I can highly recommend Vanessa. She looked after our cat twice this summer for a longer period. Vanessa came twice a day and sent videos and pictures of every visit. So we were always informed and knew that our beloved cat is all right. You can easily see that she loves animals and she bonded with our Luna very quickly. She is professional but yet very friendly and sympathetic person. We will definitely use Vanessa‘s pet service in future. More...

I would definitely recommend Vanessa as a pet sitter, we have used her frequently for our two cats and she has always been fantastic. We have used both the twice and once a day service and we always get a photo or an update on how the cats are when we’re away. Her wealth of knowledge and experience thanks to her work in a vets means we can be fully confident our cats are in the best possible hands - thanks Vanessa! More...

Vanessa is a brilliant cat sitter, she spends time getting to know the pets and is very accommodating. She’s incredibly trustworthy and offers competitive rates. We use ‘once upon a furry time’ regularly and always get regular photo updates which puts our minds at ease while we are on holiday. Highly recommend ��� More...

Having used Vanessa’s services to look after our cats a couple of times now I can recommend her and she is great at keeping us up to date with cute photos and videos so we know our cats are doing well. She was also able to get our girl cat to take her meds, something I have been really struggling with so a massive bonus. We will be using her again� More...

Professionalism patient friending


I love the relationships i build with your pets. I look after a lot of rescues that come out of their shell and learn to trust and love me. I dedicate my life to pets and thoroughly enjoy my job. Nothing better than petting a cat or a long walk with a dog.

My love for animals, i worked at a vets also so have hands on training and can cater to any needs. I live in a flat without the ability to have let's so I have so much love to give and find it incredibly rewarding.

I am 5* reviews with 10's of repeat clients! i never fail to impress and am always 110%
