Having to leave your cats while you are away on holiday or going away for work can be a difficult decision. You may not want to keep asking friends, family or neighbours and your cat may not enjoy going to the local cattery. An alternative to this is hiring a professional cat sitter.
What Does A Cat Sitter Do?
A cat sitter will take care of your cat in your own home. Your cat can stay in their own familiar surroundings. Your cat sitter will visit during the day, as many times as you require to feed your cat, change litter trays, give fresh water, medications if required and lots of fuss and attention.
Your cat sitter can also draw your curtains, bring in any post, put out recycle bins and turn lights on and off giving your home that lived-in look.
How Many Times Will You Visit?
We can visit your cat as many times during the day as you require. If your cat is an inside cat, then you may feel once a day is sufficient. If your cat likes to go outside and hasn’t got access to a cat flap, we can visit in the morning and let your cat outside after feeding and then visit at teatime to let them back in again. More elderly cats may benefit from extra visits throughout the day to check on them and provide companionship.
What if my cat doesn’t like new people?
If your cat is very shy and timid, a visit once per day will usually be sufficient. We will always take the time to get to know your cat but only give affection if it is welcomed. If they don’t want affection or us to play with them, we will give them the space they need. We usually find that once they realise we are coming to feed them, they start to relax more and get used to us.
How Does Much A Cat Sitter Cost?
Cat sitting prices can vary depending on which branch and how many visits you require. Contact us today for a quote.
