I am a friendly, reliable and experienced animal lover with a flexible schedule, living in BS5.
I've had pets all my life, growing up in the countryside we always had cats and dogs, and later in my adult life I had house rabbits for 12 years.
I adore CATS and DOGS equally and I have a real soft spot for BUNNIES! I am happy to look after hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. as well.
One of my rabbits lived 11 years, which is extremely long for a rabbit so it's safe to say he was really well looked after! I know how to keep rabbits safe and healthy, I'm experienced in recognising signs of ill health and I am aware that time is key when it comes to rabbits - they are such delicate little creatures!
Since 2016, when I started a new life in the UK, I have not been able to have any pets and I miss them dearly!!! I visit friends just to snuggle their cats, and I miss my mum's dogs back home just as much as I miss other family members (because that's what they are). When I look after your pet, it will not only give you a peace of mind while you're away, but it will also give me joy as I get to be around pets.
I work in social care (social worker by qualification) so looking after and caring for others is my second nature - and this includes animals. I will give your pet the care that it needs, food, health needs, cuddles, play time, exercise, etc. - according to your instructions.
Being in social care also means that I have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (latest one dated April 2019), which I am happy to present.
One of my cats had recently been hit by a car so I was very anxious about leaving them for the first time since while I went on holiday. However I needn't have worried as Virag was amazing. She sent my regular photo updates so I could see how happy they were in her care. She was also very observant with their behaviour and let me know of any concerns she noted. Cats were very settled when I got back and it was clear they had been well looked after.
Virag was brilliant. She responded to messages quickly and we arranged a meet and great within a few days. Whilst I was away, Virag was really helpful, she sent pictures daily of our cat and sent us a little update as to how he was getting on. She watered our plants which was a godsend during the hot weather. Our cat can sometimes respond badly to us going away but he was settled and happy when we returned. Great service all round, highly recommended.
