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!

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!

I LOVE CATS !!…okay, I love all animals, but I have a special connection with cats. My name is Dara. I have been volunteering at a local nonprofit cat shelter / adoption center for the past twelve years. I am responsible for administering medications, and helping prepare abandoned cats for their future furever homes. I am a wire artist, and also enjoy gardening, and yoga (all of which are closely supervised by my own fur babies.)

"What I love most about cats is how cuddly they can be. Another thing I love most about cats is their little toe beans."
Cat mom of four. My fur babies are currently 6, 10, 11, and 19 years old. They all have been raised from 12-14 weeks old. Additionally, I have years of experience pet sitting friends cats, as well as small and large dogs. Also experienced in kitten bottle feeding and administering medicine to sick cats.

"What I like most about cats is that they all have their own unique personalities and are very smart. Also, they are a great comfort and stress reliever."
I moved here from California in 2018 and retired from County schools as a Job Developer / Employment Coach. I am an author of five books and a volunteer writer for my Solera Community where I swim during the summer. Don’t be surprised if I leave you a newsletter. I have always loved and owned cats including dogs. My real passion is with kittens and cats; however, I walk my neighbor’s dog Reilly in the spring and fall and take care of him when the owner leaves town. And sometimes watch cats in my community. What I like most about cats is that they all have their own unique personalities along with their independence. They are great comfort and stress relievers. My cat Diva was found at a gas station in Barstow and I adopted her through Pet Smart, took me three days to decide on who was the right one for me. Diva loves me but is afraid of all other people and runs anytime they come around, including the doorbell, which is sometimes on TV. Taking care of Diva requires a great deal of patience and love which Diva seems to appreciate and trust. It has been very difficult to take a selfie with her as she does not like to be picked up. But loves to sleep with me in bed and on my tummy when I lay on the couch. When I sit on the couch, she comes up and sits next to me. She has lots of ear itching and throws up weekly so she is high maintenance. However, she is very spoiled! God chose her for me because it takes special people to take care of special kitties. Cats are like horses; they know if you like them and if you can be trusted. Some of your kids may be special too or afraid of strangers, rest assure; I do not give up easy. I will do what I can to get them to trust me. I feel like Doctor Do Little, I talk to animals like people. I believe it is important for them to get used to my voice when I come to your home. It is amazing what cats hear and understand. Every time I tell my cat, it’s a great sunning day and she should go to the kitchen window and sun; it only takes a few minutes and she is there! So Amazing! Often, she understands more than my adult son. I consider myself to be highly organized and reliable. You can trust I will take care of your furry ones and your home with peace of mind. I know it can be weird to have strangers in your home, but I do what I would expect if I had someone come to my home and with the Comforted Kitty, You Are in The Best Care! Thank you for your trust in us!

"What I love most about cats is their intelligence, independence, and aloofness. I think it’s hilarious when a cat treats you like their “human minion.”
Growing up, my family always had at least one cat. One of my earliest memories as a child was of my first cat, a Calico named Bonnie. Currently, I have a 17 year old kitty named Vegas. She was a kitten when I adopted her from a shelter while I lived on the east coast for a few years. I regretted my decision to temporarily leave Las Vegas - hence the name I gave her. She has been my constant companion through thick and thin, including the move all the way across the country to come back home. We’ve been partners for a very long time. In my free time, I’ll be found at Red Rock or Charleston, or bagging a new peak somewhere out of town. Otherwise, I might be watching a movie or reading a book. I love the adventure, but I also appreciate the simple things. I delight in caring for others’ cats simply because it’s a nice thing to do. I find enjoyment in being their “temporary human” and providing companionship to kitties while their real guardian is away.

Hi, I’m Shannon! I have been in love with cats for as long as I can remember. When I was 4 years old, I got my first two cats, ‘Tinkerbell’ and ‘Dusty’. I gave those cats every ounce of love my heart had to give, I was hooked and I became a crazy cat (little) lady from age 4 and on. In Middle School while most kids were babysitting, my best friend and I started our own pet-sitting business. We called ourselves “The Critter Sitters”. We would care for pets of all shapes and sizes, but most common were fish and cats because they were easy to care for due to their independent nature. This is one of the things I love most about cats. They can be fiercely independent but completely needy. A little over a year ago, I lost my fur baby unexpectedly and way too soon. My heart was broken. I was completely devastated and I was not ready to rescue another quite yet. I had also been considering a career change during this time but unable to commit to this change. It was when I saw the Dan’s advertisement for The Comforted Kitty, when everything came together. I left a job that I was completely burnt out from, to begin a job that I still cannot believe I get paid to do. In addition, my heart was able to heal from the loss of my fur baby by caring for so many incredible kitties. I have never been so happy and fulfilled. It is my genuine pleasure to be able to care for and play with your kitties. I treat each as if they are my own.

