The Ultimate Guide to Cat Sitting

So, your holiday’s all booked and you’re looking for someone to take care of your cat while you’re away? Perhaps you want an alternative to the traditional cattery… Or maybe you just need someone to pop in on your kitty to keep them company for 30 minutes a day? If that’s the case, let us help! There are plenty of cat sitting solutions available to you. Read on to find out more!

How Does Cat Sitting Work?

While it’s true that cats are relatively independent animals—much more so than dogs, of course!—we don’t recommend leaving any pets alone in the house for too long. Your cat still needs to eat, after all! And who will provide their meals if you’re gone? Who will make sure they’re safe and happy, play with them, or administer medication? These are all important things to consider. Using a cat sitter ensures that your cat is provided with all the love and care they need in your absence. You can choose between a daily 30-minute visit, overnight cat sitting in your own home, and cat sitting with a host family. It's up to you to select the option that best suits you and your feline friend! Find out more about how cat sitting works in our article.
