Welcome to

I'm Kylie, a mobile cat sitter, fully insured and qualified in Feline/Canine First Aid and Animal Training, mainly covering central Norwich, NR1-NR8 (please contact me for more information on surrounding postcodes as I can cover further too!)

Looking for a top rate alternative to catteries? Take the worry away from booking holidays, working shifts and being away from home - keep your animals in their own environment and come home to a stress free pet! Not only is it better for your pets, but you no longer have to worry about transporting your animals to the cattery and back. With me, all you have to do is be available for me to come and say hi beforehand!

As well as visiting your pets as and when you need, I also provide the essential service of making your house look lived in whilst you are away, a great way of reassuring yourself that your home is safe and secure. See list below for all services.

I set up the service at the end of 2015 alongside my (then) full time job to help other cat owners like myself, who worry about leaving their fur babies in the hands of someone who may not see the harm in accidentally letting out my indoor cat, or leaving the window open, feeding her too much, not filling up her pint glass of water, or stressing her out so much that she picks up bad habits again - like weeing on the sofa or over her toys (which took years to get mine out of!). Within 6 months I was able to leave my job of 11 years to pursue The Cat Lady as a full time profession and I have never looked back! Don't let the moniker fool you - I have experience with all types of pets and am looking forward to looking after your cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, chickens - whoever you need me to!

Qualified in Pet Business, Feline and Canine First Aid and insured through Pet Plan Sanctuary - I have owned all kinds of animals from cats, dogs, birds, fish and reptiles, and have experience with horses and small furries as well. No job is too small and all pets are given the care and attention that they need – requirements which are recorded on a meet and greet near to your booking.

I am available for your animal care needs including daily and twice daily visits, and pet taxi (depending on availability) - whether it be one off visits or regular bookings. I cover NR1-NR7 free of surplus petrol charges, but I am fully mobile and travel the surrounding areas for a little extra - don't hesitate to contact to see how I can help you!

All bookings include a free meet and greet key collection, and a chance to be in my Secure Key Holding Scheme (see Pricing page), so please allow time for this when booking, although I am flexible and can usually tailor to short notice bookings as well as in advance. I will always find a time that is suitable for us both. Please Like my Facebook page for regular updates.

I also work 7 days a week for all services!
