More InformationHello! My name is AJ and I'm new to Mindahome but have experience with house and pet sitting back home in New Zealand which I can provide references for 🙂
About me 👩
I'm a 35 year old, single, mature, non-smoking, clean and tidy experienced house sitter who loves exploring, walking/hiking, reading, travelling, meeting new people, and caring for animals of all shapes and sizes. A few years ago I volunteered at wildlife rescue centre in Thailand which was an amazing experience and one I'd love to repeat! I'm currently between jobs right now but will be getting back into the work force soon as a full-time professional in a business support related role based in central London.
Why I want to house sit 🏠
I've lived in London for almost 2 years now (I'm here on a UK passport) and have decided that I'd love to get back into house/pet sitting as I really enjoyed doing it back home and it will be such a great way for me to experience/explore other parts of London whilst caring for other people's loved pets and homes. Another reason is because I genuinely miss having animals around! I have two adorable 10 year old cats (Bella & Storm) back home in NZ who I adopted as kittens and dearly miss (my parents are taking excellent care of their "grandkitties" though) plus had different types of pets growing up.
My experience 🐱🐶
I grew up in a household with much loved pets such as cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs. We also had a pet rat for a while (until he sadly died) that we rescued from a neighbour. I've cared for numerous types of animals during my life so far, and between 2014 to 2017, I completed 4 house and pet sitting assignments in Nelson, NZ (where I lived for 2 years) and Christchurch, NZ (where I'm from), ranging from 2 weeks to 4 months in duration. During these house and pet sitting assignments I looked after/cared for the owners' cats, dogs, chickens, sheep/lambs, homes and gardens. I really enjoyed each assignment as the homeowners were lovely, their homes were great and I loved getting to know their pets. I took pride in being able to give the owners the security of having someone trustworthy minding their pets and home, as well as keeping the place clean and tidy, and will continue to do so here in the UK.
As a side note, I recently temporarily stayed with a friend in Fulham, London, and while there, I helped to look after her elderly inside cat which involved tasks like giving him medication, cleaning the litter box and supervising him when outside.
Should you consider me to look after your home and pet/s, then I am happy to meet with you face to face or over a video call so that we can get to know each other a bit before making a decision 🙂
