About Yvette

Just as it says on the tin, I'm an absolute animal lover! I always seem to find an animal to cuddle while travelling. My partner very patiently waits while I constantly stop to admire, pet and interact with the animals we come across, even the wild deer on Miyajima Island in Japan.

I currently have a dog Shadow who I adopted from the pound about 8 years ago now, a cat Beau who is 11, and they are the apples of my eye. They're also my favourite models for my photography.

I'm capable with large animals as I used to work with horses, and Shadow is no lap dog! Small animals are also no worry of course. I also have experience with elderly dogs, as I had the pleasure of owning and caring for a boxer until she was 12. I believe my confidence and sensibility with animals means I can gain their trust, avoid dangerous situations and just have a blast with them. I can be both firm and gentle when necessary, though I am a big softie at heart! With me your pet won't go without cuddles and attention.

I offer 30min home visits and 30min walks, along with any pet sitting required. You can rest assured knowing your pet is in safe hands and you’ll get some quality photos into the bargain!

I get a lot of joy from spending time with animals and, as a pet owner, know that sometimes you need a helping hand when things come up. I'd love to meet you and your pets and lend you a helping hand/paw :)

House Sitting
Wendy, 2021-03-18

Yvette did a wonderful job of caring for our 3 bunnies, 3 chickens and elderly dog, all were healthy and house was tidy. Sheets had been washed and changed on the bed.

She agreed to the housesit at short notice which was great for us as we had been let down by another housesitters site.

For us personally we would have preferred someone who wasn't working and could have been there most of the day but that hasn't stopped our animals from looking healthy and happy when we got home. Lovely person to deal with, gave us updates while we were away. I wish her well with any ongoing sits, very easy to deal with

Thank you Yvette for a great job done looking after Sarge. He was really relaxed when I returned so I could tell he had plenty of cuddles and care.
