About Hayley

I have always had a cat for as long as I can remember and love them dearly. I found out about pet sitting recently and love the idea of meeting new cats (and people) while doing a valued service, while I earn some money to help support my artistic endeavours. I understand the idea that someone who really cares is looking after my furry family is a huge relief for people. 

Before covid lockdowns, I was volunteering at the Mangere SPCA cattery and so I have plenty of experience dealing with cats who are unfamiliar to me and looking after them. I would feed the cats, clean their area, help keep them cool in summer, or warm in winter, and of course give them plenty of snuggles and petting. I have a lot of experience in dealing with shy, skittish, and grumpy cats as well since SPCA sees all types come through before adoption. Furthermore, I have had at least one cat for the past 28 years. Only currently without one since my last two passed from old age, one who was a shy but loveable black cat and the other a silly and friendly ginger cat. 

I'm available to visit homes from 9:30am.

I am able to administer eye and ear medications as I have experience doing this with my own cats.

Also happy to water plants, bring in mail, and other daily upkeep tasks.


I no longer accept dog sitting requests.

Thank you!

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English & Italian
< 5 years of experience
Cleaning litter trays, cages, and the cats themselves if needed. Entertaining and socialising with the cats and kittens. Setting up toys, new living spaces, food and water. I am familiar with hostile cats, and would be allowed to get close to skittish cats after careful approaching and patience. I also have some experience with cats that would have to be in isolation and thus prevent spread of potential illnesses with the new cats that would come through the special office cages.
