Manon heeft op mijn 2 katers gepast tijdens mijn vakantie. Alle communicatie is snel en open verlopen, een dag van tevoren is alles even doorgenomen om alles duidelijk te hebben. Tijdens de vakantie af en toe een update gekregen om te laten weten dat alles goed ging. Bij thuiskomst was alles netjes en waren de katten nog goed voorzien van voer en water, niks op aan te merken.

Extremely happy with Danielle, great contact before, during and after booking - including photos whilst we were away. Came home to very happy cats!

Rosalie heeft nu 2 keer voor ons opgepast. Ze is super betrouwbaar en flexibel. Ze luistert naar mijn wensen en vraagt wat Doerak fijn vindt. Ik krijg elke dag updates en foto's, wat super fijn is! Als we terug komen van vakantie zit er een relaxte kat op ons te wachten :)

Melanie was amazing. She updated us about the wellbeing of our cats twice a day with a detailed text and pictures. She was eager to meet up with us before we left and asked a lot of questions in how to best take care of our cats. She did a wonderful job and can only recommend her 100% and hire her again.

Some cats need more attention than others, especially young kittens, elderly cats and kitties who need medication. For these cats, an overnight sitter can be a better solution than a daily visitor while you are away. Holiday cat feeders are also a great alternative to cat boarding: cats can stay happy in the comfort of their own home.
You will have the reassurance that a cat-loving carer will be at your furry friend’s side from evening to morning. An over-night cat sitter also provides peace of mind that your property isn’t left empty for long periods of time.
All of our vetted and trusted carers go beyond feeding your cat and changing the litter. Playing and socialising with your cat is just as important, as is sending you daily updates and photos.
Cat in a Flat cat minder offer a range of tailored at-home cat care options depending on your kitty’s needs. Search our community to find the best local cat sitter experienced in administering medication, and even doing injections. Many will also be happy to water your plants and pick up the post.
Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs
How to prepare for an overnight cat sitter
Overnight cat sitting services requires additional preparation to be ready for your guest. Here are top tips to make sure your cat sitter feels welcome in your home. It’s important that they have everything they need for the duration of their stay.
Will my cat be ok with a cat sitter?
Cat in a Flat has years of experience in running a cat-sitting community. We know that the vast majority of cats are more than ok with a cat sitter; they enjoy the experience and attention. We also know how important it is to provide cover and reassurance if something goes wrong while you’re away. That is why cat sitters are covered by our Cat in a Flat Guarantee. Cat sitting is a safe, reliable and trustworthy service providing love and care for your cat while you’re away. It’s a great alternative to cat boarding or a cattery.
What should I expect from a home visit or overnight cat sitting service?
Daily in-home cat sitting services can start from $10 per visit and should last 20-40 minutes. This allows your kitty to get fresh food & water, a scooped litter box, lots of affection and a chance to play. You can also look forward to reassuring daily updates and pictures of your cat while you’re away.
An overnight cat sitter will do all of the above and also spend the night at your property. An overnight sitter provides more company and attention for your cat. They also make your property looked lived in, which is better for home security. Overnight sitters are ideal for very young kittens that are still in their socialization phase or older cats that might need medication at specific times.
Avoid the stress of cat boarding and return home to happy, relaxed kitties enjoying the comforts of their own home.
