About Carmel

*Update: Unfortunately I cannot take further requests during the period 21st-30th December as I am already fully booked.

Hi there, I'm Carmel and I'm currently a psychology undergraduate. I have a passion for animal care and I must admit cats have a very special place in my heart!

I have been looking after cats for 6 years now and have 3 lovely cats myself. I am a regular cat sitter on Cat in a Flat so I have experience with all types of cats. I find it fascinating how intricate cats' personalities are and I would be honoured to get to know your cat :)

I have experience with feral cats, taking one in myself over a decade ago and if there is one thing I have learned from that experience it is the power of patience!

Having said that, I also absolutely love dogs and would be happy to take your dog out on walks :)

I also have a lot of experience taking care of animals having worked on an animal sanctuary for 8 weeks. Additionally, I have completed a veterinary assistance course.

I know how stressful it can be when going away on holidays and leaving the kitties at home, and my role is to make sure that they are well looked after and cared for.

My visits would include feeding, cleaning, playing with them, and of course having some cuddles! Each cat has their own needs so I would accommodate to what best suits them. Usually I aim to stay with your cat(s) for at least 30 minutes, but often I stay a little longer so they have some company. If they like to sit on my lap then I will usually bring a book with me and have a lovely relaxing time with them. Due to being a student, I often have free time and therefore can easily fit in morning and evening visits

I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies and would be more than happy to have a meet and greet beforehand. Due to my volunteering work, I have been Garda Vetted recently so you can feel extra safe :)

Had Carmel mind Bella again and was super happy as before! So glad to have found a reliable cat minder that I can reach out to when I travel, thanks Carmel!

Cant thank Carmel enough for her lovely care of my cat Bella. I could tell she had a lot of experience with cats from our first meet & greet and how Bella reacted to her. She was just brilliant at sending me cute video updates and I felt very safe knowing I had a happy cat while I was away. She was always very fast to respond to messages and super reliable. I already have her booked in again, thanks again Carmel!!

I worked for 8 weeks on an animal sanctuary for rescued farmed animals and in one of the pictures you can see me with one of the resident pigs who loved belly rubs! I mostly have experience with cats, having minded them for over 5 years now. I would be more than happy to provide references upon request.
