About Miriam

Hello friends,

I have recently moved back to New Zealand and am looking to do some pet sitting for the wonderful domestic animals of this city. Because of arriving so recently to the country, my availability is pretty broad. I am going back to unversity in March, so there will be several hours of each day where I will be attending classes, but aside from that I should be around to attend to your pet's needs.

I am happy to walk your dog(s) for up to an hour in one session, come to your house twice a day just to feed your pets, and/or stay there to make sure they're well looked after for as long as you please.

Unfortunately at this time I can't board animals at my own home.

I have had cats all my life and more recently have worked as a dog walker and always get on well with both. I want to make sure your pets are comfortable and happy while you are out and about! I have experience with home visits, house sitting and have volunteered at the SPCA in the animal recovery centre so should be prepared for whatever your animal care needs are. I also have experience with handling, feeding, and general care of rodents through my studies at university.

I am reliable and very organised and always aim to put the needs of the customer/client first so will definitely be a pet sitter you can trust.

I have also been acknowledged by several people that I am a great animal portrait photographer, and also like to draw and paint, so I can do portraits of your pet(s) in numerous ways if that's something you're looking for!

Looking forward to hearing from you :)
