Jackie O.
Essendon, Victoria
Service Description
I have a Bachelors in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (Zoology major) and grew up in an animal loving family. I currently have a 21 year old cat, bearded dragon and a canary. I have cared for rabbits, chooks, dogs, cats, fish and birds.

I am happy to visit a house to care for multiple animals and am happy to bring in the mail or bins if needed. Dogs will be collected and walked at Aberfeldie park and then returned home and fed.

Cats will be hugged until they cease to tolerate the pesky human, kitty litters cleaned, water changed etc.

I also have a working with children check (so your fur babies are extra safe!) And I'm confident administering most treatments as required.

Please note I only accept bookings in the Moonee Ponds/ Maribyrnong/ Essendon areas.

We adore Jackie and highly recommend her. We needed a pet sitter for our two cats as we were getting married in NZ and all our close family and friends who usually look after the fur babies were with us. She was a pleasure to deal with. She always responds within a reasonable time frame and she came to meet our feline kids beforehand. She was even flexible with dates when we asked for more visits after we discovered slugs in our laundry the morning we departed for our trip and felt that the cats needed extra visits in case they licked or ate a slug (they're poisonious and can kill cats so we were very worried). Jackie also sent us photos of our cats like we requested via email. Getting married especially overseas can be stressful enough and our cats mean a great deal to us but Jackie was always helpful where possible and really gave us piece of mind and one less thing to worry about. We will definitely use Jackie again and would highly recommend her to look after your pet too :)
