Pet Sitter Caroline Horler
Born in Reading, Berkshire - I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2000.
I had always wanted to work with animals - mum said I wanted to be a vet when I was five and seemed to always have a natural affinity with all types of animals.
I have worked in Central London as the head nurse of a busy referral centre since 2004 and that's where I first started pet sitting. When clients worried about going away and leaving their pets behind they came to me to ask if I could help.
After moving to Greenhithe in Kent and travelling in to London each day I realised that there was no one here able to take care of my own cat, Jaguar! And if I chose to go away I didnt want to put him in a cattery - hence the idea of caring4paws was born.
Not only did I realise that there was nobody nearby - I also realised there is no real regulation on being a pet sitter so a lot of people out there have chosen pet sitting as a way of escaping the rat race.
I feel that as a qualified veterinary nurse and a pet owner myself I have all the skills to provide the best level of pet care and this is why i have established caring4paws.
Now that the business has grown I have now chosen to work out of London to make myself more available to my four legged friends in and around Greenhithe and other areas in North Kent. But I do consider it important to keep nursing in order to maintain my skills and knowledge in animal healthcare - so I also work part time at Bayswater Veterinary Referrals in London.
My aim is to create a happy, safe and loving environment for your pets so that when you are away there is no need to worry - as they will be having a great time with me!

"Happy Customers in North Kent"
Caroline was great with my cat! She was well and happy when I came back. Caroline kept me fully up-to-date while I was away with texts on how the visit had gone. I was very happy when I got back home after a week away."
