About Antonio

Hello, I’m Antonio, a professional software engineer living in the heart of Reading.

Since 2019, I’ve been offering cat sitting services throughout the town, earning the trust of numerous pet owners. With over 30 years of experience, I’ve shared my entire life with cats and consider them my feline companions.

Every day, I spend hours playing with my feline housemate, and it’s truly the highlight of my day. Throughout my life, I’ve had the pleasure of cohabiting and caring for a diverse range of cats, both males and females, each with their unique personalities and needs. My last beloved cat lived a remarkable 23 years (equivalent to 109 human years).

Recently, I adopted a female cat from a shelter, and within two weeks, she transformed from a nervous and suspicious soul into the most affectionate and cuddly companion I’ve ever had!

With my extensive experience, I’ve developed the ability to quickly establish trust with cats, and develop a keen understanding of their emotions and behaviors.

Working from home allows me to be available throughout the day, including mornings, afternoons, and evenings.

If your cat requires medication or has specific needs, rest assured that I am capable and adaptable. Additionally, I’m more than happy to take care of your plants during my visits.

As a former photographer during my university days, I may even capture some stunning pictures of your beloved pet to share with you!

If you have any inquiries or would like to discuss your cat’s requirements, please feel free to send me a message. However, please note that I currently do not have experience with dogs and, therefore, am unable to accommodate them.

Thank you for considering my services, and I look forward to meeting your adorable furry housemates.

As always, Antonio is absolutely amazing with our girls. We feel so relaxed knowing they're being looked after to such amazing standards and he always gives us lovely updates and photos throughout. He's so conscious of different personalities and is making steady progress with our nervous cat. Thanks as always!
