Absolutely amazing catsitter!
We decided to get a catsitter to come to our home after a few bad experiences we had with a cattery/ pet boarding. Poliana was very responsive from start to end and took great care of our cats while we were away. One of our cats is very shy but he was very relaxed and comfortable around Poliana, which is certainly a good sign! We loved receiving the daily updates, pictures and videos and that definitely helped to put us at ease enjoying our holidays. Will definitely hire her again!
Sara is a super qualified cat nanny!:D My scaredy -pants-cat having seen her for the first time started rubbing against her legs and showed lots of trust from the first second. :D I think Sara really knows how to deal with and take care of cats. She is also very punctual, responsible, friendly and sweet. Thank you, dear Sara! We'll be addressing you more times! Natasha & Tiago

Alba is absolutely fantastic! She spent time playing with the cats and brought some toys along for them, from the videos we got whilst we were away we could tell they loved her! Even my shyest cat was a fan :) Definitely recommend, and will definitely be booking again! Two very happy cats on arrival home, what more could you ask for!

I'm absolutely thrilled to have found Bel. Except, I think my cat prefers her now. This was her second time looking after my kitty and she did a wonderful job again. I came home to a very happy kitty. Bel sends updates from every visit and sends the most wonderful time lapse videos of her interacting with my kitty. It's so reassuring and great to see my cat so well entertained and cared for. I couldn't recommend Bel more highly! She is a cat lover through and through!

Uliana was brilliant from start to finish. She was a natural with Otis, gave him lots of affection, and did everything we asked of her and more on each visit. Otis has gained a great new friend, and we'll definitely be asking her to come and take care of him in the future when we're away

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.
