Hiya! My name is Stephanie McGonigle, I am a self employed pet sitter and artist from Greenock, Scotland. My two passions in life are animals and animation. After being the go to person amongst friends and family to look after their pets while they were on holiday for a couple of years, I took the next step and started pet sitting for local clients in 2016.
When looking after pets I love to keep them company and play with them to ensure they get all the exercise and enrichment they need. I also love taking dogs out for long walks on their favourite routes and explore new ones.
I am qualified in Pet First Aid and covered by Pet Business Insurance. I can provide references and a copy of my Disclosure Scotland.
. I would love to meet you and your pets if you ever need a loving and responsible pet sitter in Inverclyde and the surrounding areas.
I was out on a walk with my family when I was 9, we found a tiny kitten in a bush in the Greenock cemetery. We took her in and called her Casper.
Casper loved cuddles and had a wee toy kitten she used to carry about everywhere with her.
She was my best friend for 18 years.
A couple of months after Casper crossed the Rainbow Bridge we adopted a wee kitten.
We called her Meeko after the raccoon in Pocahontas because of her stripey tail.
She really lives up to her name by standing on my shoulder and trying to steal my food. Meeko lives with my mum and comes to stay when she is on holiday.
When I moved into my own house with my fiance we adopted a wee budgie and called him Chester.
He is a bird of many moods. Sweet dancing song bird one minute to rage puff the next. He's also a bit of a narcissistic gymnast with a millet addiction.
He likes to sit and observe the dogs and cats who come to board with us.
My service area is Greenock, Gourock, Port Glasgow, Inverkip, Wemyss Bay and Kilmacolm.
