The answer to this question is no and the reasons why we don’t do every other day cat visits are below.
Cats in general can be very independent, they give and receive affection on their terms, play only when they feel like it, if at all but as independent as they may seem they still need supervision.
Some people think that leaving their cat alone with only a pet visit every other day and an automatic cat feeder will be okay.
A cat left home alone for more than a day at a time could lead to tragedy. To ensure your cats safety, Scamps & Champs does not offer every other day cat visits for the following reasons:-
Your Cat Could Get Ill
Cats can become very unwell, very quickly as we have experienced. Swift action can be taken by your pet sitter to take your cats to the vets for emergency treatment. A visit 48 hours later may well be too late.
Your Cat May Become Injured
Accidents can and do happen. A cat left unsupervised for more than 24 hours increases the risk of an injury. Your cat could injure themselves after the pet sitter has visited but would then have to wait 48 hours for her to return causing them unnecessary pain and suffering before being able to get them veterinary treatment.
The Automatic Pet Feeder May Malfunction
Again this something we have experienced where an automatic pet feeder has not opened at the time it was scheduled to. Your cat would be extremely hungry having to wait 48 hours for their next meal.
Your Cat Could Become Trapped
Another of our experiences. We arrived at a client’s house and the cat didn’t come to greet us as she normally did. After hunting all around the house, we discovered that the cleaner had locked her in a bedroom. Imagine we hadn’t found her for another 48 hours, we would have had an extremely distressed, very hungry and thirsty cat, not to mention the damage done to the client’s bedroom. A daily visit by a professional pet sitter will ensure your cat remains safe.
Your Cat Could Run Out Of Water
We have visited cats where they have managed to upturn their water dish. Even the sturdiest of bowls can be flipped over. Your cat would have no access to fresh water for 48 hours.
We have had lots of different experiences over the last eight years and because of what we have learned, we will not offer pet visits every other day for the safety of your cats. Leaving your cats home alone without a pet visit every day to check on them just doesn’t make sense when you consider the potential risks.Scamps & Champs daily cat visitswill ensure the safety of your pet and provide them with care, love and attention while you are away providing you with peace of mind.
