|This Thread is a 'Sticky' thread acting as a central exchange for Cat Sitting|
I'm not sure how this would work or if anyone would be interested but here goes......
I have 2 cats and I live on the southern end of the ladder. I would be more than happy to cat sit for others in the area and would love it if someone could return the favour for me from time to time.
I am CRB checked and have looked after animals, and cats, all my life. I also have family members and friends who are vets and vet nurses.
Would there be some way of making a little local cat sitting group?
Any ideas would be gratefully received.
Hi just wondered if anyone is around Friday and Saturday to feed our cat? We're on Wightman Road by the Greek Church. I am happy to return the favour at another time and am DBS checked - I've exchanged cat feeding on here before but they're away at the minute.
Thank you - Sarah.
I could do the Friday for you but unfortunately not the Saturday as we go away first thing. Let me know.
Thank you Sam - that's very kind of you. I think I've found someone now and only have one set of spare keys so would be easier to have one person doing it. Thanks again. If you need anyone in the future let me know.
Just arrived in Harringay with my cat. I'm looking for a new vet for her. Any recomendations ? (One with Out Of Hours not miles away would be greatly appreciated !)
Thank you !
Welcome to the neighbourhood Lilly! We've used Village Vet for about 15 years now and they are excellent. We've got 5 rescue cats so we have had a lot of vet trips over the years!
We use the Winchmore Hill branch which is about a 20 min drive from the Ladder, but can be up to 30 mins in peak traffic. You can book consultations up to 8pm on weekdays. They are also open Sat and Sun.
They are 24hour - and that's themselves not another vet cover service as Village Vet have their own 24 hour clinic/hospital in Hampstead which many other vet practices use as their 24 hour cover. (I've only gone to Hampstead once as anything urgent has been dealt with at Winchmore Hill - as they are open such long hours and they have a vet with the animals overnight).
My favourite vet is Simon, but they are all excellent, such as Francesca and Jon, and the staff are very friendly, such as Sean on reception. I know my cats have the best care, the best medical treatment and I'm very fussy!
Village Vet also have other branches so if you want a closer branch - their Highbury branch is on Blackstock Rd N5 which is a 5 to 10 min drive from the Ladder. www.villagevet.co.uk
That's perfect ! They've got one branch where I work, and one where I live ! Thank you very much Justine !
Hi I'm in desperate need of a cat sitter from Thursday - Sunday if anyone is available please? Or failing that does anyone know of a cattery that will take him from tomorrow until Monday morning - I've checked out the one in Archway but he's not upto date with Vacc's although he is neutered. We're Wightman road by Hornsey station. We've been let down by a friend unfortunately.
I can pop in and feed them/stroke them. Im top of allison it would be easy enough for me to do so. not sure how to dm on here. cheers lizzie x (cat and home owner, shes 15 now so I must be doing something right)
Im happy to help out. I live at the top of allison and have a 15 year old tortie moggie, who I dote on. Happy to pop in for anyone nearby and feed a cat and stroke it for a while. Was CRB checked for a charity years ago.
Thank you both so much. Would be great if one of you could help I've sent connection requests. We've had a rough week and we're meant to be going to a festival - I don't think the gods want us to too though. My daughter broke her leg last week and our car got written off today parked on the side of the road!
You also have an offer from @GeorgeMacD on Twitter who can't sign in to his HoL AC. He suggested that you DM him on Twitter.
