FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My minimum stay is generally 7 days. I usually sit for periods from one week to one month. If you have an extended vacation, business trip, sabbatical, or deployment coming up, I am willing to sit long-term. The longer the stay, the more notice I'll need to put you on my calendar. Some clients book a year out if they have dates set for certain predictable events.

BOOKING THE CAT SITTER
IT IS ADVISED TO CHECK AHEAD, prior to booking travel, to be sure I am available to help you. If I am already booked, send me a request anyway, in case a cancellation occurs. Cat sitters who stay over are hard to find.
First, we make an appointment for me to come to meet you and your cats, and to pick up your key. I will ask you to complete an information sheet that I will need while you are away. When I come to pet-sit, I normally arrive just after you leave; and, because most clients like to come home from vacation and not be bothered, I leave shortly before you return home. Payment by cash or check should be left for me when I arrive. I also accept PayPal and Venmo.
The Cat Sitter is available to cat-sit all over the Seattle/Eastside area. Bellevue, Mercer Island, Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell, Shoreline, Edmonds, Ballard, Magnolia... as far north as Mill Creek; and south to West Seattle. If you live outside the Greater Seattle Metro Area, please contact me to check availability and rates, which are subject to change. I am willing to travel to Oregon, especially Portland, Eugene, and the Coast - because that is where I am from!
