Pets are our best friends and it's important to give them the love and care they deserve. I'd love the opportunity to provide this for your pets when you're unavaible so they have 100% TLC at all times. I have recently moved back to Northern Ireland after living in Edinburgh for a year and half. Before moving to Edinburgh, I sat for cats and dogs and had repeat dog walking customers and whilst in Edinburgh I was lucky to sit for some lovely cats! Now that I'm back in Northern Ireland, I would love the opportunity to look after all kinds of animals again!
I've been passionate about animals since childhood and was lucky enough to work with a charity as an Animal Care Assistant whilst in Edinburgh. I got to work with dogs, cats, ferrets, reptiles, rodents, birds and more every day! This involved basic cleaning and feeding, but also working closely with the animals to rehabilite them so that they could find their furever homes once they were ready. I am also able to administer oral medications to cats, dogs and rodents, and aural medications to cats, dogs, rodents and ferrets. In this role I was responsible for noting any changes in behaviour, health or toileting in animals so you can rest assured that I will make sure your pet is 100% happy and healthy at all times.
Outside of work, I've walked up to 5 dogs at a time (4 large dogs and one small) and received great feedback from the owners. Currently, I have a 14 year old terrier cross named Clara and 8 year old labrador named Tilly. Tilly is a tripawd (front left leg amputation) but with hard work and decidation she has made a full recovery and is as active as ever. I can care for dogs of all ages and abilities and I think it's really important to recognise that each animal is different and has their own character and individual needs and I love being able to provide this. In Edinburgh, I rescued two lovely cats - Mochi and Maris. They are both amazing little individuals with totally different personalities and brighten up my day every day. I have also had Syrian Hamsters, both rescues. Hamsters are amazing little animals that I adore and I would love the opportunity to care for more.
I am currently unemloyed so I am available at any time all throughout the week for dog walking, home visits or pet sitting over night. I have my own car so I am able to travel to you and bring your dogs for adventures (with permission of course!). Due to the needs of my own pets, I am unable to offer over night stays in my home.
I love the outdoors and I'm willing to walk dogs no matter the weather. Scotland is famous for its wet weather and after working outside for a year and a half I am semi-weather resistant and well adjusted to working in the rain! Home-visits would last for up to an hour (I am open to staying longer if required) and involve lots of TLC and walks if permitted, along with regular care duties including feeding, changing water, medicine administration, cleaning bedding and liter trays and cleaning outdoor areas.
I would love the opportunity to provide your pets with the love I give my own and every other animal I encounter. All animals are equal and deserving of TLC no matter the size or species. I have experience with cats, dogs (large and small), ferrets, rodents, reptiles and birds.
I'm really excited to hear from you and hopefully meet your furbabies and begin caring for them!
Sarah has been great! Attila really liked her, which is rare, and I will definitely ask her again to help us.
She followed all the instructions and provided a great service. I suggest you call her if you need a cat sitter :)
Sarah really helped out with a fairly last minute booking and left us feeling totally relaxed and sure that our cat Sherry would be in great hands. Her communication was great, and she was so pleasant to talk to.
