About Gemma

 Hello cat owner!  

I know how difficult it can be finding someone to take care of your cat while you're away. If, like me, you have a timid kitty or your cat is older, or on medication I'm sure you'll want to avoid a cattery where they are in an unfamiliar environment. That's why cat sitting is so great, I'll visit your cat in their own home where they are most comfortable while you're away.  

About me 

I've owned and loved cats all my life and have often looked after my friends and family's cats when they're away. Outside of cat sitting, I work in HR for a local technology company. 

I live with Cilla who I adopted from Battersea in 2015; she's a nervous girl who is on a strict measured diet due to easily gaining weight. My previous cat, Rosie, lived to 21 years old and needed daily topical thyroid medication in her later years.  

You can rest assured that I am good with nervous, shy and older cats as well as the bold, brave and feisty ones. I appreciate each cat has their own preferences and I'll take your guidance on their likes and dislikes. 

What I offer 

I offer everything your cat needs while you're away - clean bowls and litter trays, fresh food and water, medication, playtime, strokes and cuddles (if they like it)! 

If you'd like me to, I'll also open and close curtains, switch lights on and off and put your bins out on collection day. I'll also keep you updated with photos of your cat via WhatsApp. 

Visits are a minimum of 30 minutes. However, if your cat enjoys more company, longer visits can be discussed. 

To ensure I give my cat clients the best attention, I mainly cover Egham and the Runnymede side of Staines. However, if you're beyond these areas and are interested in booking me, please get in touch to discuss.

The process 

If you're interested in booking me to look after your cat, I offer a free meet and greet beforehand to get your cat's approval, familiarise myself with your cat's routines and discuss any specific requirements such as medication, feeding preferences and where the cat supplies and cleaning products are kept.  

Once the booking is confirmed, there will be some information forms to complete prior to the cat sitting starting so that I have all the information I need while you're away. 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. I look
forward to hearing from you soon! 😺
