About Natalie

Please note: I can only attend meet and greets after the 13th. As I use public transport I am able to get to locations around Moor Grange, West Park, Beckett Park, Headingley, Hyde Park, Woodhouse and City Centre

Hi! I am Natalie. I have lived with animals my entire life; from a lizard to cats, guinea pigs to goats, it's fair to say I have extensive pet care experience. Furthermore, I have over five years' voluntary work as a stable hand where I was responsible for the care of the horses - whether it be grooming or providing hay. In addition, I have nine months' experience volunteering as a ranger at a zoo! My passion and love for animals and nature have driven me to pursue a Masters degree in Biodiversity and Conservation which I am currently working towards.

Regarding dogs, I have had plenty of experience caring for them - including walking and home sitting. I will make sure that I provide all the attention and care your dog requires. I have had experience with troublesome rescue dogs.

I have had pet cats my entire life, therefore I have extensive knowledge of cat care and welfare. I am experienced in caring for elderly cats and those with special and/or strict requirements. In particular, I have had plenty of experience caring for cats with gingivitis, cancer and kidney disease. I can administer a variety of medications from pills to pastes, and I will make sure that your cat is pampered and happy whilst you are away. I can provide plenty of enrichment and play and I will not leave until they are content and well-fed!

I also have experience caring for other animals! When I was younger I owned a leopard gecko and I have looked after a gargoyle gecko and two budgies.

Below are some reviews I have received from different pet care platforms:

"Natalie has looked after my elderly cat Max on a very regular and ongoing basis. Max required regular and accurate dosages of veterinary prescribed medicine, which Natalie administered very professionally. Max was always seeking cuddles and hugs and Natalie would go out of her way to make sure that he always felt loved and settled at home when we were not there. The care Natalie provided spanned from just one day to a week or more when we were away. I always felt very confident that Natalie would take great care of Max and I felt secure leaving him in her care. Nothing was too much trouble; emptying litter trays, grooming and combing, ensuring fresh water, general feeding, administering medicine etc and lots of TLC." - Jan F

“Natalie is a true animal lover. Her ability to befriend all kinds of animals is always astonishing. She has looked after our family's rescue dog, Max, on a few different occasions now and she has been great. Being a rescue, Max can be nervous around new people, but he got along with Natalie immediately, and now they are best of friends. He even gets excited when he knows Natalie will be taking care of him." - Adam L

I am so pleased to have met Natalie. This was the first time leaving my two cats and I was very anxious but they were in the most capable of hands. She went above and beyond what was expected and really genuinely cared about my kitty's well-being. My older cat is very wary of new people but he clearly felt safe around Natalie and I was sent lots of super cute photos of both of them which really made my day. She did everything exactly as I asked and more, even washing up so I had nothing to do when I got home. Thank you so so much Natalie, I appreciate all your help 😊

Natalie did a wonderful job at taking care of our much loved Kitty while we spent a long weekend away! I really couldn't recommend her more. She's clearly an animal lover and I could tell right away that she had a really lovely way with Dodger. She kept us updated with detailed Whatsapp messages and pictures at each visit, which we absolutely loved. Thank you so much Natalie!
