Cat-themed face mask ready to go!

Since the covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland in March 2020, we have all (humans & cats!) been living under very stressful conditions. We want to reassure you that Cat Sitter At Home is still open for business and that we are following the government guidance in terms of health & safety in the workplace. For us, your home is our workplace and we want to protect both your family and our cat sitters during this pandemic, while still being here for your kitties.

If you are worried about any aspect of the cat sitting process, or if your family has any particular health requirements while the covid-19 pandemic continues, please get in touch with us for a chat and we will come up with a solution that suits everyone.

The health and welfare of our human and kitty clients, and our cat sitters, are the most important things to us right now so please stay safe everyone and don’t be afraid to get in touch with any queries x

RTÉ ‘Nationwide’ Appearance for National Women’s Enterprise Day 2019

Jackie appeared on RTÉ’s ‘Nationwide’ programme on Wednesday 16th October 2019 for National Women’s Enterprise Day 2019.  Jackie was invited to take part in the programme after winning the ILDN Dublin Regional Enterprise Award 2018 (see post below!) and was very proud to be able to tell her background story and how her life led her to set up her own business, Cat Sitter At Home. Filming also included some cat sitting visits and we were delighted to be able to show off some of our gorgeous furry clients! Watch the programme back here:

FINALIST – ILDN National Enterprise Awards 2019

The ILDN National Enterprise Awards 2019 awards ceremony took place in Tullamore last month. We are very proud of Jackie for being a Finalist and representing Cat Sitter At Home amongst such fantastic start-ups from around the country! Although we didn’t win, we were honoured to be nominated following on from our win at the Dublin ILDN Enterprise Awards 2018 and a great night was had by all!

Happy Christmas from Cat Sitter At Home!

2018 has been an amazing year for us here at CSAH and as we get ready for the busy Christmas season, we’re looking forward to lots of kitty cuddles from our existing and new clients! We were very proud to win the Dublin Regional Enterprise Award 2018, in September this year. When we set up Cat Sitter At Home we had no idea whether or not it would be a success, so it means a lot to us to get this kind of recognition from the business community. We also attended a number of pet fairs this year and got to chat to lots of cat lovers & meet some lovely new clients : ) Jackie really enjoyed giving a talk on TNR at the second Dublin Cat Fair in November too, and spending more time with people who love and ‘get’ cats as much as we do!

As many of you are heading away for the Christmas holidays, we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from all of us (humans and furbabies!) in Cat Sitter At Home! Thank you for your support throughout 2018 and we look forward to minding your furbabies in the New Year : ) Best wishes, Claire & Jackie xx

Cat Sitters On Holiday!

We went to Budapest for a few days to see the Christmas markets and ended up hanging out with kitties in the local cat café (! Such a lovely place, very relaxing to spend time with the furbabies. We wanted to share some photos to show the nice catification ideas, which might inspire some of you who want to catify your own home! Get in touch with us for more catification advice : )
