To take my cat sitting business from a fee paying online booking platform to an independent small business.

1598369989_img_20200130_164119_279.jpgI worked as a nurse for 27 years and now work for a family support charity. I needed to make a little extra money and so I set up a profile on a cat sitting platform. I now have 25 regular customers who are all very happy with the service I provide. The cat sitting platform charges me 17% of my income and I would like to branch out on my own. I would like to develop my own website and then look at marketing on social media. Some of my clients already book with me directly so I am used to managing this. I am taking a cat behaviour course so that I can also offer this to my clients. I would like to grow the business sufficiently that, when I retire, it could be a regular source of income for me.

Here are some of the kind words of my clients : 

'Michele proves herself to be the most reliable and flexible of cat lovers time and time again. We are lucky to have her as a firm favourite of our four fluffballs.'

'Friendly and reliable. Cats were happy and we got pictures every morning. Would definitely recommend.'

'I always come home to a happy and relaxed Tilly when Michele takes care of her. She is my catsitter of choice and I highly recommend her.'

'Michele was great. Not having used a cat sitting service before we weren't sure what to expect. She totally put our family at ease - we could just relax and enjoy our holiday. She sent photos which was fab. Highly recommended! Big thumbs up from us and most importantly Suki our kitty.'
