I am a new-to-Melbourne fluffball-lover, and would love to spend time with your furry friend.
I grew up with guinea pigs, a dog and a tortoise and stayed an animal lover all throughout my life, being surrounded with my flatmates' dogs and cats, as well as spending my time petsitting and dog walking. I am equally skilled scratching dog butts in between long walks as I am lying on the ground blinking slooowly to make scared cats feel at ease.
I offer both dog walking and cat sitting, and am always up for tug of war games or hiding stinky treats behind chair legs. I am also used to taking care of sick animals, giving them meds and eye drops for example. If you have a young and energetic dog that still has to learn a few basic skills or a nervous cat that requires a lot of patience, I will be able to adapt to their needs. I often worked with shelter adoptees and am not afraid to tackle some behavioural challenges with lots of love, patience and a calming voice. You'll get regular updates and pictures of your fluffy baby/ies and can enjoy your holidays or be productive at work while I clean cat toilets or scoop up dog poop at the park. Your pet will be well taken care of!
I moved to Melbourne for a few months after finishing my degree in Berlin, and I would love to brighten my new start with some furry love. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in my current home, but I would be more than happy to take care of your pets at your home, or take them out to Royal Park or some place equally tranquil.
If you are interested in me as your petsitter, I'd love to get to know you :)

Mirjam is simply amazing! She looked after our dog and two cats a few times now and is absolutely fabulous with them. She walked our dog on long walks 2-3 times a day, every day, and made sure all the pets were always fed, watered, played with, walked, and happy. She sent us constant updates (which I requested) and I always felt so comfortable with her there. She also helped us immensely as our dog required medicated eye drops quite frequently throughout the day. She was great with that and we felt our pets were in great hands. We would highly recommend Mirjam for petsitting! …
