Hello, I’m in my early sixties and have loved animals all my life.
We had a wire-haired terrier called William when I was a girl and I adored him.
It was a terrible loss when he died.
I used to help out with training and exercising the horses at the local stables when I was a teenager – great fun and invaluable for life lessons!
I was a musician in an orchestra for many years and travelled a lot but once I settled down in the UK I was excited to start having cats live with me.
I’ve been living with cats for nearly 30 years.
I’d love to have a dog, but my life is centred around music, so I couldn’t give them a decent and reliable lifestyle.
I regularly help out with some of my friends doing dog walks for them (the black spaniel and the border collie in the photos).
I can't show you many pictures of me with animals, as I live on my own, so that's difficult to manage but all the pictures are of animals that I have cared for, or lived with and certainly loved! I currently have a beautiful loving 9 year cat called Madrigal (he sings to me! Hence the name) I've had him since he was a kitten and a pupil didn't want him anymore.
I was widowed a few years ago and I really appreciate being around animals.
For home visits for cats and/or dogs,
I know how stressful it is to go away and worry about your beloved pets, indeed
I discovered Pawshake by using them to tend to my cats when I was away earning a living,
so I will keep in touch with you by text and send photos if you want that.
I will play with them and talk with them and give them lots of love and attention.
I’m happy to groom them as well.
I can also tidy up your post, turn lights on and off and draw your curtains/blinds for you and put any rubbish out.
Being a house plant fanatic, I can water your plants as and when necessary.
I don't smoke so there's no danger of that happening in your home.
I’m a driver, so I can travel a reasonable distance (roughly 6 miles) for 30 minute home visits. I'm also available for dog walks, these can be for 30 minutes or an hour. Naturally, if we're having a heatwave I'll walk them when it's cooler and keep them well hydrated.
I’m also more than happy to look after hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs and fish.
I’m pretty flexible, I can visit most mornings, afternoons and evenings.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
If you have any questions feel free to get in touch.
Great person to have come and look after the kitties!
We were happy with Sarah who took amazing care of our boys whilst we were away on holiday for a week. As cat owners who’s world revolves around our boys we were blown away with how well she looked after them and her communication throughout. We can say for sure that they will never go back to a kennel again. Would recommend Sarah she very genuine and caring person who loves animals :) thank you Sarah !
