South East Cheshire Cat Sitting

 
 

Hello to you and your cats!

We are Catherine and Martin Hazlewood and we provide a brilliant cat sitting service so that all the cats in our area can stay at home in their familiar home surroundings instead of being forcibly taken away to a cattery.

Our service covers South East Cheshire including Sandbach, Crewe, Nantwich, Congleton, Audlem, Wistaston, Holmes Chapel, Alsager, Kidsgrove, Mow Cop, Audley, Biddulph, Weston and Shavington.

Why your cats will absolutely love our service!

We all know it can be unsettling for us humans to find ourselves in a strange environment surrounded by unfamiliar people.  For cats and kittens, that feeling of anxiousness is amplified many times, as they are so very sensitive to sounds and smells which cause them high levels of stress and anxiety.  Check out our article Why Cats Hate Catteries.

Our very convenient service means that your cherished cats and kittens can stay in their own familiar home environment and routine, giving them the security and comfort they rightly deserve and ensuring their happiness whilst you are away.  Whether it’s a long-awaited holiday, regular business trips, or perhaps even a stay in hospital, you can rest assured that your cat is receiving the best care and attention at home.  Bookings can be for any period from one day upwards.

The health and welfare of cats in our care is always our primary concern.  By choosing us, you will enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your cats will be looked after as if they were our own.  Depending on their age and preferences, this could be laptime or playtime, or simply just spending some time in their company to ensure they are relaxed and content.  We will arrange to meet you before you go so that you can introduce us to your cat, run through their routines, their favourite toys and their hiding places, and also collect a key, etc. 

When you’re away, we will:

  • Visit as often as you need us to – most cats just need the one visit a day, but sometimes due to medical conditions, we may need to visit more often.
  • Give medication as required, including insulin injections (Louis our cat was diabetic for five years and required twice daily insulin injections).
  • Put down fresh food and water in clean bowls.
  • Clean out and replenish litter trays. 
  • Collect post, put bins in/out, water plants and keep a general eye on your house and garden.
  • Email or message you to let you know all is well.
  • Care for other low maintenance small pets including feeding goldfish.

Whilst you’re away, if you wish to extend your break then all you need to do is simply text or email and we will be happy to make more visits.  (Additional visits can be paid for after your return).

About us

We live in Haslington in Cheshire and we have shared our lives with cats for as long as we can remember! 

The RSPCA Stapeley Grange Re-Homing Cattery is located not very far away from us in the Nantwich area - so if you are in looking for a cat (or cats), there are cats and kittens there desperately in need of their “forever” homes.  How much love do you have to share?

We are also very fortunate to be located a short driving distance from the Nantwich Veterinary Hospital which offers 24-hour emergency care along with state-of-the-art facilities.

The last year or two has seen many changes to our feline family, losing our beloved Louis (after 18 years) and Harvey (after just a year).  But now we share our lives with Maisie, and our recent additions Gail and her two kittens Josh and Sam.  They’re all settling in well and the boys are certainly keeping us busy.  Who needs “Planet Earth” when you have two kittens to watch!

Catherine worked for the National Trust for fourteen years, working at many fabulous places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  But the last few years as a Project Manager has meant long drives across the country and being away from home every week.  Martin took medical retirement in 2015 and after several successful joint replacement operations, wanted to find a job which included meeting people and getting out and about.  We realised that we needed a change in direction so we could work together and pursue our passion of working with animals. 

Over recent years we have ourselves experienced the convenience and benefits of the Home Loving Cats cat sitting service for our own cats who were cared for by Paul and Yolanda, and so it felt very “right” and appropriate for us to join Home Loving Cats ourselves (taking over Paul and Yolanda's business when the opportunity arose).

We are trustworthy, mature and reliable people of impeccable character who will treat your home with care and upmost professionalism.  We both hold a basic disclosure (police check) and public liability insurance.
