About Claire

Hi. I am a single mum to a wonderful 9 year old boy. He is my world. His needs are paramount. Anyone who is interested in me needs to (eventually) accept that my son and I are a package. If that is not something you feel you can do, I am not the one for you.

I have been single for 10 years and I miss having someone adult to talk to. However, this does not make me desperate in any way. I’d like to find someone who knows how to be a gentleman and will take the time to get to know me before even thinking things will go to the bedroom. I’ve been independent for a long time and it’s going to take someone pretty special to change that. In all, I am looking for a loving and fulfilling relationship that will eventually lead to the point where it includes an awesome physical relationship too. Not too much to ask is it?

I love cooking, tattoos, drawing, knitting and crochet (laugh all you like, it’s cool.) I love to laugh and find a lot of things funny – especially if it’s immature! I’m quite sarcastic so if you enjoy a bit of banter, that’s all good.

If you like what you’ve read, send me a message. I will not reply to any messages for one night stands or casual encounters as that is not what I am interested in! The only exception being Grard Butler. Lol.

Information For Pet Lovers: Siberian Allergen Levels

The feline allergen (Fel-d1) element is known to be produced by most cats according to researchers. Hundreds of adult Siberians were used in a study conducted by members of the Siberian Research. The data was collected in November 2009 from adult breeding Siberians. The study was conducted in Virginia based Biotechnologies laboratory.

Saliva samples were collected from each cat. They were tested and compared against other samples collected along with a bitter agent. Special actions were completed to ensure accuracy of information collected. The study had two elements that showed consistency including Sulfa and Metranitazole (Flagil). The rate of error varied depending on the cat with 40 percent in kittens under 9 months and 20 percent in adult cats. More advanced testing methods for breeds are available at KittenTesting.com.

The study discarded results using Citric Acid and Drontal to induce saliva. Previous studies have should Citric Acid has a tendency to affect results by changing flow rates of proteins and enzymes found in saliva. The ingredient was considered inapproriate for Fel d-1 allergen levels. Roughly 50 percent of Siberians had lower levels of Fel-d1 that average cats.

The study showed under 15 percent of Siberians could be in homes with dangerous or severe reactions to cats due to low allergen levels. More offspring was produced with low allergen mattings and lower levels of Fel-d1. Individual cats that were tested individually had between 0.1 mcg or about 16 mcg.   When the tests were conducted multiple times their results varied.

Some Of The Health Benefits of Being a Pet Owner

Some health benefits of owning a pet

Some health benefits of owning a pet


Pet lovers, who adore having a little friend around such as a dog or cat, may be doing their health well.  Over the years, researchers have gathered more evidence that lead many to belief pets are good for human health.  People with health concerns such as anxiety or high blood pressure may have more of an advantage.  Pets may help reduce hypertension and lessen anxiety affects.  Some researchers even feel your pet boosts your immune system.  While loving your pet may help your health, many are happy using their pet to help them get a dating companion.

Have allergies?  Studies claim kids who grow up with a furry friend are less likely to deal with advanced symptoms of allergies and asthma/  Few studies even looked at pregnant women having a pet in the home; babies born where shown to be less prone to allergic reactions based on evidence from blood testing upon being born.  Some had stronger immune systems.  So what’s the catch? In short, researchers believe babies who were exposed to dog allergens developed an immunity that may help their bodies fight bacteria.

Having trouble getting a date?  Dogs are considered one of the most reliable ways to get a date.  Well, at least increasing chances of getting attention from a potential date anyway.  If you’re not a social person or you tend to isolate yourself often, a pet may help you open up.  Researchers and psychiatrists believe having a pet, in particular a dog, may help people ease into social interactions with others.  Plus, pets tend to be an easy and natural way to get a conversation started.

Pets can male great companions for senior citizens.  Studies completed at a veterinarian university in California claimed Alzheimer’s patients seem more relaxed when an animal is present in the home.  Elderly individuals who are able to care for a pet have a companion they can exercise with, such as taking a walk.  In some cases, it helps with medical insurance. Some companies offer a discount to seniors who have a pet in the home if it part of their medical screenings.

Need a nature way to improve your mood? Researchers have learned that pets tend to have a way of improving your mood and even reducing depression.  People suffering from cancer, AIDS or other health conditions may also benefit.  How so? Studies have picked up chemical changes in the brain associated with mood.  Pets may help increase serotonin and pleasure & calming properties in the brain.  Data has also been collected on how the effects of having a pet may reduce plaque buildup in heart arteries; a potential heart disease factor.

