About Violet

Hi my names Violet,

Im a stay at home mum to two beautiful girls aged 7 and 9. We live in the lovely new Baringa estate at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. I have been pet sitting on and off for 3 years now as I find it truly enjoyable combining my passion for animals and my love for meeting lots of new people.

Our home is very welcoming and cosy. I work from home part time which is handy for any elderly pets or ones that don't like to be alone for too long. We have tiled floors (incase of accidents), air-conditioning, cooling pads for the summer, plus 2 living areas so lots of cosy places to find somewhere to snuggle up. I change water twice daily, give lots of cuddles and attention and there is always access outside throughout the day. Pets can sleep inside or out it doesn't really bother us. We have a fence up to keep them off the main carpeted lounge area. I include daily walks and brushing in your pets stay with me as part of my service to you. I generally only take one animal at a time and prefer small to medium breeds.

We live across the road from a large park and 10 minutes from a dog park which is perfect for daily walks. We have a medium sized backyard with very high fences for any cheeky escape artists and are only 15-20 minutes from an emergency 24 hour vet for extra peace of mind. I take photos and send you daily updates while you are away so that you can rest assured that your fur baby is happy and having a blast while you're away.

If you think I'd be a good match to watch your furry friend then please drop me a message and we can arrange a meet and greet and if everyones happy then take it from there! :)

I was a bit nervous leaving our young pup as he’s only 4 months and hasn’t done much socialising yet, but after meeting Violet and her family felt much more at ease. They were amazing with him. He became good friends with Gizmo with Violet’s guidance. He loved all the cuddles the family heaped on him. The communication was excellent, daily photos and updates. We will definitely be back next time. Thanks 😀

We couldn't believe Merlin took to Violet and her family so well. He was looked after and given a lot of love. We wondered if he wanted to come home with us but as soon as we mentioned car he was off. Merlin has trouble with other dogs but Violet supervised him with her dog Gizmo and they ended up friends. I would not hesitate leaving Merlin there again. Thank You to Violet and her family for your kindness and love for animals and doing a great job with Merlin.
