About Me

I work as a Freelance Illustrator, so I am flexible in terms of time and appointments. Over the last five years, I have proudly owned a black long-haired rescue cat named Waylon. My girlfriend and I collected him from The Celia Hammond Cats' Home. He was begging for a home (as many cats are), but we thought Waylon was pretty special. Everything is on his terms. He wakes me early for breakfast and as I have low self-esteem, I get up and feed him. He likes his routine and subscribes to the idea that we procured everything in our flat entirely for him. 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 many cat friends, namely Bailey, George, Schpitz, Pierre, Tootsie and Fudge. I have fed friends' cats in the past, and without trouble, too. 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, I wouldn't dream of another dog.

    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.

    Tim is amazing! He looked after our two cats all weekend and I think they might prefer him to us now.

    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 has always been very quick to respond to any messages, he kept us well updated the whole way through our holiday and we came back to two happy 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 :)