Having a pet may help improve recovery for heart attack victims.  Some studies suggest heart attack patients who have pets live longer than those who had a heart attack without pets present in the home.  Pet owners who are male, were shown to have lower heart disease risk including low levels of cholesterol.

Being a dating site for pet lovers, naturally we recommend that you singles out there meet other pet loving singles. To browse profiles of single pet lovers in your area, please click here.

Choosing a Pet Sitter

Choosing a pet sitter

Choosing a pet sitter


Whether leaving to go out on a date or off to work, a pet sitter can be a good investment if your homework before hiring someone.  It’s common for pet owners to leave their pets at home alone but have you ever thought about a pet sitter?  Even if the idea has crossed your mind you may want to look into the idea of having a professional care for your pets while you are away.  You gain peace of mind knowing your pet is comfortable at home being tended to and it can be an option when friends or family are unable to care for your pets.  In choosing a pet sitter it helps to become familiar with services offered, observe their behavior during the interview process and learn background experience.

Ask questions. If the idea has popped into mind, consider interviewing potential sitters and ask about their history in providing care for pets.  What will they do during an emergency?  What kind of schedule would be followed during your time away?  How and when are fees paid for services? If the pet sitter runs a business you may want to ask about insurance or bonding; this helps protect both parties should something happen.  If they have insurance, ask for proof.

How emergencies are handled.  Review emergency measures the sitter plans to follow in case of an emergency, such as your pet falling ill or if the sitter is unable to provide care.  Natural disasters and bad weather situations may be other issues to review. How does the sitter reach you in case they need to contact you? Can they contact your vet if they can’t reach you if your pet needs immediate medical attention?

Review pet issues.  Discuss any issues regarding your pet’s health.  This may include any medications, behaviors or anything of significance concerning their well-being.  Allowing your pet sitter to learn more about your pet helps them provide good care.  Plus, it helps you learn more about related experiences of the sitter.

Discuss contract terms.  Professional sitters should have some sort of contract agreement that states pertinent details related to services offered.  Details may include dates and times of services scheduled, type of service provided, fees, key access, etc.

Check background and get references.  What feedback has been given about the sitter from previous clients? What were things people liked and disliked about their services?  Ask for contact information from previous clients and contact them to learn about their experience and see if they would recommend them.

Key access and home concerns.  If the sitter needs a key to access the home, review policy details; mention where the key should be stored in the house after being used.  If you plan to use their services in the future they may have a standard procedure.  Any issues with your home should be mentioned so the sitter is aware of them; maybe a door doesn’t lock the way it should or you have a security alarm system.

Compulsory Dog Microchipping Law On Its Way

 Is Your Dog Microchipped?


Is Your Dog Microchipped?

Some twenty years or so after the then Home Secretary Ken Baker hinted at compulsory Microchopping for dogs, another conservative government is finally putting it firmly on the statute books. Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson has announced that all dogs in England must be microchipped from 6 April 2016.

The reason Kenneth Baker attempted to have all dogs microchipped back then was to curb the problem or dangerous dogs, today though, dangerous dogs are still a problem, the biggest problem is reuniting lost dogs with their owners and finding new home for dogs that are dumped by irresponsible owner. At present, it is estimated that about 100,000 dogs a year are lost or stolen, with the tax payer footing a bill of £57 million spent process lost dogs. Dog charities nationally probably spend twice that sum providing temporary home and health care to dogs in their care.

It is also planned that the compulsory microchipping bill will contain a clause that plugs the loophole that meant owners of dangerous dogs whose dog attacks a person on private property can escape prosecution.

The new compulsory microchipping law is broadly welcomed by most dog charities, others are more critical. One person said the problem is not with microchipping as 60% of dogs in the country are already microchipped but reuniting lost dogs with owners who usually don’t bother to update the details on the microchip. Microchip is the size of a grain of rice, it contains details of the dogs including contact information of the dog, it is said to be relatively inserted under a dog’s skin without pain to the animal.

Some dog charities such as Dogs Trust are providing free microchipping services to dog owners. Other dogs and animal charities either offer microchipping free of charge or at significantly reduced rates. Private microchipping cost about £30. You can find out more about microchipping your dog at Dogs Trust.
