CHISLEHURST CATS AT HOME

Keep your cat(s) at home whilst you're away - no need for a cattery. I'll also water plants and put the bins out!

Short notice / emergency bookings a speciality.

Several years ago I needed to find a cattery for my two cats after a relative whom I used to reply upon became too elderly to care for them. I managed to find one but my cats didn't like the experience. How much happier they would have been had they been able to stay at home with someone popping in a couple of times a day to look after them and, at the same time, keeping an eye on my house.


Chislehurst Cats at Home was born!

If you are interested in having me to look after your cats in your home, check on your home, water your plants and / or put the bins out give me a call on 020 8468 7945 / 07968 525692 or read on.
