Cat Sitting

Cats are beautiful, majestic creatures. I think we can learn a lot from cats in their ability to be in the moment and how they relax and breathe. I want to get to know your cat. We believe that it’s important to play with your pet while we are car sitting for them.. kong kickeroo’s, tunnel hide and seek or flying feather toys, just let us know their preference. If it’s grooming or just being there ready with a welcoming lap to sit on – our lap is ready for them to paw on!

That’s why our cat visits are 20 minutes long (providing your cat is in at the time) as we believe it’s vital to make your absence as stress free as possible. It’s not enough to simply run in scoop their litter, and change food and water – to me that’s not quality or sufficient cat care. I want your cat to get to know me, build a relationship and associate positive things when I arrive! They’ll miss your presence while you’re away and I want to make it as stress free as possible for them. Our cat sitting service in St Albans takes away the stress of car travel and a trip to a cattery or cat hotel where there are different sights, sounds and smells.

We believe that it’s important to play with your pet. That’s why our visits are 20 minutes long.

Cat and Kitten Care St Albans - Cute kittens

Having a cat that is 10 years old and who is on a special diet means that I was reluctant to leave him to have a break. However after Lisa came round to discuss my cat’s history, dietary requirements and needs I knew he would be in safe hands. Thankfully Lisa was available to take care of my cat overnight, which was great as I didn’t want to leave him alone and there was the extra benefit that my home was safe and secure. Whilst I was away Lisa sent me regular photo and text updates. When I returned my cat was relaxed and content.

I will definitely use Albany Pet Services again.
