Here are photos of some of my customers. I find it really hard to narrow it down to one photo of each pet!
This was a shy little cat but he loved to play. He was very watchful and would come and see what I was up to.
Another gorgeous cat. This puss was so friendly and playful. He worked out even the harder treat feeders.
This lovely little hamster was with us for a week. I’ve not had one run so fast before. He was a bit nervous at first but took food from our hands.
Hazel was an adorable kitten. She was a bit apprehensive at first and took a couple of days before she came running to me when I opened the door. I loved her fluffy tail.
Ella and Lola were really sweet little girls. Their top priority was having fun. It was really hard to take photos of them as they moved quickly.
These three ladies were ex battery hens. They loved coming out of their massive pen for a rummage in the garden. I always took treats so they had things to do.
Another playful kitty. I was going to say kitten, but Gingee was a few years old. A typical affectionate and interactive ginger cat.
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.
