I am 48 years old and live with my husband in West Didsbury , Manchester.
We are the proud owners of 5 cats, Annie Hall, Oscar, Carter , Larry & Rudy . All 5 are rescue cats. I have previously worked as a volunteer "cat cuddler" and "kitten fosterer" with the RSPCA. This involved spending time with the rescue cats who are in need of re homing, playing with them, and providing a lap to sit on and enjoy cuddles! The kitten fostering involves bringing young homeless kittens into our home , sometimes they need hand rearing , sometimes just amusing and general socialising and care as they grow to an age where the RSPCA can rehome them.
I am offering a cat visiting service for when you are away working or on holiday. I firmly believe that cats feel more secure in their own environment. I can feed your cats, apply medication if needed, empty and clean litter trays, and play with them! I can also provide house keeping duties such as bringing in post, milk etc, water plants, opening and closing blinds and curtains. Areas covered are Trafford and South Manchester regions (Urmston, Flixton, Davyhulme, Stretford, Chorlton, Didsbury, West Didsbury, WhalleyRange & Withington).
Cat sitting based on the following rates
£10.00 for 1 x 30min standard rate visit / please discuss rates available for your particular area. Please also contact me to discuss Christmas & NY rates.
Whilst away I will keep you up to date with a daily email , whatsapp or text , this can include photos & videos of your kitties.
All visits would consist of feeding & watering, cleaning of litter trays, playing with your cat and making them feel loved while you're away. I will open and close curtains and bring in your post , water plants as per your directions which we will discuss in detail at a free no obligation visit to meet you and your cat(s).

I can not recommend Clare enough! I’m cabin crew so have had to recently leave my baby Cash for the first time and Clare was just amazing. Sending photos, videos and messages while I was away helping to deal with my first time separation anxiety She went above and beyond to make both me and Cash feel comfortable and reassured. I will definitely be using her services again and recommend to everyone!

Absolute fabulous service. Clare really does looks after your cats. She is sends you updates of your cats with pictures to let you know they are well. She says and cuddles your cat so they get the human contact they need when you are away. I recommend anyone who needs a pet service to use Clare.

Barry-john Saunders – 5 star*****
Clare goes above & beyond to provide an excellent service. I trust Claire 100% with the care of my cats and access to my house. We were worried about leaving our cats and did lots of research before choosing Clare and so glad we did. We would highly recommend using Clare, she sets the standard that all other cat sitters should follow.

Wonderful cat sitter and very communicative. I wouldn't have anyone else look after my cats!
Joyous Clare – 5 star*****
I have left my cat Bella, in the care of Clare a fair number of times
now and I have always felt very confident knowing that Bella will be
well looked after whilst I am away.
I particularly enjoy the fact
that Clare sends regular updates and photos of Bella to keep me
reassured of how well she is doing.
I would recommend Clare's service to anyone looking for a fantastic cat carer.
You can fully see how passionate and caring she is and totally loves cats.
Thanks again X
Simone Ridyard – 5 star*****Couldn't ask for a better cat-sitter. Clare genuinely cares about my
cats and keeps up excellent communication when I'm away. I use her
regularly as I travel a fair bit for work and it means (whilst I miss
them horribly!) I don't have to worry whilst I'm away. I have
recommended her to everyone I can think of...and my mother and
neighbours now use Clare too. Thanks so much Clare! Sx

Clare has been looking after my cat for the past couple of years and she is amazing. Not only does she really care about Tigger she also looks after your house. Anything you need if there’s a crisis or situation she is more than willing to help. She’s not just a cat sitter in my view. Honestly could not recommend highly enough. Your cat/s will be in safe hands.
Nick Berish– 5 star*****
Wouldn't not hesitate to recommend Clare. She loves cats and knows how
to look after them with great kindness and knowledgeability. She was
also very supportive when we unfortunately had to put our cat to sleep
earlier this year. When we get a new c Clare will be our first port of

Rachel Wrigley – 5 star*****
As soon as you meet Clare you realise that she is so so passionate about cats , looking after them and caring for them as if they were her own just comes naturally to her . Clare's cat sitting is more of a vocation than a business ! And that is why I would recommend her to anyone and everyone . We are repeat customers now as our tricky cat Milo has been so well looked after in her care . She provides a fantastic service , is great value for money and so efficient . Thanks Clare Xxx
Mandy Ward – 5 star*****
Thankyou, Clare, for the great job you did looking after Harley and Bob last weekend. You and Simon clearly are cat people to the core and it showed in the time you took to get to know the boys. We couldn't be happier with the service you provided, from the care you gave the lads, to sending us a daily update on how they were doing. It was lovely to come home to 2 chilled out mogs who were both clearly happy to have been able to stay home for the weekend. We are so happy to have found our cat-sitters and will be back in touch when its time for our next short break away.
