About Karen

Hello fellow paw lovers! My name is Karen and I am excited to offer pet sitting services in and around Weston-Super-Mare just simply because I love animals! I grew up with cats, dogs, hamsters, horses and chickens! I currently volunteer at Holly Hedge animal sanctuary which I love. I would actually go as far as to say that animals give life meaning for me, I always feel happier when I am around them. I am a proud owner of a rescue cat, whom I actually rescued from the street in Spain.  I have also previously owned a variation of dogs; a Rottweiler/Alsation cross, a Cocker Spaniel and an Otter Hound and therefore am confident handling many breeds of dogs, large and small. I have been pet sitting for approximately 6 months now and absolutely love it. I have experience in medicine administration as one of my cat clients has Diabetes and so needs daily insulin, I am confident with giving medication due to my Nurse background. In the future I would like to change career from Nursing to a career with animals full-time and am therefore in the process of completing courses such as basic animal first-aid and dog training. I would consider myself fortunate to look after your pet. You can be confident that your furry friends are in safe hands with me as due to working for the NHS I already have a full disclosure check. I look forward to hearing from you :)

David, 2023-09-17

Many thanks Karen for looking after Alfie cat. Karen is very kind, very considerate and went out of her way to keep us updated whilst we were away. I thoroughly recommend Karen as a thoughtful and very dedicated pet sitter. Alfie loved the attention he was given and took to Karen immediately. Karen went out of her way to look after Alfie when we were away for the week. He was very well looked after, I cannot recommend Karen highly enough 11 out of 10 Karen, thank you very much, David and Alfie cat.

I believe I am one of those lucky people who has a natural connection with animals which means I am very confident around both big and small animals. I have been a proud dog walker and professional cat cuddler at an animal sanctuary where I gained experience of caring for all types of breeds and also with those that had not had the best start in life. Coming from a nursing background I have a very accommodating manner and therefore can meet the specific needs of the owners and pets that I am lucky to look after. I look forward to meeting you and your special pet soon.
