Five stars isn't enough. Luciana was amazing. Not only did she do a wonderful job taking care of our cat, but she kept us updated every single day with lots of pictures and detailed updates. It made our trip SO much more relaxing to know that the cat was happy. Our cat is usually very anxious and shy around strangers, but He LOVED Luciana and so did we!

Heather was awesome whilst we were away over Christmas, returned home to find Flea very relaxed and content. Great communication from the start, really friendly and sent us lots of nice photos. Would definitely recommend her and will be in touch for future trips!

The best review I can leave is that when we got home we felt that Avon and Marlo felt like they had been loved whilst we were away. They were calm, sociable and very happy when we all got together again. The level of communication was brilliant - lots of pictures on Whatsapp. We were just extremely happy with Dani - her care and her attitude were exceptional.

This was my first time using a cat sitter and I feel very lucky that I got Isha. Charlie is a rescue cat, and kennels were just not working out for her, so this was the perfect solution. Getting daily pictures, and coming back to a happy cat means that I will definitely contact Isha again when I go away. She's clearly a massive cat lover, so I can't recommend her enough.

It's quite a leap of faith giving a stranger the keys to your home, let alone the responsibility for your beloved pet. But from the initial contact, Meylin was kind, professional and attentive. She took care of our shy cat for a week and regularly updated us with pictures, videos and messages. We are confident that all our cat's needs were met, and more.

Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs
How much does cat sitting cost?
For a once-daily home visit, a cat sitter can charge 12-18 $. Twice daily drop-ins can cost from around 18 - 30 $. Overnight stays can cost from 20 - 50 $. Cat sitting is a flexible, custom and individual service so ask if you’d like your sitter to complete some additional tasks for a fee. As with most services, when finding a good cat sitter, the least expensive option isn’t always the best, especially if your cat needs extra care and attention.
