About Nicola

My husband Ryan and I live in inner Belconnen of Canberra, the mutual love and interest of animals was what bought us together. We used to have a profle through Pawshake but put it on hold for 5 years to have our two human children. 

We currently have two cats and an indoor dog and until recently our indoor rabbit who sadly passed after 10 years of being an indoor bunny. Ryan and I have both also lived with dogs and small animals our whole lives including birds, fish, guinea pigs, mice, rabbits and lizards. It is safe to say we both know what it takes to give them the love and attention they need and deserve.

We were volunteer animal foster parents for three years through the RSPCA. We mostly fostered kittens who are too young to be rehomed (4-8 weeks of age) or have behavioural or anxiety issues due to previous owners neglect. All foster animals require alot of attention, patience and love before they are ready to be rehomed.

Ryan and I both adore animals and enjoy them being apart of our lives. We wish we had the room for more of our own. We are extremely reliable and would be honoured to look after your pets at your home.

If you have cats, or rabbits we will ensure they are fed, change their water, clean their litter tray, administer tablet forms of medication and of course provide them with lots of love, playtime, grooming and cuddles (or pats if preferred). 

If you have dogs we will feed them, change their water, administer tablet form medication and lots of cuddles, playtime and pats. 

Please ask us about any other requests you have to ensure your fur babies routine remains the same while you are away. We would be happy to answer any question you may have about Ryan and I and we would be happy to meet with you.

I have had Nicola care for the buns before, but I needed to add an additional review:

While caring the for the circus of fuzzy idiots over the long weekend, Carrot decided she could not be contained and escaped the playpen (she yearns for the wild, you know). Thanks to Nic's regular visits, naughty Carrot was efficiently returned to her pen, bribed with snacks to STAY there, and then barricaded in.

The best petsitters are the ones who stop your fur babies from hurting themslves

Nicola took great care of our cat, who was happy and healthy when we returned. Nicola was great at communicating to let us know how things were going. I would recommend her to anyone!
