J Bello – W11

We needed a cat sitter during Christmas for our three female cats (11, 8 and 5 years old) and after a lot of research we decided on Anita. Our cats are not used to strangers at all and need a lot of time to warm up to someone new. While we were away Anita keep us fully updated (by e-mail, taking photos, videos, etc.) and we could clearly see they were gradually warming up to her – to the point of Atena kneading on her lap (which is a very significant achievement)! Even though we were distant we felt close to our cats thanks to the regular updates and were completely comfortable in leaving them in her hands – our cats were certainly happy, as they were given new toys and new treats for them to try out. Anita also helped us to identify additional brands of food our cats liked, as we are in the process of moving towards a mixed dry/wet food diet. We are very happy to recommend Anita to anyone requiring a similar service – I will certainly be using her again.


If you have found yourself on this page, are a cat guardian and live in W11 then it’s more than likely that you will be seeking a cat sitter to care for your cat during your travels.

Why we stand out:

  • We are based in the heart of W11, Notting Hill and all the vets in the area know us and recommend our cat sitting service
  • We have impeccable client references and any of our clients can be contacted for further peace of mind

  • Catnips has full public liability insurance
  • We can take last minute bookings
  • We have a key holding service so if a client has accidentally locked themselves out then this can be solved straight away because their key is being held securely and close by.
  • We are open 52 days of the year
  • We all love cats and understand their behaviours and patterns.
  • Clients receive regular updates via any social media or text/email

Atena, Bolinhas and Moon were happy with Catnips cat sitting service and your cat(s) will be too!
