About Liz

*😻 My CATchment area is West Didsbury (where I live), Didsbury Village, East Didsbury, South Chorlton, Withington, Northenden.*

Hey! I'm Liz, I'm 37 and originally from Stafford but have lived in Manchester for 10 years and this is my “forever home” now (I love the North West having gone to uni in Preston).

I work in Finance for a big clothing brand but now I work from home 95% of the time.

I’ve been catsitting in people's homes since 2016 on the CatInAFlat site, and I’ve completed 350+ separate holiday bookings since on that site (god knows how many visits in total that would have been), so you could say I’m tried and trusted :)

I have my own rescue moggie Tobias, who used to live in a hoarding situation with 100 cats. He now lives the life of Riley! This was after a few years of me being in rented flats which didn’t allow pets - hence becoming a catsitter to fill the void! Back home with my parents is my cat in my profile pic, Hebe, who is about 17 now. She is a rescue cat who was a teenage mum and got kicked out of her old house. I miss her very much as I don't tend to go back very often. She’s a tortoiseshell same as my first cat, Sparkie, who I watched being born in my friend's wardrobe age 6 and had til she passed away after a long and happy life. I've also had Moochie, a black and white rescue cat who we looked after in her twilight years; she had a broken jaw having been hit by a car. She was a sweet old lady (except on occasion when there was handbags and she used to whack Sparkie!)

You can rely on me to dote on your babies and treat (and sing in cat language to) them as if they were my own. Many sitters only visit for 20 mins or so but my visits are at least 45 mins and often longer in the evening if you have Netflix or Sky! (I think I’m the only person left in the western world to only have Freeview) I enjoy just being there and keeping your cats company; making sure they're not just fed, watered and cleaned out, but also don't get lonely while you're gone. It makes me very happy and also hopefully minimises the "cat sulk" on your return! (It’s nice to see some different surroundings too since being stuck WFH during the pandemic)! I don’t take on more than 3 bookings in 1 day unless I can WFH from there, which means I can spend enough time with each and feed them at a reasonable hour. 

I'm one of those people who stops and chats to every cat sat on a wall, much to the bemusement of anyone watching. (Crap with children, but I'm fluent in feline). I’ve yet to sit a cat so far that I didn’t become friends with. (Dreamies obviously help, but I’d like to think it wasn’t purely cupboard love)

I will spam you with photos and videos every day while you are away for peace of mind, and tell you what they've been up to. Having a sitter in (their) own home is stress on your cats than a cattery! On that note, having a sitter has the added benefit of us looking after your property, having the lights on in the evening or opening curtains so burglars don't think you're away! Plus taking the bins out, collecting post etc. Anything to make your life easier please just mention. If I can be helpful - I will be helpful - for no extra charge. I'm also a dab hand with a houseplant so I can try and keep those alive for you. If you want me to clip your cat’s claws, I can do this for an additional £5 per cat (danger money!) and if you want any advice on quality food (I spend hours researching and have tested most...well Tobias has!) or which litter or toys may be best etc ask anytime as I’ve experienced a wide range of both through my time catsitting!

Get in touch :) I try and respond straight away but sometimes I have to check my diary first as I do get booked up on other sites x
