About Rowena

I'm an absolute pet lover and can take care of any type pet while you are away. I currently have a dog, 2 cats, 2 guinea pig, 4 rats and tropical fish but am experienced at looking after all different types of pets - cats, dogs, small animals (Guinea pigs, rabbits, rats and mice), reptiles, birds (including chickens and parrots) and fish.

While you are on holiday I will visit once or twice a day as you require and will send regular updates to you.

I am an animal lover who will pamper your precious pets! I have previously had a cat with diabetes and administered insulin shots every day so I am experienced with looking after pets with special needs. I live Glen Eden and am happy to travel a reasonable distance, other pettsitting jobs permitting.

I will also check your mail, water plants, open and shut curtains and turn on lights as required.

I get a few requests for puppy feeding during the middle of workday - unfortunately at this time I do not have capacity for this.

It was a relief to be able to leave the country knowing our two cats wellbeing and "the house" were in the good care of Rowena.

Right from our first communication she was on the ball and took on board concerns about feeding an older cat; generously offering a supermarket run for fresh food.

We can confidently recommend her service to you.

Rowena was incredibly professional, friendly, and obviously loves animals. She did a great job feeding our cat while we were away as well as doing things like taking out rubbish and clearing litter tray. I would definitely recommend her!
