What do cat care services include?
Cat care services include all the tasks and activities that can ensure that your cat is well taken care of when you have to be away from home and can’t bring along your precious pet. The service consists of cat grooming, cat boarding, cat sitting, and cat training. You can avail of these services in any combination you need.
Cat boarding is a purrfect service you can use when you expect to be away from home for days at a time. This is a better alternative to leaving your cat completely alone at home, and you don’t have anyone to check in on them and feed them regularly. Your cat care specialist can take in your favourite feline and ensure that their daily needs are met, such as giving them clean and warm beddings, provide them with their own litter box, food, play and exercise.
Cat care specialists can attend to your cat’s grooming needs. They can trim their overgrown nails, cut overgrown and matted patches of fur, and comb them. Your cat care specialist may bathe your cat if necessary or if you ask them to do so. The cat is bathed while they are gently restrained with a cat harness, and warm water from a non-spray hose is used to avoid stressing or traumatising your precious kitty.
A gentle cat shampoo is applied then rinsed off, then your cat care specialist uses several soft towels to dry them. Some specialists may use a hairdryer on the lowest setting to avoid stressing them. They may also use combs to keep their fur from bunching up and help in drying your cat’s coat.
If you prefer not to board your cat, cat care specialists can go to your home to keep your cat company and feed them while you’re away. You can also drop them off at the cat specialist’s location, and they can look after your cat - you can choose which arrangement is more convenient for you. Cat care specialists can look after them on the days you schedule and for a specified length of time.
Cat care specialists can clean and refill their water and food dishes, change their kitty litter, and take some time to play with them using their favourite toys. Your hired specialist can feed your cat with any particular food if they’re on a strict diet, and apply any medication as necessary if your kitty is an elderly cat.
Your cat care specialist can train your cat to do a variety of tricks like learn how to use the toilet. Some cat care specialists may be able to teach them to do simple tricks like how to shake hands, respond when their name is called, or even “beg” for food. The training that your cat care specialist may offer can vary, so discuss what you’d like your cat to learn and what they can train your cat to do.

Hi, I am moving from Brisbane to cairns on the 20th jan 2021. I still don’t have accomodation in cairns yet so I would need someone in cairns who adores cats to look after my cat Yosè. It would be for a month or two just until I find accomodation. He would have to stay indoors as he would get disorientated with his new surroundings. He is normally an outdoor cat. He is toilet trained as well. Very placid cat but just does his own thing but likes the occasional snuggle. I would buy all good necessary. $150 per month
Cat Sitting 2 weeks

Need cat sitting for my baby boy. He’s 4 years old, desexed, friendly (even with other animals after some initial fear), well behaved and quite well trained. Need someone who can feed him 1-2 times a day (rather than leave a big bowl of bikkies for him), and he also needs his water changed once daily (if it’s after 2 days that’s fine, it just gets dust in it usually). Need someone from the 17th Dec until the 1st of Jan
