Our Reviews

Just to let you know how delighted I was with the care of Lola whilst I was away. Nadia looked after her so well, not only caring for her material needs but also making a fuss of her and sending me daily videos of a happy cat. The videos were very reassuring for me, many thanks to Nadia. The Cat Butler service is an excellent idea, so good that the cat is able to stay in her own familiar surroundings. I will certainly use The Cat Butler in future and hope that Nadia will be available to care for Lola again.

Carol, Owner of Lola

From my initial enquiry until after our holiday, it was such a pleasure to deal with Sandra and Caroline. It came across loud and clear that they both love what they do. We’ve only had our cats a few months and they were rescue cats, so we were quite apprehensive about how they’d get on with us being away for the first time, but we didn’t need to worry too much. I got updates, pictures and videos every day about how they were getting on, so it really put our minds at ease. We would absolutely use The Cat Butler again and highly recommend their services.

Zoe, Owner of Luna & Willow

I absolutely love this service! It’s very efficiently run and hassle-free for me. Our cats are less stressed and better off at home while we’re away. They receive wonderful care, attention and playful interaction. We always use the Cat Butler as and when we need to. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Alana, Owner of Sabre & Milo

I’ve been using The Cat Butler for a few years and they are fab, they all love cats and it shows! Great to go away knowing that our cat is so well looked after and always nice to get updates and pictures from the visits. I’d always use them over the cattery. Just back from a week away with Nadia looking after our cat Milo and she did a great job, we’ll be booking again!

Marie, Owner of Milo

We left our cat for the first time since adopting him, and I was so impressed with The Cat Butler service. Booking was straightforward with a great online system, and our cat sitter was absolutely wonderful. She kept us updated and this really put our minds at ease. On our return, our cat seemed happy and content. I'm delighted to have found a service that I know I will trust many more times in the future.

Tracy, Owner of Thomas

A wonderful business idea as it gave us peace of mind regarding the wellbeing of our two young cats and our home security at the same time whilst on holiday. Our Cat Butler sent us daily updates, photos and videos and even managed to really bring one of our shy kitties out of her shell - she's like a new cat! Highly recommend this local business to everyone - it is a highly personalised and very reasonably priced service!

Kristen, Owner of Midnight & Spike

I have been using The Cat Butler for years now and highly recommend them. They take such good care of both my cats and as one is elderly, I hate leaving them, but I know I will come back to happy cats who have been well looked after. I always come back to a clean house, watered plants and I know that my cats have been well cared for. I get daily updates and pictures which put my mind at ease. Such a fab team!!!

Reneé, Owner of Spookie & Pixie

As always The Cat Butler really is the premium service for us and our cat. The team are organised, professional and trustworthy. It’s always a great comfort to get updates when we are away and our cat is so well looked after that I don't even think she notices we are gone sometimes!  Highly recommended.

Janine, Owner of Elsa

We were extremely lucky to have The Cat Butler looking after our loving but very timid cat, Daphne. Our cat sitter was so gentle with her when she first met her and to my amazement, after a couple of days in her care Daphne was roaring with purrs and absolutely loving all the love and cuddles. It is so reassuring to know that we can go away and relax knowing that Daphne is very happy at home. 

Vicki, Owner of Daphne

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Cat Butler for looking after Tilly the last couple of weeks! She was a very happy cat when we arrived home. We hated the idea of putting her in a cattery, and after this experience, we know that that will never need to be an option because their team is fantastic!

Hannah, Owner of Tilly

I'm a bit wary of strangers going into my house, how can you reassure me?

We understand that hiring a cat sitter can be a daunting task. After all, you will trust this person, not just with your home, but also with your precious cat.

When you hire a cat sitter from The Cat Butler, you can rest assured that every single one of our professional cat sitters has been thoroughly screened and vetted by us, trained by us, and is fully insured and supported by us. We only employ cat sitters who we’d trust with our own cats - because we know how important your feline friend is to you.

Before you go away, we'll come to meet you and get to know your cat. This allows you to, not only meet the person who will be going into your home but also for you to show us the care routine, where to find the cat supplies, how to work the house alarm etc.

While you are away, your Cat Butler will visit your cat as agreed. The visits are GPS tracked for your peace of mind. Your Cat Butler will send you regular updates, photos and videos, which gives you the reassurance that your cat is being well looked after.

How much does your cat sitting service cost?

It varies from area to area, but as a guide, our cat sitting service costs £13 per visit for up to three cats. If you're lucky enough to have more then three cats, please contact us for a quote.

Please note that we would need to provide at least one daily visit to check all is well with your cat i.e. we don't provide an 'every other day service' as this puts cats at risk.

Find out more on our Rates page.

When and how often do you visit my cat?

We visit at least once every 24 hours, and you can specify AM or PM visits (or both, if you prefer).

Please note that we would need to provide at least one daily visit to check all is well with your cat i.e. we don't provide an 'every other day service' as this puts cats at risk.

If your cat requires medication at the same time each day, we will schedule our visits around this. Otherwise, although we try and stick to the same schedule each day, we can’t guarantee visits will be made at a specific time.


How long do you spend with my cat?

As long as they will let us! Some cats are shy, or like to keep themselves to themselves. We provide a reassuring presence for them, and make sure that they have everything that they need.

Other cats, kittens in particular, will often require more attention - they want to play, they show us that they want affection, and they love a good cuddle - we are always happy to oblige!
