Small Animal Sitting
We know smaller pets often have lots of character too! We know how important it is to provide them with daily contact to keep them happy and content. We can come and visit them while you’re away and clean out their hutches or dens and provide company. We can give them exercise outside their pen in an enclosed area .We can replace log’s for your guinea pig to gnaw on, place vitamin c tablets in their water for them, replace your rabbits hay and top up their supply of green vegetables, hide food around your rat’s den for them to find, replace cardboard tubes that your hamster runs through, and offer your chinchilla a daily dust bath to enjoy. Using a small animal sitting service rather than a pet boarding service means that your pet doesn’t have to travel in the car to a different environment and it means you don’t have to travel to collect your pet when you return home. Our small animal sitting service cares for animals in the St Albans area. Our visits are 20 minutes long meaning we have time to provide company and playtime for your pet not simply cleaning out their cage and changing their food and water bowls. We recognise that smaller pets are individual characters and may not like handling so we will follow your care requirements. In addition to this, we can carry out basic household tasks such as watering plants, opening and closing blinds and taking out waste and recycling bags. We have experience in caring for smaller animals such as chinchillas, mice, gerbils, hamsters and fish too. If you have a dog or a cat and a smaller animal in your household then we don’t charge any extra for caring for them.

Lisa did a great job of looking after my cheeky pet bunny whilst I was away. She sent me some lovely messages and pictures of him running and jumping around his room. It was nice to relax knowing that he is in safe hands and getting lots of attention and cuddles!
Lisa is such a kind, honest and trustworthy person and I have already recommended her to other friends.Priscilla Aghandi
