A bit about me
Hi there! I'm Lauren, and I am 25 years old. I work part time, Monday to Thursday so I am flexible as to when I can look after your pets! I live in the Southside, and graduated university in 2015, having studied English Literature and Counselling.
I'd be the ideal petsitter because I have a real affinity with animals. I love being around animals, especially cats, and have the right balance of being both energetic and soothing, depending on the approach preferred by the animal. I have a lot of free time so I would really like to fill that time with making sure your pets have the best kind of care.
I have grown up with cats, going through all the fun and difficulties of experiencing a cat’s life from kitten to old age. It has always been said that I have a natural affinity with them, and you will not find anyone with more love for each and every one of them. I have medical knowledge, such as how to treat them for fleas, administer medication, and identify symptoms of different ailments, having looked after cats with ailments such as cancer and asthma. I am respectful to cats, being affectionate and playful with them but knowing when they require to be left alone.
I have to congratulate Lauren for taking my booking at a time, when I was struggling to find a sitter, which helped a lot! We had issues exchanging keys, but managed at the end. Lauren responded to messages accurately and took care of my cat as instructed. Whenever I asked, I received a photo of him as well.
Disappointed to see a few minor instances of neglect, such as cat food on the floor next to the bin in the kitchen, as well as a lot of cat litter on the floor in the bathroom - things, which could have easily been scooped away, prior to our return. Rascal (the cat) himself was not very relaxed upon our return, which leads me to believe the time spent at our flat playing was not as much as I hoped it would be. Of course, I can account this to us being away, but some dynamic feedback of how he is each day (more relaxed/anxious, not playful/playful, etc.) would have been helpful to ease the tension of being away.
Lauren was quick to respond to messages, helpful and an excellent cat sitter.
