About Lucy

Hi, my name is Lucy and as a pet owner I understand the importance of finding someone reliable and trustworthy to look after them when going away on holiday.

Having owned pets all of my life including cats and dogs going away can often be a huge headache when you can’t find someone suitable to look after you’re beloved animals and this is how I first found out about Pawshake. I have had some incredible individuals looking after my cats over the years and after deciding not to go back into teaching after having my first baby I decided I’d sign up and become a pet sitter myself as not only did I think to myself what a great job it would be, it would also be a great excuse to get me out the house.

Having recently left teaching I am CRB checked and have over 30 years experience in looking after a range of different animals including cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, mice and topical fish.

If you choose me as your pet sitter each visit I make to your house will last at least 30 minutes for cat feeding and for dog walking and feeding at least 40 minutes. During this time I will:

  • Provide fresh food and water to your pet(s)
  • Clean food and water bowls
  • Clean litter tray if looking after cats
  • Play with your pets
  • Bring in the mail
  • Water house plants if required.
  • Empty the waste/recycling bin
  • Make sure the refuse bin is out for collection which includes bringing it back in
  • Send text messages / WhatsApp’s or email updates of your pet with pictures 2 - 3 times a week or more if required.
  • Pick suitable locations for dog walking
  • based on owners recommendations.

  • Always ensure your house is fully secure before leaving it after each visit.
  • Before finalising your booking with me I will also visit your home to ensure you have met me and are happy to allow me to look after your pets. It is also important that I have met you and your pets and gained all the required information needed to successfully look after them during your absence. During that meeting I will require information about feeding, any medical requirements of your pets and the vets you are registered with. However, you will be under no obligation to hire me at that point.

    Lucy was brilliant - she was super friendly to the cats (and us!) when they first met and remembered them from their profile pictures! Lucy sent us daily updates and kept in touch while we were away. We would definitely book Lucy again and recommend her to everyone - thank you Lucy!
