I'm a 30 year old animal lover, who grew up on a farm. We had plenty of animals, but i particularly loved my sheep dogs and their wisdom. I also had the naughtiest, toughest little Jack Russel called Scooter, who had bundles of character and had left me with many amusing stories. I also grew up with a family of farm cats who were all born in my bedroom. They kept coming back there to give birth, which was nice to wake up to. They were amazing because they barely needed feeding and i felt very lucky to be able to offer them such freedom. I thought about having a cat here in Bristol but have too many birds visiting the surrounding gardens. I also grew up with horses and cows in our fields and sheep which we farmed. This gave me experience training our sheep dogs.
Since being in Bristol i have been a care worker and musician. This has been a tough period for both professions but gave me a chance to open a door to a fresh start. I am now looking to getting back to some more fresh air and time with animals, which i had been craving. I don't currently have a dog as my schedule has not allowed it before now. I have though looked after two friends sheep dogs regularly and one terrier cross, as you can see in the photos. Norman, the Terrier cross was very challenging and needed real consistency, after being rescued by a friend.
I love walking, running and playing with dogs, cats and really all animals. I also intuitively know when they need space. I am fortunate enough to back on to a recreation ground, with easy access to Stoke Park. I am able to offer at least two good walks during daycare and plenty of garden time too. My walks tend to be half hour at the least and so are my visits. Dogs sleep in the hallway if they stay and occasionally on the upstairs hallway nearer to me if they are likely to wake up my one housemate. Our home is spacious, as is our garden, which is fully fenced. I work part-time, but have the flexibility and will be home with the pets when i am caring for them.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Charlie is a great cat sitter. Kind, communicative and clearly loves pets in general.
