TIPS FOR MAKING THIS A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR KITTIES, FOR YOURSELF AND "STAY AT HOME KITTY"
Make sure all information provided is current and accurate
Inform your vet that you will be away and give him/her my information
Make sure you leave enough food and litter to cover the duration of your time away
While I will do my utmost to ensure your home looks lived in the most obvious sign that you are away are an unmown lawn or unshovelled drive and
sidewalks; arrange to have someone look after these while you are away
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Ideally booking cat sitting services should be done at least 2 - 3 weeks in advance but I try not to turn anyone down so contact me
Extra key or security code should be available for pick up at the time of booking
Payment to be made at the time of booking and at this time I only accept Cash Cheques or eTransfers
I do not charge for cancellations, however if your trip is cut short for any reason and you return making visits to the end of the anticipated kitty service time not necessary refunds will not be issued. While thing do happen unexpectedly -- having booked your kitty sitting services may have meant turning someone else down.
Should anything unexpected arise during your time away (vet, food and/or litter shortage, plumbing, etc.) all attempts will be made to contact you or your designated emergency contact for instructions. However, any expenses incurred plus a 15% service surcharge will be reimbursed to "Stay at Home Kitty" as soon as possible upon your return, preferably at the time of key return.
