Cats recently edged out Seattle’s dog population by 17%! (In case you missed our post, click here!) 

But, just like dogs, Seattle’s cats also need daily visits ensuring their physical well-being and overall happiness.

 

7 Reasons Your Cat Needs a Sitter

Yes, dogs typically need more attention during the day to do “their business;” but cats need daily care too! Cats are creatures of habit and maintaining their normal schedule is critical to their overall well-being (we recommend two visits a day).

  1. 7 Reasons Your Seattle Cat Needs a Pet Sitter!Things can happen when your beloved cat is left alone all day. Curious noses and paws can create accidents and possible home damages requiring attention especially when cats are bored. Inquisitive cats can also become trapped and cut off from food, water and the litter box. Even things like power outages and air conditioning breakdowns can put your beloved kitty at risk. Regular visits by a reliable Seattle pet sitter ensures your cat (and home) is safe!
  2. What if your cat gets sick? It’s always important to monitor their physical well-being for any sudden, potentially dangerous health issues. (For example: feline urinary blockages can suddenly appear and can be fatal in as little as 3 days.) Bored and nosy cats can also come across unfriendly cat items (like Q-tips, dental floss, rubber bands and more) which can pose choking hazards and life-threatening blockages. Also, if your cat requires medication, it’s critical to keep to a regular and consistent dosing schedule.
  3. While litter boxes solve the obvious need during the day, most cats refuse to use a dirty box and may begin relieving themselves in other areas in protest. A professional cat sitter will also monitor your cat’s elimination patterns making sure they are normal with no signs of issues.
  4. 7 Reasons Your Seattle Cat Needs a Pet Sitter!Cats are naturally active and love playtime! Regular play offers important health rewards in the form of physical and mental stimulation. It also reduces boredom; helps eliminate erratic behavior as well as the potential for destructive behavior like biting, clawing and messing in the house!
  5. Petting and brushing a cat is a wonderful way to bond with a feline and build a relationship of trust and comfort.
  6. Even if there is enough fresh food and water left out for the resident cat(s), it’s important to make sure they are normally eating (and drinking to avoid dehydration) and not adversely reacting to:
    • Schedule/routine changes;
    • Loneliness because of their owner(s) being away for an extended period of time; and/or
    • Anxiety or stress.

Also, any remaining canned food needs to be thrown out and replaced since it does spoil.

  1. And finally, using a professional and dependable cat sitter offers you, the owner, complete peace of mind no matter what life demands!

  While many people assume cats are solitary creatures who are perfectly fine on their own for extended periods of time, cats are actually social (some more than others) and without a doubt, creatures of habit. Our domesticated cats rely on us to attend to their daily needs and protect them from any unforeseen accidents or issues.   7 Reasons Your Seattle Cat Needs a Pet Sitter! So, the next time you need to leave Felix alone for a day or a week, make sure your precious feline is protected and looked after with regular visits by a professional and licensed cat sitter like Cosmic Home & Pet!
