Absolutely amazing catsitter!
We decided to get a catsitter to come to our home after a few bad experiences we had with a cattery/ pet boarding. Poliana was very responsive from start to end and took great care of our cats while we were away. One of our cats is very shy but he was very relaxed and comfortable around Poliana, which is certainly a good sign! We loved receiving the daily updates, pictures and videos and that definitely helped to put us at ease enjoying our holidays. Will definitely hire her again!
Sara is a super qualified cat nanny!:D My scaredy -pants-cat having seen her for the first time started rubbing against her legs and showed lots of trust from the first second. :D I think Sara really knows how to deal with and take care of cats. She is also very punctual, responsible, friendly and sweet. Thank you, dear Sara! We'll be addressing you more times! Natasha & Tiago

Alba is absolutely fantastic! She spent time playing with the cats and brought some toys along for them, from the videos we got whilst we were away we could tell they loved her! Even my shyest cat was a fan :) Definitely recommend, and will definitely be booking again! Two very happy cats on arrival home, what more could you ask for!

I'm absolutely thrilled to have found Bel. Except, I think my cat prefers her now. This was her second time looking after my kitty and she did a wonderful job again. I came home to a very happy kitty. Bel sends updates from every visit and sends the most wonderful time lapse videos of her interacting with my kitty. It's so reassuring and great to see my cat so well entertained and cared for. I couldn't recommend Bel more highly! She is a cat lover through and through!

Uliana was brilliant from start to finish. She was a natural with Otis, gave him lots of affection, and did everything we asked of her and more on each visit. Otis has gained a great new friend, and we'll definitely be asking her to come and take care of him in the future when we're away

Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs
What is cat sitting?
A trusted cat lover will come and care for your cat every day, either with drop-in visits or by cat sitting overnight. A cat sitting visit includes feeding your cat, changing the water, cleaning the litter tray, playtime and cuddles. A cat sitter will also send you regular updates about your pet.
Cat in a Flat’s 5-star sitters offer a personalised cat sitting service that is suitable for cats of all ages and health. Cat sitting is a great alternative to a cattery.
Is cat sitting or boarding in a cattery the right option for my cat?
Cats don’t like change, they don’t like to travel, and they don’t like sharing space with unfamiliar cats. Cat sitters will pay individual, tailored and loving attention to your cat or cats based on their preferences. Therefore, cat sitting is the best solution for most cats, and it’s also more convenient and less expensive for cat owners.

Will my cat forget me after two weeks away?
Cats can remember their owners for years after being separated from them. So rest assured when you return, your cat will remember who you are and your shared bond. To remind your cat of you while you’re away, leave them something with your smell, such as a piece of clothing. The scent will be reassuring to your cat, especially if they suffer from separation anxiety.
