Cats are truly creatures of habit. Having The Pet Maven as your personal in-home cat sitter will assure your cats’ environment and routine is maintained. In your absence, their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being will be paramount to the care provided to them. Not only will stress be minimized for your cat, but you will have the added comfort knowing they will be attended to by a professional, knowledgeable and caring cat sitter.


An in-home consultation with your cat sitter is always provided before engaging the services.

  Email, phone and text updates with photos can be provided while you’re away.

  Upon your return you’ll be provided with a written update on your cat’s behavior while you were away.

2. Overnight Cat Sitter

Sometimes cats require a little extra tender loving care in the overnight hours. As an addition to our individual cat visits you can also request a sitter spend the night with your cat, kind of like your cat having its own "ca-jama party". Very young cats who need help with socialization or who are afraid to be alone would benefit from having an overnight buddy. Older and/or special needs cats who may need regular administration of medication and supervision would also benefit.


Two Overnight Options:

10 hours: $65

12 hours: $75


$5 additional for administering oral, topical, insulin injections

$8 additional for subcutaneous fluids


3. Private Cat Boarding (Coming Soon)

Are you having work done in your apartment and need to get your beloved kitties into a safe, toxic free environment. Or, you would prefer not having someone visit or stay in your home, then private boarding can be an excellent option. We are working hard to get you the most dedicated boarders in homes that are suited to your kitty kings and queens.
