About Crystal

Hi,

I am a kind, caring, responsible person who is passionate and adores cats, dogs and other animals. I have finished my studies in Certificate 3 in Animal Companion Services at C.I.T. and I worked in a Veterinary Hospital for nearly two years as an Animal Attendant/Vet clinic assistant!

In Feb 2017 I have started a new job in a Puppy School facility. I love my job and want to follow the animal field for my career.

I offer animal minding (where I will go to your house to feed your animals and give them love and company while you're away or stay the night) all days of the week. I am extremely persistent with sending photos and videos to your mobile through the phone application ‘WhatsApp’ multiple times a day so that you can feel at ease when you're away, knowing that your fur babies are happy and cared for.

If I’m staying overnight I would need access to Wifi as my mobile phone doesn’t have much data, I find WhatsApp is the best way to send photo and video updates to you. It’s an app you can download on your phone and instead of mobile data to send photos/videos it uses Wifi. It’s a wonderful way for me to keep you updated about your fur babies throughout the day!

Animals to me make life amazing, I am a crazy cat and dog lady. They make my everyday so happy and get me through the tough times in my life just by being themselves. The animal field is the pathway I always want to be in! In my life I had a dog in my childhood years, many black cats growing up. In my adult years I've owned two pet rats and I own a beautiful two beautiful cats: Mr. Penelope my tuxedo cat who is 6, who I adopted when he was a tiny little kitten and Ebony my black cat who is 5 who I adopted in October 2016. If I had my own yard I would own a dog and I am looking forward to owning a couple dogs one day, although I do not own any as of yet, my best friend and roommate has two gorgeous dogs (a 9 year old Labrador and a puppy poodle x). Myself, my cats, my roomie and her 2 dogs all live together, my cats are used to having dogs around and Ebony in particular loves the old lab so much she rubs up against him and head-butts him with love.

I am happy to look after any animal of yours (including reptiles, birds, fish and rodents). Since my prices are higher as part of my service I'm happy to water your garden (bring your mail in) and happy to discuss other things and I am also comfortable with giving medications to your pets.

I have a recent Police Name Check and Care for vulnerable people card.

Thank-you for taking the time to read my story. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Crystal took excellent care of our fur-baby, and we will definitely be seeking her services again in the future! She knew I was concerned about leaving our toy poodle, so she sent lots of photos and videos so that I could be reassured he was okay. Thanks so much Crystal!

Crystal was wonderful with our pup. She took into account all the instructions we left for her and we got lots of updates of a happy pup while we were out.

Thanks!!
