About Paula

I provide pet sitting in the comfort of your pet's own home, both overnight and daycare, short or long term. I am happy to travel within anywhere covered by public transport but do not offer boarding, so the price in this list is a daily rate for combined pet and house sitting.

I am an approved and insured member of Petsitters Alliance and have clear UK CRB (Criminal Records Bureau)/ DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) from 2012 and 2013.

I am an experienced, confident, reliable, flexible, honest, resourceful, calm, peaceful, trustworthy, and kind animal carer, familiar with and happy to care for all types of domestic pets.

I have been animal and home owner in the UK, and grew up with many different types of animals in Brazil, from tortoise to monkeys.

My first job in London was as "parrot nanny" for a pet supplier – I looked after all sorts of birds there but had a special mission to make company to the parrots! - Hence, I have a "tropical English accent".

I can provide energy healing, also known as spiritual healing and reiki, to pets and plants. I am a zen soul who cultivates peace, so his energy will be around too.

In addition to adoring your pets and looking after your home as if it was mine, I can water your plants, sort post, and whatever else needs to be done.

Note on fees:

Considering that pet sitting is my second, extra income (I will bring my mobile office to work from your home!) and that I am a big fan of Solidarity Economy, I offer my services on a pay what you feel right basis if the fee listed here is beyond your means.

I believe it is the most fair and honest way to work with something I love so much – and it allows me to offer my services to those who may not be able to afford proper care for their beloved pets. Make me an offer!

    We took a two week vacation, and knowing that Paula was there to take care of all of our pets was very reassuring, they love her, and look very comfortable with her. We came back to some very happy and relaxed pets!

    I found Paula to be very reliable and dependable. She faced some initial difficulties with our dog who tends not to take easily to strangers and managed to forge a good friendship with him by remaining calm and showing him warmth and respect.
