StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Mia B" and simply click here to tell us more about your pets and when you will need a sitter. StudentCo will let you know if this pet sitter is available (if not, you will be introduced to another, equally awesome, team member).

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 have grown up with all sorts of animals around me as my Dad is a veterinarian, but at the moment we share out home with Mia and Cleo the cats, Mily the dog and a Budgie (all of them adopted/rescued). I love them to bits!

I have done community projects at zoos and animal shelters and have spent my vacations volunteering at my dad's veterinary clinic.
