About Sandra

I have limited availability until October, however please contact me with any enquires as my availability will depend on your location.

I have lived in sholing for 30 years, I’m known locally as ‘the cat lady’! I have owned cats for 40 years and currently 7 own me, Loras & Renly (names from Game of Thrones), 2 ginger part bengal brothers and Milo the tabby and white who was a stray. 4 have come from Spain, Tintin with 3 legs and 1 ear, Billie a tabby point and Augustus (Gus) an apricot point Siamese and Miami who is a Siamese cross snowshoe. My cats are my world and yes they are spoilt, I can’t go in a pet store without coming out with a new toy or treats. I always wanted to own a cattery, but now think being a sitter is even better, I’m sure your cats would agree, home is always best.

I just adore cats and have a natural affinity with them, I love to make new feline friends, discover their personalities and individual traits. Rest assured your cats will be loved, fed and pampered and hopefully not miss you too much. I have volunteered for the Blue Cross as a cat socialiser, fostered for cats protection and currently help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome siamese cats. I have a vast amount of experience with most breeds. I have worked with feral, fear aggressive and traumatised cats to help them overcome their issues and ‘be the cat they were always meant to be’, seeing them happy in a new home is the most rewarding feeling.

I am an expert pill giver, no cat has ever got the better of me, yet. Proficient and confident with injections (I give daily injections to one of my own) and topical medications. I have a level 3 veterinary support assistant diploma, so am trained in animal first aid and CPR, and a diploma in cat behaviour & psychology, I’m always happy to to offer advice with any behavioural issues. Currently I’m studying cat anxiety and stress.

I work part time as an administrator for the NHS, and a receptionist in a vets, when I’m not at work or being a cat slave I’m usually to be found on the sofa with at least 4 cats demanding attention. I need to be an octopus some days! My hobbies include reading, cooking, cross stitch and diamond art, my cats are very helpful with the last 2 (not)!

Your cat will be pampered and the visits tailor made around your cats needs, you will receive daily updates with photos and videos. Visits are at least 30 minutes long, but happy to stay longer if your cat is enjoying my company.
