Experience with animals and own pets

I have lived around animals my entire life and I have a deep love for every animal on this planet big and small. I currently have 2 cats, Herbie and Fudge who I spend all my free time at home with. They are both Maine Coons, so I have a real soft spot for them, but to be honest I have a soft spot for all cats! I also have a leopard gecko her name is Bellatrix who is just as loved as the two kitties.

My favourite place to visit is the Kruger National park as we go there almost every holiday. I love meeting new animals and people and am always willing to take on a challenge.

Duncan made sure that he followed the schedule I provided, and our dog was in excellent spirits when we returned. I very highly recommend Duncan for any petsitting position.

I have known Duncan since he was about 12 years old. When I first met him, he was a young scout in 1st Randburg. Shortly afterwards I became a Scouter with the troop. Duncan grew up to be a very mature, dependable young man. He achieved his Springbok Award (highest award in scouting) which only about 1% of all scouts in SA achieve. Throughout his scouting career Duncan has spent time and effort teaching, developing and mentoring the younger scouts in the troop. Since turning 18 Duncan has become a Scouter where he continues to give his time and knowledge to the troop on a volunteer basis.

Additional notes: Duncan in an incredibly well-rounded young man. Fun loving and free spirited but serious and dependable when needed. I believe Duncan could achieve anything he set his mind to.
