    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.

    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.

Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs

How does cat sitting work?

Cat sitting is when you pay someone to look after your cat in your own home while you’re away. A trusted cat sitter will come and care for your cat every day, either with house visits or by cat sitting overnight.

A cat sitting visit includes feeding your cat, changing the water, cleaning the litter tray, playtime and cuddles. A cat sitter will also send you regular updates about your pet. Cat in a Flat’s 5-star sitters offer a personalised cat sitting service that is suitable for cats of all ages and health. Cat sitting is a great alternative to a cattery.

Here's how to find the best cat sitter for you:

  • Enter your postcode to be matched to trustworthy cat sitters in your area.
  • Read the vetted cat sitters profiles and reviews
  • Create an account for free and chat to your selected cat carers
  • Invite your favourite cat minder around for a free meet and greet
  • Once you’re happy with your choice of cat sitter, confirm the booking to include our Cat in a Flat Guarantee.

For more information watch our Guide to Cat Sitting.

What to expect from an in-home cat sitting service

Cat in a Flat cat sitters offer a selection of affordable cat sitting services tailored to suit each individual cat's needs and routine. You can book a local cat sitter to come and check on Mr Whiskers once or twice a day.

 

Daily cat sitting services can start from £/€ 8 per visit and should last 20-40 minutes. This allows your kitty to get fresh food & water, a cleared litter tray, lots of affection and a chance to play. You can also look forward to reassuring daily updates and photographs of your cat while you’re away. 

Avoid the stress of a cattery and return home to happy, relaxed kitties enjoying the comforts of their own home.

How to become a cat sitter?

Do you love cats and have some spare time? Are you reliable, friendly and polite? Then you are well placed to consider becoming a cat sitter.

 

To become a cat sitter with Cat in a Flat, simply register and submit your profile. We will take you through a step by step process and let you know if you have been approved.

The amount you can earn as a cat carer depends on the level of service you provide. Most cat sitters charge 8 - 15 £/€ for a once-daily home visit or 12 - 25 £/€ to drop in twice a day. Cat sitters usually charge 15 - 50 £/€ for overnight cat sitting stays. You can look after more than one household of cats at a time if they only need daily home visits. Many cat sitters also charge a little extra for additional services such as watering the plants. More expensive cat sitters tend to be the ones with more experience and who can administer medication.
