Pet sitting experiences
Pet sitting references
In august 2018 some friends asked me to look after their 2 rabbits during their summer holidays. This was my first pet sitting experience, near Avignon.
I built a big shelter for these 2 animals in our garden, in order to protect them from our cat and dog's curiosity...
I fell in love with Rasta & Rockette. They were tiny compared to Nuage, our dog (32 kilos) and even Zig, our cat (6 kilos). Rasta was a little scary : when he got stuck one day in a fence, I discovered his teeth were much too long what his master had not noticed.
My vet cut them just in time, he could have starved, not being able anymore to eat...
Pet sitting experiences with Nomador
As I could use buses and taxis, I did not need to rent a car. I had to keep 1 dog : Maggie for 2 weeks. A lovely one, her master prefered to keep off the leash in town, but local police did not agree.
Bonnie, Diane, Lune and Trompi were very wild cats. Sometimes vanishing for a few days, what I was not aware of...
In july 2019 we went to the Costwolds, my husband and I. I stayed alone 2 weeks after his departure. We had rent a car.
We were in charge of 3 dogs, 1 cat & 8 hens
Marley, a whippet, Maddie, a labrador (19 years old) and Loki, a young french bouledogue. All friendly.There was also a very loveable cat Chi, and several tropical fish.
8 hens gave us daily organic eggs for breakfast. Sheep and 3 horses were also staying on the estate but they belonged to an owner's friend, who took them in charge.
In december 2020 I went alone, driving under a heavy rain 700km to the west of France.
I spent 9 days around Xmas in Saintes looking after 2 cats, twins both 6 years old.
If Toto loved cuddles, and to sleep by my lap when I was reading, Ludo prefered to stay all day long in his basket. He followed me once in the garden but the weather was so wet he did not feel often to go out !