"I love how different each cat is. They all have their own personalities that they will show you if you are patient enough. I love when they gain your trust and come up to you on their own. They have the sweetest purrs and their curiosity is so funny to me."
Hi all! My name is Andie. I am a mom of three super awesome kids and three out of this world pets. Two of them cats. Lucy and Scout. We just adopted a beautiful happy fun loving Pitbull. My 14-year-old son and I just took up cooking and baking together to keep him busy for the summer. He has such a talent for cooking. We love visiting family in New Mexico every chance we get. I'm from Santa Fe originally and I miss it all the time. Family also loves going fishing which is coincidentally where we adopted scout. Or she adopted us.

"Cats are such interesting and intelligent creatures and each one is so unique. Their personalities and attitudes can have you wondering what's really going on inside their little heads, but the serotonin boost from hearing a mew or a purr, or getting a headbutt is unmatched. "
Hi, I'm Maggie! I'm originally from the Bay Area and moved to Las Vegas in 2020. I've owned many cats throughout my life, whether they found me or I found them. Currently I have two cats- a 6yo shy and quiet boy that moved here with me, his name is Peanut (aka Piggy) and a 2yo vocal and cuddly boy that recently adopted us, we're calling him Yuki (aka JustABaby; pictured). I spent a lot of time caring for friends' and neighbors' animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, etc) growing up. I've always loved and been drawn to animals of all kinds, but cats hold a special place in my heart; caring for them is fun and fulfilling. If I'm not hanging out with a cat, I'm either playing video games, doing yoga, or at a metal/hardcore show.

“Thank you so much as always for taking care of [Pepper and Prudence]. It really is greatly appreciated and I can tell that both are quickly growing more and more comfortable with you :)” – Jake E. (Las Vegas)

“Maggie did a wonderful job taking care of our 20 year old cat, Champagne, while we were out of state for a week. Champagne was taking new thyroid medicine and was healing 20 stiches at the time. Maggie was so careful and attentive, sent us daily detailed updates. We are so grateful and will absolutely ask her to watch Champagne again should we need it.” Marc W. (Las Vegas)

Judy S.
"I love the way you can put anything down in front of a cat and they just have to tap it! They are so intelligent, fiercely independent, unbelievably flexible, the best snugglers, self cleaning and can make anything they do look cute! There is so much about them that amazes me and there is no greater love than that of a cat."
Hi, my name is Judy and I currently have 5 kitties that either found me or that I rescued. I use the word ‘currently’ because it is always subject to change! I live by the motto, “What’s one more cat?” For many years I used to treat myself to a new kitty from the shelter every Christmas. That’s how I ended up with 13 and decided I needed to stop doing that. The minute I touch a kitty, I fall in love with it. So please know, if I take care of your cat(s), I am going to love it like it was my own. I have had a plethora of animals of all kinds my whole life but cats have always been my greatest love. I’ve had cats that wouldn’t use the litterbox and cats that were biters and cats that were bullies and cats that tore up my furniture, but I never loved them any less. I knew that they needed to be taken care of and I managed to always make it work. I am proud to say that I have found several missing cats over the years because I know the best time to look for them is in the early morning hours (1-4am) and I will spend hours just sitting quietly and listening, and I will do it endlessly. I grew up with cats and have had my own my entire life and I will continue to always have them in my life. I have already decided that eventually I will adopt only senior cats. Nothing could soothe my soul more than to know they are in a loving home when it comes their time to cross over the Rainbow Bridge. Judy happily serves Las Vegas.

“We love it when Judy takes care of our kitties! She’s so good with them and we always come home to happy cats!” -Barbara & Bill S. (Las Vegas)

“We appreciate Judy because not only is she great with our cats, she also takes good care of our house. She goes over and above to make sure everything is okay.” -Mike & Cindy L. (Las Vegas)

“My job requires a lot of traveling and it really makes me feel so much better about being away so much just knowing Judy is there with my furbabies. They really love her!” -Sarah P. (Las Vegas)

“We call her Aunt Judy and our four little angels (kitties) love her! We never worry about them when she’s taking care of them because she plays with them at every visit and makes sure she gives them all lots of lovin’. We can tell from her texts how much she truly cares about them. She’s the best!” -Rick V. & Steve M. (Las Vegas)

