About Yiwen

Hello! I am a dog lover and used to have a golden retriever named Lucie. She was well-loved and lived 13 good years, before passing away 4 years ago. Prior to Covid I have been petsitting for about 2 years, and meeting new furry friends has really helped bring back a spark to my life.

I currently only offer home sitting services (staying over at your home to care for your pet). Now that overseas travel is finally possible, I would love to help take care of your home and pets while you are away, and I'm comfortable with longer stays. Dogs and cats (all sizes and breeds) are welcome, but I'm happy to consider other pets too. I exercise quite a lot, so if your dog requires long walks or runs (or swimming at the beach!), it's no problem at all.

I currently work full time in the public sector, working from office 2 times a week and from home the rest of the week. Hence I am only able to accept pets who can be left alone during work hours (around 9am-6pm). I will be able to feed and bring your pet on walks twice a day - before and after work hours, and also any other times if working from home. I am glad to help collect your mail, water your plants and do other simple home chores!

As a former urban planner, home and pet sitting is also a great opportunity for me to live in and experience different neighbourhoods in Singapore. My only request is to be able to use your kitchen and oven because I'm an avid baker/cake decorator, and typically cook all my meals as well. Rest assured that your home and kitchen will be maintained in tip top condition! Looking forward to meeting you and your furry friend!

This was my first time engaging pet sitting service. I am a very private person,mildly OCD and do not like strangers coming to my house. Let alone stay there for a week! But, a friend (with 2 cats) recommended Yiwen and I decided to try. And I'm glad that I did.

We had a initial meet and greet session to get to know each other and for my 3 cats to "smell" her. This was also an orientation for her and it was nice as there was a chance to change my mind if I wasn't comfortable with her.

For starters, Yiwen was soft-spoken, gentle and had a pleasant personality. I felt at ease with her during our first meetup! Even my cats took to her presence well. Instructions were left for her and there were daily video/photo updates of my 3 cats and she was wonderful with them. 1 of my cat even managed to put on some weight!

If you are someone like me, I would recommend you to let Yiwen petsit. I would definitely engage her service again when I go on another holiday because I feel reassured with her.

This was Yiwen’s second time house sitting for us and our two cats. The cats are on a special diet with feedings three times a day - Yiwen was able to cater to all of that with no fuss. One of the cats has pica and will eat plastic/cloth/string if such items were left unattended - Yiwen made sure there was zero incidence of that. She also provided check ins through videos and photos, and the cats always looked very at ease with her. The house was very clean and neat when we came home after a long 16 night trip away. Thanks so much for being a great trusted sitter, Yiwen!
