What do you do if you have to travel and can’t take your cat with you? When you have to go away, knowing that your precious cat is being looked after by a trustworthy sitter offers you peace of mind. But where do you look for someone you can rely on? Fortunately, you have a variety of options, ranging from professional pet boarding facilities to casual pet sitters like friends or relatives. Depending on your preferences and your cat’s requirements, boarding your cat outside of your home or hiring someone to look after them in the familiar surroundings of your home may be preferable.
