About Rita

Hello! My name is Rita, I am originally from NZ and now living in Sydney. I have always been surrounded by animals when in NZ and have extensive experience in a caring for all family pets from rabbit, guinea pigs, fishes, cats, dogs and horses. I am self-motivated, outgoing, fit, energetic and a non-smoker. I build fun apps and websites when not looking after pets.

I travel a bit hence don’t have pets here and misses not having my own. However, thanks to Pawshake, I am so thrilled to be a stand-in mum to so many pets in Sydney. I cover Sydney Central and surrounds, Inner West and the Lower North Shore for efficiency and I am available at short notice. I am flexible and will work with you to make sure that your pets are happy and well looked after.

I offer the following services

·

Dog walking ( limited availability )

·

Home Visit - look after your pets at your own house. Once/Twice a day visit by arrangement

·

House/Pet Sitting - stay at your place to look after your pets

·

Administering medications, both oral or injection

·

Lots of free cuddles :-)

Feel free to contact me anytime. Look forward to meeting you and your pets :-)

Rita looked after our 2 cats for 3 nights. It was my first time using pawshake & i was nervous to have someone i didn’t know look after my precious fur babies. I knew from meeting Rita she was a kind & warm friendly person & it showed as my cats took to her very quickly. My boys can be shy and by her first night they were already comfortable with her. Darcy my eldest cat needs medication twice a day, which Rita gave to him without any problem. I felt so comfortable during our holiday as she sent me regular updates & photos of the boys. Returning home our house was perfectly tidy & the boys happy. I can’t recommend her enough & will gladly ask her next time we are away.

Rita minded my three cats over the weekend which included a diabetic cat and a senior cat who has dementia. Rita administered the insulin and cleaned up little accidents. I received updates at every visit which put me at ease and could enjoy my mini holiday. Would recommend her 100%.
