About Monique

Due to work and volunteering I am unable to give dogs the extra attention they need and have  decided to focus on cats and small animals only.

Hello and thank you for considering me.

I'm a country girl at heart that grew up in the Waikato and feel at home in nature, surrounded by animals. For the last 5 years I have lived full time in my vehicle, a lifestyle I adore but sadly, I had to rehome my cat Boo, my dog Wolf, chickens and fish. I am permantly based in Nelson.

I love gardening and used to own a 110 year old house on a 1/4acre section with fish ponds and gardens in Balclutha.

I have spent most of my work life in retail, management and my last job was in a vet where I was responsible for animal care. I have completed a certificate in Small Animal Care.

I am currently volunteering two days at Natureland in Tahunanui and working two days at their second hand store New To You in Nelson.

I have housesat many times over the last 3 years and take great consideration care and thoughtfulness in every thing I do. I will regularly send you updates, completely respect your privacy and belongings and might even fill your pantry with yummy baking. I have had nothing but positive feedback.

You can rest assured that your home and animal friends will be loved and cared for as if they were my own. 

I would prefer off road parking as my vehicle is my house and everything I own is in there.

 Housesitting includes watering gardens and plants and but no lawn mowing. Mail will be brought in and your house left tidy and secure. Regular updates/videos and photos of your pets are sent via Whatsapp. I have my own WiFi, take 2 minute showers to conserve water and use minimal power. 

Daily pet feeding includes bringing in mail, security checks, watering plants and an update sent to you via Whatsapp. A minimum of 30 mins is spent providing company for your pet.

References (some in profile photo) and a police check are available.

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your pets.

Thankyou

MONIQUE Little

I hardly go away as I can't leave my 17-year-old "high maintenance" Burmese, but then I found Monique. Coco was at ease upon first meeting her, so I happily went away for a weekend, and came home to a beautiful flax and toi toi flower arrangement placed on our dining room table. Thank you Monique!

For five nights my dear old cat Franklin was uncooperative and rather than give up, Monique went out of her way and made incredible efforts to encourage him to be comfortable, whilst keeping me informed. I have nothing but praise for her and her respect for my boy and our home. There is no doubt that I would invite her to help me out again.
