Petpals Hendon & Hampstead Cat Sitting – The Purrrrfect Alternative to Catteries!

Our Petpals Cat Sitting Service is the purrrrfect alternative to catteries! Most cats prefer to stay at home when you are away. They have their own bed, own surroundings, and regular human contact. What could be better?

Petpals Hendon & Hampstead is no regular cat sit company. Our local cat sitters in Hendon & Hampstead are expertly trained in feline first aid, fully insured, and DBS checked for extra peace of mind. As true cat lovers, we understand and respect the unique needs of your feline friends.

Before you go away, we’ll arrange a meet and greet to discuss all aspects of your cat’s requirements. We’ll understand their feeding schedule and usual routines, ensuring they receive the best possible care while you’re away. Our trusted cat carers can visit multiple times a day to ensure all of your cat’s needs are catered for, including playtime and cuddles.

We’ll send you regular photos and updates so you can see exactly what your cats have been getting up to! This provides cat owners with extra peace of mind, knowing their feline companions are happy and well cared for.

Our cat sitting service is ideal for nervous or elderly cats who need to stay in their own comfy space when their owner is absent. As a cat lover, you’ll appreciate how much your pet benefits from being in a familiar environment.

We’ll even keep the house in order and safe while you’re away. From tidying post away from the front door, emptying the litter tray and watering the plants, we give you the confidence to unwind and enjoy your time away.

Choose Petpals Hendon & Hampstead Cat Sitting Service for a dedicated, professional, and loving cat sitter. Contact us today to schedule a visit and give your cat the purrrrfect care they deserve!

Trust Petpals Pet Sitters to care for your pets while you are away from home. Our pet sitting service in Hendon & Hampstead offers drop-in visits, ensuring your house and pets are well looked after.

Cats and other small pets relax in their own home and dislike the change that holidays can bring when they are transported to boarding establishments. In worst-case scenarios, they can become stressed and withdrawn when away from their usual environment.

Petpals’ pet sitters in Hendon & Hampstead can reflect your usual animal care routine while you are away on holiday or business by visiting your pet at home to take care of their needs. Despite your absence, familiar sounds and smells reassure cats and small pets, and they soon accept a pet sitter coming in to feed them, keep them clean, and provide valuable companionship.

We visit once or twice a day to ensure that your pets are healthy and happy, administering medication as needed and providing plenty of TLC while you are away. Petpals’ cat sitters are ideal for nervous or elderly cats seeking the reassurance of familiar surroundings if their owner is away.

Our small pet sitters cater to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, birds, and exotics, ensuring they are taken care of, fed, and cleaned according to your normal routine.

Petpals’ regular visits to your home while you are away also serve as a security measure. We can remove post, open and close curtains or blinds, put out the bins, and water plants, all of which suggests the house is still occupied.

If you need a sitter for your cat, dog or small pet, find a pet sitter with Petpals for peace of mind. Pet owners can trust Petpals Hendon & Hampstead for comprehensive house sitting and pet sitting services, knowing their pets are in good hands.
