My name is Kia-Mae and I've been pet-sitting for friends and family for years, I'd now like to take the opportunity to launch into the wider NZ! Being a rural lady, I've looked after cows, sheep, horses, chickens and goats as well as dogs and cats (and the occasional alphaca), as long as I know which feed is which I'm happy to look after any and all pets.
Animals deserve the calm environment of being at home when you go away, having a housesitter provides that for them and new places to visit for me. I work from home Mondays and Fridays so can offer 24hr care on these days (as long as you have wifi) and on the weekend, however, I work in Auckland Tuesday-Thursday and these need to be taken into account. I am happy to provide walks, medication and food where appropriate, difficult medication may incur a further charge. For horses, I do not ride others horses but am happy to groom/clean feet/clean stables as needed, again this can incur a further charge. All pets are treated with ample love and dedication to ensure that my stay keeps them calm and happy until you get home. When arranging pet-sitting, a initial meet/greet with you home is encouraged (free of charge) to ensure the pet is confortable with me around, I can get a sense of the care needed, on this visit I will confirm for you if any extra charges will be expected and you can confirm or deny your acceptance early so you can book someone else if needed.
When housesitting (and pet-sitting), I will be in the home all-day Friday-Monday and depending on location for Tuesday-Thursday as I work 9-4pm in Auckland City.

I do not offer board at my home.
I do not have a police clearance certificate as these are not available in NZ - see police website.
Pleased to be working with you, feel free to contact on mobile between 9am-5pm any day.
Kia-Mae was a great house sitter! Excellent communication, flexible and responsible. Could not ask for better, thank you!
Kia-Mae was very friendly and professional. We had communication every day which was great as we didn't need to worry, which is so nice when you are overseas. Also our house was left just as we left it. We would definitely recommend Kia-Mae.
