About this sitter

I’m a semi-retired teacher now, just doing the odd bit of supply work, meaning I’m very flexible and could sit at short notice. When my own sons were growing up, we had a variety of pets, including cats, Guinea pigs, mice, rabbits, gerbils and fish! I was brought up with dogs myself , but work prevented us from having a dog at the time. My current cat, Mia, is a rescue , who was very timid and had never been outside. It took a long time for us to get her used to being outside and we still have to do the occasional ‘body guard’ support role; not to mention rescuing her when she gets stuck on the garden wall from time to time! I walk a lot, run a bit, so I’m happy to take dogs for walks etc.
I have an enhanced DBS and I’m fully vaccinated. I live in Lancaster and would be happy to travel about 4 hours to a sit. In November I will be going to New Zealand for 4 months to visit my son and I’m keen to book a couple of sits anywhere in NZ to enjoy a wider range of areas.

Why they want to house sit

I love to travel and now that it’s safer to resume I’m keen to get going again. My son is at home and can take care of Mia.

Their experience

Yes, see above.

What can they bring to the assignment

Lots of cuddles and attention for all prospective pets. I have my own house and garden and do most of my DIY jobs so can take care of your house and garden as required.

Testimonials

Wonderful Sitter

Diane was the perfect sitter for our 2 needy cats and our little house. An extremely friendly lady who proved straight away that she was the perfect choice. The day we left, our older cat became a little poorly, but Diane took extra special care of him and sent us regular updates. We were able to relax in the knowledge that the 2 were looked after well. Extra patience was required for our nervous younger cat, which was no trouble at all for her. Our house was just as we left it and cats happy. We would recommend Diane to anyone after a pet and house sitter and would welcome her back at any time. Thank you Diane :) x

Looking after cottage, cats and poultry

Diane kindly stepped in to help when we were let down by a house sitter 2 weeks before going away. We didn't actually meet Diane, except on facetime before we went away, but she looked after things well, the cats seemed very happy and the house was left very clean and tidy. Diane was very good at communicating - it was easy arranging with her and she kept us informed during the house sit. Thank you Diane!
