Cat sitting W9 – Sol and Cleo

Joanne – Maida Vale

Thanks for the fact sheet, Anita (& for those wonderful videos of Sol playing, which cheered me up on my first day back at work!) The fact sheet is very interesting & useful.

We collected the keys okay, and are truly grateful for everything you did for Sol & Cleo last week. They both looked well and happy, and although delighted to see us (I’m glad to say!) bore no signs of being slightly anxious, which has happened when we’ve left them in the past.

Sol loves the toys you brought him, and we’ve all had hours of fun playing with him since we got back – he looks very youthful for his age and is really behaving like an energetic kitten again, which is lovely to see.

The texts, pictures & videos you sent put my mind at rest hugely and so I actually relaxed far more than I normally do when we’re away from them – we were really delighted and would love to ask you to look after them again next time we go on holiday (probably for a week in September, but I’ll let you know exact dates etc once we’ve booked it all).

Once again, massive thanks & see you again soon,

All the best

  • Clients receive regular updates via any social media or text/email

Cleo and Sol were happy with Catnips cat sitting service and your cat(s) will be too!
