About Carla

Hi! My name is Carla and I am 34. I am always involved in some volunteer work with animals and worked in a dog shelter in Brazil for 3 years. I would feed, medicate, clean the area, and walk the dogs on a weekly basis. I used to have a dog, from the age of 2 until I was 18. After that, I have had 3 cats and consequently have hired cat sitters myself many times.

I am quite demanding with them so it makes sense to offer a high standard service too. I spend at least one hour a day with the cat, unless we agree he or she should be fine with something different. I send a short report, photos and pictures every visit, and then you can be sure the cat is doing fine and also that I was there for the period of time agreed.

I have been cat sitting in North London for nearly two years now and almost all of my clients have become regulars. Cats (and their owners) seem to be very happy with my work! You can see some of them in the pictures.

This is a part-time job for me (surely the best I could have asked for!) so I take it very seriously.

If you are looking for a responsible, trustworthy, clean and loving pet sitter, you have just found the right person!

As I have around 10 regular clients who book me from time to time,

I advise new potential clients to contact me at least one month in advance to avoid disappointment. Thanks :)

We were so lucky to have Carla take care of Monty in our absence.

Regular daily updates, photos and movies of our cat being fed and groomed and loved.

I am sure my cat is already looking forward to us going on holiday again and to have Carla back taking care of him!

I cannot recommend Carla highly enough. From her flexibility in meeting our needs at short notice, to the effort she put in to check in on Petunia on more than one occasion when my return flight was delayed but most of all the love and care she showed Petunia. She clearly loves animals and treated Petunia as if she was her own taking time to sit with her, snuggle with her and lots of play time too from the videos and photos. It was obvious Petunia and Carla were having a great time together and my little cat is clearly very fond of her. Carla even managed to get her to stay still for a brush which is a first !!!!!! I cannot think of anyone I would trust more with Petunia which considering we have only known Carla a few days should tell you everything you need to know about her.
