About me

About me...

Hello all,

My name is Diana, having had a love for animals since childhood, later as a mature student studied Animal Care and Management at Capel Manor College (Level 3 qualification- Enfield branch). I enjoy learning and gaining new insights into animal care and husbandry in which I have qualifications in Veterinary Support, Professional Pet Sitting Practices and experience working within the animal care sector.


I have been pet sitting now for five years and I love every minute of it. I love meeting new clients and getting to know their little ones during the time I look after them, finding out their different personalities and quirks... It is a joy that I can call this my work. 


I've always had a love for animals, they give us so much and to care for them in return is the very least we can do for the way they enrich our lives. 


While growing up we had three cats; Sam, a chilled out black

and white cat, aka the Gentle Giant. Ziggy, a ginger tom who enjoyed the quiet life and Pazzo, a beautiful black cat, he truly was my soul mate. Holly, our grey Netherland Dwarf rabbit, a kind and peaceful little guy who would jump on my back in the garden andchill. (Yes I got the inspiration for the name from Watership Down.) and goldfish; Goldie and Bob, who I trained to swim through a small hoop! I’ve loved having the opportunity to look after all of them and I miss them every day.  I've recently had to say goodbye to my beautiful eleven and a half year old bearded dragon Lulu, my sweet girl.

I realise how important it is to have someone who is trustworthy looking after your beloved pets. I care deeply about the welfare of animals and I can assure you that I will look after them as if they were my very own.

​I have four years experience working and volunteering in the animal care sector; as an animal carer and receptionist in a vet and pet shop and as the managers assistant at a Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service in Enfield, a charity run centre where injured wildlife are taken in, rehabilitated and released back into the wild. The animals that aren’t able due to their injuries live the rest of their lives happily at the centre. They also take in farm animals who's owners are unable to look after them due to unforeseen circumstances. A life changing and truly humbling experience which I shall continue to be a part of.

I've also recently become a member of the London Wildlife Rescue Unit, a charity run organisation who rescue birds (mostly) and mammals who are in need of medical attention and are taken to various rehabitation bases in and around London. We also rescue birds who are in need of relocation, such as nesting birds on balconys, shops, corporate buildings and larger waterbirds who have been kicked out of the nest who arent able to leave due to their size (young swans need a lot of ground space for take off!). Very fast paced and keeps you on your toes!

Before my animal care career started I trained as a safari field guide in South Africa, an amazing experience which fed my passion about the animal world to animal behaviour, later leading me into the animal care industry.

I also spend my time as a nature photographer, being out in nature is something I’m passionate about.

EXOTIC PETS:

I'm also experienced with reptiles, amphibians, birds, farm animals such as ponies, goats, sheep and pigs, and smaller mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters etc so I can feed and change the bedding for them too :)

I look forward to meeting you!

Jo,

Diana, looked after our 2 ragdoll cats for 12 days and I have to say from start to finish Diana was excellent. From the initial introduction to where Diana made me feel very comfortable, to working through how it works, to the consistent communication through videos during the pet sitting, whilst we were away, was outstanding. Brilliant service and I would recommend Diana as she is definitely someone I will use in the future.

Yuliya,

Diana is an exceptional pet sitter! She is reliable and responsible, and most importantly, she really loves animals.

 

We've been using her services a few times and always got exceptional care for our cat Mars ˆ-ˆ

I waited for a new video with him every day while we were out, it was very convenient and also very sweet.

Last time Diana checked on Mars our lift didn't work for a few days (we live on the 6th floor) and she never complained about it (holy person!)

 

You can't find a better pet sitter if you live in Twickenham.

Amanda,

Diana has looked after our cat for two weeks and also our tortoise. To say she cares for them as well as we do is under-selling her, she treats them with such care and fondness, I think they will miss her. The videos she sent were fantastic and really enhanced our holiday. I cannot recommend her highly enough- she is amazing and clearly cares a great deal about animals. She even managed to keep my plants alive during a drought!

Diana was wonderful with our cats, she kept us really well updated on how they were with pictures and videos. She clearly loves animals and the cats were both super happy and relaxed when we got back from our trip. Would highly recommend!

Anne,

Really happy with Diana who looked after our two very shy cats for the first time this week. She followed all my pernickety instructions to the letter (!), paid attention to detail, and was great at keeping us up to date and responding to messages. Everything was impeccable and we found two happy and un-stressed cats when we returned home.

Yuliya, 

We were so lucky to find Diana! She took care of our cat Mars like he was her own cat🤍

 

Diana is an experienced pet sitting professional: she is gentle, polite and responsible. From the videos she sent us I saw Mars was happy every time she walked through the door) When we returned home I saw our cat was like we never left, even his plate was cleaned (though we didn’t specify this with Diana).

 

I strongly recommend Diana as a pet sitter and animals lover.

We will definitely request her services again🙌

Helena,

Diana is absolutely great! We've used her many times to look after our cats when we've been away & Diana has made the whole process stress-free. She is professional yet caring & takes her time to develop a real relationship with your pet, understanding their character and needs. She is reliable, flexible and always in touch - the best cat sitter we've ever had!

Charlie, 

Diana is just great. She looked after Hertha, our cat, as well as after our rabbit Onana and both were absolutely safe and happy. When a difficult situation with our door occurred, she phoned us immediately and solved it. She really loves animals, so that we can have a clean conscience when we leave our furry friends in her care. And she sends lots of lovely pictures and videos! Can't recommend her highly enough.

Diana is absolutely wonderful, she was so accommodating and great at getting back to me.

My cat loved her and she sent me daily updates which made me feel very comfortable as it was the first time I had left him with a sitter.

Will absolutely have Diana sit Billy again, very glad to have found her, particularly around the festive period!

Lucy,

We’re so happy to have found Diana! She has given our house bunnies twice-daily visits on several occasions now. She is always extremely reliable and trustworthy, and absolutely fantastic with our bunnies - so caring and thoughtful. They definitely want for nothing and are incredibly content with her care! Diana’s communication is amazing, and she’s sent updates with the most wonderful photos/videos every visit. We’re able to completely relax on holiday knowing what great hands our bunnies are in. She has gone above and beyond and kept them spotless, too. Thank you so much, Diana!

Charlotte,

Diana was amazing - Leon is often a nervous cat but he warmed to Diana straight away. We loved the pictures Diana sent of her playing with Leon - he loved it and we knew he was in good hands. Would recommend Diana to everyone and we will definitely be engaging with her again!
