About Laura
About Me: I moved to Canberra two years ago from Virginia, USA. Before I chose to be a stay-at-home/ home-school mom, I worked as a behavioralist in the adult developmentally disabled field.
Experience: I personally owned a cat, two rats, two guinea pigs, one bird and one rabbit. I have pet sat numerous pets for friends and neighbours through-out my life. I was also active in cat rescue programs in the USA.
1. I live in Lawson and at this point I am trying to determine how far I want to travel.
2. I am looking to stay with in an 8 km radius from Lawson (5 miles for me).
3. I do not conduct business on Saturdays, and I will answer request on Saturday evenings (sunset).

• Pets in contained habitats: I will spend one hour to complete the agreed to-do list and will play and/or handle your pet.
