Advantages of Professional Cat Sitting Services

  • Your cat will be comfortable and safe in their own home and will maintain their normal routines as much as possible.

  • We assign every client a primary cat sitter, a secondary cat sitter, and a tertiary cat sitter so if your regular cat sitter is out sick, services will continue in his/her absence with a cat sitter who is already familiar with your cat and his/her routine. We have found this helps minimize stress on the cats and allows us to provide consistent service throughout the year.


  • Your cat will receive one-to-one attention, the best care possible, and lots of love while you are away from our knowledgeable, confident, and compassionate staff.


  • You will have more flexibility with your schedule because we build the pet sitting schedule around when you are leaving and coming home.


  • We make your house look like it's lived in since we are there at least once per day.

  • We participate in on-going professional development. All of our cat sitters are trained with the same consistently high standards from the minute they join our team. This means you can rest assured that your beloved pets are receiving the best care possible from our knowledgeable, confident, and compassionate staff who are dedicated to maintaining and fostering the physical, social, and mental well-being of your cat.


  • We are Pet First Aid/CPR certified and are trained to know what to do in the case of an emergency.

In-Home Pet Sitting for Cats
