There are no hidden costs and the charges below cover my time, travel/car costs and initial meeting/key collection.
Where most catteries charge per animal, my charge is per household.
I live in central Norwich (St Benedicts Street), so cover the following postcodes for once or twice daily visits. I work 7 days a week, rarely have unavailable days, and work whatever the weather , so keeping to these areas means that I can get to your cat whatever the obstacle!
NR1 - £8 per visit
NR2 - £7.50 per visit
NR3 - £7.50-£8 per visit
NR6 7 (Catton) - £8 per visit
NR7 - £8 per visit
Surrounding postcodes/areas will be considered depending on my availability or the season so please send me a message to see if I can help you!
Please note that I can also look after rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and other 'pocket pets', but unfortunately I no longer offer dog sitting, overnight stays and I cannot board in my own home.
Visit time is based on your pets' personality, and can vary at busier times, but a visit will usually not exceed 45 minutes. For most of my catchment areas I offer once or twice daily visits - AM & PM for twice daily, and flexible times for the once daily. If you require a once daily visit please let me know if your have a time slot preference (AM/LUNCH/PM). There is a list of the tasks I do on the homepage of this website, as well as plenty of play and fuss!
Morning visits are generally between 730-1130am, Lunch visits 12-3pm and Teatime visits between 330-8pm. These times may vary slightly either side depending on the time of year. For those on specific timed medications (e.g. Insulin injections) I will try to to accommodate timings to those they are used to.
I offer a text service so that you have peace of mind about your fur babies when you're away. I will always specify with you on meeting when you would like texts, but generally if I am visiting once daily I will send updates every few days depending on the length of the booking, or if twice daily usually once in the evenings. If you have opted into text updates I will also usually text on first and last visit to let you know I have got in/all is ok for your return. If you prefer the 'no news is good news' approach, you can opt for updates only if there is an emergency! If you would like photos sent to you, I can use Whatsapp Messenger, Facebook or Email.
All bookings include a free meet and greet key collection. Any additional meetings for the booking may require a charge to cover fuel costs if I am not passing your area at the time (e.g if you would like to meet in advance of key collection). If we have already met, I might ask for keys to be dropped to my house 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.
Please mention if you would like me to hold a key when booking, and have a spare key availiable on the date we arrange. You will be required to sign a key holding form which I will either have on our meeting or leave out with an SAE for posting back to me.
