Cat Sitting

catservices

A pet care professional visits and cares for your cat in the comfort of your own home. No more transporting your feline to and from pet hotels; no more kennels and cages; and no more relying on your neighbors, friends or relatives. Cat sitting is a wonderful way for you to have peace of mind knowing that your darling feline is being well cared for while you are away on a business trip or family vacation.

Each visit includes fresh food and water and we scoop and freshen the litter box. And, very important: we provide plenty of love, play time, and treats (if allowed). During our visit we will also perform basic house sitting services such as mail retrieval, rotation of lights, plant watering, vacuuming as needed, and taking out the trash.

One of the benefits included with our services is Virtual Imprints which sends you instant notification via email as soon as our team member arrives at your home.  See next section below for more information.

  • $28 per visit for 30 minutes, $3 for each additional cat
  • $45 per visit for 60 minutes, $3 for each additional cat
 

Real-Time Photo and Note Updates

virtual imprints

Whiskers at Home uses the Virtual Imprints services, designed to email you with visit recaps and “real time” arrival and departure times of your pet sitter as s/he visits your home to care for your kitties.

With the use of a QR scannable card that you will receive and their mobile phone, the sitter simply scans the “In” code on the QR card when they enter your home and the “Out” code on the card when they leave. When you are home you simply keep the card someplace safe, such as your refrigerator door, until you need your sitter’s services again.

  • During each visit you will be receiving up to 3 emails within a 40 minute period. If at any time these emails become too much you can choose to receive only the visit recaps.
  • When we confirm your trip via email we will provide you with a two hour time frame when Whiskers At Home will be arriving to visit with your kitties.
If you have additional questions about our arrival times please let us know.

Other Services

Subcutaneous Fluids

Administering SQ fluids is one of our provided services when we care for your cat while you are away. But we can also provide this service when you are in town, saving you and your cat the stress of making multiple trips to the vet each week and letting your cat stay in the comfort of his own home.

  • $26 per visit
Key Service

Whiskers At Home will obtain two keys from you at the initial consultation and safeguard the keys until our services are no longer necessary. If you are not comfortable with us keeping your keys on file, you will be charged an additional fee each time we need to obtain and return them to you. Keeping keys on file with us can be helpful if you find yourself booking a last-minute getaway trip with no time to meet with us. Also, if you become locked out of your home you will know we have extra keys for you!

Should you decide to opt-out of the key service our fee schedule to pick up or drop off keys is as follows:

  • $28 per trip (Monday – Friday from 8am-6pm)
  • $45 per trip for after-hours trips
  • $10 for key return via U.S. Mail (Whiskers At Home will drop the keys off in person unless you choose this option)
