About Carrie

Hi, my name is Carrie Flynn.

"This is me"

I'm 39 and have lived with either a cat, dog or both most of my life. I am a qualified vet nurse, working in a 24hour vet clinic, and I would like some extra work petsitting for your pets.

My current fur-baby is a mature Persian-Ragdoll cat who still loves to play soccer and catch string. I love all animals and would treat your pet as lovingly as I do my own.

Experience

In addition to working in a vet clinic as a vet nurse...

I've petsit for cats and dogs of a variety of ages and breeds. I also volunteer at SPCA with the rabbits, guinea pigs and cats.

In my previous work as a teacher, I've been a primary caregiver for a preschool rabbit, and I've also helped look after fish, birds, mice and guinea pigs.

I have experience with feeding, grooming, walking, cleaning, medicating, supervising behaviour and much more.

My service

I love all pets and am eager to pet sit especially for cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs, but will consider other pets too. I am available during weekdays, in the morning and afternoon/early evening.

Cat sitting, Dog sitting, Rabbit sitting, Guinea Pig sitting

services: (feeding, grooming, medicating, cleaning - up to twice a day.)

Dog walking (up to twice a day)

Other pet sitting (negotiable)

House service (bringing in mail, taking out rubbish etc)

By the way

I really look forward to meeting you and your pet(s)

Carrie is lovely to deal with, did a great job of looking after my 2 cats while I was away on holiday. They are a little on the lazy side and Carrie was creative in her ways of getting them to be a bit more active, including setting up a treasure hunt with their dry food. Would highly recommend Carrie.

Carrie was amazing, she sent me photos each day so I knew my kitties were safe and happy. She even noted when one of them had thrown up and kept an eye out to make sure he was fine. I'm super impressed and our cats seemed pretty happy once we returned as well! Would definitely book Carrie again for future holidays! A+++
