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

What to expect from an in-home cat sitting service
Daily cat sitting services can start from £/€ 8 per visit and should last 20-40 minutes. This allows your kitty to get fresh food & water, a cleared litter tray, lots of affection and a chance to play. You can also look forward to reassuring daily updates and photographs of your cat while you’re away.
Avoid the stress of a cattery and return home to happy, relaxed kitties enjoying the comforts of their own home.
How to become a cat sitter?
To become a cat sitter with Cat in a Flat, simply register and submit your profile. We will take you through a step by step process and let you know if you have been approved.
The amount you can earn as a cat carer depends on the level of service you provide. Most cat sitters charge 10 - 15 £/€ for a once-daily home visit or 12 - 25 £/€ to drop in twice a day. Cat sitters usually charge 15 - 50 £/€ for overnight cat sitting stays. You can look after more than one household of cats at a time if they only need daily home visits. Many cat sitters also charge a little extra for additional services such as watering the plants. More expensive cat sitters tend to be the ones with more experience and who can administer medication.
