In-Home Cat Sitting

Your Cat Doesn’t Need to Leave Home Just Because You Do

Helping Cats Live Their Best Lives

Leaving home is stressful for some cats. Cat sitting allows your cat to stay in the comfort of their own home while still enjoying much needed companionship from our skilled and loving cat care experts.

Our team specializes in delivering the best care to cats. Our team includes a Doctorate of animal behavior, master cat groomers, veterinary professionals, and trained foster hosts for cat adoption agencies. We’re committed to the highest standards of care for your cat and for your peace of mind. We bring our high standards of care to each visit. Like you, we want the best for your cat(s).

Cats in the City is fully bonded and insured.

What to Expect from Every Visit

Bringing our High Standard of Care Into Your Home

During each visit, we provide food and water for your cat(s), medicate as directed (oral medication, topical cream, injection, subcutaneous fluid, etc), clean the litter box, clean any pet-related messes and provide plenty of love and playtime for your cat.

At no extra charge, we will also make sure your home receives care as well. We’ll bring in the mail and newspaper, water the plants, rotate lights, check locks and security systems, take the trash can to the curb and back again and perform other household chores.
