About Me

Receive 10% off your First Booking with me of 2 Days or More

Hi! My name is Tara, I am a Single Mum and a 'Cat Whisperer'. Most of my life I've had pets, mostly cats and currently I am the guardian of three rescues, Darth (12yrs old), Ozzy (10yrs old) & Aubie (5yrs old). I love meeting new cats (and people) and cat sitting really helps me to make ends meet.

I've a CPD Certified Certificate with Distinction in Feline Behaviour & Psychology as well as a CPD Certified Certificate for successfully completing a Cat & Kitten Essential Care course (both can be viewd on my FB Page).

Please be aware that I am on a shift rota at my full-time job and a couple days a week, I will be working various hours from 9am - 9pm. I know this may effect your cats' in/out or eating schedule so I will let you know if I am scheduled with these hours during enquiry.

Please contact me so I can meet with you and your kitties and get to know each other and discuss your cats' needs while you are away.

When your fur babies are under my care, they will get clean water, fresh food, litter cleaning (if applicable), playtime, cuddles & belly rubs every visit; if they allow it of course. Plus any specific instructions given to ensure your kitties are happy and healthy while you are away.

I cover homes in Cheshunt, Broxbourne, Hoddesdon, Ware and some Hertford areas.

    Tara looked after our fur baby Jax for 7 days, and she was absolutely brilliant. We received daily photos and updates and she really took the time to play with him and give him lots of attention. We returned to a very happy, relaxed cat. We are truly grateful and Jax is already looking forward to having her look after him again in a few weeks time!

    Tara was a superstar, looking after Gemmi and navigating the pitfalls of my somewhat dodgy house alarm like an old pro! I am ever so grateful for how well everything went and I am glad to recommend her.

    Thank you for looking after the boys while we were away (and for your lovely thank you note which was nice to come home to). You are the cat sitter for us!

    Thank you Tara for again looking after my girls. Knowing they are being so well looked after when I'm away makes us all happy.

    She’s awesome! Excellent communicator, great availability, practical, down to earth! She really went the extra mile for us bringing catnip spray around to help our baby like his new scratching post and sending photos and videos. She was so responsive and trustworthy. Couldn’t fault her. We were hoping to establish a good local working relationship and we did just that! You can tell how much she loves cats from her very first visit. Thanks Tara! :)

    Very happy with Tara’s services. My cats seemed very relaxed in her care, even my nervous 12 yr old. Received lots of lovely photos & videos of our babies while we were away which reassured us that the cats were fine. Would definitely use Tara again in the future.

    Thank you Tara for all your kindness & help with Pebbles whilst I was on holiday. I would thoroughly recommend you for taking care of anyone's cat as you go beyond expectations to keep cat's happy & secure whilst their owner is not there. I will definitely be using you again.

    Would recommend Tara to look after you cat as she goes above and beyond in caring for your furbabies. She loves them and spoils them and makes them happy and relaxed so you can enjoy your holiday with no worries

    Tara was kind, attentive and extremely helpful, I was delighted when I realised that she is more than happy to look after the home as well as the cats. Even my neighbors commented how attentive she was and that she spent a good amount of time with the cats. Usually our eldest sulks and won’t come to us for a couple of days after a holiday, but this time he didn’t, I assume it’s because he got enough attention from Tara. Tara kept in contact whilst we was away, sending me videos, pics and updates. Fantastic! I will definitely be using Tara again & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.
