We are so grateful for The Comforted Kitty!! Sara took wonderful care of our cats, Bonnie and Crocodile, while we were away for a week. My husband and I were immensely pleased to receive a sweet email report with adorable pictures every day. The best part was coming home to very happy cats and a tidy home!!
The Comforted Kitty was the first cat-sitting service we tried, and we haven’t needed to go anywhere else since…the website is excellent.
This is such a professional and outstanding catsitting company! They make sure to get all the info from you about your home and your pets before the first visit, and he even asked questions I didn’t think to tell, such as where cleaning supplies were just in case…
My cats were very well taken care of by Tera. She played with them, pet them and gave them lots of love. The Comforted Kitty is definitely the best cat sitting company I’ve ever used!
Our cat is 18 years old and needs special care and attention and I don’t trust just anyone with that responsibility, let alone letting a complete stranger have access to our home. But Daniel and Poppy stepped up and did an amazing job. They are professional, respectful and completely put us at ease with their understanding, reliability, integrity and careful attention to detail.
Their online interface makes it easy to schedule, input/update cat-care information, and get emailed daily updates and photos during the sitting. They also offered to take in the mail, water any plants, turn on and off lights, etc…Great sitters allowing for better peace of mind and I’d definitely recommend!
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!
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.
It was worth every penny to have someone who really cared about our cats and gave them some love & play versus someone who would’ve just come in to feed, clean the litter box and leave. Thank you so much Marion & Daniel!
What Our Cat Sitters Can Do
Whenever life takes you away from home and your pets, Comforted Kitty will be there to take care of your furry family member. We tailor our services to fit the needs of your cat and don’t just operate out of a template. During our first in-person visit, we’ll take detailed notes about your cat’s routine so that everything from the amount of food they get, what their favorite activities are, whether they like to eat alone or not, etc. are taken care of. Cats generally require at least one visit per day, but we are always open for more.
Feeding & Watering
The truth is anything can happen when your feline friend is left alone. If you think your cat gets around the house while you’re there, just imagine what they can get into while you’re away. Has your cat ever tipped over the water bowl? Or refused to eat their food until it’s served a specific way? Maybe found a way to knock something off the counter and scatter their food everywhere? Cat’s will be cats and they require a specific schedule and order of activities when it comes to their eating habits.
Litter Box Cleaning
Sometimes the litter box can be hard for us to sniff out, but other times its location is “smellfully” obvious. Regardless, your cat sitter will make sure that your cat’s litter is clean and ready to use on every visit. Luckily, cats make it easy for us to clean their litter and we make it our job to make sure they are taken care of. Litters need to be cleaned at least once a day and should be completely changed at regular intervals.
We utilize many strategies to make sure that the cats of our clients have their medications administered safely and effectively. Through our many years of experience, we’ve discovered the most effective strategy is the strategy that YOU use. This is why we pay extra attention to how you do things on our first visit. A healthy cat is a happy cat and that’s what we’re all here for!
Socialization & Playtime
Most cats that we work with love that they get to stay at home all day on the couch, eat their favorite foods and live the pampered life. They’ll be sure to make the most of their alone time, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need socialization. You see, just like us, cats are social creatures that feed off of the presence of others. Whether it’s just hanging out for a few moments or actively providing activities, we’ll make sure your cat is loved on while you’re away.
When you send your cat away to a cat boarding facility or cat hotel, you need to worry about who will collect your mail and look after your house. This is the case with cat sitters. When our sitters check up on your kitty, they will make sure your home is in great shape. When we first come for an in-person visit, we bring a clipboard and our listening ears so we can be sure to handle every little detail about your home while you’re away.
Here’s how we can help with household tasks:
- Home Security: Adjusting lights, shades, windows, and other home fixtures and also, assuring that the front door is secured.
- Mail Retrieval: A telltale sign to burglars that nobody’s home is a mailbox stuffed full of mail. We’ll pick up your mail and set it somewhere safe inside your home.
- Plant Watering: We can do minor plant watering to ensure your second pets don’t go dehydrated for long.
- Trash Bin Retrieval: Have a trash can full of trash that needs to go out or come back in from the curb? Don’t worry; you don’t have to plan your vacation around trash day anymore.

First Time Hiring a Cat Sitter?
