About Miriam

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 freebies =)

I have been doing pet sitting/visits in Australia for the last 8 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. Her 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 an the house in exchange for accommodation. I cared for 2 cats in Ecuador, 2 donkeys, 5 cats, 3 dogs and 2 chickens in France, and a rabbit in Mexico. That's how flexible I can be!

I am currently living in Petersham and I have a car so I can pet visit and sit all around the inner west. I do accept dog day care but only for small animals. Please note that I work full time Monday until Friday, from these 5 days, 2 I can work from home.They are usually Mon and Friday, but can change depending on the week.

For the dog day care service: You can bring your pet to mine or I can go to yours. If you bring your pet to mine please note that I live in a 1 bedroom apartment that has a balcony, I will take the dog for toilet every 2 hours or so, ideally no more than 2 pets at a time. I only provide this service for the days I am WFH, so I can spend proper time with the pet.

I am also fully vaccinated.

Miriam did an amazing job. I loved the daily updates and photos – she is a great communicator. We came home to a spotless house and a very happy kitty cat.
