About Kirsty

Hello fellow animal lovers!

My name is Kirsty and I currently live in Hove with my partner Mike. Sadly we recently said goodbye to our almost 18 year old cat, Oscar.

I have always loved animals and used to manage a cattery. I now do casual cat sitting and dog walking, either day visits or staying over and house sitting as well. I have experience caring for a range of cats, from ages of just a few months old to 21. I am also trained to give oral medication and insulin for diabetic cats. Many cats I have cared for in the past have special needs which I am confident in caring for. I can also do basic grooming and nail clipping.

Although cats are my usual, I am also confident in caring for small animals and dogs as well.

It is extremely important to me that your pet is relaxed and happy while in my care. For this reason, I will usually spend 1-2 hours with your pet, per visit or several hours per day if staying at the property . It is important that your pet gets not only fed, toileted and checked, but also that they get cuddles, exercise and play if they wish. I am also happy to send photo and video updates while you are away.

Any queries please contact me. I'd love to hear from you and make some new furry friends!

Kirsty did a great job with my cat, Midnight, who is very shy of people. After a couple of days he really warmed to Kirsty and was sitting on her lap for strokes that I'm sure he loved. I definitely recommend Kirsty as a great pet sitter.

Kirsty looked after our cat really well. Communications were great and we returned home to a calm and content cat.
