About Rich
HARDSHIP consideration: see end of blurb.
COVID-19 Update: I am fully vaccinated. I currently require clients to identify their vaccination status. I remain happy to serve unvaccinated customers on a minimal contact basis. For vaccinated customers, I don't always wear a mask, but always carry one and will happily don it at your request or if you are wearing one.

I am an experienced cat carer and would love to have your cats come and stay at my home.
I grew up with cats, have volunteered extensively at a local cat shelter ( and have been looking after other people's cats for 9+ 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 postponed payments and/or substantially reduced rates, especially for multiple cats.

Rich was fantastic with taking care of our cat while we were away for three weeks! He gave detailed updates on how our cat was doing, and although our cat was timid at first (being in a new place) he was very happy when we collected him. Would definitely recommend Rich!

I believe Rich is a genuine cat person, and that our Flick feels secure and happy with him
