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.. kong kickeroo’s, tunnel hide and seek or flying feather toys, just let me know their preference. If it’s grooming or just being there ready with a welcoming lap to sit on – my lap is ready for them to paw – , just let us know – we’ll happily oblige!
That’s why our cat visits are 20 minutes in length (providing the cat is in at the time) as I 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.
Day play or care sessions
Daily exercise and play isn’t just for our canine companions! We also offer 15 minute day play sessions for indoor cats. It’s a great way of promoting exercise and mental simulation for their physical and emotional health. As well as indoor cats this service would be suitable for cats who are nervous or anxious and are gradually becoming acclimatised to new people such as rescued cats perhaps.

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.Geri Buttimere
