“Make sure you set up a consultation with your Pet Caregiver before the big day”
Our #1 tip for making trips away easier on your cat is to make sure you set up a consultation with your Pet Caregiver before the big day. Cats have so many different personalities and you want to sure your Pet Caregiver and cat are fully acquainted with you present.
This is less threatening than a stranger barging into your home without mommy or daddy present.
This is also a great opportunity to go over any hiding locations. Some cats get very creative! We once found a cat cuddled up under the comforter, in between the pillows.
Does your cat make a run for it when the door opens? Where do you want your sitter to discard the waste? Are there any special toys your cat likes? Any special treats?
You will also want to go over food, bowl location. Does your lock require a special jingle? Make sure the keys work before giving them to your sitter. If you have plant life, make sure to point them out, especially if you will be away for a long period of time.
Most importantly, if your kitty requires medication, it very important you review this with your sitter in advance.
This short meet and greet is a wonderful opportunity for your pet sitter to learn all about your furry baby!
