Who will be caring for my cat(s) while I am away?

I will personally be caring for your cat(s). so they will not need to adjust to different sitters with each visit. 

As of Summer 2023, I now have coverage for added, last-minute visits.

 

How will I know my Cat has been cared for during each visit?

        We will be providing you with an email summary with pictures and videos after each visit. Included in each summary will be bullet points of what had been completed during the visit. If you prefer a text just let me know, and I will accommodate.

 

Do you live close to me?

 I live in the Gowanus area and make house calls to the surrounding neighborhoods. Neighborhoods would include Gowanus, Park Slope, South Slope, Greenwood Heights, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens & Part of Windsor Terrace. 

 

What are your visiting hours?

My house calls begin at 9 am and the last call is 6 pm. Monday - Friday

9 am - 6 pm Saturday

10 am - 6 pm Sunday

My mission is to ensure my clients are happy with time slots. 

What is the time frame for each visit? 

Each visit will be between 20 to 30 minutes

*Time frames are dependent on day scheduling and logistics between you and other cat clients.

 

Can I schedule 2 visits a day?

*Due to the current high volume of bookings~ I can only accommodate 1 visit per day, per client.

The only exceptions will be on NON-Holiday visits for kitties under 6 months  & kitties that require AM &/or PM medication.

2x a day Visits will be 4 - 6 hours apart  

If your kitty is on a wet food-only diet 2x a day, I do have a workaround option to keep them on schedule and well-fed..

 

Can I request a specific around time of day for visits?

*Time frames are dependent on day scheduling and logistics between you and other cat clients.

AM  visits can be between 9 AM - 12 PM / PM visits can be between 3 PM - 6 PM

Can I schedule an introduction to learn more about your service? Is it free?

Yes, you can schedule an introduction by clicking 'Schedule an Introduction' on this site's home page. Introductions are free and are required before scheduling kitty visits.

This would benefit both of us. It will also allow me to introduce myself to your kitty if you choose to hire me.

     My goal is to make your kitty relaxed with each visit and for you to be at ease knowing I will do my best in caring for your

best friend.
