House & Pet Care

42, University Lecturer

Hello... I have had much experience with house sitting and pet sitting. I also has experience with volunteering for the RSPCA in Canterbury.
I LOVE walking, so dog walking is a joy.
While living in Australia I had two dogs and a full time job, so I understand the need to know your pets and home are well cared for when you are away on holiday or visiting relatives.... and I have been able to offer that peace of mind to others since.
I am currently (As of June 2020) a university lecturer on sabbatical and also work part time (mainly remotely) for an educational charity in Herefordshire.
I would love to take this time to experience new places and if possible love other peoples pets as we do not currently have any of our own.
I am happy to travel to various destinations.

Excellent couple. Very easy to communicate with and easy to trust. Very self sufficient and capable. Flower, our biggest, can be a handful and needs an extra level of attention and I felt they were very switched on to her needs whilst also be comfortable and assured. House was immaculate and wouldn't hesitate to have them take care of our girls in the future. Thank you both for your efforts and attention.

This was our first experience using House Sitters UK &, thanks to excellent care & attention of Joanne & Kevin, we shall definitely repeat. We left them in charge of our two Burmese cats (who needed medicines administering for allergies) & a bearded dragon, all of whom were well cared for & we were appreciative of the photos they sent us while we were away. Our garden was watered, lawn mown & vegetables harvested which was much appreciated. Just at the point of our departure we had issues ... MORE

Joanne and Kevin are very reliable house sitters and I would recommend them to anyone. Our house and cat were well looked after during the two night house sit. Joanne and Kevin are easy to get in touch with, turn up when they say they will and are also flexible when it comes to making plans even at short notice. Great house sitters.
KATHERINE (Hereford England, Aug 2020 - 2 days)
If you have a houseful of pets, many pots of plants and lots of small things that need attention, then you could not ask for a better couple to carry on caring for your household while you are away. Joanne has a way with cats, and had ours fast asleep in her lap within 24 hrs, and by the time they left he was sleeping on the bed with them! The guinea pigs, fish and flowers all thrived while in their care and the house was cleaner when we got home than when we left it. They even took it in their ... MORE

No rating An excellent kind person, who clearly loves cats. She left our house in a perfect state and animals that were stress free and content. Thoroughly recommended.
JOLYON AND SUZANNE (Tenterden England, Nov 2017 - 6 days)
No rating Joanne looked after our house and our 13 years old cat Puma for 2 weeks. When we returned, house was clean and tidy and puma was happy. Joanne is very friendly and positive person, we would definitely recommend her
INNA&JACK (Cheltenham England, Mar 2016 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Joanne has looked after our pets and our home on two occasions now and we would recommend her 100%. She has been completely reliable, very caring and we had great peace of mind going away with our precious ones in such good hands.
