About Tessa

Hello!

My name is Tessa. I am a caring and compassionate 28 year old with a love for all animals! Thank you for

considering me as your pet and/or home sitter.

I have 11 years experience working and volunteering in a shelter with all types of animals including wildlife, small animals, cats and dogs. I have worked with and have fostered animals that come from a variety of backgrounds and have worked with animals ranging from young orphans to seniors. I am very experienced with shy/fearful cats and am familiar with dog behaviours such as fearful dogs and dogs with handling sensitivities. I can administer oral, topical and injectable medications and I am knowledgable about different medical conditions. I have attended many seminars/conferences on animal care.

I have 5 pets of my own—3 dogs and 2 cats. My youngest is a 5 month old Chihuahua that I recently completed puppy kindergarten with! My Australian Cattle Dog is reactive on leash, so I understand how to work with this type of behaviour. I understand how difficult it can be to leave your animals under someone else’s care and can assure you I will treat them as if they were my own.

I promise to provide only the best care and hope that you will choose me to care for your furry friends!

Services include:

•For cats: 30 minute visit to feed, scoop litter boxes, administer medication (if required) and play time. *available from 6 am to 7 am and/or after 4:30 pm Monday to Saturday (more availability every second weekend when I am off for 3 days) and available all day Sunday*

•For dogs: 30 minute visit to feed, walk, playtime and administer medication (if required)

*available from 6 am to 7 am and/or after 4:30 pm Monday to Saturday (more availability every second weekend when I am off for 3 days) and available all day Sunday*

Tessa looked after my cat, Loki, over the holidays and did a fantastic job. Loki was well fed, his litter box was dealt with and I received an update with photos on every visit. I will definitely be booking Tessa next time I go away!

I had a wonderful experience with Tessa. I needed someone to feed my cats twice a day over the Christmas holidays and she was very accommodating. Tessa came by twice a day, including Christmas eve and Christmas day, sent me photos of my cats from every visit, made sure they were well fed, and kept the litter area very clean. I highly recommend Tessa for any of your pet sitting needs.
