Catty Cats, a licensed and insured pet sitting service, has been serving Snohomish and northern King Counties for cat sitting and home sitting since 2005.
It’s easy, and here are some things to know to get started. We’ll need to meet so you can introduce me to your kitties and their routines. I’ll get your emergency contact information including your veterinarian. I’ll also require your keys (to keep for future visits or we can arrange to return) or key codes, and a post-dated check for the first day that I begin your service. Please feel free to leave your back-up notes, but I will be taking notes while I’m there with you.
While you are away, you can expect your kitties to be in great hands! Notes on what I’m observing, and photos via email.
We hire Brenda to take care of our cat any time we go away for 3 days or longer. She loves cats, and they clearly love her -- Brenda goes above and beyond the requirements all the time. She always checks to make sure we're back on time so the cat won't be left without food in case of a cancelled flight.
We once had an ice storm occur while we were out, rendering our neighborhood (up a hill) inaccessible by car. Amazingly, she parked at the bottom of the hill and walked up (at least half a mile) to take care of our cat. We'd have never expected such a thing and would have been fine with her just leaving extra food out for him the day before, and it makes her devotion to cats quite obvious. We've been hiring her for every trip ever since.
We’ve been using Brenda for years to look after Calvin when we’re traveling. Not only does she come in to feed our poor deserted kitty, but she plays with him, brings him toys, brings all kinds of different foods for him to try, and generally spoils him. I get the distinct impression that he’s never that happy to see us come home.
In addition, Brenda keeps a great eye on the house and misses nothing, whether it’s some plants that need watering, a car parked nearby that doesn’t seem to belong, or a package delivery that needs to be signed for. Above all else, Brenda loves cats. She sends us photos of ours while we’re away, like a proud mom, and genuinely seems to love his company. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
We can wholeheartedly recommend Brenda, owner of Catty Cats, to care for your pet while away.
Our cat Hopi, loves Brenda, who has a great understanding and connection with cats. Not only does she take care of feeding and litter but also plays with him as if he were her cat, providing the human interaction necessary while pet owners are away. Brenda has visited for both brief and longer vacations.
Brenda stays in touch, letting us know if she has any questions and often sends updates on Hopi with pictures.
Brenda has cared for Hopi for over 5 years with complete joy, which gives us total confidence when away.
