About Julie

I absolutely adore animals of all kinds, and my family and I have, throughout the years, owned a large variety of animals - including a dog (a gorgeous Westie), cats (a tabby and a tortie), hamsters, rabbits, a gerbil, java finches, tank and pond fish, ducks, I've also looked after pets of friends and family many times. In fact, I tend to prefer animal company(!) and will love and take good care of pets within my charge as if they were my own. I also have experience giving meds to animals, if needed.

I am also a homeowner so, for house-sitting, I will ensure your house is kept safe and secure, and am conscientious to keep the place clean and tidy, and will water plants etc if necessary. 

**PLEASE NOTE** For pet-boarding, I am only taking on cats and small animals at the moment, as our cat Phoebe is very nervous of dogs - we have a four-bedroom house, with two lounges, and a garden, so plenty of space for taking in extra cats/rabbits etc.

I would be very careful to keep to your instructions, and am happy to stay in constant contact, so that you know your pet/s are happy and well, and your home is safe.

I work, remotely, for a classical music consultant part-time (who I've been with for over 20 years!), and I also write part-time as a hobby, so I do enjoy some solitude now and again in order to work on my books - my own children are grown up, so can take care of themselves!

Please note that for house-sitting and dog-walking, I only serve Acton W3 and surrounding areas (Chiswick, Ealing, etc) - you can of course message me to enquire, if you live a little further afield, but I generally don't take bookings that are far away.

I'm happy to talk on the phone, or schedule a video call, or meet in person if you prefer (if you're not too far) - in order to discuss your needs, availability, the work, etc.

I would highly recommend Julie. She did everything possible to help my cat Phoenix settle in quickly. She clearly has a genuine love for all animals, and lots of experience looking after dogs and cats. Julie is a very warm and practical person, and our cat was thoroughly looked after and regularly played with. Julie was completely reliable and also flexible with dates when my plans changed. She sent us regular photos and videos so we could see Phoenix was fine.

Julie is FANTASTIC! My partner and I were nervous about leaving our two cats for so long but Julie made sure we felt comfortable from when we first started talking, throughout our holiday up to when we came to pick them up. She was so lovely with our two babies and kept contact with us on a daily basis to send us updates on how they were doing, including photos and videos, which gave us the peace of mind needed to really enjoy our holiday. Our cats are usually very shy with strangers but they really opened up with Julie, a testament to her character and experience caring for animals. She even introduced them to a new treat (with our consent) which is now an absolute must-buy in our household! We will absolutely be contacting her for future stays.
