"Silvia is a very reliable pet sitter, she looked after our cat while we were away on holiday and even offered to help with watering the plants too! Pictures were sent almost daily too without asking which was a nice touch! Would definitely have her help out again when we go away next. Highly recommend 👍🏼"

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.

I need someone I feel comfortable with just coming and checking in on my cat while I’m away for the weekend and ensuring she has food, water and a bit of attention and playtime for a few minutes. She does fine on her own but I’ll be gone for a total of 4 days which is too long on her own.

He’s very affectionate and friendly. I will have Airbnb guests so I need to take him to someone, preferably someone with pet sitting experience. Thanks

Cat sitting required for 2x gentle, adult (8 year old) Tonkinese cats for February and most of March. They are indoor-only cats, however have been outside on a leash before it you have a backyard. One is a bit more curious and will attempt to get outside if a door is left ajar (so needs to be watched), whereas the other doesn't seem that interested. They can be a little apprehensive around new people (will often hide for a while), but as they get used to you they are very friendly but not overly needy. Good with kids (very gentle, never aggressive even when provoked), but probably not good with other animals (tend to get scared). Very clean and have even taught themselves to use the toilet at times! Both sometimes get a bit of asthma, which can cause them to cough / hack. We attempt to give them an inhaler when this happens. One is fairly easy to administer this to, the other can be quite difficult. It usually settles in a minute or two and doesn't seem to cause them any distress anyway.

I’m going away from the 24th of December to the 1st of January and was looking for someone who could welcome my little furball Elena for that time. I will provide all her food and litter, etc. I just want her to be fed and have company! She honestly doesn’t require much and is a very chill cat.

Super nice and friendly! Will definitely ask for Elise’s help again in the future!

House/Cat Sitter Needed Over Christmas

$100

Travancore VIC 3032, Australia

10th Dec 2020

I need someone to take care of my cat while I visit family in NSW for Christmas. I will be away for 2 weeks and the cat sitter would also have the task of watering my plants and eating any produce they give (tomatoes and cucumbers atm, maybe Kale). Would prefer someone who can stay over night or chill during the day at least sometimes to keep her company as she loves to play and likes to go to lounge in the courtyard (but it's not secure to leave open all the time if noone is home). Cat gets fed twice a day, and plants watered every second unless it's really hot (or it rains thoroughly)

I'm going away for 9 days and am looking for someone to come past my place in Brunswick once every couple of days and empty my cat's litter/check his water/top up auto feeder/clean up any mess that he might have made (he's pretty clean). You'll only need to come by the house for about 5 minutes, 3 or 4 times. Ideally not looking for anyone to stay at my house, my housemate comes and goes but wont be around consistently.

Looking for someone to have our cuddly and adorable rag doll cat whilst we’re away from this Sunday 24th - Sunday 31st Jan. He has a beautiful temperament and is great with people and kids. He hasn’t been around other pets so not sure how he’ll go. He does like to chat early in the morning, so is best suited to a bigger house so he doesn’t wake you. We’ll pay $22 a day and will provide all his food, scratch post, toys, litter etc.

Anne was really easy to work with and she and her family looked after our cat really well!

Thomastown VIC, Australia

8th Dec 2020

Hi, I have a medium hair domestic cat who needs taking care of while I’m on a holiday for 2 weeks. (24 Dec- 7 Jan). He’s low maintenance, and only really needs to have his dry food and water available at all times (I often fill it up in the morning then at night). He can be quite zoomy and playful at times especially if he has not had any playtime during the day. And he may scratch but only as part of play (unless you piss him off obv). But he’s very sweet and likes to sleep with his human. He’s an indoor cat only. I can drop him off with his stuff (everything will be provided: food, bowls, litter, litter box, toys) and pick him up when I get back.
