Hi, My name is Sarah and I have loved animals all my life!
I have three wonderful cats and a little chihuahua named Eddy.
My life is pretty much my cats and my dog and I love to give them the very best in life. I love taking Eddy for his daily walks and have had a lot of fun in making food puzzles for my pets (which they love!)
I love dogs and cats just the same, but I have a special interest in cat psychology because I feel like there is not as much knowledge dealing with cat behavior as there is for dogs. I have studied endlessly on cat behavior and of course have learned a lot from my own. I am a qualified vet nurse and I am especially interested in nutrition and behavior. The reason I have chosen to do pet sitting is that I feel like I work amazingly with animals on a more personal level. I find all their different quirks and personalities fascinating and I am very understanding of nervous cats and dogs.
I get a lot of self-satisfaction when I do gain their trust and am extremely patient with them as I highly respect and understand the process it takes for a cat or dog to overcome their anxieties. I also like knowing that I can help people out without them needing to worry about taking them out of their environment and into a boarding place.
I think it is such a great idea that animals can stay at home and avoid the unnecessary stress of being taken to a new environment with lots of other animals boarding beside them.
Now they can still remain at home amongst their familiar smells and routine.
The services I would offer would first listen to what you the owner wants and just to describe your daily routine so I can keep it as normal as possible for your pets. I would also ask if there are any special diet and the amount in which you feed and just if they have any specific medical conditions such as diabetes so I am aware that their medical condition remains stable. Being a former Vet Nurse I will use the same method with a record chart that I have designed to record your pets feeding, drinking and toileting to keep track of their overall health.
Most importantly I will follow all of your rules and specific requests because after all, you know your pet the best :)
I can give medication if needed and as well as feeding and cleaning for your pet. I will also take your pet for a walk and provide playtime as well as brushing and LOTS of cuddles :D
I am also more than happy to do anything else that I may have missed here if you have an enquiry.
Sarah was great with out dogs! One of them is overly friendly, and the other is not very happy with strangers, but Sarah took it all in her stride and we came home to very happy dogs.
Sarah is amazing, my little puppy loves her! She’s incredibly flexible with her times and very knowledgeable about animals - replying and helping with any questions or concerns I may have. So pleased that I have found her to pet sit!
