Houseproud, animal loving non-smoking female in my 30's with own transport. Working/studying online so flexible and able to spend lots of quality time with your furrkids.

I've grown up with and had years of experience both owning and and looking after most furry/non furry friends including:

# CATS (indoor/outdoor, pure breed ie siamese to moggies and former street cats)

#HORSES (stabled and paddock, training or unridden)

# Aquariums/fish to chickens/hens, mice and rabbits.

We were so comfortable after meeting Barb and having her come and look after our 3 furbabies at our house. She sent us great photos and promptly replied to any messages. We would definitely use Barb again, and recommend her to others.
