About Crystal

My name is Crystal, I am 39 years old and I am an animal lover through and through. I grew up with three British short-haired cats named Willow, Mickey and Charlie (looked after them as kittens up to adult cats), two terrapins, 27 budgerigars and a guinea pig. I am therefore very familiar with the needs of these different types of animals, with a special fondness for cats. 

 I have been pet sitting for over 9 years throughvarious onlinee sites, including Pawshake, but have looked after my animals for over 25 years, including my own pets. My petsitting roles have included looking after Habibi - a Persian cat, Benji the Turkish Angora, Pepe and Bella both British short-haired cats, Pippin - a Persian/British short-haired mix, Sushi - a Persian kitten, Sophie a tri-coat short-hair, Tinker and Rascal - two Bengal cats, Bobbie - a 16 old tabby and Flea and Fig two British short hairs.

I am a writer by trade and am very interested in environmental causes (sustainability, marine conservation, eco-friendly and the like) and enjoy supporting charitable causes and research centres. One of my most recent roles was a placement at the Galbokka sea turtle research and conservation centre in Sri Lanka in December 2022, where I looked after injured turtles and those in rehabilitation.

I would be delighted to provide regular pet and house-sitting services to owners in need.

Even though my cat Sophie had just had a major life-saving operation, I knew I could entrust her to Crystal. Sophie is totally happy with Crystal (and so am I!).

Crystal tuned into Sophie's temperament purrfectly! She spent quality time with her and communicated with regular pics and observations. Crystal is very caring. 😸

I am fully familiar with the needs of different types of cats, having grown up with three cats in my house and all family members also having their own. I have sat for numerous types of cats from British short-haired, Persian, Turkish Angola (with Trusted House Sitters) and have given company at a rescue centre in Dubai (Dianna's cats) to Egyptian Mau's, Arabian Mau's and tabby cats. I also had a friend who had a Bengal cat who I regularly played with. I understand their need for space, their need for stimulation, their curiosity and to always let them smell you first, their love of boxes and soft materials and letting them decide when they want to be beside you
