Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up with pets my whole life and currently I am lucky enough to share my life with 3 adorable cats, named Bagheera, Percy and Louis.

Bagheera is a thirteen year old fluffy black cat, who is named after the character from “The Jungle Book”. Percy and Louis are both eleven years old and they are tuxedo cats. A couple of years ago, Percy was hit by a speeding car and injured his leg quite badly. This resulted in him having to have one of his back legs amputated. This was a very traumatic time for him and I made sure I gave him the TLC he needed during his post-op recovery. Percy is now fully recovered and it is amazing how well he has adapted to having just 3 legs.

I love my fur babies with all my heart and I have a special bond with each of them. My cats love to play, sit on my lap and they often cuddle with me at bedtime. I have previous experience of looking after the homes and pets of family and friends whilst they’ve been away and I have always enjoyed it so much.

I adore and have a passion for all animals and I strongly believe that they deserve to be treated with tons of love, care and respect.

Please describe how you know this person:

I am a former neighbour of Charlotte's and felt very comfortable leaving my toy pom in her care. My toy pom needs attention 24/7 and just as much food, so I had peace of mind knowing that Charlotte was available to pet sit for me when I was away.

I could enjoy my holiday knowing that if I wanted to check up on my doggie, Charlotte would answer my messages and calls promptly. Charlotte is soft spoken and I could not imagine her hurting or neglecting anyone's beloved pets.

Additional Comments: Charlotte is great with my animals and always kept to my ''very prescriptive'' notes concerning my fur babies. The only concern I do have is that Prince (my Pekingese) has been left inside the home when Charlotte was not at home and he peed on my carpet. I could immediately smell it as none of my furries have ever done that. I've asked Charlotte to leave Prince outside in the front garden and refresh his water when she is not around during the day, this was not done. I know my 'boy'' and he is well house trained, but where must he relieve himself if he is not taken outside regularly. I feel my ''boy'' has been let down in this regard and I've trusted Charlotte with this. Otherwise I'm happy with my pet sitter but would consider being introduced to another sitter who is fully responsible.

Note from StudentCo: We thank Aletha for this feedback. The issue was promptly addressed. Thank you for helping us improve!
