The next step is the meet-and-greet. This is an informal meeting at your home so you (and your pets!) can get to know a potential sitter. You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking. The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.

Experience with animals and own pets

I am lucky enough to own five amazing pets. I have two dogs – a Golden Retriever called Tanzanite and a little Jack Russell called Tiggy. I also have three cats – two are long haired cats called Pumpkin and Jigsaw and the other one is a small short hair called Tinkerbell. They each have their own amazing personalities, and to come home to such vibrant and loving animals is the biggest blessing I could ask for!

All three cats and Tiggy are rescues, and I really believe in adoption. Some of the most amazing animals are already out there, just waiting to be loved. I have had experience in volunteering at Ark Animals, as well as fostering two puppies. I have also volunteered at Pretoria Zoo, where I handled and fed baby flamingos whose parents had abandoned them.

I truly believe that animals are the biggest joy creators in the world, and to have one is to have happiness in a bundle of fur!
