Cat Sitting for Kitten 4 July -14 July


Felicity took care of our big ginger boy for a few days whilst we went interstate. Felicity is warm and bubbly, kept us closely informed of how he was going (including photos), and did a sensational job. Cannot recommend her enough, and will be using her again in the future. Thanks again, Claire and Tom

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, I am looking for a cat sitter to look after my lovely cat Mimi. Mimi unfortunately does no get along with other animals (cats or dogs) so she would need to be the only pet in your home. I'm open to location (where you live) for the right fit. I am relocating to Melbourne and will not be able to take Mimi with me as I look for work and a new home for the two of us. This could take up to 2-3 months so I would like to have the option to come and visit on occasion just for a few minutes to see how she is getting along. I am happy to pay a daily rate plus kitty litter and food. - Due date: Before Monday, 7th Mar 2022

Hi! I have a gorgeous 1 year old boy (domestic medium hair) who needs a holiday home from 24 December to 16 January. Prefer no other pets in the household as he is untested with other animals. Will provide food, litter, toys etc

Overall excellent and strongly recommend. Dejana looked after my cat for 3 weeks. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish! Dejana took my cat in as part of the family and took excellent care of him. She was incredibly easy to communicate with through the entire process and always replied promptly to any messages. Dejana was very considerate and sent through photos and videos to give me a piece of mind when I was away. I couldn't ask for anything more. Dejana has my highest recommendation and she is my 1st choice for cat sitting in the future.
