About Pippa

About me

Hi, I'm Pippa. I live in a rural area, 20kms out of Hamilton. My family of me, my husband and two children live on a lifestyle block of 2 acres, with sheeps, chickens, and two cats.

I have a variety of side jobs, rather than one main full time job. So I have time to visit your pets in their own home (which I think many pets and their owners prefer, instead of taking them to boarding catteries/kennels).

My pet sitting experience

I love animals, and love being able to care for them when their owners need a hand.

I have been pet sitting for friends and neighbours for the last 3 years now. I can do house visits to feed, pet, and clean up after your pets.

Typically, I spend 15-20 minutes at the pet's house, which includes but is not limited to:

  • feeding them,
  • checking their water is clean and fresh,
  • petting, playing and chatting to them,

  • any cleaning of litter trays, cages, etc.
  • administering any tablets (I have experience of giving my cats tablets when they needed medication).
  • Over the years, I have cared for cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, and sheep. We have hand reared lambs, so I can do bottle feeding if you need me to.

    I can walk dogs too.

    I will be able to visit pets in their homes, my services do not include boarding pets at my own home.

    Owners like to be kept updated on their pet's wellbeing while they are away from each other, so I usually text and send photos of the pets to the owners. This reassures the owners and gives them peace of mind that their beloved pets are ok.
