The Problem of Cat Owners!
Most cat owners are reluctant to use traditional Cat Hotels or Catteries.
Unlike dogs, cats need their stable environment and do not cope very well with changes and a lot of activity. Subsequently cat owners are somewhat reluctant to use traditional Pet Hotel or Cattery services.
Those who have no choice but to resort to old fashioned cat boarding facilities end up worrying to the point that they do not enjoy their time away! But things do not necessarily have to be like that…
A Convenient Solution
Cats stay in the comfort of their own home and we will visits to feed, clean, play & cuddle.
In response to the aforementioned problem, we have created our Cat Home Visiting service to offer cat owners an alternative to traditional cat boarding establishments. Our Cat Home Visits are intended for those concerned cat owners who wish to leave their cats in the comfort of their own home while they are away.
Cat Sitting – Home Visits
A choice between one or two daily visits!
In order to accommodate the majority of cat owners, we offer a choice of either one or two daily visits. However, we are open to your suggestions and will try our best to accommodate any other visiting frequency you may require.
We feed, clean, play & cuddle
Since you are reading this page your are surely the type of cat owner who loves his / her cats to bits. Chances are that you spoil them whenever you get the opportunity to.
We go beyond just feeding and cleaning, we try to interact with the cats as much as possible (depending on the cat). Experience has taught us that although cats are somewhat independent, they still need a degree of human interaction. Through our cat sitting service, your cats will still get their daily required dose of human interaction.
We can administer medication & attend vet appointments
Many cat owners would need to administer some sort of medication to their cat/s. We are happy to administer any medication that your cats may need at no extra cost. Additionally we can also attend any vet appointments that may coincide with your planned time away!
Picture & Video Updates with a visit log file via a secure & encrypted link
A picture says a thousand words, and videos say even more! Therefore as part of our cat sitting service we take pictures and videos of the cats for you enjoy. You will be able to access these pictures and videos at your convenience from any computer, phone, tablet or any other smart device with an internet connection. This will help you put your mind at rest and enjoy your time away.
On top of that we also set up a log file where we write notes relating to every visit. In this way we make sure to give you as much feedback as possible.
You will be able to access all of these updates via a unique and securely encrypted link that we will create just for you. In this way we make sure to protect your privacy. We never published these pictures and videos unless you give us permission to.
Cat Sitting & Property Monitoring
We check and monitor the house to avoid you any unpleasant surprises when back
As part of our holistic approach our Cat Sitting Service gives you the added value of Property Monitoring. Your mind will be at rest knowing that there is someone taking care of your whole household and not just the cat.
Property Monitoring includes things like: watering any plants, taking in any mail as well as retrieving any parcels on your behalf. We also switch on an occasional light for the night so the property does not look vacant.
Additionally, we can also stock up your cat food cupboard and even buy some basic things like milk and bread for your return.
Cat Sitting – Introductory Meeting
An introductory meeting is essential to learn more about the service, get to know each other and the pet/s.
As with all of our services, the first step is to organise an introductory meeting. By organising this meeting you will not be committing yourself to use our service. During the meeting we will:
- Get to know each other
- Allow the pet/s to get comfortable around us
- Go over your particular situation and see how we can help
- Walk you through our convenient online booking system
- Show you how our updates system works
So please, if you wish to organise this meeting just get in touch.
The Benefits of Cat Sitting – Home Visits

Avoid the stress of taking your cat to a new and unknown place. Leave your cat safe and comfortable at home in his usual place and we will take care of the rest. An individualised cat sitting approach that can be customised to your cat’s particular needs and habits.
Cats get human interaction
Cats do not just get fed! We put in extra effort to give them an adequate amount of valuable human interaction. However this will vary depending on the cat’s character. Interaction can be in various ways from simply sitting on our lap to playing with your cat’s favourite toy.
Have peace of mind knowing that someone is looking after your property as well. We make sure the property looks inhabited to deter anyone from breaking in. We will also take care of any mail, water any plants and take care of anything else you may need us to.
