KAY9 Cat Sitting

ESTABLISHED 2015

A Professional, Friendly and Family Run Personalised Cat Sitting Service That Prioritises The Care and Happiness of your Cats and Small Animals

BESPOKE VISITING CENTRE

Kay9 Brearley Professional Dog Walking has evolved to include a bespoke Cat and Small Animal visiting service.
 
The service provided is at your home and is specifically tailored to meet your individual needs. A tailored care plan means your pets remain stress free in their home environment.
 
The business has evolved from a Husband and Wife team to include our new member, Ann Bennett who will specialise in providing Cat and Small Animal Care. Ann and her husband Tim encouraged us to evolve into cat sitting after we stepped in at short notice to look after their cats a couple of years ago. Now that Ann has retired we are really pleased to welcome her onto the team. We can also provide services giving the appearance that your home is still occupied whilst you are away. This can include altering lighting, collecting post, putting out bins or anything else that gives your home the lived in look.
 
Make sure your Cats and Small Animals daily routine is maintained when you’re out or away with Kay9 Cat Sitting.

Kay Brearley

I have owned dogs for almost 40 years and have experience of dealing with a variety of breeds ranging from Yorkshire Terrier to Great Dane. I have previously owned Cats which include Burmese and Cross Breads. I have also bred Birds, ranging from Dusky Lories to Amazon Parrots and I have kept both Marine and Tropical Fish. I currently jointly own two English Cocker Spaniels with my husband Lee, and one working Cocker Spaniel.

Following my retirement I have embarked upon a complete change of career direction which has been influenced by my passion for dogs and for this reason I set up Kay9Brearley Professional Dog Walking in June 2015.

In preparation for setting up the business, I studied for and obtained two Diplomas (with Distinction) in Professional Dog Walking and Canine Care and First Aid. I further qualified in May 2016 as an Advanced Canine First Aider with ‘1st Aiders Training’ at a course held in Shrewsbury. I am now studying a further Diploma in Solving Dog Behaviour Problems.

I am a member of the International Society of Animal Professionals, and I Fully Insured and Security (DBS) Cleared. I am also a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) providing reassurance to customers that their dogs will be safe in transit.

At our initial meeting we will ask that you provide us with your Vets’ details and the location of a carriage system should we need it.

Safeguarding, Home Security and Key Holding

You are allocated an individual customer number which is unique to you. Your key is labelled with this number so it cannot be identified to you or your property. It is kept in a locked cabinet in an alarmed premises and away from your personal information. Should your key be lost or stolen we will inform you immediately.

We are conscious that whilst you are away your house may appear to be vacant. Therefore, at no extra cost we offer the service of opening and closing curtains, switching on and off lights, retrieving post and putting out and pulling in wheelie bins. This gives your home the appearance of being occupied and not diverting from your usual routine.

Access to your property will be discussed and options provided for which there is a procedure in place at the time of our initial meeting.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

We require 24 hours’ notice of cancellation. There is no charge if a booking is cancelled within this time frame. If this notice is not given you will be charged as if the walk had taken place (except in an emergency).

Testimonials

Kay and Lee have been coming to see to our Cat for over a year when we go away once a month. They feed him, clean his litter tray, spend half an hour with him giving him love and fuss. Kay offers an excellent service at an excellent price and I never feel concerned about leaving our Cat, I know he will be well looked after.

I would highly recommend Kay and Lee.

Testimonials

Kay and Lee have looked after my three cats twice a day whilst I am away for nearly two years now.

The service they provide is professional, exceptional and personal. I now have three chilled out cats who look forward to fuss and attention whilst I am away. Kay and Lee provide amusing daily written anecdotes about the cats antics!

I have no hesitation in recommending Kay9 Cat Sitting.

 

Susan

Testimonials

Kay and Lee have been looking after our house cat for us for a few years now.

When we get back from our trips we have a diary of how he has been and what they have done for him and it is so nice to know that Oscar is in good hands while we go away.

They will also send photos of him having fuss and cuddles which is such a nice little extra!

We know Oscar is well looked after every time and would highly recommend Kay and Lee for anyone who needs cat visits.

Kay and Lee have been fantastic in helping with my three cats, looking after them when I have been away and more recently short notice care after one had been injured.

I have the reassurance that the cats and the house are being well looked after and I always recieve updates and messages to keep me informed.

I would certainly recommend their cat care services to other cat owners.

Nicky

Testimonials

We were looking for someone to look after our much loved cat Florence when we went away and struck gold when we found Kay and Ann.

They provided a professional service and we went on holiday assured that Florence was in safe hands. Ann was brilliant. We had regular contact and updates and even FaceTime whilst we were away! Florence was happy and relaxed upon our return.

Ann is extremely conscientious and we would have no hesitation in recommending her or Kay.

Thanks so much to Ann for looking after Kora, Kai & Kovu for the last two weeks.

The services she has provided has been exceptional with not only a pet feeding service but quality time spent with the cats making sure they have their regular fuss and treats within their home environment. We have regular WhatsApp updates so we can see how content they have been.

Not only this but we have peace of mind that our house is being looked after with bins being put out, curtains closed etc. etc.

Would highly recommend your cat sitting services to anyone whether it be for an overnight visit or extended holiday. Will certainly use again.