Why should I use your cat sitting and cat care in-home services? What makes The Comforted Kitty better than my friend, neighbor, other local pet sitting companies, or the tech apps (Wag, Rover, etc.)?
At The Comforted Kitty, LLC, we believe that your cat sitter — the person caring for your cat while you are away on vacation — should be a person who is reliable, responsive, and responsible. But all too often, well-intentioned family, friends, and neighbors (who might seem like an affordable and trustworthy option) actually fall short in these areas. Simply put, they might lack the commitment that comes with a contractual obligation. We bring that to every job—along with our love of your feline furry friends (and babies!).
We take great pride in our professional cat sitting and cat care policies and procedures that allow us to serve as the always-dependable option whenever a client chooses to go on a well-deserved vacation.
For example, we offer a convenient phone app that allows you to receive daily visit updates and pictures of your cat when we visit your home, while also allowing you to communicate directly with your sitter. You can also use the app to request cat sitting services and pay your bill anytime, anywhere.
Secondly, we are passionate about cats—so much so that cats are the only pet we cater to in this business! We don’t care for dogs, birds, horses, lizards, and “also cats.” By exclusively serving cats, it allows us to focus all of our experience on providing nothing but the absolute highest quality in-home cat care available. And as a result, countless returning clients comment to us that their cat was more relaxed — and themselves were more relaxed too — when they returned home, than in the past when they had a friend, family member, neighbor, or dog sitter care for their cat. Our dozens of exceptional five-star reviews on Yelp, Google, and Facebook attest to this!
Finally, unlike the new and trendy dog walking and pet sitting apps that are part of our modern “gig economy”… all of our partner cat-care professionals are background-checked and undergo a very selective application process. Moreover, all of our Bay Area and Las Vegas cat sitters are all bonded and insured. Additionally, you will always get to meet your assigned cat sitter beforehand so that you can be sure they are a good fit for you, and especially, your cat. At The Comforted Kitty cat sitting and in-home cat care, we are all about developing solid and long-lasting relationships with our clients. Such a relationship can only be built on a solid foundation of trust and transparency.
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 they can come over to your home, helping to see if they are a good fit for you—and especially your cat. It also is an opportunity for the sitter to familiarize themselves with the entire visit cat care routine, retrieve your house keys, and ask you any questions or concerns they have so that they are totally prepared for the sittings. This meeting has a $15 fee.

Do you really stay for the whole visit length?
I am worried about giving a person access to my home. What happens if your sitter injures my cat or damages my property?
What are the benefits of using a pet sitter or dedicated cat sitter as compared to boarding my pets?
Cats LOVE to stay in their own home. They attach to their space (especially by scent) as though they are “married” to your home. Keeping their usual daily routine intact is paramount to their psychological wellbeing. Don’t believe us? Spend a day observing your cat and you’ll notice they do they same things around the same time of day, EVERY day.
Boarding your cat stresses them out tremendously. They endure unnecessary travel trauma in the dreaded carrier just get to the facility. They are then put into a small cage or “hotel” room where they reside almost the entire day. Sounds cozy, right? The stress triggers at these facilities can manifest anxiety disorders with your cat, such as decreased appetite, diarrhea, obsessive fur grooming, and other behavioral problems. They also are exposed to fleas, worms, and other parasites that other animals at the facility may have. Then, they must use a “rental” litter box that is unrecognizable for them by scent. And when you pick them up, they will be miserable and likely stay that way for the next few hours or longer when back home.
On the other hand, with drop-in cat sitting visits in your home, your cat gets to stay in their familiar, comforting, environment. They can play with their favorite toys, sleep in their favorite bed, and soak up the sun in their favorite sunny window spot. They also get to use their usual litter box—something that is much more important than one would think! The icing on the cake is that they get total cat care that is tailored exactly to their tastes and desires. There is no competing with other foreign cats in the home. You get to meet the person who will be exclusively caring for your cat and they will provide to you daily visit updates with pictures of your cat too. Plus, you get the added benefit of having someone who will be there to keep an eye on your home and property, giving it a lived in appearance and taking care of such things as mail retrieval, plant watering, and adjusting the lights and shades. The bottom line is that you will be able to relax on your vacation, having the peace of mind that your cat is comfortable at home. Best of all, you get to come home to a kitty that is happy and excited to greet you at the door!
