About Emma

I am an animal lover with lifelong experience taking care of cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, reptiles, frogs, birds, sheep, and even goats! I was raised to adore animals of every kind, and when I'm visiting my parents, I'm taking care of the pet goats on the smallholding. We have an attention seeking sheep called Mabel who is more comparable to a puppy than an ovine!

I have more experience with pet sitting and drop-in visits but am happy to walk your dog or hang out with your pets for the day too! I can't do doggy day care as my housemate's cat wouldn't appreciate it, but I am more than happy to have fun with them at your house and on walks.

I grew up with animals, so giving them the love and care they need and deserve is second nature to me. I work particularly well with cats, rodents, and reptiles - and your houseplants if needed!

The animals I have kept are very particular with their housing arrangements, so it really does take a responsible person to give them a home and I am more than willing to put in the effort to make sure your pet's needs are well catered for. Did you know guinea pigs need a friend, or they get lonely? That goats have very sensitive tummies? Or that a snake can't digest food at cooler temperatures? 

I'm in Cheltenham to study in my 2nd year of uni, so it gets a bit lonely having left my pets at home with my family. This is why I would love to take care of yours, and if allowed am more than happy to entertain or cuddle your pets (but just a quick check-up on how your animal is doing is totally fine too!) Fuzzy or not, every animal brings me joy and I'm always excited to meet a furry (or furless!) friend.

Out of term time, I stay at my mum's house in Somerset, nearby the aforementioned smallholding. This is where my guinea pigs, tortoise, cat, finches, and ball python reside. They are all very spoilt, having had thousands invested into their homes (the guinea pigs even have a heater!)

I'm comfortable and experienced with administering oral medication (especially to small exotic animals), but am not comfortable with injections due to inexperience.
