About Alberto

Hi there! I'm Alberto.

I absolutely adore animals, but cats are my favorite by far. For over two years, I’ve been caring for felines in London, and it has been an incredible journey. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many different types of lovely cats and spending quality time with each of them. Plus, i have insurance and I am DBS checked, ensuring peace of mind for you and your furry friend.

How it all began...

I moved to London about nine years ago. Unfortunately, I couldn’t bring my beloved cat, Ibiza, with me, so she stayed with my mom. I miss her dearly, and since my landlord doesn’t allow pets, I decided to channel my love for cats into pet sitting. This way, I get to meet wonderful cats and spend quality time with them.

Growing up, I was surrounded by cats and other animals. I’ve always enjoyed playing with them, petting them, and even just observing their unique personalities, even when they’re a bit moody. My experience isn’t limited to cats; I’ve also cared for dogs, rodents, fish, turtles, and agapornis. However, cats are my true passion.

In my hometown, there are many stray cats, and I often rescued them, finding them loving families. This experience has given me a deep understanding and empathy for our feline friends. I also have some experience administering medication, so I can handle most of your cat’s needs.

Why choose me?

  • I offer visits of at least one hour, ensuring your cat receives plenty of attention and care.
  • I am flexible with overnight stays or two visits a day.
  • I have a motorbike, so I can travel within a reasonable distance, and I’m open to going farther for an additional fee.
  • Unfortunately, I can’t host pets at my home, but I can accommodate small animals like fish, hamsters, or tortoises that don’t need to leave their containers.
  • I genuinely enjoy the company of cats and guarantee your feline friend will have a fantastic time with me. I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

    Alberto looked after our two kittens over Christmas and New Year. His communication was great and he sent many videos every visit.

    He cleaned and changed the litter regularly - he even purchased more litter when we ran out!

    He was so thoughtful and seemed to genuinely enjoy looking after the kittens.

    I would recommend Alberto to all friends and family.

    10/10!

    Alberto was so polite, accommodating and loving towards our cats. We've had a number of cat sitters over the years but Alberto is by far the best and also you can tell he clearly cares about them. He knew how to act differently around each of our cats. One is very sociable and wants to play, Alberto played a lot with her. One is very scared and needs time to trust someone. Alberto kept a safe distance for her, he did not try to force a connection or any physical contact and let her just get used to him. I have never been so calm about leaving my cats in someone elses care until we hired Alberto. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone and we will definitely be booking him again for any of our cat sitting needs!
