About Iris

Hello,

I am Iris and I just recently moved from the US to the UK. I have had pets my entire life and couldn't imagine my life without them. I have had cats, rabbits, dogs, and goldfish and I was always the one that was not afraid of new animals and comfortable with approaching animals that might be scared or injured. All of my pets have been rescues. I also studied vet technology and volunteered at a couple of my local shelters and interned at veterinary hospitals so I am comfortable with giving your pets their medications and doing light daily grooming.

I also did dog sitting for families that went away for a couple of days. If you are looking for someone to care for your pets as they care for their own then I am the person you are looking for. 

I prefer if you leave me a guide sheet so that we know we are both on the same page and there are no miscommunication errors. Your pet will know that you found someone to care for and play with them while you are at work, on your trip, or on a long errand. 

I will feed your pet according to your schedule and walk if requested for a minimum of 30 minutes (more if discussed). We will play with their favorite toys and rest when pet needs rest. My house visits would consist of a minimum of 1 hour visits, collecting your post and taking out rubbish, and as a plant owner myself I will gladly keep an attentive and caring eye on your plants. I believe I inherited my late grandmother's green thumb. 

I hope to see some of your pets soon!

Iris looked after my cat Loki while I was on holiday for a week.

She was trustworthy & kept in contact when she popped in with updates on Loki & photos.

Gave me peace of mind that someone was going to be here each day to feed/water & care, play with him whilst I was away.

Would recommend her to anyone & I will be in contact next time I go away.

Thank you! 😃😺
