Hi Amber,

I've moved your post to this existing thread on cat sitters. I have to echo James' previous comments though. It does sound like you might be putting an ad out for a burglar :blink:.

I suggest you contact Cat Calls or Sitting Kitty (details above), both of which provide an excellent service to local cat owners and our beloved furry friends. Cat Calls charges 13.50 a visit, so substantially higher than your request. However, they are insured and Jane and co know what to do if your cat gets sick. I do think that it's about more than just getting someone to open a tin of cat food for kitty. As I've said before on here, it's about someone reliable who would be able to cope in an emergency. Jane has looked after my (now deceased) paraplegic cat and rescued live birds from my house before :).

Hi there, putting out another call for house/ pet sitter.
contacted animals at home and sounds good for say a night or two away with the dog being boarded but works out to quite a lot for a long weekend as would require dog being boarded and the cats being visited at home.

so anyone know someone local to west norwood they have used for house/pet sitting and can recommend? Looking to go away for long weekend either early June or end of June.

many thanks

Again, Sitting Kitty
They looked after my little Freckle for ten years.

I think filmbuffy needs someone to come and walk/feed the dog too and neither Sitting Kitty nor Cat Calls offer this service as far as I know. I think you may need to look for a dog sitter who'd be happy to feed the cats at the same time.
