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.
Cat sitting is one of Tailster’s most popular services. However, it’s important for both our carers and owners to understand the risks associated with boarding a cat away from their normal environment.
