Cats are often pretty independent animals and do what they want on their own terms. If you are going to be away from your home for more than 24 hours, though, even the most independent kitty still needs some love, attention, and a safety check. After all, your cat is a member of your family and you want to ensure they are safe and happy if you are away from home. Hiring a cat sitter is just what your kitty needs to keep them safe and content!
Don’t think that your cat needs a sitter? Think again! Cats are just like children in many ways and should not be left alone for more than 24 hours. Cats have a routine that they like to follow for their feeding schedule, play time, and alone time. Even if you’re going to be away, your cat will probably still insist on their normal routine. We all know kitties can get pretty upset if you aren’t paying attention when it’s time for food! Hiring a cat sitter is a great way to ensure your cat can stick to their usual food schedules.
Cats are also very particular and often do not like to go places other than home. You can save your cat from the stress of boarding them in an unfamiliar place by hiring a cat sitter. Your cat will be way happier staying in their own home with access to their own space, bed, and toys! When hiring a cat sitter, you won’t have to uproot your cat from home. Cats can also suffer from anxiety if they are alone too long. Having a cat sitter stop by will be a welcome presence so they can get some well-deserved attention and know they aren’t alone.
Hiring a cat sitter can also ensure that your cat being home alone doesn’t end in tragedy. Here are a few major reasons why you should not leave your cat home alone without daily check-ins:
Hiring a cat sitter is the best way to ensure your cat stays happy, healthy, and safe while you’re away. It will also relieve your stress and you can rest easy knowing your cat is content at home. Sadly, there have been many reports of owners leaving their cats home alone, only to return home and find their cat was sick, injured or had passed away due to severe depression or an unexpected accident. Don’t put your cat at risk by not having someone look in on your cat. Keep your furry family member safe and plan for their care while you’re away!
