About Kierra

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" Anatole Fran

I have been animal lover since I took my first steps. In my time as a pet mum and surrogate pet mum I have been fortunate to love more than 100 animals. You can see some of these in my photo gallery.

My name is Kierra. My pets are my babies and loved members of our family.

My family includes my husband and my teenage son as well as Arlington, (a Cavoodle) Piccolo (ragdoll cross) and a fish or few.

I know all too well the extraordinary love, and at times the heartbreak we experience with our pets, and the worries we have when we need to be away from our pets. As your surrogate pet mum, I'm here to love your pets when you are unable, to shower them with cuddles and to ensure their hearts and tummies are full. I will never just feed your pet and be on my way. And I pride myself on leaving your home as clean as it was when I arrived.

There is no such thing as a difficult routine. I get it... our pets are routine focused so I'll do my best to accommodate whatever you need.

It is my preference to restrict my house sits to 1-3 days so that I can continue to care for my pets and family. I believe pets do best in their own homes and I'm not in a position to take other pets into my home at the risk of messing with theirs and my pets 'zen'. 

I've always loved animals of the furry variety but am equally comfortable around the feathered and scaley variety (except those that go "sssss"). It's a bummer that I'm allergic to horses so I'm probably not the Surrogate mum for your rural animals. 

I'm experienced in amateur pet photography, "walkies", cuddles, feeding, medicine and care, and am up for a furry bed companion if that's how they prefer it. I'm also experienced in caring for palliative or ailing animals having suffered my own losses. I can work with you to ensure any special needs are catered for.

Truth be told, that's why I'm signed up for this. I have a full time but flexible M-F job. It's not about the money, it's about being a part of an animals journey - and theirs a part of mine. 

Check out my profile gallery for pics of my fur bubbas and those I've cared for.

***** Christmas 2023 *******

I am available for bookings over the Christmas and New Year holidays (until my books fill up). So get in quick!

I may only be able to offer 1x day visits at this time (home visits or 2x visits per day will be dependent on bookings and availability).

*****************************

A few extra details to help answer your questions:

My visit typically includes:

  • Feeding your pets
    • Filling water bowls
    • Offering treats, if a part of your routine
    • Cleaning litter areas and refilling litter
    • Playtime (with your toys of choice)
    • Couch cuddles
    • Pet photos (video on request)
    • Cleaning feeding areas and utensils
    • Meet and greet: I am happy to arrange a meet and group to ensure we are all comfortable with the arrangement and most importantly your pet is content.

      Keys: The preference is to pick up the keys at the point of meet and greet unless they can be safely left somewhere or we can arrange an alternative collection. I will typically leaves the keys inside your home unless advised otherwise.

      Multiple animals: I do not charge extra for multiple animals when it comes to house visits.

      Length of visit: My visit can be anywhere from 20-45 minutes. I prefer to work with the needs of each animal.

      Walks: These are not typically included in a standard house visit. We can discuss this at the time of meet and greet. These can be purchased as an additional booking. A typical walk is 45minutes.

      Kierra was amazing. She took great care of Monkey Cat and managed to make our very timid cat feel comfortable being alone with her. She even got a pat at the end of the week - something that has never happened with previous sitters. We totally recommend Kierra!

      Kierra was fantastic as always in caring for my two cats while I was overseas! I will continue to be a returning customer :)
