My name is Carly and I have a love for all animals great and small. My whole life revolves around animals and I am aware how worrying it is to leave your babies while you go on holiday as I experienced when I had to find a pet sitter for the first time. I currently own 11 rabbits and 2 dogs and also have 2 other family dogs living with me. I have always had lots of animals and have previously had cats so I have a wide knowledge of the most common companian animals. I used to own an African Pygmy Hedgehog and sugar gliders too.
I am very knowledgeable about rabbits in particular, and I know how hard it is to find someone trustworthy who knows enough about rabbits. As rabbits are prey animals they tend to hide illness very well and a lot of problems will go unnoticed if you are not able to pick up on the very subtle signs. I can identify these signs and ensure your pet gets immediate veterinary treatment. I am aware of the proper diet and care that they require and the gentle handling needed in order to avoid unnecessary stress.
I currently work part time at a cattery, around caring for my own animals and pet sitting for several regular cats through Pawshake. I have always worked with animals and have worked in several kennels/catteries, several rescues and veterinary practices too. I previously volunteered with Wildlife Aid and regularly pick up injured wildlife to take them to rescues.
VISITS TO YOUR HOME: I am able to do up to 2 home visits a day for cats or small animals in order to feed them, clean any cages/litter trays, give them a brush and some love and anything else that is required. I am able to administer medications as I have done so with my own rabbits and with a lot of cats and dogs at my work. I am responsible and I take the welfare of animals very seriously, so you can be 100% that I will always ensure that your pets are cared for the best I possibly can. I will give you regular updates on how they are doing and will notify you of any problems right away. I look forward to hearing from you and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
My cat Pookie (age 14) was very relaxed when we got back home. So different from when I last used a cattery. I'm not suggesting the cattery did anything wrong, but cats are very territorial, especially when older. He obviously had a bit of TLC too.
Carly took on a big job for us, looked after our difficult cats for many weeks!
I completed my first year of my foundation degree in Animal Management and Conservation, I am currently taking a break from studies to work full time.
I would like to undertake pet sitting and animal first aid courses in the future.
