Pets take to me quickly as they sense I love having them around. I don't have my own because I travel too much in a van built for 1, but I have lived with fur-babies and feathered-friends most my life. In exchange for giving them the attention they need, they reward me with the love, affection and cuddles we all enjoy. Taking puppies for walks motivates me to exercise as we enjoy meeting other animal lovers along the beaches and parks.
I've been officially house and pet-sitting since 2017 as it suits my nomadic lifestyle of travelling in my campervan while working online. Pets and I happily keep each other company so it's a win-win situation for us all.
I work as an online EST Trainer (career coach) for unemployed youth and have just finished my degree in Information Technology.
I am also qualified in Small Business Management, Bookkeeping and Training & Assessment.
My passion is helping others succeed in their career choices and I have a deep heart for helping those suffering homelessness.
I enjoy daily meditations, walking, eating a healthy diet, swimming at the beach, visiting my children and grandchildren, and living life to the full on the road. Due to my work commitments, I am unable to give pets under 2 years old the one-on-one time they need. I suit more mature animals who are used to their owners going off to work and thriving on all the cuddles we share when I can focus on them in the evenings.
I have also worked out that 2 small to medium sized dogs at once is my limit
as my arms find it difficult to hold onto the bigger excitable dogs.
Cats are no problem at all.
I can transport the pets to the beach, parks, vet, and shops if needed.
I provide house-sitting services on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane and Northern NSW Coastal areas.
I am available to meet face-to-face depending on where I am at the time, or via a Zoom meeting or video chat call.
What I request from you as the Home/Pet Owner, is access to a reliable internet service if its a rural property (otherwise I use my own), use of electricity and water, access to amenities and a well-written emergency action plan in case anything unlikely crops up while you are away. I will be working from home while I keep your home in the condition you left it in and your pets happy and safe, enabling you to fully enjoy your time away with peace of mind.
I look forward to meeting you and your gorgeous furry family soon.
Felicity showed great care for both frank and Katy. We got regular updates and photos while we were away. Our house was left in immaculate condition. Have already rebooked!
Felicity is a terrific pet sitter, I was able to go away for the weekend knowing my three beasties Molly my dog, Max my daughter's cat and Herbie my budgie were going to be safe and well cared for. Felicity kept in touch and sent my photos, even one of Herbie all of which I showed my friends of course. I highly recommend Felicity as a pet sitter as I am sure my pets do too.
Thank you Felicity for giving me peace of mind so I could have a fun weekend talking to old and making new friends, spinning, learning a new way of dyeing wool also how to do brioche knitting........... the only trouble is I ate too much and spent too much on merino fibre !
Bring on next years spinning and weaving camps ! I hope you will be available for some of them Felicity
Feeding pets, administering oral medications if required, daily pet cuddles, puppy play and walks around the area, watering plants, keeping the house as clean as you left it, putting the bins out and collecting the mail. I am also trustworthy, honest and reliable, and happy for any background checks to be done. I know many of you will find it unnecessary for me to have to explain this, but for those who need me to, although I am very much a homebody working 4 days per week at home, and some days I don't go out at all, pet-sitting is a permanent gig for me, so I reserve the right to live a "normal" life from your home. This includes having the freedom to visit with friends and family impromptu, complete shopping errands and attend necessary appointments etc. without taking your furbabies with me. So please understand, as much as I would love to, I cannot be at the house 24 hours every day. Also, and I'm cringing inside when I write this, it is not a good time to have tradies come in and do renovations or fix things while you have a pet/house-sitter there. This puts the pet/house-sitter in a very awkward position where suddenly they are responsible for supervising work being done, and verifying that only authorised tradies enter the house, which is stressful, not to mention the upheaval for your dear pets who now require to be tied up or locked into a room so the tradies don't accidentally let them out. Please allow your pets to have the well-earned holiday they deserve too and book your renos at a time when you are home to supervise.
