About Angela

I absolutely love animals, but cats especially - I really get their particular brand of love ... and I love capturing great photo moments to send to you.

I lived up in the Northern Rivers of NSW for 11 years and eight of those years was spent volunteering at a no-kill cat shelter - it was a rich, rewarding and, at times, heartbreaking experience. This is where I met my Cheeks, who was nine years old at the time. She was surrendered to the pound and due to be put down when our shelter bought her in. Cheeks had a very sad and traumatic history, being used as a breeder. She was a hissing, scratching banshee and wouldn't let me near her. I decided that I would bring her home and love her. Eventually she let me kiss her belly and we shared a magnificent nine years together. Devastatingly I had to make the call to have her euthanised in May 2023 - she was 18 years old.

When you go away the best place for your feline is at home. Cats are creatures of habit and home is where they are surrounded by comfort, safety and familiarity. I understand that finding someone that you can trust with your beloved cat and your home when you go away can be a stressful sitution. To help minimise your stress I will send you daily updates, videos and photos.

I am also an avid gardener with over 200 indoor plants - an obsession which started during the lockdowns - and a huge native garden in my front yard that I created, which is flourishing and visited daily by birds. I'd be more than happy to give your garden and indoor plants some love as well. Here is a reference from a recent garden sit:

"A big shout-out to Angela for being a lovely garden friend and visiting my plants when I had to go overseas for a month to see my mum....my rose bush liked her so much it decided to grow into a full tree sized flower bearing thing of joy! If anyone is looking for a garden lover to take care of your plants..can certainly say I am grateful for her protecting them against the crazy heat and rain." Teresa - Stanmore

I am professional, communicative, mature, reliable, caring and kind and would love to take care of your beloved creatures while you are away. I understand that some cats don't care much for strangers or attention and I respect that and won't force anything. I am happy to administer oral medications, if they are cooperative! 

As part of my visit, aside from pats, play and love, I will feed and water them, clean/change the litter and give them a brush, if it's part of their routine. I'm happy to bring in your mail and tend to the bins, and as mentioned, water your plants and garden. If there is anything else that you would like to include in my time I am happy to discuss this with you at our meet and greet.

My service area is Ashfield, Ashbury, Summer Hill and Dulwich Hill. If you live outside of these service areas please reach out as I maybe able to help. I work from home so am available for visits mornings, afternoons and evenings.

I look after your creatures and home like I would want someone to look after mine.

Warm regards, Angela 

Please note that I don't smoke. I have a current and clear Criminal History Check Certificate issued by InterCheck and have completed and passed the Australian Red Cross Pet First Aid course as at 27 October 2023. I am an End of Life Doula and I'm currently studying a Diploma in Pet Bereavement Counselling.

Here are a couple of references from another pet sitting platform for which I received five stars for:

"THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: Angela is a fantastic sitter! We came home to an impeccably clean home and a very happy Boo 😊 Communication was always easy and prompt. Angela sent us most welcome updates about Boo, which really eases the worry whilst you are away. We would welcome Angela back in a heartbeat. You will not find someone more reliable or friendly. Thanks Angela ❤️🐶"

"THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: We were so blessed to have Angela care for our cat Chloe. She was so kind and caring and sent daily updates and photos of Chloe which was so reassuring as this had been the first time we had been away from her. Communication with her was so easy she would respond quickly with any questions or concerns . Would highly recommend her. Angela is such a wonderful caring spirit"

Angela is absolutely amazing, we could not have asked for more or be happier with how she looked after our cats.

Right from the first meeting the cats, who can take quite some time to warm up to new people, immediately connected with her. She has so much experience and such a great way with cats that we felt comfortable right away.

While we were away Angela sent daily video updates that always made our day to see our cats doing so well and being so happy. She looked after our place so well too, she is such a thoughtful and caring person. I can't say enough positive things about Angela. We'll 100% be asking Angela to look after our cats whenever we're away.

Highly recommend!

Angela looked after my two cats while I was away overseas. She did a fantastic job feeding them, cleaning up after them, giving them cuddles and pats and brushing when needed.

The communication was fantastic with regular updates sent to give me piece of mind while I was away! I would highly recommend Anglea for anyone looking for amazing care for their cats while they are away!
