Cat Sitting

Cats do best at home with daily visits from an awesome sitter!

Cat Sitter provides in-Your-Home VISITS – Novato, Ca

$30 per visit

I’m an experienced & knowledgeable cat sitter providing loving visits for your cats! They’ll be happy in their home with regular routines and playtime. 

I use interactive playtime to reduce stress, increase confidence and allow cats to simulate hunting. It’s the most IMPORTANT activity for a cat’s wellbeing! 

Contact me to discuss your care needs!

What if your cat is uncomfortable around people or strangers in the home? Adult cats can learn to like people in their home, giving them positive experiences is the key! Use a cat sitter who’ll work with your cat to be less shy and fearful. 

Looking for experience and knowledge in your cat sitter? I’ve been volunteering with Marin Humane since 2017. Helping shelter cats build confidence is a great job! 

Here’s what I’ll provide during during visits:

  • I’ll use your toys and bring my own to engage your cat(s) with Interactive playtime 
  • Hangout time for petting, scratches, lap time, brushing or just chilling. Many cats just want companionship and lap time
  • Shy, and hiding cats are supported and encouraged. Usually a wand toy will bring them out from hiding.
  • Food and water are monitored, refreshed and refilled 
  • Litter boxes are cleaned and monitored each visit. Yes, I count poop and urine clumps
  • You’ll get a GPS tracked, time stamped report card each visit
  • Videos and pictures of your cats
  • If needed, I’ll take them to the Veterinarian

Behaviorists recommend a minimum of twice daily visits. I’ve found two visits per day is critical for emotional and physical health. I have encountered situations that could have been dire if left 24 hours:
*Ant infestation into food bowls during the night.
*Illness requiring Veterinarian exam.
*Access to litter box became blocked
*Allergy attack requiring cone and medication
*Painful abscess that required treatment
*Sudden aggression in a two cat home
*Urinary blockage in male cat                                            

Age is not a disease!, senior cats get shorter playtime.
I use wand toys for low impact stalking & mousing.

Hiding & fearful cats: Hiding is a way for cats to protect themselves. That’s why they choose dark, inaccessible spots to hide. Treats (if allowed) like Bonito flakes, Temptations, or Churu provide a positive human association and draw them out. Dangling a wand toy near a hiding cat usually entices them out to play. The higher the stress the slower we go. Building a trust bond with hiding cats is achievable in most cases.
