"Cat Sitting" as a business is a relatively new pet care service. Naturally, off the record, is going on for many years, but the idea of hiring a professional is something that most people are not familiar with. However, it gradually acquires a strong reputation against the other solution, which is a hotel or a guest house for pets.

After you read this article, you will have a better understanding of our service and it value, knowing that there is a way to feel safe, while you are away from your beloved pet and your home.


Cat Sitting, is basically a service where a person comes to your house to take care of your cat while you are away. It's the opposite of transfering your cat to a guesthouse for pets. 

This allows your cat to stay in the comfort of your home and not be confined, in a cage, at some foreign environment. Remaining in it's space, drastically reduces the stress and preserves it's mental and physical health.
