Name of sitter: Somari V

Area: Pretoria (Waterkloof Ridge)

Note: Somari happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.

Course of study: Somatology

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: June 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I share my life with 4 fur children: Peanut the Pug, Jessica the Pomerian, Charlie the Scottish Terrier and Balto the Border Collie.

I love my animals with all my heart and see and treat them as my furry children. We love playing, snuggling and having dIscussions (my dogs love to make noises so I usually pretend we are having a serious dIscussion).

I regulary take care of my siblings' pets and also the pets and houses of my friends when they go away.

I am often a part of Wollies Animal Project's events for their animals where you can take the dogs for walks and go and give the cats love.
