About Kerry

Hello! My name is Kerry, I'm 32 years old and I'm a Qualified Veterinary Nurse who works in an Animal Hospital specialising in Emergency and Critical Care. I live in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

I drive, I own a full license and have my own car.

I've owned pets all my life- I'm currently owned by two cats; Callie and Jim. Callie tends to keep herself to herself, however, Jim is a typical young ginger male who loves everyone, everything and just loves to play!

I've lived in London/for 14 years (Hertfordshire for the past 3 years)and I've been a qualified nurse for 10 years. I’m originally from Manchester but I moved down to Di my BSc in Veterinary Nursing at the Royal Veterinary College. Throughout this time I've done pet sitting. I've looked after dozens of cats and dogs; both visits, sleepovers and dog walks. I'm happy doing short sits (1 walk, 1 feed) or long sits (a month or more) I pride myself in treating each pet as my own. Lots of love and cuddles. And regular owner updates!

I have experience with dogs and cats of many breeds, all ages and sizes; from you 6 week old Labrador to your 21-year-old cat!

I’m comfortable looking after pediatric to geriatric; competent and well educated on many conditions and diseases, so your pet will be in safe hands. I’m experienced with pets with behavioural issues.

I will always insist on at least one meet and greet beforehand so that I can answer any questions you may have and so your pet can have a sniff and a fuss get to know me!

House Sitting

Kerry was fantastic. We were nervous about leaving our 10m old kittens for the first time (especially as they hadn’t met many people because of lockdown) but Kerry put us at ease straight away when she came to visit. She housesat for us for 2 weeks and was brilliant with the cats (and keeping their nervous owners informed!). She took special care with both of them, and we came back to find them and the house very well taken care of. We were especially reassured that Kerry was a veterinary nurse. We would definitely recommend her.

Kerry did an excellent job of looking after our cat whilst we were on holiday, including texts and a photo. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!
