Experience with animals and own pets

As a child, my dream job was to be a professional dog walker. As I have grown up my aspirations have grown up with me, but my love for animals has not diminished!

Growing up, we had 2 very loving and affectionate cats. We got them from a shelter as I believe in adoption and giving a loving animal a good home, rather than buying a pet from a pet shop.

We later homed 2 energetic and playful Jack Russell x Dachshund dogs.

Currently we are without pets, but I still take every opportunity to play with and cuddle the pets at my family and friends houses!

I have experience looking after the pets and homes of friends and family. I love pet sitting as I get to look after and love someone’s pets as if they are my own, until the time when I can get my own pets.

Please describe how you know this person:

I initially met Zoe through her parents. In December ,last year I had an arrangement with a housesitter who let me down a few days before I was due to travel.

Zoe came to the rescue! I am very indebted to her for this. Even though it was over Christmas and New Year, she looked after my home and my two Staffies for 3 weeks.

I had absolute peace of mind. She kept in touch with me via email and WhatsApp.

When I returned home everything was totally in order and my dogs were happy.

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to Housesit or to look after pets.

Additional Comments:

Hi, Zoe stayed over to look after my cat, Kiki.

She is hands down the best pet-sitter I have used to date - she has excelleny communication skills and kept me up to date with pictures and feedback regarding my kitty.

I could also tell how happy and content Kiki was, which made me extremely at ease when I was away for 2 weeks.

I highly recommend Zoe and would like to use her again in the future.

Thank you!
