Hi all, My name is Cat, I am 31 and I live in Downend, Bristol, not far from Frenchay. I have been a pet and house sitter for just over 8 years now, which I absolutely love.
I am lucky enough to have some lovely regular clients now and having changed some shifts at my part time job,
I have found myself with more availability!
I have looked after a variation of animals which has given me a lot of experience, including rats, guinea pigs, dogs, cats and rabbits. I have taken care of elderly pets with specific requirements and medical needs, and also young pets that are full of energy and still learning.
I mainly offer housesitting where I will stay in your home and almost take over your role whilst you are away. I have found that animals seem less distressed when they are in their own home and find it easier to adapt to a stranger lookign after them :-) I will always come by to visit you before the sit begins, to ensure you are comfortable with who will be staying in your home, and to ensure your pet feels comfortable around me. I also offer day visits where I can come by once or twice a day to feed and check on your pet. I will stay for around 30 minutes per visit and will play with your pet and make sure they are perfectly happy before I leave.
I first got involved with animal care when I moved back home and missed my dog, so I began taking care of other peoples whilst I didn;t have mine. It is wonderful to get to know people's pets and watch them grow. I have been in the position where an animal needed an operation whilst their owners were away, and thankfully she was great and recovered quickly, but it was wonderful to know that I had been able to be there to ensure she was okay and took quick action.
Cat was really good with our dog, cat and tortoises. They loved spending time with her and I really appreciated all the photo messages while we were away. I absolutely recommend Cat as a pet sitter.
I am DBS checked as I also spend time with foster children, and I work with disabled people.
