About Gemma

Hi my name is Gemma, and I am a crazy cat lady. 

I am a charity finance manager in Exeter city centre as my day job. Over the years I have owned four cats, ranging in ages from 2 years to 17 years old. I have volunteered with Refuge4Pets, and donate regularly to Cats Protection. My pet-sitting business is carbon neutral through Ecologi. 

I am happy to look after all cats from the independent aloof cat, to the cuddle-hungry elderly (they will always hold a special place in my heart), to the rambunctious kitten. Multi-cat households are also fine with me. I recently completed a 'Pet First Aid and CPR' course.

My service area is the last image on my photo gallery (St. Thomas/St. Davids/city centre). Morning visits outside of this area may not be possible on weekdays depending on your specific address and dates. 

I'll send you a photo each day with a little update on how the visit went. 

I'm also happy to keep an eye on any smaller pets that live with your cat/s (hamsters, guinea pigs, rodents, birds, fish etc.). I can water any houseplants, collect parcels from wherever the couriers have hidden them, and take out the bins. 

The main areas I cover are St. Thomas, Exeter City Centre, and St. Davids. 

I usually do pet visits in the mornings before 9.30, or evenings around 5.30, but I'm happy to discuss specifics.

Thanks again to Gemma for looking after Jess and George so well. It was great to receive photos and updates while on holiday, and to know the guys were being well looked after. Jess and George definitely love their new friend. We returned home to a tidy house and happy pets! Thanks so much!

Being the first time we have used pawshake, I was a bit nervous about using it. I shouldn't have been as Gemma was excellent. She sent a daily picture and update about our cat. Highly recommended!
