About Telma

Hi! My name is Telma. I'm a full-time mum and a long life animal lover. I grew up surrounded by cats and dogs as my mother is crazy about them, so I guess I inhereted her passion for pets in general. I began to volunteer at animal shelters when I was a teenager, and since then I've been always involved in animal rescue and care, supporting animal welfare associations in my country, in India (caregiver of a stray dog colony for 3 years, providing food daily and vet care with the help of a local pet doctor) and in New Zealand (SPCA guardian for the last 6 years). Before leaving my country, I also fostered cats to help the animal shelters I volunteered at to rescue and have room for more cats.

I love cats and dogs equally, but I must confess that I am a devoted fan of greyhounds and galgos. Sadly, these sweet, loyal and affectionate dogs are probably the most abused dogs worldwide.

I brought my two adopted cats into NZ when we moved to Auckland due to my husband's job more than 6 years ago. One of them, Leo, sadly passed away a year after, and Bowie, my 18 y.o. fur buddy

has a chronic kidney disease (stage 3) that requires medication and a special diet, so I know how to give both oral and injected medication.

Every year my family and I go back to my country to see relatives and friends, and to me, based on my personal experience, pet sitting is by far the best option when it comes to cats. So I do know the importance of finding the right person to look after our

four legged family members.

In summary, I'm a honest and reliable person and I

would love to look after your furry friend. I am

available for sitting, feeding, cleaning the litter box, walking, or simply accompanying your pet.

I would highly recommend Telma for your dog walking or cat sitting needs. She's very easy to work with, conscientious to our dogs needs (our doggo is very nervous around new people) and Nala has really enjoyed her first few walks with her. The photo updates and messages to let us know when she arrived and left were also very helpful.

Telma has been amazing with our two rescue cats. Rescues can be harder to break the ice with at the beginning, but it didn’t take her. Daily photos of our fur babies have been well appreciated 😊
