Often our clients and friends ask about our travels and our house and pet sitting experiences and we thought that a blog would be a good way to share our stories both past and present.

We have met and made friends with some lovely humans, canines and felines over the past 5 years and we hope that you enjoy reading about our pet sitting and house sitting experiences as much as we enjoy regaling our "tails"!

Eye swelling remedies.

We are battling the high winds and snow this week in the Cotswolds.  Spring is almost here and the snowdrops have appeared.

The weather is so cold the snow is staying on the fields.

One of our charges, a mischievous pony has injured his eye trying to escape into a much more inviting field.  The eye was undamaged but the surrounding area was quite swollen.  A good tip I learned from the groom was to soak a teabag in some warm water and hold it over the affected area.

It was amazing, I applied the teabag and held it there for a while and within a few hours the swelling had gone down dramatically.

Tea bags work well because they have natural tannins that act as astringents.

We will add this to our bag of tricks to take with us.
