"Pets eat before you eat" – someone said this once and its stuck with me in caring for my own animals, and especially in caring for someone elses animals.
Hello Pet Parents and Travellers!
Im a 31 year old 'country girl', living in Toowoomba and working from home, which allows me the flexibility to work from anywhere and help a few people when they are away from the house, but have animals and a house that needs more than just a daily visit.
EXPERIENCE IN HOUSESITTING AND PETCARE.
Since 2014 I have been a return housesitter for 4 people in Highfields area, 2 weeks being the longest so far. (I am open to longer stays).
I have been a return dogwalker for a couple of dogs, including larger dogs.
I also grew up with animals, and Im told I have a good sense of animals and can relate to them well. Growing up, I had 2 horses, and family dogs and a few small pets - rabbits, chooks and guinea pigs too.
For the past 12 months, I have also been learning more about edible gardening in my own backyard.
To ensure your routine is maintained as you've requested, including (daily, and weekly and one off requests), your instructions will be written into a morning and an evening list and checked off every morning and evening. I also keep notes of anything unusal I notice about your pets and plants. i.e. off food, behaviours. etc.
You will arrive home to a clean and tidy house, just as you left it OR I can also provide extra house cleaning to welcome you home.
I typically arrive between 2-4pm on the first day, and will leave around 9-10am on the last morning.
I may be out during the day with work, unless instructed specifically.
I keep the kitchen and bathrooms wiped over, benches clear, and sinks clean.
I am a non-smoker, I only drink alcohol only a couple of times a month. I dont like big gatherings. I have my own car.
I clean 5+ houses on a regular basis, if you'd like to add this service, please do ask about prices and timing!
I love helping people and I'd love to hear how I can help you take care of your four legged family members in your absence.

Treatment of animals
Meg cared for our 7 fur babies while we were interstate. She was professional and both the pets and our home were very well cared for. We will definitely use Meg's services again!
Meg is a great pet and house sitter. I would be more than happy to book Meg again next time we go away on holidays.
