Meet The Team
When we merged in 2018, we originally covered the whole of the city and its surroundings ourselves. After being in business collectively for over 4 years, we had built up such a local client base that we were starting to struggle with the further areas, so to make things better for all our lovely clients, new and old, we decided to evolve to be able to provide a reliable solution for everyone's cat care needs.
We are both so passionate about our business and are still very much involved with visiting your cats in our local areas, but we also have our wonderful assistants for those times where we need a few more spaces to cater for your beautiful cats. Click on our names to read a bit more about us.
Faith Lucy - Faith the Cat Sitter
Faith has been cat sitting since March 2015, firstly part time as Cat Care Eaton, before taking her business full time under the name of Faith the Cat Sitter, which takes us up to now! She is an ambassador for rescue cats, regularly donating to Cats Protection and in the past has also branched out into fostering rescue cats before they find their forever homes (albeit to end up re-homing her last foster cat, Moo, herself!). She has 4 cats of her own at home, Moo, Star, Tommy and Fifi, and lives in the Unthank Road area of Eaton NR4, making her home perfect for her focus areas of Norwich South - NR1 South, NR2 & NR4, but she also covers Trowse and parts of NR5 depending on availability.
As well as updating our joint page with regular photos, you can also catch up on her latest clients and testimonials on her seperate Facebook page by clicking here.
Kylie Rouse - The Cat Lady Norwich
Kylie set up The Cat Lady Norwich in December 2015, expecting it to be a part time venture, but it ended up full time within 4 months and she often credits it (and all the lovely cats) for bringing light back into her life after a rough patch professionally. Kylie has one very spoilt kitty princess at home, Maggie, who would hate to share her attention with another feline friend. Volia! The Cat Lady Norwich was born so that Kylie could fuss lots of cats to her heart's content and go home to Maggie afterwards! Kylie worked with medicines for 11 years before setting up her business, and has furthered her knowledge of cats by taking multiple courses, with veterinary practice on the horizon. She has always wanted to be in the heart of Norwich City, and has recently moved to central NR3, meaning she can easily access all her main postcodes of NR1 North, NR2 and NR3 itself. She also covers parts of NR6 & NR7 depending on her schedule.
Just like Faith, Kylie also has a seperate Facebook page for extra photos and reviews, you can click here to see it.
Kylie's assistant for NR1 (North), NR2, NR3, NR6 & NR7
Katherine had been a long-standing client of Kylie's before answering an advert to be her cat sitting assistant and setting up her own business as Kat's Kats. She has two fur babies of her own, both indoor cats who have had their health issues over the years, meaning she's well equipped for all eventualities! She has a little girl and a part time job in the week, so for now helps Kylie on alternate weekends, residing on Sprowston Road in NR3 so a perfect fit for the surrounding local areas. Katherine is insured with Pet Plan Sanctuary and has a clean DBS check.
Faith's assistant for NR1 (South), NR2 & NR4

As well as offering a personal service for our local areas as above, we also work closely with other self employed cat sitters who cover further postcodes, to enable us to bring our fantastic service to more people! A couple of them also help with our existing clients when we are unavailable.
*Please note that these sitters are working as affiliates to NCSS, so they may have different policies. Please discuss individual arrangements when meeting!
