As a cat lover and experienced cat sitter, I provide home visits to your cat that give the same level of love, care and affection that you provide as an owner.  Whether you are going on holiday, having a weekend break or need someone to look after your feline friend whilst at work or away from your home.  I will provide their usual routine in their home surroundings with lots of added love for your peace of mind. 

Cat care to suit you and your cat...

My aim as a cat sitter is to provide an excellent and loving service that is unique to each cat’s individual needs.  There definitely isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach to your cats care, as they are  ‘one of a kind’; their welfare and happiness is my priority.  You can be assured that I will give your cat (or cats!), as much love and attention as if they were my own. 

Based in Mulbarton I can easily visit any locations in close proximity to Mulbarton, Hethersett, Wymondham, Cringleford, Keswick, Ashwellthorpe and surrounding areas of south Norwich, including NR4, NR9, NR14, NR16 and NR18.  However, if I haven’t mentioned your area and you are relatively close by please get in touch.

Leaving a cat can be a stressful time for both you and your furry friend however, leaving your cat in his/her home relieves that stress significantly.  Cats are territorial creatures with amazing senses and don’t like change.  So it is of no surprise that being put into a carrier, transported to a cattery and taken away from all familiar sights, odours, sounds and space is an uncomfortable and less than pleasant experience for a cat.  Cats are creatures of home comforts and far happier in their own and familiar environment, surroundings and routines.  I provide them with their usual routines, of play, grooming, diet, medication and care they need.

As a little extra reassurance, I am qualified as a Feline First Aider, DBS checked and fully insured so you are in the safest of hands.

Making a booking couldn’t be easier! Just drop me an email, whatsapp, complete the contact form below or give me a call and I can discuss your needs as well as arrange a home visit to meet you and your cat.

My care

I offer cat care visits in your own home allowing your cat to remain in his/her usual surroundings and territory.  I can visit once, twice or as many times a day as you require.

Each visit is special for me and for your cat too and will provide them with the care they need and will definitely include playing, fussing, grooming or sitting with them if that is what they like but if your cat prefers his/her own company that’s ok too; I can keep the visit shorter so as not to disturb them any more than necessary.  Each cat is unique, some cats are confident and happy for fuss straight away, some are nervous and require a much slower approach.  I can also let cats in/out as they need.

It's all part of the care I provide...

When we meet, you will realise that I absolutely adore cats and my care is as individual as they are. My care will including:

Arrange a meet and greet to get to know exactly what you and your cat need and to discuss any specifics about their care to make sure both you and they are happy. It gives me a great opportunity to meet your cat too.

During each visit I will clean the feeding area, wash bowls, replenish food and water, as well as clean out and empty litter trays and deal with any animal mishaps. If needed I am happy to visit a pet shop and top up supplies if they run out during your time away.

Caring for your cat will always be my top priority and I make the visit exactly what your cat needs and enjoys and include playtime, cuddles, fussing and grooming, if they enjoy that. I will also let cats in and out (keeping them in if they are a stay at home cat) as part of their usual routine.

In the unlikely event your cat needs medical assistance while you are away, I would seek veterinary treatment from their usual vet. I am happy to administer medication if required and agreed with you.

Additional pets? If you have other pets such as guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, hens or fish, I am very happy to look after them too. This would include replenishing food and water as well as cleaning out cages. For the fluffy variety I am happy to take them out of their cage if you would like me to.

Cat diary - I’ll keep you informed! If you are happy for me to do so, I will send update messages including photos and videos, to let you know how your cat and I are getting along. I always send a message and pictures after my first visit to say that all is well! There’s nothing worse, than being away from your special friend and wondering if the ‘cat sitter’ has turned up.

Caring for your home! If you are on holiday while I am caring for your cat, I can give your home an occupied look by picking up post, opening and shutting curtains, turning lights/radios on and off, watering plants and putting out bins. I can also leave essentials such as bread, milk etc. for your return home.

Your home will be kept and left exactly as I find it and your cat will enjoy being in the comfort of their own home with all their creature comforts.

I am happy to 'hold' keys if required for future visits.

About me

I simply adore cats!

I still have my favourite childhood book ‘Kittens and More Kittens’.  I spent many hours looking at the picture cover deciding which were my favourite kittens.  Of course, I could never really choose.  My dream was to be like the lady in my story book who says: “I will never have too many kittens”.

Realising now that this is not entirely practical, I fulfil my dream by cat sitting; helping other cat lovers by providing a cat sitting service ensuring your cat wants for nothing.

I was lucky enough to grow up in the company of two beautiful Siamese cats and have owned gorgeous moggies throughout my life.   My love for cats has only ever grown.

Bookings can be from one day to however long is needed.  Cost of a visit is usually £8.00, this includes my travel costs and an initial free meet and greet to take all necessary information for the care of your cat(s), meeting you and your special friend(s) and any other small pets and key collection at  that visit.

