Why We Are Better Than Boarding

Benefits of In-Home Care

Traditional pet care consisted of taking your cat to the nearest kennel facility to be boarded. It's convenient but most cats hate it. Cats strongly attach to their own space and so removing them and putting them in a small cage in an unfamiliar environment is a recipe for traumatization to your cat.

  •   Daniel at The Comforted Kitty is a wonderful catsitter! We initially booked his services for a quick weekend trip, and we have already scheduled him to come back for the rest of the trips that we are taking this year. He is very friendly and professional and made sure that all of our concerns were addressed so that our cat, Stella, received the best care possible. We really appreciated the daily updates with adorable pictures of Stella so that we knew she was doing well. We would recommend Daniel and The Comforted Kitty to anyone and are so glad to have found such a friendly and reliable catsitter!

      We had a trip coming up, and our kitten will be home alone for the first time.  So glad we found The Comforted Kitty!

    They are true professionals and you can just tell that they really care for cats.  Daniel, the owner, was super responsive in all of his communications.  And Poppy, our sitter, took such great care of our little kitty.  We loved getting detailed updates from Poppy, and the pics showed how our little guy loved his play time with her!  The peace of mind knowing our kitten is doing well at home during our travel makes The Comforted Kitty true to its name.

    They will definitely be our go-to sitter whenever needed, and also highly recommend to those who are looking for a trustworthy and dependable sitter for their kitties.

  •   Daniel took care of our cat for a little over a week while we were away and out of cell phone range. He was very professional from the start and the detailed contract gave me peace of mind. He sent great daily updates and went above and beyond to bond with our very shy kitty. By the end of the week, our kitty was sitting in his lap and licking his hands. I know he could not have accomplished this without spending significant time and effort. Definitely would be my first choice of cat sitting service in the future.

      We moved recently to the East Bay and found Daniel as a sitter through recommendation from a friend. We've used the service twice and so far are very satisfied. Daniel takes awesome pictures and gives detailed updates in a timely manner. And our cats seemed to be happy when we returned home from a weekend away.

    Will highly recommend their service for any cat-owning weekend warrior like us!

  •   I have three 10 month old kitties. I recently moved to the Bay Area from New Jersey and did not know anyone who could help with sitting my cats. I really did not want to board them and leave them in an unfamiliar setting so fortunately I found The comforted Kitty. Not only were the kitties comfortable in their own home but I had the ease of knowing that they were being well taken care of by Daniel and then subsequently  Irene  on my second trip away from home.  I received very thoughtful and thorough updates through out the time that I was away. Then not only were my cats well taken care of but also my garden and mail were attended to !  Upon arriving home everything was as I had left it and the cats were absolutely fine. I highly recommend their services ,

      I contacted Daniel about a week before going out of town on Labor Day weekend, and he was very prompt in replying. The process was well organized and he was very thorough in getting all the information he needed to take good care of my two cats. I really appreciated the detailed updates and photos he sent with every visit. Highly recommended!

      We've been using The Comforted Kitty for over a year now, mainly for short trips. We have always been pleased with the thoughtful way that Daniel has with kitties. Our most recent vacation was more than a week long and Daniel really was wonderful. In addition to the expected feeding and litter box cleaning, he found ways to entertain our cats, reporting daily via text (with pictures) about his visits. He also took in our mail and dealt with trash and recycling. Highly recommended.

  •   We went on a 2 week bike trip in Europe and had Comforted Kitty and Betsy take care of our two older cats, plants, etc. The whole process was extremely well organized and we felt very comfortable having Betsy watching over the cats. We received daily updates and videos on the cats which was very reassuring. They did an excellent job and we will definitely be utilizing Comforted Kitty services again.

      Daniel is an amazing cat sitter and business owner. I was hesitant at first to use a cat sitting service, but when my cat needed care while I was gone on a long trip I contacted The Comforted Kitty. Every single time I interact with them they are responsive, courteous and very professional. Plus, their online website calendar and registration system is easy to use! Daniel is wonderful with my cat, takes good care of her while I am gone, and even sends a daily text update! He is worth every penny and does a great job.

  •   There is a reason they have a solid five star rating. I was so nervous about needing to find a new cat-sitter and so at ease after our initial consultation, hah hah I think I was the one "comforted" :)  I really appreciate their good listening skills and forms to be filled out. I also found that from Canada (who would think) that I wasn't able to receive text updates on the cats, I quickly emailed Daniel and was in receipt of updates via email instead in a matter of moments. That's customer service and so appreciated!
    I got a good vibe from my cats when I returned home. They weren't frantic and missing me too badly.  Their website is really cool as well, easy to use and professional. I would highly recommend this service.

      Daniel took excellent care of our kitty, Misha, while my sister and I were away for a long weekend. I really appreciated his prompt reply to my inquiry and his ability to fit in visits on short notice over a busy holiday weekend. Daniel stopped by for a thorough consultation beforehand and sent great updates via text every day, including photos and video. He was patient and calm with our shy cat who is often anxious around new people, and he eventually won him over. Professional, thoughtful, and empathetic service! So happy to have found Daniel and The Comforted Kitty.

