Experience with animals and own pets

From a young age I have been around animals. Currently I have a rescue cat called Keke and two adorable crossbreed dogs, Toga and Waffles.

As a child we went from hamsters to birds to lizards, my parents endured all kinds of pets. In scouts we would do SPCA outreach days to clean, groom, walk and love the animals. These days were my favourite because there is nothing more heart-warming like giving love and attention to animals.

I cannot wait to give your loved animals all the attention in the world while their parents are away.

Please describe how you know this person:

Leigh has house sat for us on many occasions and every time we come back, my dogs will not leave her alone, they absolutely adore her, she is even great with my son who is 9years old. Leigh has also done some Office work for me when I have needed help, as I work from home. There is no doubt in my mind that she will be absolutely reliable, responsible and be loving towards the animals she has to look after. She is a joy to be around
