About Rich
HARDSHIP consideration: see end of blurb.
COVID-19 Update: I follow all madpaws recommendations and am currently practicing low/zero contact hand-offs.
Meet and greets are currently discouraged, but ultimately available and I am also 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.

HARDSHIP: if you are experiencing hardship, especially covid related, please contact me regarding your needs, I am happy to discuss a range of options including substantially reduced rates,especially for multiple cats.

Very happy with my experience! Rich provides great communication and quick response time making the whole process very easy. We had a delayed flight coming back and Rich was super flexible with pick up, giving us plenty of options. He did a great job caring for the kittens and they warmed up to him very well. Will definately book again!
