"Melodi has been indispensable for me. She has cared for my cats for nearly 3 years. I have a senior cat with health issues and a frequent travel schedule that often combine to leave Melodi with a tough assignment such as providing medication, fluids or post-op care. I have great a peace of mind knowing Melodi will provide professional care and the affection my cats need while I'm gone. Melodi recently went over the top when I suffered an injury that prevented me from returning for weeks. I appreciate that Melodi didn't miss a beat and my cats were happy and healthy when I returned."

"Melodi has taken care of our dogs and cats since 2006. She gave excellent care to our 17-year-old cat who had cancer and needed multiple medications. She's taken our dog (with behavioral problems) to her home and showered her with love and affection. Melodi is reliable, competent, and very knowledgeable about animals, and our dog and cat are thrilled to see her. Clients can rest assured when their animals are in her care."
"I always enjoy piece of mind when my family and I are out of town. I highly recommend this service and will continue to use it for years to come."Ty

"I have used Melodi for many years (and over a succession of pets) for vacation pet and housesitting, daily walks as needed, and other services. Melodi is conscientious, diligent, punctual and careful in every aspect of the job. She is always quick to ask for explanations concerning any changes in routine and to make sure that she understands exactly what is needed on any specific visit. The fact that she is willing to stay in your home if desired means additional valuable help, including plant care, package receipt and mail collection. And she leaves the house spotless! In addition, Melodi's years as hospital director for one of San Francisco's premier veterinary clinics make her exceptionally well-qualified to administer medications, recognize potential problems and provide transportation to and interaction with your vet, if needed. She truly loves her animal charges and will often call or email with a status report, even if all is going smoothly. I can't say enough good things about Melodi and her services."

"Melodi is a loving, professional pet sitter. We have an elderly cat, not a dog, who needs daily medication as well as food and TLC. We never had to worry about whether she was in good hands with Melodi. The two of them bonded and it is always a load off our minds when we are out of town to have Melodi care for her. Melodi is reliable, responsible and clearly enjoys her work. We couldn't ask for more in a pet sitter."

"I have used Melodi regularly to take care of my cats for over 8 years. I have 2 diabetic cats that require daily insulin. I feel safe leaving my babies in the capable hands of Melodi when I travel for work or family."

"I was given Melodi's name by my vet because I needed someone who could give fluids to my older cat Tibia while I was away. I trust my vet, and Melodi proved as trustworthy too. It wasn't an easy gig, because Tibia hated getting his fluids, and liked to hide and, as an indoor-outdoor cat, was sometimes under a bush or bench and had to be coaxed out. Melodi was unphased and goodnatured about all that, and managed easily without my oversight. She worked it out with my housesitter and came in as unobtrusively as possible. She was very very good with Tibia: gentle, concerned, and RELIABLE. Hey, that's a concept! I didn't worry while I was away at all. I used her for all of last year, until Tibia passed. When she heard about Tibia she sent me a wonderful note. It's hard to find pet care that is skilled, big-hearted and reliable. I recommend Melodi highly."

"I couldn't be happier with the services provided. I trust my caretaker completely with my babies and my home. I especially love coming home from a trip and knowing that everything is in excellent condition and that my cats are happy and content."

"I just moved to San Francisco last year and was so excited to find Melodi. Besides the fact that animals are her profession (hello!!?!!) she absolutely loves animals. I actually think she like my cat more than I do. I have to go away quite a bit and love that she makes my kitty feel like nothing has changed. Besides feeding, playing and snuggling, she brings in mail, waters plants and if I had a fish...i'm sure she'd feed it and sing to it!! She is awesome, a lovely woman with a great heart and I COMPLETELY trust her."

"Melodi is the best. She came to my rescue when my kitty became ill the day before I was leaving on vacation. She stepped in and helped with vet visits, gave injections (3x a week), loving care and advice along with being a super pet-sitter. She is reliable, knowledgeable, experienced and most of all, she cares deeply for the animals in her care. She has a certain way of dealing with pets and difficult situations and I cannot be more thankful for how she helped me and my kitty."

"I don't know what I would do without Melodi's help. She is wonderful to my older and less than social cat. My cat requires daily medication and quite a bit of tlc. Melodi goes above and beyond and my cat adores her. She is extremely thoughtful and has helped me more than once when I have had an emergency. Melodi is trustworthy, reliable, loyal and caring. I highly recommend Melodi!"

"Melodi is the best there is when it comes to pet care. She has taken care of my cat on numerous occasions over the past year and a half and has always been perfectly reliable. When I get home and find my cat healthy and happy I realize what a treasure Melodi is--she really loves animals and gives them plenty of love when she visits, in addition to food and housekeeping. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
