About Claire

Hello, my name is Claire, I am 29 years old and I am a registered veterinary nurse

I believe in fear free handling, this means I do not pin or scruff your cat. I believe in gentler methods of medicating such as feeding in a treat, or mixing in milk. If your pet requires any further restraint please let me know, as we can decide on the best course together.

I naturally care about animals and with my diploma and experience I know exactly how to care for patients. I enjoy spending time with animals at work and it would nice to spend time with them in a less clinical environment.

As well as the basics of changing your pets food and water and possibly litter tray, I do like to spend time getting to know them. I like to do little extra bits to earn your pets trust, which can take to some time. I do this by playing, grooming, cleaning, basic training, socialising and cuddling of course. If your pet is very nervous or doesn't like strangers for example, I do not push the boundaries, I wait for them to initiate any contact. 

If you have any worries or concerns please contact me. I aim to offer high care for all animals, whatever age or species. But with my diploma I am also able to medicate and cater for pets with extra needs.

A little bit about me, I have a cat called Louie, a dog called Gus and a tortoise called Dee Dee. I have been nursing full time for 10 years, but spent many years volunteering before this. I have been a Guide and Brownie leader for many years, which I enjoy.

Once again Claire has been a brilliant cat sitter. Both of my cats want to know when I'm going away next so they can see Claire!

Claire is reliable and really cares for my cats, spending time playing with them, which means I have a more relaxing holiday knowing they are in good hands.

Thank you Claire
