About Simon

I’m Simon. I’m a writer and script reader and working from home over the years I ended up becoming a person people kept asking to look after their various cats and dogs (the largest being a Dalmatian and the smallest a post-minor op kitten) and I found I really enjoyed it. I’ve just done a lovely stint of dog sitting on the south coast in Portsmouth and then Worthing and whilst still happy to go further afield I would also like to do some sitting closer to home. I offer house sitting looking after dogs and/or cats if you are away overnight or away or on holiday for two weeks or possibly longer.

Having a happy well fed well walked dog is very satisfying. My family has had dogs for thirty years and I’m always looking after them. I’m a fan of Yorkie-tons who are the most sweet natured and playful family dogs. I’m also a cat lover especially of Calicos who seem especially spirited and naughty.

I will follow your instructions to the letter but within that I will spoil them rotten while you are away to have them happy in their own environment. I have never smoked and do not drink bar the very occasional beer a few times a year. I have a basic DBS check as of last October and as someone new to the site can provide contact with referees. I’m very quiet and my idea of a good evening is a string of documentaries on BBC4 or a good film of any vintage or a Gogglebox double bill on E4.

I was very nervous using pawshake for the first time but it couldn’t have gone any better.

My 2 rescue cats are very shy and Simon respected their boundaries and let them come to him when they were ready.

Simon also left my house spotless and provided me updates every morning.

I would definitely book Simon again, he is a lovely chap.

Thank you!
