About me, Dawn

Hi there, I have lived with and been surrounded by cats and dogs all my life including fish and rabbits when I was a child! I am an avid animal lover and will look after your pets like they are my own.  I live in Twickenham with my husband and 2 gorgeous rescue dogs  

Last year was the first time without a cat, my gorgeous black cat Delphi sadly passed away at the ripe old age of 17, and we miss her greatly.

After we lost Delphi I decided to foster cats and helped the charity Guardian Angels animal support. This was so rewarding but sadly had to stop due to my Collie/shepherd cross developing a tumour on her heart and so not wanting her to become at all stressed with new cats coming and going I decided to stop fostering for the time being and set up a cat sitting agency to get my cat fix.

Et voila The Great Catsby Pet Sitting Service.  You can find out more about my pet sitting services here.

I am a Montessori teacher by trade and currently teach in a Montessori pre-school as a Special needs teacher a few hours a week, I also treat dogs with Canine Bowen Technique as and when asked.  Visit www.riversidebowen.co.uk and the tab Paws for Bowen to find out more.

I have plenty of spare time to look after cats during the day and am very flexible.  I am not part of a chain of cat sitters and so can give a very personal and taylor made service for you and your fluffpots, I feel this could be my purrfect job!
