Name of sitter: Prashanthi M

Experience with animals and own pets

I genuinely adore animals, especially dogs. I also enjoy looking after kitty cats.

Let me introduce you to my animal children: Paddington Bear is a German Sheppard cross Rottweiler. When my dad first saw him, he was a puppy with a broken leg digging thorough a bin looking for food. Since then, I believe it’s best to adopt rather than shop - there are so many wonderful animals desperately in need of rescuing!

We got my second doggie from FORA; her name is Speckles.

They both love car rides to the park, and running around in its large spaces.

I adore cats as well; however, I unfortunately have none of my own as my mom is allergic.

I have house sat professionally in the past, as well as for friends and family. I have also done multiple visits to homes to look after their babies. I do believe that this job suits my personality and lifestyle very well as I will have a quiet environment to get my work done, while spending time with some wonderful furry creatures (or not so furry – that’s also okay).
