Cat Ladies Cat Sitting provides cat sitting services in client homes located mostly in north and central Seattle neighborhoods. A typical day of cat sitting involves driving to approximately 6-8 different client homes between 9am - 6pm and caring for our cat clients. The services we provide include feeding, administering medications, cleaning litter boxes, bringing in mail and packages, watering plants, etc. Each visit is around 30 minutes long (with the exception of holiday, holiday-adjacent, and holiday weekend visits) and you are allowed to make your own route, so the work day is very flexible.
The best candidates will have either prior veterinary experience, professional pet sitting experience, or a love of cats combined with domestic work experience (nannying, caregiving, housecleaning, etc.) Job candidates will need a car, proof of car insurance, a smartphone, and must be able to provide three local job references (not friends or family) and pass a background check.
To apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume, a brief description of why you'd be a great fit for the job, and three local job references.
Thank you and hope to hear from you soon!

Former Cat Lady Lea L. says, "I had a wonderful time working for Cat Ladies Cat Sitting for over a year. It is very rewarding being able to work with animals and having so many fur friends. I had hundreds and hundreds of friends and it didn't feel like work. Especially when I was waving a feather around or getting cuddles on the couch. You form special bonds and relationships with your clients. And they are the cutest clients!!! If you love cats you will love this job."
