How often do Kitty Sitting visits occur?

That is entirely up to you to decide as the kitty pawrent!

What is the difference between Kitty Boarding and Kitty Sitting?

In summary:

  • Kitty Boarding – your kitty heads off for a staycation in their own hotel cabin, and is cared for by our Kitty Caregivers in the hotel! 🏨

  • Kitty Sitting – your kitty stays in the comfort of their own home, and our Kitty Caregivers head over to them for their care visits. 🏡

Which is the better option for my kitty? Kitty Boarding or Kitty Sitting? 🤔

We're glad you asked this million dollar question!

Frankly, it really comes down to both you and your kitty's personality and preference – and here are some pointers to consider that may be useful in aiding your choice:

Might be more suitable for:

​Kitty Boarding (Hotel)

Kitty Sitting (Home)

Behavioural characteristics (Kitty)

  • Generally confident, interacts well and is friendly with new people, not intimidated in new environments, travels well

  • Very much a people kitty, enjoys hooman companionship and company i.e. a lap cat, sleeps and sits right next to people

  • Very timid – runs and hides at the slightest noise, does not come out when friends are over in the home;

  • Displays signs of aggression in fearful situations – hissing, swiping, growling, moves to attack etc.

Health status and upkeep of records (Kitty)

  • ✅ Sterilisation record

  • ✅ Yearly vaccination record

  • ✅ FIV / FeLV status record

  • ✅ Parasite prevention record

  • Requires closer monitoring of health due to certain diseases (i.e. diabetes, seizures, post-op monitoring, etc.)

  • Missing some or all of the health records

  • Immunocompromised / weak immunity due to certain diseases (i.e. cancer, FIV, FeLV, etc.)

Practical considerations

  • Home renovation

  • Home relocation

  • Any reason why kitty staying home is not feasible or ideal

  • Discomfort at the idea of a third party coming over to the home

  • ​Multiple kitty households and logistical nightmares 😅 (i.e. high vet costs to maintain yearly health requirements, moving all kitties to the hotel and back, etc.)

  • Impromptu / late notice trips out of the country

  • Unable to obtain all health records in time
