Going away when you have pets can be a challenge. For cat owners, having someone come to the home is usually the first choice. Cats are territorial animals and most of them dislike leaving their territory, so having a cat sitter allows your kitty to stay in their home environment.
As a cat owner, I know it can be stressful leaving your kitties, especially with a stranger. I will try to make their experience as close to normal as possible, so please feel free to let me know any odd quirks or preferences your kitty has. (Trust me, your instructions aren't likely to be any more detailed than the ones I leave when I go out of town.) Do they only drink water from a glass by the bed? Like their food heated? Have a particular routine for treats? Just let me know.
Please note: there is no cat sitting over the Christmas. I have young nephews who live out of town and I spend the holiday with them. I also have a much smaller sitting area than grooming area and I do not travel outside it. Please check the service area page for more information.
