Hi, there! My name is Eboni and I’m a bona fide animal lover. From those with fur to those with scales, I am passionate about animal welfare and want to ensure that every individual is receiving quality of life. Currently, I am a PhD (archaeology) candidate at the ANU, specialising in zooarchaeology. I also work part-time as a consulting archaeologist with a focus on Aboriginal archaeology.
My household consists of myself, my partner and our adorable cats, Vor, Tyr & Arani. Both Vor and Tyr are male (de-sexed) domestic shorthairs, and Arani is a male (de-sexed) ragdoll.
I became a pet sitter in 2018 simply because I love being surrounded by (non-human) animals. Ever since I was a young girl, I have had an affinity with them. I mean, which child doesn’t dream of “working with animals” when they grow up? As I grew older I continued to learn as much about all kinds of animals as I possibly could. During my third year of uni, I went to the Cambodian forest for a month to observe the behavioural ecology of several monkey species and gibbons. As I progressed in to my masters and PhD, I specialised in zooarchaeology, the study of animal (including human) remains. I strongly believe that human animal and non-human animals share this Earth and we must work together in order to allow all species to flourish.
To support myself through university, I worked as a dispensary technician at Chemist Warehouse. In order to become a dispensary technician, I was required to obtain a Certificate III in Community Pharmacy. This course had several modules pertaining to pet care. I am confident in diagnosing and prescribing minor conditions (hay fever, eczema, superficial cuts and scrapes, etc), as well as administering any oral or topical medications.
As an archaeologist, I am required to travel for fieldwork. However, once excavations have been completed and it's time for the artefact analysis and report writing, I work from my home office. This means that when I am in Tuggerah, I am at home most of the time and therefore have an ample amount of time to spend with your beloved pets.
