Feline Friday - Start your own cat-sitting business
Just Cats In-home Cat-sitting Service is a service provided by myself for people who do not want their cats to go to a boarding kennel.I GO TO THE CAT.
There is no place like home when it comes to the cat because not only are we special to our kitty but so is all their favorite stuff such as their beds, window-sills, toys, chairs & the owner's bed if they are so allowed to snooze there.
Cats are not pack animals and prefer not to be placed where there are many unfamiliar animals & scents. Some cats will actually be so stressed that they will refuse to eat at the kennel which can become a very serious situation. If they are left at home, the familiarity of everything keeps them relaxed and comfortable.
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. The whole idea of my service is to keep the cat at home and less-stressed. Most cats will have 1 or 2 daily visits which include play-time. meals prepared, litter box cleaned, brushing and grooming & lots of bonding time. I recommend that the owner leave a radio on, a light where the cat spends most of it's time and a familiar piece of clothing from the owner for the cat to cuddle up on.
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. I have been providing cat care for 15 years.
If you've been thinking of it then JUST DO IT. You Will Love It!
