Cat sitting in

Get in touch

Welcome to Happy Hounds and Cooler Cats cat sitting service covering Leytonstone and the surrounding areas. We have been in operation since 1999 and our experienced team of pet carer would love to come and visit your cat(s) or other small pets while you are away. In addition to providing catsitting in Leytonstone, we also cover Wanstead, Leyton, Snaresbrook, Forest gate, Walthamstow, Woodford, Woodford Green and Chingford.

Cat sitting in Leytonstone

Our cat sitting in Leytonstone service means that instead of taking your cats or other small animals to a cattery or kennels we can come and visit them in their own home. Cat’s in particular are very territorial and can find it highly disrupting to be removed from their own surroundings, so cat sitting means they will be much happier and relaxed while you are away.

When we meet you we will discuss your animals feeding regime and try and keep to their usual routine as much as possible. In addition our experienced pet carers can provide basic medication as required and will of course spend some time petting and playing with your pet should they be willing.

We can visit either once or twice a day depending on your cat’s requirements. Generally one visit a day is fine unless your pet needs medication or a little extra attention

Added benefits

In addition to ensuring your cat is well looked after, we can also keep a check on your home while your away as well. This can include basic plant watering, bringing in the post and in the winter turning on the heating to make sure pipes don’t freeze. We can also turn lights on and off and open and close curtains to make your house look lived in, giving you piece of mind. We will also make sure there is fresh milk waiting for you when you return home.

What about my other pets?

In our experience our pet sitting service is not really suitable for dogs as they really miss the company of people. So if you need your dog to be cared for we recommend our dog boarding service where your dog will stay with one of our boarders in a home from home environment. Alternatively if you have several animals you may want to consider our house sitting service where one of our pet carers will stay at your home while you are away giving you total piece of mind.

The commissioning of the Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats by the Client to carry out Pet Sitting, house sitting, Home Boarding or Pet Visiting assignments, whether verbally or in writing constitutes acceptance of our Terms  and Conditions.

Please see our general terms and conditions


Every reasonable measure is taken to ensure the integrity, probity, suitability and competence of the sitters. Appropriate vetting and police checks are carried out and ensures the sitter's insurance is up to date.

Where sitters are required to drive a Clients car, responsibility for the provision of appropriate insurance cover rests with the Client.

It is agreed that it is the Clients responsibility to adequately insure the property and its contents and any pets with an insurance company of good repute, and that such insurance shall continue for the duration of this agreement. You must ensure that your household insurer has extended their policy to cover losses incurred whilst there is a house-sitter present. Please note that Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats Ltd will accept no liability for any damage caused by your house or pets.

All locks, security and protective measures are put in operation whenever the property is left unattended or overnight.


Where exceptional work or non standard skills and experience are involved e.g. the care of horses, farm animals, aviaries, large gardens, green houses, indoor plant collections, and swimming pools etc, charges will be made according to the level of skill required. Approximate guides will be provided by telephone and detailed quotations. All extra work must be approved by the pet sitter.

No payments are made directly to the pet sitter.

In place of leaving supplies of food for the sitter, an impractical option, a daily subsistence allowance is paid directly to the sitter from your payment to Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats Ltd.

A sitter may wish to have the companionship of their partner / spouse during an assignment. This incurs the Client no additional expense. The companion / spouse will have passed the Company’s vetting programme and is also fully covered by the sitter's insurance.
