I'm Jeslyn, a content writer whose #1 reason for nearly being late for work is being distracted by community cats on the way in.
Growing up with a father who loved animals, our family has had several pets over the years, so I do have experience with dogs, especially medium to larger sized dogs (10-25kg). I used to own one extremely grumpy cat, and have fostered multiple pregnant/nursing cats and orphaned kittens in the past.
I am available at 7-8am in the mornings, and early evenings after 7pm for most weekdays. Most of my weekends will be available.
Dog walks are a default 1 hour, but of course can be shortened to cater to your pup's energy levels. If you'd like, I'd be happy to provide photo updates during the walk.
House visits are 30mins each time, with any required feeding, cleaning, and play session. Photo updates are a standard one photo and one short video per visit.
I also do overnight house sittings. I will be in your house with your pet between 7pm to 8am on the weekdays, and longer periods during the weekends.
I am comfortable with administering oral medication, ear treatment and giving baths, but not injectable medications. If you are away for extended periods, I can also water any plants to keep them alive until you get back!
For house sittings, I will also do some basic cleaning, like sweeping/vacuuming and mopping floors. If I sleep over in the bedrooms, bedsheets will be washed and changed before your return, to make sure you get to come home to a clean house.
If a stranger sleeping in your bed weirds you out a little, I will not take offence, and am ok to sleep on couches or bring my own futon.
Updates for house sitting are twice a day- one photo in the morning, and a video update at night. I can also do online video calls in any cases where you miss your pets extra hard during your time away.
Meet and greets are also standard for first time bookings, unless you deem it unnecessary.
I hope to meet your cats or dogs soon!
Do message me if you have any other enquiries!
We are very glad to have met Jeslyn! From the first time she came over to our home to meet us and the pets up to the time her stint ended, she has been communicative, solid, and reassuring. She sent us videos and photos of our pets during feeding times and gave us updates on them. Jeslyn gave us the peace of mind we needed, since we knew our pets were in good and caring hands, in order to enjoy our weekend away. Thank you so much Jeslyn!
We were really happy with Jeslyn. She was great with our dog Blackie who has an excitable/anxious peeing issue - that was our biggest concern. But everything went smoothly and Jeslyn provided regular updates which eased our concerns. She was also a great house guest and kept our home neat and tidy just as we left it. We definitely will rebook for future vacations knowing Blackie is in safe hands with Jeslyn. 👍🏻
