About me - I have lived with and been surrounded by cats and dogs all my life including fish and rabbits when I was a child! I am an avid animal lover and currently have 2 rescue dogs of my own.
This year is the first year without a cat though, my gorgeous black cat Delphi sadly passed away last year at the ripe old age of 17, oh how we miss her.
After we lost Delphi I decided to foster cats and helped the charity Guardian Angels animal support. This was so rewarding but sadly had to stop due to my Collie/shepherd cross developing a tumour on her heart and so not wanting her to become at all stressed with new cats coming and going I decided to stop fostering for the time being and set up a cat sitting agency to get my cat fix. Et voila The Great Catsby pet sitting service!
I am a Montessori teacher by trade and currently teach in a Montessori pre-school as a Special needs teacher a few hours a week, I also treat dogs with Canine Bowen Technique as and when asked.
I have plenty of spare time to look after cats during the day and am very flexible, I feel this could be my purrfect job!

Two home visits a day 30 GBP a day. All Bank Holidays will be charge at 30% more.
I would recommend a visit once or twice a day for your cat over a cattery option as it is far less stressful for the cat staying in their home environment. I do not book a client wishing a cat visit every other day as I feel that it is important for them to have some human contact every day, and is also a safer option for your cat too.
Look forward to hearing from you
