As a cat owner you know they are painfully independent pets. You may wonder some days if your cat even remember who you are ! But the experts say cats do need and love human interaction – but always on their terms.  Sometimes a cat will follow you all over the house. They don’t want food; they don’t need water. but will often meow until they get a belly rub or head scratch ! Why should you consider hiring a pet sitter for your cat or cats? Whether you are leaving town or you work a long shift, here are a few reasons why he needs in home pet care:

* An indoor cat cannot hunt for survival and must rely on someone to provide food and water for him.

*If left alone for days , even with adequate food and water, your cat will often become depressed or even destructive. Even cats in multiple cat homes need some human interaction on a regular basis.

*They need a pet sitter to play with and exercise with them.

* Indoor cats may be well trained to use a litter box, but they will never master the task of cleaning it themselves. For this, they will always need us.

* Your cat may become ill while left alone, or even have a household accident. Pet Sitters can be available to see that they get to the vet.

So, consider speaking to a professional pet care service about what your needs are as a responsible cat owner.

 Your cat will appreciate the attention and care of a good pet sitter.

After receiving any veterinary care needed, including spay or neuter, the dogs are off to school. Dogs are crate and house trained, taught basic commands and good manners. Most importantly they are socialized with people and other dogs. When they graduate they are ready to be adopted for a $500 fee. Some dogs are even specially trained as service dogs to aid owners with special needs.The program receives no government funding and relies on the adoption fees and donations.
Take a minute to look at these fine graduates !
