How to Judge a Good Cat Sitter
You and the ‘boss’ will want to find the purr-fect carer and we always recommend that you meet the cat sitter before you go away. That way, you, your cat and the sitter all get to know each other.
During this introductory visit, watch how the cat sitter interacts with your cat. First impressions are important. But also bear in mind that if your cat is shy, he may need some time to trust this new face.
A good cat sitter will ask the right questions, collecting that vital cat care information as part of the cat sitter process. They will want to know about feeding, the litter tray, and about your furry friend too – where he likes to hide, how he likes to be played with. Much more personal than a cattery! As an owner, have the important information listed on your profile page or ready to share on the visit. If you have any other requests such as collecting mail, or watering plants, a good sitter will happily help with these too.
When joining our community you will find lots of great tips for owners and cat sitters in the Forms & Tips section of your profile.
We encourage all our sitters to send daily updates. Each owner will have a personal preference on frequency. If you feel the updates are not as often as you’d like, please let the sitter know. Being assured that your fur baby is well is the most important thing so you can relax while away.
