The Differences Between Cat Boarding and Cat Sitting

Cat sitting has recently become a popular choice especially for multi-pet families, the definition of cat-sitting is when a person either resides in the owners home or stops by for a couple of hours each day to feed your pets. A benefit of hiring a pet sitter is that it allows your cat to stay at home in their familiar environment.

However, if the pet sitter that you have hired has been organised to drop in only for a few hours during the day it can cause your cat a lot of confusion and anxiety. Our pets don’t understand where you have gone or why they have been left alone for a long period of time.

Cat Boarding definition; is sending your cat to a facility/ resort where specialised professionals will take care of your cat alongside other feline borders. At Cat Utopia Resort the benefits of having your cat board with us are that your cat’s daily play, exercise and feeding routines can be kept the same throughout the duration of their entire stay. This also includes them seeing a familiar face for up to ten hours each day.

With both Pet sitting and Cat Boarding, there is always some great ones, good ones and terrible ones and if you are unlucky and have a horrible experience, it can leave you never wanting to trust anybody again with your furry companion. At Cat Utopia Resort, we encourage you to book a tour with our nannies to spend time with you going through the facility and personally customise your kitty stay. But if you are extremely excited right now to view Cat Utopia Resort in the comfort of your home or while you’re on a break at work, you can take a virtual tour on our website.
