LAUNCH: No More Lonely Moggies with Cat in a Flat Pet Sitting Service

Cat in a Flat Cat Sitting

Does the festive season fill your cat with dread? While you’re off swigging egg nog and scoffing down mince pies, your moggy is more like Kevin McCallister – Home Alone. But not this year – Cat in a Flat, London’s largest cat sitting community is going nation wide, so pussies up and down the country will shacked up with adoring cat sitters while their owners are away.

Already the largest cat sitting community in the capital, Cat in a Flat connects cat lovers with feline friends, offering extra income in return for tummy rubs and playtime, and gives cat owners peace of mind that the needs of their furry boss are being met while they are away.

Cat in a Flat was founded by Julie Barnes and Kathrin Burckhardt. The pair came up with the idea when discussing their respective cat-related quandaries. Burckhardt is a long time cat lover – but her husband is allergic – whilst Barnes has a troublesome tomcat who needs an experienced handler to tend to his needs.

Cat in a Flat interviews its prospective sitters and has just launched a fist-of-its-kind “pay-as-you-go” insurance cover. Lloyd’s Insurance Brokers now covers every single cat sitter and cat who is booked and paid for through the Cat in a Flat system.
