Name of sitter: Jonathan C

Area: Randjiesfontein, Midrand

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

Course of study: BVSc - Veterinary Sciences

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I am a Veterinary Science student with a passion for animals, and love to interact with them and make certain their needs are met ‘to the tee’.

I also have extensive previous experience caring for my own pets, and most particularly for birds, which I have kept and bred since I was young, but also for dogs, cats, freshwater fish and reptiles, having looked after the pets of other residents in our neighborhood.

I am not scared to be put into new situations, and handle responsibility well. Dedication, integrity and reliability are values that I hold very closely, and will be manifest in my work.
