Cats are very territorial, so are less stressed and are happier in their own environment rather than in a cattery. It’s a win win for you and your cat. They stay in familiar surroundings and you have one thing less to worry about. By choosing to use the services of a local Balham cat sitter, you don’t have to impose on a friend, neighbour or relative to care for your pet, but instead rely on a pet care professional who will put your pet’s needs first.
Other duties while visiting your cats can include bringing in the mail, closing/opening blinds/curtains, watering plants and turning lights on and off to give your home an occupied look. We do however advise clients to use an automatic timer.
We will top up water and food bowls, clean feeding bowls, feeding area, litter tray as well as play and cuddle with your kitty.
We can also cater to your cat’s daily/weekly grooming needs while you are away, and can administer medication as required. If we notice a change in eating habits or anything else, we will make sure it is detailed for you to view when you get back. Should we become very concerned, we will of course contact you and will take your cat to a vet if needed.
Live In/Over Night Cat Care
In addition to daily cat visits, we also offer a live in or over night service. This is popular with our clients who have older cats, young kittens, those on daily medication or just discerning cat owners, wanting the assurance that there is someone in their home, especially at night and in most cases, let’s be honest, discerning and anxious cat owners, who just want more than a pop in service.
