Ask for a quote to your measure, indicate how many cats do you have, how many days do you need and what mode you choose (at your home or in my place). Please call me + 351 917 055 346 every day from 9:30 am to 9:00 pm or send me an email to or

Here is Cat sitting Os gatos também sonham service, step by step:

1. Initial meeting:

Please contact me to schedule a free initial meeting at my place or in the house where the cat / the cat inhabits. It will take 45 minutes / 1 hour approximately.

The main aims of this first moment is for the owner: 1- to feel confortable with my house visit during the absent days; 2- To get to know me better 3-To share all the important aspects of the habits and your pet’s health.  This procedure will allow me to develop a quality work during the owner absence and also answer any questions the owner may have about my work and service. Thus gives the animal the opportunity to get pre-acquainted with the cat sitter and my home space.

    Ana looked after our Zorro and Gigi for two weeks while we were in South Africa. She was absolutely amazing, sending videos and updates everyday. She gave us excellent advice on nutrition and behaviour training and we will definitely be using Ana in the future. She is a life saver and a CatWhisperer of note!

    Amazing catsitter. We could see how happy the cat was on the videos that Ana sent us and it was a nice treat for us at the end of the day to see the videos 🙂
    She also gave us great advice about nutrition.
    She did such a good job we thought the cat would be fed up when we returned and wouldwant to stay with Ana! Fantastic. She’s definitely our catsitter from now on.

    We used the services of Ana for 12 days. It is the 1st time we ever ask a cat sitter to take care of our 2 cats and that has been a fantastic experience for both us and them.
    Daily report on how are the cats including videos and pictures!
    Ana truly loves cats and she provides a very professional service. Obrigada Ana!!

    If you truly care about your cat and you want them to be looked after and pampered, then Ana is the cat-sitter you’re looking for! Very reasonable prices and great daily communication, both before and during your Cat’s stay with her (in English if needed). Our cat is very nervous but after only one day was clearly quite comfortable in Ana’s home. While we were away we had no doubt that he was in good care. Highly recommended.
