The cat man of Aleppo

Mohammad Alaa Jaleel lives in Aleppo in Syria where he looks after more than a hundred stray and abandoned cats.

Peter did a fantastic job of looking after our cat during our recent holiday. He (the cat, not Peter!) was somewhat stressed following a recent move but we returned from holiday to a healthy, contented cat.

Peter was also great at sending us pictures and updates to alleviate our concern at leaving him. We felt rather guilty that Peter had the unpleasant task of clearing up a few accidents (he does it to us too!) but Peter did a better job of that than we do!

Our recycling was put out so we didn’t have to return to an overflowing bin as well! Peter’s love for animals is clear – as soon as he showed me pictures of his cat, I felt certain we were leaving our pet in safe hands.

I will most definitely be in touch with Peter for future holidays, and would be happy to provide a reference if anybody wishes to speak to a prior customer.

Sarah, Warlingham

Peter has come in to feed our cats on a number of occasions over the last couple of years whilst we have been away. We have four cats and when Peter first came to meet them you could tell straight away that the cats were very happy to be in his company as he has a natural affinity with animals.

Peter has always been very reliable and accommodating and will even take the bins out if required. He spends time playing with the cats, not just coming in to feed and leaves everything clean and tidy. We have always come home to “contented cats” who don’t seem to be that bothered that we have been away at all.

Bev & Nic, Chaldon

Following a total breakdown in 2015 I rehomed 2 beautiful cats whom I totally adore; they have been a lifeline and raison d’être during a terribly bleak time. Peter and his family have now been looking after my boys whenever I can get away to my retreat and, as I am a teacher, this is always at peak times. To be able to still call in twice a day over New Year and also this coming Easter has given me the freedom to continue my road to recovery; I would not be where I am now without their kindness and support.

Peter and Jayne will come along to meet you well in advance and meet your pets. They genuinely love the animals and have been totally immune to the bizarre range of “gifts” my boys present (decapitated baby rabbits, birds, rodents of varying sizes, some intact, some not, and the worms…..let us not forget the worms….). They are totally trustworthy and carry out any instructions to the letter regarding feeds etc. and will even take the bins in and out, water plants and alter heating if the weather suddenly goes one way or the other!

I cannot recommend their service enough; they are truly kind, dedicated people who allow me to continue to heal safe in the knowledge that my gorgeous boys are content and safe in their own home when I’m away.

Due to a change in domestic circumstance, Peter Rudd has been walking our Labrador cross, Flora, for over a month now and she adores him. He clearly has a natural affinity with dogs and can deal with any situation. He is fully adaptable and accommodating to your own requirements and we highly recommend him.

Della, Warlingham

I have known Peter for several years. He is a very trustworthy and competent person. He has walked my dog for me when I needed extra help. He is willing to look after my dog, cats and chickens when I go away. I would therefore highly recommend him to you.

Janat, Warlingham

Peter is very trustworthy and reliable. He has looked after my cat and house many times when we have been away on holiday. I will be using his services next time I go away and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Jane, Sanderstead

Peter has been walking my 4yr old German Shepherd for the last 5 months and she adores him. She is not the easiest because she is very frightened by other dogs and barks very aggressively through fear. Peter is not phased by this at all – he seems to have genuine affection for Bonnie and she for him. He is reliable, trustworthy and I have no hesitation in recommending Peter.

Sandra and Marc, Woldingham

We were very happy with how Peter looked after our two cats when we were away for a week.
The cats were very content and looked healthy. He was very accommodating with some requests that we had. Peter is very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for pet care.

Henna, Warlingham

Thank you Peter for staying at our house and looking after Rocky our Husky/German Shepherd cross. He really liked Peter and had a few walks with him so they could get used to each other. They played a lot and judging from the fur, slept in the same room. Peter is trustworthy and obviously loves animals I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again, in fact we have already booked him for our holiday next year.

Caz and Pete, Warlingham

I called Peter to see if he could shut my chickens and ducks up for the night. It was the first time I had asked to use his services, although I know another person who has Peter for dog walking and is very happy with him. Peter met me before the day he was going to come and made sure he understood all that was required. I was delighted later on the evening he put the flock ‘to bed’ to see he had texted me to let me know all was well. It was a great relief to be able to go out knowing they were in safe hands. I also know of other people he has house-sat for and who have been delighted to be able to leave their dog at home whilst they holiday. Thank you Peter. I recommend you wholeheartedly.

Reverend Michelle, Warlingham

Peter has walked our dog Blue for a month now. He clearly loves animals and has a great way with dogs. Blue is a nervous and quite tricky dog to handle and Peter manages him in a caring and confident manner. Peter is reliable and trustworthy and I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Emma, Woldingham

Peter looks after our two dogs in our home when we are away. Our older dog is fragile and the younger one is very lively. Peter looks after them responsibly, catering for their differing needs and stays in touch while we are away. He looks after the house and is security conscious. He is caring, conscientious, reliable, punctual and trustworthy and we highly recommend him.

Thea, Godstone

Peter provides a reliable service. He is very trustworthy and our dogs love him. You can tell when Peter has walked them as they come back tired and chilled and we all enjoy some peace and quiet!

Katie, Old Coulsdon

I am delighted to recommend Peter who has walked my Border Collie, Dermott, three times a week since March. Dermott is not the easiest but Peter is calm and confident with him and Dermott is showing great progress as a result. Peter always sends a text to let me know all is well and I am very pleased with both his service and his professional approach.

Katrina, Warlingham

I just wanted to write, how wonderful Peter and his family were accommodating my cat for the pet services they provide. On the initial first visit, Peter’s mother was so kind and was eager to meet our cat. She was so understanding of my feelings of leaving our cat as I was very nervous leaving him and I wanted to make sure my pet was receiving the best possible care. Nothing was too small to ask, whether this was giving him treats, making sure he was safe at night or playing with him. I felt so happy i was doing the right thing for Zachary not unsettling him by moving him out of his home into a cattery. After seeing one cattery, I was very apprehensive of putting him a cattery causing him stress for just a weekend. However, I still wanted the individual care of someone playing with Zachary when we weren’t there. Peter and his family filled me with confidence that I had made the right decision because the love and care that was shown to our pet. I can’t highly recommend the pet services that is provided to your pet as our pet is part of the family and we wanted to make sure he was in a safe and caring environment whilst we were away so we could relax and Peter and his family made this happen. Thank you again and I will definitely be a returning customer in the future.
