Animal Healer and Communicator

40, Animal Communicator and Healer

38, Web Developer


We are Rebecca and James and we both live in Nelson.

We are available for short and long term pet sits. We are responsible, neat and tidy people.

We are both animal lovers who have had cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, and also have basic working experience with farm animals.

We recently lost our pets due to age and unfortunate circumstances, and we are not in a position to be full time guardians of our own pets. Yet we miss the love and affection from our furry friends.

Rebecca has owned her own pet sitting business for 3 years in the UK and now works as an Animal Healer and Communicator. She also has qualifications in dog health and welfare, dog psychology and basic dog training. She works from home, so will be home for the majority of the day to care for your loved ones.

James is a local self employed Web Developer and also has a part time job helping a friends family business until mid- October.

We will love your animals like our own, and are happy to send regular updates with photos of the fun we are having together.

We have our own reliable transport and support network in Nelson. We are healthy and active people who can exercise your animals daily if required.

Please feel free to ask us any questions.

It is with gratitude that we recommend Rebecca and James to anyone looking for quality ... MORE

Rebecca and James were great house-sitters, taking care of our cat Spiral...sending photos of him looking happy and content, and they left the house in perfect condition, clean and tidy. I would recommend them as they are lovely people and really care and communicate with animals.

This was our first time using Kiwi House Sitters and the experience was a breeze! Rebecca and James were the best house/pet sitters we could have wished for! They took great care of our cat Mia and our house, and we didn't have to worry about a thing as they kept up regular contact with us while we were away. Rebecca and James are very reliable, respectful, tidy, and we could tell Mia thoroughly enjoyed their company! We felt totally at ease leaving our pet and house in their capable hands, and ... MORE
