About Meriam

Hi, and welcome to my page!

My name is Meriam van Os and I'm a graduate student at the University of Otago. I am originally from the Netherlands where I grew up in a small rural village with lots of animals around me (cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens). So it's probably no surprise I'm an animal lover by heart!

I've done pet sitting via Pawshake in Palmerston North. I also volunteered at the SPCA for about a year, where I mainly worked with cats. Work included socialising of the cats and cleaning their living areas and cages. I also walked the dogs. Additionally, I interned at Wildbase (Massey University) where I learned a lot about NZ's wildlife, which inspired me to start doing animal and wildlife photography! You can see some of my photo's in my gallery.

My partner and I live in a small rental in St. Clair, so I won't have space to board animals at this stage unfortunately. But I'm more than happy to come over to feed, walk and cuddle your animals! I'll make sure they get enough attention. ;)

So, if your looking for someone to take care of your pets please get in touch. As a student I am flexible in managing my own time and to take care of your fur babies! All animal inquires are welcome. :)

Cheers, and hope to see you and your friend(s) soon!

Meriam was a fantastic cat sitter for us! So kind and punctual. She sent us sweet updates about our cat that made us feel like she was happy and well cared for. Meriam was genuinely kind and it showed immediately! Our cat was happy and well loved when we returned and she even provided small touches like a clean water bowl and a little tidying up.

I would give 6 stars ⭐ if could!!

Meriam was simply fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to trust her again with our home and pets while we’re away.
