FAQs about our sitters

How are your sitters selected?

Every sitter at The Comforted Kitty is selected for their years of cat care experience, excellent customer service, and proven exceptional work ethic. Furthermore, we are proud to pay a living wage in order to attract and retain the best caregivers.

All of our partner cat sitters are screened and selected via a rigorous three-part interview process, an extensive reference check, and must pass a criminal background check too. Furthermore, they are covered under our commercial liability insurance and bonding policies.

Have questions? Shoot us an email (info@comfortedkitty.com) or call/text us (925-494-0485)

Will I get to meet my sitter beforehand?

Absolutely! In fact, we require an initial consultation / meet-and-greet with you as a new client so that the sitter can come to your home and interact with both you and your cat, to make sure there’s a good fit. It also is an opportunity for the cat sitter to familiarize themselves with the entire visit and care routine, retrieve your house keys, and ask you any questions they might have. It’s also appropriate in this meeting for either party to mention any concerns that might exist so that both you and your sitter are best prepared for the sittings. We assign the same sitter for your entire trip so that you will have met the person entering your home and not have someone new each visit.

How many sitters will be caring for my cat?

We believe it is very important for a sitter to develop a relationship with our human and feline clients. In fact, it’s really beneficial for all when the sitter is able to form a strong bond with your cat. Therefore, only your one assigned sitter (the person you meet at the initial consultation) will be entering your home to care for your cat. Unlike many other pet sitting companies and dog walking apps that are popular these days, you will always know ahead of time who is coming into your home and we won’t ever bring another person or animal into your home. No bait and switches here!

Have questions? Shoot us an email (info@comfortedkitty.com) or call/text us (925-494-0485)

Will I have the same sitter each time I use your services?

While we do assign a sitter as your primary sitter — and strive to have that person care for your cat each trip — we cannot guarantee their availability each time. This can be due to such factors as illness, personal obligations, vacations, or other scheduling conflicts. If we do have to assign a substitute sitter to help you out, you will always get to meet that person beforehand to see they are a good fit with your cat too, and also go over the whole visit care routine with them. And rest assured… the sitter will ALWAYS be a The Comforted Kitty sitter who is background checked, insured, bonded, and fully vetted. Additionally, all of your cat care routine and contact information is stored securely in our pet sitting software so that regardless of which sitter helps, they will always have the most up-to-date information to complete the care — and execute the visits — properly without any confusion.

Absolutely. Check out our Happy Clients page, as well as our Yelp, Google, and Facebook review pages. Lot’s of our current clients are eager to share their experience using our professional cat sitting services!

Kim M.
I have always lived with and cared for at least one cat. Most recently, Mr. Purrkins was my housemate. He was ill for the last year and a half of his life. Not ready to adopt another, I miss the sweet balance of dependence and independence in cats. I look forward to meeting and caring for cats because I enjoy their unique personalities and dispositions. I recently retired from a career in education. Now I have more time to spend doing things that delight me, like gardening, walking, swimming, and caring for cats!

"What I like most about cats is their calming presence and empathic nature. Cats possess a remarkable sensitivity to the emotions and energies of those around them, often displaying an intuitive understanding of other's experiences."
Meow there! My name is Michael Stone, and I am your purrrfect cat-sitting extraordinaire! Each day, I wake up to the delightful task of feeding several hungry kitties, as I have been chosen by the feline world to be their humble caretaker. My journey began years ago when a feral feline took shelter under my back porch and surprised me with a litter... and that's when my love for cats truly blossomed! She became "The Feral Matriarch" the foundation of our harmonious family of feline fanatics! Beyond my feline adventures, I am a proud 33-year-old Marine Corps veteran and a graduate from ASU. Timeliness, responsiveness, dependability, and trustworthiness are values I hold dear, and for the past six years, I’ve successfully owned and operated my own cleaning company. However, now it's time to take a break, stretch my paws, and care for the cats! I have extensive experience working in residential environments, often independently, and have proven to be a capable caretaker and custodian who understands the significance of a well- maintained home and a content kitty while you're away. When I'm not delighting in the company of cats, you'll often find me exploring the great outdoors.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Took wonderful care of my cat. Great communication and dedication. Highly recommend Michael!” – Kerry K. (Mesa)

“Emily and I loved the updates and pics you sent while we were away. We could tell she was relaxed / having a good time and appreciate you visiting everyday! You helped make our travel even better since we didn’t have to worry about her when we were away.” -Will Z. (Gilbert)

Elizabeth J.
I have loved cats for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of playing with my grandfather's many cats and just being fascinated with and enamored of them. Since then, I have shared my home with many feline friends as well as caring for others' cats. I'm currently fostering my third litter of the summer for a local rescue and have helped support cat welfare efforts in other ways whenever I can. I love cats' beauty and independence, and also how loving they can be on their terms. When not spoiling my own two pet cats I do some editing work part-time and volunteer for a hospice by visiting patients and providing respite to their families.

