About Sheila

Hello Fellow Animal Lovers!

My name is Sheila, and I would love to become your returning house sitter or I can do 1 or 2 home visits a day. For home visits I will spend a minimum of an hour but probably more knowing me...!

I have been a house and pet sitter for many years in Greece, when I looked after my neighbours dogs and cats and since then I have done so many times for friends and friends of friends.

I have fed, paid for to be neutered and given medication to the local stray cats in Crete, taking them to my local Greek vet who knows me very well. When I eventually relocated back to the UK I took as many of my stray cats as I could to Germany to be rehomed before I left. I miss each and every one of them to this day. I miss looking after all of my animals over the years and my dream is to one day return to Crete to help the stray cats.

I have 20+ years of experience of looking after dogs and cats especially nervous and shy ones as my last cat, Bobby was shy and didn't like loud noises so I am used to being patient and quiet and giving reassurance and space so your pets can come to me when they are ready to, or are given plenty of cuddles and play time if this is what your pet prefers.  

Check out my reviews in the photo gallery from my previous pet parents who have all kindly asked me to be their return pet sitters : ) I really do love what I do!

I will come and meet you for a free Meet & Greet after you contact me so we can go over your pets needs and care and preferred routine and for your pet and I to get to know each other.  

It's always preferable for your pet to see a familiar face so if you would like me to be your returning pet sitter/home visits or as a one off that's also fine.

I will make sure your pets are fed and watered, given their medication, and kept as much as possible to their usual routine and all the love and rubs and tickles they want or I will just stay still and sit with your pet if this makes them feel more reassured and secure.

I am fortunate to have lots of free time and energy to look after your fur babies until you get home so do give me a call as I would love to help you out : )

Many thanks for reading! Sheila x

House Sitting

Sheila was very professional and caring towards my elderly cat and dog. I was particularly pleased with the photos that she sent me of walking daisy and looking after molly. I would highly recommend her as an excellent house sitter/pet carer for my animals. I would not hesitate to use her again.

Sheila was great! We felt very confident going away knowing that Shelia was caring for our pets, making sure that their routines were as close to normal as possible and giving them lots of time.

She also watered the pot plants and fetched in the bins - those little extras that make going away easier.
