About Margaret

Hi my name is Margaret 🐾

I have a lot of experience with mice, rats, hamsters, birds, rabbits, dogs, and cats. My family and I are a family of animal lovers that includes two vegetarians and one vegan. We lived in Singapore for 8 years where we adopted 2 dogs and 4 cats and many small animals like mice and rats along the way. I have used a force free training method with our dogs via a certified dog trainer in Singapore, and had many pet sitting jobs there -mainly visiting indoor cats. We have also previously volunteered for the SPCA overseas. I have needed petsitters before and know the hassles.This is why it is with confidence I can say that I will care for your pets as if they were my own.

Generally one home visit is between 45mins to an hour .In that time I will feed your pet ,clean their litter tray and play with them if they are interested Sometimes they just want the company too

Dog walks are also generally 45 mins to an hour

** I currently am at my maximum for Tuesdays and Thursday’s for dog walking however can do Monday,Wednesday and Fridays on a casual basis **

If there are some jobs around the house that need to be done I can accommodate for these, such as taking in the mail . I have a car if your pet needs to be transported to the vet or elsewhere. Our cats are all indoor cats however one does walk outside on a lead so if you require cat walking I can do that too! No in home boarding available but I can visit your pets once or twice a day. I can travel up to 10km from our residence.

Another great month of dog walking! Margaret is so flexible and able to help us out, and we can trust she will look after our dog well. Our dog is so calm and happy on Margaret days!

Margaret came in to feed our cat Reid for a few days over Easter. She was easy to contact and really quick to respond to any messages. As well as feeding him, Margaret spent up to an hour playing and just hanging out with him, which he would have loved. She also sent us a few photos of him each day. I would happily use Margaret again next time we go away.
