he also could go on the couch or bed as our cat do it too! We have a house with a little garden wich is fully fenced and our windows and gates are safe and secured. So he could go outside if he's used to, if not, he will stay inside of course!

When I do my cat-sitting visite, I stay one hour with your sweety pet. If it's at your home, first I give food and change water, then I clean litter box or rodent/rabbit cage. When the essential things are accomplished, then the fun part can start! I'm adapting according to your needs and those of your pet. I'm used to very shy cat and also to playfull cat and them who need a lot of attention. For the first one, I will do my best to make him/her confident by speaking to him and not being invasive, and I'm sure of it, you would be surprised by seing him in my kneeks (if I take care of him for enough time of course). For the second one, I will be glad to invent new play and make him/her run! For the pot of glue, I will give him/her a lot of cuddles!!!

For the dog walking, I walk between 30 minutes and one hour, it depend of the tiredness of your dog. Also I can provide 5 times a day a walk for your doggie.

I can take care of your bird (I pet-sitted a parrot in my home once, it was very funny^^), or any kind of animals (any but not spiders sorry) feel free to ask me!

One more thing, I can give oral medication to your pet as I give every day to my cat for his heart desease.

I hope you will not to hesitate to conctat me for your little precious! He/her will be in good hands!

Hope to speak to you soon!

Ik had geen betere zorg kunnen wensen voor mijn kater Jimi toen ik 2 weken op vakantie was. Ik wilde hem thuis laten blijven (in plaats van ergens logeren) omdat ik net verhuisd ben. Mélody is elke dag een uur langsgekomen en los van het voeren en de kattenbak heeft ze hem overladen met aandacht, wat Jimi heel fijn vindt. Ik kreeg elke dag wel wat filmpjes en foto’s zodat ik kon zien hoe het met hem ging. Het was duidelijk dat Jimi haar erg graag mocht. Ze heeft zelfs nog een paar speeltjes voor hem achter gelaten! Ik zal haar absoluut een volgende keer weer vragen. Je huisdier is bij haar in hele goede handen!

We were out for 5 days and I was concerned about having someone to take care of our 3 months old kitten. Pawshake was suggested to me by a friend and after browsing a while I could find Melody. She herself has a cat, and from what I read on her profile, so my intuition told me she would take good care of Kato. It was an easy process since the beginning and everything was settled very fast. When the time came we took him there and during our holidays we were receiving photos and some details about his staying. :) He could go outside to the garden because it was safe. Kato was happy there, so we were happy too! The last thing you want when on holidays is to be concerned or not completely free to enjoy your free time. I totally recommend Melody to anyone and I will use her services again if needed :) Thanks for your help Melody!
