The past few weeks has seen our pet sitters battle through the most atrocious of weather conditions to arrive at their destinations. Both on the visiting and live in side.
Since our visiting pet sitting service, covers Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Bovingdon, Harpendon, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard, Tring, St Albans and surrounding areas, traveling proved both laborious and time consuming, however, we are pleased to say that every cat and caged animal in our care was reached, even though some days our pet sitters did not finish until 8 p.m after an early morning start.
I think that the worse case was in Berkhamsted, where we were feeding both cats and chickens. One of our pet sitters arrived one morning, to find that the electric fence surrounding the hen house was felled with the sheer weight of snow. Thankfully the chickens were all huddled together inside of their house and safe from any marauding foxes!
It’s testament to the dedication of our pet sitting team, who in some instances parked on the flat and trudged up hills to ensure that all our clients pets were fed and watered. In another case a sitter dug her way out of a foot of snow in Harpendon to reach her destination! Well done Sue for remembering your shovel!
