About Jane

Very experienced kitty sitter and lover, and I've got my regulars but I'll update my diary a lot so you can see where I am free:) I am happy to sit all year round, and happy to make deals for stays over a week. My love affair with cats started when I was a toddler, and all through childhood we had cats and dogs. As I grew, my knowledge grew, to the extent that many now call me a pet Mary Poppins! I've often stepped in when owners have to go away, or there's tough times, I ended up on several months of long sits during covid for 2 home alone fur babies! My last pet, Maude, was a short haired tortie-tabby kitty with heaps of personality, and was a stray who adopted us. I work from home mainly, and I started sitting cats and their homes for friends and friends of friends over 13 years ago. I'm now a screenwriter and film maker in my career, and a cat is the purr-fect companion for us writers, while we create our stories.

Cats know this and love curling up next to us while work, which is a warm and friendly arrangement all round. And of course, doggie pals always love that too! I would have my own pets of course, (2 or 3!) but I now live with my sister, and because she is allergic to pet dander, and sings Opera for a living, we are pet-less. However, I will get one again when I get my own place again.

Jane recently looked after our four cats whilst we were on holiday for a week. This is the first time we’ve had to use a cat sitter and I’m grateful to have had someone experienced and clearly a cat lover to look after our felines. The day before we were due to fly out, one of our cats started developing a weepy eye but Jane put us at ease by taking good care of him while we were away.

All in all, we are grateful to Jane for allowing us to have a restful holiday and feel reassured that our cats were in her excellent care.

I would recommend Jane if you need a long stay cat and house sitter.

I started 24/7 sitting cats and homes for friends about 13 years ago, but I grew up with cats, so they think I'm one of them! Our last cat Maude, (Mau-delicious), was a stray, with a big personality, who adopted us:). I am cat less now sadly as I live with my sister who’s very allergic and asthmatic and sings for a living. I meanwhile work from base as a screenwriter. I can take from a few nights, to a month or even longer cat/house sits, (all negotiable and long sits come with discounts) Cats often curl up next to me while I work for a snooze, and this keeps them from missing you, as cats are friendly and company loving. And of course, they have the wisdom of the ages in their lovely eyes. I provide is a lot more company and expert care for your kitty than just visits ever could. Cats are territorial, and that means they show their affection by 'owning' you and your family and can become really stressed and lonely when their usual 'family' aren't there. So just see me as your cat surrogate, (I have been called a cat Mary Poppins:) What I offer: is to be your loving cat carer and 24/7 house sitter anywhere from zones 1 to zone 3 borders in London. I'm experienced with dizzy kittens and sweet old kitties who just want to curl up! I'm also an experienced Bengals, Burmese and Siamese sitter. I am good with shy ones, complex ones, nervy ones and kitties that need a lot of hugs! I 'get' cat psychology and behavior more than human for sure:) I can help with medical care, and can inject diabetic cats, and take a cat's diet needs/litter tray/in/out routines completely in my stride Also, I am happy to discuss a more, 'in' house rate if you want full time care, which can be good for poorly kitties. I can provide references; I don't drive or smoke. I water plants, take in mail and deliveries (By arrangement). My lifestyle is similar to a cats, and my outings are often erratically spaced through the week, so burglars will find it hard to 'case' your property too!
