Hello my name is Gemma and I live in Fishponds. I currently work from home which I share with my family including our two cats Bobby and Rosie, and our three chickens (who you can see sunbathing on our decking below)
I love animals but know what a pain it can be when you need to travel. I will happily look after your pets whilst you are away, and give them the attention and reassurance they need. if your pet whats to have a little play or cuddle i can do that. I am happy to look after elderly and disabled cats, and can administer medication if required. I have also previously been a volunteer with the Cinnamon Trust. I have previously had hamsters, rabbits, rats, chickens and a tortoise as pets, and have volunteered at Bristol Zoo where I helped with the husbandry of spiders, reptiles, giant snails and cockroaches. Whilst you are away i can send you updates and photos so that you know your pet is doing okay. Im also happy to put bins out, water plants, draw curtains etc.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your pet needs, and I will ensure that your pets remain happy and looked after whilst you 're away. I can do one or two visits per day, and can time those visits to meet your needs.
We feel so lucky to have found Gemma! Over 8 days she cared for our two cats and was friendly, communicative and professional at all times. We really appreciated the WhatsApp updates and felt certain that they were in safe hands. She even cleaned up the debris of a broken plant pot that the cats had managed to break, which was lovely and certainly above and beyond our expectations. We wouldn't hesitate to rebook Gemma every time we go away - though I imagine we'll have to join the queue! :)
I was very lucky to come across Gemma when one of my elderly rabbits was diagnosed with E. cuniculi and therefore couldn't go to holiday boarding. My rabbits are very special members of the family and had never been left unattended overnight. Gemma was very conscientious, visiting me before I made the booking, spending time with the rabbits and going over my voluminous instructions with me. She showed no hesitation about giving them their medication and really did put my mind at rest. When I came back they looked very happy and healthy. I would have no hesitation using Gemna's services again or recommending her care to other rabbit owners.
