I'm Violet and I've recently finished my masters at the University of Southampton and I'm based at home in Chichester. I currently have 2 lovely rescue guinea pigs - Sasha and Sophie and have had guinea pigs for the last 10 years - both inside, outside and a mixture of both. Over this time, I have built up experience and confidence with small animal care (guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters) including cleaning, feeding, handling and administering medication including several years volunteering at the Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre. More recently I've gained experience in looking after both indoor and outdoor cats and administering oral medication.
At the moment I'm very lucky to walk daily and look after a lovely yorkie and have built up a great relationship with him and his owner over the last 2 years. I've done dog walking and sitting (including overnight) with and without owners being at home. I also have experience with walking and looking after puppies, elderly dogs and more nervous dogs.
I'm always looking to tailor my care to fit each individual pet and their owner and I'm very flexible with the care that I can offer (adhoc, regular, emergency/last minute, holiday) and during the week or at weekends.
I'm happy to do pet-related care including dog walking, dog sitting, home visits (for company/playtime), cat sitting, cat feeding, small animal sitting (very happy to host at our house or yours), small animal visits (feeding, cleaning, administering medication, cuddles!)
I'm based in central Chichester but I'm happy to travel anywhere within a 5-mile radius.
Violet looked after out cat whilst we had a weekend away and did a great job. Good communication at all times and she sent through updates and photos over the weekend. Would happily use her next time we go away.
Very happy with Violet. A very calm caring girl. Henley loves her. Thank you
