About Karen

Pet lover that has owned and cared for pets most of my life. I have a quiet calm, a manner which helps calm anxious, shy or timid pets.

Housesitting anywhere within 30 mins drive of Redcliffe. Pet Visting within 15 min drive of Carlisle.

My background and experience.

From childhood I always had cats and dogs, I had horses throughout my teen years and had aviary birds, fish, and a rabbit at other times as well. I have had lots of cats over the years including several Birmans and large dogs including German shepherds and most recently a mastiff cross. The Birman cats required grooming, and I have sat ragdoll cats that also required a regular grooming routine. From primary school, I have been a pet visitor and taken care of all sorts of animals and gardens whilst our neighbours were away. At times, besides cats and dogs, this included bottle feeding baby lambs and goats, feeding chickens, collecting eggs, and watering gardens for weeks at a time, and I loved every minute.

I have pet sat an anxious labrador and we instantly hit it off and she showed no signs of anxiety whilst her family were away for 4 weeks. I look a couple of times a year now for up to 6 weeks at a time. I took in a friend's cat for 7 months whilst they moved house and re-established themselves and fell in love with him also. I petsit and housesit regularly for friends and work colleagues also and have built a rapport with all their animals.

I can also visit your pets at home once or twice daily whilst you are away, showering them in attention with lots pats, chats and cuddles.

I will also water your pot plants if required. I am interested in pet sitting in your home as I do not have any pets of my own at the moment and want to help people enjoy their time away, without worry, knowing their pets and homes are being looked after with care and love. 😁

I have always owned my own homes so can take good care of your pets, home and gardens for you whilst you enjoy some worry-free time away. I do work full time but have no other commitments so can devote all the rest of my time to your pets.

I work in Redcliffe so I would prefer to pet/house sit within about 30 mins of there to ensure I have as much time with your pets as possible. I am keen to meet you and your pets and discuss my suitability to take care of your loved pets and home.

House Sitting
Cherina, 2021-06-16

Karen took wonderful care of my cat and house over a long weekend that I was away. There was no shortage of challenges that weekend (including a Covid lockdown the day after I left!) but Karen took it all in her stride and went above and beyond to make sure Mishka had the very best care at all times. She sent regular updates, and I felt completely at ease being away and having Karen staying in my home. I will definitely be booking Karen again soon and highly recommend her to anyone needing a caring and professional pet sitter.

House Sitting
Siobhan, 2021-01-24

Karen was lovely to deal with and obviously a very experienced dog sitter. She got through the week with our sometimes difficult dog without issue, the house was left in tip top condition and we can only highly recommend Karen to anyone who needs a reliable and highly competent sitter. Thank you Karen!
