Name of sitter: Kiara L

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: December 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I have 2 dogs,2 birds and a foster dog.

They are all such amazing creatures and I love them all so much, I would be lost without them!

Smudge (5 years old) and Angel (8 years old) are my two babies - Smudge came from a squatter camp and Angel was a stray.

Oreo is my zebra finch and Tinkle is my dad’s cockatiel. Liquorice (12 years old) is my mom’s boss's dog who is too old to stay at her coffee shop, so he stays here.

I can definitely say that I love working with animals and love all animals - except spiders!
