About Karen

Having four cats of varying ages from 3 to 16 plus two energetic dogs and a variety of furry grandchildren, and understanding how hard it is to find a reliable and responsible pet-sitter when you need one I decided to offer my services as a local sitter to help out where I can!

I took early retirement earlier this year after 32 years as a teacher and can now find the time to spend popping in to feed and play with your pets when you are away on holiday or are just tied up for the day and can’t get home in time for feeds.

Having worked in a professional capacity for so long you can rest assured I am reliable, responsible and trustworthy. I have six gorgeous pets of my own and will always treat yours with the love and attention animals deserve plus a little extra as they’ll no doubt be missing you! I'm used to dealing with both the young, the elderly and the downright anti-social as my own brood of cats have all been adopted ferals, two hand-fed every hour in the early days and now both 16! Your pets will be well looked after if you decide to leave them in my care and I’m happy to pop in to feed and provide company as you wish.

As Pawshake charge me 19% of my fee for an introduction, and tax is a further 20% plus petrol at roughly £1 per mile, I have had to adjust my fees from May to make it viable, apologies for this but I have no choice if I am to continue, thanks )

Karen is amazing! We went away for 10 days and left our one-eyed cat Pimlico in her care. We have a house camera for security and we were able to see the time and attention that Karen gave to Pimlico.

We were absolutely overwhelmed with how well Karen cared for Pimlico and would highly recommend her services to others.

Karen is a true pet lover, professional and caring.

Specific Skills

< 1 years of experience

Care of elderly cats is a speciality as two of my own are now 16 and my previous pair were both 20 when they passed away but I’m also used to ferals and kittens and have a lifetime’s experience of looking after them
