What is cat sitting?

Cat sitting is to have a trusted cat sitter care for your cat while you are away, either at his / her home or yours.

Why consider cat sitting?

There are times where you’ll need to be away, whether it’s on a holiday or a business trip that you can’t avoid. Sometimes, it may even be an emergency, such as a visit to the hospital, or a quick trip to settle some matters. As much as you want to, it’s hard to bring your cat along with you, and may even be inconvenient.

Instead of scrambling to find a friend or family member who can take care of your cat, you can get a reliable cat sitter to look after your cat in just a few clicks. You’ll no longer have to ask your neighbour for help, nor worry if your cat is in good hands.

Cats are adorable and sensitive pets. If your cat has special needs that should be taken into consideration, having a cat sitter will ensure that it is taken into account.

How do you find a good cat sitter?

An Experienced Cat Sitter

Although cats are considered ‘low-maintenance’ versus dogs, your cat might have its own special needs and preferences. That’s why having someone that has either owned a cat or is patient enough to take care of one is crucial to ensuring your cat’s well-being. Here at Furwy, we have numerous cat sitters that fit that criteria.
