About Sarah

Hi, My name is Sarah and I have loved animals all my life!

I have three wonderful cats and a little chihuahua named Eddy.

My life is pretty much my cats and my dog and I love to give them the very best in life. I love taking Eddy for his daily walks and have had a lot of fun in making food puzzles for my pets (which they love!)

I love dogs and cats just the same, but I have a special interest in cat psychology because I feel like there is not as much knowledge dealing with cat behavior as there is for dogs. I have studied endlessly on cat behavior and of course have learnt a lot from my own. I am a qualified vet nurse and I am especially interested in nutrition and behavior. The reason I have chosen to do pet sitting is because

I feel like I work amazingly with animals on a more personal level. I find all their different quirks and personalities fascinating and I am very understanding of nervous cats and dogs.

I get a lot of self satisfaction when I do gain their trust and am extremely patient with them as I highly respect and understand the process it takes for a cat or dog to overcome their anxieties. I also like knowing that I can help people out without them needing to worry about taking them out of their environment and into a boarding place.

I think it is such a great idea that animals can stay at home and avoid the unnecessary stress of being taken to a new environment with lots of other animals boarding beside them.

Now they can still remain at home amongst their familiar smells and routine.

The services I would offer would first listen to what the you the owner wants and just to describe your daily routine so I can keep it as normal as possible for your pets. I would also ask if there's any special diet and the amount in which you feed and just if they have any specific medical conditions such as diabetes so I am aware that their medical condition remains stable. Being a former Vet Nurse I will use the same method with a record chart that I have designed to record your pets feeding, drinking and toileting to keep track of their overall health.

Most importantly I will follow all of your rules and specific requests because after all, you know your pet the best :)

I can give medication if needed and as well as feeding and cleaning for your pet. I will also take your pet for a walk and provide playtime as well as brushing and LOTS of cuddles :D

I am also more than happy to do anything else that I may have missed here if you have an enquiry.

Sarah is amazing, my little puppy loves her! She’s incredibly flexible with her times and very knowledgeable about animals - replying and helping with any questions or concerns I may have. So pleased that I have found her to pet sit!

Can take care of exotic animals
  • Certified Vet Nurse as of 2016
  • I have worked at a cattery so I know the cleaning, feeding and recording routines
  • I have volunteered at RSPCA in the cattery where I worked with anxious cats and gain their trust
  • I have also volunteered at Native Animal Rescue where I have dealt with a wide range of native animals such as feeding and caring for baby birds, tawny frogmouths, boobook and barn owls, ringtail and brushtail possums and many bobtails. We once had a pelican come in which was a pretty amazing experience for me when feeding him. I also can't not mention Eddy the Emu, who I would take for walks around the lot. He reminded me of a puppy dog!
