Our Reviews

We have used Nadia at the Cat Butler for a number of years and have always been absolutely delighted with the service received. Our cat is cared for brilliantly, and our home is carefully looked after. Nadia is completely trustworthy, super responsive and always goes above and beyond to ensure our cat receives the best care. The Cat Butler has huge advantages over any cat hotel, not least the fact your cat can remain in their home environment and get to know and trust a single cat sitter dedicated to their care. Very highly recommended!

James, Owner of Dusty

We have used the Cat Butler for a few years now for our two cats - they are highly, highly recommended. It is so much better for the cats to be living at home than at a cattery while we are away, and they get some attention twice a day; plus, The Cat Butler will open and close curtains, put the bins out etc., to make your home look lived in. The cost is similar to a cattery stay for our two cats, so it is a no-brainer. They also send you photos and videos regularly.  They even had to take one of the cats to the vet, no problem. Thank you, The Cat Butler; we love you!

Neil, Owner of Lucy & Mittens

Gregory was the best pet sitter we've ever had! I would definitely request The Cat Butler services again as he took such good care of our ragdoll cat, checking in on him twice a day while we were away and sending us video updates each time. Gregory fed, cleaned and most importantly, spent time with Muffin making sure he got some affection and playtime each day. He's very trustworthy, friendly and knowledgeable about cats, and we looked forward to his video updates each day as we could see he genuinely enjoyed seeing Muffin! Definitely appreciate the extra help around the house with mail collection, plant watering and tidy ups. We will see you again soon, Gregory!

Macella, Owner of Muffin

We have an adopted housecat, so we were really keen to find a cat sitter we could trust. I'm so pleased we found the Cat Butler. We feel totally at ease leaving our cat to be looked after by Bev. She has always looked after our cat, so he now knows her, which is lovely.  As well as feeding, she gives him lots of fuss and playtime, and it's clear from the photos/videos she sends us that he's always very happy to see her. We really appreciate the updates too! Very happy with The Cat Butler's services and would definitely recommend them.

Sarah, Owner of Stitch

We have used The Cat Butler several times and will continue to do so. Having looked at some fairly depressing “cat hotels,” we decided that it would be kinder to let our cat staycation at home. We get regular daily updates, pictures and videos and feel assured our cat is in safe hands. Cost-wise, a cat hotel is similar (cheaper in some circumstances), but knowing our cat is at home and on familiar grounds works much better. Our cat seems happy with that arrangement too!

Simon, Owner of Bluey

This was the first time Lucy took care of Satine, and she did a great job! Lucy came to our house a couple of weeks beforehand to meet Satine first and go through her routine. Satine is a senior little lady who is almost 17, so she requires medication twice daily. You can tell Lucy loves cats just as much as us, so we knew Satine would be in good hands and giving her medicine was not a problem for Lucy. Lucy sent us updates and photos throughout our holiday, so we felt like we could enjoy our holiday knowing our little fur bear was in good hands! Thank you so much to Lucy and the Cat Butler team, and we will definitely be using the service again for our next holiday! 

Julia, Owner of Satine

I've been using the Cat Butler for several years now and can't say enough good things about them. My cat is very timid, so would get very stressed going to a cattery. The Cat Butler team always take such good care of her, and I know she's in very good hands. I love the fact that they don't just feed her but spend time petting her. She hardly misses me! Thank you, Cat Butler team!

Sheryl , Owner of Katniss

Natalie looked after Amber whilst we were on our holiday and she was amazing. Amber was very pampered and I felt very happy with the care Natalie gave her. Natalie also looked after our house for us and did all sorts of extras like putting out the bins and watering the plants etc. It's all much appreciated knowing that both Amber and my home were in such safe hands. We will be using The Cat Butler again when we next go away. I highly recommend both Natalie and The Cat Butler.

Niki, Owner of Amber

Mel was great and Biggy was very happy and relaxed when we arrived home, so she certainly enjoyed having Mel looking after her. Mel would send me photos and videos every day of Biggy to let me know that everything was fine. The Cat Butler team have always been extremely efficient and reliable. They are always professional and organised and I highly recommend them.

Rosalie, Owner of Biggy

Wonderful Cat Butler service by Kaye. She communicated daily to let us know how things were with our three cats, which meant we could relax while away, knowing they were in good hands and getting loads of cuddles and attention. There is also peace of mind with someone in and out of the house for extra security! Highly recommend!!

Kristen, Owner of Midnight, Gobbolino and Ziggy

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!
