About Anita

Hey! I am Anita, a mother of two children,  and a part-time healthcare worker. We live with two lovely cats, including a Bengal and a tortoise-shell cat.I have done pet sitting for almost 6 years now as I love animals and I enjoy their company! Animals bring so much happiness and laughter in our lives and I could not imagine not having any pets 😺.

I do house visits when owners are away and have looked after cats, rabbits, dogs and parrot. My services depend on the individual needs of the owners and their pets, I understand routines are very important and every pet is different. I normally feed the pets, groom them, play with them and do personal care for them (e.g. cleaning cat litter box etc.). I also enjoy taking dogs out for their walks and going for long adventures!

I have had cats for the past 30+ years, and I am passionate about animal welfare. Pets really do become a part of your family and that is why it is so important that they are looked after with loving care even when they are cared for by someone else! My own cats are now 7 years and under 1, they were both rescued. We were lucky to have our senior cats to live until 14 and 15 years. One of them, Romeo, had been deaf since his birth so I understand how to look after pets with hard of hearing. 

 I fostered cats at our home for Cats Protection in 2019-2020, and found it a privilege to care for these cats before they moved to their forever homes. It is in our dreams to have a dog when our children are a bit older.

Anita is a great find for us… efficient and keeps in contact all the way through the visit with photos (if wanted) and lets you know how your pet is getting along. Great peace of mind for the more anxious of us when going away 😊

Once again Anita has been the perfect cat sitter 😊. She sends regular updates and photos which puts our mind at rest when we are away, knowing that or cat Poppy is in good hands. We have used Anita for the past few years and we could not recommend her enough 👍 .
