Professional Cat Sitters Give You Peace of Mind
Professional cat sitters make a living out of making the care of your cat and your home is their top priority. They are bonded, insured, and trained in emergency first aid & Pet CPR. Many professional cat sitters have completed continuing education and received industry certifications to ensure that your precious feline and your home are well taken care of. In addition to checking in on Fluffy, a professional cat sitter will also check to make sure your home is secure and all is in working order at each visit. They collect the mail, newspaper, & and packages along with giving your house an “at home appearance” by placing out trash & recycle for pick up, rotating lights, and opening & closing curtains. They will even water your plants and feed your outdoor birds! Hiring a professional cat sitters like Barbara and her team at Creature Comforts will give you peace of mind knowing that your home, belongings, and cat are well taken care of!
Professional Cat Sitters Keep Your Cat Safe
Even the most self-sufficient felines need to be checked in on daily to ensure they are eating, using the litter box, and not getting into shenanigans while you are gone. When left alone, some cats let their curiosity get the best of them and end up in dangerous situations like closed in a closet or hanging from the mini blinds. Keeping your cat mentally stimulated and providing daily love & attention will help keep Fluffy out of harm’s way while you enjoy your vacation.
