Lucie – Owner/Manager
sitmyhouse was born out of frustration somewhat. As a busy Londoner, my dog was walked by a walker in the day, but sometimes I wanted a quick drink after work or could just do with an extra hour in the office to clear email. Being a responsible dog owner I knew it wasn’t fair to leave her and would therefore head home. I looked up services I could book last minute on an adhoc basis but didn’t find what I was looking for. Then my roof leaked and I took 3 half days annual leave…and the rest as they say ‘is history’.
I have over 15 years experience in senior management roles, I have a love for all animals and hope one day to own a pig!
Kim – Assistant Manager
I originally started my career as a Care Assistant, looking after elderly and providing palliative care which has been extremely rewarding. I am now able to combine my care experience with my enormous love of animals. I’ve owned dogs and cats all my life until recently and am enjoying being “Auntie Kim” to a number of my regulars through sitmyhouse. I have recently completed an accredited First Aid course for pets, so your dog, cat or even rabbit will be in very safe hands.
We also provide caring services for a number of clients. For example we can visit elderly relatives when their family are on holiday to provide peace of mind. I am usually the first to volunteer for these types of jobs as I definitely consider myself to be a “people person”.
Veronique – Sitter
I love nothing more than spending time with animals and have a particular fondness for Yorkshire Terriers and Shih Tzus. A perfect day for me would involve a walk around Epping Forest with a couple of gorgeous dogs to keep me company.
When I am not walking or looking after dogs I love the outdoors, whether it’s cycling, running or simply enjoying a BBQ in summer.
Deborah – Sitter
Tessa – Sitter
Tess (as you might guess from the picture) is the twin sister of Deb!
I was brought up surrounded by boxer dogs, guinea pigs,rabbits and cats in Ireland and have always loved animals. I’m an actress and also mum,but miss having animals of my own, so love having this opportunity to spend time with some great ones .In my spare time I’m a volunteer for The Silverline and am a voracious theatre goer and reader.
Emily – Sitter
My name is Emily and there is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with animals of all varieties, shapes and sizes. I am primarily a HUGE cat and dog lover, but over the years I have also had many other types of pets ranging from geckos to giant African land snails!
I have experience with looking after all sorts of domestic animals including dogs, cats, small mammals, birds and fish, and also with farm animals including horses, pigs, sheep, goats, ducks and chickens.
When I am not looking after people’s pets, I love to socialise with friends and family. I also enjoy keeping fit and am a keen walker, swimmer and cyclist.
Rupert – Sitter
I was born in Australia and grew up in Ireland, always having dogs, cats, budgies, rabbits, and guinea pigs over the years, and looking after friends’ animals including a snake and a rat! When I was young I wanted to become a vet but ended up a musician and actor, which is why I’ve recently moved to London. Both of those lines of work don’t leave me in a position to keep my own pets, so I’m very happy to be able to look after yours.
