About Nicole

Hello there, thank you for clicking on our profile and considering us as your potential sitter and housemate for your furkids. I’m Nicole and I live next to Holland Village. Our team consists of 2 Singaporean ladies - Nicole (main cat sitter) & Emily (assistant cat sitter). We cover each other on bookings so you get 2 loving cat sitters for the price of 1, ensuring peace of mind.

As cat mommies ourselves, we understand the importance of hiring a communicative and reliable cat sitter. We would want nothing less for our own fur kid Sumo. Drop a message to enquire and have a read below on the services we provide.

Chat now to enquire or book our services. We can’t wait to meet you and your fur kids.

Love,

Nicole & Emily

This meeting is the best time for you to go through your feeding schedule for your furkids, their likes and dislikes, favourite snacks and food preparation, point out your furkid’s favourite hiding places, litter box clearing method (throw in trash or flush down toilet) , favourite toys, emergency vet contact info, location of cat carriers. If your fur kid is shy and would need a free additional meet up, feel free to let us know and we will accommodate if we can :)

- Play time with their favourite teasers and toys, brushing/rubs

Routines will remain the same, and everything will be kept the way they are, to minimise disruption or separation anxiety your fur kids may experience. Our goal is to keep the experience stress free for both fur kids and you, so you can enjoy that well deserved holiday and your fur kids enjoy an uninterrupted play and eating schedule without having to leave the comfort of their home.

As other pawrents have mentioned in our reviews, we’ll send lots of photos and videos of your fur kid, so you can see your fur kid’s behaviour and sense of ease with us. We’ll also ensure that your home is kept the way it is. If you’ve got house plants, we’ll help to water them too. We have a car so transport for your furkids in the event of an emergency is easy, and we’re also able to rush down on short notice.

As usual I was extremely apprehensive about leaving my cats whilst gone. I already knew a while beforehand that I'd be gone for quite sometime so I contacted Nicole in advance. I was most impressed in her profile that she had taken care of multiple cats before - which is why I reached out to her..

As anyone who has done this or has multiple cats, will know that this is usually much more complex than having just 1 or even 2. Because of the dynamics of my lot, it meant that I needed someone who was patient and able manage this.

Shortly before I left, my lot suddenly had some territorial issues that I had started to resolve through starting a reintroduction but it was not yet at it's best but I had run out of time before I went. There were still some big and unpredictable tensions between them at times. I had asked Nicole to come over a couple of times before because I had needed some time to try til the very last minute to figure it all out and then share with her, what the state was when I left. She was more than willing to come over to hear the latest developments which I was really grateful for. I needed to have as much time as possible to work things out and she was very kind in doing so. She was also very reassuring that she would be OK if things got challenging at all. She wouldn't give up or leave me in the lurch - which would have been really hard to deal with as my trip away was v important.

My husband was not yet travelling and would be taking care of them for a time before joining me abroad. Out of nowhere he became very sick and unable to cope with taking care of my cats and then returning to work (still quite unwell).

I contacted Nicole (and Emily by this point) and asked if they could help out a little earlier - which they agreed to do. This was a lifesaver and they were very understanding the helpful. Without this, things would have also been very difficult for myself, by husband and the cats!

Over the course of the entire care taking they were great. I felt pretty relaxed (as much as I could think I could be myself) with Nicole and Emily taking care of them. 3 cats is not easy and my complex systems and work arounds meant they had to learn a lot, be flexible and some what proactive when things did not happen as we might hope. I could go on for a long time here but I won't.

Here's whatI really appreciated about them taking care of my fur-kids (In no particular order):

- I myself have been at a point when I needed to give up with some of the cat issues I have had in the past - but because they are my cats, I couldn't but I am not sure how others would feel about my cats. But at no point did it feel that I would be left in the lurch by these ladies.

- They observed and managed 3 not very predictable cats.

- They did their best to learn and adhere my rather complex cat management/home systems - often having to improvise based on the emo cats states.

- They took great care of my cats and gave them lots of love (including doing their best to ensure each one ate their meals, not always easy in a multi-cat home, cleaning up sick, plus all the other usual cat care taking duties, x 3).

- They helped out earlier when we were in a bit of a spot because of my husbands illness and work.

- They did some cleaning and vacuuming to help ensure that the place did not go into complete ruin whilst I was away.

- I received regular, timely updates.

In short, I would highly recommend Emily and Nicole. I hope they will be willing to take care of my cats again. It would really help so I can go away for slightly longer than a few days at a time, more regularly then every 5 years! I hope this review does not make them so busy that they do not have time to take care of my lot any more.

Thank you!

Nicole was great. I received detail info on my car and so many pictures and videos. Nicole also watered my plants and collected my mail. She even came on her off day to play with my cat. She's a gem.
