About Fiona

Hi, I'm Fiona. I'm in my mid forties and I'm an NHS mental healthcare clinician and sometime freelance digital arts tutor based in London. I’m currently also studying Illustration at post-graduate level, in my spare time.

I am an honest, reliable, gentle, considerate, friendly and conscientious animal-lover who would love the opportunity to provide a high quality pet care service for you.

Much of my work is done from home throughout the week which allows for day to day flexibility in accommodating your pet care needs. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss your requirements.

I adore animals, and miss being able to have furry friends around, so being able to provide pet care for others suits my current circumstances perfectly, since I cannot keep pets where I live. Pet sitting is a great way to make the most of my affinity with animals, and to contribute a valuable service to pet owners in the process.

My experience

Extensive previous house and pet-sitting experience. Many previous satisfied and repeat clients.

I adore animals, and am able to build rapport with them very quickly to put them at ease. Previous devoted cat-owner of many years experience.

Highly responsible and caring nature.

Respect for your home, pets and possessions.

Able to give your pets lots of attention, company and reassurance.

Very patient, calm and reassuring with nervous or anxious animals.

When providing overnight care, I seek to ensure maximum peace of mind for you in your home so that you can relax whilst away, safe in the knowledge that your home and its furry (and leafy) occupants are being well looked after. Happy to keep in regular phone or email contact with you, and to include photos of your pet/s too, as part of the service.

I also seek to be very considerate and accommodating towards any pet's individual needs and quirks, especially while they're adjusting to their owners' temporary absence.

I set high standards for myself in all that I take on. I am also practical, resourceful, organised and self-reliant.

Prepared to consider travelling beyond London for longer sits.

Thanks for bearing me in mind. I look forward to discussing your situation and particular requirements in more detail if you'd like to get in touch.
