"A 4 week house and pet sit caring for Fagan & Scout The Whippets, Patsy The Horse, Venus The Kune Kune Pig and The Guinea Fowl in Norfolk, UK"

In June we were thrilled to be asked to return to Burgh Apton to care for Fagan and Scout, two beautiful Whippets, Patsy the Horse, Venus the Kune Kune Pig and four Guinea Fowl. The dogs loved their two walks a day and lots of cuddles. Patsy the horse needed feeding twice a day and given her medication, she also needed her fly mask on daily and moving from field to field. Her stable needed regularly cleaning out and her water refilling. Venus the pig needed feeding twice a day, fresh water and loved any banana skins and other fruit scraps we could save for her. The Guinea Fowl needed to be fed twice a day and we would check them in up on to their tree branch in the evening to make sure they were safe from the foxes over night.

The owners of our little farm were away for nearly four weeks, so we ensured they received regular updates by Whatsapp, along with photos and videos of all the animals to let them know that they were having a really great time with us. 

We were delighted with the 5 star review left by their owners Camilla and Jo.

Review received | July 4, 2022 – Yet another fantastic experience with Julie and Jonathan! They looked after all our animals with so much love and care. The whippets couldn’t have been happier, Patsy the horse and piggy loved getting pampered and the guineas and ducks were super chilled too. The blacksmith came for Patsy and they dealt with that too. They also kept in regular contact and sent sweet photos and videos of all the animals. Our house was lovely and clean and tidy when we got home and bedding and towels washed and hanging to dry. They really are brilliant animal/house sitters and we can’t recommend them highly enough. We are keeping everything crossed that we can have them back! Please!!! Many many thanks, Camilla and Jo 😊