The cost may vary dependent on the full postcode that I’m visiting. Generally this cost is per visit  regardless of the number of cat(s)/pets, however there may be a small charge if there are lots of animals to love or additional services needed.

I am so pleased we discovered Alex at Miaow Cat Sitting, it makes going away so much easier and gives us piece of mind knowing our cats are well looked after! We previously used a wonderful cattery, but since moving home the journey is a little too far, and our cats get very stressed when in their... carriers. They are both always so relaxed when we come home, no more pacing around the house! Alex is lovely; I completely trust leaving my cats and home in her hands whilst we are away!read more

Can’t recommend Alex highly enough she cares so wonderfully for our three, and is so patient with the ongoing and ever changing medication needs of our elderly Bengal. Wouldn’t trust them with anyone else! X

Alex recently looked after our two cats and we would highly recommend her. Firstly, she clearly LOVES cats! She came to meet them the week before and then sent us updates, pics and even a video while we were away, which was very reassuring. She is completely reliable and a lovely caring person -... fussing and playing with her charges, not just feeding them. We came home to two very contented cats. Thank you!read more

I have used Alex a few of times to look after my cats. She is a lovely lady who has gone above and beyond to look after my fur babies. It’s a great comfort to know they are in such good hands. Would highly recommend 🐈🐈

I would absolutely recommend Miaow Cat Sitting. Both our cats can be shy around new people but they were both comfortable around Alex almost immediately. Alex took great care of them whilst we were away and spent time fussing them each day rather than just feeding them and leaving which we really... appreicated. Alex also sent some pictures of them both whilst we were away which was a really nice touch. Having used a cattery in the past, with both cats clearly stressed when we have left them which in turn has left us worried about them whilst we have been away, I am really pleased we have found an excellent alternative and we will certainly be using Alex again.read more

Alex has looked after our cats on several occasions and we know that they are in a safe pair of hands. On one occasion I said we were coming home a day earlier than we were, but this was no trouble for Alex who was more than happy to come one more day at late notice. I also love the updates and... pictures I get whilst we are away.read more

We have recently been away for a family trip, it is never an easy task looking after our 4 cats, 4 fish, 2 rabbits and 4 guinea pigs, but Alex has done an exceptional job! We returned to very happy and healthy furbabies who have clearly recieved outstanding care! Cannot thank you enough! Xxx

Alex looked after our two boys while we were on holiday for two weeks. They were very well cared for and happy to stay at home. We enjoyed the photo updates and would recommend Alex’s cat sitting service. She really cares!

Having chatted with Alex and seen how organised and professional she is, I was very confident our cats would be well cared for and they certainly were! Alex kept me up to date with text messages and photos, which was very reassuring. She even managed to get our very nervous little one to play; she... clearly loves cats and is willing to take the time to make sure they are happy! I have no hesitation in recommending her.read more

It’s such a relief that we have Alex! We can now go away knowing that Millie is in excellent hands. Alex really cares about what she does - taking time to comfort and play with Millie, sending us updates for peace of mind, and generally being very attentive. More importantly when we come home... after some time away, Millie is relaxed. Thank you Alex. Xxread more

We have a very elderly cat and we have used Alex a number of times to look after her. Alex goes above and beyond the call of duty when she looks after your cat - she looks after them as if they were her own cats. Alex provides regular updates whilst you are away and is very professional with all... her arrangements so you know your cat is in safe hands. Most cats prefer to be in their own homes and Alex makes that possible - I have peace of mind when I am away knowing my cat is being well looked after. Highly recommended by me and my cat!read more

Alex is amazing with our two cats Snowy and Twinkles. She is so passionate and caring, we feel so reassured that they are in the best care when we go away. Alex sends us photos of them which is great to see, especially for the children. So glad we found her, we couldn’t recommend her enough.

Alex was brilliant with our two fur babies Toby and Tilly. She totally put our minds at ease whilst we were away and sent regular updates with how they were, along with photos which were so lovely to receive. I would highly recommend Alex as she will thoroughly spoil your cats and make sure they... are happy, content and well looked after! 🌟read more

We cannot thank Alex enough for the love and passion she has for what she does and looking after our Diva Myrtle. Alex has been there for all of us at short notice. Our cat is so fussy who she takes to but it was wonderful to see how relaxed and happy she was under Alex's care. Thank you Alex... 💗🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱💖read more

I can’t thank Alex enough, the way she took care of my cat was amazing! She is thoughtful, reliable and very loving which is exactly what you want from a cat sitter. I felt at ease knowing that my baby is cared for and got updates after every visit which made me realise that my cat loves Alex more... than me now 🙂 I found my perfect cat sitter and I would highly recommend Alex for your pet, she is incredible in every single way 💖 🐾read more
