PET SITTER - The Face of Fulbourn Feline Services
Fulbourn Feline Services is run by Sarah Hayns. I am a trustworthy, local, professional with over 10 years experience in healthcare (including human and veterinary fields). I am fully insured, CRB-checked, registered with NarpsUK and have successfully passed the NarpsUK Pet Sitting Business Course. I have also completed the International Cat Care/Centre of Applied Pet Ethology advanced award in 'Feline Health and Welfare' with an overall mark of 94% (Distinction).
I am a life-long animal lover and have owned cats and dogs for over 30 years. I currently have a rescue cat and rescue dog who are both delighted to have finally found a loving home to call their own (see photos below). In addition to running Fulbourn Feline Services, I carry out voluntary work as a 'Lost and Found Researcher' for the Blue Cross. I can provide impeccable references from clients on my books (see below) and from previous employers - a Veterinary Surgeon and two Consultant Vascular Surgeons.
“Sarah took charge of our kittens (6 months) Yoshi + Yuri and our Hamster Sophie whilst we were away for a period of 12 days. Our biggest concern was the young age of the kittens, and having to leave them "on their own" for an extended period of time. But, then came Sarah – and to cut a long story short, on our return we found everything and everyone in a remarkable state!
On top of giving me peace of mind by sending me a couple of e-mails and pictures of our kittens on our absence, Sarah had provided us with a detailed "Home Visit Report", which documented the course of her visits twice a day. Reading through those notes, one could truly sense her love and affection towards those entrusted to her. We are very grateful for Sarah's extraordinary effort to keep everything and everyone healthy, happy and nourished – not just on a food level, but especially on a soul level! We are so grateful to have our cats back not the least "traumatized" from our absence, but merely confident, trustful and self-contained. It's obvious – they had a great time with Fulbourn Feline Services!
On top of that the household was kept in an (again) extraordinary state! The fact, that there was milk in the fridge and an extra food supply for the kittens on hand, made the late evening arrival even more convenient
I could go on and on with my song of praises – there are countless other details I could mention, all to be summarized: If you are looking for THE "feline expert" – Sarah's Feline Services is what you're looking for!”
Andrea Price, Great Shelford
"Sarah has always been totally professional and reliable. As a vet, I'm a fussy cat owner and I trust Sarah with Dylan absolutely. She has coped with his medication and also made me feel totally secure that he is being loved in my absence!"
Polly Compston, Cherry Hinton
"Sarah provides a friendly, professional and overall excellent cat sitting service. It is wonderful to find someone who is willing to put the time in to get to know your pets. Sarah is patient and thorough and I do not believe that our cats could be in safer hands when we are away. Worth every penny and a pleasure to deal with."
Craig Standen, Whittlesford
"We were made aware of Sarah through a friend and thought we would try an alternative to the cattery for when we are away from home. Instead of having to collect the cat from the cattery, and accept a day or two of sulking, we now come home to a very happy cat. Sarah provides an excellent service, is very professional, and clearly knows how to keep a cat happy! Knowing that she will be popping round really puts us at ease when we are away."
David Halliday, Cherry Hinton
"Sarah did a wonderful job looking after our girls. Lexie, our oldest, has diabetes so Sarah was very attentive to her needs and gave injections twice daily. Chloe and Zoe eventually made friends with Sarah, and the morning brushing routine for all 3 she established has continued! Great job and highly professional."
Pete & Sally Southwick, Linton
"Sarah Hayns looked after our cats for the first time this month. It isn't an easy job as the two cats have very different needs. Our elder cat is 15 and not in the best of health. While we were away she had a bad turn and Sarah coped with this admirably. She contacted our vet and talked through the problem with them, keeping us informed every step of the way. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Sarah. She is extremely professional as well as having a great affinity with cats. As well as looking after our two felines, she switched lights on and off in the house while we were away and picked up the post from the mat. We felt very confident leaving our home and our animals in such capable hands. We will definitely use the services of Sarah again and hopefully next time she will have an easier time with our two cats!"
Lorna Malone, Fulbourn
"We have employed Sarah (Fulbourn Feline Services) on several occasions to look after our two cats. The service on each occasion has been excellent and when our kitten was slightly unwell Sarah would send us a text each day keeping us updated on the kitten's health and administering medicine when required."
Antony Marrian, Fulbourn
"Excellent. I feel very confident leaving our rather fragile elderly cat with Sarah. I know that she gives her the attention she needs and that if there is a problem Sarah will deal with it. I can't recommend her highly enough."
Bonnie Holland, Fulbourn
"We love having Sarah visit and it's a brilliant service! Our dog Baz loves her coming round. It's such a relief to know that he's getting some play with someone who clearly loves animals."
