I am a pet lover like all of us here and I grew up surrounded by pets, my advantage is that I work in an animal health pharmaceutical company so I know a lot about pet medicines, diseases and behaviour and might be able to give you some freebis =)
I have been doing pet sitting/pet visits in Australia for the last 6 years. For 4 of those years I also worked as a volunteer for the Inner West Community Centre taking Rocky for a walk once a week. He is the pet of this lovely old lady that cant take him out no more. That by the way, is still a good friend!
For 1 year and a half I travelled around the world and used the website trusted housesitter to do exactly the same, care for pets, caring for pets in exchange for accommodation. I cared for 2 cats in Ecuador, 2 donkyes, 5 cats, 3 dogs and 2 chickens in France, and a rabbit in Mexico. Thats how flexible I can be!
I am currently living in Marrickville and cannot board animals, but I would love to take your pet for a walk, make home visits and even stay for the night! Please note that I work full time Monday until Friday, from these 5 days, 2 I can work from home.
Miriam is an excellent pet sitter - our cats loved her. Trustworthy, reliable and an excellent kitty photographer. We enjoyed her daily updates a lot. Highly recommended.
Miriam was an amazing sitter. We needed someone to come last minute while we were already away for Christmas. Miriam was so flexible and easygoing, it really relieved all of our stresses. She was very attentive and sent us lots of pictures of our cat, and she even managed to put him at ease enough that he came out of his hiding spot. The house was also perfectly tidy when Miriam left. I would definitely contact her again, and would highly recommend her to others!
