I have been a pet sitter in Kirkcaldy since 2003 and have enjoyed looking after a variety of pets including cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish and hens.
The benefits to your pet of staying at home are:
- No stressful car journeys to and from boarding facilities
- Kept in own environment therefore less stressful
- Kept to same routine
- Same person caring for them throughout your absence
- Pet more relaxed on your return in comparison to its experience away from home
- Pet seen by your own vet if they fall ill
The benefits to you are:
- One less job i.e. no packing up your pets and their belongings to take them elsewhere
- Your house looks lived in while you're away i.e. curtains opened and shut, mail taken in from door, lights left on etc.
- For multi-pet households, should be a cheaper option to boarding
- No more depending completely on family, friends and neighbours for pet sitting
Registering your pet normally takes about 1 hour. As well as gathering necessary information about your pets needs, their habits, likes and dislikes etc. this session gives your pet time to get to know me and vice versa.
For most pets, visits are made twice a day. My morning rounds start at 6.30am and my evening visits start at 4pm. As well as the basics of feeding and water changes all the other needs of your pet is met. This depending on species may include:
- Giving medication
- Play sessions
- Litter changes
- Hutch and cage cleans (an additional charge applies)
- Vet visits as required (charged in respect of my time)
In addition to having been police checked, for your complete peace of mind please read what some of my clients have to say.
"Moira has looked after all our pets (cats, rabbits and hamster) for several years now. As well as knowing that she is a genuine animal lover, I have had the added peace of mind knowing that she has the skills and knowledge to react appropriately should any of them fall ill." Claire
"Moira looked after our cat when we were on holiday. At all times we left him knowing that he was in very safe hands. He loved Moira as was obvious whenever she came to the house. Moira is completely trustworthy and always very knowledgable about the animals in her care. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending her." Anne Urquhart
"We contacted Moira 5 years ago to look after our cat Basil when we are away from home and have never looked back. She provides an excellent pet care service and we would be lost without her. ... She is reliable and extremely trustworthy and it is reassuring to know our property is being checken on twice daily. ...The sure sign that she does a good job is coming back to a very contented cat even after a fortnight of leaving him." Claire & Bob.
