Just the two of us

Jean and I both grew up with cats, we've always adored these independent, funny, curious and at times elusive creatures. They've brought much joy to our hearts and smiles on our faces.

Where did the idea of cat sitting come from?

Well, like everyone else, we love holidays. Having two kitties of our own, we too need someone to look after them while we’re away. In the past we’ve found that it can be quite difficult to locate someone on the internet who does cat minding professionally, someone with comprehensive info on their website and who are available at short notice.


We saw an opportunity to start up our own cat sitting service and decided to help out other cat lovers, initially across Sydney’s Inner West, and now in Wollongong and surrounding suburbs.


We’ve found cat sitting to be a really rewarding experience that compliments our lifestyles. Jean is a personal trainer at Innervate Health and Fitness and I’m a freelance web/graphic designer trading as Arcus Designs

What makes us different from any other cat minding service in Wollongong?

We are proud of the long lasting relationships we build with our customers and their kitties. Over the last 7 years we’ve established a large base of returning customers and we were receiving over 300 bookings each year in Sydney. This tells us that we must be doing something right!


At the end of November 2017, we’ve relocated to Wollongong and we are now servicing the Northern Illawarra region. Find out what our former Sydney customers have to say about us


During your initial consultation, you’ll meet us in person. We do not subcontract our bookings, so it’s either Jean or I who will be in your home caring for your furry loved ones.


We’re not here to make a quick profit and move on; we listen to you and treat your cat as if they were of our own. In our experience, what counts the most is clear communications, availability and a high “care factor”!
