    How many visits might I need from my pet sitter?

    Cats

    A minimum of one visit per 24 hours is required (special needs cats may require more). At a minimum litter boxes should be scooped at least once a day, as well as fresh water be given at least daily. Also, if a medical problem arises care can be given in a more timely manner. In addition, the vast majority of cats need and enjoy human interaction and companionship.

    Dogs

    A minimum of three visits per 24 hours is required for dogs. This is for the comfort and well-being of your dog, as well as to avoid the long-term health risks of going too long without a potty break.

    Please note: For pets without special medical needs, visits are made within a 2-3 hour window of time requested by the client. For pets with special medical needs visits may be made with a smaller window of time to accommodate those needs.

    For safety and liability reasons I cannot pet sit for any pets that are deemed to be aggressive and a serious bite risk and/or sick with a contagious disease. This determination will be made when we first talk and/or at the meet and greet. I cannot risk an injury that may result in missing work or lost wages, or the worst case scenario, a permanent disability. For pets with a contagious disease the possibility of passing a disease onto a client’s pet or one of my own pets is a risk I cannot take.

    All pets must always must be up to date on their vaccinations.
