How A Cat Sitter Can Make Your Life Easier

Here at Tailster, we love hearing success stories from carers and owners once they’ve completed a booking, with many of our users relying on one another time and time again to care for their beloved pets.

Finding the perfect carer doesn’t always have to be a one-time thing. Yes, you need them there and then, but by building up a solid relationship you’ll be able to call on them for their services whenever the need should arise.

Once a flexible booking is set up between you and a Tailster carer, you’ll be able to inform them as and when you require their care, making for a smooth and simple transaction.

Do I Need A Cat Sitter?

Whilst dog owners commonly seek support in caring for their dog whilst they’re away – be it for a night or a fortnight – the same isn’t always true for cat owners.

As the more stubborn and independent of the UK’s favourite pets, there is a common misconception that cats require less care than dogs, meaning that they may often be left alone for periods of time. Of course, we’re not suggesting that they’re neglected, rather that owners often don’t recognise that cats aren’t as independent as they first thought.

Although the choice may seem valid, it can lead to stress and apprehension for both the owner and the cat, meaning that leaving them to fend for themselves may not always be the best option…

Top Quality Care

Building a solid relationship with a cat sitter means that you can be assured that your cat’s always going to receive top quality care.

At Tailster, we fully vet all of our carers before they’re approved onto the site, meaning that you can be certain that each and every one of them has the potential to be the perfect fit for you and your needs.

Furthermore, we always recommend a meet and greet between owners and carers before any bookings take place. This will help to ensure that you’re comfortable with the carer and that they feel confident with the job at hand.

Remember, if ever you’re unsure or need any support, we’re always available to give you a helping hand.

No Need To Worry

Having trust in a cat sitter means that you’ll never have to worry when you leave your cat alone.

Cat sitters tend not to have set working hours, meaning that they’re happy to pop in for as long or short a period of time as you like, for a mutually agreed fee.

So, whether you’re off on a day trip out or away for the weekend visiting family, your carer will be able to adapt their care to suit your needs.

Well, Why Not?

Another benefit of having a cat sitter on hand is that you’re no longer restricted to having to be home at 5 for dinner time.

Much like dogs, cats love routine, meaning that they expect certain things at certain times, with us as devoted owners always around to tend to their needs.

With a cat sitter close by, however, you’ll no longer have to cut activities short or hold off plans in order to cater for them.

As long as you let the carer know that there’s a possibility that they’re needed and they agree to this, there’ll be no more slipping out the back door to rush off home.


Reassurance is everything, and knowing that you have someone else who cares for your cat almost as much as you can do you the world of good.

As rewarding as pets are, we’re guilty of constantly worrying about them, which can have a significant affect on our lives in general.

Far from having to rely on next door neighbours and family members to pop in and check on things, however, having a cat sitter that you fully trust means that you’ll always have peace of mind, no matter the distance between you and your cat.
