Hey! I am Anita, a mother of two children, fulltime university student (Nutrition) and a bank elderly healthcare worker. We live with two lovely white cats, a Bengal cat and a Syrian hamster. I have done pet sitting for more than three years now as I love animals and I enjoy their company! Animals bring so much happiness and laughter in our lives and could not imagine not having any pets 😺.
I do house visits when owners are away and have looked after cats, rabbits and dogs. My services depend on the individual needs of the owners and their pets, I understand routines are very important and every pet is different. I normally feed the pets, groom them, play with them and do personal care for them (e.g. cleaning cat litter box etc.). I also enjoy taking dogs out for their walks!
I have had cats for the past 25+ years, and I am passionate about animal welfare. Pets really do become a part of your family and that is why it is so important that they are looked after with loving care even when they are cared for by someone else! My own cats are now 12 years old, still active and affectionate brothers with their own personalities. One of them has been deaf since his birth so I understand how to look after pets with hard of hearing.
My newest addition is 4 years old rescue Bengal, super curious and energetic. I fostered cats at our home for Cats Protection in 2019-2020, and found it a privilege to care for these cats before they moved to their forever homes!
Before I joined Pawshake and when we lived in Spain, I did pet sitting twice for two different families. Both families had two cats and I really enjoyed the experiences. The cats were so excited to see me every time I came in the door which was lovely! I spent my time there feeding them, changing the water and cat litter, brushing their fur and playing with them.
It is in our dreams to have a dog when our children are a bit older.
Anita Is fantastic, I can’t recommend her highly enough, she clearly loves animals and you know they are going to be well looked after by her.
We cannot recommend Anita highly enough as a pet sitter and how happy we are that our two cats are looked after so well when we are away on holiday. One of our cats is very elderly and has to have have various medications through the day and Anita deals with this all in her stride. She also sends up updates everyday and photo's of how our cats are getting along which is always very reassuring and means that we can totally relax while we are away. Anita will always be our first choice as a pet sitter for our holidays knowing our cats are in very safe hands.
I volunteer for Cats Protection and do indoor fostering at our home.
