About Anita

Hey! I am Anita, a mother of two children, fulltime university student (Nutrition) and a bank elderly healthcare worker. We live with two lovely white cats, a Bengal cat and a Syrian hamster. I have done pet sitting for more than four years now as I love animals and I enjoy their company! Animals bring so much happiness and laughter in our lives and 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 27+ 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 13 years old, still active and affectionate brothers with their own personalities. One of them has been deaf since his birth so I understand how to look after pets with hard of hearing. 

  My newest addition is 6 years old rescue Bengal, super curious, loyal and energetic. 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.

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 👍 .

We have had Anita as our cat sitter for the last few years and we are absolutely delighted with her. We feel when we are away that our cat Poppy gets the best care and attention..Anita gives us daily updates and photos so we always know she is being looked after very well. I cannot recommend Anita enough as the perfect pet sitter !
