Faye Friendly Pet Carer with 3 years Experience
| Hi, My names Faye. I have 3 years experience taking care of numerous lovely pets and meeting fantastic owners. I have experience with cats, dogs and smaller pets such as rabbits and hamsters. I have 2 cats myself, Olive, 7 years old and 5 year old Al Pacino which I absolutely adore. I have great continuous relationships with owners and their pets and have been a dedicated pet sitter for several families over the past 3 years. I have taken care of many different dogs with a range of personailties , including German Shepard Marley, King Charles Cavalier, Simba, British bully, Winnie and little Pixie the chihuahua. From feeding and walking to grooming and overnight sitting, making sure they feel at ease while owners are away. It can be a stressful time for your pet when left alone, making sure they feel comforted and happy is extremely important to me, so whether it's having an ear rub and a cuddle or a play around the park with their favourite toy. Ill make sure your furry family member is taken care of. I currently care for siblings Simba and Nala, beautiful ginger cats when owners have weekends away. They love to play with toys and have ample energy which has helped with the new addition to the family, rescue kitten Indy. I regularly care for Pixie, the 7 year old chihuahua, I have been caring for Pixie for over a year now and regularly have her at my office during the day, I co-own a video production company in Leicesters cultural quarter. I am lucky to be able to set my own hours making me flexible enough to persue my passion for animals and extend my experience caring for them. My office is extremely dog friendly and any pets I have taken with me get adored by the buildings other staff. A recent addition to my pet care is 2 year old Archer the cat. She is a beautiful and funny character. Having recently been spayed, I cared for her after the operation while her owners were at work, making sure she was recovering well and sending updates to the family. It didn't take long for her to bounce back to her crazy self. I have experience with smaller pets, growing up with rabbits and many hamsters over the years. I have cared for zeb the rabbit, he only had 3 legs and was partially blind, so a gentle approach and making sure he had a clean cage and nothing sharp to hop into kept him happy. I am confident with handling and happy to clean cages and hutches. When I take care of any new pet, it is important to me that owners feel happy and confident that their furry companion is in good hands. Pet care is essential, I make sure to know all your pets needs, make sure they are happy and get plenty of fuss and attention, keep you worry free whether you are out for the day working or away on holiday. I'm also always happy to send photo and video updates of how your pet is doing. I have a full clean driving license, I can transport pets (space permitting) I have a 3dr VW Up, back seats can be folded down but will not lay flat for large carriers/cages unfortunately. Im happy to provide references from owners confident with the care I have given their beloved pets . Whether you are looking for one time care or regular sitting. I would love to help. Look forward to meeting you
