About Rich
COVID-19 Update: I follow all madpaws recommendations and am currently practicing low/zero contact hand-offs.
Meet and greets are off, but I am happy to talk on the phone and help you figure out whether or not you would have left your cat with me given more normal conditions.

I am an experienced cat carer and would love to have your cats come and stay at my home.
I grew up with cats, volunteer regularly at a local cat shelter ( and have been looking after other people's cats for 8+ years, I have dealt with a wide range of cats and cat personalities. I will heap affection on your furry friend, or leave them to their own devices, or something in between - depending on their personal needs.

I can help only one client at a time, but if you have more than one cat they are all welcome. My listed fees assume you provide your cats' preferred food and litter (my purchasing them can be negotiated for longer stays).
Free pickup/drop-off available in local area.

Rich clearly has a love for cats & was focused on understanding Zed's behaviour and his needs. Zed came home relaxed. Just agree the frequency of communications whilst away so you can also stay relaxed.

Rich is very experienced and accommodating, even offering to pick up / drop off. Our kitty came back calm and relaxed. Would recommend leaving him with Rich again!

Thank you so much for looking after Tim Tam, especially as he had an unexpected health problem that needed attention. This was Tim Tam’s second stay with Rich and we’d love to have Rich look after him again.
