Overnight visits in your home ($60) - Your sitter will stay in your home overnight to keep your cat company and make sure that all of their individual needs are met. The sitter will arrive at your home no later than 9pm, and will leave in the morning after feeding, watering, scooping, and cuddling. And playing!
Overnight visits in our home ($40) - Your pet will stay overnight in our sitter's home, where kitty will receive the same loving care as they would in their own home. Providing a favorite toy, blanket, or bed will help to keep the transition as stress-free as possible. You will provide all food, treats, and medicine as needed.
Complete litter box change ($10, in addition to cost of visit) - the whole shebang! Your sitter will empty, wash and dry the box, then refill with plenty of clean litter.
Subcutaneous fluid therapy or injectable medications ($8 each treatment, in addition to cost of visit)
Oral medication administration ($5, in addition to cost of visit) (Topical, eye, and ear medications are administered free of charge) **No charge for oral medication that is mixed in food.
Standard daily visit - 30 minutes ($22) - includes all of the above plus playtime, plant watering, bringing in the mail, and taking out the trash if needed.
Deluxe daily visit - 60 minutes ($35)- includes all of the above plus extra play and cuddle time.
(If you would like your cat to be visited more than once a day, each Standard visit will be discounted to $20, and each Deluxe visit will be $32.)
The initial consultation in your home is free of charge. This is a nice time for your cat and his sitter to get acquainted, and will last approximately 30-45 minutes.
Each day your sitter will give your cats fresh food and water (after cleaning the bowls, of course!), scoop out the litter box, and spend some quality time with them to make sure they are happy and healthy. Plus, you'll get a daily progress report (you choose - email or text!) so you can find out whether Kitty was naughty or nice while you were away!

*** If you are not able to provide your sitter with keys during the initial visit, and the sitter must make a separate trip to pick them up, there will be a $10 key pick-up fee. Also, if a sitter must make a separate trip back to drop off keys, there will be a $10 key return fee.***
We can help you figure out an arrangement to make key exchange more convenient for everyone, while avoiding fees.
If you have fish, birds, reptiles, or other small animals that will need special care as well, please contact us directly for pricing info.
