Experience with animals and own pets

I love animals and am always at my happiest when I’m around them, whether it is playing with a dog or snuggling next to a cat.

We have two Beagles, Bruno and Misha, who I look after with the help of my two younger brothers. They are very loving and enjoy laying with me while I read a book. I also enjoy taking them out for walks around the block.

I have also adopted my boyfriend's pets as my own. When him and his family go away, I take care of the two German Shepherds, Zeus and Zara, the two Siamese cats, Zoo and Zazu and the cockatoo Zack. I love cuddling on the couch with Zeus, the gorgeous German Shepherd, and Zoo the cat is the best study buddy! Growing up, I also looked after our 2 budgies, Flo and Sky.

Additional Comments:

Bianca is highly recommended.

Such a lovely person and my pets loved her (they don't just get on with anyone being spaniels).

My house was left neat and tidy and upon my return my dogs were happy to see me but not depressed.

They did not constantly seek love and attention upon my return which means that they got more than enough in my absence.

Thank you Bianca, I will definitely specifically request you when I use this service again.

Additional Comments:

A bit young and not really a fit for what we needed, which was someone around the house when possible.

Didn't put certain items back where she found them, and left some of her own. She'll be fine, but I think this was bit overwhelming for her as a new sitter.

Note from StudentCo: The above feedback was discussed with Carli - thanks so much for helping us improve!

Additional Comments: My cat demonstrated strange behaviour in a certain sense when I came back. She had started to eat the silicon sand in her litter box (!) and she didn't sleep in the house the first evening when I was back. I don't think it's because of anything that Bianca did - I think Witkat was angry with me for leaving her alone and asking someone whom she didn't know well to care of her. However, I'm happy with Bianca's services! She did her best. :-)
