Carer with a ❤

Office worker

Responsible carer/sitter with a ❤. I have grown up with pets ranging from dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, fishes, and even a snake!

Since moving to Aotearoa New Zealand, having a pet is not an option for me so I have been housesitting/pet-sitting for my friends.

I enjoy the company of animals and pretty easy-going and low maintenance. I am independent, caring, and would treat animals with the love and care that they deserve,

Having travelled extensively and staying at different homes, I treat your home with respect and maintain it clean and tidy.

I am flexible with arrangements and happy to talk prior to the actual date of housesitting/pet-sitting.

As always we were delighted with the care of our pet and home by Ken, who goes above and beyond! Thank you Ken.

Wow Ken was amazing, fantastic communication and we knew our cat and house were getting looked after. When we got home we could not believe how the house looked, we really appreciated how much Ken put into looking after our cat and house. Thanks Ken !!!

Another great experience with Ken caring for our house, our precious cat Coco and our garden, which meant watering and picking veges and fruit. He is so attentive, responsive and caring we feel so grateful that he and Coco adore eachother and that he has been able to sit for us, now for the third time.

We just love having Ken look after our house and especially our precious cat Coco. This was his second sit for us. He is so attentive and caring, and a great communicator. This time there was picking and watering to do in the garden, which he also did with care and attention. He is just the best!

Ken is a first-rate pet and house sitter! I can’t give him enough stars. - amazing with cats, our cats adored him, and had tonnes of attention and hugs - his communication is excellent, nothing seems to ruffle him, he is always courteous and pleasant to deal with and sends just enough updates. - he left our home cleaner and tidier than when we left (washed all the linen, cleaned and vacuumed - even emptied litter tray without us asking!) All of the above meant we could relax and enjoy our ... MORE

Ken is an absolute delight. He looked beautifully after the house, the plants and truely enjoyed looking after our cat and chicken. Without mentioning the communication which was perfect. We highly recommend Ken and will definitely use his service again.
LAURENCE (Birkdale North Island, Dec 2023 - 3 weeks)
Ken was just fantastic! He kept in touch and was quick to respond to us, sending photos where helpful and to show us how much our precious Coco was enjoying his company. The house was beautifully clean and tidy when we returned. Ken has a real feel for visual presentation and an eye for detail. The personal touches were much appreciated.

Our second time having Ken to sit for us and to care for our cat, and we weren't disappointed. Ken ticks all the boxes for keeping the house clean and tidy and minding our cat, giving her plenty of attention. Very happy and confident to use him in the future!

We are so grateful for the care that Ken took of our two cats while we were away. He was great at communicating before, during and after the housesit, From the pictures that he sent to us it was bvious that the cats were very settled and happy. Even our very timid Romeo was happy to be his friend. He left our house in immaculate order - yes tidier than we left :). A nice touch of leaving milk and bread - so nice after a very long flight. So grateful for Ken and the care he took of our ... MORE

We are very happy with having Ken house sit for us and our cat obviously agrees! She is generally wary of strangers but has warmed to Ken very quickly - so much so, that we think Ken is a cat whisperer :) Ken is easy to communicate with and we loved it when he updated us with pics of Phoebe. It was such a blessing to return home and find it well cared for and clean, and a very contented cat. Thank you Ken! We are looking forward to having you house sit for us again.

Ken you are just so wonderful! Thank you for taking great care of the house and pets. Regular photo updates came just when I was starting to miss them <3. And clean sheets on the bed after a 17 hour flight was deeply appreciated. I can't thank you enough. Both sets of parents brought us home from the airport and were deeply impressed with how tidy and clean the house was, plus the thoughtful little touches like the welcome home note, that they also want to secure you for future sits! Haha they ... MORE
TAMBA (Papatoetoe North Island, Aug 2023 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Ken is an excellent communicator. He sent us regular updates and numerous photos of our Ginger cat which was very reassuring. Ken is a tidy house sitter and made sure our home was clean upon our return. I highly recommend Ken for future house sitting and cat care!
HOLLY (Thames North Island, Aug 2023 - 1 week 1 night)
Ken was a pleasure to have staying in our house with our cat, Toffee. He was great with communicating, sending us updates and regular pictures. This was our first time having a housesitter and I have never felt more comfortable with a stranger in my house! :) The house was immaculate on our return and I'm sure our cat is waiting for him to come back for some snuggles! Thanks again Ken.
SARAH (Brookfield North Island, Jul 2023 - 3 weeks)
Five stars is not enough for Ken. He is a the very best house sitter you could possibly have and we have already asked him to return sit for us at a future date. Coming home to the cleanest, tidiest house was wonderful and we cannot thank him enough for his wonderful care of Nudge who is definitely missing him. Thanks again Ken
LYNNE (Waihi Town North Island, Jun 2023 - 4 weeks)
Ken was amazing. He was so good with our pets and kept the house looking amazing. He kept in contact and was very helpful. I would highly recommend Ken as a house/pet sitter.
ANTHONY (Sandringham , Jun 2023 - 6 days)
Absolute best house sitter ever The place was tidier than when I left - so pristine! And the care he took of my 2 kitties was amazing! He sent pictures every day and you could tell how much he cared about them One of them had a little accident and needed a wash which he was amazing about - and she forgave him very quickly too I think Piglet the cat is already missing him so much Definitely my first choice for future house sits
CHARLOTTE (Remuera North Island, May 2023 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Ken left the house wonderfully clean and tidy. Bingo was clearly well looked after and I loved the photo updates from Ken and Bingo. Would recommend Ken highly.

Garden Maintenance

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
