Top Cat Care related questions

In most cases and for most of these services, no. Your cat care specialist usually has most of the tools and equipment to deliver their services, whether it’s for boarding, grooming, training or watching over your precious pussycat. But if you have any toys, special food or treats, a favourite blanket or another item that your cat likes, feel free to provide these to calm them and make them feel safe. 

The time can vary and depends on how many services on the cat care menu you take. Cat grooming can take at least an hour to complete if they are a short-haired breed, or longer if they have thick, long fur. Cat boarding depends on how long you book your cat’s stay, cat training can take a few minutes over several days, and cat sitting depends on how long you need someone to watch over your cat while you’re away. 

Yes! If you offer cat care services as a business and find yourself short-handed, you can hire Taskers to help you service your feline clients. You only have to make a detailed post about your jobs to attract Taskers with the right skills, experience and a passion for cat care. You can hire Taskers for almost any job you can imagine, including house sitting and pet door assembly. This is a purrfect way to find people to boost your staff!

One way to find out is by doing some research on them. Some cat sitters have worked years to build a good reputation, so it helps to ask the people who have already entrusted their favourite felines to them. In Airtasker’s case, you can see reviews and ratings from a cat sitter’s past clients. You can also arrange to meet a cat sitter personally, introduce your kitty to them and see how they interact. 

If you’re away from home for an extended period, having a cat sitter go to your home can give the impression that it’s never empty. Burglars may think twice about breaking in if they see that someone actually “lives” in the house and has a pet to look after. Not only does your cat get the company and care they need even while you’re away, but you also have someone that acts as a deterrent to would-be intruders. 

That depends on how long you’re going to be away from home and your budget. Either way of taking care of your cat is OK, as your cat is hardly ever alone and someone feeds them and changes their litter. Most importantly, it’s a matter of what you’re more comfortable with - leaving your cat in another location or having someone else enter your home to check-in and care for your cat.

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

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 grooming

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.  

Cat sitting

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.     

Cat training

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.

Looking for a cat sitter for my 8.5 year old British shorthair from the 9th-15th of June in your own home ideally.

Anyssa is lovely, easy to communicate with and I couldn’t have found someone better to help look after my cat!

Couldn’t recommend her services more highly - if I could give 10 stars I would.

Hi animal loving folks, I need someone very loving and kind to cat sit my 2 cats for 1 day I have to move and don’t want them stressed during this time, and would like a little time to set up new place to avoid that stress. They are both very lovely natured , loving and funny. Though I think for a few days will be timid. They are a funny pair of opposites, one is 15 yo and sleeps alot, and loves to cuddle and purrs alot! (Happy cat!) The other is a playful 5 yo, that loves to try to play with the old girl, but doesn’t get much of a response lol! They are both potty trained, which of course I will bring, along with food and some toys, and their beds. Please only make an offer if: 1. There’s to definitely be no other pets as they’ve not been around other pets and I don’t want them to 2. The environment is very calm and quiet. 3. They can be given free run of inside, and not to be let outside 4. No smoking environment 5. That you are happy to send me daily pic/s as I will be missing them terribly. 6. Prefer someone home a lot as they are used to me around a lot 7. That it is ok for them to sit on furniture. I have a cat tree and scratching poles I can bring. Please note, in 15 years my old girl (& young one) has never ever scratched my furniture. 8. That they definitely only stay inside. For I fear they may run away if let out.. I am happy to bring them to you. Please write in your offer what area you are from, and if it’s an option for me to briefly come and see them now and then. Please also advise is it an option for them to stay a bit longer if need be? Please put your offers in. Thank you.

Tania is a delightful lady and Absolutely fabulous cat sitter! She has cared for my 2 furbabies so lovingly it has made me feel very much at ease they are in good hands. 100/10! 😸😸😊🙏

Cat sitting - hosting at cat sitters home from 4/10-23/10 He doesn't like being at the vets/cattery as he likes to be around people and get some attention. He is an indoor cat, and we don't have any other pets, so I'm not really sure about how he'd go with another cat.I haven't tried having someone pet sitting him before but am hoping that this is a better option so he will be happier. He's a black cat, almost 6 years old. Desexed/Microchipped and up to date with his vaccinations. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 4 October 2022

Hi, I am going away for about a week and was looking for someone to look after my cat. I am happy for you to have him at your place or you can stay at my apartment in Albion. I do not have defined dates yet as it’s flexible I just want to put my feelers out and see people interest. He is 4 years Qld desexed and an inside cat. He is a short haired tabby and Will probably hide for the first few days anyway if he is moved to another place. Let me know your interest and we can go from there. His litter and food will be provided he basically just needs to be fed and watered. So if that suits anyone close to Albion they can pop over each day for a feed. Thanks kim

Spring Hill QLD, Australia

6th May 2022

I have a lovely 10-year-old long-haired Layanese kitty called Ceddy and he's getting quite wild and woolly. I would like him to have a haircut before it gets too chilly and wintry. He hasn't had a haircut in about 12 months and there are mats appearing here and there. I am getting rid of those when and where I can but some will need professional assistance. He is a very chilled-out customer and a lot more tolerant than most cats I've ever known. Obviously if I have to, I can take him to a vet and have him put under anaesthetic and fully clipped but I'd prefer to avoid that if possible (increased risk with age). - Due date: Flexible

Thank you so much for giving my beautiful Ceddy a much needed clip and bath! He looks SO much better and I reckon he feels better too. I can thoroughly recommend Melody to others who need long-haired cats groomed. She is gentle and understanding and you can tell she really loves cats 🐈
