Pet Sitting / Pop In Pet Care
Taking care of your pets in the comfort of their own home.
When you are away you need a pet sitter you can trust. We have been providing quality pet care since 2011 and have many years experience looking after a range of pets. Below are some examples of how we can help.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements; we can tailor a package to suit you and your pet’s needs.
Pet Sitting for Cats
Using a pet sitter to look after your cats when you are away can be beneficial to their wellbeing. Cats are much happier when cared for in their own home rather than being in a cattery. Also where multiple cats are in the house a using a pet sitter can be more cost effective too!
We can cater for all your cat’s needs, including regular medication and special needs/diets. However, we are unable to accept cats with uncontrolled medical conditions.
Litter trays will be cleaned out, feed dishes washed out and topped up and water changed. The cat(s) will also be fussed and encouraged to play if they wish, or just an ear tickle or belly rub if they prefer!
We will also groom your cat; this is especially important in long haired cats, and we will also check your cat over to ensure that they have not been up to any mischief while you are away. We are fully aware of how sensitive cats are and we are experienced in detecting the subtle signs of stress in a cat.
Pet Sitting for Chickens
Chickens are now becoming more popular, not only for their eggs but also as friendly and inqusitive pets. As a professional pet sitter we provide expert care and we will ensure your featherd friends are given the utmost care and attention.
Like most pets they thrive on routine and so we will ensure they are let out in the morning and secured in the evening. Eggs are gathered in daily and dated. Fresh water will be supplied daily and roosting areas cleaned out to prevent the buildup of droppings. They will be observed to ensure that there is no sign of illness.
Waterfowl, such as ducks etc., will be let out in the mornings and secured of an evening. They will be fed and any paddling pools for them topped up.
Boundary fencing around fowl runs will be checked on a daily basis.
Pet Sitting - Special Needs
If a poorly animal needs syringe feeding or treating with vet prescribed medication while you are away, we able to do this and also check any wounds etc. No need to worry about a sick pet when you are not there.
Cats in particular can be very difficult to medicate but we have extensive experience with this.
Yes of course, we can look after your pets for any period whether it’s for one day, one month or regular ongoing visits.
We are insured and CRB checked. Your keys are kept in a safe location and are marked with a code to ensure that they cannot be identified to a property. In the unlikely event of key loss we would call out a locksmith and have your keys and locks changed at no cost to you. On return your house keys are not handed over to anyone else but you.
Cats are happier in their own home and we have a wealth of experience in dealing with shy cats. If the cat does not want to come out and play or interact with us then we would not force the issue as cats like to feel in control and forcing that socialisation can be very stressful for them.
Yes, we supply checkable references from our regular customers and they are only too happy to be contacted to verify the reference.
Yes, we realise that being away from your pet can be a worrying time and you want to ensure that all is well. We can either text you on a frequent basis or you can text us when you want that reassurance.
That’s fine, although we cannot accept responsibility if your cat was to meet with an accident while she was outside so we do ask you to sign a cat flap disclaimer. If the cat was to go missing we would of course continue daily vists until you return.
If you have pets in the house that need tending to then yes we would to be able to care for them. However some clients prefer that we only have access to part of the house, say a kitchen in order to wash up bowls and prepare food for the animals. We only access those parts of the house that we need to do so in the course of ensuring your animals welfare and to ensure house security.
We are a small family run business – we do not employ any staff, so you can rest assured that it will always be someone you can trust.
