Reviews from some happy owners.... 



Pauline Says: I have just returned from a week's holiday leaving my elderly cat with Julia. I am so happy to report that I returned to a happy pet, rather thank the stresses cat who I normally return to when I go away.

Julia is both professional and reassuring. She is also a very loving and caring lady.Tiger had "Auntie" Julia visit twice a day to do the essential chores of feeding and checking the cat litter status but she also spent ages cuddling and talking to Tiger. Twice daily messages including video clips and photos were sent to me, to reassure me all was well back home.

I would highly recommend Julia for any pet sitting or dog walking and will certainly ask her to step in on all future holidays.

Peter and Jan Say: We have been delighted with Julia's attention to our one eyed epilectic minus one femoral head ginger boy whilst we were away abroad on holiday. Julia's care of him has been outstanding. He is normally a very shy cat but obviously happy in Julia's company and loving care. We will certainly be requesting Julia's services again whilst we are away and we are sure Monty will be delighted to see her. If only cats could talk we are sure he would endorse every word we have written. Well done Julia for coping with our boy Monty!

Janet Says: Julia looked after my two cats and my daughters guinea pigs while we were on holiday and the service was second to none. Julia sent pictures everyday and let me know how they were doing. I would highly recommend Julia care for your animals if you are away - she is so thoughtful and kind. Brilliant service and a lovely kind lady - would highly recommend. Thank you Julia

Jordan Says: If you need your furry friends looking after whilst you're not there, Paws Purrs and Tail Wags is the One! Julia comes and looks after our Nelson whilst we are at work, for an hour. We wouldn't trust anyone else! We have a camera so can see how happy he is from the second she arrives until she leave. They go on a nice walk and then come back and have a play and some dinner. Julia will always make sure you're getting what you want out of her visits

Brian Says: Julia has been absolutely amazing. We were nervous about going away and leaving our quite nervous cat in the hands of a stranger, but Julia knew exactly where we were coming from and first of all came round for a Meet and Greet and then while we were away gradually introduced herself to Akira. Then over the days managed to really bring her out of her shell to the point that when we came back after a week, Aki was so relaxed and chilled it was like we had never been away. Julia came in twice a day to feed her, made notes of all her habits, food routine and medicine routine and spent more than the allotted  time with Aki. On top of that her communication was fantastic, constantly sending messages, updates and photos on WhatsApp, so we knew how she was getting on and showing ever more relaxed pictures of our darling cat. Would thoroughly recommend Julia to anyone else and just hoping she doesn't decide to move or quit this cat sitting thing ....She's kind of a cat whisperer!

Rachel Says: Julia is a wonderful lady who clearly cares deeply for animals and that is reflected in her service. She took the time to understand our cat's needs in respect of food and care and kept us updated with photos and messages so that we knew she was alright in our absence. We would definitely recommend her to any pet owner.

Steve Says: Julia was amazing with our cat Henry. He is a very nervous animal and needs medicine twice a day at a specific time due to having epilepsy. Julia was reliable on time and made sure he had his medicine, even if it meant giving it to him from any hiding space he could find. She even managed to stroke him which for a stranger is unheard of. Her communication was great and really put us at ease. Would 100% use again.

Lisa says: Julia's love for animals really shine through. We find her reliable and trustworthy and our dog is happy (and tired!) after his weekly walk with her.

(Dog - Baxter) ...Repeat customer since January 2018

Jenny says: Julia is a fabulous pet sitter. She sent me regular updates and pictures of my cat and goes above and beyond to help out. My only concern is my cat might be better looked after when I'm away. Julia obviously adores animals and I would highly recommend her

(Cat - Little Pushka).....Repeat customer since September 2017

Sarah Says: Julia has been simply  brilliant! After a week away I came home to a very happy and purry cat - a stark contrast to what she's been like after a week in a cattery. Julia was so accommodating from start to finish, with a free Meet and Greet and easy key drop off. She completely put my mind at rest with updates and photos while I was away, having got to know me and my concerns about leaving my cat - it was fabulous to hear she was coming out of her shell. 110% will be using Julia again. Pretty sure my cat is already looking forward to it!
