Your Mary Puppins / Kitty Sitter
Kirsty's furry clients.
Hi, I'm Kirsty!
*All money I raise through pet care will go to animal rescue charities*
Hi, I'm based in London in the SE4 area. I'm available for weekend and evening dog walking, or occasional weekend day sitting in your home. Cat feeding once or twice a day as needed. Am also genuinely fond of mice, rats, hamsters, Guinea pigs etc! I've previously looked after owls, baby birds, ducklings and hedgehogs. Any plant watering or other tasks as appropriate. I would prefer to work as local as possible on weekdays but can travel further afield at weekends. I cannot board dogs overnight but have a secure garden and the potential for mellow dogs to visit. I work for the NHS so am fully DBS checked. I have experience in administering pet medications including pills and injections, and sticking to the guidelines of special diets. Although I do not have specific animal behaviour therapist experience I have a couple of degrees in psychology, and lots of experience in behaviour therapy for people! Previously I have looked after a cat with epilepsy, and a diabetic rescue dog who did not interact well with other dogs, and I am very patient and calm. Your pet is part of your family and I would treat them with respect and care. I would never let a dog on a walk with me out of my sight or leave them outside a shop! Whenever I pet sit I don't just put out the food, but also make a fuss of them, and play some games. Happy to send daily photo updates. I have two cats and am only without a dog of my own due to my working hours.
