More information about this house sitter

Protective, caring and careful with your animals, home and possessions.
I have cared for many animals over many years and have regular clients who have become friends. A veterinary practice in London also recommends me and passes on my contact details to people wanting animal and house care.
If people learnt from animals the world would be a better place.
I take pride in being able to adapt myself to the animal/s I am caring for. I love their different personalities and characteristics and getting their trust. I have cared for animals of all ages and with different levels of fitness. It is very rewarding to be accepted by an animal and to be able to share their domain. Owners always know on their return whether a pet has been happy whilst they were away.
I never leave animals for a long period and would not be relaxed if I did.
What I want to do is bond with the animals I care for and gain their trust, so I have a relationship with them albeit for a short time.
Animals teach you unconditional love and much can be learnt from them.
I have been trusted with homes humble and grand and am a very good house sitter regarding cleanliness, garden/plant care and security/alarm systems.
I do not have enough experience with horses to be able to care for them (quite capable of looking out for them, giving a carrot and a pat and a chat but not able to ride or groom to a professional standard) but all other animals I am happy with. I cannot milk cows and goats but would love to learn...
I charge fifty pounds a day for up to two house animals plus fares which are kept to a minimum.
I will waive a fee completely if someone is on low income and needs time away for a break or to see family and cannot go unless they have free animal care.

I have a few regular clients happy to be contacted apart from the written references published on Mind a Home.

'Susan arrived fully prepared for the job in hand. Two small dogs and a big fluffy kitten in a large house and gardens. She took full responsibility and dealt with it all fantastically. I had regular updates on how everyone was doing and she took lots of notes to ensure nothing was missed. I would totally recommend Susan for housesitting. It was a pleasure to have her stay in our home. Until the next time dearest Susan!.

'Susie looked after our house in Sussex in April 2021 and I can thoroughly recommend her. We had a last minute, very sad change in our circumstances, which Susie took all in her stride and dealt with the situation brilliantly. it was like having a good friend stay in the house! I can totally recommend her- she took great care of our animals, the rather large house and garden, she was charming and she kept me informed of all that was going on whilst we were away. Thank you Susie- we hope to welcome you here again!'

'If you are looking for an experienced and reliable pet sitter I highly recommend Susie- she is a real pet lover! She has looked after three cats for us (taking enormous care with our oldest cat who needed regular medication) and a large London house on many occasions over the last ten years. She was in charge of the house and takes the responsibility seriously. A lovely, trustworthy woman with a real understanding of my feline friends.'

I have three large, energetic, crossbreed rescue dogs that Susie sits for. I have my own demanding business and am often called away at short notice and she always tries to accommodate me if I need her at short notice. I usually go away to India every year and she looks after them during that period for at least a month. She walks for miles with them on the coast or in the downs, as I live in Brighton. She was recommended to me by a friend whose dog she cared for and I have used her for a long time. Sometimes there are issues with my dogs as in the past they suffered from neglect and abuse. Susie is a kind, sensitive soul and this has helped with the trust she has built with them. I am afraid they all insist on sleeping with her when she sits for them. She now retains a house key which shows my level of trust. I highly recommend her.

'I am an incredibly fussy woman about my animals (Jack Russell, Shih Tzu and two Exotic cats) and home. I use Susie regularly because she has always delivered a good service. My animals love her and the house is left immaculate. She is the only sitter that I have trusted them with and she is recommended by my local vet'.

Susan was a very reliable sitter for our cat when we were away for the Summer last year.
She also took care of our house in a great way.
We can give her our best references.
