"I am so happy and grateful for Maria's care of my two beloved cats for 9 days over the Christmas and New Years holiday. Maria set herself from others who bid on my task by wanting to meet my pets prior to assigning the task. Maria asked careful questions about their care and how to handle any situation that might arise. While away she kept me updated on them and shared photos which eased my mind about their well being. I HIGHLY and unreservedly recommend Maria to anyone who wants a task completed with care and diligence, and if you are entrusting her with precious pets, people or tasks be at ease with Maria on the case.

Top Cat Sitting related questions

Do I have to provide my own tools and equipment for my cat sitting service?

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!

How long does it take to do my cat sitting service?

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.

Can a Tasker also help me with my cat sitting service?

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.

How do I choose a good cat sitter?

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. 

How often should a cat sitter visit?

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.

Should I hire a cat sitter or a house sitter when I’m away?

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.

My friend volunteered to help but cancelled on me. I will be away in Queensland from the evening of Thursday, 10 June and I will return on Monday, 14 June. This job will start on Friday, 11 June to Monday, 14 June but I need you to come in the morning or noon on Thursday, 10 June to collect my house keys and I will explain what needs to be done. I need someone who lives not too far from my rented house in Auburn to walk my dog, feed my dog/cats and clean the cat litter box at least once daily. My dog usually walks about 30-40 minutes in the morning and I let him go for a quick pee outside at night to relieve himself. I have a few potted plants that need to be watered every two days.

Thanks for taking care of my pets while I was away. I came back to a clean house and a bunch of happy animals.

Sydney NSW, Australia

I need someone to take care of my cat, Oscar, over the period 30 March to 11 April - in your home. Oscar is a nine-year old Tonkinese. He loves human company and is very affectionate and chatty, and playful at times. All you need to do is feed him and pay him some attention. He’s ok to be left alone during the day. He is an indoor cat, so must stay inside all the time. He’s ok on an apartment balcony (if there’s no escape route), but he can’t go out into a courtyard or backyard. I’ll provide all food, bowls, bedding, toys, cat litter and litter tray. I may need to extend the period to 18 April, but we can negotiate that (for extra fee). If this works out (for you, for Oscar), then this could become a semi-regular thing.

Dana is really easy to deal with, and did an excellent job for me. Highly recommended.

Crows Nest NSW 2065, Australia

17th May 2021

Looking for an experienced cat sitter to take care and strengthen the relationship between my two cats. My partner and I work long hours and we unfortunately can’t give both cats the sufficient attention they need during the day. Both cats don’t get along and we would need someone to not only feed, play with them but progressively get the two cats to like each other or at least be civil. We’ve had the new cat for 3 months now and they’ve had over a handful of fights. We’re also well aware the cats won’t be friends overnight. This will be an ongoing task for the foreseeable future. We’re looking for someone to come to our house at least 3 times a week. Cat 1 Lewis 9 years old Independent, not very social, anxious, but cute Cat 2 Toffee 22 months old Playful, social, very needy and always hungry Cat sitting will be done in crows nest 3 to 4 days a week. Prior cat sitting experience favorable. Cat behavioral specialist preferred.

Wonderful working with Monika, she was very easy to deal with and brought amazing ideas! I highly recommend working with Monika.
