About Me

Walthamstow’s Best Cat-sitter. Simply the best...(Just ask my clients/check out my Instagram feed—username: e17catsitter)...

Twitter: @e17catsitter Instagram: e17catsitter

I work as a Freelance Illustrator, so I am flexible in terms of time and appointments. I have owned two black cats for 8 years—named Waylon and Jasmine—pretty special cats. They rule the roost at Waylon Towers/Castle Jasmine ...everything is on their terms. Sometimes we are woken early for breakfast by Jasmine. We are their slaves. They believe we procured everything in our flat entirely for them. Our sofa is butchered through use as a scratching post, but who are we to complain? Waylon likes play time with his toy mouse--ten minutes of activity wipes him out, so we cannot fault his stamina levels. He has a cat friend, namely Sailor. Jasmine does not like Sailor, so she will give him the old ‘get out of my house...’ routine. An old hand with cat-sitting, I can handle kitty litter, change water, feed and play with cats so they have some stimulation. I used to have dogs, but now I have Waylon and Jasmine, I wouldn't dream of another dog.

Your cats are guaranteed a lot of play-time. They will be filmed/photographed to send to you via WhatsApp, so you can see your cat is well looked-after. Cuddles and the optional treat (at your discretion) are an absolute must!

If you choose me as your next cat sitter, I will send you daily updates and photos of your furbaby. I will also make sure you come back home to a happy, relaxed cat.

    Tim was great as usual. Communicative, easy going and great with my cat. I can go away knowing my cat is happy and relaxed around him.

    Tim visited before our trip and took the time to get to know our cat’s routine, needs and what she did and didn’t like. He then kept us informed via WhatsApp while we were away, sending pics and video clips of our cat happily enjoying Tim’s care and attention. She was completely relaxed when we returned. Will definitely book Tim again!

    Tim stepped in at the last min when we had to make a quick trip away. A true professional, Tim did a great job looking after Olive and Penny and sent updates every time he visited them - which really helped us to relax.

    They seemed happy when we got back and took to him straight away, which was great.

    Everything was taken care of and communication was excellent, thanks Tim!

    Tim was absolutely brilliant, stepping in last minute when our regular sitter became unavailable. Excellent communication, lots of lovely pics and videos and the cats loved him - even got on his lap, which is unheard of - they usually hide under the sofa when they meet a stranger! Would highly recommend Tim and will definitely book again. Completely dependable, diligent and clearly takes the responsibility seriously. Thanks Tim 🙏🙏🙏

    Tim is a fantastic cat sitter. He always spends extra time playing with my cat Mac and sends me charming photos and videos of Mac while I am away. Lovely to get regular updates and to have someone so reliable taking care of Mac when I'm travelling.

    We are very attached to Mary Berry and we tend to rely on friends and family to look after her when we are away as she is an indoor cat and not used to strangers. This is the first time we had help from a cat sitter and from the moment we met Tim we knew Mary Berry would be in safe hands. Tim asked the right questions when we met, is very knowledgable about cats and clearly a very kind person (even when Mary Berry was not showing him much love back). While we were away, Tim gave us updates with photos and videos of Mary Berry when he visited and we could see she was happy and being well looked after meaning that we could relax. We will certainly be asking Tim to look after Mary Berry again! Thanks Tim!

    Tim was a wonderful cat sitter and took great care of my two cats, including managing the complicated diet and medication for my elderly cat, as well as giving her all the fuss and attention she demanded! I was really pleased they were in such good hands

    Tim was wonderful with our cats - they enjoyed lots of playtime and fuss and were very chilled out, happy customers upon our return. Tim was very communicative throughout and sent plenty of photo and video updates so we knew the cats were in very safe hands.

    Tim was Joni's first cat sitter so we were a little nervous about the process. He put us at ease immediately with his warm and friendly approach to Joni. He asked all the right questions about her day to day routines and had a really good knowledge of cats generally. So much so we left for our travels completely at ease. We received daily photos and messages updating us on the fun they were having together. Tim even watered our plants! Very recommended.

    Tim was a thoughtful and kind sitter. He asked lots of questions in the initial visit that made a first time user like me feel at ease. He hadn’t the oddities of Rizzo’s feeding regime and medicine well. We got good updates and returned to very relaxed cats.

    Tim did a great job of looking after Shaz n Dave, particularly in this hot weather when they both were refusing to come indoors! (BTW it's not clear if I've given Tim 5 or 0 stars. I'm hoping it shows as 5 stars!)

    Tim was amazing! I was very anxious about leaving my two cats for the first time, but Tim was very reassuring and thorough when we met to prepare for their care. He cared for them professionally and in a sensitive and kind manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim and will be booking him for our next trip.

    Tim was brilliant!

    He sent us pictures and videos of the cats while we were away, and we had happy cats waiting when we got home.

    He was really good playing with the cats, even the youngest, who usually hides away for days if we have visitors, was out and playing with him right away.

    Tim looked after our two cats over the weekend - they were their usual selves when we arrived home so Tim had done a great job in keeping them fed and happy! He took the time beforehand to make sure he'd covered everything he needed to know and was also very responsive to messages.

    Thanks to Tim's amazing cat sitting skills, I didn't worry about my cats at all whilst I was away. I knew they were in excellent hands and Tim kept me up to date with their daily activities by sending me photos. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim - he truly cares about your cats.

    Tim is a lovely guy and was fantastic at taking care of my cat Mac. He took time each day to play with Mac along with sending me photos and keeping me updated with short text messages while I was away. Good to find someone who is only a block away that I can rely on for future cat sitting.

    This was our second time with Tim and he was excellent. We even had a second cat this time! He's very reliable and it's a real comfort knowing that he's looking after them, in particular our cat Richard, who seems to love taking selfies with him.

    We could not be any happier with Tim's service. From the outset, he took the time to earn our cat Marmite's trust. In his daily visits he went above and beyond, not just doing the bare essentials but also spending time playing with Marmite and giving her plenty of human interaction. He also sent us photo updates every day which really put our minds to rest. Marmite's had a few different pet sitters over the years but has never before taken to one so quickly or so much. We really could not recommend Tim enough!

    Tim did an excellent job of looking after our cat Dom while we were away. He kindly communicated with me throughout the few days and we returned to a very happy cat. Loved seeing the photos of Tim and Dom and it looks like they are now firm friends! We'll definitely be contacting Tim next time we go away - thanks for everything!

    Tim was fantastic. He was really diligent in getting to know everything he needed about our little moggy in advance. He also sent lots of lovely pics. Could not recommend more highly.

    I have to say that you could not look or wish for a better person to be taking care of your cats. We have two kittens who are wilfully mischievous, Tim has looked after them on two occasions and both times has done an outstanding job. Tim is very good at taking the time to play with them and ensured they were well looked after throughout our trip away. We were also kept informed throughout our visit on how our cats were doing with regular updates. I can’t recommend Tim's cat sitting services highly enough he is a very kind and generous sitter – Thank you, Tim!

    Tim looked after our cat Richard for the weekend and was incredible - he kept our sensitive little cat company and kept in touch all weekend, and even sent us some great photos of the two of them playing around.

    Would highly recommend him and will definitely call him again in the future.

    Tim looked after my beloved moggie Maeve when I was away last weekend. She was in safe hands as Tim clearly adores cats :) Not only was Maeve very well cared for in my absence but the cat dishes had clearly been cleaned and all was left tidy. I returned to a happy cat and a happy home :)
