About Megan
I'm a serious animal lover and over my 4 decades I've had pets of all kinds - dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs, mice, fish... you name it!

I decided to take a mid-life career break and have spent the last 6 or so months travelling solo and will be returning to Australia in early March 2020. As I had rented my own home out while travelling, this means I'm available to mind your home and pets! I am responsible and trustworthy and until mid-2019 was a full-time M-F senior professional. I'm currently looking into a number of options for a career-change, possible retraining or otherwise, so I'm enjoying being "Funemployed" and doing some online courses etc as I travel.

My latest feline companion (a delightfully gorgeous bluepoint ragdoll called Phoebe) stepped on a rainbow a couple of years ago at only 11 years old after a battle with cancer, which leaves me free to love and adore your fur baby (or other lovable critter/s!), as I'm not quite ready for another yet but crave cuddles and companionship, so I have loads of love to give.

I was previously minding pets in my own home through MadPaws and have plenty of references available (see below), including a number of repeat clients and house-sitting assignments. I'm now looking for house/pet-sitting opportunities upon returning to Australia (or possibly elsewhere!).

I can mind pretty much any kind of pet and they will be spoiled rotten and cared for like they're my own. I adore all kinds of animals for their quirky antics, games and unconditional love. I'll ensure they're well fed, walked and loved - and of course keep you in the loop with great communication while you're away, so you can see what they're up to for peace of mind.

I'm returning to Sydney from long-term travel and at this stage am still undecided where I want to settle again, so house-sitting is the perfect solution for me, providing the opportunity to experience different areas and meet lots of new furry friends!

As I'm currently in Voluntary Funemployment, my budget for rent is limited so I appreciate the chance to have somewhere to live, especially if it means I get to hang out with animals at the same time! I'm tidy and house-proud and will respect and care for your pets and home as if they are my own.

Any questions, please feel free to ask - I look forward to hearing from you!

Megan recently minded our house and menagerie for a week. We left our beloved dogs (2 staffies – a handful on their own), rabbit, parrot, and 5 chickens in Megan’s wonderful care. She went over and above our expectations. Our house was well maintained, and our furry family fed and cared for, like they were her own. The icing on the cake though, was coming home to a beautifully clean home, with happy, healthy animals, and a cosy log fire. I would recommend Megan’s services to anyone needing a house and pet sitter.

Once again Max had an awesome time hanging out with Megan. They went to the beach for a swim, and played in the park ever day. Megan is so considerate and caring, and we appreciated all the funny pictures of Max while we were away. Thank you Megan!
