Cat in a Flat is a trusted cat-sitting community created by cat lovers for cat lovers.
We know how painful it can be finding a perfect sitter for your cat (sorry, your baby). You're running out of thank-you gifts for friends and neighbours, but you really want someone you can trust. That's why we've created this community - matching cat owners with local, trusted cat-loving sitters. After all, who better to have look after your furry friends than someone who truly loves and understands them?
Our mission is to help cats stay in the comfort of their own homes by connecting cat owners with trusted, local, cat-loving sitters
Self Funded. Self Motivated.
Cat in a Flat is a project set up by Julie Barnes and Kathrin Burckhardt.
Being cat owners ourselves, we always found it difficult to go on holiday and leave our cats behind (unlike dogs, you can’t really take them with you). So we set about creating a network where true cat lovers would look after our cats, giving us peace of mind that they are being fed, played with and getting plenty of belly-rubbing/sock-chasing/window-staring/box-sitting...
Besides being proud parents of Yuki, Yumi and Casper, we are also digital experts and have been working in the digital industry for around 15 years.
Combining our passion for cats and creating digital platforms, we want to build a community based network that’s for all cat lovers whether they’re an owner, sitter or just love cats, everyone is welcome.
