What do you do?

I’m Kat and I’m a cat sitter based near Bradford in West Yorkshire.  I provide a tailored cat sitting service for people when they’re on holiday.

Using my cat sitting service means that when you’re away, your cats stay comfortable, safe and sound in their own home.  You and your cats can all avoid the potential upset of a trip to a cattery.

Kat’s Cat Sitting services are a bit like baby sitting.  I will come to your home when you’re away and feed, stroke and fuss your cats and kittens.

If you’re away just for the odd night, or on a work trips, or just back late, I can still help.  I can tailor my services to ensure your cats are comfy, fed and happy in their own home.

Who is Kat?

I’m a cat lover from Bradford.  I live with a charming, adopted rescue cat called Jasmine, who’s nine, and am a very proud friend of the frisky Leo, who’s seven.  I provide a cat sitting service so your cats and kittens can stay in their own home when you’re on holiday.

I’ve worked in catteries and kennels in the past, and I’m a huge animal fan.  I was born and raised in and around West Yorkshire, so there’s a good chance I’ll know your area already.  I work for a national charity based in Saltaire, and I’m also a part-time student with The Open University.

I’ve been providing cat sitting services since 2012.  I started out as a cat sitter through recommendations from friends to their friends.  Since then, my reputation has grown and I have some satisfied clients, as well as some very satisfied cats and kittens.

You can read more reviews from happy cats and their families on my Facebook page.

Kat’s passion and love for working with cats is very clear and she goes above and beyond to ensure owners and cats are completely satisfied with the service. We will definitely be using Kat again!!

Beth, Hermit Hole

We have a very grumpy cat who does not like change or new people yet Kat had him eating our of the palm of her hand!  I would thoroughly recommend her services and would certainly use her again…

Rebecca, Keighley

I cannot recommend Kat highly enough! As well as being completely professional, she is warm and instils so much confidence – you know your cats will be well looked after in their home. Our boys were so relaxed when we got home and we could tell they’d had lots of fuss.

Kate, Thornton

Kat is very reliable and provides an excellent service, not only feeding our cat, Bobby, but lavishing him with attention and cuddles too. We hate leaving our little boy, but we know he is always in very trustworthy and capable hands with Kat.

Amy, Lower Wortley

Kat looked after my 2 cats for 2 weeks. One of our cats is diabetic so she managed injections, got to know their routines and spent time with them every day. She was even kind enough to leave us a pint of milk for our return from holiday! I’ve already booked her again.

Michelle, Low Moor

How much do you charge?

The short answer is from £8 for a daily visit of up to 30-minutes with Kat’s Cat Sitting service.

The longer answer is that if you and your cats are more than three miles from where I live near Bradford or where I work in Saltaire, I’ll ask for a bit more to cover the petrol and travel time.  And if you need more than one visit a day, we can agree a daily rate tailored just for your cat.

Also, from £8 is the price for a house with just a couple of cats.  If you have lots and lots of cats and kittens, that’s no problem!  I’ll give them all individual strokes and fusses, but it will take a bit longer, and cost a bit more.

Wherever you live, we can tailor your daily visit to exactly what your cats and kittens need, whether it’s just some reassuring company or lots of playtime and cuddles.

Questions & answers

Are you accepting bookings?

In light of the upcoming new Covid-19 restrictions due to come into effect on 5th November, I’m unable to accept bookings from either existing or new clients.

This is likely to be the case until at least 2nd December.  Until it’s 100% clear that it’s safe for us to travel for non-essential reasons or to go into each other’s homes outside our own support bubbles, I can’t commit to any kitty, cat or client requests for meetings or bookings.

A few people have said “we won’t grass you up” or “no-one needs to know”, but, katscatsitting.co.uk won’t be making any exceptions to the new lockdown rules.  It’s really important that you, your cats, anyone without cats, EVERYONE, can stay safe and protected from this terrible situation. Please don’t be cross!  It’s with a very heavy heart that I’m unable to work with you before at least 2nd December 2020.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Ordinarily, I always recommend getting in touch as soon as possible as peak seasons do book up quickly.  That said, I will always do my best to accommodate your requirements, and frequently take on short notice bookings.  The best way to find out more is by using the form below.

Who will come into my home?

Me, and only me. If you trust me to come into your home to provide a cat sitting service, then you are trusting me with your security, and I take that very seriously.

Do you have any insurance?

Hopefully nothing will go wrong, but to cover every eventuality, I am fully insured as a pet sitter with Pet Plan Sanctuary.

This means I have public liability, property damage, loss or theft of keys, and general care, custody and control of animals insurance.  I can bring along my documents when we meet.

Are you DBS checked?

I am. I have a basic disclosure and I can share this with you too so you have extra peace of mind.

Can you give my cat their medication?

I have experience administering injections for diabetic cats, and am confident providing oral medication.  If your cat has any special requirements, please use the form to get in touch and we can discuss everything your cat needs.

How do I arrange a booking?

We can arrange a visit (with no charge) to talk what you and your cat (or cats) need.  By making sure the service is tailored to your cat’s requirements, you’ll feel comfortable your cats and kittens will be happy in their own home when you’re away.

How do I pay you for cat sitting?

You can pay by PayPal, by bank transfer or in cash.  You’ll need to pay a 50% deposit to confirm your booking, with the remainder due when your keys are handed back.

Could you water my plants?

Of course! If you have any little chores like this, I can happily help out with those too whilst you’re away.

What if I need to cancel my booking?

I have a moderate cancellation policy, so if your plans change just let me know as soon as you can.

What do you do with my personal data?
