About Rita

My name is Rita and I'm Italian. I lived and worked in Australia for a year up to April 2018 then went backpacking around SE Asia gor nine months. I've just come back to Melbs and I now live in Preston South.

I used to have a dog that my father suggested calling Panda because she was white with black ears and black were also the areas around her eyes.
I'm using a past tense because sadly my beloved doggie left us aged 15 in 2012. I was, and in a way still am, very affectionate to her. She was more than just a pet, she was my furry sibling! I still miss her a lot.

At the moment I'm unable to have any animals because I'm often travelling.
Back home though, at my parents', I now have two cats - Pepita (5.5 yrs) and Cleopatra Alaska (3 yrs)...I also miss them very much!
I wish I could have another dog and I wish I could have a pet wherever I go, but since this is not possible I thought I'd love to at least look after one of them as if he/she was mine :)

During my time in Perth I had the chance to look after a lovely cat and both parties were very satisfied with the experience. I'd love to be able to repeat it by providing a quality service which is mainly due to my affectionate care.

While travelling across SE Asia I also had the opportunity to volunteer at a shelter in Langkawi (Malaysia) - I spent there 5 amazing weeks and I miss my furry friends (dogs and cats) A LOT! Not only was I walking and feeding the dogs and playing with them, I also administered some medication according to instructions and performed some basic grooming on them.

Let me know if your pet is in need and we can sort it out!

Pet Sitting - Sep 4, 2017
Rita was a fantastic sitter for the two weeks we were away. Coccole was well looked after and seemed happy and content on our return. We would highly recommend Rita to look after your fur babies.
