About Natalie

Hi! I am Natalie. I have lived with animals my entire life; from a lizard to cats, guinea pigs to goats, it's fair to say I have extensive pet care experience. Furthermore, I have over five years' voluntary work as a stable hand where I was responsible for the care of the horses - whether it be grooming or providing hay. In addition, I have nine months' experience volunteering as a ranger at a zoo! My passion and love for animals has driven me to pursue a degree in Zoology which I am currently working towards. So as a student, I am fully flexible and have no other commitments, so I am available 24/7 for bookings!

Regarding dogs, I have had plenty of experience caring for them - including walking and home sitting. I will make sure that I provide all the attention and care your dog requires. I have had experience with troublesome rescue dogs and I have taken online courses for Dog CPR and Dog Choking.

I have had pet cats my entire life. Thus, I have extensive knowledge of cat care and welfare. I am experienced in caring for elderly cats and those with special and/or strict requirements. In particular, I have had plenty experience caring for cats with gingivitis, cancer and kidney disease. I can administer a variety of medications from pills to pastes, and I will make sure that your cat is pampered and happy whilst you are away. I can provide plenty of enrichment and play and I will not leave until they are content and well-fed!

Below are some reviews I have recieved from different pet care platforms:

"Natalie has looked after my elderly cat Max on a very regular and on-going basis. Max required regular and accurate dosages of veterinary prescribed medicine, which Natalie administered very professionally. Max was always seeking cuddles and hugs and Natalie would go out of her way to make sure that he always felt loved and settled at home when we were not there. The care Natalie provided spanned from just one day to a week or more when we were away. I always felt very confident that Natalie would take great care of Max and I felt secure leaving him in her care. Nothing was too much trouble; emptying litter trays, grooming and combing, ensuring fresh water, general feeding, administering medicine etc and lots of TLC." - Jan F.

"Natalie is a true animal lover. Her ability to befriend all kinds of animals is always astonishing. She has looked after our family's rescue dog, Max, on a few different occasions now and she has been great. Being a rescue, Max can be nervous around new people, but he got along with Natalie immediately, and now they are best of friends. He even gets excited when he knows Natalie will be taking care of him." - Adam L.

Natalie took excellent care of my two cats, especially my 19 year old cat who needed medication for her heart condition.

She followed my feeding instructions perfectly and kept me informed.

I would recommend Natalie to pet owners looking for a caring considerate pet sitter.
