About Denise

Hi there,

I am Denise and I am a caring animal lover. I live in Matua and have been a pet minder for nearly two years.

I offer services in Matua and the surrounding suburbs eg Otumoetai, Bellevue. I grew up with lots of pets and dogs have always been part of my life, alongside rabbits, guinea pigs,budgies and even a tortoise.

Our labradoodle Charley is nearly 13 but is still active and playful.

I am

able to visit your pet(s) at your home once or twice daily as required. This can include providing food/water, playtime or a dog walk. I am able to feed and water other small pets if requested or collect post. I am

reliable and

will dedicate time getting to know your pet and meeting their needs.

I always saw myself as a dog person but three years ago my daughter persauded us to foster kittens for the SPCA over the busy Christmas period. Our first kitten had cat flu which deteriorated into pneumonia which meant a trip to the vet on Christmas day.

With lots of care the kitten pulled though and we fostered many kittens over three years which was great fun. Eventually one kitten Gatsby chose us as his family and we went on to adopt him.

A few months later we adopted another rescued kitten George and they are the best of friends.

I have lived in Matua for 18 months.

I live with my husband and my son and daughter are away at university. I have worked as a community worker for many years (eg Barnardos and Plunket) but have now reduced my hours of work which means I have flexible availability.

I drive and have a car.

Denise looked after our cat Tams for two weeks over the Christmas/New Year break. She did such a great job and managed to befriend a very timid animal who usually hides from visitors. Denise sent daily texts and photos and we can’t recommend her highly enough. We would definitely book her again. Thank you Denise!

Terrance is an elderly cat and loves that he can stay at home and be minded by Denise when I am away. She keeps me posted on how he is doing and also waters my outdoor pots.

I would definitely recommend Denise to look after your cat.
