Whitburn Whiskers Pet Sitting for South Shields and Sunderland
Whitburn Whiskers is your friendly cat sitting service within Sunderland and South Shields as a reliable alternative to catteries and kennels. We look after your cats where they like to be best - in their own home. This is especially great for nervous rescue cats and those cats that just don't like change - especially outdoor felines who still want to be able to go outside and stick to their everyday routines. There's no need for vaccinations or that dreaded cat carrier struggle and long goodbye on the morning of your holiday!
Whitburn Whiskers is a professional service with a strong focus on personal touches. We're not a nationwide company or franchise but a local, friendly, husband and wife team. Our biggest aim is to develop long-term relationships with pet parents and their furry friends. For that reason, we know that peace of mind will be your biggest priority so we make it a point to stay in touch with you via text/email/facebook/twitter (take your pick) while you're away so that you're sure your pets and your home are being looked after.
We have a lovely following on facebook that lets us show pictures of our happy furry friends and what their owners think about the service we provide. Find us on facebook or visit our website to find out more.
Look forward to hearing from you soon!

"Thanks very much for the excellent service from arranging the service to carrying out the care. I really appreciated the visit beforehand to meet and let you know of Marmite's ways! It put my mind at rest while I was on holiday.
The regular texts kept me informed that Marmite was coping well and also gave me the opportunity to pass on anything I had forgotten to tell you.
Marmite is much happier when I returned from holiday than usual so obviously hadn't missed me at all!
Would definitely use the service again and recommend to friends."

"I cant recommend Rachel highly enough. We have not long returned from our 2week holiday and came back to find our cat JJ content and happy and the house immaculate. We even found a little toy Rachel had made him in the food cupboard!
Before our holiday Rachel came out for a visit to talk through all of JJs needs and run through a checklist to ensure that we could go away feeling reassured everything was in hand.
We didn't expect to but received daily text messages, 'pussdates' we called them! This was really reassuring and put our mind at ease that all was well at home not only with JJ but with the house. We also received some very cute photos and videos!
We had never had anyone house/pet sit before but any anxieties we may have had were completely misplaced. Rachel is professional, reliable, and most of all she really loves the animals! We will definitely use her again and would highly recommend her to friends and family."

"Rachel recently looked after our four Bengal cats and four rabbits while we were away for the weekend. From the first initial email Rachel has been so friendly and helpful, she really put our mind at ease as we don't normally leave our pets overnight. She spent over an hour meeting them before we went away, and kept in regular contact while looking after them to let us know how they were all doing, including sending lots of pictures and a video of them playing with the toy she bought for the cats. Cannot fault Rachel at all and we are more than happy to use her again when we get married in March. Thanks again!"

"Fantastic service from Rachel who looked after our cat Roger. I had genuine peace of mind from daily updates by text on how he was getting on at home and an account of his adventures when we got home was great fun to read. Definitely recommend the service and we will use again in the future!"

"I can't recommend Rachel highly enough.
We have just returned from 2 weeks in America to find our much loved Bruce in great form and that is all down to Rachel's care.
What's clear is she loves animals and therefore I was, for the first time, able to go away and feel utterly confident he would not only be well cared for but loved as well!
He had to go to the vet whilst we were away and I was so reassured by Rachel and how well she communicated how he was.
Not only do you get daily updates but when we got home there was a daily dairy which was a joy to read and we could see his personality shine through.
We will most definitely be using her again and will recommend to everyone we know.
Thanks Rachel we, including Bruce, send our thanks!"

"Rachel has looked after maisie twice now and knows everything about her, it's lovely to go away and come back knowing that your pet is safe and more so my maisie didn't even look like she had missed us another main thing is Rachel is the niceset person you could ever meet, such a friendly bubbly girl and you can tell she loves doing what she does. I recommend her to everyone as i certainly will be having her again to look after maisie, thankyou Rachel you make us feel so relaxed when were away and I find that very hard to do on the best of days ❤ xxx"
