Cat Sitting Service

At Fancy Whiskers, we believe that your cat sitter should be reliable, responsive, dedicated, and affectionate. We bring that to every job. We will visit your four-legged friend once a day or provide two daily visits to adhere to your cat’s eating schedule. Every time your dedicated professional cat sitter comes, your cat will get fresh water, replenished food, a clean litter box, play time, and cuddles. We will be happy to gather your mail, water plants, adjust lighting, open and close blinds, to give your home an occupied look. Give yourself peace of mind knowing all is well with your home and beloved cat.
