Over our lifetimes we have both enjoyed the company of a diverse range of pets, from cats (domestic short-hairs, British short-hairs, Siamese, Burmese, Bengal and Maine Coon) and dogs (Jack Russel, Maltese, Silky Terrier, Shih Tzu, Husky, Boston Terrier, French Bulldog, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Golden Retriever and mixed-breed rescues) to chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and ‘Speedy’ the turtle!
Experience with Cats/Kittens:
Aside from pet ownership, from 2017 to 2018 we had been fostering cats and kittens through ‘Adopt Me..ow!‘, a cat rescue and adoption service in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Here we have had experience in caring for neonatal kittens just two weeks old through to mature cats, and also have experience in caring for cats with behavioural issues. We are certified in Pet First Aid (advanced).
From 2019 to now, we have been fortunate to care for many different breeds of cats through our pet siting. British-Shorthair, Bengal, Persian, Siamese, Burmese, Maine Coon and many mix breed rescues.
Based on our combined experience and training, we are confident in knowing how to take care of your animal’s needs and we are both actively engaged in both play and exercise and in maintaining their general health.

Experience with Dogs:
Our experience with dogs ranges from small pedigrees to larger mixed-breed ‘soi’ dogs that roam the local villages in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our responsibilities have included feeding, providing fresh water, exercising and general interaction and play, as well as administering medication and offering Veterinary care as necessary.
Our first house/pet-sit was in the San Kamphaeng region of Chiang Mai, caring for five mixed-breed dogs and five short-haired domestic cats. From this sit, we knew that we thrive on caring for large fur-families.
Home Care – Maintenance and Security:
What about general home care and maintenance? Whatever needs doing while you are away, we are able to assist with mowing (both ride-on and push mowers), whipper-snipping (‘strimming or weed-whacking’), weeding, watering, pruning, maintaining vegetable gardens, spa and pool maintenance plus general maintenance jobs that may need attention.
Concerned about security? We are respectful of your privacy and proactive when it comes to protecting your assets. Kirk has safely delivered over 250,000 parcels during his time as a delivery driver, and this role required yearly Police clearance checks. Aside from this, Kirk was also cleared to enter secure areas of the local airport as part of his role.
Last but not least, do you also operate a Bed & Breakfast or Gite? Leanne has had many years experience with helping within her family’s Motel business. Her responsibilities included guest relations, taking bookings, check-in/check-out, room preparation/cleaning/laundry, and preparation and serving of breakfasts and dinners.
