I grew up on a farm in Shropshire and spent my youth caring for poultry, cats, dogs, lambs, calves, goldfish, budgies, ferrets, hedgehogs, frogs and a shrew- not all at the same time! When I moved to London to study Biomedical Sciences I continued my life with cats.
A variety of strays and resuce cats have let me live with them. I loved them all even the one with terrible habits (Pumpkin!) My cats have had a variety of illnesses over the years. I am used to caring for the poorly, timid cat and am particulary fond of the elderly cat. I fostered a lovely little family from the Celia Hammond Animal Trust in 2013 and kept Mum and one of the boys.

Here are a few recommendations from users of my service:
"Rosie is an excellent cat sitter ensuring cats and pets are happy and cared for. She is a trustworthy person who is not only looks after cats but ensures the house is locked and safe.I would highly recommend her."
Janey East Dulwich September 2009
"I truly cannot recommend Rosie highly enough. From her initial consultation with us, she put us at ease and immediately won over our bossy and independently minded cats. I felt entirely comfortable having her watch our two cats while we were away, and I was confident knowing that she was keeping an eye on our home. She even helped out with an extra, last minute visit when our return home was delayed due to the snow. When we finally made it back, our cats were well fed, relaxed, and very happy, and the house was in perfect condition. I've already recommended her to other people in the area, and we will be using her again soon. It's a big relief knowing that when we go away, things will be so expertly looked after in our absence."

"Hi Rosie Thanks for looking after Percy this weekend, he seemed very chilled when I got home!" see http://www.pdsa.org.uk/pet-health-advice/pdsa-pet-fit-club

"Rosie helps out regularly with our two cats and she has been a real life saver on a few occasions (last minute change of plans, plane delays, etc etc) - she goes the extra mile. Thoroughly recommend her."
Amy East Dulwich June 2011
"Hi Rosie, just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after (Busta and Monty) the boys - they looked very happy and contented when we got back. Thanks again"

A big thanks to the wonderful Rosie, who not only took great care of cat Bertie, but also found her mother, who had been missing for 2 months. She really went out of her way to help us. Many, many thanks.

Just a little message to say thanks again for being a perfect "new auntie" to Mathilda.
It was great to get home to see she was so contented, and to hear that you enjoyed taking care of her.

This is just to say thank you so much for looking after Lou and Zoe while we were away. Although pleased to see us back, it was clear they had been well looked after and neither of them showed any signs of anxiety - Zoe showed no signs of overgrooming last night which is reassuring.

Rosie recently looked after our tortoise and watered our plants for a week whilst we were away. It was the first time we had used a pet sitter, and we were a little apprehensive about giving a stranger a set of keys to our house. We needn't have worried, however, as Rosie put us at our ease. She is fully insured and CRB checked. Whilst we were away, she sent us pictures and text messages to update us on how Spartacus was doing. We would definitely use her again when we go away. The service she provides is excellent!

Rosie is lovely and very professional, looked after our two cats many times and makes sure they have lots of fuss. Janine 31.7.2017
