How do I know if the cat sitter is trustworthy?

Cat sitters who sign-up to Cat in a Flat absolutely adore kitties, they love spending lots of time with them and would treat them as if they were their own.

All our cat sitters have to fill out a detailed sign-up form and submit a current proof of address, which then gets individually verified by our support team.

Cat sitters' profiles will not be visible unless fully approved. 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 cat minders they choose. We encourage all owners to meet the cat carers beforehand for extra peace of mind.

The reviews you see on cat sitters profiles are from genuine bookings, one cannot be left unless a confirmed booking is completed.

All cat sitters and the cat they're looking after will be covered by our Cat in a Flat Guarantee as long as they have been booked and paid through Cat in a Flat's cat sitting website or cat sitting app.

Police Checks:

We encourage all pet 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 find further information about acquiring a police check for your cat carer job here.


*Please note: Cat in a Flat is independent of all its members' businesses and although they have 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 on your own judgment as to their credibility.
