We stay with your cat for the time you require, If however, your cat has access to a catflap and keen to get on with adventures there would be little requirement for a 30 min visit.
But if kitty stays indoors and enjoys company we stay for the time (sometimes a bit longer) we always give you daily pictures and updates.

This is something we strongly recommend against. It’s not in our duty of care and can have serious consequences for your cat. Your cat needs social interaction and a lot can happen in 24 hours. Doing a visit even once in 24 hours allows us to check on the health and wellbeing of your cat. Which is of uttermost importance.

We are an independent cat sitter who put the needs of your cat first. We want to know your cats’ quirky habits and behaviours as all cats are unique no two are the same.

We’ll provide chin rubs, head scratches or back scratches when demanded. We also work with some other cat sitters in the area and help each other out as it’s our integrity and values, we are here for your pets.
