Cats are truly unique. If you are owned by a cat, you know there is no other relationship that compares. They can be particular and easy-going, demanding and carefree, loyal and moody and the list goes on. Finding a cat sitter to love on them shouldn’t be difficult, but we know sometimes it is. We hope our guide to hiring a cat sitter in Union Park provides ease of mind for you in this journey!
What does a Union Park Cat Sitter Do?
A Cat Sitter provides companionship and care to your cats and kittens while you are out of town for work travel or gone for vacation.
A cat sitter is concerned with the overall safety and well-being of your home and your cats while focusing on filling the void of your absence. Their goal is is to provide an experience full of fun, love, and stress-free care.
Professional Cat Sitters will visit your home at least once per day – but up to five times per day – to scoop litter boxes, feed on your cat’s preferred schedule, administer medications, check over the security of your home – and most importantly – love on your cat.
A great cat sitter knows cats – they know that your cat may choose to hide under the bed or in your closet for the duration of their visit. A great cat sitter isn’t going to force your cat out or force your cat to get unwanted attention. A great cat sitter is patient, calm and is ready to offer unconditional petting when your cat decides they are ready for it.
A great cat sitter is also going to encourage your cat to play – be it with toys or wands – a great cat sitter will play with your cat while you are gone. Play is SO important for enrichment.
On average, we find that most cat parents request one, 30-minute visit a day – but we’ve had some cat parents request multiple visits per day and some request longer visits! We are happy to tailor your reservation to fit you and your cats’ needs.
Do you have any caged pets? Our Cat Sitters are happy to care for them too!
