About Teresa
I am new to pet sitting and to this experience. I do hope you will give me a go.

After leaving my full time job in January 2016 for personal family reasons and having only had a few casual jobs since. I thought it was time to go and do something I will enjoy and not just a job.

I have over the years owned 2 cats and 2 dogs.
My yard is fenced so lots of room to run and play.
My experience listed below is experience with owning my own pets.

Over the last 6 weeks I have looked after a friends 2 cats and birds while he was away for weekends / long weekends or had other commitments and could not get home to feed them in time. The nights I was asked to care for them I went to feed the animals and spent time playing with the cats prior to being fed (even though one is not a friendly cat it still let me pick up and cuddle it for short periods of time. The other cat is a sook and loves cuddles)

With recently losing my dog to arthritis and old age I now feel a loss at home and being out of work I thought I would see if I could help others out who do not have anyone to care for their pets if they want to go away or just while they are at work.

I understand how hard it can be to get away while having pets as I was in that position for the last 3-1/2 years since my Mother in Law went into care. She was our pet sitter, she loved looking after her "grand daughter". I always liked them looked after at home or at my MILs rather than a kennel.

I have decided, along with my husband, that while we get used to the idea of another dog in the house that we would prefer short term (3-4 nights). I do hope you understand as we are still getting used to not having our little one around.

Please bear with me as this experience is all new to me and something that I am looking forward to. I have decided to have a break from owning another pet as just not ready to have another permanent family member (its too soon) and eventually going to take a weeks holiday then when the time is right another may join my family. As I love being around them I thought this would be the perfect solution to help others out in the mean time.

I am also happy to come to an arrangement if you are only requiring your pet to be looked after for an hour or even part of a day.

Please note

Holidays - I am looking at taking a few days off week commencing December 16, 2019 and then again week commencing January 6, 2020. This will be a wake up and go type holiday or may even just be a day out.

Facebook - I have set up a Private Group and once booking is accepted and pet sitting commenced a link will be sent to you. A few photos will be uploaded here and more photos uploaded to Facebook.
