Cat Care Services
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.
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.
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.

Cat Sitter Needed. Pet Care while away
Mountain Creek QLD 4557, Australia
27th Feb 2022
We are going away from the 10th March to the 30th April (7 weeks) and we have two cats. We have looked at Kennels, and wanted to reach out first to a loving home on the Sunshine Coast that may appreciate our two cats and look after them better than a Cattery. Our cats sleep inside quietly at nighttime. They are sleeping or outside during the day. They are older cats (12 and 14 years old) and do not require much attention. They never scratch or cause trouble (we have two girls 5 and 7 so there's been no trouble). We are looking for someone with a home or farm that can look after our cats for 7 weeks. We just need them to have somewhere inside to sleep at nighttime. Preferably with access to outside for toilet (they know kitty litter trays but out of practice mostly as we have a cat door). Food is simple. Dry food and water available at all times, and some VIP pet mince at night time. Our cats have freedom to go outside, and we would love them to stay somewhere that they are not inside all day long. So thought we would try air tasker. - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 10th Mar 2022
