A monthly calendar, client book, cards to post daily and a bag full of cat-toys, treats & nip = 1 cat-sitter.
Some of my blogging friends have asked if I take the cats in to my home but I do not do that because I already have cats & a dog and it would not be as easy for the cat to adjust. My plan is to have a section of my home for cat-boarding but that will be in the future after we build our home in the country. That way, I can offer that service also.
If someone would like to start an in-home (client's home) cat-sitting service in their area, I would be happy to give you information that will help you get started. I think it would be great to have someone offer this in all cities so that cats can benefit from it and be much happier while their owners travel. If you love cats and would like to try a new business I recommend this highly. YOU WILL LOVE IT.
