Name of sitter: Janeska V

Area: Pretoria (Newlands) and Krugersdorp (Kenmare)

Note: Janeska happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.

Course of study: BSc (Biochemistry and Genetics)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2016

Experience with animals and own pets

I adore animals!

I grew up with cats, dogs and birds. Our current family members are:

  • Socks the Siamese - my mom's favourite and the queen of the household
  • Klokkie/Babatjie - my beautiful Tabby cat

  • Pixie cat - the wild child
  • Zwe-zwe the Bull Mastiff, who just loves walking with me and protecting me
  • Vlooi the Jack Russell Terrier who thinks he's biggest of them all
  • Boelie the Ridgeback cross - who most certainly lives up to his name!
  • Roxy the purebred Boerboel, who is basically an overgrown puppy who thinks that she is a lap dog.
  • All our animals except for Roxy are either SPCA or FORA rescued animals, or pets whose owners couldn't look after them anymore.

    I also had a blue Ringneck named Trinity who decided I was her mate and regularly laid eggs (that would sadly never hatch) for me!

    I am currently rehabilitating two small tortoises named Franklin and Squirt who were attacked by dogs. Once they are both healthy and able to feed independently again, I hope to set them free in a tortoise sanctuary.

    I have pet sitting experience looking after a pug named Judy who has epilepsy, a Laborador named Limerick and two cats, Snowy and Primmi.

    M. Archer - pet sitting

    It was our absolute pleasure having Janeska house/pet sit for us over the December period!

    We have two cats and two dogs and one of the dogs suffers from epilepsy – the animals were very comfortable with Janeska and she abided to all our house and pet requirements – feeding and walking the dogs daily, giving our one dog her medication twice daily, feeding and loving the cats and making herself feel at home.

    Janeska kept the house clean and tidy (which wasn’t expected as our main concern was our fur faced family members) and she kept us updated on our pets regularly.

    I would highly recommend Janeska if you are looking for an exceptional, trustworthy, honest, warm and friendly house/pet sitter – we will definitely make use of her services again!

    Janeska was such a star with her first stay-over at our house.

    Additional Comments:

    Janeska was wonderful as usual.

    She updated us daily and our pets appeared happy and relaxed on the photos she sent us and that’s also how we found them when we returned to a perfectly clean and neat home.

    We loved her feedback and interpretation of each of the furkids’ behavior while she was looking after them.

    And just the fact that our very shy cat Jack trusts her enough to pet him and stand with him while he eats, is testament to how much our furkids have accepted her as ‘part of the family’.

    We consider ourselves lucky to have Janeska as a petsitter – not only for the daily looking after our pets, but also the love and individual attention she gives to them, and we’re truly thankful for a wonderful, professional service provided by StudentCo.
