Meet some of our customers and read what they say about us

We have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (Dash).
We had planned to go on holiday quite a while before we had Dash and so when the time arose for our holiday we were naturally very concerned as to where Dash could go.
The breeder had advised us that Cavaliers do not like kennels and that a home environment would be far better.
We found Catherine's details on the National Petsitters website and arrangements were made to visit with Dash.
Dash is part of our family and it was clear to see that Catherine's own dogs
and those she looks after are very important to her, this made us feel very confident to leave Dash with Catherine knowing that he would be very well cared and loved, even allowing him to sleep on the family bed just like he does at home.

The last site we saw of Dash when we went on our holiday was him being carried in Catherine's arms with his tail wagging away -
he didn't even look back at us, much to our dismay.
On his return home he was very quiet, after so much dog company at
Catherine's we think he was lonely and missing his holiday home.
Now whenever we go near Catherine's house in the car
Dash becomes very excited expecting another adventurous weekend.
In short we have no hesitation in recommending Catherine as a petsitter.
She is a genuine animal lover.

Last year we moved into the area and suddenly found we needed to find
someone to walk our dog Billy, luckily for us Catherine was advertising
in the parish news. We made a quick phone call to her and she arranged
to visit us at home and meet Billy. On this visit she explained all
about her service, costs etc. and introduced her sister Nicole who also
helps out sometimes. The very next day Catherine started walking Billy
and has done so two or three times a week ever since.

Catherine has proved to be both flexible and reliable during this time
and often leaves me little notes about Billy and his walks, showing
genuine concern over his welfare. If Catherine needs for any reason to
make changes to our arrangements eg she may need to come 15 minutes
earlier she always asks if it is ok giving as much notice as possible.
All in all both Billy and I would recommends Catherine's service as
being friendly, reliable and flexible.

Catherine has been our pet-sitter for nearly three years and, in that time, has cared for our two cats Albert and Ellie many times. 

She has shown her obvious love for animals and when we go on holiday now,
we do so in the knowledge that our cats will receive the same care and attention that we give them. Catherine devotes time and love to the pets in her care and can be relied upon in any emergency situation. 

We whole-heartedly recommend her.

I can highly recommend Catherine of Home ~Animal Care she has always been accommodating, even at short notice, is reliable and very professional.  Our two dogs are always well cared for and are very happy to see her.  She even had to deal with a case of diarrohea last time she came to us, cleared up the accident and did not complain at all!!!

Since Larson (my seven year old chocolate Labrador) has been ‘holidaying’ with Catherine I have been able to go on holiday without any worries!  When we first met, Catherine took great care in learning about Larson’s likes/dislikes, dietary needs, health problems and funny habits – of which there are many!  He never looks back when I leave him and is always tired and happy when I collect him.  The fact that I know he receives the same carefully monitored off-lead exercise as he does at home is very reassuring and I know I won’t return to the very ‘hyper’ dog that greeted me following a stay in kennels. Larson loves the home from home environment Catherine and her family provide with the added companionship of Lucy, Harry, Bella and the adorable Florence. I cannot thank her, or indeed recommend her enough!

Catherine has walked Rupert our Afghan Hound for the past four years, starting when he was a young puppy. Catherine is totally in tune with Rupert, his funny habits, such as, stopping dead when a twig has got stuck in his coat, trying to fly when he spots a pigeon on a telegraph pole, but also knowing when he is off colour. As far as we are concerned, Catherine has done over and above the call of duty since being introduced to Rupert.


Catherine is totally reliable and trustworthy, If ever we need to change our plans or add some extra visits, we have always found her very obliging and flexible, Catherine gives us peace of mind and confidence that not only Rupert and our cats, but also our home, is in safe hands. There is also the knowledge that any problems which may arise, will be dealt with calmly and responsibly.
