Why you should Choose Hillview Cat Boarding vs a Pet Sitter to care for your puss

Posted on

Recently we have been receiving calls from cat owners asking us to take over the care arrangement of their puss from a pet/house sitter. Sadly, more often than not, we hear their beloved pet has “escaped” their home and ended up with the local pound from where we usually retrieve them. Don’t let this happen to your fur baby! Book your puss in for the love and care they deserve whilst you are away at our cattery. 

Why book a cat boarding facility versus a pet sitter

Cats have a strong fight-or-flight response so when their routine is changed they often fight it or take flight. Often well-meaning pet owners think that the familiarity of home is best for their puss. However, staying home can sometimes create other unintended stresses.

In the past, our cattery near Geelong has had situations where pet sitters have fallen ill or had to cancel unexpectedly. We have also had cat owners ring in distress as their arranged pet sitter decided last minute they wanted to take a holiday themselves instead of looking after the cat. You can imagine how stressed the owner AND cat were when they arrived at our local cattery near Geelong!

Make sure your cat is well-cared for

At our five-star luxury cattery, no last-minute cancellations ever happen. And booking can be made well in advance to get the suite your puss desires.
