Kirsti Gwynn

I first met Kirsti when I knocked on her door whilst helping in a search for a lost cat. She had spotted the cat out of her window, allowed me to climb through it, and even supplied me with sardines to lure the kitty. Unsurprisingly Kirsti is a life long cat lover and an experienced cat fosterer.  She has been working with us since April 2018 and we couldn't be happier to have her on the team. 

Specialities: Kirsti is an all rounder and takes care of all of our cats young and old with equal love and care. The feeling is mutual and all of our cats without exception adore Kirsti.

Customer Recommendations: '... I have just collected him {Salvador} from Kirsti and am very surprised at how relaxed he is. He is usually extremely nervous in unfamiliar situations so this is a miracle! Kirsti was wonderful. She and her husband knew just what to do to put Salvador at ease during his stay and really went out of their way to make him feel at home.' Natalie Scown 2019

Kirsti is available for home boarding and home visits in and around Maida Vale and Maida Hill.

Emma Blakemore

I first met Emma and her wife Sarah when I started looking after their beloved cat, Mogg. I was immediately impressed by the love and care they lavished on Mogg. Their empathy and almost telepathic communication with cats became even more apparent when Mogg was seriously injured in an accident. When Mogg died in 2018 and they were missing feline company I had no hesitation in asking Emma and Sarah to become part of the NHCC team. 

Specialities: Emma and Sarah are great with cats and kittens young and old, but have a special affinity with kittens and grumpy cats. They are equally adored by our cats and their owners alike.

Customer Recommendations: Emma and Sarah were absolutely amazing. Could not have had given Lila and Naya a better home in my time of need. Lila is fully blind and had no trouble settling in due to their warm hearts and home. They now have two amazing godmothers who will always have a special place in our hearts. Melis Ongun, November 2019

Emma is available for home boarding and home visits in and around Kensal Green.

Christiana Demetriou


We are extremely lucky to have Christiana on our team. She has an impressive history of rescuing cats from her native Cyprus and more recently from Dubai. Her and her husband George, have recently stepped in to foster a cat that we were desperate to find a home for. He was found on the streets of Dubai with horrific injuries and is now coming on in leaps and bounds under the care of Christiana and George.

Specialities: Rescue cats, street cats and any cat in need of love and care.

Personal Recommendation: 'Christiana has rescued, fostered, rehomed and provided compassionate care for cats in the years I have known her. I have no doubt that Cyprus strays and the rescue community lost a great asset when { Christiana } moved to the UK.

Dr Michelle Chivers, October 2020

Christiana is available for cat sitting in the Notting Hill area and when not looking after rescuing cats in her home is available for home boarding.


Rosalynd Ritacca

Rosalynd is a professional Yoga instructor and an inveterate cat lover. Rosalynd  grew up in a multi cat household and she has experience with both kittens and cats. Both Rosalynd and her cat loving husband have taken great care of the two cats they looked after before going to France to spend the lockdown period with their family.

They are still currently in France but we very much look forward to having them back to continue their good work with cats.

Specialities: Rosalynd is an all rounder with experience taking care of kittens and mature cats.

Stephanie Matthews

At six and a half years old, Stephanie's son, Finn is currently the youngest member of our team. Finnley is a natural with cats and like mum, the gentlest of souls. He has grown up with two cats Nico, a cuddly teddy bear of a cat and Arlo a more recent, loveable rescue with a spikey temperament. Finn navigates between these two very different cats with ease, learning the art of the cat cuddle with Nico and how to tread lightly with Arlo.

Specialities: Tiptoeing, being very patient and super cat cuddling skills, (but only when requested by the cat!)

Customer Recommendations: My lovely rescue cat Pippa is a bit nervous of new people but she loves it when Steph and her son Finn come to look after her and play - Finn is probably better at this than us grown ups and Pippa looks forward to games with Finn and even sitting close- but not TOO close...Patricia Roberts, Kensington, August 2021

Finnley is available, accompanied by his mum during school holidays and some weekends.

Stephanie joined us in early 2020 and is now an indispensable member of our team. A certified cat lover with a gentle nature, two rescue cats of her own and great references. Stephanie has impressed our customers and charmed our cats with her genuine, down to earth and caring nature. I am not sure how we ever managed without her.

Specialities: Like all our cat carers, Stephanie loves all cats but she is great with very shy or timid cats that need patience and encouragement to bring them out of their shells.

Customer Recommendations: Our cat is a timid little thing who always hides from new people - we didn't expect her to venture out of her hiding place during the three weeks we were away. To our surprise, our very patient Cat Sitter Stephanie earned Bibi's trust and became best pals!
Stephanie also went above and beyond to let in a tradesman who needed to investigate a water leak in our apartment. Five stars! (We'd give you six if we could) Rene S, October 2020

Stephanie is available for home visits in and around Notting Hill.

Specialities: Jose is a consummate all rounder and is mutually adored buy all his feline charges without exception.

Customer Recommendations: Jose has been wonderful, he and Sheila are good pals now. He even watered some dying plants. Kyleigh W
