*COVID 19: I am still taking bookings. I am keen to help any way I can in these difficult times, if you need to make a last-minute booking or require something out of the ordinary please let me know and I will do my best to help. I am happy to provide a socially distanced meet and greet and we can make arrangements to meet your requirements and to keep everyone safe*
I am a big animal lover, I thoroughly enjoy getting to know their unique personalities and believe that their company is therapeutic and hugely rewarding.
I have experience in looking after cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, budgerigars, fish, chickens, and hamsters at home and walking dogs, I am happy to look after any similar animals.
I will treat your pets in the same way as I do my own, with love, care, and attention. I can guarantee your pets will be in friendly and trustworthy hands. I am more than happy to fit around your pet's schedule to provide them with the continuity. I am happy encouraging your pet to have a good run around and equally happy to sit and provide cuddles dependent on their needs. I am understanding of your pet's individual character, I can be a calming presence for shy pets and a playful one for the more confident ones.
I will always be respectful of your home and belongings, I am happy to switch lights on and off, pull curtains, water plants and take bins out for you whilst visiting your home and caring for your animals. I am happy to send you updates and pictures of your pets during your holidays to reassure you that all is well while you enjoy your time away.
I offer home visits where I visit your pet/s for up to 30 minutes, feed, clean cages/litter/let them outside and play with them, I can provide visits once or twice a day. I have been lucky enough to recently secure full-time employment so my visit times are now limited to early mornings and evenings during the week, however I always do my best to be flexible and can tailor visits to meet your needs. At the moment I cycle to my pet sitting jobs so I am unfortunately limited to the Runcorn area or close by for the extra cost of local public transport.
*I am no longer moving to Bristol in September so I am very happy to accept any bookings in the Runcorn/Widnes area for the forseeable future. Please get in contact*
Josie's level of efforts and commitment to taking care of our cats were exceptional. It was clear from the off that she adopted an excellent attitude and fully understood the importance of what it meant to us that our cats where not only fed but attended to emotionally whilst we were on holiday. We received numerous messages, pictures and videos that clearly demonstrated her interaction with our cats which eased our anxieties massively! We could not recommend her more and we fully appreciate her outstanding service’s.
Josie is lovely and friendly, and made a connection with Tammy straight away. It is obvious she loves animals. I was a bit nervous as I'd not left her with anyone but family before, but I'd not hesitate to book Josie again. So much better for Tammy than a cattery, however high the standards.
I have Diplomas in Animal Welfare (including First Aid) and Feline Behaviour and Psychology.
I am DBS checked.
