What Our Team Members Say About Being A Cat Sitter At Whiskers at Home

"My favorite part of the job is that we get paid to hang out with cats! It really does not take long to develop a bond with each of them. I also love knowing that the clients get to go on vacation and not worry about their pets or their home. If I ever hit an issue, it is easy to get in touch with Jessica for assistance."

"Some other things I appreciate is that we have occasional employee dinners and it's always fun to see everyone. Being a cat sitter for Whiskers at Home is a fun job for people who want to manage their own time and provide quality care without having to be micromanaged."

"There are many small detailed tasks that pet owners can choose to have included with our services. It is impossible to remember each one’s preferences, so it becomes important to learn to use all the helpful tech that Jessica has come to implement. Some field practice and a verbal or written check list, and I have gotten it down."

"Jessica is a wonderful leader to have because she thinks of everything! Whatever trouble you might be having with an aspect of a home, a cat, or a customer, Jessica has seen it all before. She is three steps ahead of any given problem and will make sure you have the resources and knowledge you need going into them. Make sure you keep her in the loop so that she can work with you!"

"During my time as a cat sitter, I learned so much about caring for cats that I hadn’t known, such as how to give cats medication and how to get a shy cat to trust you even when their parents are gone. I got close to so many of the cats I watched, and it was so fun to get to see them every time their families left town. I also learned how to take better photos."

"Being a cat sitter is a dream job for any cat lover, but it’s definitely not as easy as people might think. It requires excellent time management skills so that the cats you watch have all their needs met every day, the ability to problem solve and multitask, and a love of being in your car. The Whiskers at Home team are lovely people who were a pleasure to work with. They are all responsible, reliable, and dedicated cat lovers."

"Several years ago, I was keeping my eyes peeled for the perfect job opportunity to lure me out of an early retirement. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw the Craig's List posting for Whiskers At Home. I was thrilled that WAH offered cat specific care. I'm absolutely not going to use the phrase Crazy Cat Lady to describe myself, but who am I kidding, I totally am! Jessica is amazing to work for and with. Her genuine care and support she shows her team and clients (human and furry) is so special. I love the diversity of our amazing clients and their kitties. I love that our responsibilities extend beyond petting and playing with cats. We also get the opportunity to provide care and comfort to the young and old, robust and unwell, and naughty and purrfect. I've never regretted a second of my time with Whiskers At Home."
