Professional Cat Sitter: Reasons to Hire One

Cats require less attention than dogs, but they still need attention and care when you are not home. But what do you do if you work during the day and can’t provide the attention your cat needs? Or you are out of town and need someone to look after your cat while you are away?

There are many reasons you may need a professional cat sitter, but we have the top 6 reasons you might want to consider hiring us:

1. Cleaning The Litter Box

Cats don’t need outdoor bathroom breaks like dogs do; however, they enjoy a clean litter box. A professional cat sitter will clean litter box during each visit but put waste in an outside garbage can. This task will eliminate odors in your home and discourage your cat from defecating somewhere else in your home. Professional cat sitters will also clean around the litter box so you come home to a clean house.

2. Boredom

Cats are very curious creatures and love to explore. When a cat is left alone with no one to interact with, they can become bored and depressed. A professional cat sitter will spend some quality time playing with and petting your cat.

3. Exercise

Exercise is crucial to having a healthy cat. Cats may sleep a lot, but spending a little time with your cat everyday playing is a great way to keep your cat active and to provide the necessary exercise that she needs. But when you are busy or away from home, hire a professional cat sitter who will spend time with your cat playing and keeping your cat active.

4. Bonding

We love our cats and want to create a long lasting bond with them. One way to do this is to spend some play time with your cat. A professional cat sitter will provide your cat with play time during each visit. This will not only give your cat some bonding time, but it will also provide your cat with exercise and entertainment.

5. Fresh Food & Clean Water

When you are out of town, you will need someone to check on your cat daily and make sure she has clean water and fresh food. Some cats will not drink old water and love to eat fresh food over food that has been in her bowl for days. A professional cat sitter will give your cat fresh water during each visit and make sure that your cat always has fresh food. Also, if your cat needs any special medication, a professional cat sitter will make sure your cat gets her medicine as instructed.

6. Home Security

When you are out of town, a professional cat sitter will also provide home-care such as checking your mail, bringing in the newspaper, taking the trash outside for pickup, alternating lights and opening/closing the blinds to make your house look lived in.
