We would have no hesitation in recommending Skittering Pig. Julia has looked after our two bunnies many times and we have always been extremely happy with the service she provides.

Julia looked after our daughter's two hamsters for almost two weeks whilst we were away. She kindly emailed us when we were away to let us know how they were (which my daughter especially appreciated). Our two hamsters returned home refreshed from their own little holiday! Thank you Julia. We definitely recommend the Skittering Pig!
