About this sitter

Hi all,

I'm Laura, a work from home writer who has experience living in many different countries and looking after animals of all types. I love animals and pets always love me - I always get asked back for future sits :). I housesit full time and am now filling up my calendar for the first half of 2021.

I have a 100% record in being asked to sit again - pets (and their owners) are very happy with my sits and I guarantee that even nervous pets will be fully bonded with me by the end of a sit. (So many of my clients have been stunned on their return by how much their nervous/unfriendly/shy pets have taken to me - I am happy to demonstrate this when you get back! I love animals and have an instinctive understanding of all types of pets.)

I have reviews on this site, among others, and have completed successful sits all over the world and can provide other references. This is a reference from my first sit:

"Delighted to have found such a great sitter
Laura has looked after our home and pets twice now and we couldn't be happier. She is super prompt in responding to any emails, dotes on the cats and dogs who are all very happy to see her (including one little dog who generally doesn't like anyone!). Laura is a lovely person and our home was very well looked after. We are fortunate to have made a new friend as well as a reliable house sitter. I'd highly recommend Laura.'

I often get asked why I petsit - a question I understand as an animal lover myself. The main reason is that I love animals and always have - it's genuinely a delight to me to meet animals and get to know them. I understand how pet owners can be nervous leaving their beloved animals with someone they don't know. I understand how the pets feel too, wondering where their owners are, and I'm very gentle and caring while the pets adapt. To me this is a genuine, holistic service and I'm very happy to do it; I hate to think of a pet stressed or upset in kennels or with someone who didn't care about their welfare.

I work from home so spend almost all my time indoors when housesitting (apart from dog walking where relevant), so your pets will have plenty of company. The only thing I need is wifi for work; otherwise, I'm happy anywhere.

I want homeowners to be fully comfortable in asking me to sit, so am available for chats and/or video calls as much as you like before and during a sit. I'm also very happy to sign a contract/agreement about the sit if you prefer, and for neighbours or friends to drop in during the sit to put your mind at ease.

Please get in touch if you'd like more info or if you have any questions. Please contact me for links to my Amazon page and my writing website if you'd like to know more.

Look forward to meeting you and your furry friend/s soon!

Best,

Laura
