Here are photos of some of my customers. I find it really hard to narrow it down to one photo of each pet!
This is the smallest, happy, purr machine I’ve met. Usually found playing in the sink with the plug.
Nova had an extra toe and looked like she was a chameleon. She liked to keep me on her toes and didn’t always come in. Very much an outdoor cat as she liked watching the squirrels. That’s why I love this picture of her wanting a cuddle.
Duchess was wary…. Until she heard my treat pot. We built up trust slowly and she let me clean her eye and brush her a little.
Two little cuties that loved their morning treat. Was so funny to see them run away with it. Very happy with a new tube to shred.
These two were happy little piggies that ate a lot. I love it when guinea pigs eat their vegetables… unlike my children.
Teddy Bear had recently lost his friend so I made sure he was spoilt and loved. He loved his supper of parsley and mint.
Just thinking about Oreo makes me smile. He loves a fuss and to headbutt all the time. Not a lap cat but wanted affection as well as a little play.
Newton was more shy than his brother Einstein. However, on the second visit, he settled inside and let me stroke him. It wasn’t long before he was purring. If he was outside, he preferred to play or watch than be stroked. But he came for every meal too!
A friendly, happy chap who was always pleased for company. He was very much an outdoor cat so I was very relieved when he came in for food every tim
Monty was an outgoing and playful boy from the start. I was surprised he wasn’t interested in the degus.
Katie was timid on the initial meeting and the first visit. She soon came to trust me. Gentle unless you were a cat toy.
This was the first time I cared for degus since college. They were adorable! A bit nervous but would come to take food from my hand.
Another fluffy black cat. She was a bit unsure on the first visit and I had to bribe her with treats to come in. After tha, she was my new best friend.
Fluffy kitten! A little purring ball of happiness. Everything she did was at top speed which made me laugh. Very friendly and loved interaction but not a lap cat.
Budgies with the cutest names. Bunji didn’t have a tail but both were friendly. Such lovely little noises and my teenage son enjoyed having them here. (He’s not usually interested in the visitors.)
While the rabbits were here, I ate many meals in the garden with them. Chanel would come and gently nudge my ankle. He also didn’t want to go in at night but was easily bribed with his tea.
Coco and Chanel were two brothers that stayed for nearly three weeks. Coco was dominant – including over me when he didn’t want to go in at night.
A shy cat that hid on the initial meeting so I was surprised that she came out to see me. As the visits went on, she even came to meet me when I went in. She may have been shy, but she still liked to play and purred when she had a fuss.
Libby was a friendly, playful and happy cat. Purring was her normal mode.
Pepsi wanted to give me a run around but she wasn’t fast enough. I didn’t see this as a win… just lucky.
