Friendly, calm, reliable animal lover
A friendly, caring, kind-hearted individual, I love nothing more than spending time with animals, walking, snuggling on the sofa with a gorgeous bundle of fur (or feathers - lots of experience with budgies!) and looking after them.
I have been an owner of (and owned by) numerous wonderful animals over the year - dogs, cats, fish, birds, mice, chickens and more! I have experience of caring for rescue animals, and spent a glorious 16 years being loved by a rescue cat, who spent the first 6 months of her life cowering, but came to trust and love me, and we were best buddies for many years.
Plenty of experience with dogs, too, having been around, and helped with, guide dog puppies for more than a decade. Walking, poop scooping and grooming are all fine by me (and cuddling and playing with!)
I have experience of house sitting (see below for a quote from my latest completed sit) and am respectful that I am sharing the space of your much loved home, and will do my upmost to take great care of it.
"Karen is a gentle, kind person, who I trust completely to look after my cat and home. Tiki (my cat) can be a bit naughty, but they got on so well, and within days I received photos of Tiki snuggled on Karen's lap. I would absolutely recommend this sitter. A great find and will use again!" Mrs. K Wood, Bideford.
