Would 100% recommend Amy for any job she is reliable, friendly, flexible and always sends photos of my cat so I know he’s ok. I’ve used Amy a couple of times now and she is trustworthy and I would definitely use her again.

What do cat sitting services include?

The cat sitting service includes all the tasks and activities necessary to care for your cat while you’re away. This involves feeding and medicating your cat if required, sending you updates, having some playtime and cleaning out their litter box as necessary. 

Feeding and playing with your cat

Your hired cat sitter can go to your home to feed your cat. This may include cleaning your cat’s food and water bowls and cleaning them out after your cat has eaten. Your cat sitter can give your cat the prescribed amount of food, and even feed them only the food and amount you specify if they are on a strict diet.  

Some cat sitters can provide the cat food should your supply run out, but this can cost extra. After their meal, your cat sitter can stay with your cat for a while to play with them and keep them from feeling sad or lonely. Some cat sitters make this part of the service package, but some may charge a little extra.  

Giving them their medication

Your hired cat sitter can give elderly cats or cats with medical issues the medication they need. The cat sitter can give your cat eye drops, ear drops, feed them pills and apply most other medication your cat needs, all while following the prescribed dosage instructions. Some cat sitters may replenish the prescriptions should these run out, but they may charge a separate fee for this.

Sending updates

Thanks to smartphones and messaging apps, you don’t have to wonder or worry about your cat’s status every minute. Your cat sitter can send you updates in the form of pictures, video recordings, real-time videos or any combination of these sent to you through one of these apps. These updates of your cat can be sent each time your cat sitter goes to your home to check in on your beloved kitty. 

Cleaning the litter box

With no one to clean the litter box, the house can foul up, and your cat may eventually refuse to use the litter box and do their business in random areas. To avoid this, your cat sitter can dispose of the used kitty litter and replace it with a fresh batch. This can be done as often as needed. 

Other services

Some cat sitters may offer extra services for an additional fee. This can include cleaning out areas that your cat may have made a mess in, taking out the garbage, checking your mailbox and placing the mail on your counter, or bringing in any newspapers or packages that were left on your doorstep. 

This can help keep up the impression that your house isn’t completely empty and deter any would-be intruders. But if you are also concerned with the security of your home while you’re away, consider hiring a house sitting service or house sitters.

Cat sitter - look after in your own home


Melbourne VIC, Australia

8th Jan 2024

Naliyah is a friendly chill cat - looking for someone to take care of her for a month. Needs to able to collect her for pet sitting on Sunday/Monday 21/ 22nd of January. She is very easy going, affectionate 13 year old and spends majority of the day relaxing. Indoor cat. Although social with humans, she doesn’t get along well with other cats. We are looking at rehoming her, as we are relocating overseas - would be amazing if the pet sitter bonds with the cat to give them a forever home, or if they know someone in their circle that would love Naliyah as their own. If not - it’s ok as well. We just want her to be looked after well for the next month :) - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 21 January 2024
