Services for Cats

My cat sitting service philosophy is to minimize stress for both cat and owner. I often sing or talk to the cats as I work so they can hear a human voice. Even if your cat is shy, after I finish taking care of their physical needs, I will spend the rest of my time with them softly talking as they feel safe in their special hiding spot.

Clients can mix different visit packages/lengths for any pet sitting reservation. For longer absences, I recommend grouping longer and more frequent visits after a certain period of time has passed to provide more companionship, as cats may become more lonely as more time passes. For example, lengthening visits and visiting twice per day.

I can also visit simply for feedings (e.g. midday feeding), brush out and nail trim, or litter box scooping. Pricing is based on time and location.
