My name is Carly and I have a love for all animals great and small. My whole life revolves around animals and I know how worrying it is to leave your babies while you go away.
I currently own 12 rabbits, a parrot and 2 dogs and also have 2 other family dogs living with me. I have always had lots of animals and up until recently I have always had cats too. 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 have experience with guinea pigs and chinchillas also.
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 they are complicated. 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 at a cattery, around caring for my own animals and pet sitting for several regular cats/rabbits 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.
