Anthea took on sitting for our 8 mo old lab in training & 2 cats in our home. It was no small undertaking but she handled it well including attending to things that came up in the household. She responded quickly to emails and provided updates throughout the week. I also appreciated her insight and helpful advice.

Anthea is a cat whisper. My kitten took to her immediately and my anxiety ridden kitty stayed mellow and calm during the whole stay. She is dedicated to her charges and communicates in detail and quickly. Will leave my two fur babies with her anytime.

About Anthea

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check


I have many years' experience house/pet-sitting dogs, cats, birds and a gecko -- even looking after the home while it was under renovation -- as well as caring for the garden. I have also helped raise various farm birds: ducks, geese, chickens, pheasants, and peacocks. I am comfortable pilling dogs and cats, giving other medication, clipping toenails, brushing, bathing. Have given subcutaneous injections to cats. No problem with the dogs sleeping on the bed with me.
