Hello I'm Serena
I live in Colton Village LS15 in Leeds and I cover a wide area so please contact me to check... How I tick... Pet wise... I have given up my day job because I love animals so much and just want to care for them, I have always had pets and spoil them all.
I have lived with a beautiful pair of rescued sibling Persian Cats, Smokey and Bandit. Now that's what I call fur! They were very hard work to keep knot free but worth every second... Smokey and Bandit were followed by my lovely Shorn, he was a Brown Toy Poodle who I had the absolute pleasure of loving to bits for 16 years. He left us without a days illness in his life except the day he passed. Not many of us can say that...
Today, I have a beautiful new baby boy who is a Sphynx kitten called Shiver... because he's hairless (haha)...
For the last 10 years before we lost her in Sept 2019 it was my lovely cat Nelly a hairless Sphynx Cat who is again like all my pets, and indeed most pets, I love to bits and miss terribly. I have looked after many animals for friends for their holidays or weekends away, so much so I became a full time Pet Sitter to help others in the same way.
What will I do for fellow pet owners beside loving their pets like my own:
1. A loving friendly greeting when I arrive
2. Litter trays will be cleared every day
3. Fresh Water daily
4. All bowls washed and cleaned before each feed.
5. Texts & photos to let you know how they are.
6. Lots of cuddles and stroking and playing if your Cat would like if not just sit as company for them.
7. Your home will be secured and checked prior to leaving the premises.
8. If required I am able to park away from your home, open and close window covers (2 visits) turn lights on/off (2 visits) and if your bin day falls over the period I am happy to put them out/back for you.
9. I am also happy to water your hanging baskets and pots while you are away as long as it's not Kew Gardens!!
I have been in trusted positions for the majority of my working life and have now decided to take time to do something I would love to do rather than have to do. Having owned my own home for many years I am able to care for your cat/s and your home like my own and check all is in order, play and love them if they are happy to do so. If not I am used to being ignored when it suits Haha. To this end I have decided I would love to take care of your cat/s. ** Please note a DBS Enhanced check (old school CRB Police check) has been carried out.
"For the first time in years we were able to go away for a week without feeling distressed, leaving our Cats in familiar surroundings, being looked after by Serena.
Serena's text message on our first evening was so reassuring which set our minds at ease leaving us to enjoy the rest of the holiday in comfort.
Our Cats although, happy to see us did not seem at all phased by our absence.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Serena and use her services again."

I am so so pleased with how well looked after my babies have been! Constant communication and photos twice a day, regular routine, and for so long as well. I was away for nearly 3 weeks and I have 3 indoor cats and a stray that I look after, and all 4 of them were super happy and healthy when I got home. They didn’t seem phased at all like they usually are when I’m away so that’s a great sign. Couldn’t be happier!
Serena took very good care of our cats and garden animals, stuck to the schedule, sent photos after every visit, watered my indoor plants, changed the litter, changed the bin and even gave a new scratch post to the kids which we are very thankful for! I hope she will remain our petsitter for a very long time!
Due to my own issues in finding a reliable care visitor for my cat, I have decided I would love to help others in a similar position, I am very capable, responsible and loving towards cats and understand totally the worries of leaving them. I would know from experience what you would like to know when away from your Cat and the care and love they need. Once we have met each other and we are happy to go ahead with the booking I will not let you down, you will be able to enjoy your time away with complete confidence that your much loved cat is in safe hands.
