About Me/ Company

I finished a very busy year in 2018 and have spent 4 months in New Zealand at the beginning of 2019 housesitting and looking after 3 rescue dogs, 3 elderly rescue cats and 2 rescudrabbits in connection with a leading animal charity, for 3 months. I have been a cat sitter and dog sitter for 6 years and 9 months. I am based in the East Midlands, but I do overnight sitting in most parts of the UK. I am a mature lady and have been an animal lover all my life.
I have had experience of looking after Persian cats, 2 Maine Coons, a rag doll, a British Blue, Devon Rex's an Italian cat plus fireside cats and farm cats of all ages from various backgrounds. The oldest cat I looked after was 21 years of age, who sadly passed away recently. My daughter has a silver tabby, my brother had two sphynx cats and my nephew had Bengalese, so I'm used to be being in the company of cats.

Previous Experience

I also cat sit for a young cat who was run over by a car. After major surgery, he has recovered, and he has to take medication three times a day.
I once looked after two rescue cats who had been
mistreated in the past. They had been kept inside for the initial two weeks, and were allowed to wander just as my booking began for a long weekend. The owner also had a dog who had been very territorial, since the arrival of the two cats. They were also unused to one another, and, to make it worse, it was bonfire weekend. I soothed them and managed to get them settled during a very noisy weekend with fireworks.
By the time Sunday evening came, I was 'the cat who sat on the mat' in front of the fire, and they were curled up next to one another on an armchair. It was very rewarding to have achieved that.

Qualifications & Training

I have recently qualified for a Veterinary Assistants Diploma. I hold a DBS certificate and am fully insured. I also can provide outstanding references from established customers.

Relevant Info

My father comes from a farming family, and I once was a young farmer.
I have a recent DBS certificate. I also have a Food Hygiene Certificate. I also have Veterinary Support Assistant Diploma.
I can provide references, and I have full insurance.

Other Services

I am happy to give medication. I have been known to sit on the floor and feed cats by spoon or hand to ensure that they have taken their tablets.
Obviously, as a house owner, I have experience of dealing with issues which may arise in a house. I am quite happy to ensure plants (both indoor and outdoor) are watered, etc