Amy S.
"I love cats because they're each special and unique. If they accept you and love you, it's everything! Having a cat around is soothing; hearing that purr, watching them play, it always brings me peace and happiness!"
I grew up with cats and have never been without at least one. I believe that a house is not a home without a cat! One of the first cats that I remember as a kid was diabetic. Her name was Kitten. My Mom would give her shots of insulin twice a day. Despite that, she was healthy and lived to be 13. I think that's why I now have a soft spot for kitties that are a bit different. Along with a dog and a parrot, I have six cats and three of them have special needs. Two of my babies are tripods and one was born with a neurological disorder. Don't worry, she's actually a very sweet and happy little girl with the normal projected life span of any other cat. The people that are close to me know that I'm obsessed with two things, cats and hockey (Go Knights Go!). During hockey season, I go to as many games as I can. In the summer months I enjoy being surrounded by nature and taking photos of the wildlife. I'm also perfectly happy staying at home, relaxing by the pool and having friends over. I mostly keep busy with fostering. I always have foster cats and have had as many as 12 fosters in the house, in addition to my own. I have also fostered a few dogs and "foster failed" my current dog Sadie, an adorable shitzu. It's truly a special feeling knowing that you have helped an animal find their forever home...a cat or dog that would have otherwise lived on the streets or died in a shelter. Animals are simply my passion and I love taking care of them all!

“Amy is patient, attentive, trustworthy and safety conscious. Leaving town can be very stressful, but I am confident that Amy can ease the worry for pet parents. She is reassuring, responsive and accommodating. I can tell she genuinely enjoys taking care of animals and feels deeply responsible for their well being. Amy has never pushed an animal out of their comfort zone and that is why I’m beyond grateful for her being one of my top fosters.” – Kylie W. (Las Vegas)

“Thank you so much for the updates! Thank you for taking the time to write me a detailed message. This is the first time we’ve left her with a sitter so I’m happy to hear that it’s going well :)” -Jenny S. (Las Vegas)

provided.” -Eva E. (Las Vegas)

“Amy has watched my animals (both dogs and cats) when I have left town. Even when she lived an hour away in Arizona, I would make the effort to drive them out to Amy’s house because I knew that they would always be in the best possible hands with her. Amy understands the domestic and natural needs of animals and she goes out of her way to make sure those needs are being met.” -Sonja C. (Las Vegas)

“Amy has helped me many times with the care and feeding of my many pets, particularly our cats. Her knowledge and caring manner are what really is important to our family. Amy is very responsible, dependable and loving to all animals.” -Susan P. (Las Vegas)

Kristen G.
“What I like most about cats is discovering their unique personalities and quirks. The love and companionship they offer once you’ve earned their trust is so rewarding.”
Kristen is originally from San Diego and relocated to Las Vegas in 2018. Currently she has two kitties who are full of energy. They definitely keep her on her toes with their endless curiosity! Growing up, Kristen always had cats of all ages as part of her family in addition to many neighborhood cats that adopted her as their part time family. Friends often entrust Kristen to care for their cats and dogs while they’re away knowing she will care for them like her own. Kristen’s free time is spent spoiling and snuggling her two kitties, Lexi and Mister Big. She loves exploring and hiking the beautiful nature Las Vegas has to offer. When the summer weather gets too hot, you’ll find her in a pilates or yoga studio

"Cats are very mysterious independent and you have to respect them. They are truly amazing animals and I truly enjoy being around them."
I am a mother of 2 cats, 2 dogs and 2 grown sons and I am married. I have been a pet sitter since I began my career as an RVT many years ago. I have worked for pet sitting companies as well as clients from the veterinary hospitals that I worked at. My love for cats became more and more when I started volunteering at a cat rescue group. I am a very responsible, reliable and consciousness person who takes pride in what I do and of course my dedication and love for animals make it easy to care for them. I treat everybody's cats like they are my own. I am confident in giving pills, oral meds, fluids and insulin. I have cared for cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, fish and reptiles.

"I love that cats each have such distinct personalities that, when given the opportunity, will always shine bright. From sassy to chill, each one is unique and ultra special."
I have had cats ever since I can remember. Some of my first memories involve cats. The first pet of my own was a cat who lived to 19. She was the epitome of calico and certainly had the attitude that some people equate to calicos and tortoiseshells. It wasn’t until years later that I decided to try fostering orphaned bottle kittens. Once I started doing that I “foster failed” a few times and it seems that whenever I need a new cat in my family one just finds us. With work, I love the challenging cats. Often it simply takes quiet moments just existing in the same space before eventually the kitty comes around and I’ve made a new friend for life. In my spare time I love to crochet cat toys and beds and take road trips and, of course, spend time with my dogs and cats.
