About Espen

I have loved cats as long as I can remember, having lived with five different cats over the course of my life. I have experience with everything from healthy kittens to older cats with medical needs. I also have extensive experience with rescue cats, having lived with two in the past and with one currently.

Over the last two years I have looked after cats for friends and neighbours, always receiving positive feedback. Multiple people have suggested that I offer to cat-sit on a more formal basis, which led to me discovering this website.

I understand personally how going away can be stressful for pet owners, and that you don't want to be worrying about their wellbeing and safety while you try to relax/work. I hope to help put your mind at ease while getting the added bonus of getting to meet more cats!

I am happy to:

  • feed your cat(s) up to two times a day, while keeping the food area tidy/clean
  • empty/clean/refill any litter trays
  • administer oral medication if required
  • send daily photo updates
  • spend time playing with your cat(s) or simply keeping them company
  • Each cat I've met has had a distinct personality, so I am willing to be flexible and follow any other specific requirements you may have.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to house cats in my own home, as the cat I currently live with gets stressed out by other cats.

    Furthermore, as I do not have a car, it is only feasible for me to look after cats that are located within a reasonable cycling distance from where I live (Southbank, near the Knavesmire). Please include a rough idea of where you live when sending a booking request.

    Espen sent multiple photos each day and a little update on how the cats were doing. There were no issues while I was away but I feel Espen would have taken care of my cats if there had been. I will ask Espen to cat sit again.

    Espen looked after my 3 cats while I was out of the country. I couldn’t be happier with the service he gave, he was in regular contact with me and sent me photos of them each time he visited. Espen fed the cats but also spent time with them which was lovely of him. Would highly recommend Espen if you need help looking after your pets!
