About Gemma

Hi my name is Gemma, and I am a crazy cat lady. 

I am a charity finance manager in Exeter city centre as my day job. Over the years I have owned four cats, ranging in ages from 2 years to 17 years old. I have volunteered with Refuge4Pets, and donate regularly to Cats Protection. My pet-sitting business is carbon neutral through Ecologi. 

I am happy to look after all cats from the independent aloof cat, to the cuddle-hungry elderly (they will always hold a special place in my heart), to the rambunctious kitten. Multi-cat households are also fine with me. I recently completed a 'Pet First Aid and CPR' course.

My service area is the last image on my photo gallery (St. Thomas/St. Davids/city centre). Morning visits outside of this area may not be possible on weekdays depending on your specific address and dates. 

I'll send you a photo each day with a little update on how the visit went. 

I'm also happy to keep an eye on any smaller pets that live with your cat/s (hamsters, guinea pigs, rodents, birds, fish etc.). I can water any houseplants, collect parcels from wherever the couriers have hidden them, and take out the bins. 

The main areas I cover are St. Thomas, Exeter City Centre, and St. Davids. 

I usually do pet visits in the mornings before 9.30, or evenings around 5.30, but I'm happy to discuss specifics.

Gemma is an amazing person. Professional, caring and certainly a cat lover. She looked after our Chloe for 16 days. We came back to a healthy and happy cat.

Highly recommended.

Thank you Gemma 😊

I can't recommend Gemma enough - very professional and conscientious, lots of photos when we were away and a happy, relaxed cat when we got back (which is the ultimate test!). 5 stars all round!
