About Svitlana

Hello there ! *Currently on hold till mid June due to displaced heelbone fracture 🥲*

I'm Lana (or Svitlana if you prefer full name) and I'm 31 y.o . neurologist from Ukraine that is currently preparing to take PLAB test to be able practice in the UK. My little family have been living in Brighton and Hove for 2+ year now.

Im autistic ( still in a waiting list hehe) and my safe and beloved areas always has been animals and plants ☘️.

Due to heart condition I would be keen to cover up to 3.6 miles around area where I live (bn3 4eb).

I am mostly here to be your pet sitter: cats, rats,birds , kittens who require attention during the day while you are at work etc. Can do home visits to your place to check how is doggy staying alone during the day too. 

🐕 I also could walk your dog ,play fetch , go for some longer walks(up to 3-4 hours - can be discussed prior booking and payment, i would say that my 1 standard walk is around 45 m to 1,5 h depends on weather conditions and your request)- just no hills or stairs 😅(in this case, usually my area is around 2 miles, but feel free to contact me as I might be in your area for catsitting or other arrangements) .If your dog is going off leash please be sure to give me full info about it(recall  reaction, emergency recall word etc .. I am happy to play fetch but need to be sure that it is safe for your dog and dogs around 💙) 

Dog companionship during the day at your place also could be discussed (depends on time you need me). 

I am not able to do dogs day care as my older cat has PTSD and it would be too much stress for her, sorry . 

I'm a non smoker, vegan, tidy and quiet person who would be in a corner with pets at every party 😀.


Safety :

Please, let me know if you or anyone in your household has COVID or feel unwell so I can wear a face mask during taking the dog for a walk as I would meet other people and do not want to be a transmitter. Please feel free to ask if you want me to wear a face mask during greet& meet etc.


I'm voting for safety and healthy experience so I do care if my clients ( animals) are up to date with their vaccines and flee/tic & worm treatments , including fully indoor pets💙 

Stay safe ✨


I have two cats!

Zelda is 1,5y.o. tuxedo shorthair kitto who is a professional performer of evening zoomies and fetching toysMmoreover she would bring toys to you when in mood to play, even if you were still sleeping. She is not really a hug-cat while do demand loudly her daily back/butt scratches and forehead bumping ..aand come to sleep on me when think that I'm asleep xD

Liennael or Lina is 8y.o . tortoise longhair judging chunk-pyramidal cat ). Still very playful though.Loves to play with fiddly worm and feather teaser wands and tag with Zelda. Lina is definitely a lapcat- as soon as you just start bending your legs to sit down she would be there : SLOOOWLY PUTTING HERSELF AS CLOSE AS SHE COULD TO YOUR CHEST AND THEN FALLS ASLEEP IN ONE SECOND.

I grew up with a wonderful and intelligent cat Liza ,she passed away at 16. After that, in a few years I adopted a kitty with multiple congenital defects after her cat-mom passed away during labour. That was hard but full of love and tenderness 4 years.

I'm also in love with rats, mice, hamsters,lizards, dogs, ( actually, I could easily stuck here, listing all kinds of animals)))

As to hobbies I'm playing piano, painting, do some embroidery, like to spend time with friends playing board games as well as going to the walk or bouldering /long sword session.Oh, and I also taking violin classes now,and definitely obsessed with plants! 😅

Oh, I would say I'm a great cat entertainer ( u know.. If you would not play a cat, cat would find itself what to play with and it's not always smth U wish cat to play with)).. I probably have a degree in a litterbox archeology 😅 I would not be able to stop talking to your cat, especially if it's chatty! Could pet, cuddle, talk ,give treats or just sit there together- whatever the catto would be keen to. 



  Due to heart condition I would be keen to cover  up to 2 miles for  dog walking( still feel free to me as i might be in your area) and up to 3.6 miles for petsitting service around area where I live (bn3 4eb) .

As I am in a spectrum I am always looking for an after visit/walk few words in chat is everything ok and dog/cat happy about walk ( with cat sitting it's not possible obviously until you're back)) as I always do want all my animal clients ( first of all them and then of course owners))) be happy. Would also be glad to hear suggestions if anything else you want to add or change etc.


Thank you for considering me as your pet sitter!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lana or book her again. Good communication and we felt that our cat was in great hands while we were away.

Overall amazing!! I don’t play with my cat as much as she did, he was very happy and looked after. She really knows how to find a way to every cat’s heart 💜
