Cat Care Visit information

Booking information

Please note: As of April 2019 I can accept only a very limited number of new clients.Please contact me if you are looking for a cat sitter. We'll discuss your situation and I'll let you know if I am able to help you out. 

How to contact me:

My working hours are 8 AM to 12 PM and 6 PM to 8 PM daily.

Email is the quickest and most reliable way to reach me (annem@mycatsitter.ca). I check my email several times a day and reply to messages as soon as I read them. I prefer email as it gives me a written account of any arrangements we make.

Cat Care Visit information

Cat care visits are arranged as follows:

15 minute visits:
Includes feeding, refilling water bowls, giving medications, scooping litter, one-on-one time with your cat (s) and clean-up on last visit. Also, by request: mail collection, limited indoor and outdoor plant watering, feeding fish, birds, or pet rodents, emptying de-humidifiers, house checks for insurance purposes, taking green bin to the curb and back.

Suggested length of visit for most situations:

  • 1 or 2 visits a day
  • 1-4 cats
  • 15 minute visits may not be available at Christmas time or on Holiday weekends (see below: Quick Visits)

Cost : $15.00 + tax $2.25 = $17.25
 

Please note: I am no longer offering 30 minute, or alternate day visits. 2 visits a day will be limited to clients whose cats are ill, elderly, or have twice a day medication or special feedings.

Quick-check visits:

 A Quick-check visit lasts approximately 7-10 minutes. It includes feeding, refilling water bowls, litter scooping and spending a few moments with your cats to make sure they’re doing well.

Quick- check visits can’t be booked. I implement them only when scheduling is heavy on holiday weekends, and exclusively at Christmas/New Year’s. When a regular day is fully booked I might suggest that a client consider a quick-visit if the client lives in the vicinity of an already scheduled visit. 

Cost: $15.00 + tax $2.25 = $17.25

Booking for Holiday weekends:

      Holiday weekends include Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

      Holiday weekends book early and heavily. Check the Booking Calendar before making your plans.

     Please contact me at least 2-3 weeks in advance

      Unless a holiday weekend turns out not to be as busy as expected, please assume that only Quick check visits will be offered.

      Two Quick check visits a day are available when medications, health, age, or feeding schedules require a double visit.

Booking for Christmas and New Year’s, 2019

    I will not be accepting new clients at Christmas/New Years.

    I plan to limit the number of cat care visits between Dec 20th and Jan 4th to no more than 20 a day. I recommend regular clients make reservations before the end of              October.

    Although there is no extra charge for individual holiday visits, there is a minimum charge of $105.00 and $15.75 tax for $120.75 between the 20th December and the 4th      of January. If you are requesting between 1 and 7 visits the charge will be $120.75. 

    All visits will be Quick Visits (please see above)

     Reservations for cat care at Christmas must be paid in advance and in full by the end of October, 2019. Cat care visits will not be booked until payment 
     has been received.
 
     If a cancellation occurs on or before the 30th of November payment will be refunded less a cancellation/refund fee of 30% of total charges 

     Please note that there will be no refund for cancellations received on or after the 1st of December.


 

Marathons, Rock Concerts, Parades and other high traffic events:

I’ve learned (the hard way) that driving in Peninsular Halifax during traffic-magnet events is well-nigh impossible. I only offer 1 visit on these days and will schedule the visit at a time that won’t conflict with the event. If you live in an area that will be engulfed by an event and your cat needs a timed medication (such as insulin) while the event is underway we’ll develop a “contingency plan” to ensure that I am able to give the medication on time

Payments, Cancellations and Refunds:

Payment for cat sitting services is due at the time of my first visit. Please leave a cheque or cash for me to pick up at your home. Direct deposit by electronic transfer is quickly becoming the preferred method of payment for most of my clients. Payment by direct deposit is due the day before or on the day my visits start.

  • There are no charges for the cancellation of cat care services before my first visit is made and before payment has been received. Please email as soon as you know you no longer need visits.
  • When payment has been made in advance, and cat care services are cancelled before the first visit  payment will be refunded less a 30% refund processing fee. 
  • If visits are cancelled after payment has been received and visits have begun, a 30% refund processing fee will be withheld from the cost of the remaining visits  and the balance will be returned to you.
  • Visits cancelled within a set of visits will not be refunded. For example, a client decides to return home briefly and, while at home, temporarily cancels cat care visits. Visits resume when the client departs again. The cancelled visits are not subject to refund, nor can the charges be carried ahead to future visits.
  • Refunds are not offered if a client returns home early with 1-3 visits remaining on the schedule. A 30% refund processing fee will be charged to refund 4 or more visits.
  • Please note that the cost of cancelled visits can only be carried ahead and used to cover the cost of future visits within the same month as the cancelled visits. Cancelled visits can not be carried ahead to another month.

I welcome any questions you have. Please email me at annem@mycatsitter.ca
