About Our Sitting Kitty Cat Sitters
Why choose Sitting Kitty for your cat care?
We are the feline friendly alternative to a cattery. Your furry cat and kitten friends can stay in the comfort of their own home whilst you are away, safe in the knowledge that Sitting Kitty provides exceptional cat sitting care.
Sitting Kitty is a longstanding, limited company and we pride ourselves on providing a professional, trustworthy and dependable service. We are fully insured and are members of international Cat Care (formerly the Feline Advisory Bureau).
Both Maggie and Alex take their cat sitter responsibilities seriously and have DBS (formally Criminal Records Bureau) checks and any carers they employ are subject to the same rigorous security and safety checks.
Understanding Cat Care Medication
Over the years we have become very adept at recognising some of the more common ailments that affect cats. We have also gained in depth experience in nursing cats with more long term conditions such as: Hyperthyroidism, heart conditions, lymphoma, tumours, diabetes, kidney problems, asthma, allergies, special dietary requirements and we also provide palliative care.
Given the above, we are very comfortable with all kinds of medications: pills, inhalers, injections and medicines in liquid form, we have even administered Subcutaneous Fluids to a cat with chronic kidney disease.
We understand the responsibility of caring for a cat that requires consistent care such as the strict timings for administering insulin and have an understanding of the types of cat medication most commonly prescribed.
Cat Feeding & Litter Trays
The diet of your cat whilst you are away is something we pay special attention to. How your cat is feeding is a good guide to the overall wellbeing of your cat. We ensure clean, fresh cat food is placed on every visit. Our team keep an eye to see that your cat is feeding appropriately. We also ensure there is plenty of fresh water so that your cat stays hydrated.
We also clean litter trays on each visit and dispose of the waste responsibly.
Background and Experience as Cat Sitters
Maggie Kenny has owned and run Sitting Kitty since 2003. Alex Bremner joined as a full time partner in 2015, after eight years of caring for cats with Sitting Kitty on a part time basis. Their combined wealth of knowledge, experience and love of all things to do with cats and kittens is a testament to the long-standing success of Sitting Kitty.
Maggie worked in the fashion industry for fifteen years before realising that the job was not fulfilling her. Having always loved and owned cats she turned her attention to a career that would involve caring for and working with these furry felines.
Maggie’s life is now greatly enriched by cats, currently having six of her own and caring for the Sitting Kitty cats. She has also volunteered at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, preparing cats for rehoming and as a consequence Maggie has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in cat care.
With the growth of the business, it is very important to Maggie that she retains the personal touch with her well-loved and loyal customers, so it seemed natural for her to ask Alex who knows both the cats and the business to join her as a partner.