  •   We couldn't be happier with The Comforted Kitty. Daniel and Poppy are the sweetest people and our cat LOVES them! We use their services frequently and each time they've provided an exceptional service. We just returned home from a long weekend getaway and our cat greeted us and went right back to sleep. He was super relaxed and we know it's because of Poppy's exceptional care. Not only does she do the "basics" like feeding and cleaning the litter, she also plays w. our cat, brushes him and cuddles with him. Daniel and Poppy really go above and beyond for making cats and their owners happy! Thank you very much xxx

      What can I say, if you desire peace of mind when you are away, than I strongly encourage you to look no further.

    We first met Daniel who owns The Comforted Kitty, along with one of his sitters Betsy.. Two purebred, spoiled out of their minds Bengals that generally take the safe route and "run and hide" when an intruder enters the house :).  

    Both our guys, sat tight, in fact were curious and immediately warmed-up to Betsy and Daniel, even showing-off for them on their exercise wheel.  Go figure

    Daniel asks intelligent, granular questions regarding your CAT's care, truly from A-Z..  Licensed, Bonded, Insured...  Certainly a plus, but we would have hired Daniel and Betsy regardless of the paperwork, as well we want the best of our family members when we are away.. :).

    Daniel and team only service cats.  This was a huge factor for my wife and I, as I would prefer not to have our sitter enter our home, after just spending time with a Golden Retriever or two.  Our guys would go batty....

    Note:  I am not big on social media or providing reviews,but Daniel - Comforted Kitty deserve it.

    Thanks for doing what you do Daniel, it is appreciated!!

  •   Barbara is one serious kitty whisperer!  Our two cats immediately took to her and seem to know when they are getting a special visit from her! We love her updates, her punctuality, and the awesome cute photos.  We had a different sitter for many years whom we loved who moved away.  Thank goodness we (and our cuties) were able to find The Comforted Kitty

      Howdy cat parents! I recently moved back to Oakland after being in San Francisco. My former cat sitters in SF don't cover Oakland, and I no longer have a roommate to sit for my best furry friend, Squirrel. So, I looked online and found The Comforted Kitty. I really, really, really love that they only sit for cats. My last cat sitters (although lovely people) were more focused on dogs, and us cat guardians know that cats are not dogs and have different needs. The Comforted Kitty understands that.

    When Daniel and Barb came to my place for the initial visit, I knew they were the right people to take care of Squirrel. Squirrel, while not a fan of all other cats, does need human interaction on a daily basis with lots cuddles. Barb came to my house and, if I remember correctly, was wearing shoes that had cats painted on them. "Crazy cat lady" status was achieved in my mind, and I was sold! :) Also, Squirrel is initially shy with new strangers. She dislikes new and loud noises. Barb did not try to force her attention and let Squirrel come to her in her own time. A cat person. I loved it. Barb has sat for me (and Squirrel) three times now, and I have a few longer trips coming up this year. Needless to say, The Comforted Kitty is my go-to. I don't worry about Squirrel when I'm gone anymore. They send lovely photos and very detailed updates every day. I know Squirrel is happy and comfortable with Barb. Also, they clean up any cat accidents if need be, water my plants, and bring in my mail, too.

    And, as a side note, their online booking system is easy, quick, and user-friendly.

    Now that I've said all this, just book them if you need a cat sitter. They are really the best.

  •   This is my first yelp review. I wanted to write this to help other people who care deeply for their cats find a proper sitter.

    We were very worried about leaving "Obi," our six month old kitty with a sitter and giving a stranger access to our apartment for an entire week. The comforted kitty put us at ease so we could relax on our vacation. The online registration was very thorough and each sitter is insured.

    Our sitter Barbara was amazing. It was obvious she loved cats and was dedicated to their well being when she came by for the meet and greet with Obi. She took down a ton of notes about care for Obi and also about our other needs as we had her water our plants and take care of our fish tank while we were gone.

    Her daily updates were very detailed and she sent us a number of pictures after each visit. When we returned, Obi looked very healthy and well cared for. It was obvious Barb had taken great care of him as well as our apartment.

    I highly recommend Barbara and the comforted kitty. We will definitely use them again when we need kitty sitting. Thank you Barb!!

      Having four furry beasts to contend with I couldn't have asked for a better sitter than Poppy! She tended to their individual needs and when we came home we got looks of 'oh, you guys went away? We hadn't noticed! Great communication throughout while we were away. I have, and will be, booking with these again!

  •   My husband and I needed a cat sitter last minute since our friend had to cancel. After doing some research online, I decided to contact The Comforted Kitty. Initially it looked like they might not have availability due to the somewhat last minute request, but Daniel and Helen both went out of their way to fit us into their schedule. The whole process was very easy and both Daniel and Helen, our cat sitter, were excellent at communicating with us quickly and often. We could not have been happier with Helen. She was wonderful with our 8 month old kitten and we felt completely safe leaving him in her hands. She gave us detailed updates each day we were gone, and included pictures. We will definitely be using The Comforted Kitty for our future cat sitting needs. We are so relieved to have found a reliable, trustworthy company to take care of our little guy when we're away.

      Another great visit from Barb. She is through, conscientious, and we love her so much we're upgrading to two visits a day for all our future vacations.
