Top Cat Sitting related questions

Your hired cat sitter is an expert and comes prepared with all the necessary tools along with years of experience. What you may provide are any of your cat’s favourite food, treats, toys and blankets to make your cat more comfortable and feel more secure. If your cat has any medical issues, you can provide their medication and dosage instructions for your cat sitter to administer them. Remember to provide the key to access your home or flat!

The time and duration of the service depends on your cat’s needs. If your cat has unique needs and can’t be alone, your sitter can make daily visits and stay for at least an hour to ensure your cat has their food and water bowls filled. They can give them any medication if required. Some cat sitters may stay longer to keep your cat company, but this can cost extra.

Yes! You can hire a Tasker to assist if you operate a cat sitting service business. All you have to do is make a post with all the essential details on Airtasker. You’ll find that there are Taskers for a wide range of jobs, even uncommon ones like big cat sitting, house cleaning, house sitting, babysitting and cat grooming services! Just be specific in your post to attract the right Taskers.

Before deciding on a cat sitter, do a background check on them. Ask for references, and take the time to talk to a sitter’s former clients. If you’re checking out sitters on Airtasker, pore through the reviews and check the ratings on cat sitters you’re looking at hiring. Should you have the time, arrange a meeting with a potential cat sitter and take your cat along to observe how the sitter interacts with your kitty. 

A cat sitter should visit cats in their care every 24 hours. A lot can happen in the time that your cat is left alone, so it’s best to have someone check in every day. Having a cat sitter check in on them this often may reduce the chances of developing extreme separation anxiety. A cat sitter who visits every 24 hours can ensure they have a clean litter box and always have food and water.

That depends on your budget and how comfortable you are about having someone visit or stay in your home. Both a cat sitter and a house sitter need access to your home, but the cat sitter is more concerned with your cat and doesn’t usually stay. A house sitter can stay and care for your cat and look after your house and its contents, but this can incur additional costs.

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.

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! 😸😸😊🙏

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

Great service and lovely person will definitely use him again

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! Although he’s fairly easy to look after, I was so much more calm knowing how much experience and knowledge Anyssa has with animals. Couldn’t recommend her services more highly - if I could give 10 stars I would.

Hi everyone, I originally posted an ad for a cat sitter, but as plans change I’ve adjusted the ad. I’m travelling over the Easter long weekend and I’ll need a cat sitter from Friday 15th - Tuesday 19th. Sabine is a 5 year old female Manx cat (she has no tail) and she is very low maintenance. She is a rescue cat but she has a very calm temperament and generally just sleeps a lot. She spends most days alone, sleeping or laying in the sun, but can be affectionate in the evening. She is an indoor cat and prefers to be by herself rather than around other pets. She eats once a day, kibble will be provided with cat treats. She poops every second day and litter / box will also be provided. Ideally looking for someone local (near Auchenlower) who can take her for a couple of days and doesn’t have other pets. Please let me know if your interested or have any questions :) - Due date: Needs to be done on Friday, 15 April 2022

Excellent communication - regular updates and photos, responsive and kept us up to date. Friendly - from the moment we met, she was incredibly welcoming and made our cat feel comfortable in her home. Easy to deal with - I have no doubt, when I need another cat-sitter I will be asking Grace. Highly recommended, friendly and trustworthy. Thanks Grace!
