Hi there, I'd love to meet you and your pet! My friends take great delight in referring to me as a cat-lady or dog-woman... I've spent a lot of time fostering homeless animals while they wait patiently for FURever homes. I've also previously worked in a dog shelter so have lots of experience with dogs of all kinds and just love every one of them! I'm a qualified vet nurse with additional training in animal behaviour. I'm also a vet student and more than capable of looking after furkids with special needs.
I've lived with dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds, fish and horses and would love to help keep your pets happy while you're away. Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to know more.
I'm happy to stay over to look after your precious pets at your home, or can offer one or two daily visits for feline friends, bunnies, guinea pigs or exotics. Dog owners please note that if you will be away for longer than 24 hours then I only offer a housesitting service, not single walks or single visits. Housesitting provides more behavioural support for your pooch and helps strengthen my bond with your furbaby 😊
If you're curious why there aren't many photos on my page... I take many regular pics of pets while I'm pet-sitting and send them directly to my client's phones for updates while they're away, saves having to log-in while you're on holiday :)
Karen is a fantastic sitter - would highly recommend!
Karen was amazing with Buddy. It was his first time with a pet sitter and he had obviously enjoyed his day, he was happy, relaxed and ready for a sleep when he returned home. Karen also provided me with some great strategies for his behaviour and anxiety. Thanks Karen 😀
