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 for a minimum of 30 mins up to an hour or longer if they would like a walk (if approved by you of course) or playtime in the backyard. Brushing for those that like or need it and lots of chatting and cuddles.

I will also water your pot plants if required. I am interested in pet sitting in your home as I am currently sharing my home with daughter her husband and their children. Due to their allergies, I currently cannot have any pets of my own so I would like to love and care for others whilst helping you out when you can't be home to care for them yourself.

I will maintain your pet's routine, walk the dogs and chat with them constantly ( you know what I mean). 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.

Karen was an amazing pet / house sitter. On return from our 2 week break, the animals were relaxed and my house was immaculate. We will definitely be booking Karen again.

Karen was absolutely amazing at caring for my two cats, never have I felt such a great confidence in someone taking care of them. She constantly provided me with extensive feedback, photos and video updates, she was very warm an I really felt like she genuinely enjoyed getting to know them and taking care of them. Won't hesitate to book her again!
