My name is Michelle and I am the owner of The Furry Godmother. I offer a range of pet care services that include dog walking, dog overnight sitting, cat sitting, and small animal pet care in Norwich and the surrounding areas.
Trusted, reliable and fully insured pet care services for cats, dogs & small furries in the comfort of their own home.
My passion for animals started at an early age. I always had animals growing up (rabbits, dogs, hamsters) and after taking in a stray cat, I became a weekend volunteer at a cat rehoming centre and loved it, staying for 10 years caring (and rehoming!) many cats along the way.
With a huge love for animals and a growing concern for animal welfare, I also chose to study Animal Science & Welfare as a mature student where I graduated with a foundation degree.
I am a huge animal lover and I currently have 2 cats and 2 guinea pigs, all rescue of my own but would have many more if I had the room!
Cats are very territorial, so are less stressed and are happier in their own environment. Our cat sitting service is a win-win for you and your cat. They get to keep their routine without the stress of going for a trip and staying at a different location.
Our experience of smaller pets has taught us they all often have lots of character ! We know how important it is to provide them with daily contact to keep them happy and content. Our service provides daily or twice daily visits whilst you’re away.
Michelle is most professional she always has so much time for our ragdoll cat luna. She is completely trustworthy and always goes that extra mile to give extra cat cuddles. I would always recommend Michelle for her caring nature towards all animals.
Michelle has been so accommodating with our ever-changing schedules often able to fit in a walk with not nearly enough notice (thank you and sorry!) She always turns up when she says she will, makes sure she knows if we need to have him back by a certain time. It’s clear Michelle has a love of animals and our dog simply loves going for walks with her which is evidenced by the excitement of her arrival and we know that he is so well taken care of. It’s always fun to hear what adventures they’ve been up to when he comes home! Cannot recommend highly enough!
My 4 dogs are the most important thing to me and I rarely trust anyone to look after them, which means I very rarely go away without them! When I first met The Furry GodMother my instincts immediately told me that here was a wonderful person who clearly loved animals and would take extra care of them. Even my nervous Little Miss Winnie felt calm and relaxed! Trusting them to someone else was a huge step for me but one I did not regret! I would highly recommend a 5* service.
Just want to say a big thank you to Michelle for looking after my 3 doggies.I don’t think they even noticed that we had gone away. I felt totally relaxed and happy whilst on holiday knowing that they were being so well cared for. I Can’t recommend Michelle highly enough, thank you once again xx
