About Michelle

I am a passionate person who loves animals and care about their wellbeing. I understand how different behaviours, situations and environmental factors may impact our fur babies health and wellbeing. I currently have 4 cats (2 being bangals), but I have experience with many others throughout my upbringing. I have experience with fostering animals, and rehoming, some needing behavioural rehabilitation. I have some knowledge around health and wellbeing through work that I have previously done through volunteer work. I aim to be a vet nurse in the future. I also have had previous experience with pet sitting through other agencies. I would love to help out with dog walking, and pet sitting services such as popping by and providing your loved ones with food, water, and plenty of love! Whatever your fur baby requires can be discussed. I am quite flexible with requirements, however I need to state that I do not drive. If you are going away and need someone to check in, or busy and need extra help, I am happy to accomodate. I am happy to look after cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, rats etc. I am also happy to provide you with regular updates on how your pet is going as I know it can be scary to leave your baby with a stranger! I also have experience with applying treatments if needed, and clipping claws, if you require help doing so. Before I accept a booking I need to know things like: - does your pet have any special needs? - does your pet require medication? - is your pet a jumper? - does your pet have a specific dietary requirement? -does your pet have separation anxiety? -is your pet good with other animals/ people (including kids)?

-Dog walks are based on your dog’s needs (45mins-1.5 hours) and kept local to where the dog lives (I don’t drive and want the dog to remain safe with surroundings).

-home visits are about an hour check in give or take depending on your pet’s needs- food, water, play time, medication if any (oral or topical only- no injections), I can check the mailbox and take the bins down or bring them in for you, change litter trays if needed, you can add in dog walks in services, a good brushing session (my cats love their pamper time). You let me know and we can chat!

IMPORTANT!!!

I don’t drive, I live in Merrylands, off the M4, so bordering parramatta. I’m happy to walk or get public transport to help out with your babies. Timeframes need to be discussed in advance to accommodate travel time.

Michelle was both attentive and reliable. She provided detailed and individual updates which not only gave us complete peace of mind but never failed to put a smile on our faces.

I would not hesitate to rebook her and in fact I'm sure our little cat has made a ne friend.
