I first started looking at cat sitting when I dropped our two cats off to a cattery which I declared was the last time I would do this, as my cats didn't enjoy this experience and it took a couple of weeks for them to be themselves.
I found Debbie online and organised a home visit I then had to convince my husband this was the best option.
He wasn't convinced until Debbie came round and answered all his questions about security, keys etc and he was more sold when our nervous cat came and said hello to her, as he normally hides from anyone new.
We then did a test weekend which was wonderful being able to go away and not have to worry as we got updates from Debbie and the cats liked the fact their new friend offered treats!!
We will now always use Debbie as she treats our cats as her own and she is the only person we would trust to look after our cats.
