About Taylia

Hi!

My name is Taylia. 

I’ve been around animals my entire life. As a child, I had aquatic animals such as terrapin, fish, and axolotls. Additionally, my family often housed stray dogs and cats that wandered the streets of Kuching, Malaysia. Since moving to Sydney, I have had the chance to care for a variety of animals, from litters of puppies and kittens to rabbits, mice and guinea pigs. It is a habit of mine to help injured wildlife, which has resulted in my previous housing of a variety of birds and native Australian creatures such as possums. In recent years, I have helped train guide dogs, had a small cat called Breeze and work with horses! 

I’m available to do short visits for feeding and basic caring duties, day visits to keep your pet/s entertained or longer house-stays! I am a university student who works on a casual basis, so please be aware that on long-term visits I will have to be away from your animals during certain times. I am happy to provide a detailed schedule tailored to the dates during which you will be away - please contact me for more information.

I look forward to meeting you and your furry or feathered friends! :)

Taylia was lovely. We found her to be friendly and engaged at the meet and greet, and a good communicator following that. She sent photos and updates each day, and showed initiative and due care for our chickens. When we needed to give feedback, she received it very willingly. She was a pleasure to work with.
