Your Cat Companion will contact you to arrange a FREE initial consultation which will enable you to meet your companion and your companion to meet your cat and more importantly for your cat to meet us. You need to be entirely happy and comfortable with the relationship we have with your cat before deciding to go ahead.

What our clients say

Zoe - Cat Companion

Sting is my beloved cat and has travelled the world with me. We have used many cat sitters in the past. I never met anyone else who I would trust more than Claire to look after him.

Sting is happier being at home than in a cattery when we are away. On travels I pine for him. The very best thing about Claire is that as well as his physical needs taken care of I know she also takes time to play with him (which he loves) and makes a fuss and love him.

For me this peace of mind is priceless. He also loves her and makes an effort to be around when she calls.

If you want someone to love your cat as well as feed them and change their litter tray Claire is the best.

Leah - Cat Companion

We have been using Cat Companion for over 3 years now and have no hesitation in recommending Claire and her team to anyone who needs a caring and trustworthy cat sitter. 

Claire runs the business with the utmost professionalism and care, with her veterinary background also providing us with additional comfort that Lola is well cared for while we are away. We receive regular updates and photos when away for more than a weekend, and always return to clean bowls and litter trays with an update on how she has been.  

One of our favourite sitters is Kylie who is extremely caring and takes the extra time to comfort Lola while we are away. When we initially met Kylie I could tell our cat was comfortable in her company, which is a rarity for strangers.


I was a bit nervous about leaving my cat with a cat sitter for the first time but Claire helped me to feel at ease with keeping me updated about Tiger's progress.

I'm happy to say all went well and that I'll be using Cat Companion again.

Leah - Cat Companion

Claire is extremely passionate about animals and their welfare, which shines through when she cares for our cat Lola. Claire takes the time to understand their routine, likes/dislikes in detail and to the greatest extent possible ensures her routine is maintained while we are away.

We receive photos and updates on a daily basis and Lola is always calm and happy upon our return. I have no doubt that Claire also takes the time to talk and play with Lola while we are away in addition to taking care of the necessities of feeding and cleaning kitty litter etc.

Claire is a beautiful, caring individual and we are very comfortable having her look after Lola and our property while we are away. 

Sara - Cat Companion

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for recommending Nick. He was wonderful with the boys and they seem to really love him. They were so chilled and happy when we got home. 

I also really enjoyed his daily updates and photos. It helped me relax knowing everything was under control. I was a bit nervous using a new service but I shouldn't have worried.
