PRICING

There are no hidden costs* and my charges below cover both my time, fuel and key collection. These charges cover NR1-NR9 - If you are outside these areas please let me know as it depends on my availability whether I cover outside postcodes, and I also add on a little more for the *added mileage (20p per mile).
Where most catteries charge per animal, I only charge per household, which is a base charge per visit unless there are special requirements such as medication administration or if you are out of my catchment area (please mention this when you contact me!).

Cat Sitting

NR1-NR7 £8 per visit
NR8-NR9 £9 a visit
NR10+ Please enquire as it depends on my availability.

Visit time is generally between 20-40 minutes but I always judge this on the cat's personality.

Morning visits are generally between 730-11am, Lunch visits 12-3 and Teatime visits between 430-8. I will try to accommodate specific times but cannot always promise this in peak times

I offer a text service where I update and send you photos of your fur babies when you're away. Generally, I don't text on each visit, but will always specify with you on meeting whether you would like a daily, twice weekly or tri-weekly update, or if you prefer the 'no news is good news' approach, you can opt for updates only if there is an emergency.

All bookings include a free meet and greet key collection. If we have already met, I might ask for keys to be dropped to my house or left in a safe place depending on my availability, or I am familiar with many key-code boxes too and am happy to have keys left in these. I generally do meetings on selected weekday evenings after 6pm, and Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes, but will always give you as many options as possible when booking.

Small Animal/Bird Sitting

£8 per visit NR1-NR7.

£9 per visit NR8-NR9.

SECURE KEY HOLDING SCHEME

 

    I am constantly thriving to provide the best of flexible pet care services to all my clients. Part of this is offering to securely hold a key for your property free of charge, to ensure that you can book at short notice and in peak times with no worry of unavailiability (this excludes any dates sent out in advance of my own holiday!). The keys I hold are all marked with a clear identity tag (with no address or surname!), in a securely locked location other than the dates you have booked in, and can be returned to you if needed at your request. Some benefits of this free-of-charge extra are as follows:

  • Flexibility for short notice requests, emergency visits and for those of you who go away alot throughout peak times where it may be hard for me to fit in key collections (April-August and December). This ensures that other than dates pre-arranged for my own holiday, you will pretty much always be guaranteed a pet sitter!
  • Avoids the need for you to be availiable for key collection at un-social times when you get home from work or days off in the run up to your booking
  • Ensures I still have a key after the last visit you have booked in incase of any delays or you decide to prolong your trip
  • There will be someone within city centre reach with a key to your property should you lock yourself out or for any other emergency
  • Please mention if you would like me to hold a key when booking, and have a spare key availiable on the date we arrange.

POLICIES/TERMS & CONDITIONS

 

  • Invoices for holiday bookings are preferably paid upfront before the booking commences via bank transfer (online, telephone or over the counter). However, I realise sometimes this is not possible, so in circumstances where you cannot pay before you leave - I ask that the invoice is settled by the last day of the month your booking starts in. Please note that any cancellations of dates when a booking has already started may incur a full charge.
  • I work all year round, including Christmas day which is a double charge. Please book as early as possible as I book up extremely early, and to make sure we have time to sort out a meeting that is good for you!
  • Please note that I am happy to get extra food/bedding/litter for your animals while you are away to be invoiced to you at the end of your booking. Where possible, all food, bedding and litter is to be supplied by the client before booking commences and left in the place arranged on key collection.
  • Unlike a cattery, I do not require your pets to be up to date with vaccinations, although it is good practice for them to be for the good of their health. I do however ask that your animals are up to date with flea and worm treatment before you go away whether they are indoor or outdoor animals. This protects your pets from unwanted visitors and in turn protects my other clients too.
