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.
Teddy and Dolly’s new favourite sitter! Gemma’s a dab hand with cats and handled our boys and the medication remarkably.
Our cats had got really used to us both being home during covid so we were a bit anxious about leaving them for 5 days. But they both really warmed to Gemma (even the shy one!) and were obviously really well looked after. We got messages with photos and videos of them during every visit, and came back to two very happy cats! Would highly recommend Gemma.
