I was very happy with the care and attention to detail Siobhan took looking after my two cats. My older cat is 21, has to have medications for her heart, and has lost a lot of weight and become poorly when I’ve gone away before leaving them with another pet sitter. For this reason I’m nervous of finding a new pet sitter for them. My usual pet sitter has just moved away from Bristol so this was Siobhan’s first time with my cats. I was happy to return from my trip away to two very happy healthy cats. Siobhan was excellent at answering all my queries and put my mind at ease with detailed text and picture updates after each visit. This really was exactly what I needed so I could enjoy my time away and not worry about the cats care. She spent time getting to know them both and giving them attention and play as well as all the necessary other jobs such as water, food and litter tray. Top marks! Highly recommended. I’m a cat sitter as well so I shall be recommending her to my clients when I’m not available for them!

Rachel was extremely attentive when arranging my cat sitting requirements. I had booked a last minute trip and only gave a few days notice but she was so friendly and organised and put my mind at ease straight away. Finding someone new to come into your home and look after your fury friends is a big deal and a huge responsibility. I’ve had a few cat sitters before but I can honestly say Rachel has been the best. Whilst I was away she sent pictures every time she visited and put my mind at rest. When I returned home everything was perfect and my kitties were very chilled out and happy - it’s like I wasn’t even away! Rachel will now be my go to cat sitter and I will happily give references were needed. The best cat sitter in Reading by far and I trust her wholeheartedly. Thank you so much!!
