After such a long time that people have not been able to take their holidays or breaks away, it seems like everyone is going away at the same time! It's great to see things might be starting to return to a new normal, but the result is that the service is nearly fully booked (which means we're starting up at 5am and finishing at 7pm, with a hamburger in the middle!) I'm sorry that we have had to put in the following restrictions to allow us to cope with the current demand.
Until the current demand has passed and things quite down again, we will be updating this page every evening if there are any cancellations or changes in current bookings.
Existing Key Safe Customers will always be given priority, but we can't fit any more visits in on the following days. Please call us to see if any cancellations have freed up space.
Sunday 3rd October - Limited space for Mornings and Fully booked for Afternoon visits
Monday 1st November - Fully booked
Saturday 13th November - Fully booked
Wednesday 8th December - Fully booked
Christmas Eve - Limited space for Mornings (not working in the afternoon)

Monday 27th December - Limited space for Mornings

This applies to any Customer who has used the service before. For bookings before 1st October, please call us to see if a Key Safe Customer has cancelled.
This applies to any New Customer who is not on our books. I'm very sorry, but I hope you will try us again next time.
Purrfect Sitters pledge to provide a quality and trusted service to anyone requiring a pet sitter in the Leeds area for holidays or weekends away. We will come to see you in advance to discuss your individual requirements and meet your animal family, so you can judge how they get on with us. Next, we will visit before you go away to pick up a key and either post the key once finished, return the key in person, or keep the key in a secure safe for next time you're away (or if you ever get locked out!)
As you can see from our website, we have our own animal family who consist of cats, birds, fish, rabbits and hamsters. We also don't forget wild animals that occasionally need a helping hand, ranging from robins to hedgehogs! :)
We are fully insured to visit your home, with your permission, and we have been DBS checked.
We hope you will hire us to look after your animal family, in their own home, next time you go away.
Please have a read through the reviews from our customers if you have any concerns regarding the service we offer.
Best wishes, Yvonne

Key Safe Customers are customers for who we already have a copy of their key before a booking is made and wants the key returned to our secure key safe at the end of the booked service.
Any customer can become a Key Safe Customer, but they will be charged the standard customer prices for their first booking (as we will still need to collect the key and perform an initial visit for new customers) but these customers will start benefiting from their second booking. If a customer decides to stop being a Key Safe Customer for any reason, we will either post the key back on the last day of service, or at a suitable time if there is no active booking.
The benefits of becoming a Key Safe Customer are:
We offer a bespoke service which intends to look after your animal family, in the same manner as they are accustomed when you are home. Our service is also discrete and non-branded so as not to advertise your absence to those who do not already know you are away. As part of the service we can open and close curtains to help deter burglars while you're away. Please let us know what individual requirements you have.
* We are not able to guarantee specific times for giving medication.
Giving food, fresh water and treats so they know they have not been abandoned
Cleaning litter tray and cages. Also cleaning up any accidents
Giving medication, including flee treatment, tablets or injections
Turning lights on and off as needed, opening and closing curtains each visit to help deter burglars
We can keep your key so we're ready when you need us.
Whatever else your animal is used to, when you're home!
We don’t offer times slots for the visits; the afternoon round follows the morning round. If we start in Roundhay at 6am, we start there again at 2pm to ensure there is a big enough gap between visits. The visit times are house dependant. Generally, a visit lasts between 10- 20 minutes depending on what needs doing. Some visits won’t take long if the cat is outside and not a lot needs to be done, or they can be up to 45 minutes if there is a lot going off and the animals need lots of attention.
When we're out on a round, we can't answer calls or respond to emails. We will keep an eye on missed calls and text messages and will get back in touch with you as soon as possible.
The visiting times may vary around peak times, bank holidays, August and Christmas to accommodate the increased demand.
Customers must provide all food, medication, litter and treats for the duration of the service.
Although we are happy to look after any caged or small animal, our service is not suitable for dogs.
We can provide service anywhere within the red line on the map below.
