Cats are independent and cope well on their own. Nevertheless, during an extended absence, many owners prefer to organise cat sitting to cater for your cat’s welfare while you’re on holiday. There are various cat sitting services which vary according to your requirements.
Cat sitting with a host family is a great alternative to catteries. The family will be there to provide company and constant care in a homely environment. This form of cat sitting can suit many breeds of cats, both sociable and solitary.
If your cat is territorial and disturbed by a change in surroundings, consider cat sitting in your own home. With overnight cat sitting, the sitter stays in your home to spend time with your cat and look after its welfare. Unlike home sitting, the cat sitter doesn't do household tasks but cares for your cat.
If your cat is very independent and just needs feeding and a change of litter, opt for visits. With this service, the sitter will visit your home. During these visits your cat will enjoy games and cuddles with its sitter until you get home.
