5 Things Your Cat Sitter Should Absolutely Know


For most of us, our cats are family members. Dogs often have the luxury of traveling with their families and are often included in vacations and trips, but we can all imagine what would happen if we tried to take our cats with us. Instead, we usually opt to leave our feline friends at home with a pet sitter. Whether that sitter is a friend doing us a favor or a hired professional, there are some things they should know before you leave town.

How to contact you
If possible, give your sitter information about where you will be and how they can contact you in case of an emergency or if anything is unclear about how they should care for your cat. If you’re lucky, your cat sitter may even periodically send you pictures of your cat while you’re away.

If you won’t be available or won’t have phone service, consider leaving contact information for a family member or close friend who can be contacted in case of an emergency.
