Pippa & me

Gilly Mulford FInstAM


Having owned hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, cats, dogs and horses I know how important our pets are to us.  Not only do they enhance our lives by giving unconditional love they have a huge impact on our physical and metal well-being.

It is only right that we afford them the same love and attention that they give us.

Not all animals are suited to boarding environments and this is why we offer a service that accommodates them in their own home.

Our current clients include cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, guinea pigs, tortoise and bees.

I have a passion for giving you back precious time so you too can enjoy having a break when you need it.  And I get to share cuddles with the most amazing pets!

Caroline & Martin 

Associate Pet & House Sitters

Caroline and her husband Martin have over 18 years’ experience of cat and dog ownership, with Martin also owning rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets. He also rescued battery hens as a youngster and nursed them back to happy, fully feathered, egg laying ‘pets’. 
Their dog was a rehomed rescue with some interesting quirks, (namely cats, lawnmowers, wheels, roads, and other dogs), so they have years of experience in managing happy and safe walks, whilst maintaining high levels of vigilance for potential issues! 
Their own pets were never put into kennels at holiday times because they know how important it is for animals to have their routines maintained in their own safe and familiar environment. 


Caroline and Martin have taken the opportunity to retire early from the rat race, and whilst owning their own pet is not possible at this time, due to some travelling commitments, they have the passion, time, energy and enthusiasm to care for your pets in your home. They also have experience in administering medications.  Both have a current DBS in place and Caroline has undertaken a pet first aid and CPR course and has Public Liability Insurance.

Tor ​

Associate Pet & House Sitter

Fur babies can find absent owners a stressful and anxious time and need specific cares and efforts to continue their routines, and keep as much consistency in their lives, to make sure they feel as calm and normal as possible whilst you are away.


Tor looks after every pet as if they were her own and loves the little (and big) personalities that they have. She relates to, and understands, each animal so they get used to her and trust that she is in the pack. Their safety, security and wellbeing is central each day that they are in her care and you can trust that your preferences are followed, to ensure the happiness and health of your four-legged loved one.

They both own properties in the UK and fully appreciate home owners' expectations about how properties should be properly looked after. They are open to all enquiries, but we tend to specialise in larger rural properties, of which they have a wealth of experience & thus an excellent awareness of the special care & attention that these properties require.
