About Yumna

Hi there pet pawrents! My name is Yumna and I have been sitting and fostering cats for over four years. I've had pets since I was young but now that I am still finding my place in the world, I can't keep a pet so I love to nurture and help other people's pets in the meantime. Over the COVID lockdown period when catsitting jobs were scarce, I successfully fostered and rehomed 10 healthy and happy cats.

As you can see from my photos, I am an avid collector of cat selfies but after living with a friend with two labradors for a year, I've fallen equally in love with dogs and feel I have gained enough experience to care for them well. As a psychotherapist in training, I am aware of the value animals give to our quality of life and mental health and to return the favour, I love giving them the care they deserve.

As a student and part time waitress, I have a generally flexible schedule. I am comfortable with animals with special needs, special diets or require medication. I take instructions well and stick to them. In an hour's visit, your pet will be fed, their area cleaned and most importantly they will get some quality cuddles and playtime. 

Some reviews from clients (verification upon request): 

"Yumna is the best cat-sitter I have ever worked with! She took such good care of my baby. I was gone for a week and she made sure to stay in touch with pictures and updates. She played with my cat and kept her company, making sure sh stayed happy. When I got back from my trip, my flat was absolutely spotless! Yumna did an amazing job watching my cat and keeping my apartment tidy. She is reliable, compassionate and communicative. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a pet-sitter!" (Kelly R.)

"Yumna is a great sitter and a true 'Cat Whisperer'. My cat William is over 10 years old and very set in his ways. He would usually be suspicious of anyone trying to pet him and would run away and hide but from the first moment Yumna came into the house and reached out her hand towards him - he approached her and rubbed against her legs! I could not believe it, it seemed like a magic spell. We left him under her care when we went abroad and every day she would send us lovely pics and updates and we knew he was safe, well looked after and happy. I would recommend Yumna wholeheartedly." (Magdalena D.)

"Yumna came to look after Coco our beloved cat for us for a couple of weeks in 2019. We were going on a long haul holiday so felt quite anxious about leaving the cat for so long. Especially as we had lots of renovations work going on in the house at the time which made Coco the cat very nervous. However, Yumna was fantastic with Coco. She was just what Coco needed whilst we were away for so long. My Dad even popped into the house to participate in the renovation work. He was there when Yumna arrived and said Coco was delighted to see her and very relaxed with her! Yumna is super efficient, reliable and really loved by Coco. I cannot recommend her highly enough." (Jennifer, Mark and Coco the Cat E17)

Yumna took care of our cat Cleo really well. Cleo was happy and well taken cared of when we returned. Would highly recommend Yumna!
