Hello! I am a small business owner and freelance writer living in Melbourne. I am an animal lover and advocate and have been pet-sitting for the last eighteen months. Over that time I have looked after and loved five cats, six chickens, four dogs, a rabbit and five stick insects (low maintenance and intriguing creatures).

Pet-sitting was not something I planned but has turned out to be a great adventure. I have had wonderful experiences - although it is always sad to say goodbye - and have decided that I would like to continue sitting which is why I have joined this site. It goes without saying that I take the responsibility of caring for someone's pet very seriously. As a small business owner I am not bound by 9-5 work hours so am able to spend lots of quality time with your buddy.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

No rating Hello Everyone We had the lovely Louise house sit for us for a month in July 2018. We left Louise in charge of our 2 cats, 1 dog and 4 stick insects. Out of all the animals our dog was probably the most we worried about as she was rescue that came with a few problems, mainly anxiety. Louise was fantastic with them all. She would send us photos and video footage of them in our absence which was so lovely to see. When we got back the none of the animals hadn't missed us at all and our dog was ... MORE

Hi everyone. Louise looked after our tabby cat and blue tongue lizard for 5 weeks. Our tabby is completely deaf, has a daily oral medication as a well as other "seniors" requirements! Our bluetongue requires a specific diet of snails and other treats. Louise did a fantastic job adapting to their needs, spoiling them both and ensuring they were happy and loved. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived home. We would recommend Louise and would certainly ask her to come back. Thanks again ... MORE

Louise looked after my 2 fur baby's (1 dog and 1 cat) with about 4 days notice! Her communication was fantastic and I came home to a tidy house, and well looked after pets. Would definitely recommend her

Louise was a terrific house sitter. My clingy cat was very well cared for and I returned to a lovely house that was very clean. I have engaged Louise twice now and should I need a house sitter again I would certainly ask Louise.

No rating Louise looked after our little dog for 2 weeks and we came home to see that our little dog was well looked after. Louise adored our dog and spoiled her rotten. We will definitely have Louise back again and I am very sure our dog will be happy to see her again.

No rating Louise looked after our home and our 18 month old (high-maintenance!) Cavoodle, Fanta, whilst we were on our honeymoon and again for a couple of nights in May. We could not have asked for a better sitter. Our house was immaculate on our return and we had one very happy dog - we're pretty sure Fanta fell in love with Louise and our plants were in better condition following her stay too! Communication with Louise was a breeze and she even sent us pics of Fanta along the way which was lovely. ... MORE
