I am a 21-year-old, studying my fourth year of Primary Education at La Trobe University.
My experience: I babysit for a family but when they go away, I visit their cats daily to feed and replenish their water. Another family I babysit for has given me a similar position to feed their cat and clean his litter tray when they go away. I have petsat for my parent's dog, cat and fish when they had gone away. I previously volunteered in a Cattery which is where I adopted my boy Gandalf (5 years old, pictured).
My tasks at the Cattery included: cleaning the walls, mopping the floors, brushing their scratching posts, emptying, washing and refilling their litter trays, brushing their cats and playing with them.
My partner and I adopted our Ragdoll baby, Sterling (less than 1-year-old, pictured).
I am able to care for the following pets in the following ways:
Dogs: Walking, feeding, grooming (brushing), playing, give medication (if simple and required), drive to and from places, can teach to sit if you'd like, can visit (once or multiple times a day) or stay overnight.
Cats: Walk (if that type of cat), feed, groom (brush), play, give medication (if simple and required), can visit (once or multiple times a day) or stay overnight.
Ferrets: Walk, feed, groom (brush, bath), play, can visit (once or multiple times a day) or stay overnight.
Fish: Feed, can visit (once or multiple times a day) or stay overnight.
Birds: Feed, can visit (once or multiple times a day) or stay overnight.
Others: Whatever pet you have, I am free and willing to learn and help. Just provide me with what they need, when they need and I am prepared.
This was Caitlin's first pet/house sit for us, and our first time with a sitter. We couldn't have chosen better.
Caitlin was fantastic with all our animals; 2 dogs, 10 goats and 2 sheep. One of our dogs is quite nervous of thunder, lightening and rain, and new people, but she took a shine to Caitlin right from the start. Caitlin provided us photos each day during our time away which was terrific. She left our home in the same condition she found it, and the animals were all relaxed and happy upon our arrival home.
We highly recommend Caitlin to anyone looking for a quality carer/sitter.
I cannot speak highly enough of Caitlin's care for Coin & Tag and also the respect she had for our home. We will not hesitate to book up again soon.
