Pet Sitting & Daily visits for your precious kitten/cat

Cat & Kitten Sitting - NY & CT

It's untrue that all cats do fine staying home alone if you just fill up a bowl with a mountain of food and a big bowl of water. Things can go wrong in a house with an animal left alone; whether it’s a major medical emergency, fire, flood, electrical failure or just a minor medical problem, you wouldn’t want your cat suffering because no one checked on her during your weekend spent out of town.

It can be very stressful for a cat to find herself left completely alone for days, with no traffic of people coming and going for a long period of time. Too many people consider cats low maintenance and get them because they can go away for days and leave them alone, but please consider what this does to the cat, and how it puts the safety and health of the cat at risk. And For some cats, being placed in a boarding kennel, no matter how well run, is terrifying. As pet sitters, we take the time to play with the cat or interact in whatever way that particular cat enjoys which can make a big difference in keeping that kitty stress-o-meter at a manageable level.

How many visits do cats need?

Now to another tough question we get asked a lot, how many times a day is needed for cats? That depends entirely on your cat and his/her schedule. Though one visit might be enough for most cats, it can be very stressful for your cat to go from two meals, to suddenly one. It's not healthy for their digestion tract to gulp down in one meal what she normally would eat over multi meals. So if your kitty just has dry food left out, then one is probably enough if you feed her canned food morning and night, we suggest two visits to keep her on track, but again, it's up to what you feel most comfortable with.