Mickey W.
"What I like most about cats is that they each have their own unique personality. I like how they clean themselves, and when they bump up against you. And who doesn’t like it when they purr?:
I have always liked animals, especially cats. My greatest accomplishment as a child was to talk my parents into letting me get a kitten. I read about how to take care of them and promised I would, which I did. I loved that cat, and he became part of our family. I was a social worker for many years and pet sat for coworkers, taking care of their cats and dogs. I’ve had many cats throughout my life, including two who lived with me for almost two decades each. PJ was my BCF. She lived at a residential facility where I was working, and gave birth to three kittens in my coworker’s office. They came to live with me, and I kept her and found other homes for the kittens. We had many adventures throughout the 17 years that we had together. Beverly was the other cat who I had for many years. I adopted her when she was a tiny kitten and was home with her when she died 18 years later. I have two little dogs now, and we go on lots of walks together. I would be honored to spend time with your cat or cats and I can be counted on to do whatever needs to be done while you are away from home.

Thao P.
Enthusiastic young professional with know how cat knowledge. In other words, I love fluffy friends of the feline variety! It would be such a joy to look after your loved little babies. Nothing brings more joy to my day than petting cats and kitties. I grew up with a tabby cat name Boba. He likes to play fetch with rolled up plastic bags and roll around in the dirt. Then we got a mini Boba who we named MilkTea and she’s quirky and spazzy and has extra toe beans. I loved coming home to these kitties. They now live with my younger sister and cannot be separated. I currently do not have a pet and misses having a fluffy ball around. I work from home so my friends sometimes would drop their animals off at my house so we can keep each other company. Outside of my fondness for cat, my hobbies include rock climbing, BJJ, and reading.

I am an older lady who has had dogs and cats all my life. I am retired and available pretty much anytime. I have worked with animal rescues and have fostered many cats and dogs in my home. I have stayed at clients' homes to spoil their dogs and cats while they’re away. I enjoy meeting clients and their fur babies. All the cats are so different from each other. It is fun to watch how they each connect with me.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We left town for Christmas, and Anne took care of our three kitties. She was great. We met her before we left town and went through their schedule and such. She was very attentive and did a great job with the kitties. She took such good care of our fur babies! We’ll definitely use The Comforted Kitty again!” – Jake P. (Mesa)

Polina B.
"I love how personal cats are, and how each personality develops the longer you know the cat. I’ve always admired how forward they can be, leaving no guessing as to what they’re communicating. They’re also simply the best."
"Hi! My name is Polina. I’ve been a cat lover my whole life and have always found them to be the most fascinating pet. Growing up, I had my own kitties and was always surrounded by family members and friends who had them too. I would watch my aunts' cats and dogs for days at a time and would make sure they were fed and had clean litter. I got to spend my last few weeks in my hometown cat sitting my piano professors cats, Jeffrey and Sally Anne. They have such differing personalities, and it was the best experience before moving off to Arizona. I currently love on my friends cats as I go through my busy schooling completing my masters degree at ASU. I am studying collaborative piano, so I love playing piano and exploring different music genres and experiences around town. I also love thrifting, and have very quickly started a collection of cat trinkets."

Angie D.
"My favorite thing about cats is how different their personalities are; it’s fascinating to learn all the different ways they communicate their moods and needs, and what makes each of them feel safe, excited, and loved."
My name is Angie and I’m a writer, teacher, and artist living in Phoenix, Arizona. I’ve been a devoted cat servant ever since a kitten moved into the tree outside my window and made me realize that my whole life spent assuming I was a dog person was a lie. I now work as a cat sitter and live with an adopted Torbie named Ro. She has endless energy, and loves climbing the walls, playing with toys, and stirring up trouble to get my attention so she can then climb into my arms for some cuddles and neck scratches. I am friendly, calm, tidy, and detail-oriented, and I enjoy giving regular updates to my clients and their families. With years of cat care experience as a sitter and foster caregiver, I understand just how important play, socialization, and stability are to their well-being and environment. I’m also experienced with administering oral medications, injections, ointments, and other treatments, so you can trust your loved one is in good hands. I really look forward to meeting you and your unique pets, and to learning how I can best support them during your time away!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Troy did a great job taking care of our 3 cats for a week. The website does a good job of capturing all the needed information and Troy paid us a visit prior to our departure to make sure we were a good match. He was very professional and we could tell immediately that he loved cats and his job.” – Jim R. (Phoenix)

