Cat Sitting

Personalized Cat Care

I love cats!  Let me cater to your cat’s unique personality. Whether you have a diva, a shy guy, an acrobat or a clown, I will find the way to put your cat at ease.  Let me be your cat sitter!  Your cats will thank you.

I have a sign in my kitchen that says: Dogs have owners, cats have staff.  Cat owners know that is true! (But a purring cat makes it all worthwhile). 

Service Area: North to 146th Street, South to Kessler Blvd, West to Lafayette Rd  East to Meridian St (US31) in Carmel and College Ave in Indianapolis. In Zionsville, I service as far west as Ford Road.  This includes the subdivisions on both sides of Ford Road.

There is a $1 per mile trip charge added to areas outside these boundries, but still in the service zip codes of 46032,46077,46228,46240,46260,46268,46278,

SERVICE DESCRIPTIONS

These visits are available between 7 am and 9 pm

THE QUICK STOP
As it implies, this is a quick visit to take care of the basics.  This visit is available only in addition to one or more other visits a day.

SOFT PURRS  Food, fresh water, medication/supplements as needed, litterbox clean-up, interactive play time, mail collection, trash to curb, water indoor plants, alternate lights and curtains, home security check,TLC and a written account of visit.

CAT NAPS   This includes all services above plus:  longer play time, lap time for a kitty nap, quality time with your cat(s) including love, hugs and affection until you return.

THE PAMPERED PET   All services above plus:  more play time, more lap time, a snout to tail assessment for wellness and gentle massage if your cat allows.

THE BEDTIME PAMPERED PET  For pet parents who prefer to have someone stay in their home longer in the evening, this visit will allow your cat(s) more “people” time.  This service is available from 6-8pm.

THE SLUMBER PARTY  If your cat has never stayed alone at night before, or (like mine) is used to sleeping with you,  have a pet sitter stay in your home overnight.  This service is offered on a limited, first come-first serve basis from 9pm to 7am for as many nights as your cat needs.

 Your privacy and asset protection are important to us.  We are insured and bonded. All staff must pass a background check.   We do not use advertising on our vehicles or wear uniforms.  We consider this a breach of security for your home and pets.
