I absolutely adore animals; I have (I want to say owned but I think we all know they own us) had cats my whole life (family pets mostly). Velvet however is my first kitty that is purely 'mine' if you will. Cats absolutely can't be owned I think we all know that! Velvet is my fur baby, she is incredibly important to me. I am the kind of person who stops in the street and pets cats. I can't help it. I absolutely love them. It would be a pleasure to cat sit/look after your kitty and you can be assured i'll do a wonderful job and enjoy it as much as them. Plus I'll give them so many cuddles. I feel I have left the dogs out! I certainly didn't mean too. They say you're a cat or a dog person but I love them both. I must be honest I don't think my cat is as excited to see me at the end of the day as I am to see her; dogs however! Isn't it wonderful when you get home and they're all excited like they haven't seen you for weeks?! I think animal care in general is wonderful and therapeutic, dog walking is the ultimate therapy. Just you and the dog in the big wide world and breathing in the fresh air. I have been around Staffies the majority of my life as my aunt has always had them; there is a great photo of me as a 4 year old being licked and slobbered all over on the floor! I'll have to dig that out some time! The point I want to get across is I love animals, spending time with them and caring for them! In my day job I work in the wonderful NHS as an Occupational Therapist working people with Learning Disabilities, which I absolutely adore. I appreciate you looking at my profile and trusting me to look after your fur babies! As added safety as an NHS employee working directly with vulnerable people this means I am regularly DBS checked (which you're more than welcome to see if you would like as I'd be coming to your home, and I appreciate that gives great trust). I'm a passionate person and I'm very trustworthy, this may give added reassurance which is why I'm offering this too . I love working with the people that I do, however if I had not followed this path I know I would be working with animals no question!
Laura provided a great service, checking in daily to feed my 2 cats and sending me pictures while I was on holiday. Would definitely recommend.
Very good contact with Laura. My cat is very shy by nature, but she got on well with Laura. I am really happy to find someone worth trusting to take care of my cat. I really appreciate receiving photos of her while I was away. Will keep Laura as pet sitter on a regular basis.
Because I have 'owned' cats my whole life I know how to treat them well and the care and 'little things' they need. For example, cats are less likely to drink water if it is near their food! Cats are allergic to lillies. Cats cannot eat avacado (I don't know why you'd give them an avacado but its a fun fact!) Research also shows that cats respind better to women than men! Who knows why! I can also generally tell the mood of a cat by their body language (ears and tail mostly). As I said I have had kitties my whole life and i've watched a lot of shows about them!
