About Marilyn

I have been around animals all my life. Growing up on a plot we had dogs, cats and rabbits as pets. I love my pets like my daughter and she knows the most important thing is being around animals for wellbeing and lasting friendship. I have experience with small pet dogs and cats to older pets and skills to look after and nature them like my own children. I have looked after my friends animals while their away in my house for ten days or longer enjoying outdoors long walks and trips to the beach. I have my own pets that stay with me and my cat is 17 years old now. We can take care of your pets and have long walks and fun.

My daughter is 15 years old so she helps me with the walks and I find the animals really enjoy the run in the park with her both of us are very active and enjoy a fun run and walks around the parks. Plenty to choose from in Croydon and surrounding areas. I drive so taking the pets too a big park isn’t a problem we have Lloyds park, Mitcham Common, Purley fields, Farthing downs, Beddington Park, just give name a few depending on area. I also foster cats so used to dealing with all types of animals.

In a previous booking, we were looking after a dog, fish and cat and managed to save the fish’s life even though I know nothing about fish. My daughter and I discovered the fish very unwell in our time of looking after it and found it gasping for air and thought that was quite odd and researched on google what it meant and when we learned the truth about it we were quite worried. Instantly we informed the owners and asked what we should do and researched as well and found that all we needed to do was change the tank water. When we did the fish was happy and swimming. 1 day later the fish was sitting in one side of the tank on the bottom and so we researched what it meant and apparently it meant something was poisoned in the water and the fish wasn’t able to breathe properly. Google told us to take the fish out and put it into better water conditions. With no hesitation we took the fish out using a fish net and put it into a bowl of cold water and gave it some food and it seemed much happier in there and was able to breathe. When the owners came back they sought to the problem and bought the fish a new tank. It is happy now and has survived! If there is fish within your household were quite happy to watch the fish and feed them, which isn’t chargeable.

I do not have any restrictions to which dogs/dog I take on Eg. Size. Lots of love and attention will be given to your pet including long walks, play time and treats!
