About Samantha

Who are we? We are Dolce & Gabbana. Bonded tuxedo sisters of St Kilda! Our owner is Sam. She adopted us from Forever Friends Pet Rescue and we have been spoilt since with healthy food, cuddles, toys and our favourite...watching bird videos on you tube. A message from Sam! Hi there! You are looking for someone to take good care of your pet/s and someone you can trust into your home. I know because that's exactly what I look for when I get a sitter for my darling girls! I am a primary school teacher who is taking leave in 2019 to put my health as a priority. I am looking forward to having more animals rather than children to take care of in this coming year. I love animals, particlarly cats and dogs, and I consider their company and affection therapeutic by nature. I grew up in the country with 2 cats, a dog, ducks, chickens and a horse. As an adult I have taken care of 4 rescue cats as a foster carer. One of the attempts was what we call a foster fail as I ended up adopting Possum, a beautiful 10 yr old domestic short hair. Unfortunately, Possum passed away in 2018. Within a month, I had adopted 2 more cats, Dolce & Gabbana! I am an extremely trustworthy person who will follow your pet care routine to the letter e.g. closing and locking specific doors before I leave your home. What I can do for you? - visiting your cat or dog in the comfort of their own home - feeding and providing fresh water - stroking and massage - playing with toys, playing fetch - walking your pet - notes left for you - ease of communication, regular photos and videos sent to you of your pet/s - in case of an emergency, I have 2 cat carriers and a car to transport pets to your vet or emergency after hours centre - a trusted person to maintain the well-being of your pet and uphold the security of your home

NOTE: As of May 11, I am only available for dog walking on weekends and 1 cat visit during afternoon/evenings any day of the week.

Samantha was amazing and took great care of my cat. They became fast friends! She was great to communicate with and gave me constant updates while I was away and was conscientious enough to hold on to our keys an extra day in case of any flight delays. Would highly recommend!

Sam was the best petsitter I've booked through Pawshake. She was professional and considerate and her communication was excellent. I came home to two happy cats and my house was very well-taken care of. She even looked after my plants! I would 100% book Sam again.
