About Maria

I have lived with and cared for animals for as long as I can remember. Animals (both pets and urban wildlife) are a very important and rewarding part of my life.

I currently have one cat (Alobar) but I also look after an extended Magpie family, two crows, several possums and a hoard of diamond doves. I've had several dogs in my time too as well as many cats, birds and rats too, so I have thorough experience across many kinds of pets to draw on. I am very confident around animals and I look forward to meeting many wonderful new animal friends!

In my 60's now, working part-time I live in Strathmore so I'm happy to help out anyone in the extended area, so from Coburg to Moonee Ponds, Glenroy to East Brunswick, the middle north-west suburbs are all in my reach. If you're unsure if I'm able to help you don't hesitate to ask.

I'm available for house visits only, if there's a crossover in services you require we can discuss however boarding at my place is not on the table. Due to my reduced work hours two visits a day is easy to manage and I'm happy to stay as long or as little as is necessary to suit your pets unique needs, just let me know.

Maria was great, as usual. She has looked after our pets multiple times now and always does a great job.

Maria was lovely, it was so nice to go away for 10 days knowing our cats were well looked after!
