We personally try to get to know all cat sitters who sign-up to Cat in a Flat through a phone call or Skype interview ( they are then given a ‘Loved by Cat in a Flat' badge on their profile).
Cat sitters profiles will not be visible unless fully completed and we have their proof of address. A completed and detailed profile indicates that they are dedicated to Cat in a Flat and are being upfront about their experience in caring for your cats. This transparency allows owners to be able to make their own opinions on the sitters they choose. We encourage all owners to meet the sitters beforehand for extra peace of mind.
All cat sitters and the cat they're looking after will be insured as long as they have been booked and paid through Cat in a Flat.
We encourage all sitters to do a Police check. If they have one it will be clearly mentioned on their profile page.
Police checks don't have an official expiry date and it's up to the owner to decide if they accept it or not.

*Please note: Cat in a Flat is independent of all its members' businesses and although they registered with us and have agreed to abide by our code of conduct we are not a policing organisation and do not accept any liability for them. Your contract is with your chosen cat sitter and therefore you should make your own enquiries and rely of your own judgment as to their credibility.
