About Ruby

  • ABOUT ME:
  • I am a neuroscientist and study human brain and mental health (32 years old, female, she/her). I live in Queenstown and it's quite pet-friendly. Fun fact: almost all my colleagues are cat owners. There is no doubt that these little amazing creatures have changed our lives dramatically. 

    I have two cats and they are both female. My first cat (ragdoll. I got her from playground ragdoll) has been with me for more than 5 years. Around 2 years ago I adopted my second cat (Siamese?) from Mrs Wong's shelter. These two ladies have brought me so much joy and fun. I also had a dog before until I broke up and my ex took the dog. 

    Why pet sitter? It's hard to find a pet sitter to take care of my own cats when l have to leave SG for business trips. My friend recommended me this platform and I am thinking of being a cat sitter myself so that I can probably also help other owners while finding myself a cat sitter. In the meantime maybe can also get some "treat money" for my cats lol. It's also heartbreaking when I lost the dog I have loved so much and I think being a pet sitter can be a mental therapy journey.

    • ABOUT MY SERVICES:
    • 1. I am usually available at 8am-9am and evening after 6:00pm in weekdays. I am quite flexible during weekends. 

      2. I can only offer normal dog walking and cat feeding/litter cleaning. 

      3. Home visits: I will stay with pets for 20min. The owner can request longer if needed but no more than 40min. I can water plants and bring in mail. I will send videos and photos at each visit. Video chat is possible if it's needed.

      4. Dog walking: I walk dog usually for 30 min in the morning. For an evening walk it can be 45min. Usually, I walk the dog around the landed house area in queenstown. It's quiet and private. There is a non-official dog park next to Queen's Peak condo, however, the dogs play quite rough there. So it depends on the owners' request if they would want to do a dog walk in the dog park. It would be best if owners can show me detailed instructions for the walking routine.

      5. I do not offer house sitting.

      6. For cat feeding. My first cat eats raw food but my second cat doesn't know how to chew raw meat. So I feed both raw and dry food. I also feed them freeze-dried food (Primal/SC etc). 

      7. I would prefer the owner to leave detailed instructions.

      8. I will come and collect the keys before the first day. I will walk through the instructions with the owners beforehand. If it's not possible a video chat would also work. The owners can decide if they prefer me to leave the keys at home on the last day or drop them in the mailbox.

      Ruby was the perfect cat sitter for our furbaby - Tuxie. Punctual, professional and very responsive, she took care of all our concerns while we were away. She also introduced a new toy to Tuxie and we will definitely reach out to her again when we travel. Thanks Ruby !
