My name is Tamara and I love animalsssss! I grew up with pets, so I've had dogs, hedgehogs, lizards, fish, and cats (of course)! I currently have one cat, she’s a senior but still my little baby and I love her with all my heart. I am (was) a zoology major, I completed a honours program while living in South Africa with black rhinos and lions. I have also had the fortunate opportunity to volunteer at a vet clinic, and numerous wildlife sanctuaries across the globe (South Africa, Zimbabwe, Bolivia, Peru), so when I say I have dedicated my life to animals, I genuinely mean it. I am responsible, caring, I will listen and follow any and all instructions given to me to ensure the safety and quality care of your pets!
During visits, I will clean the litter box, change water and replenish food and give lots of head scratches and/or belly rubs. I will treat your animals like my own and give you plenty of updates (pictures and videos, any amusing stories). I have a car to get to and from locations, and willing to take dogs on more exciting walks in parks with open spaces. I am comfortable giving medication when it is required, and I am a professional poop and vomit cleaner (if need be, hopefully not haha). I really just love animals and am looking to earn some extra income while spending time with creatures whom I adore. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! My rates are reflective of: • I stay for at least an hour on my home visits to play and hang out with your pet • I walk for an hour with your dog • 10 KM radius of my location where some type of free parking is available
This is the second time we booked with Tamara to take care of our two cats. She is super friendly and gave us updates on how things were going at home. Highly recommended!
Tamara was able to help me out when I had a short-notice cancellation and no other options for catsitting. Zen seemed happy with her and we got cute pictures of him and got to see he's okay. Great and quick communication, I felt comfortable with the whole process and would recommend Tamara to anyone else reading this.
Degree in zoology and relevant volunteer experience.
