About Sarah

I am a middleaged women with two elderly cats. I've had Jessie(17 years) since she was 8 weeks old, and adopted Felix(17.5 years) about two years ago. Due to renal problems Jessie now requires me to give her subcutaneous fluids on a regular basis. Since getting Felix, I have fallen for the elderly cat, and would love to one day set up a retirement home for cats. Since coming to me, Felix has been diagonised with daibetes and requires twice daily Insulin injections. I enjoy the company of having cats around. I have tropical fish and I have also recently adopted Moby a red eared slider turtle and am enjoying learning about his needs and wants. I have also adopted a 12 year old named Missy, she's a bit of a naughty tortie.

Update: Felix and Jessie have both passed in the last year. But a young girl named TT has become a permanent fixture in my household.

I have also just adopted a tiny jack Russel girl called Jae Jae. Exciting times ahead.

I have years of experience working in the pet boarding industry and have been trained at CPIT. I have the national certificate in animal care. I have worked with not only cats and dogs, but also rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, birds, chickens, rats, mice and even an axalotole or two. I am trained and experienced in giving a wide range of medications to a variety of animals.

I volunteer for my local community patrol and as such have been police checked.

I am also on the leadership team for my local community hub.

I work in reception at my local veterinary clinic.

I can pop in on a daily basis, often at short notice. I can also do things like check mail, water plants, open/close curtains, put out bins etc

As well as my cat bag - which contains small toys, treats, cat nip etc, I also have a selection of toys that I can bring and sometimes leave to keep your cat entertained while you are away.

I live over in the east of Christchurch and would prefer to mind animals round east or south. But can travel if needed.

I also work till 2pm during the week, so most visits will be in the afternoon or early evening.

Send me an meet and greet enquiry and we can see if we can work something out.
