About P&HSS, My furry Family and Me

A bit about my 'family' and me... I’m Sue, a 56 year old mad keen animal
'Spod' based just outside Exeter, Devon. I have over 40 years experience in caring for a variety of pets, and have taken various courses in pet care, pet and house sitting - please see my Qualifications but not quite so long caring for houses.

Since a babe in arms, there have always been pets in our home. Cats, dogs (large & small, pedigree and 57’s) rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, a rat, gerbils, hamsters, budgies, lovebirds, a huge assortment of finches, tropical and cold-water fish, a Mexican Red Leg Tarantula, and (when my brother and I were kids) the odd slow worm or two kept in a let-down section of wardrobe – much to our mother’s horror!

The poppets on the right from the top are: my last beloved cat Mummy-One, a tortoiseshell and white, resplendent in her war paint, who I rescued from a farm and was my live-in companion for 19½ years. I used to wear her like a fur collar as I walked around the garden - paws and head draped down the left side of my face, feet and tail on the other. Her daughter, Baby-One who had a completely different personality from her mother - just as loving but in a totally different way - was 15 when she died of cancer and Heidi my 2nd rescue border collie who was with me for 13.5 years. Whilst Heidi was still fairly young we adopted Bubble and Squeak, (the girls) our 2 current rescue cats who go a good way to filling the enormous void left by their predecessors.

Bubble & Squeak were about 5 months old when we liberated them from the Cats Protection where they were born. Bubble has always been the adventurous one, she was up on my lap and purring within 4 hours of coming to a strange new home. Squeak was very nervy, it took her 4 days to sit on my lap and purr, but amazingly since I had to apply eye drops to both her eyes for a week or so she has gradually come out of her shell - I thought she'd consider me the enemy when I first applied the drops, but since that time she follows me around as Heidi used to do and is usually first on my lap for cuddles and fuss! She must have realised that I was helping not harming her.

We fostered Tilly and Tia (two Heinz dogs) on 18th October 2017, and having had quite a long journey, they settled in nicely.  Ours is the 4th home they've had in their 10 month lives. They each have their own behavioural problems and trust issues which we're working on daily but this is where they've come to prepare for their 'forever home'. They originally came from Romania but understand English commands when they want to. Update April 2018, Happily, after 6 months with us, both dogs have now moved on to their forever homes.

The poppets on the left are not pictures of my own previous pets, but I have shared my life with one or more of each species.  Oh! please don't think I consider myself a 'poppet' but I'm at the top of the left column - in case you were wondering who the lovely lass in the piccy was...  ahem....

Having been without a dog of our own for the last 6 months on 26/09/2018 we brought home our new puppy.  She's a Kelpie x Border Collie.

Thinks..."What in the world of new xbreed names, does that make her? A Kelpoollie? a Collelpie? a Collpie? a Kollipie?" unthinks!

Whatever name you choose she's adorable.  She's nearly 9 weeks old and EVERYTHING is finding it's way into her mouth! We've named her 'Treacle'. Did you get the reference to food for our 3 girls?  Bubble & Squeak and Treacle... I can't think how that happened! There's a photo of her at the bottom of the right-hand column and a couple more in the gallery.

We’ve found that over the years we have needed someone trustworthy to look after our 'girls' when away.  We don't like the idea of kennels or catteries as we're sure our pets would be much happier at home, and as we were fortunate enough to find just the right person, we developed a real passion for worry-free, guilt-free and stress-free holidays, long weekends away & days off. I am therefore. committed to ensuring my clients get the quality time away from their usual home/work duties they deserve and need.

Just to be able to leave your pets, home and possessions to a qualified, experienced pet and home sitter who's caring, responsible and capable is so reassuring and relaxing - read my reviews, they're on the right-hand column near the top - My Pet and House Sit Service allows you the freedom to think of nothing but your own pleasure, completely worry and guilt free for the entire time you're away.

By having me take care of your pets and possessions. you'll come home to find your pets happy and content and your home just as you left it. For your added peace of mind: I have a current CBS/DBS certificate and am Fully Insured
