10 Signs Your Cat Loves Their Cat Sitter: Insights from Berkeley’s Best

by | Apr 3, 2024

Whether you’re exploring the stunning UC Berkeley campus, enjoying a stroll in Tilden Park, or savoring the vibrant atmosphere of the Gourmet Ghetto, you know that Berkeley is not just a place, but a community. It’s a community that, just like us, adores our feline friends.

Hello, fellow cat lovers! Dan McPartlan here from The Comforted Kitty, your go-to in-home cat sitting service in the beautiful Berkeley area. Today, I’m thrilled to share with you the signs your cat loves their cat sitter. Especially when you’re away embracing the unique charms of our locale.


Purring Galore:

When your cat purrs the moment their sitter walks in, it’s a clear sign of affection. Purring is the ultimate sign of contentment and trust, whether they’re lounging in the sunbeam by the bay window with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance or simply curled up on the couch.


Following Them Around:

If your cat acts like a little shadow to their sitter, following them from room to room, even to the bathroom, it’s a sure sign they’re smitten. It’s their way of saying, “You’re part of my Telegraph Avenue crew.”

Bringing Gifts:

While you might not be thrilled to receive a “gift” left by your front door, this gesture means your cat is trying to share their bounty from the urban jungle of Berkeley with their beloved sitter.


Slow Blinking:

Known as the “cat kiss,” slow blinking in the presence of their sitter is a sign of trust and affection. It’s like they’re saying, “I love chilling with you as much as I enjoy watching the squirrels in Live Oak Park.”



This is not just for affection but also a way of marking their sitter with their scent, saying, “You’re part of my North Berkeley clan now.”

Showing Their Belly:

If your cat rolls over and shows their belly to the sitter, it’s a huge sign of trust, considering the belly is the most vulnerable area. It’s as if they’re saying, “I trust you as much as the Berkeley community trusts local, organic produce.”



Often referred to as “making biscuits,” if your cat kneads on the sitter, it’s a behavior that stems from kittenhood contentment. It means your cat is as happy with their sitter as Berkeley folks are at the farmers market on a sunny Saturday morning.


Using Their Litter Box Regularly:

Cats can be private about their bathroom habits and may hold back if they’re uncomfortable. Regular use of the litter box in the sitter’s presence indicates they feel secure and at home.

Interactive Play:

If your cat eagerly participates in playtime, chasing that feather wand with the enthusiasm of a Cal student heading to a game at Memorial Stadium, it’s a clear indicator of their affection for their sitter.


Meowing and Chirping:

Cats typically meow and chirp to communicate with humans. If your cat is vocally expressive around their sitter, it’s their way of engaging in a little conversation, perhaps about the latest exhibit at the Berkeley Art Museum or their thoughts on the newest café in town.
