Meet and Greet

We always arrange a ‘Meet and Greet’ visit before the cat-sitting begins so that you can tell us about your cat’s personality, food and where they eat, portion sizes, litter changing and any concerns you may have.

We will collect information about regular habits, medication and where in your home the cats are safe to go.

We will collect house keys and learn about secure access plus any alarm systems we need to be aware of.

 

We make sure to collect all your contact information before you leave, plus an emergency contact just in case.

We also collect your vet details. In the event that urgent care is needed, we will take them to your vet or an emergency vet if it's out of hours.

Step 1 - Arrival

On arrival we make sure doors are safely closed before checking on your cat. They can sometimes be waiting on the other side of the door so it’s important that we also check carefully before opening the door to avoid escapees!

Step 2 - Greeting

Some of our cats rush to meet us, others run and hide. All are different and our experienced cat-sitters know the best ways to greet their cats. For those that like a fuss we spend some time stroking, cuddling and chatting with them. They are likely to have been alone for several hours and may need some human contact straight away.

For those that are more shy or timid, we take their lead and let them do whatever makes them feel safe. Some spend our whole visit under (or in!) the bed, and that’s fine. Many cats are too nervous to approach a stranger at all and for these cats we simply put out everything they need, clean their trays and quietly leave to minimise the time that they feel stress. They can then come out of hiding and enjoy a peaceful dinner in their own time.

We take this opportunity to give your cat a quick check over to make sure they are well and healthy, particularly for cats that go outdoors. Occasionally they may have picked up a scratch or bump so we give them a quick once-over to check, and take any action necessary to ensure their wellbeing.

Step 3 - Feeding

For many cats, we are strongly associated with ‘food’ so after greetings are over, we move straight on to feeding. We wash their bowls and put out a fresh portion of their usual food as per your instructions.

During the visit we keep a check on how much they have eaten and report back to you, so you can tell if they are eating less or more than usual. In multi-cat households we keep an eye on them while they eat to make sure there isn’t any squabbling or food-stealing!

Step 4 - Litter

Most of our customers have a litter tray for their cats, even if they go outdoors. We follow your instructions on how often to change litter, where to put the contents (poop bags, outdoor bins etc) and we check the trays at every visit. We also carry our own Litter Kits so we are always armed with scoops, bin bags, wipes and cloths in case of any excess mess. We always clean up any accidents that may occur outside the tray or elsewhere in the house.

Some cats like to visit their litter trays straight after eating so we may do a second ‘scoop’ so that the tray is still clean for them when we leave.

Step 5 - Play Time!

The best part!

Now is the time we can sit and have a play with your cats if they want. We give them lots of attention and strokes, talk to them and let them play with their favourite toys. Laser pointers are a favourite for many, and this gives them some exercise as they rush around chasing the red dot!

We groom if needed, and finally take some photos (if they stay still) to send in our daily updates. Sometimes photos aren’t possible for cats who are shy, so we don’t disturb them and simply send you message updates instead.

Step 6 - Home Security and Final Checks

As well as visiting your cats we can also do some basic Home Security tasks, such as closing curtains, switching lamps and lights on, watering plants and putting bins out. If you would like us to do this please let us know at your Meet & Greet visit. We purposefully don’t display brand advertising on our vehicles, so it won’t draw any attention to you being away.

We can ensure that your home looks ‘lived in’ for you thereby reducing the risk of burglary or other anti-social behaviour.

We are also on hand for any emergencies such as leaks, faulty alarms etc and can inform you as soon as we notice anything unusual.

For outdoor cats, we check cat-flaps are working and ensure timers are set where necessary. Finally, we check all external windows and doors are secure, before saying our goodbyes and leaving your cats for a well-earned snooze.

I have two nervous cats who hate the car and cattery so a home sitting service works perfectly. Wendy reassured us from start to finish - from her initial visit to meet us and Minnie & Coco (when they wouldn’t come anywhere near her), through to... the regular updates whilst we we were away (including videos of lots of strokes and cuddles - she worked her magic!). Cannot recommend highly enough and also great value for money! My Three Cats are already booked in for our next two trips 😻🙌read more

Wendy has been looking after our two cats Bo and Jess for the last couple of years. Wendy takes excellent care of them whilst we are away, which means we can enjoy our time away without worrying. She keeps us updated with messages and photos which... is a lovely touch. Both cats are very relaxed when we return, as if we haven’t been away. Wendy is a lovely, kind and caring crazy cat lady and I couldn’t recommend her cat sitting service enough.read more

After a 10 day holiday and leaving. 6 month old kitten with our resident cat, it made sense to yet again use Wendy and her fabulous My Three Cats.We got daily updates, made to reassure us for leaving both cats for so long. Other than Simba (our... kitten) who is needy anyway, both cats am have been extremely well looked after as always.Thanks again Wendy, see you next year xxxread more

Wendy looked after our 3 cats while we were on holiday for 2 weeks in August. She was very reliable and sent us photos most days. I’d thoroughly recommend Wendy as a cat sitter, and it’s much less stressful for the cats than kennels.

