Experience with animals and own pets

Where to start...

I love animals! Since I was a child, I've had a variety of different pets. My first pet was a dog and it then quickly escalated to bunnies, birds, tortoises and a hedgehog. I currently have two dogs and they are my life! I start and end my day with them.

Their favourite parts of the day are when I come home from varsity, when I give them treats and when we go for a walk. They also love to snuggle up at night, especially when it's a bit colder outside.

I often take care of friends and families' pets and I try to make them feel less upset about their owners being away by giving them special attention.

The way I care and love for my pets is generally how I am towards any other animal. I'm looking forward to meeting new animals, because to me it's an opportunity to make new friends.

Nelodi has been our house-sitter for many years. She loves my animals very much and of course they are always excited to see her. She is very punctual with feeding our animals and will happily stay with them if thunderstorms break out. I can absolutely recommend her.

Additional notes:

Nelodi is a kind, responsible person. She phones us twice a week if we go on long trips. She takes action out of her own accord if she can't contact us immediately. My furry babies are getting older and so she gives them their meds and supplements diligently. She's our only choice.

Nelodi and my stepson used to date while at school. Although they broke up many years ago, Nelodi kept contact with us, especially with my wife. She has been pet-sitting our pets (we used to have 4 dogs and 2 cats, but are now down to 2 dogs and 1 cat) for many years. She is hard-working, dedicated, trustworthy and loves pets. Our pets always greet her eagerly whenever she visits.

Additional notes:

I am a zoologist and thus know something about animals. You can't go wrong with Nelodi as a pet sitter.
