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.

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.

Meet Your Sitters

Rosalie A.
Hi! My name is Rosalie, and to say I love cats would be a severe understatement. My love of cats passed down from my parents, as we always had multiple cats, and the strays always seemed to find us, knowing we'd take them in. As a seasoned cat enthusiast, I bring a profound love and respect for our whiskered friends to my work. Through extensive experience with my own cats, my friends' cats, and my volunteer work at Austin Pets Alive!, I have gained a deep understanding of cat behavior. Caring for your cats is not just a job for me, it’s a heartfelt journey, driven by a deep admiration and affection. You can rest assured I will always go the extra mile to make your feline companion feel safe, loved, and properly cared for. I am committed to ensuring their comfort and happiness by creating a stress free environment. Of course, I hope to become friends with every cat I meet, but will always allow them to take the lead. I consider it an honor when a cat decides I’m worthy of their friendship, as we all know they choose their companions wisely. When I’m not hanging out with cats, you can find me in my studio, or out snapping photos. I’m an artist, with analog films being my main medium. In 2023 I stepped out of my comfort zone into the world of cinematography, and made my first short film. As you can imagine, cats are some of my favorite subjects, so you can look forward to plenty of photos of your cat while you are away. I look forward to meeting you and your feline friends!

Hi, I'm Natalie. I'm located in Austin in the Jollyville area. I am going to start a pre-vet program at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor next year. I have 5 cats. Their names are Little Socks, Gabrielle, Snowpaws, Tiger, and Suki. They're my world. I'm excited to meet you and get to know your cat!

Hi my name is L Pharr and I've been around animals my whole life. I grew up around my aunt who runs an animal rescue so I've been able to learn all about cats and dogs. I've gotten the privilege to take care of both animals before. I love cats and their personalities as well as getting to know them. I work in theater and entertainment but I am an animal lover at heart. Getting to be around animals is my happy place and getting to be around any animal brings joy in my life.
