About Karen

I'm a happy/ kind/ very caring and loving lady that will treat your animals like my own. I have always loved animals and I'm a registered RSPCA foster mum with over 12 years of looking after over 50 kittens naming each one before they head back to go up for adoption.

My husband and I have also fostered dogs over the years. I have 4 animals of my own Tyson my little poodle that very sadly lost his sight to glaucoma 4 years ago.

This is what brought me to Pawshake as I was in need of help to look after him.

Our first cat Suzie is a 15-year-old cat very spoilt lady of the house. Caesar 7-year-old Rottie full of cuddles and with such a wiggly bum.!! The newest addition is Tigger my

"Ginger Ninja" full of life/cuddles and loads of kisses.

My animals are my babies and you're will be treated the same.

I will offer you: Updated photo SMS / fresh water refilled on ever visit or any necessary feeding/litterbox emptying/brushing/playtime/cuddles and lots of love. I can also give them medication. I'm happy to collect your mail/water the garden / put bins out. I'm fine with walking big or small dogs. I do work full time so feeding will be early morning or after 4 pm in the afternoon. (School holidays I'm more flexible)

I offer a free meet and greet each new customer so that you can meet me and ask any questions and I will also get to meet your animals to help them become familiar with me.

If you are interested in my services or have any questions please contact me as my job is to make you feel okay while you go away and have a great holiday without the stress of worrying about your babies.

Karen was wonderful! We had a last minute change of plans that didn’t allow much time to organise things but Karen responded quickly and organised a meet and greet. She was lovely and I knew immediately Murphy would be in good hands. Karen came over everyday to give Murphy his food and water as well as cuddles. She even took our bins out for us realising it was bin day which I’d completely forgotten about! When we got home Murphy was extremely happy and content and there we no signs of him digging or chewing anything out of boredom or stress.

Thank you Karen, will definitely use your services again in the future ☺
