About Kirsty

I am a lifelong animal lover, ever since the age of 3 when I got my first cat, Taz. Since then I have had such strong and rewarding bonds with animals, they are the best company! I'm currently a third year undergraduate student studying Philosophy at university in Bristol; dog walking or cat sitting would be the purrrrfect way to spend my free days. I can provide loving companionship and diligent care for your pet(s), and I am honestly so motivated and exited to spend more time with animals.

I am currently the owner of two semi-feral kittens, Birdy and Luna. I adopted them through Cats Protection when they were just 10 weeks old. As they are semi-feral I now have a lot of expererience earning the trust of particularly scared cats; but they have both come along leaps and bounds and are the most loving kittens and always brighten my day. Over several weeks I had to slowly gain their trust, teaching them how to play, getting them used to my voice, grooming them, treating them for ear mites (pretty invasive), but now they are very handled and are like any other pet cat!

My family also have two dogs, who I adore! We have Gracie, a westie, and Rupert, a minature yorkshire terrier with only three legs. Rupert lost a leg when he was attacked by another dog before we adopted him; he needs that bit of extra care and sometimes needs to be carried on longer walks because he is 11 now! But all of this care and work is so rewarding and soul-fulfilling.

I would love to take care of your pet! I am such an animal lover, I think that animals really connect with us on a different level to people. I have seventeen years experience of animal care and I have a lot of energy to walk your dog or play and entertain your cat. My pet experiences have made me very in tune with what each individual pet may need; no two animals are the same! They each have their own personality, and I would love to keep your pet company and become one of its new friends.

Please contact me for specific care/services questions, and to enquire about my availability. This can change week to week so it's best that we confer about it together to make arrangments, I'm very flexible! I look forward to hearing from you

Thanks so much Kirsty for taking care of our pets while we were away. And sending some nice pics and letting us know all was good at home :)

Kirsty was excellent and looked after my dog and two cats and stayed in our house for 3 nights. She sent us text updates and lovely photos of them too. I would highly recommend her.
