***Available for cat sitting in Hawthorn and surrounding area only. Please note that I do not accept bookings from new clients without a meet and greet first; this is for my safety and yours.
***IMPORTANT NOTICE: Dear clients, sometime in early 2020, I will be moving back to America permanently, possibly between March and June. Please plan accordingly. I have loved looking after all the kitties here and will miss them and you.
***I love cats! I will come to your home each day to look after your cats, once or twice a day depending on their needs and my availability. I know it can be stressful for cats to be boarded in a strange environment and many cats prefer to stay in their own homes. Your cat is guaranteed at least 30 minutes of personal attention each visit (usually longer), which we can spend on playtime, petting, or just staring at each other. I'll make sure they have fresh food and water and a clean litter box. (Yes, I can water your plants, put out your bins, and bring in your mail, too!) I know we all worry about our cats when we go away, so I'll send you daily photo or video updates. I can usually take last minute bookings, but please leave enough time for us to arrange a meet and greet if you're a new client, as I will not take a booking workout having met you first, regardless of the circumstances. While I prefer and am most comfortable caring for cats, I do have experience with other animals, so if you have other small animals, I'll consider it on a case by case basis. Please feel free to ask. (Although I generally won't take dogs.) I will try to accommodate these special requests whenever possible and would only turn you down if I genuinely didn't feel I could provide the best care for your pet.
Janell was so amazing with our very timid rescue cat Polly Jean. She was patient and kind. I was so relived to know she was there looking after her. Would highly recommend her.
Janell took such lovely care of our cat, and we felt very comfortable knowing she was visiting daily. We came home and he was healthy, happy and relaxed. Janell's daily video updates were also great for us know our cat was happy and okay!
In my "day job", I work as a nanny. I will look after your fur babies just as well as I look after human babies. (Often times, pet care is part of my nanny job, as well.) I take the responsibility of caring for your family members- whether they have fur or not- very seriously. I have extensive experience in a variety of customer facing industries and I aim to treat all my clients the way I would want to be treated, which includes looking after your pet to the same standard I want my own looked after and ensuring that you have peace of mind when you go away. I go above and beyond for my own cat and would like to do the same for yours. I have some experience in dealing with cats that are shy or have trust issues, as my own cat is a rescue cat- I understand that these cats sometimes have unique emotional needs and I am always mindful of minimising the stress they can feel when their owners go away. I am also well known by all the local strays as an excellent petter. I have a police check. Character references are available on request.
