Here are photos of some of my customers. I find it really hard to narrow it down to one photo of each pet!
I’d been told Phoebe was nervous of new people. So I took care to be especially gentle and let her sniff me first on each visit. She was comfortable to purr and play which amazed me.
Jim was out when I met the owners so I was surprised how friendly and trusting he was. He spent most of each visit eating! A few cuddles and lots of purrs. Happy cat.
Fluffy deserves a second picture in the gallery as he has been my longest cat sit visit. I always tried to think of new things to keep him entertained. Over the weeks, he trusted me more and became more cuddly.
Winnie has stayed with us a couple of times now. She has been trained by her owner to go into a tube when it’s tapped. This is fantastic for getting her back when she has been running around the room.
Amelia, Anna and Autumn loved foraging in the garden and not going back into their pen. Clean bed day was their favourite and they rearranged all the straw.
Autumn was a cheeky chicken. When I turned my back, she ran into the house.
Paddy was always pleased for company and play. He was a dsh and oriental cross and you could definitely tell. Lots of head butts, leg rubs and general closeness. As well as him trying to tackle me to the floor.
Badger was always hungry. I had to hide his spare food as one night, he helped himself to three pouches. This was on top of his tea and dried food. Surprisingly he wanted breakfast too.
Ziggy was recovering from a car accident and was slightly nervous of me. However, would come to me for treats and playtime. I popped to see him again recently and he was feeling better and brave again.
Tilly was an older puss. Don’t let that fool you – she still had the killer instinct and chased toys. She enjoyed a fuss too.
Otto loved a fuss, but loved exploring even more. Very independent! Gorgeous cat.
This little lady loved a cuddle and a little play. Once she started purring, I found I couldn’t leave her. (Yep, this happens a lot.)
Spyro was a happy, lively little one. He enjoyed a little cuddle each morning. Always a good eater too.
Teddy was a gentle giant! He was slightly nervous of new people but he would be stood by his food bowl waiting for his dinner.
This was a very dainty, little kitten. Such a softy! Moved too fast for me to get a decent photo though. She had the brightest white whiskers.
This was a lovely, little old gentleman. He was so gentle and just wanted cuddles and a brush. Then I saw another side to him.... I'd put all my things on the floor and he suddenly attacked the mouse toy. Definitely had a good mousing instinct.
I was so pleased to meet Cheddar who was a recent addition to the family. She was very nervous of me at the beginning of each visit but was very watchful. It was lovely to see her cat mate, Martha again.
I only had 2 visits with Elsa but I loved every minute. This little girl just wanted to chat, cuddles and have someone to feed her.
Georgie was an outgoing bearded dragon. He let me know when he wanted to come out by tapping on the front of his cage. Like most pets, he was keen for food and got excited at meal times.
Cheetah was a new family member to a household of pets. He is a rescue, Bengal cross. I was surprised he was so friendly as he hadn’t met me before and was relatively new to the household. He did hide but when I called him, he came out purring.
