I cannot recommend Emily highly enough! My cats are the most precious thing in the world to me and leaving them with a cat sitter is always a bit of a worry, but I would now never hesitate to ask Emily to look after them! It’s clear that she is a cat lover herself and that really showed in her care and attention. She didn’t just feed the cats, but actually spent time with them and made sure that they were happy and content each day. She also provided us with pictures and updates, which was much appreciated. One of our cats requires medication twice a day and Emily had absolutely no problem administering this. She really was the most perfect cat sitter that we could have wished for. If you need a cat sitter, do not hesitate to book her!

We hired Janelle to look after our two precious cats from 7th to 9th March 2024. She took the best care of our cats, precisely following our directions and recommendations. She proved to be very trustworthy and reliable, which put my partner and myself at ease during our absence. Communication with Janelle was fluid, with an update accompanied by photos or videos of our two cats being sent over to us after each visit. It was evident from the videos and photos she sent us that our two cats were exceptionally comfortable in her presence. One of our cats is very fearful by nature and had never felt as comfortable around a pet sitter as she felt around Janelle, approaching her, playing with her and smelling her fingers. I very happily recommend Janelle to anyone looking for a pet sitter, and would definitely contact her again with future pet sitting opportunities.
