Professional Cat Sitter

Meet Rosie, Professional cat sitter

Rosie at Cat Sitter Cairns is passionate about cats and will ensure your cat is happy and loved in the comfort of its own home. While you are away, Rosie will feed your cat, supply your cat with fresh water, clean the kitty litter, and give your cat lots of affection and playtime.

Due to concern for wildlife and the safety of your kitty, Rosie cares for indoor cats rather than cats that are left to roam outdoors while you are away.

Pet-sitting services have many advantages

  • Your cat will not be exposed to the illnesses and parasites of other cats.
  • "Travel trauma" to and from your cat's accommodation is avoided.
  • You pets can continue with their regular routine in the familiarity of their own home and do not need to adapt to a new environment, which can be stressful.
  • You do not inconvenience neighbours, friends or family members.
Rosie treated our cats like
they were her own while our family were away.

Daniel & Tracey, Cairns

My fiancè and I had planned to go away for month and had no steady way of keeping our kitties fed - putting them in a cattery wasn't an option for us. From the first time Rosie came and met with us and the cats we knew through the cat's reaction that she was definitely the right fit, they absolutely loved her - even our scaredy cat! Throughout our trip Rosie proved herself to be an amazing person who went above and beyond looking out for our fur babies. She isn't like most sitters who come and feed and then leave, she actively spends time with them and it was great knowing the cats wouldn't be lonely. Rosie's love for cats is evident in every interaction she had with our babies. I have no hesitation recommending Rosie to anyone.

I have used Rosie’s services a few times now and every time I returned home to a happy, calm and healthy cat. It feels like I just popped out for a few hours. There is no anxiety or clinginess, which I have observed in Isis after I would leave her with somebody else. She is just happy to see me home. I also love the fact that Rosie sends pictures on my kitty while I’m away. I cannot speak highly enough of Rosie’s services and will continue to use them.

Gus and Sue, Bentley Park

We left the country for over two weeks and Rosie did a fantastic job looking after our two cats, numerous birds, fish, plants and house. I am sure all our animals were so much happier to stay in familiar surroundings. We have no hesitation in recommending Rosie to anyone looking for someone reliable and who genuinely loves animals.

Dianne, Woree

Rosie is a true cat lover. My cat is very old and Rosie looked after her as if she was her own. It's so much nicer to be able to have your pet cared for in their own home while you're away. Thanks!

Belinda, Cairns

Rosie and my cat Roxy have been friends for three years now. I often go away for work and Rosie looks after my cranky, black, 13 year old feline friend. I know my cat will get lots of cuddles and play time with Rosie who always sends me a text update. I would hands down recommend Rosie over a cattery (and have).

Rosie has looked after Pierre and Harlow many times. She is extremely reliable and always sends photos and updates on the cats.

Thanks for looking after us Rosie whilst Mum and Dad were away. Love Oscar and Little Miss Purrrrrrfect.

We would highly recommend Rosie the cat whisperer as a cat sitter 20 out of 10.

Wendy, Westcourt

Thank you so much for looking after our cats while I was away in Sydney. Normally they are pretty spoilt but I didn't need to worry - they were in good hands! Your regular text messages let me know they were doing just fine, and when I walked in the front door it felt as if I had only been gone for a few hours. I would thoroughly recommend your services to anyone. Thanks again!

Sandy, Manunda

From someone who adores their cats, putting their care into the hands of a stranger was a daunting prospect. However, once I spoke with Rosie, and met her, I knew I could relax knowing my pets were in great hands. I sincerely have no hesitation in recommending her services. She is warm, helpful, and above everything she is 100% reliable! Rosie, you are an angel!

We had to go away suddenly for two weeks and didn't want to put our much-loved Ester into a cage in a cattery. We found Rosie online and after chatting with her we knew she was the right person to look after Ester.

It was great to have that confidence that Rosie was looking after our fur-child as well as we did while we were away and we'd highly recommend her to everyone. Thanks again Rosie; Ester says hi!

Jann, Redlynch Valley

Rosie recently looked after our two cats Jeff & Massey while we were in Melbourne. I knew we made a good choice as soon as we met Rosie. She is a lovely person and really loves animals.

Rosie kept in touch while we were away and took wonderful care of our cats. They were very spoilt with lots of cuddles!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Rosie and will definitely use her again next time we are going away.

Camilla, Bentley Park

I felt confident that the cats would be well looked after and they were so happy and content when I returned, so I'm really glad I used Rosie instead of putting them in a cattery.

Rosie did a great job, and she was also very conscious of keeping the house secure while we weren't there.

I would recommend her to anyone and will be definitely asking her to help out again next time we go away.

I would highly recommend Catsitters Cairns. Rosie did a great job looking after our cat Hamish. We usually go away 2-3 times a year and felt that we had asked our neighbours too many times. We had also previously boarded our cat and found it expensive, dropping off and picking up to be a hassle and on the last occasion Hamish caught cat flu.

Catsitter Cairns has turned out to be perfect service for us, we found it convenient, cost effective and much less traumatic for Hamish. It was also a nice touch that Rosie emailed us a photo of Hamish while we were away letting us know that he was ok.

Sue, Manoora

I would like to thank you very much for looking after Felix for two weeks when we were away. It was lovely you kept us in touch with what was happening at home which made our holiday much more enjoyable. I think you might have spoilt Felix while we were away as when we got home he was seeking attention and he looked very healthy.

On our next holidays I feel we can go away at anytime without worrying whether Felix is OK. Cannot thank you enough.

Kellie, Kamerunga

Rosie is by far the best cat sitter I have found, she truly loves all animals and I was touched by the rescue stories she told me about stray cats.

I was so touched when she came into my work when I returned to give me the keys and she had taken some photos of Mishka for me.

Definitely recommend Rosie to anyone needing a cat sitter.

Agnes, Cairns

Thank you so much for the love, care and kindness to our furry friends, Rosie. You always go above and beyond for those who need it; from saving lives, giving back homes and being a cat-sitter friend.

Keep on purring ..😻

I would highly recommend Rosie to take care of your pet.
She is trustworthy, reliable and lovers of animals.
