The Perfect Cat Sitter

42, Digital Marketing Consultant

Trilingual if meowing is considered an official language.

A 5-year experience with a multi-cat house. I lived with 5 cats at home, fed them, cleaned after them, and petted them.

I owned and managed a cat boarding/hotel for up to 14 cats for a year. I had to shut down the cat hotel because of the Coronavirus lockdown. I am a cat rescuer as well.

Being obsessed with cats, I run a facebook group for cat lovers and I started my own website/blog for cat lovers in the UK and US.

My recent (2020-2022) confirmed house sitting jobs are all in the UK, from coast to coast.

I am an approved cat sitter on the UK House Sitters website.

Cat sitting in the US started in March 2022:
- Washington DC (March-April 2022)
- Newton MA (April 2022)
- Washington DC again (May 2022)

Taleb was my 1st experience with House Sitters. I chose him based on the quality of his past reviews, which almost sounded too good to be true, but much to my (and my kitties') delight, they're not! He's wonderful! He was a very conscientious sitter who made sure we had time to visit in person before I left and ensure he understood care instructions. Taleb is a kind soul and I felt very comfortable leaving my home and kitties in his care. One of my cats has a chronic illness, and he was ... MORE

Taleb is great! A++ He sent us lots of pictures & updates, and kept the house very clean. It's clear that he loves cats and ours - who are typically very shy - opened up to him and loved all of the attention! If you get the chance to have Taleb house sit for you, do it! You will be very satisfied and have very happy kitties. Thanks again Taleb!
ETHAN ( New York, Aug 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Taleb took fantastic care of my menagerie! He was very prompt with his communication and sent lots of photos and updates of my cats and kittens while I was away. He took great care of my fur family and the house was in good shape when I returned. I was able to have a worry-free vacation because of him. I would definitely have Taleb house sit again in the future!
SUSAN ( Pennsylvania, Aug 2022 - 1 week)
We loved having Taleb take care of our cat and house while we were on vacation. He was very diligent about making sure he understood everything about the house and our cat. He really loves cats and we knew he would be in good hands with Taleb. He sent pictures everyday and was also great about communicating before the sit. We would definitely have him back again.
SARAH ( Illinois, Jul 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Taleb was above and beyond! From our very first conversation I felt so comfortable leaving everyone in his care. And he gave such wonderful updates on all while I was away. I came back to 4 very happy cats and everything tip top - would happily have Taleb housesit again.
ABBY ( New York, May 2022 - 1 week)
Taleb is the perfect house sitter, and cat whisperer. He gave so much attention to our cats, and took great care of our house. He was also in communication with us daily, and kept us updated on our cats. Our cat who is usually the shy one took to Taleb and was so happy with the attention and doting Taleb did. We felt so safe knowing Taleb was there with them, and taking care of our home. He even arranged his travel so we could have some time in person at the end of his visit, and I so enjoyed ... MORE
SHARON ( Massachusetts, Apr 2022 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Taleb was a true cat lover which was immediately obvious to Scruffi and Dandy. Scruffi spent most of his time sitting with/on Taleb. Dandy, who is very shy with strangers, shared the bedroom and head bumped Taleb. All instructions were carried out as requested including the medication rounds and we received frequent updates from Taleb. He was an absolute pleasure to have in our home and put us at total ease, allowing us to have a relaxed and stress free break. We would highly recommend Taleb ... MORE
BRENDA (Elderslie Scotland, Mar 2022 - 5 days) From House Sitters UK
Taleb is a superb house and pet sitter. He took very good care of our home and left everything neat and clean upon his departure, He provided excellent care for our cats. The only warning I will provide is your pets may miss Taleb more than they missed you once he departs, LOL. Taleb communicates well, and it was easy to coordinate with him from afar. I give the highest recommendation possible for Taleb and will welcome him back again and again. Our cats will too!
JOHN (Washington District of Columbia, Jan 2022 - 1 month 2 days)
Taleb is a great cat, hamster and house sitter. From the beginning, we could tell how dedicated he was. He is very knowledgeable where animals are. Very friendly, sociable, always updated us whilst away and very caring. On return, the house was clean. I hope in the future, Taleb will house and pet sit for us again. Thank you so much for looking after our 6 cats and 1 hamster at a high standard.
THERESA (Leicester England, Jul 2021 - 10 days) From House Sitters UK
Taleb was easy to communicate with throughout. He cared for our cat very well - perhaps even better than we do! You can tell he really loves cats which meant we felt very comfortable to have him in our home. We came back to a clean home too which is always nice! We'd definitely recommend Taleb to friends/family.
LUCY (Reading England, Oct 2020 - 3 days) From House Sitters UK
Taleb was a sociable sitter and very communicative both before and during the sit. He left the house clean & tidy. House sitters should be aware that Taleb uses public transport, and may need assistance getting to the sit. I am happy to recommend Taleb to others.
RHIANNON (Kidderminster England, Sep 2020 - 4 days) From House Sitters UK
Taleb is the perfect housesitter. We found him to be totally reliable. He has a genuine love of cats which they sense and respond to with affection in return. We highly recommend Taleb and hope to meet up with him again in the future.
LORAINE (Neyland Wales, Sep 2020 - 1 week 3 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating Taleb is a lovely man who really took a lot of care of our cats and house while we were away. He sent regular short messages and films of the cats, whom he totally charmed. He stayed over for a day either side of our holiday, so we got to know him a little. He's very quiet and respectful but has a great curiosity for life. We thoroughly recommend him as a trustworthy and competent house and cat sitter.
SIMON (LONDON England, Aug 2020 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters UK
Taleb was an excellent cat sitter. Good communication throughout. I felt very comfortable and confident that he would love and care for my cats and home while I was away. I have already booked him again, which speaks for itself.
CLAIRE (Icklesham England, Jul 2020 - July 6-14) From House Sitters UK

Whisky looked very well on my return � Taleb was the best and I hope to remain friends with him
