About Laura

I have been caring for pets all my life. Growing up, we always had a varied selection of pets, as well as the usual Dogs and Cats, I also had other pets including Rabbits, Hamsters, Budgies, Fish, AP Hedgehog and even Stick Insects! I always say that a house is not a home without a pet and throughout my life there has always been a cat or dog in my home.

We now have a rescue cat called Romeo. He joined us as a rescue kitten in November 2017 - he's quite a character! I recently tried him in a Cattery when I went away on holiday. I found him to be very clingy, thinking I was going to abandon him. Next time around, I will have him stay at home in his own surroundings. It got me thinking into helping others. I found that there wasn’t many options available locally.

We have often struggled to find reliable pet carers to feed our previous pets during family holidays, so I understand the requirements and I feel that I can offer this service to others.

I am a kind, caring, sensible, honest, reliable, mature lady and I would like to offer my services for the caring of your pet in your home, plus other requirements during my visits, such as watering plants, picking up post etc. I will also consider overnight pet/house sitting.

Laura provided excellent care to my 3 house cats for two weeks of my holiday. She spent time on her first visit over and above the initial half hour to enable her and my cats to get to know each other. This is dedication to the job of pet sitter. We had an extremely difficult experience last year with a pet sitter who was to visit twice daily for 30mins, who in fact spent less than 5 mins with my cats thus causing them stress and one cat to wee on the bathmat for the duration of my 3 week holiday. I was very anxious this didn’t happen again. So when Laura told me she had visited for a much longer period it put my mind at rest knowing my cats were in expert and confident hands. Lara spent time playing and interacting with my cats as well as the routine jobs like litter tray, food and water. I know my cats were kept safe and well cared for whilst I was away and I would certainly use Laura again and recommend her as a pet sitter to anyone in the area. She is dedicated to the welfare of pets in her care and will go out of her way to provide an excellent service. Thank you.
