About Ellen

Hi,

My name is Ellen and I'm a 30year old animal lover. I grew up on a farm in the Wairarapa with cows, sheep, cats and dogs. I have always loved animals, I used to foster kittens and cats for the local pound when they were sick, needed socialisation or when the babies needed to gain weight before they could be adopted. I volunteer for a local cat shelter at the moment where I help find forever homes for the cats and kittens.

I have 2 cats of my own, Tommy and Ollie. When we go away we were putting them in a cattery which they didn't seem to mind as kittens but as they got older they started coming home quite stressed which was making me anxious as well. This led me to looking into having someone come and feed them at home where they can stay in their comfort zone while having their needs taken care of. Knowing that my babies are safe and happy at home getting lots of love from a sitter means that I can relax a lot more on holiday.

I offer either; 1x 30min house visit a day or 2x 30min house visits are day. I will come to your home, feed your animals, clean up any messes, administer any medications and give them lots of pats and cuddles if they'd like some. During this time I will send you a message to let you know how they are going and send you a photo. I can also bring in your mail and water your plants/ any other ad hoc jobs that we can discuss.

You can go on your trip with peace of mind that your pet is happy and is being well taken care of.

Ellen looked after my two boys (cats) perfectly. Ellen gave photo updates every time she visited and the boys seemed very comfortable with her. Thank you so much for taking such great care of them, will definitely reach out again in the future.

Ellen was fantastic! It gave us great confidence while we were away to know she was looking after our pets. Thanks Ellen, for helping us have a pet-worry free holiday.
