About Stephen

I am a mid-50's man living on the North Shore. I have always been an animal person. Dogs, cats, horses, birds, mice - you name it. Love them all. I have been called a whisperer by several people. I have kept cats, dogs, horses and mice over the years so I am intimately familiar with the care of all animals. I can offer some basic dog obedience as well. I am extremely flexible with my time as I am self employed.

I can be with your pet(s) from 30 minutes to however long you want. I am happy to cuddle with your pets, walk them, brush them, bathe them and if necessary provide medication (specific instructions required as well as any notes regarding how they are with being dosed). Or if it's just about having someone in the house so the animals don't get lonely that's fine as well. Unfortunately as much as I would like to I can't take animals into my home. I have a police clearance and a Class 5 license. Additionally, I am a very skilled home handyman as I had my own woodworking shop when I lived in Australia. I can change lightbulbs, do basic electrical and plumbing repairs, carpentry, picture hanging and more. Obviously these would attract a further fee which can be discussed.

I look forward to being of service to you and having the pleasure of caring for your pets.

Stephen was very engaging from the start. He responded quickly and my cat instantly bonded with him. Upon my return Stephen followed up with me asked about my cat. Stephen is my go-to cat sitter hereon.

Stephen looked after my cat Kevin for the last 5 days and both Kevin and I were thrilled. Lots of updates on how Kevin was doing, many happy pictures of my cat. So happy to have found Stephen! Highly recommend, 5 star top drawer.
