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.
