About Francesca

Hello there!

I am in my third year studying Veterinary Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College in Hatfield. I love animals and recognise their importance to people for all different reasons; whether it be as a companion, a livelihood or as a family member. I currently own two cats (back in my home in Switzerland) and one here in London (Maisy) so I am aware of their needs and behaviours to properly care for or petsit cats. I also have experience dog sitting and dog walking (including Golden Retrievers, Australian Jack Russels, Australian Cattle dogs, Swiss Shepherds, Cockerpoos, Border Collies, English Bulldogs and Olde Tyme Bulldogs) as I have looked after canines previously. I have also had practice caring for rabbits, birds and horses.

I am a responsible, friendly and trustworthy individual with a passion for pets. While I speak English as my mother tongue I also speak French and understand German due to my time living in Switzerland. I am happy walking, pet sitting or simply feeding your pets while you need a helping hand.

I also own a car so am able to drive, if needs be, to get to you and your pet.

Although I am always happy to petsit, because of my intense study schedule at university I may not always be free to look after your pets during the day when you require it. Do not however hesitate to send me a message if you require pet care near me. I am always happy to check my schedule for you a few days/weeks in advance to see if I would be available for the times that you request.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon,

Francesca
