If you need someone to take care of your cat while you are away, hiring a cat sitter can be just what you need. Compare cat sitter profiles, read reviews from other cat parents, and search by hourly rates or experience to find the right match for you.
The national average rate for a cat sitter on Care.com is $13.25 per hour as of February 2021. This rate can vary depending on the specific needs of your cat, how many cats you have at your home or apartment, and how many hours or days the cat sitter will need to come over.
What questions should I ask a cat sitter before hiring them?
You want to make sure any potential cat sitter has a genuine love of animals and will be responsible while they're in your home. Ask about the kinds of pets they grew up with or currently own and how much experience they have cat sitting. Be very specific about the needs your cat has and make sure they're comfortable with your cat's demeanor before agreeing to hire them. Also discuss how often you want to be updated on how your cat is doing while you're away.