We are so grateful for Wendy looking after our two kitties recently. She came to meet us beforehand and made sure to know all of our kitties likes and dislikes. Wendy put us at ease whilst we were away, texting us with updates and photos. Knowing... Annie and Clive were happy at home allowed us to relax. We will definitely be booking in again, no more catteries.read more

Wendy was an absolute superstar when we first got our Kittens and they still needed feeding 4 times a day. This was difficult with our jobs. Wendy stepped in and helped with feeding. She was flexible when we needed her at short notice. Now our... kittens are growing up, Wendy has fed them whilst we have gone on holiday. It’s great for the cats, so they can stay at home and not get stressed in a cattery. We also loved that she kept us updated with pictures of what the kittens were up to, which reassured us that they were comfortable in her company. When we first spoke to her, Wendy took real care to get all the details of our cats requirements and what we needed from her. I felt instantly comfortable with Wendy and sure she would do a great job.I will definitely ask Wendy for help in the future and would recommend her.read more

Wendy looks after my four house cats whenever I am away on holiday and always does a great job. She is reliable, trustworthy and always keeps me updated on how my fur babies are with regular messages, photos and videos. Although my cats are fairly... timid, they seem happy to be looked after by her and are gradually getting braver with each visit. It’s so important to know I am leaving my cats with someone who will give them the care and attention they deserve and Wendy never lets me down. I would thoroughly recommend her!read more

After being very badly let down and taken for a ride by a previous cat sitter we were understandably nervous about leaving our fur babies in someone else's care. However, we found Wendy in our local area. When she came to set up the visits she put... us at ease with her assurances and all the right questions were asked.Our cats are rescue cats and very timid around strangers so photos and videos were impossible but wendy went above and beyond ensuring the cats were OK and regular updates by text helped us relax. I have to say that usually the cats sulked for days upon our return but this time they were out to greet us straight away and this tells me they were looked after well and are happy with their care. Wendy has done exactly what was asked and went above and beyond for a neurotic fur baby owner.We have no reservations whatsoever about having Wendy sit our cats again and highly recommend her to any pet owner,Thank you Wendy!read more

Wendy recently looked after our 2 elderly cats, who are very set in their ways (!!) and don't like change so no way we'd put them in a cattery. Wendy looked after them both for a week while we were on holiday, and she gave us regular updates and... reassurance while away. We came back to 2 very happy cats! Will definitely use again, in fact already booked her again. Thanks Wendy!read more

Wendy has just looked after my cat for the past 2 weeks and we would highly recommend her. The cat has never been so happy for us to be away and we had regular updates and videos throughout the holiday. Wendy also goes above and beyond and for that... we massively appreciate everything she has done. Will definitely book again. Thank you Wendy, you’re amazing! Xread more

I contacted Wendy very last minute as my dad who usually takes care of our cat when I go away was called away too, Our 2 year old cat Mr Kitkat took an instant liking to Wendy when she came and visited the day before I went which put my mind at... rest, she sent lovely pics and text updates while I was away so I knew he was happy!! Nothing was too much trouble for her We will defiantly be using her again! Thanks again 🙂 xxxread more

We’ve never put our two cats into the cattery and have always relied on neighbours or friends to pop in and feed them both whilst we’re away. Whilst this has been good, it has meant that for the most part they have been fed but both of my cats... are quite sociable and actually like the company. Having Wendy come and see them every day and not only feed them but keep them company has been brilliant.Both Charlie and Macy usually make me suffer when we get back from our holiday and ignore us for a few days. Not this time! They’ve been so well looked after that when we got home it was like we’d never been away!Thank you so much, will definitely be using again ����read more

After leaving our cats at a cattery numerous times and hating it every time, we decided that we should ask someone to care for them at home. Wendy did a fabulous job of taking care of our two cats and kept us updated with messages and pictures on a... regular basis. As soon as we got home I could tell they were a lot happier with this arrangement. They were their usual selves and had been eating well. I cannot recommend Wendy enough if you need someone to take care of your furry babies � Thanks again Wendy xread more

Wendy visited us before we went away to discuss Our requirements and to get to know Bailey. While we were away she visited twice a day to feed him and to give him a fuss! She sent photos of him to us which were very reassuring so we knew he was ok,... and gave us regular updates of how he was. I would definitely recommend Wendy and would not hesitate to book her again if we are going away. For Bailey this was much better than going into a cattery as he was able to stay in his own home and be looked after. Thank you from a satisfied customer and a very happy Bailey �read more
