Our customers say

How does it work?
Each visit lasts up to 30 minutes (although you can book a double visit if required!). We will see to food and litter needs and are also able to administer medication. The focus of each visit is to give as much cuddles and playtime as possible. We will also post their photo to Twitter so that you can follow their adventures while you are away. Home security is paramount and we are happy to close curtains, attend to lights etc for your peace of mind.

Who will my sitter be?
We have a team of DBS-checked sitters working for us, many of whom are full-time. Bookings are allocated based on availability and location. Click to meet the team now!
