About Sara

Hi there, 

I am a super experienced, entusiastic and reliable pet sitter. I am really a cat person ^^😻with 20 years experience and 5 star reviews on CatinaFlat, cat sitting app/site to prove it, (happy to show) and have been also looking after 🐕‍🦺 dogs here and in New Zealand (my home country) for the past few years.

 I fell in love with a cockapoo in Christchurch 💙 I am confident with all types of dogs and enjoy taking them for walks and playing in green spaces, as well as spending time with them in their homes.  

I live ten minutes walk from Clapham Common and have a good nose for hidden gardens, churchyards and spots to run and play about, in the area.

I grew up with cats and have a young Oriental cat who I absolutely adore and have had since he was 5 weeks old. I believe animals should be free, happy and relaxed.

I love befriending new animals and keeping them fed and well cared for. Always giving fresh water and keeping their litter trays clean, cuddling, playing and generally conversing in cat, dog and human languages.

  I am very security concious and polite with neighbours, careful with pets who may be elderly of infirmed ,can give medications and love to brush and soothe nervous animals.

I can also do sleep overs, with some notice, as long as they are close enough to Clapham Common for me to pop in on my cat at least once a day .

 I am very flexible, at the moment while studing copywriting and working as a freelance journalist from home. With long term local clients in the Clapham, you can be sure that I am reliable and trustworthy.

I also have an updated DBS (police check) as I do some work with children, with special emotional needs, now and then through a teaching agency.

So 👀 looking forward to making more friends, both pets and owners and get to know more of my neighbours. 

I'm in Clapham Common in SW47LJ, between Clapham North and Clapham Common tubes, very near the high street.

Xmas 🎄 period- I add a 20% charge for over the Christmas week and 100% on Christmas Day. I'm available for visits and Housesitting an easy to walk away only, during this time. I want to spend proper time with each pet and give them love .

Hoping to find more local animals to care for over this time 💕

Sara looked after Peel and Arlo in a house sit over Christmas 2022, and did a great job.

She looked after both cats and house very well, leaving the cats happy and the house spotless. Excellent communication throughout and would happily recommend.
