It was so simple to find a pet sitter for our puppy Lola. I felt much better that she was in a loving home rather than boarded in a kennel. Overall, a great experience! Jenna R, Colorado
How Often Should You Schedule Cat Visits?
Many people think a single visit to the home is adequate. While that may be enough if you are working long hours and will come home at the end of the day, two daily visits are recommended if you are leaving on a longer trip.
If your cat is on a regular feeding schedule, your pet sitter should visit during those times to maintain the familiar routine for your cat. It can be very stressful for a cat who is on a schedule to have to deal with one big meal and the fact that the family is also gone. Multiple visits also allow the pet sitter to monitor the litter box and note any unusual changes. More than one visit per day also reduces stress levels for your cat by giving them some interaction, playtime and cuddles.
Lastly, if any complication or medical issue arises, it’s much easier to react rather than waiting for 24 hours in between visits for your pet sitter to take notice. When planning your next vacation or holiday travel, taking the extra time to find a trusted pet sitter to take care of your cat will make this a much more enjoyable experience for the whole family.
