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 or eTransfers
Making a commitment to you and your kitties means I may have had to turn down another client
Cancellation of 4 or more days prior to services starting will be at a full refund
Cancellation notice of 48 to 72 hours will be at a 50% refund - may be applied to a future booking within a reasonable period of time
Cancellation notice of less than 48 hours will offer no refund - may be applied to a future booking within a reasonable period of time
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.
