Top Cat Sitting related questions

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!

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.
