Hello my name is Sonia, and from a very young age I have always had a passion for looking after animals and wanting to work with them, so here I am!
After a long time working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I decided to make changes and follow my heart into something that I really wanted to do.
I would love to have the pleasure of looking after your pets, and attend their needs while you are on holidays or away long hours and unable to tend to them for whatever reason. This will give you peace of mind that your pet is safe, fed and happy in your absence.
I believe I have a lively and outgoing personality which enables me to engage positively with you and all your pet/s needs. I am extremely caring and professional, organised and flexible.
Throughout my life I feel very blessed to have been able to be surrounded by animals. Cats, birds, hamsters, dogs, etc..
This is one of my greatest passions.
Music: From the age of 6 I have always been interested in music, both singing and playing the guitar. I took part in national singing competitions and always came first. This has encouraged me to pursue my musical talent through the years. Music is still a big passion in my life and I occasionally teach guitar to children and teenagers. Regularly I attend musical concerts and events.
I love DIY & Decorating. Since moving house 5 years ago I have completely re-decorated my home. I found this extremely enjoyable, expensive and therapeutic. I do love to see the final results! (Though I want a rest before I start again.)
Exercise – I love the outdoors! Cycling is a form of exercise I regularly enjoy together with yoga, long walks, aerobics & Zumba. Bearing in mind my Sardinian background, I would like to re-kindle my love for salsa dancing.
My sitting service is a great alternative to place your pet in a cattery or kennel. Especially felines which tend to get naturally stressed. Your pet will be much happier in the familiarity and comfort of its own environment.
I am conversant in several languages, English, Italian, Spanish, Sardinian and have a very good understanding of French and Arabic.
As part of my own professional development as well as being a feline lover I have completed several courses based around the welfare of animals and felines which includes a pet first aid course. I am currently in the process of studying feline Psychology and behavior.
I am DBS/CRB checked and have fully liability insurance including key loss and replacement.
Your pet will be provided with love and companionship with exceptional care.
