How do I contact cat sitters?

Vacation care for cats, here is what you need to know.

Looking for a cat sitter - search and select

Once you've entered in your ZIP code and found a few cat sitters in your neighborhood - click through to their individual cat care profile pages to read about the type of cat sitting service they offer. 

Contact a cat sitter

To request availability and start your chat, click the ‘Contact Sitter’ button. If you are not already logged in, you will be asked to sign up for free. The system requests your name, email and cell number to enable the conversation between you and the contacted pet sitter. Make sure the vacation cat care dates are correctly selected and leave a little note for the cat sitter. Our system will then notify the cat sitter. 


Costs will automatically be calculated but can be finalized later. Once you've sent off your first request, you will be asked to create a simple mini profile optionally.

When logged in you can:

  • Contact as many cat sitters and house sitters as you like (we recommend you contact 2-3 pet sitters at a time) 
  • Booking requests are non binding, but should be used to establish availability
  • You can chat with cat sitters through your inbox and make amends to the visits or total charges 
  • Create a profile for your kitties, sharing their details and requirements
  • Have access to your bookings and payments and some useful forms and tips.

Please note that all bookings and payments must happen through Cat in a Flat in order for the Cat in a Flat Guarantee to be valid
