    This was my first time using a cat sitter and I feel very lucky that I got Isha. Charlie is a rescue cat, and kennels were just not working out for her, so this was the perfect solution. Getting daily pictures, and coming back to a happy cat means that I will definitely contact Isha again when I go away. She's clearly a massive cat lover, so I can't recommend her enough.

Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs

Will my cat forget me after two weeks away?

No, your cat won’t forget you after two weeks away from home. Cats have excellent memories – though this varies from animal to animal as it does in humans.

Cats can remember their owners for years after being separated from them. So rest assured when you return, your cat will remember who you are and your shared bond. To remind your cat of you while you’re away, leave them something with your smell, such as a piece of clothing. The scent will be reassuring to your cat, especially if they suffer from separation anxiety.

Is cat sitting or boarding in a cattery the right option for my cat?

Every cat is different, and no single solution suits everyone. However, the vast majority of cats would prefer to be cared for in their own home.

Cats don’t like change, they don’t like to travel, and they don’t like sharing space with unfamiliar cats. Cat sitters will pay individual, tailored and loving attention to your cat or cats based on their preferences. Therefore, cat sitting is the best solution for most cats, and it’s also more convenient and less expensive for cat owners.

What is cat sitting?

Cat sitting is when you pay someone to look after your cat in your own home while you’re away.

A trusted cat lover will come and care for your cat every day, either with drop-in visits or by cat sitting overnight. A cat sitting visit includes feeding your cat, changing the water, cleaning the litter tray, playtime and cuddles. A cat sitter will also send you regular updates about your pet.

Cat in a Flat’s 5-star sitters offer a personalised cat sitting service that is suitable for cats of all ages and health. Cat sitting is a great alternative to a cattery.