“I was so worried about leaving our rambunctious boys for weekends, but I’m so glad I found the comforted kitty. Troy in particular has been such a great asset to us when we are away. Our cats love him (and one of our cats doesn’t like anyone). He makes sure we know they are doing well and sends us great pictures.” – Sarah M. (Phoenix)

“An incredibly professional cat sitting service. I had to leave my apartment for 5 days and was very worried about the well being of my cat. So I booked with this company and it was a great decision. The application was very thorough, meaning that my sitter would be well informed about all the nuances of my cat. My sitter (Troy) was awesome! Every time he came to visit my cat he gave me a brief status update along with a few photos. I am using them again while I am gone for the holidays. For anyone with worries about leaving your cat alone while you are out on vacation, I highly encourage you to book with the Comforted Kitty.” – Ben C. (Phoenix)

Jenny H.
"Cats are the perfect creation and feel honored when they allow us to love them. My lifelong love and compassion for kitty cats has never changed. Animals make us better humans and feel fortunate to have grown-up in a household with many different types of animals, but quickly grew to love cats the best."
Hello, I am Jenny a Tucson native and resident. Growing up in Tucson, my family always had multiple pets in our household. However, I developed a strong connection exclusively to cats, which turned into a lifelong love of cats. I believe my passion for animals came from my parents' love and compassion for animals. My experience in care ranges from caring for my animals throughout my life. Volunteering at a no-kill cat sanctuary where I worked at the sanctuary and fostered cats and kittens in my home. In addition to my shelter volunteerism, I foster cats and kittens with our county animal care center. The fosters I took care of through the county animal care center were primarily sick or injured cats that otherwise would have had a tough time recovering in a large, overcrowded shelter. I would provide care until my fosters were ready to meet their forever family, which I found very rewarding.

Guadalupe S.
Hello! My name is Guadalupe (Lupe for short) Santillan and I'm a Cat Sitter Specialist. I have a great passion for animals. Since little, I've owned a lot of different species including dogs, cats, chickens, birds, and more. I knew that always wanted to work with pets. In 2012, I began working at my local veterinary clinic and since then I have been in the veterinary field. Currently I work for the University of Arizona, College of Veterinary Medicine. I have a lot of experience taking care of dogs and cats which includes administering medications. Even though I love all animals, I've realized that cats are the ones that I feel I'm more attached to. I love their personalities and just how they are! From kittens to senior cats, they all deserve special care and attention. I'll make sure your cat gets daily visits, new food and water, litter cleaned, and more! I'm very caring, friendly and will communicate with you at all times to let you know that your cat is doing well. I'll treat your cats as if they are my own!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I am so happy with the services by The Comforted Kitty, and my cat sitter Lupe was nothing short of incredible. Before our planned trip, one of our cats had a blood clot which led him to suddenly need a lot of medications for management and of course we were worried to leave him, but the minute I met Lupe and saw her love for my cats, her attention to detail, and confidence to provide the care and deliver the medications, I was immediately put at ease. She was such a blessing and we had immense peace of mind knowing our babies were in the best hands! Everything down to the app used and communications has been so easy and professional, and I have been overall so impressed with the company. Highly recommended to use this company for your cat sitting needs, especially Lupe!” – Vanessa F. (Tucson)

“Thank you so much, we feel so comfortable leaving them in your hands!” -Vanessa F. (Tucson)

Howdy my name is Luke, My cat story (hisstory): I wasn’t allowed to have cats growing up because my dad and sister were very allergic. I always wanted and asked for a cat.

I moved to Arizona for college in 2019 and now I’m trying to pursue my passions and have work that makes me happy. I’m a 22 year old cat sitter, biologist, entrepreneur, artist, and community builder. I hope it goes without say I love cats deeply. I’m a cat person at heart. Cats love me because I’m just like them haha I have experience interacting with many different cat personalities and temperaments I am Knowledgeable about cat behavior, communication, and signals.
