A good cat sitter should understand the nuances of cats and be able to notice when things are okay and when things may be a little off.

My neighbor is my sitter, her dad was a vet and she is very in tune with both cats and dogs.

That's interesting. I would like to combine my love for animals to a job like this one', what could be better than staying all day with cats??? :) Thanks Cher.

Maybe I'm obsessive?? I will NOT leave my critters unless my niece in Kentucky can come up to stay with them.
Sort of limits my vacation times, but it's what I have to do.

Good information. My vets tech lives about a mile from me and I use her. One of my cats needed medication twice a day so she knew how to give it and knew how important it was for her to have the medicine. I'm very lucky to have her so close.

These are first rate tips. Fortunately, through my shelter, these are many women who will do this.

Splendid tips for many who require a sitter at times. Depends on the person and the circumstances. I had a neighbour who brought her two adorables over every evening for hours on end so if I on occasion went away, the cat that owned me way only too happy to have her visit with her two. Usually she went to visit her relatives and two twosome came over to stay over with me and the cat that owned me and everyone else.

Thank you. We've had so so luck with friends as cat sitters. Our indoor cat requires such a service and we find ourselves unable to travel for much more than an overnight or maybe two because we can't trust the sitters available in our area. In the country you either have a wonderful neighbor or a tough situation.

We just got back from an 8 day vacation to Florida. We have a self feeder so they can nibble as they want to and we had a friend come over to give them clean water and feed them once a day!

But when we got home last night, they wanted us to pet, kiss, talk to, and love on them. It was hard to unpack when any of the 5 wanted attention. I had to stop and oblige! I do believe they missed us (LOL)!
