My name is Sophie. I am originally from England but mostly lived in Australia before moving to New Zealand for work 10 years ago. I had intended to stay for two years but New Zealand has grown on me. Since moving here, I have been employed by the Department of Corrections as a psychologist. I am currently on 12 months leave this year to do some further studying and have the opportunity to get to know New Zealand better. During this time, I have been volunteering for the SPCA and have gained a certificate in animal care.
Given my current situation, I will have a lot of time to be able to care for and provide company for your pets. Growing up, we always had cats as pets, either rescued from hardship or they just wandered into our lives. I have had both dogs and cats as pets in my adult life and have done quite a bit of house sitting for friends with pets or looked after their animals in my own home while they were away. If I were to house sit for you, you can expect me to treat your home with respect and to look after your pets as you want them to be looked after and with a lot of love.
