About Holly

Hi!

My name is Holly, I'm 20 years old and I currently live in Southampton. I'm a student at Solent University going into my 2nd year of Film Production and during my search for part time work I discovered pet sitting. I have always lived with pets, sadly losing my first cat to a road accident around 12 years ago. I was devasted at losing my best friend, but when my parents revealed that we would be getting two kittens I was excited that I could provide another cat in need with a wonderful, loving forever home. I have now had the pleasure of looking after my cat Scratchy for many many years and couldn't imagine life without her. She lives with my parents and enjoys a huge garden and field to prowl around in (when not asleep under the hedge!), as well as countless hugs and kisses from me!

As well as my experience looking after cats I also took on two gerbils this year. We bought them from a woman who could no longer look after them, built them a much bigger cage and take care of them with care and compassion. They're extremely cute and seem to love having a bigger cage with lots of bedding for them to burrow into. Unlike some I do not expect them to be just something cute to look at, but respect them as animals in their own right, making sure their cage is properly cleaned and set up in such a way that suits their natures and enriches their lives.

If you were to choose me as your pet sitter I would bring the same amount of love and care to looking after your animals as I do my own. I miss having my pets around me whilst I am at university and being a pet sitter gives me an oppurtunity to have the much missed contact with animals that I desire. I also love meeting new animals and discovering their individual personalities and therefore think I would make a perfect choice of pet sitter for your furry (or non furry) friends.

Holly looked after my cat for a week while I was on holiday. My cat was shy and hid from her most days but Holly fed her well and kept me updated regularly. I’d recommend her to anyone else.
