What you should know, when looking for someone to watch you cat.

When you have to leave your home for an short trip or an extended period of time, either for work or vacation, it can be difficult to find someone that you trust to care for your animal companions in your absence.


The right person to care for your cat or dog will have a robust mix of experience in animal care, knowledge of cats in general and more, but finding them can prove to be a challenge if you do not know where to look. Consider the following elements of a good cat sitter during your search so that you can locate someone your cat will be safe around.

Choose Someone With Experience

It likely goes without saying that you should select a cat sitter for your pet who has experience. Watching over a furry friend while you are gone may not seem like that daunting of a task, but properly caring for an animal in its owner’s absence can be much more nuanced than it may seem at first glance. From getting all of that animal’s routines and expectations correct to being on time and in the habit of remembering appointments, good pet sitting takes practice.

Medical Proficiency

Even if your cat is healthy, locating a pet sitter who has medical experience with cats can mean the difference between life and death. From choking hazards to long-term medical needs like insulin shots, your cat—like any other living thing—may need medical care from time to time. If you rely on a pet sitter who does not have connections to veterinarians or is not certified in pet CPR, you could be leaving your cat vulnerable at a critical, life-saving moment.
