Started November 2004

Based inLower Edmundton

I have lived in North London for most of my life around the areas of Muswell Hill and Potters Bar, but since the early 90’s I have lived in Palmers Green and have now moved to Bush Hill Park with my two teenage children.

Whilst growing up we always had many pets, mainly cats they have always been a big part of my life.

For five years I was an animal nurse at the RSPCA Hospital in Holloway (made famous by Rolf Harris) and I also worked in a veterinary practice in Devon. I then worked as a police officer for thirteen years.

Since leaving the police I have often looked after friends cats and had them staying with us when they are on holiday.

I have owned and enjoyed small animals from a young age. Growing up, we had two rabbits who I loved taking care of.

I also had four gerbils who were an absolute delight and had their own individual personalities. I have also had my own aquarium and owned many fish.

From owning small animals, I understand what a worry it can be when going away, wanting to ensure they are still safe and cared for.

I hope to provide this peace of mind to people with small animals and intend to take as much care of them as I would my own.

Based in Wapping

 

Since the age of 6 I have owned a variety of pet's including - fish, guinea pigs, rabbit, canary birds, cat and dog and have also always been happy to help friends and family with looking after their pets over weekends and holidays, giving me a great appreciation of the responsibility involved with looking after other peoples pets.

After many years of toying with my dream of working with animals I finally resigned from my city job in 2002. Although having had many years experience of caring for my own and friends pets I still felt the need to gain experience in the pet care industry and therefore trained in a grooming shop for 7 months before going ahead and setting up on my own. A lot of hard work and long hours but it is all well worth it and I am very lucky to have an awesome support network of family, friends and colleagues all over the pet industry.

It is with this in mind and because I believe the pet sitting industry often leaves a lot to be desired in terms of professionalism, care and safety, I have decided to take up the career of pet carer. I want to help others feel happy and safe in the knowledge that their beloved pet is looked after with all the love and attention it deserves and my reward; I get to spend all my time with wonderful furry friends it just doesn't get any better than that!

Based in N20 Friern Barnet

 

I was born in London and have been here all of my life.

I work in the West End in the evenings but I have recently wanted to curb the urge of being surrounded by animals.

I have lived with cats, dogs, hamsters and a snake so I have a wide experience.

Sadly, due to most rented property in London not allowing pets I am unable at the moment I currently am not able to have a pet right now.

So, my solution is to spend quality time with other peoples pets and give them the attention I cannot give elsewhere.

Cute little pets have always been fun, who doesn't love our furry little friends? Hamsters, mice, rats, budgies, canaries they all need some love and care.

I moved from Venice to London almost four years ago, and absolutely love being here in the capital.

I have always loved animals, and from a young age have always had animals around me, including; rabbits, hamsters, fish and birds.

Currently, with my partner I am the proud owner of two adorable guinea pigs, that always welcome me back to the house after a hard shift at the pub, where I am Assistant Manager, brightening my day.

 My partner Simon also has a soft spot for animals, growing up in the countryside animals always played a large part in his life, and his family provided homes to many rescue animals including donkeys, goats, cats, ducks, hamsters, gerbils, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs and stick insects.

We welcome the opportunity to look after your pets and you can rest assured that they will enjoy their stay with us, be it long or short, and they will be treated as part of the family!

Animals have always been important to me: my first word was zoo!  I’ve always spent lots of time watching wildlife, have learnt to ride, nursed sick and orphaned wild birds and of course socialized with as many dogs and cats as possible. As a kid we lived by a small lake and had lots of pets, including guinea pigs, gerbils and ducks, which I used to round up and bring in for the night using a canoe.

When I moved to London I adopted two gorgeous part Havana, part Persian kittens.  I had many happy years of stuff getting knocked over and ripped up, play chases across the bed at 3 am… all the usual oriental stuff!  Sadly Bea was pts due to kidney and thyroid disease last year at the age of 17.  I still miss her so much.  Lizzie was pts at the age of 19 and was partially sighted in the end she also had heart, kidney and thyroid problems.  With all that I have a lot of practice giving medication!  I believe you have to be positive and flexible about it, try and make it enjoyable for them, and learn what works best for each individual.

I’ve worked as a volunteer in a children’s hospital play centre and as a domestic in old peoples homes.  I also work from home writing for a website and keep fit training for and running marathons for charity.

I love to spend some time caring for yours, whether they are young tearaways or lovely oldies.

