My name is Zoe and I am a local girl through and through. I was born in Leigh on Sea and went to Westleigh School. Ive only recently moved out to Thorpe Bay. I have been running Claudine's Pet Services since 2009 and I thoroughly love it! I have been around animals all my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My pets make my house a home and I know you must feel the same because you are here reading my site, looking for a perfect carer for your little buddies.
I've been lucky enough to have budgies, fish, hamsters, gerbils and cats. I have three cats at the moment: Alfie (he is a Maine Coon and a total teddy bear) and my latest two additions - Gruffalo and Wilbur, made three!
When I was made redundant from my job in the city in 2008, I decided to take time out to discover what I would really like to do next. During this time I became a volunteer at one of the RSPCA centres in my area. This is where I was introduced to these two new little chaps. They were the weakest two in the three litters which had just been brought in - so I offered to foster them. This entails giving animals lots of tlc, lots of feeds, visits to vets etc. After 1 week of looking after them, I knew I couldn't part with them and so we all live together now. All three get on 99% of the time.. food time is a busy time in the kitchen but I love it and I wouldn't change a thing.
I sponsor a dog at Dogs Trust, a cat at Cats Protection and give regular donations to WSPA and RSPCA.
