Cat & Kitten Sitting
Cats and kittens are interesting creatures, sometimes shy and elusive, while others are the "in your face kind.” Some are persnickety and some are “feed me anything and I’ll be your friend for life,” while others are so picky you want to pull your hair out. I know, I’ve had cats since I was six.
Keeping cats happy in your home while you’re away is paramount. It's there that they feel safe and secure.
Whether it’s for a day or a month, you can rest assured your feline will be cared for to the best of my ability.
If your cat is on medication (our Fred is), that shouldn’t be a problem. I ask that all meds be written down with their schedule, and that there be ample so your cat doesn’t run out before your return.
With 19 years of veterinary experience and a lifetime of cat ownership and caregiving, I’ve seen almost everything you can imagine.
At one time, we had 34 cats in our home. No, we aren’t crazy cat people. The rescue we were part of suddenly lost it space, so Larry and I took in 12 adult cats and a bunch of moms with kittens. And as our house was being renovated at the time, we turned our sheet-rocked dining room into “the cat room.” We stacked big cages for the moms, and volunteers came by to clean and feed. The adults we put in our sunroom, and I adopted out every one of them. It was a memorable time, and it gave me even more experience in handling our feline friends. And yes, I still have all my fingers. LOL!
Seriously, I always insist on a list of likes and dislikes for each cat, all contact information for your veterinarian, and permission from you to take your cat to the vet should the need arise, which, of course, I hope doesn’t happen. I dp like to be prepared because your cat is my priority.
Feel free to give me a call so we can discuss your schedule and your cat’s needs. 973 953-7592