I come from a family of farmers, so we've always had animals around. We had some larger animals, but we also always had cats, dogs and rabbits about the house. My parents made sure that my younger brother and sister and me always helped take care of the animals. They taught us how to treat animals and about each animal’s specific needs. Over the years, we have had several hamsters and rabbits and I have very fond memories of them.

When I went to university I no longer had pets of my own, as it was not a very suitable environment for them. At that time, I started taking care of friends’ or relatives’ hamsters, rabbits when they were on holiday. I have always taken care of other people’s pets as if they were my own, because every animal deserves to be treated with love and respect.

After university I moved to an apartment and when the time was right, I adopted my cat Dirk. He is a very loving and loveable cat. Obviously he is not allowed to go into the same room as any furry friend staying at our place, but he doesn't seem to mind (or notice).

Taking care of other people's pets is a responsibility I share with my husband Rick. He's very fond of animals as well. He's always happy to come home and play with the furry visitors or cuddle them. He's gets along with rabbits and hamsters really well. Your hamster, rabbit or guinea pig is always welcome at our place. We will make sure they enjot their stay with us and will take excellent care of them with plenty of TLC!

Areas Covered:
Hackney E5, and surrounding areas









I have lived in London most of my life, and I believe that I understand many of the special problems of pet owners in an urban environment.

I have always been in contact with animals, large and small.  As a child we had a big garden, and I was always on the lookout for injured birds, stray cats, hedgehogs, grass snakes, and as many waifs and strays as my long suffering parents could tolerate. We kept rabbits; my mother bred Siamese cats, and we had a delightful “bitsa” dog for several years.  My great love during my teenage years were horses and donkeys, but university put a hold on my keeping animals for a few years, although I still pet sat for other people.

I finally ended up in Hackney, where I have lived for some 35 years. I have looked after school pets during the summer holidays, fed and wintered several strays, inherited a lame budgie called Claudius; and finally we were adopted by a gorgeous white cat who lived with me for 18 years, followed by 2 of the most endearing ginger toms you have ever met.

One of the most important things we found was that when I was away I worried more about them than anything else, and that was where this company came into its own, with caring, compassionate and very professional carers, who we knew we could trust. They inspired me to want to support other pet owners, and I promise that I will care for all your precious pets as if they were my own.

After many years of dreaming of living in London my partner and we packed our things and moved here February 2009 and absolutely love London. For 5 years and until we moved I worked in Milan in an Eating disorder rehab as a Dietitian.

I contacted A Furry World because I have always loved animals! I enjoy horseback riding but enjoyed caring for horses as least as much as the riding itself. I have also had a hamster and guinea pigs and looked after friends cats.

I’m delighted that now am I able to make it possible for someone to have a pet even if they work or travel a lot knowing that there is someone lovingly caring for it.

My other hobbies and interests are cooking (I even have a cook book for dogs!), dancing and traveling.

Raffo couldn’t be my partner if he didn’t love animals too!
In his childhood he spent every summer holiday (which are 3 months in Italy!) on a  farm with animals and planned to become a farmer!
He also had rabbits as a kid and was very happy when we took up the critter boarding! He enjoys the company of our furry friends a lot and is always a little bit sad when they have to go back home.

Based in Palmers Green N13

I grew up in Edinburgh and moved to London in 2003.  As a child my family always kept pets but it wasn't until I gave up my job in financial services four years ago that we were able to adopt our own cats - Bruce and Isla.  

I became an animal carer in 2014 and I am so pleased I did - as a previous client myself I understand the anxiety of leaving your beloved pets and the importance of finding someone reliable, and a genuine animal lover, to entrust their care.  

I mostly care for cats, rabbits and guinea pigs and I cover the area of Palmers Green in North London having happily lived here for over ten years with my husband and small daughter, I enjoy looking after friends and neighbours animals and look forward to meeting yours.

Based in Stoke Newington

I am a huge lover of all animals. I have grown up around them throughout my life and am in the process of changing my career to work with them on a professional level. I currently volunteer at The Mayhew Animal Home twice a week spending one full day in their kennels working with rescue dogs. I walk, feed, help train and socialise with the 20+ dogs in their care.

I am in the process of starting studies to eventually become a veterinary nurse.

I have also volunteered in Thailand working at an animal sanctuary for street dogs and cats, working alongside vets from all over the world.

I adore dogs and would relish looking after anyone’s as my own. You can feel very safe leaving your dog in my hands!
