How much is the decision in pet care providers keeping you from leaving your feline family member without worry?


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 hat 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

  •   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!

      I can't say enough good things about our cat sitter, Barbara, she is wonderful with our cats.... and even more so with us. we hate going out of town and leaving our kitties behind, but Barbara always has photos and updates for us while we are away. We wouldn't use any other service!

  •   The Comforted Kitty is a gift to all cat parents in the Bay Area! Me and my partner recently adopted a kitten, who we fell in love with, and who quickly became a member of our little family! However, me and my partner had a busy year ahead of us and had planned upcoming trips. We suddenly had a dilemma and the idea of leaving our kitten alone with someone we didn't trust did not sit well with us (we are still making friends in the Bay Area and don't know any sitters).

    Fortunately, the Comforted Kitty gave us peace of mind while we prepared for our trips and were away. From our first correspondence, Daniel and his team were extremely professional, thorough, and showed nothing but care for our kitten. It is evident that the entire Comforted Kitty team is passionate, knowledgable, and has nothing but the best of intentions for cats and their clients.

    Poppy was our sitter, and is wonderful! Poppy asked us thorough questions ahead of time to make sure our kitten was cared for and that everything ran smoothly. This meant so much to us as we prepared for our trip. Poppy also sent us pictures twice a day while we were away! We genuinely looked forward to her pictures and detailed updates everyday. This truly made our trip that much easier and enjoyable knowing that our kitten was in such caring hands!

    We are thankful to have found the Comforted Kitty. We had such a great experience that we have booked services for our trips for the remainder of the year! We no longer have to worry what to do while we are away - thank you Comforted Kitty for that gift. I recommend the Comforted Kitty to all the fellow cat parents out there - from one cat parent to another, you will not be disappointed! Enjoy. :)

      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.

  •   I am so thankful for taking such a good care of our kitty while we were out of town. Looking at the photos of him sent by Poppy, I could tell that he opened up to her towards the end and was happy to see her.  We really loved the photos and notes sent to us everyday.

    They did everything we asked for so perfectly including watering plants.
    We are 100% satisfied and use their service again for sure!!

      I moved to Berkeley last July, along with my beloved Lila. I'm a shameless cat mom who is simply obsessed with my furry angel. I was so worried about leaving her with a new cat sitter, since she can be shy and would sometimes go on a near hunger strike when I was away. Daniel and Poppy first came to meet Lila, and had a detailed questionnaire about her habits and dietary needs. Poppy is the most caring and reliable cat sitter, and clearly enjoys spending time with the animals she visits. Lila LOVES her, as evidenced by the photos I receive whenever Poppy visits. She not only does the job of feeding her and cleaning the litter box. She brushes her, plays with her, and gives her so much love and affection. In short, I have blind trust in Poppy, I am so thankful to have found Daniel's service and highly recommend it!

  •   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're in Marin County, and The Comforted Kitty saved our sanity. Gotta agree with the reviewers who said that The Comforted Kitty is also about comforting the kitties' humans! Our usual sitter had flaked out. I contacted Daniel, we met him and Marleena and appreciated how they interacted with us and our cats, we went traveling with zero worries about any of them, got text & photo updates from Mar about how the cats did with each visit, and came back to well-cared-for kitties.

    There was one thing, before we left, that I thought was a problem that Daniel handled promptly, conscientiously, and -- when I eventually realized that it was no problem but simply, oops, MY misunderstanding -- very graciously. Class act, all the way.

    Slam-dunk 5 stars for due diligence, responsiveness, professionalism, attentiveness, kitty-care skills, integrity... For reals, add any rave-review adjective here and it would fit The Comforted Kitty. Daniel and his people are keepers.

  •   As over-protective cat parents we wanted to find a cat sitter that we could trust enough to be able to relax while on holiday and we hit the jackpot with Daniel and Samantha.

    Samantha has come to look after our fur baby twice now and she is incredibly reliable, thorough and loving. The daily photos and updates help us to relax knowing that Samantha has her covered. She is great at communicating with us so that if she is going to be coming at a slightly different time we know about it and won't freak out if we don't get the email at the normal time (yes, we are ridiculous). Knowing that Samantha is also trained to deal with cats veterinary needs means that we can update her on any medical needs and know that she will be able to spot anything out of the ordinary.

    Rather than picking up a shell-shocked cat from the cat hotel we get to return to our normal, happy cat. I can highly recommend Samantha if you are in the San Jose area and after meeting Daniel I am sure that all of the other cat sitters would do an equally amazing job.

      From the promptness in email response to the kitty "intake form..." an all-around truly professional service! Daniel runs his company not only as a businessman but obviously a cat lover and really covers all the bases. The questions on the initial form go over your kitty's likes, potential hiding places, vet information, and much more. Before I even met my cat sitter I was impressed!

    When we first met Poppy she listened attentively and respectfully to our long list of "kitty and house quirks." During our couple trips out of town, she took such loving care of our two cats and made sure to keep an eye on one that sometimes needs help finishing eating. She brushed and played with them and sent us a ton of pictures and detailed updates! We felt at ease knowing a true cat lover was hanging out with our boys and will continue to use Poppy and the Comforted Kitty whenever we leave town!

  •   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!

      Just came back from our 10 days vacation and leaving this review to thank you Daniel and Samantha for taking care of our cat while we were away.

    I am very satisfied with the service and highly recommend to any one who is looking for the cat sitting service.

    A few reasons:

    * Daniel's communication of making reservation was smooth, responsive and crystal clear.
    * Daniel and Samantha visited my house ahead of time to go through all details and instructions I have about my cat and the house. My cat is always hiding from strangers but she got bound with Daniel and Samantha right away when they first met.
    * Sam sent me detailed update with pictures after every visit.
    * Sam kept my cat's living area even tidier than I do.
    * Sam really cares. I asked her to drop the key in the mail box after last visit when we first met and she still sent me email to double checked before doing so. After second thought I asked her to hide the key somewhere accessible just in case. It was a small check in her email but I could tell that she was caring about my cat instead of blindly following the instructions.

  •   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!

      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!!

      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 ,

  •   Daniel was an integral part of my move to the Bay Area as I moved here with a sick older cat who was my best friend. He took on the job of watching her a few times for me as I traveled frequently for work and then took on the challenge of watching my very rambunctious cat and ridiculously dramatic and shy sweetheart of a kitten when my older girl passed away. Daniel's willingness to help with cat medicine was amazing and he was always very professional and organized with visits (more so than me...). His persistence with my kitten was so sweet, too--she finally did warm up to him! I feel like he is a friend to my cats now! Poppy also took on the challenge with my shy girl, who finally did come around again. Just working with Daniel and Poppy was SO great. The cats were always happy and I was never worried about them. If you're looking for above and beyond with pet sitting, definitely, this is the place. We recently moved out of the area but I HIGHLY recommend Daniel for your cat sitting needs!

      It is always so hard to find a kitty sitter! I was glad to find the Comforted Kitty.  They handled my request, their payment process, and the introduction of our great sitter, Poppy, with professionalism and attentiveness.

    Once we were traveling, Poppy gave us regular updates about how the cats were interracting with each other and with her.  It was always great to see pictures of them- Poppy got shots that showed each of their personalities!  We were happy to have confidence that someone who knows cats was taking care of our cat family. :)

  •   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

      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.
