Hallo! I am Helmien, a 40 year old stay at home mom. I moved here from South Africa in 2019 with my husband and our son. My son is in school, so I have lots of free time.I am a reliable, animal loving person who will provide endless love as a petsitter.
We have 2 cats, Meowmin who is 12 years old and Moses (Mo) who is 5. We rescued Mo from Egypt in 2019. We also now have a labradoodle called Trompie. I grew up with cats and dogs and various other animals. I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t some kind of pet in the house. I am absolutely crazy about animals and will always go the extra mile for my (or your) fur babies.
All animals differ in the type of care they need and it is important to understand their unique personalities. I will treat them as if they were my own and I will make sure they have enough play time and get plenty of love.
I'm able to give medication (pills or liquids). Photos, videos and daily updates will always be available so that you can connect with them while you are away. If there is something else you would like me to help with just let me know. (pick up mail, watering plants, etc)
Looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Helmien was wonderful with our cat Toothless. He received all the cuddles and attention he required and was a happy and healthy cat when we returned home.
She was very accommodating to all our requests and concerns.
We were kept up to date daily on his wellbeing via photos and text messages from her.
This gave us a lot of piece of mind during our vacation!
Really happy with and thankful for Helmien.
She also took care of our houseplants, which was a very sweet extra service.
Can highly recommend her to anyone!
Available and reliable. I will call her again!
