You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking.

Experience with animals and own pets

From a young age, my mother has always instilled in my siblings and I that animals are a really important part of family life. We always had pets.

I have looked after dogs, cats, birds, reptiles (specifically bearded dragons) and even a bat once!

I have birthed kittens and puppies as well as nursed a Dachshund back onto her four legs.

I currently live away from my parents, but my partner and I are both such animal people that we adopted a kitten within the first few months of living together. Our kitten, Lucy, lives alongside our four Chinchillas.

Every time I visit my parents I am bombarded with the love of dogs varying in sizes and the love of all their cats too!

I believe that pets are part of the family and every pet needs to be cared for like you care for a child or a fellow family member. That is why I would love to be a pet sitter, because I believe that pets need the love, care and attention they deserve.
