How The Pet Sitting Service started

Hi I’m Emma & I own & run The Pet Sitting Service.  I live with my two cats Jessie & Walt and husband Anthony. I love cats & have always had them as pets. 

Back in 2003 whilst booking a holiday, I realised that pet sitting services were hard to come by. We couldn’t find anyone to look after our cat Apple who was a very shy & nervous cat so she wouldn’t have got on well in a cattery.

I decided to leave my full time job at The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, where I worked in recruitment vetting new security staff.  I began pet sitting & it took a little while to build a client base.  Soon recommendations helped me along the way – no Facebook back then to help spread the word!  All these years later I feel very lucky to have a job I absolutely love.

The main benefit of my service is that I don’t have a team of helpers so its always me that you deal with.  This really helps me build a relationship with your pets.  By not having a different person each day your little one gets to know me & this builds their trust in me.
