Your cat prefers the quiet comfort and the familiar smells and sound of home. If Fluffy had it her way, she would never have to leave the house unless of course, you let her outside to catch that Cardinal at the bird feeder. Hiring a professional cat sitter is perfect for Fluffy. She still gets all the comforts of home while still having someone wait on her hand and foot. Here is a list of reasons why you should hire a professional cat sitter for your cat’s next staycation.
They Provide Peace of Mind
Professional cat sitters pride themselves on taking excellent care of your home and your cat. They are bonded, insured, and should be trained in emergency first aid & Pet CPR. Many professionals have completed continuing education and received certifications to ensure your home and your beloved pet is well taken care of. Dawn Olson, the founder of Distinctive Pet Care, is a not only a Veterinary Technician, she is also a Certified Professional Pet Sitter and Master Pet Tech CPR Instructor! In addition to checking in on your precious kitty, a professional will also check on your home to ensure everything is in working order. They will also collect the mail, the newspaper, & packages. Professional cat sitters also take the security of your home very seriously. They will give your house that “at home appearance” while you are gone by placing out trash & recycle for pick up, rotating lights, as well as opening & closing curtains. Hiring a professional cat sitter like Distinctive Pet Care will leave you at ease knowing your home and your feline friend are well taken care of.
They Help Keep Fluffy Happy & Safe
We all know cats can be pretty self-sufficient, but no matter how well Fluffy thinks she can take care of herself, she needs daily human interaction and mental stimulation to keep her happy. Cats are curious and can often find themselves in tricky situations. Your cat sitter already knows all the fun games and activities your cat enjoys playing. They know what situations Fluffy might get into when left home alone and take precautions to prevent injuries. At Distinctive Pet Care, your cat’s well-being and safety are our top priority!
They Care About Your Cat, Just As Much As You Do!
We may care for a lot of cats, but you can bet we know each of those cats by name! Your feline friend is a part of your cat sitter’s extended furry family. Professional cat sitters take the care and wellbeing of your cat just as serious as you do. This is not just a hobby to a professional cat sitter, it is a profession.
