About Lavinia

Hiya! My name is Lavinia, I am 35 years old and have lived in Harrogate for 4 years with my partner and our daschund (a cheeky chap called Marley). I love all animals and regularly look after 2 of my friends cats. One is a very timid rescue cat who doesn't like to be approached and over time we have built up a beautiful bond where she now sits on my knee and purs. 🥰 The other has 2 playful kitties who run straight up to me when I let myself in. My own daxie, Marley, is 3 years old and we regularly go on hikes exploring Yorkshire together. It is in his nature to be a little nervous of new people, (as is my best friends cat) so I am very used to animals that prefer a laid back introduction. 
I also grew up having guinea pigs, budgies, rabbits and hamsters. 
I am a trustee for the DMTDRSG (A charity which rescues Dacshunds from the meat trade and puppy farms in Asia), animal welfare is something I am very passionate about 🫶
I work from home full time and I am self employed so I can be very flexible with hours & days of visits.  I have a full clean UK driving license - I strap Marley in using a harness which clips into the seat belt and I am more than happy to transport your pets. 
I'm extremely reliable, trustworthy and happy to provide references 😊 also fully DBS checked ✔️ 
I can also do little jobs around the house where required such as bringing in mail, watering plants, administering medicine to your pet etc. 
I will send regular updates and photos and spend time with your pet (not just rushing in/out for a feed). 
Look forward to hearing from you and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions x

Lavinia has been an outstanding cat sitter from the second I contacted her. All the way through the process she's been friendly and done the job perfectly. She's sent lovely videos and photos and let me know of issues before they've arisen. I will definitely be booking again!

Excellent experience - great communication, conscientious visit beforehand, and took excellent care of our cat, who was happy and relaxed when we returned. Thank you, Lavinia!
