About Tamara

I'm a professional, working in the tech industry, formerly based u Stoke Newington in London, currently 'in between addresses'. At the moment, I can only offer longer term house sitting services, 10+ days, no drop in visits, I'm afraid. 

(Btw the longer the sit, the lower the price of sitting services. I can also provide you with additional house and pet sitting reviews from other platforms, I'm still relatively new to this one)    

--


I've been surrounded by cats my whole life. I spent my childhood 'adopting' all the strays, barn and neighbours' kitties. I've owned 3 cats of my own (all rescues), fostered 14 of them and cat-sat around 15.

Rescues and fosters that came to me were often in a bad state, either bottle babies and required 24hr care, or injured and sickly, recovering from a surgery or trauma, often very scared.

I have cleaned their wounds, changed their bandages, applied and administered medicine and found them homes (or adopted them!)

(If you have a dog, budgie, hamster, bearded dragon or guinea pig, in addition to the cat, I have experience there, too!)

I don't think there was ever an animal I didn't like and/or didn't get along. I can read their body language well and respect their autonomy and space.

I always send owners daily updates, photos and videos as a reassurance of their pet's well-being and so they don't miss them as much! 

I don't have my own car so I'm afraid I can only do jobs where I have access to public transport. (I have a clean driving licence if you want to leave the car for my use) 

I'm available late mornings afternoons and evenings. I can do overnight stays and weekends. 

I can administer medication and brush animals (but not proper grooming). 

I've been managing holiday properties for years so your home is in good hands. I will also take care of your mail and plants. 

I'm a very practical and resourceful person, and can easily solve and fix many unexpected problems around the house and use common sense regarding safety.

As a freelancer, all I need is my laptop and I can easily work from your home full time.
