What is the booking process?
Following your initial enquiry, I will arrange a mutually convenient time to visit you and your pets. We can discuss any questions that you might have and it will give me chance to get to know their likes and dislikes. If you are happy to book in with me, I will complete the pet sitting forms. If possible you can give me a set of keys at the initial meeting or drop them off at my house at your convenience.
Can you visit my cat every other day whilst I am away?
No sorry, your cat is my priority, if they became unwell I would like to get them medical attention as soon as possible. For peace of mind I would need to visit them daily.
Can I check on my pets whilst I am away?
Yes of course, contact me any time and I will reply as soon as possible. If you require daily updates then I can send them via email or WhatsApp. I do not update any social media pages for security, if agreed by yourself I would love to put photos of your furry members on my own website and Facebook after the booking has finished.
What are your payment arrangements?
Full payment to be made no later than 2 days before you go away via bank transfer or cash.
What happens if my pet is sick?
I will take your furry friend to your nominated vet or the closest vet in an emergency and I will contact you immediately on the number you provided at the initial consultation.
Will you keep my keys secure?
Yes, your property security is paramount, your keys will be stored in my home safe whilst not in use and will never be stored together with your contact details.
Who provides the food for my pet while I am away?
All food, cat litter, bedding and necessary items are to be supplied by yourself. I will of course buy extra supplies if something ran out when you are away and you can reimburse me upon your return.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel your booking please let me know as soon as possible, I will refund any payments that you have made.
"Natalie from purrPAL was fantastic. I knew from our first initial appointment that my 3 cats would be in safe hands whilst we were away for 1 week. Can highly recommend and will definitely be using again in the future."
"Natalie is excellent, I would never use anyone else, she is extremely attentive and has a keen eye for detail. My cat is extremely anxious and requires particular care which Natalie reassured me was not a problem. I honestly couldn't recommend anyone higher if you are looking for a reliable, caring professional to look after your fur baby!."
"Thank you so much Natalie for the wonderful care you gave to Rupert whilst I was on holiday. He was so happy and comfortable with you and the daily updates were very reassuring. I don't know how you managed to brush him, he was loving it but never lets me do it! Rupert was so happy to be in his own home and your care was excellent, I will certainly call on you again and recommend you to my friends. Best Wishes. Lynn and Rupert x"
"I just wanted to thank you for doing such a good job of cat caring and house sitting . O Mally really seems to have enjoyed his time with you , so much so we were sure he was waiting on the stairs for you to appear to play with him after we got back! We will definitely be asking you again to mind him and will certainly recommend you. Thanks again"
