About Nicola

My husband and I have both grown up with pets as children. These include dogs cats guinea pigs hamsters and rabbits. Our own beloved family cat Pixie passed away last year aged 18 yrs and our beloved Springer Spaniel Molly passed away at the beginning of this year aged 16yrs. We loved all of our pets over the years especially Molly. Great company and many great memories over the years, we miss her.

I am 57 and work in a primary school supporting pupils with all kinds of needs from family support to pupils with EHCPs. Currently living in Buckinghamshire I love the outdoors, long walks especially around the coast and socialising. My husband David, 56,is a retired Police Officer who now works from home for a housing association. Between us we have six grown up children ranging from 17 to 32 yrs old.


We love weekends away and exploring new places and now looking to travel more and see different parts of the country while enjoying the company of new pets and meeting new people. Hence why we are here on Pawshake satisfying our love for animals while supporting owners who need to be away from their pets but with the knowledge they are being well looked after and cared for. 

We would be able to do weekend sits (Friday eve - Sunday eve- reasonable distance) and school holidays. We will always keep you up to date whilst we care for your pets via messages and photos.

Look forward from hearing from you and your pets soon.

This was the first time I’d used a cat sitter, Nicola was great, she spent time with my cat at each visit giving her fuss and cuddles, she also sent me some pictures each time which was reassuring for me, I would definitely use Nicola again, thank you

Nicola was friendly and professional. We felt we left our cat in good hands. She sent us regular updates and photos. We will be using her services again in the future.
