Here are photos of some of my customers. I find it really hard to narrow it down to one photo of each pet!
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.
"This photo doesn't show off Timmy's size! I had a lovely one off walk with Timmy. A previous client with a new pet.
It was love at first sight for me – he had the most gorgeous markings and I do love a bit of fluff. I knew he had accepted me when he let me groom his tummy. Fluffy was a house cat but liked walks in the garden with me.
Barbara came to stay for a week. It felt like having another human in the house talking about Barbara. She was spoilt with lots of cuddles and treats, like every guest.
CC stayed for the week with his brother. These two loved company and popped out of their tunnels when they heard us. We all loved having them stay with us.
TT stayed for the week with his brother CC. These were lovely tame gerbils. Lots of personality!
Archie was a happy little chap. He enjoyed simple pleasures like food and having a cuddle. When he went out for a wee, the cats went too. A family adventure!
Freddy was massive and striking looking. Stunning blue eyes with snow leopard colouring and the longest tail I’ve ever seen. A beautiful Bengal and Siamese cross. So affectionate with forceful head butts – poor Toby got knocked off his feet.
Toby was a distinguished gentleman and completely different from all other Siamese cats I’ve met. He was so gentle, friendly and quiet. Keen for food and a lap.
Maggie and Bruno had four chickens (which were hard to photograph). They had a really big coop, run and garden. When they heard my voice, they would come running. Then they would follow me as I changed their water.
Maggie and her brother Bruno were very much hunters. They brought me worms, moths and mice. Sometimes the ‘gifts’ were dead but not always. Maggie loved playing, but she was a gentle soul and enjoyed being talked to.
This cat was gorgeous. He made me laugh by grabbing my foot when I walked. Everything was prey for him to kill. He was easily pleased and would play with one toy for ages. Loved his fluffy tail until he rolled in dirt outside.
Daisy was happy with company and surprising, enjoyed exploring. However, she didn’t enjoy sharing food with her sister. Tomatoes were their favourite. Both liked fresh food so I gave them different food each day.
Clover and her sister were adorable piggies. They had a lot to say and were very brave. They spent most of the week running around the living room. Both enjoyed cuddles but weren’t keen on being groomed.
