Caring, loving, quiet soul
35, Student & Artist
I absolutely love spending time with animals and have always had a special connection to all kinds of furry friends. I love taking dogs for walks and cuddling cats and am open to caring for all other walks of life. To date, I've looked after horses, cows, calves, sheep, rabbits, many varieties of dogs and cats, chickens and ducks, rats and even a dingo! I love your babies like they are my own. I am also very experienced with rescues (dogs particularly) and understand their differing needs with anxiety and medications.
I have been living in Bangalow for a year, renting a lovely studio on the property of some past sitting clients. I was previously house sitting full time and have been consistently booked during my time here doing local paid sits.
Six months ago, I adopted an elderly mini poodle who is a bit deaf and mostly blind. Due to her care needs, I take her everywhere I possibly can and can only take bookings where I am able to bring her along. She mostly sleeps all day in her bed and is toilet trained to wait for toilet breaks or ask when needed. She is quiet (no barking), very sweet and affectionate. She lived with a cat and another dog over the last decade. Other animals seem to love her and sense that she is old and a bit frail. She is quite timid of their curiosity but never reactive, not at all a grumpy old girl, just shy. She has done very well with all of our sits together so far. Feel free to ask me more about Ruby!
I am studying design part time and online. When I'm not studying, I am making art. Previously, I attended events as a public speaker and workshops facilitator. I was also volunteering as an indigenous youth mentor and a community ambassador for organ donation. (Currently not all possible due to COVID)
I am super clean and tidy, partly due to my immune condition as a result of being a transplant recipient. Health hygiene is of incredibly high priority for me, I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. In my spare time, I love dancing, reading and time in nature. I like to keep active and eat healthy.
I have my own car and open licence. I also love doing a bit of gardening and would be very happy to look after your plants.
I have been house sitting for many years, though only joined this site in the last couple of years. I have been sitting almost full time (on and off) for 5 years. I've lived in the Northern Rivers for the past 6 years and on and off for many beyond.
More 5 star reviews and recommendations from other sites and personal bookings are available on request. I hold a current Working With Children Check in NSW, which is inclusive of a police check. Happy to provide evidence of this.
I look forward to meeting you and your sweet animals!
