We have four cats and one of them became ill two years ago which meant her having to take lots of medication twice a day. Since that time, we have neglected going on any breaks or holidays as we didn’t trust anyone enough to give our cat her medication. As I’m sure most cat-owners can attest to, it can be a tricky task and certainly no mean feat!
We decided recently that, after two years of our cat now fairly used to being given medication, we would book a small getaway for a weekend. That’s when we found Debbie!!
Debbie replied quickly and came round to our home for a visit to get to know the cats and also offered to give Tigger her medication, so that we could see she was able to. This was the main concern for us, as the other cats come and go as they please, but we really needed someone who understood the importance of Tigger getting her medication and Debbie handled this perfectly and professionally.
We also have a very timid cat who mostly stays in our wardrobe, but she was more than happy to come out to see Debbie and even let her stroke her which is a massive tick in our books! It speaks volumes about the person that Debbie is – she can bring even the most timid of cats out of their shells and make them feel comfortable!
Unfortunately, on the first full day of our weekend break, we had a call from Debbie to say that Tigger had to be taken to the emergency vets as she was limping and her paw was cold, but despite this being a stressful situation, we absolutely knew that Debbie was handling it and she communicated with us all the way through and checked in with us once we had heard back from the vets.
We cannot truly express the gratitude and appreciation we have for Debbie, it's very likely her care and attention saved our cats life. She truly cares about cats and is a credit to her profession. I would highly recommend Debbie and we will be using her again in the future! The cats love her so much they can't wait for us to go away again!
