Complimentary Client Consultation
Let's get acquainted in your home! An in-home meet and greet with your furry family is the purrfect opportunity to get to know each other and go over your pet's routine. During this time, your pet sitter looks forward to explaining how the service works and answering any questions you may have. Meet and Greets are conducted weekday evenings after 6pm, for convenience to you and your sitter. Short notice consultations without two weeks prior arrangement will be charged a one time fee of $25. Emergency consultations scheduled with less than 24 hours notice are subject to availability and are charged $40. We require a minimum of $60 in services scheduled for all new client requests. Additional visits or extended visit times may be scheduled if the minimum requirement is not met.

Your privacy is very important to us.

City Kitty Sitter uses digital technology for all business purposes. For this reason, we cannot conduct business without digital consent by the Owner. Verbal consent is not an accepted form of scheduling or modifying visits. Sitters cannot accept requests via email, phone, or text. Schedule requests and profile changes are submitted by the client and approved by City Kitty Sitter. Our easy-to-use pet sit portal allows our clients the ability to set up reoccurring visit schedules, modify services, and make special requests based on their fur family's needs. Profiles, pet care instructions, and home protocols are kept in an organized fashion and records are safely stored for future ease of use by utilizing our secure online pet sit software.

*Client consultations are performed as a screening process to ensure every client's needs are matched with the service we provide.

**We absolutely love open communication - however, please limit all communication including calls and emails during holidays, weekends, and peak pet care hours, unless it is an emergency, so we may provide your animals 100% undivided TLC.

Please be aware that we do NOT receive texts on our business line, 720.320.3902, and ask that you refrain from calling/texting your sitters directly, since our sitters cannot be reached while on their other jobs.
