I have had many pets during my lifetime, all of whom I remember and have loved and cared for very much.
My husband and I live in our own home on a quarter-acre block in the leafy suburb of Kilsyth, just at the foot of Mount Dandenong - with our dogs, Charlie (cocker spaniel), Jasper (Maltese/Shitzu cross) and cats Sweet Pea and NIKITA (spayed tabbies).
From time to time our grandchildren visit and they love and play with our pets as much as we do. I can honestly say that your pet will be in good hands with me - whether at your home or mine.
My preference is for daytime pet sitting (cats or dogs) and dog boarding, and I am happy to walk your dog. If at all possible, I would prefer to look after cats or just visit and feed them at your home (with love and cuddles), as cats feel safest in their own surroundings. Dogs can be at either, as they respond well to love and attention with the right carer, no matter where they are housed.
All my pets are vaccinated and in a healthy condition, with regular vet checks each year. So there's no need to worry about your pet's health while in my care. Except for the occasional outing to the shops or appointment, I am home most days and evenings and can fit in with your preferred routine for your pet. Charlie usually enjoys mincemeat, some dried food and chicken necks for his meals twice a day and I would feed your pet the same, unless you tell me otherwise. My cats love cans and sachets of Felix, Applaws and Fancy Feast - they’re fussy and spoilt, but I do love them and get much love in return.
My skills with dogs and cats have developed over many years. As an animal lover, I have always ensured they have been in a healthy condition, with the help of my local veterinarian whom I have known for a long time. As I am semi-retired, I am free to choose what I really love to do and this is to give a lot of love and attention to my pets. A typical day would start with feeding the animals, followed by a dog walk of 40 - 60 minutes approximately. The cats prefer to sleep most of the day but know exactly when it's mealtime, and if I'm running behind they’ll remind me!
At night, Jasper sleeps at the side of my bed and my cats sleep on the bed with me. I'm happy for this arrangement if needed - depending on your pet's preferences. I'm very fond of lap cats in particular and can give your cat as much time as they need to comfort them if they are anxious in any way.
Trust me with your pet and you won't regret it. Thank you.
It was my first time using pet sitter, I was very worried and nervous about leaving my fur babies behind, but after having a phone conversation with Pauline, I just know she is the right person to looking after my pets, so I've decided to book with her. I had a meet and greet with Pauline and Fred prior to our interstates trip, they reassure me that my fur babies are in safe hands so we can enjoy our short break without worrying. While we were away, I get report and photos updates from Pauline on daily basis, Pauline and Fred have done such a wonderful job looking after our animals while we are away, I have had a wonderful experience, I am very happy with the service, I highly recommend Pauline and Fred to anyone, we definitely will use their services again in the future, thank you very much.
Simba loved his time with Pauline and Fred. Pauline would send me pics everyday. Simba was very well looked after and I will definitely be booking again with them.
