What Our Cat Sitters Can Do
If you have to leave for vacation or work, you can count on the Comforted Kitty to be there for your family by offering cat sitting that caters to your cats’ temperament. Every cat is different, but that doesn’t negate one simple fact. Cat’s need daily visits when their family is away on vacation. It doesn’t matter if your cat hides at the first sight of a person or is a social butterfly, our cat sitters can give your cats plenty of playtime and attention.
Feeding & Watering
We get it, traveling is hectic. Airports are crowded, kids are crying, you have no idea what germs are floating around. As if there isn’t already enough stress, you also have to worry about what’s going on at home. Is my cat getting fed? Are they eating the food I left out? The questions keep adding up. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about what’s going on at home when you work with the team at Comforted Kitty. We take care of all feeding, fresh watter, and more so your cat is well fed while you’re away.
Litter Box Cleaning
Nobody likes cleaning their cat’s litter box, but we do it because we care for our cat’s happiness and health. When you’re out of town, it doesn’t really matter if you like cleaning the litter box or not. Somebody still has to do it because “Whisker’s” world doesn’t stop turning just because you’re gone. A dirty litter box can lead to costly health consequences for your cat like urinary tract infections. A dirty litter box can also lead to urine and feces being tracked on your carpet and wherever else your cat sits. After your next vacation, come home to a clean litter box and a happy cat.
During our first visit, we’ll discuss the possibility of giving your cat required medication while you’re away. Believe it or not, this is one of the most common reasons that people take their cats to doggy or cat hotels. Because they have specific medication/feeding needs and they don’t want to risk these needs not being met while they’re away. Well, you’re in luck now that you’re working with Comforted Kitty. Your cat can stay at home and you can be assured that they’ll get all the TLC and medication they need administered.
Socialization & Playtime
With Comforted Kitty by your side, there’s no more need to feel guilty about leaving your cat at home. Regardless of how independent cats are, they do miss you when you’re gone. Whether it’s because they miss the cuddles or are afraid the person that feeds them is never coming back, it’s still the same. You can ease your anxieties a little bit by enlisting us to provide a cuddle here and a cuddle there for your kitty. It’s our job to turn a lonely kitty into a Comforted Kitty.
Along with taking care of your kitties, our sitters can provide basic home care. There’s no need to hire someone else to water your plants, bring in your mail, or check in on your home’s security. Having neighbors who are willing to help out is nice, but they have their own lives to worry about. Having someone dedicated to having your small household chores get taken care of. Plus you get to save that neighborly IOU for another time!
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!
