Hi! I'm Miranda and I live in Cambridge with my husband.
We have had several cats over the years which we have adopted from the Blue Cross. We recently lost our last cat, Mike, which was devastating but he was an old boy when we adopted him and we feel happy that we were able to give him a calm and relaxed time in his final years with us. As a child I had cats and always knew as an adult I would have lots of animals around me.
We are in the process of moving and a bit of a building renovation, so have decided not to have any pets for a while until we are settled again. I am also in the process of setting up a business. Therefore I felt pet sitting would be a great thing to do on the side, to make a bit of pocket money and to have some contact with animals when we currently don't have any ourselves.
I know how hard it is to find a good pet sitter - I always worried about leaving Mike on his own and was probably a very needy owner, constantly checking up with the pet sitter that he was ok. But it made me realise what an important responsibility pet sitting is, and when I look after other people's pets I always treat them as my own and make sure their humans are kept informed so that they can relax and know their pets are being well cared for.
I have never done paid pet sitting before but used to look after our neighbors cats for many years when they went away. I also used to walk another neighbors dog, as she needed quite a bit of exercise and my neighbor wasn't too mobile.
I am happy to look after dogs, cats and smaller furry friends, providing the basics (food/water/litter tray/medications etc) as well as plenty of cuddles and attention!
I look forward to hearing from you :)
Miranda bonded very quickly with Florence (which was unusual). She was reliable and responsive, did everything I asked of her in caring for my cat, and I felt completely at ease in leaving Florence in her care.
Miranda was great, good communication before and after, took the time to keep up fully updated on how Lady was during her visit, would not hesitate to use again.
