We cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional cat-sitting services provided by Juliette. From the moment we met her, it was clear that she had a genuine love and understanding for cats. Juliette goes above and beyond the typical duties of a cat sitter. Not only did she ensure our cats Silky and Sace's basic needs were met, but she also took the time to engage in play, provide extra cuddles, and send us adorable photo updates. It was evident that our furballs not only felt well cared for but genuinely enjoyed Juliette and her kids company who loved brushing the cats. Her attention to detail is commendable. She followed all feeding instructions, maintained a clean litter box, and even went the extra mile by bringing in my parcel. It's the little touches like these that set Juliette apart. What sets Juliette apart is her communication skills. She kept me informed daily with detailed updates, assuring me that everything was going smoothly. Knowing that our cats were in such capable and caring hands allowed us to fully enjoy our time away. We wholeheartedly recommend Juliette to anyone in need of a cat sitter. She is not just a caretaker; she is a true cat enthusiast who treats your feline friend as if they were her own. I can't thank Juliette enough for the peace of mind she provided, and we will undoubtedly be reaching out to her for all my future cat-sitting needs. Five out of five purrs!

Absolutely recommended. Mayu recently looked after two of my wife and I's cats whilst we were overseas for over a week. This was made more complicated due to the fact that the cats were not yet friendly with each other (so they need to be kept separate), whilst still having their own time to roam around the house. More-so, one cat is on medication, whilst the other is very shy and sensitive. Mayu was proactive from the beginning about learning about the cats, their routines, their needs, and our needs as owners. She stopped in for a visit prior to the booking in order to meet the cats, review all of the details, and clarify any remaining questions. Whilst we were away, she provided daily updates on the health and mood of the cats, as well as fantastic photos of them (one of which is now my lock screen photo). She kept the litter boxes clean, fed the cats on a consistent schedule, refilled the water, provided medication, played with the cats, groomed them when possible, and made sure to tidy up after herself. Basically everything you'd want and expect in a cat sitter. Incredibly, the shy cat came out of her shell, and Mayu was able to give her chin scratches for the final few days. This was a brilliant update to see, as this cat usually takes much longer to feel comfortable with new people, and proves the ability for Mayu to earn trust from cats. We came back to both of our cats being in good health and happy to see us. We'll definitely be booking Mayu in the future.
