Fur Away Tails Pet Sitting Service has been caring for pets along the Norfolk, Suffolk border for several years.

The business is run by me, Melissa Pickett, and began through my love of animals and the difficulty in trying to find someone to look after my pets while I was away, as you know you can't always rely on friends and family. When I was 4 years old my dad bought home an Old English Sheepdog pup, since then I've never lived without an animal sharing my life. The current line up consists of 2 horses, 1 Shetland pony and a rabbit. Initially I started part time in the early 2000's and the business built successfully allowing me to turn it into a full time professional service in 2006.

I am police checked, qualified (yes, there is a pet sitting qualification!) insured and experienced so you can be assured your pets will receive the care, love and exercise they need whilst you are away.

How Fur Away Tails works

After a new client has contacted me, we arrange a suitable time to meet and more importantly for me to meet their pets. At the meeting I will learn as much about the pets personality, routine and quirks as possible.

I have a booking form for the client to fill in which has all relevant info regarding their pets e.g. vet details, feeding requirements etc. at this point we usually schedule the pet service the client requires and arrange key collection etc. All booking forms are securely kept separate from keys, all keys are on uniquely coded fobs containing no personal information.
